We had a wonderful time at Pen Hendre, the house was spotlessly clean, the decor was cool and quirky and it had everything we needed for a lovely relaxed stay with our Boston Terrier pup Bilbo.If you're looking for peace and quiet, along with lots of things to keep you entertained (records, tv, loads of board games and beautiful walks nearby) then Pen Hendre is the place for you!

Had a wonderful weeks break at Pen Hendre. Couldn't fault the cottage which has everything you could possibly want/need for a relaxing break. Craig the owner was very responsive to messages when making a query and the whole place was spotless and put together with an eye for design. The area is lovely and perfectly sited for exploring Lleyn and it's many pretty beaches and villages and only a 40min drive from mountains of Snowdonia. Would happily return and hope to do so in the future.

We had a lovely time visiting our family here in Trefor. The house is more perfect than we’d heard! Comfortable, beautifully decorated and cosy for sure

This cottage was absolutely perfect. The cottage is spacious, well equipped and extremely clean. The beds were the comfiest I've ever slept in for years. There was an Alexa in each room which was a huge hit, my children loved this. A record player with some fantastic records, an original Nintendo and sega mega drive, more DVDs than I could watch in a year! Something to please everyone, for every taste, whether that be a film, series or documentary, along with Netflix as well as others. There was a cupboard full of games downstairs, but not enough time to play with them, but excellent for rainy days. The bathroom was extremely clean as was the kitchen, where you can find just about everything you need to cook a meal, you name it they provide it. There were cushions for outside and fairy lights made it lovely and cosy to sit out in the evening. I've travelled and stayed in all types of accommodation but this cottage stands out as being superb! The owners have thought of everything and more. The photos and write up don't do the property justice.

Trefor quiet seaside village

  • A small traditional village at the foot of Yr Eifl , a range of three iconic mountains that dominate the skyline above Trefor
  • Village shop conveniently located across the road from the property
  • Small beach and traditional fishing harbour a five minute walk away
  • One of the best sections of coastal path in north Wales sits at edge of the village. The stacks of Ynys Bach, and the dramatic jagged pinnacles of Ynys Fawr, provide a spectacular scene with the sheer cliffs of Trwyn y Gorlech plummeting nearly 250 metres into the sea in the background
  • Photographers delight in capturing the breathtaking scenery combining both mountains and the sea
  • Trefor is an ideal spot from which to go kayaking, where the views of the pinnacles are 2nd to none!
  • The coastal path offers magnificent views up towards the old granite quarry that is still one of the main suppliers of curling stones for the popular Scottish sport. £

Pen Llyn (Llyn Peninsula)

  • Discover the lovely Llyn Peninsula - enjoy the cliffs and beaches along one of the most remote and unspoilt coastline in Wales with spectacular views from bracken covered headlands. £
  • A wildly beautiful peninsula that wraps you in a strong embrace. £Pen Llyn offers a mix of culture and heritage, traditional farmsteads, little ports, beaches, bays and sea-cliffs, quite unlike anything else you'll find in Wales - or elsewhere, in the world . The coast is a protected £- Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. Walk it by following the Wales Coast Path in the footsteps of the Pilgrims on their way to Y Enlli - Bardsey Island. £

    Criccieth and Pwllheli
  • A short drive across the peninsula from Pen Hendre are the popular holiday towns of Criccieth and Pwllheli.
  • Criccieth town is overlooked by its distinctive ruined Castle on the hillside which separates the 2 Blue Flag beaches. There are lots of locally owned shops - deli/coffee shop, butchers and fishmongers - good recommended restaurants are 'Poachers and 'Royal China' restaurants as well as Dylan's on the beach housed in a stunning art deco building designed by local architect and creator of Portmeirion, Clough William.
  • The centre of the popular seaside town of Pwllheli has many distinctive independent shops, boutiques and coffee shops - enjoy lunch or coffee at 'Taro Deg' (Striking Ten) a locally owned cafe £which is highly recommended. There is plenty to distract and entertain you.

Pilgrims churches

  • A few miles northward from Trefor is the village of Clynnog Fawr. The large and impressive church has many original fittings and a saint's shrine in a small chapel at the side where sick pilgrims would rest on rushes before continuing their journey.
  • On the mountain road towards Nefyn is the small hamlet of Pistyll where down off the main road is a lovely 12th century church just above the cliff It is kept as it was long ago with sweet smelling rushes on the floor and walls adorned with medical herbs - apparently a long standing local tradition relating to the needs of the pilgrims. The pilgrims' destination was Bardsey Island and the embarkation point was the lovely whitewashed village of Aberdaron. Here there is also a stunning church and boat trips can be taken to Bardsey itself.

Caernarfon Castle and Victoria Dock

  • Edward I's colossal building is magnificent and breathtaking. Wander round this huge fortress - children will love the circular stairways up to the towers with their arrow slit walls and creepy dungeons.
  • The Victoria Dock nearby has a theatre and restaurants and Caernarfon has a number of quirky shops including an excellent independent book shop. Palas Prints is a good place for browsing on wet days.

Days Away

Snowdonia National Park

  • This is about 40 minutes away by car. Llanberis, at the foot of Snowdon, is the perfect starting point for a walk to the summit and the Snowdon Mountain Railway starts here. Pick a good day to see the views if going by train. Booking is advisable. Exciting new ventures Zip World and Bounce Below are very popular - the zip wire run is not for the faint hearted! Bounce Below is in the heart of the old slate mine - huge trampoline nets are set in 2 vast chambers linked together by walkways and slides. Advance booking advisable.

Surf Snowdonia

  • Newly opened in the Conwy Valley this is going to be a hugely popular attraction - 300 meter lagoon which can produce two meter high waves which surfing enthusiasts will love.

Pen Hendre is a delightfully creative, comfortable and stylish cottage for Llyn Peninsula holidays at any time of the year.
