One Bedroom Chalet Style Holiday Cottage With Sea Views | Yr-Odyn Bach

Pet FriendlyNear Beach

Based on the Llyn Peninsula, Yr-Odyn Bach is a one bedroom, chalet style holiday cottage with sea views. The floor to ceiling glass doors make the most of the stunning landscape and create a very tranquil space.

The holiday cottage is set in the village of Aberdesach, 5 miles south of Caernarfon. Aberdesach is a bit of hidden gem and the position of the cottage, right on the coast, makes it very special and the perfect getaway for a holiday by the sea.

The cottage is open plan with a sitting room, kitchenette and dining area. The distressed wooden floorboards add to the seaside feel and naturally, the focus of the room is the huge windows. There is everything you need to cater for you and your holiday partner during your time here.

Back through into the entrance hall at the back of the cottage gives you access to the bedroom and bathroom. The double bedroom, like the living area, benefits from the floor to ceiling windows, giving you some of the best views possible to wake up to. Simply decorated, it will be the perfect place to get your rest and relaxation in.

The bathroom has a massage shower, WC and washbasin.

Floor Plans




As mentioned, Aberdesach is a bit of a secret, handed down from generation to generation of only a few groups of holidaymakers.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.

Pwllheli is about 15 minutes to the south where you’ll find the harbour and a great place to go sailing. A big market town on the Llyn Peninsula, there are some restaurants and cafes to enjoy a bite to eat and there are lots of independent gift shops to mooch around and get some mementoes of your holiday.

Plas Glyn-y-Weddw is just up the road towards Abersoch which is an old stately home that has been converted into a fabulous art gallery, gift shop and cafe – a very lovely place to while away an afternoon. From the gallery, you can walk down to the beach and you’ll find a beachfront restaurant which is a great place to have dinner.

Most people head up Snowdon from Llanberis on the far side of the mountain, some 20 minutes 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.

Zip World is 20 minutes inland towards Bangor and 30 minutes south will bring you to Portmeirion Village. as you can see you are well located to enjoy a real mix of different activities and see different things in and around North Wales.

A lovely base for exploring North Wales.
Thank you Dafydd for cake ,fizz and courtesy phone calls.
Would definitely recommend.

As mentioned by previous visitors -a freezer /or freezer compartment would be beneficial to enhance the G&T at end of the day !!

Sally Shaw

Thank you for a lovely weekend away! I just wish I’d booked a longer stay. Aberdesach is definitely an undiscovered place and provided me with the perfect place to relax. David is a great host and we had a couple of good chats on the phone; his suggestion of visiting Pant Du was spot on. While you enjoy this little chalet, check out the paintings on the walls! The chalet is well equipped and extremely comfortable. I’ve promised David I’ll come back – for longer!

Thanks for the fizz and cake. Had a brilliant few days – the chalet was great and the weather was amazing. Loved the location – private garden and steps away from a virtually deserted beach – which Walt absolutely loved! Blue skies and super sunsets. As mentioned before – a fan would help as it was really hot. Also,unfortunately there is no freezer or ice compartment – so don’t bring along an ice cream or expect ice in your cocktails. Shame 🤪 But everything else was great!👍Thank you x


A thoughtful welcome gift and arrival/departure call from the owners. The chalet is very clean and well equipped and the garden is safely enclosed for the dogs. The views were incredible and the proximity to the beach is hard to beat. So quiet and relaxing, we absolutely loved our stay and cannot wait to return.


This was our third stay at YR- ODYN- BACH and we just love it. Its got everything you need and always really clean. Having the beach on the doorstep is brilliant – and being set back off the coast path its really private. The garden is a real suntrap and the sunsets are amazing. The owners are really friendly and helpful. Lots to do locally. Wish we could go there every weekend!

We had a short break at Yr-Odyn-Bach and loved our stay. Property clean, comfortable & has everything you need. Location superb with stunning views & sunsets. David, the owner, very helpful. Would definitely return.


This was our third stay at Yr-Odyn-Bach and we had another very relaxing stay, listening to the sea and watching the amazing sunsets from the garden. It has everything we need for a short break.

Margaret Townsend

Delightful stay at Odyn-Bach in a beautiful location on the beach. The sunsets are stunning and go on my Facebook page every time I stay here.

Andrew Morgan

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Yr Odyn Bach. Lovely setting, very private and peaceful. Ideal location for visiting everywhere on the Llyn peninsula. A very relaxing break.

First time coming to the area and we weren’t disappointed.
The chalet was perfect and exactly what we wanted – clean, well equipped, bright and airy.
Amazing sunsets and even woke one morning to a pod of dolphins directly in front of us that we watched for over an hour!
The only issue we found is there are no windows, only sliding doors and we had a mini heatwave meaning the nights were very hot, would be good to have a fan there to use if needed. But this didnt take away anything from our enjoyment.
Dog owners – to access you have to cross a metal grated bridge that was very painful for the dog to walk on so had to be carried over, just something to consider.
We found the location ideal, in the middle of being able to get into the mountains, head back inland or out further on the peninsula.
Word of warning lots of pubs and restaurants don’t open every day and when they were open were busy so suggest you plan and book in advance not to be left disappointed.
Overall we were very happy with our stay, a lovely welcome gift and attentive owners checking everything was ok. Will definitely be coming back.
