One Bedroom Apartment Overlooking The Beach At Nefyn | Glanmor-Nefyn

Pet FriendlyNear BeachNear Pub

Glanmor-Nefyn is a one bedroom apartment overlooking the beach at Nefyn. Bright and airy, it comes with fantastic sea views along a gorgeous sandy bay. The location is pretty special.

The apartment is within walking distance of the famous Ty Coch Inn at Porthdinllaen - consistently voted one of the best beach bars in the world, and highly recommended for a pint and a ploughman’s. It also comes with a lovely decked balcony, ideal for more private al fresco dining and drinks.

Glanmor-Nefyn sits above an excellent bakery - the Caffi Traeth Nefyn (Nefyn Beach Café) which is extremely handy if you enjoy delicious freshly baked breads, croissants, cakes and pies. The breakfast run couldn’t be more convenient - it comes highly recommended.

Inside this one bedroom apartment overlooking the beach at Nefyn you’ll find a lovely open plan kitchen diner and living space. Recently refurbished, everything is brand new, spotless, and beautifully presented.

The kitchen area is a very decent size, and well equipped with a coffee maker, toaster, microwave and electric oven and hob. There is a dining table for two, and in the sitting room area you’ll find a very comfortable leather sofa with a wall mounted smart TV.

The double bedroom is gorgeous. Bright, comfortable, and with the most magnificent views - including from bed - along the sandy bay. It’s so close to the beach - when the tide is in you’ll be able to hear the waves lapping on the sand from your bed.

A patio door opens out from the bedroom onto the decked balcony terrace, which has a dining table and chairs. You’ll find the smart bathroom - which has a large walk in rainfall shower - on the other side of the living area.

This one bedroom apartment overlooking the beach at Nefyn is in one of the peachiest locations we know. Nefyn is a lovely seaside village on the north coast of Pen Llyn, with an attractive harbour and some of the best mountains-and-coast views in the UK.

Nefyn’s sandy beach curves south west around a small headland to the tiny old fishing village of Porthdinllaen, with its world-famous Ty Coch Inn (a must-do pub on any trip to Pen Llyn, don’t miss it). It’s a lovely easy walk along the beach, and an idyllic spot for a pint and a ploughman’s, but do check the seasonal opening times before you visit.

Cast your eyes up the coast in the other direction, and you will see the three peaks of Yr Eifl, home to an Iron Age hillfort that towers above the sea. This is also a fantastic walk, though a little more strenuous than the beach (Yr Eifl, also known as The Rivals, is the highest point on Pen Llyn, at 564m). On a clear day, from its summit, you can expect to see as far as the Isle of Man, to the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland and even as far as the Cumbrian peaks of the Lake District. It’s stunning.

If walking’s your thing, then you’ll be pleased to know that Nefyn sits almost exactly midway along Llyn’s north coast path, part of the Wales Coast Path. Pen Llyn has an exceptional and dramatic shoreline, with endless coves, cliffs, bays, secret sandy beaches, stacks and offshore islands to discover and explore.

In the village of Nefyn, the recently reopened Llyn Maritime Museum tells the story of the peninsula’s often stormy relationship with the sea. It’s a great place to get a better understanding of the local heritage and culture. Nefyn is also famous for its fantastic headland golf course.

Follow the coast of Pen Llyn around 13 miles south of Nefyn and you’ll arrive at Aberdaron. Aberdaron was the last stop for medieval pilgrims on the way to Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island), the ‘Isle of 20,000 Saints’, and has a rich Celtic history. A centuries-old inspiration for poets, artists and musicians, it retains a sense of the mystical and wild. It’s a great place for walks and picnics, and in the summer, you can follow in the footsteps of those pilgrims and take a boat trip to Ynys Enlli. If you are visiting Aberdaron, why not call into Becws Islyn Bakery for a warm Welsh welcome and an afternoon tea!

The charming coastal village of Criccieth is around 15 miles in the other direction, with its traditional Welsh tearooms, some great places to eat out, as well as some very decent fish & chips. Expect attractive independent shops and some very browsable galleries and antiques. There’s even a traditional Welsh clog maker who still has his workshop in the town, and a medieval castle to watch over it all. It’s a great place to explore.

This one bedroom apartment overlooking the beach at Nefyn is a short drive from some great North Wales activities and adventures, including Glasfryn Parc with its stand up paddleboarding and clay pigeon shooting (10 miles), and Bounce Below, Zip World and Llechwedd slate mine at Blaenau Ffestiniog (30 miles).

For slightly more relaxing days out, head to the Cwrw Llyn brewery in Nefyn with its brewery tours and tap room (0.5 miles), Portmeirion and its Italian style fantasy village (22 miles), or Harlech with its steep winding streets and UNESCO-listed 13th century fortress (30 miles). Or how about a day out on a steam railway? The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland railway are a splendid way to see more of the stunning landscapes of North Wales, with regular departures from Porthmadog (20 miles). Abersoch, with its buzzing bistros, bars, boutiques and beaches, is around 12 miles away.

We booked this place because it was right on the beach and I needed to hear the sea when I woke up!
So big tick there.
It’s a perfectly fine little bolt hole for two.
Everything you need for a few days is there and the place is in good condition.
Obviously in peak season and in good weather the road down to the beach and parking is a challenge, but not a deal breaker.

We certainly picked the right weekend to visit as we had wall to wall sunshine ☀️ the apartment is fabulous and has everything you need in the perfect location – we couldn’t have been closer to the beach which was perfect for walking the dog. We will definitely be booking to stay here again, although the cafe/shop/bakery below is far too handy 🤣

Had a relaxing holiday, amazing views from the apartment, plenty of space for two. Easy to find from the instructions provided and was nice to have the beach to ourselves some days! Lovely walks along the coastal path and easy to get around to other places of interest in the area. We would have appreciated a few more bits of cooking and dining equipment, just little things like a trivet, baking tray egg cups, dish cloth and bio degradable bin liners. A collection of leaflets about local attractions and recommendations for eating out would be great too. Overall had a lovely time and enjoyed our first time visiting this area of wales.


We stayed here for three nights with our two cockerpoos.
What a beautiful apartment and the location is idyllic. A stones throw away from the local beach.
Also in easy reach of Abersoch and surrounding areas.
The apartment is very tastefully done and has everything you need for a short stay.
Sitting at the breakfast bar every morning with a view of the ocean is amazing.
We are already looking to return.


Stayed for 3 nights in April with a dog and perfect weather! It was like being on the Amalfi Coast. Great location and the decor still has the feel of being brand new. Parking is a public car park across from the accommodation. We were lucky and got a space each time we returned but that could be to do with timing of the stay (directly after Easter and mid week). Being directly next to the beach, it would be great if storage was improved for beach gear and a dust pan and brush for sandy feet!

What a beautiful apartment.. cosy yet modern and very clean. It has been furnished to a very high standard! We loved it and would definitely recommend it. The website says no WiFi but I can confirm it is available.
Lots of wonderful scenic walks right on your doorstep and a gorgeous beach which our dog loved.
The coastal path at the top of the hill is closed due to recent landslides however it can be accessed from steps behind the buildings on the beach instead.
We enjoyed having the option to relax and watch Netflix in the evenings.
The cafe underneath is open weekends, 10-4 during the winter months & we treated ourselves to a coffee & cake after a long walk. All in all it was the perfect place to celebrate a special birthday …
Many thanks to the lovely owners.

Fantastic accommodation in stunning surroundings all mod cons, reclining sofa, WiFi, smart TV, would recommend most highly many thanks


My wife and myself loved the time away. Even my old faithful dog seemed to sulk on the way home. The accommodation was fantastic in every way comfortable. Well decorated. Warm. And all the amenities you have at home. The views are amazing as you sit at the breakfast bar having breakfast. When you wake up in the morning and open the blinds your rewarded with an amazing view. And you can sit on the balcony with a glass of wine listening to the waves and watch the sun go down. All in all and I know I have gone on a little but can’t wait to return and would advise anyone to take a break here. Once again thank you for a lovely time see you soon.😁😁👍


Spent the October half term week at Glanmor. Had the best week, apartment is so lovely. It’s small but so well designed for two. From the breakfast bar with views of the sea to the super comfortable reclining couch to watch Netflix. Pretty much has everything you need in the apartment. We had some sunny days and some very wet days, the heater pumped out a lot of heat to get everything dry after getting soaked also making the apartment very cosy. The terrace was a lovely place to sit and watch the sun rise and sun set. The café underneath is fabulous, pasties, pies and cakes galore. The beach is on the doorstep, beautifully clean with clear blue sea. It’s an hours walk to the Ty Coch Inn and what a beautiful walk it is and definitely worth it! We will definitely be returning.

Lovely apartment, perfect location for beach walks with my dogs.
Delicious home baked pizza and cakes in the cafe below.

(couple of points for housekeeping, no bin bag for the rubbish and the wheelie bin outside was locked and no bag for the bed linen)
