In a truly stunning part of the world that combines that raw wilderness of North Wales’ rugged mountain ranges with the cathartic rinse of the coast, this retreat on the Llyn Peninsula is an adventurer’s paradise. Perfect for romantic getaways and solo escapes with your two canine chums by your side, this cottage packed with creature comforts boasts plenty of reasons to explore, and plenty of reasons to come back again.

Irresistibly charming, this one-bed, one-bathroom home has everything you could need for a rejuvenating break. Coupled with its very own beach hut on Nefyn beach (available from Easter to October), you and your wet-nosed pals will have all the ingredients for a holiday you’ll want to repeat again and again. Spend mornings sipping hot tea in the courtyard garden as your dogs stretch in the sunshine, before getting creative in the carefully designed kitchen. Fully equipped, you will find everything you could need for meals throughout the day, served around the dining table. Tired out from the day’s rambles, the lounge is a welcome sight with a roaring wood burner – perfect for warming wintery toes and paws.

Emerging each morning from the comfortable upstairs bedroom, the world is your oyster here. Look forward to breathtaking walks through mind-blowing scenery, or, if your dogs can keep up, the front garden has a bike rack so you can set off on two-wheeled adventures. Start from the house or pick up a section of one of the national trails, like Garn Boduan which starts 7 miles away. For games of fetch on the beach, Llanaelhaearn is only 2 miles from Trefor Beach (with seasonal restrictions) and 6.5 miles from the year-round dog-friendly Nefyn Beach. For the best places to eat, you will find ample options in Pwllheli (7 miles).

Quickly lovable little place, felt like home straight away. An untouchable feeling of knowing, comfort and peace. The owners likewise showed their love of the home by the effort displayed. A beauty not to be abused for it is a rare commodity in a world lacking such attention.

Comfortable, well equipped, and cosy cottage, ideally situated to explore north Wales. Owners next door friendly and helpful. A short drive to Trefor beach where we walked our dogs every morning and there is a beach hut in Nefyn for our sole use but unfortunately the weather was not kind enough for us to use that.
