Ty Newydd easily sleeps six people in three bedrooms, with a modern interior and layout that makes it perfect for couples, families or friends who want a comfortable home-away-from-home while they enjoy the best of the Llyn Peninsula and nearby Snowdonia National Park. The holiday cottage is in the historic village of Clynnog Fawr, within walking distance of the village shop and beach.
Clynnog Fawr is a friendly Welsh village in a fantastic location with easy access to the coast, mountains and countryside. Step out of the gate at the rear of the cottage and find yourself on a footpath leading to the hills where you can enjoy the freeing sensation of being one of the few people in the visible landscape. Pilgrims stopped at Clynnog Fawr en route to Bardsey Island, and the area still has a sense of peace thanks to its natural beauty and big sky views.
Trefor's beach and harbour are a short drive from the cottage and Aberdesach is also pleasant for a walk by the seafront. Ten miles to the North of Ty Newydd you will find the historic town of Caernarfon with its Unesco World Heritage site castle, the site of the investiture of the Prince Of Wales. The enormous castle and fortifying stone walls have stood the test of time and are one of the world's finest examples of their type. Conwy, Beaumaris and Harlech Castles comprise Edward 1's "Iron Ring" and should certainly be on the itinerary of anyone interested in British history. Other nearby places for a day trip include Portmeirion, Bangor and Nefyn.
The Snowdonia National Park attracts millions of visitors every year not only for its scenic landscape but also for its wealth of outdoor activities. Walking, mountain biking, climbing, and caving are just a few of dozens of ways to explore by land, while kayaking, coasteering, sailing and surfing are popular ways to enjoy the beaches, lakes and rivers.
North Wales is stunning at any time of the year which means that it is always the perfect time for a holiday at Ty Newydd.
