Approached by narrow country lanes, at the end of a long tar macadam drive at the foot of Anelog mountain, this 16th century semi-detached farmhouse is extremely popular with returning guests for the past 35 yrs. It retains its olde worlde”charm and atmosphere with 20th century mod cons and low-beamed ceilings.

A garden gate leads directly on to the National Trust headland and the coastal path with the sea lapping at the rocks. Superb walks along the coastal path to Whistling Sands and beyond or Bardsey Island lookout the other way, discovering rocky inlets, sandy coves and little islands en route. Even views of Wicklow mountains and the Irish coast on a clear day! This is a sea fishing and nature-lovers paradise with seals, dolphins, and various uncommon birds to spot!

The beautiful sandy beaches of Whistling Sands, Porth lago, and Aberdaron are no more than 10 minutes' drive. The village of Aberdaron has a general store, post office, off license, newspapers, bakers, along with two hotels with welcoming bars and snacks, and a famous old teashop. The historic church virtually on the beach is well worth a visit. A new National Trust Visitors Centre is on hand too!
