Top 5 Holiday Cottages in AberdaronPublished on 27 Jul 2022 by Amy Greenwood
The idyllic Land’s End at the tip of Pen Llŷn where the River Daron flows into the Irish Sea. Take a look around our top 5 holiday cottages in Aberdaron.
This ancient fishing village at the tip of the Llŷn Peninsula is just about as far west as you can get on the Welsh mainland. It’s also a bit of a stunner – the coast here is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
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.
The mainly sandy beach is a short walk from the centre of the village and looks out across the waves of the dramatic Irish Sea. It’s a beauty. There are great views to Bardsey Island, which sits around two miles off the shoreline.
Aberdaron beach sits on the Wales Coast Path, with stunning cliff top walks in both directions. Spring and summer is a particularly wonderful time for walking with carpets of flowering plants, seabirds and frequent dolphin and porpoise spotting.
There are plenty of locally run cafés, shops and restaurants in the town, including some outstanding (and fresh as you like) fish and seafood eateries, and a brilliant village bakery.
