Seafront Holiday Cottage North Wales | Yr-Odyn

Pet FriendlyNear BeachReal Fire

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.

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.

A very well equipped cottage with beautiful gardens .
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay .
Lacks coat hooks on bedroom and bathroom doors .
We found that taking a small fold up trolley helped considerably with luggage on arrival and departure .

Just had a week here wish we booked two as we were just starting to relax when had to come home. The cottage is so well equipped and cozy especially when log fire on.. The views from the cottage are next to none and beautiful sunsets.. It is remote and you need a car to get to places. We went to Abersoch and Aberdaron and David the owner who was lovely recommended to go to Ty Cogh Pub which was quaint.. Can’t wait to go back

We stayed for a week. This was one of the best cottages we’ve ever stayed in. A beautiful location with very nice views. On the inside, everything was very clean. On the outside, we had to clean the windows of the livingroom and the entrance because it was almost impossible to see the nice views through them. The kitchen is very well equipped. The bathrooms were clean, only the rattling toilet seats are intended for smaller toilet pots. Nice big beds.
We highly recommend staying here. We hope to come back.

We loved every minute of our stay at Yr Odyn and only wished we’d booked two weeks instead of one. We didn’t want to leave! Everything was perfect, the bungalow, the location, the views, the cleanliness and relaxing atmosphere inside and the lovely gardens outside. We would definitely recommend this extraordinary holiday home.
