Seafront Holiday Cottage North Wales | Yr-Odyn

Renovated and furnished to a very high standard and surrounded by a large lawned garden, this seafront holiday cottage in North Wales provides the perfect base from which to enjoy this unique and idyllic North Wales holiday location. Aberdesach is in a tiny little hamlet called on the northern edge of the Llyn Peninsula, about 5 miles south of Caernarfon. The spot is thankfully a bit of a secret secret hideaway so keep it under your hat for now.

Guests approach the cottage via a small footbridge over the river Desach before entering through a small sunny conservatory. A natural retreat in the morning if the sun’s out but the wind is still a bit too fresh. From here we enter a large kitchen diner. On the left a warming log fire sits within the original inglenook fireplace whilst straight ahead a handsome set of dining tables and chairs sits under some fabulous oil paintings painted by David, the owner of the cottage. (Some truly fantastic images.) To the right we have a sleek modern kitchen complete with a large gas fueled cooking range. A real treat for any eager chefs. A large free standing fridge freezer sits in the adjoining utility room as well as a useful Belfast sink and washer dryer.

From here we walk through some striking glass saloon doors into the adjoining lounge. The lounge is on the seaward side of the house. A large picture window looks west out onto the dramatic coastline barely 50m away from the property. A second picture window ensures the room is bathed with light throughout the day and luxurious seating and some tasteful decorative features means the space is a pleasure to be in. A modern flame effect fire and flat screen TV are perfect companions once you’ve watched the sun dripping into a coppery sea.

We walk back through the kitchen diner to get to the three bedrooms. First we have the smaller twin bedroom. No steps to get to this point so perfect for anybody with mobility problems. The bathroom on the opposite site of the hallway has a walk in shower, wc and washbasin. A modern powerful boiler as been fitted in the utility room so plenty of hot water and heating is provided.

A couple of steps lead us to the two double bedrooms. Both are very spacious, both have king sized divan beds and both have impressively large mirrored wardrobes. The first bedroom has a shower over bath in the en-suite bathroom whilst the second has a walk in shower cubicle. Everything from the quality of the linen to the choice of bedside lamps down to the tiling in the bathroom is immaculate. P.S. The sea views from the second bedroom are arguably even better as the room enjoys a slightly elevated position.

Location

 

As mentioned, Aberdesach is a bit of a secret, handed down from generation to generation of only a few groups of holidaymakers. And you can see why. This small stretch of unspoilt coastline is refreshingly free of any commercial exploitation. So you have to promise only to tell your closest friends and family if you come and stay with us here.

As beautiful as the coastline is you should try and explore a bit further afield during your stay. The town of Caernarfon and it’s famous medieval castle is about 15 minutes to the north. Whilst the sailing harbour town of Pwllheli is about 15 minutes to the south. There are many small tourism businesses set up in the area. Craft outlets like the slate workshops at Indigo Jones and activity centres like Glaslyn go carting track and the Hafan indoor play centre are all within a 15 minute drive.

The mountains of Snowdonia are also a must do. Most people head up Snowdon from Llanberis on the far side of the mountain, some 20 mins away by car, but an assent from the nearer Rhyd-Ddu offers a path less travelled for experienced walkers. The nearby Clynog mountain range is also very popular with keen walkers.

We have just returned from a four night stay at Yr-Odyn.
The cottage is very comfortable, lots of space, warm and peaceful and everything needed for a relaxing holiday. It’s set in a stunning location with a lovely sheltered garden and beautiful sea views. There’s lots to do in the area for all ages but having the beach to explore on the doorstep was wonderful – especially if you like big skies and listening to the waves. It was definitely one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in.

This is a beautiful cottage in a beautiful location, I just worry that it will become too popular and therefore spoiled

We had a lovely mini break at Yr-Odyn this week. The facilities were great and the house was clean, warm & very comfortable. We will hopefully be back in the New Year

We had a lovely stay at Yr Odyn last week. Fab bungalow on the beach. Modern, clean and very well furnished. Very quiet and peaceful location with stunning views from the living room and master bedroom. Gardens lovely for the kids and lovely dining outside. Great to smell the sea air and hear the waves each day its just so therapeutic. Grandkids had a ball bodyboarding in sea. Beach is a mix of pebble and course sand but there are lots of beaches around the peninsular you can visit if you want a change. Weather mixed but that was fine we made the most of each day. Would definately book again (our 4th stay there). Thanks so much David and Iona.

Lovely welcome gifts on arrival and a telephone call from owner Dafydd to ensure we had settled in.
Fantastic place in every way, lots of space and all the facilities you would need washing machine, dishwasher, bath etc.
Great outdoor garden space and patio area with seating and large table to enjoy a bbq and watch the beautiful sunsets.
Children enjoyed paddling in the stream and walking out of the property and going down the little coastal path to the beach. Would definitely recommend Yr Odyn to all, can’t wait to return soon!

Another wonderful week in Aberdesach, this time next door in Yr-Odyn, it’s going to be hard to keep it a secret!
The cottage is stylish and spacious with comfy beds, great showers and well equipped throughout, a real home from home. The location is perfect too, being on a quiet, beautiful beach, with spectacular sunsets, yet ideally situated to explore North Wales. Thank you David and Iona.

We just wanted to say an enormous thank you for having us to stay in your beautiful property. The location was really special, especially the little bridge which our children loved and the views of the sea and the sunset. We had a wonderful and refreshing holiday exploring the area, and your recommendations were brilliant and really useful to have to hand. The house was very nicely furnished and comfortable, with everything we needed and more. We can’t wait to come back or recommend it highly enough. And thank you for the lovely welcome gifts!

Very comfortable house in a great location. We loved being able to walk out of the door and straight onto the beach. Very dog friendly. Enjoyed some great days out – Bedgelert Forest was a highlight.

We had the most wonderful stay at Yr Odyn – from crossing the little bridge over the stream on arrival, to going through the gate into the pretty garden, to walking into the beautiful, spacious property, to the spectacular panoramic views! Iona and David have put a lot of thought and care into the decor, furniture and facilities – all top quality, clean and feels luxurious, which isn’t always the case with holiday retreats. The lovely touches make it a special place; the welcome call, logs by the burner, warm and cosy on arrival, a few nice treats in the fridge, fresh towels & soaps, coffee and tea….and we could even bring the dogs. Of course, one of the main features is the setting – direct access to the beach, coastal path, daily sunsets, and views along the coastline dominated of course by The Rivals! Thank you, we loved our holiday.
