A quintessential family seaside holiday cottage on the Llyn Peninsula | Tyn-Lôn

Pet FriendlyNear BeachHot TubReal Fire

A quintessential family seaside holiday cottage on the Llyn Peninsula, Tyn-Lôn comes with a wonderful garden hot tub and far-reaching countryside views. It sleeps up to six guests in three bedrooms, and well behaved pets are also welcome.

Tucked away on a quiet country lane in the peaceful Llyn countryside, and close to some of the region’s best beaches – including some idyllic secret coves – the setting is pretty hard to beat if you’re looking for a relaxing coastal getaway.

The cottage is a traditional single storey Welsh cottage, which, going back a few generations, would have housed a farming family in one half and their most prized animals in the other.

The local livestock tend to be field or barn based these days, and the cottage has been recently and stylishly renovated. It is a bright, airy welcoming space with original period features framed by contemporary fabrics and furnishings.

The front door opens into a small hallway which is a handy place to kick off your coats and boots. From there, you’ll find two main living spaces, the largest of which is a fabulous kitchen diner, which is really more of a kitchen, sitting room, diner. This is a really sociable space, with a well-equipped – and very new – kitchen, a large dining table and two comfortable sofas.

Double patio doors open out from this fabulous room onto the outdoor dining terrace, with a spacious lawned garden beyond. The views across the countryside are uninterrupted, and the picture of bucolic loveliness.

If you’re after another space to hunker down and relax, there is a second snug sitting room with two sofas arranged around a toasty wood burner and original stone fireplace.

There are three good sized bedrooms in this quintessential family seaside holiday cottage on the Llyn Peninsula. One double bedroom, a king size bedroom with a smart en suite bathroom, and a twin bedroom. There is also a shared family bathroom with a walk in shower and separate bath.

Outside, as well as that dining terrace and spacious garden, there is a wonderful hot tub. The ideal place to relax with a sundowner or two after a day out exploring, or maybe you’d prefer a champagne breakfast? The wrap-around garden is fully enclosed by ranch style fencing.

In this part of North Wales you’re never far from a spectacular beach, but this quintessential family seaside holiday cottage on the Llyn Peninsula is close to some of the very best.

Beyond the golden sands of Aberdaron (4 miles), Porth Neigwl and Abersoch (10 miles) you should really explore some of the lesser known parts of the Llyn that are distinctly off the usual beaten track.

The ‘secret’ cove of Porth Iago is just over a mile from the cottage – a 30 minute walk or a very short drive. It is a stunning west facing cove, with white sands flanked by grassy headlands. The cove is beautiful and relatively sheltered from the wind – a great place for a restorative dip in crystal clear blue waters or a leisurely family picnic.

Porthor, or Whistling Sands, is another gem of a beach near this cottage – around 2 miles. So called because of the sound the beach’s unusually shaped grains of sand make when you walk on them, it is another stunning sheltered cove, but this time backed by steep grassy cliffs.

One of our favourite beaches has to be at Porthdinllaen near Nefyn, around 10 miles from the cottage. It’s home to another beautifully sheltered sandy bay and what is consistently voted one of the best bars in the world – the Ty Coch Inn. An idyllic place for a pint and a ploughman’s, but check opening times before you visit.

More generally, the Llyn’s sandy beaches are brilliant playgrounds for all sorts of watersports including kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, SUPing and surfing. You can take regular boat trips from Aberdaron and Pwllheli marina. Head to Abersoch for surf and paddleboarding lessons, as well as great restaurants, cafés, bars and shopping.

We had a lovely week here with our 16 year old son, 2nd to 9th April 2022. The cottage is nice and spacious with everything you need and has perfect views of farm dotted hills in the distance, which you will pass on the coastal path walk, southwards to the tip of the Peninsula. This walk can be done straight from the cottage via two beautiful beaches, the first Porth Iago, 1.5 mile away and accessed via a farm which is the only direct access to this beach, its probably one of the most photographed as is so secluded, has beautiful clear blue water and so relaxing: then continue southwards along the path for two miles and you will be rewarded by another beautiful beach known as whistling sands and a cafe which serves quality freshly made sandwiches and toasties and some of the best cakes I’ve tasted 😀. We walked, without the teenager, 😜, to the tip of the Peninsula where Bardsay Island can be seen. We did this from whistling sands car park and is 8 mile round trip with some elevation and the views are stunning. Wildstock roam here as there are a few farms along the way. We’ve now got the Wales coastal path bug and will be returning to complete more of this beautiful area of Wales. As other reviews have stated, Aberdaron is great for decent fish and chips, lovely bakery/cafe and well stocked spar supermarket. Abersoch is another lovely but busier beach which is around a 20 mile drive away.

Just got back from this beautiful cottage 19th-26th March, we really enjoyed staying here, its not the first time we have been to this amazing cottage and certainly won’t be the last. The owner Ruth came and said hello to us and even gave us some eggs and Welsh cakes and some advise on were to visit . She was a pleasure to meet, even if my little dog was very excitable and barked at her which she was not fazed haha.
Such an amazing location, so quiet and away from everything but same time was reaching distance of the beaches and lovely walks.
I can’t wait until we can book again to come back here. I feel so at home there.

We have stayed twice in two years at Tŷ’n Lôn, and on both occasions, the first thing we have done on our return home is to book for the following year. Ruth and Gareth welcomed us like old friends, and we instantly felt at home; nothing was too much trouble.

The location is perfect: within minutes by car of Aberdaron, Whistling Sands and Porth Iago, and secluded enough to bolt yourself away. The layout of the cottage is perfect for families with young children; the bedrooms are well appointed, the open plan kitchen/lounge/diner which opens out into the garden is perfect for summer dining, and the winter lounge doubles up as an ideal children’s playroom and snug.

We have stayed in many holiday properties in and around Aberdaron over the years. Tŷ’n Lôn is in a league of its own.

Spent a beautiful week away in this gorgeous cottage. Wonderful views to wake to each morning or gaze at the sunset from the hot tub with a glass of fizz! Lots of lovely places to visit nearby, we stuck to the beautiful beach’s as our dog loves the freedom on the beach! Aberdarron, Abersoch (our favourite) and whistling sands – the latter of which was walkable from the door. The cottage is warm and cosy,loved the little snug by the fire. Thank you, it was just what we needed- away from the hustle & bustle of life!

Cathy Travis

We (2 adults, 2 teenage boys & a 10 month old puppy) had a wonderful week at Tyn-Lôn. Beautiful setting, very comfortable and spotless accommodation and a lovely garden and hot tub to enjoy. Stargazing was a popular activity plus exploring the local paths and beaches on foot or, occasionally, by car. We all felt rested and refreshed as we headed home and our puppy loved his first beach experience. Thank you.

Trevor Morrell

Thanks to Ruth and Gareth for the use of your fantastic cottage and the little extras you left for us. Coastal path and beautiful beaches all within walking distance and the local live stock came to see us every day Porth Colmon is a hidden gem so don’t tel everyone Thanks again Dioni you never let us down

Llecyn heddychlon a braf – ‘tonic’ i’r enaid.
This was not our first time here, and hopefully won’t be our last – always a joy, guaranteed peace and quiet (and luxury)!
Spacious, clean, warm, light, open-plan, easy-living. ‘Away from it all’ and yet excellent wifi and home delivery available including Asda and Waitrose – as long as booked in advance, a real help when it comes to being away for a week – fridge/freezer items especially. Could park up to three cars in the parking area, off road.

Can walk from the cottage to the coastal path, phenomenal views and sunsets – can even see Ireland on a clear day. Beautiful beaches – quite a few of the local car-parks are owned by National Trust – so, free if you are members.
A well-stocked Spar and a great Bakery/cafe in Aberdaron – ‘Becws Islyn’ – (bakery open about 08:30-15:00).
‘Cwt Tatws’ – a small eatery/cafe with ‘eclectic’ shop on farm-land very close to a lovely beach, just beyond Tudweiliog (about 20 minutes’ drive)(Becws Islyn and Cwt Tatws both on facebook).

A true ‘noise-free zone’ AND no light pollution at night – so many stars on clear nights, great to enjoy from the comfort of the hot-tub, even in winter conditions.

An oasis of calm in the busy-ness of life…..
