About Swallow Cottage

Delightful rustic Grade II listed cottage for holidays on the Llyn Peninsula, close to a Blue Flag Beach

  • Absolutely perfect for two - this 200 hundred year old rustic Grade II listed cottage with its cosy interior is set in a pretty little hamlet and simply oozes rustic charm!
  • Small mullioned windows look out across rolling fields dotted with large mature trees, a wood burning stove sits in an inglenook and the pretty bedroom has a Victorian fireplace - lots of interesting ornaments and pictures everywhere reflecting the owners' taste and personality.
  • The cottage is surrounded by a beautiful old fashioned country garden full of colour and the lovely scent of lavender. The whitewashed walls in the delightful rear patio area are covered with climbing hydrangeas and clematis and the area has sun loungers as well as a dining table and chairs for al fresco meals in the sun.
  • The pretty cottages in this tiny hamlet were built to house the workers from the nearby Glynllifon Estate.
  • Soak up the peaceful atmosphere and walk along the country lanes with hedgerows thick with the summer growth of cow parsley, scarlet foxgloves and ragged robin - Dinas Dinlle Blue Flag Beach is a pleasant 1.2 mile walk.

I'm always apprehensive when booking into the unknown. . However this little charmer was just perfect. I couldn't have wished for moreThe only minor snag was on the cottage information card,. The WiFi code has not been written down correctly, but luckily on rear of router the code remains.I'd love to buy this cottage if ever it came up.. A perfect place

Excellent cottage - quiet location yet very handy for all that North Wales has to offer, probably enhanced by the weather!

The cottage is extremely comfortable and well equipped throughout.There are so many interesting places to visit in the area. We've had a fabulous stay- too short though and we will definitely be back for longer.

16th May 2022

We found some fabulous beaches on the Lleyn Peninsula (we recommend the pub on the beach at Morfa Nefyn). Also there are many fab walks out of Beddgelert. Thanks for letting us use your cottage, we think the work you have done to the place is great.

Thank you Norah and Roman for a cosy, comfortable, Christmas at your beautiful cottage.

16th May 2022

Your cottage is lovely, cosy and comfortable. Good location for exploring the local area and central for visiting other areas of Wales. Very relaxing time was had, Ellie (dog) was completely chilled- wish we had made it a week now.

Coastal Path and Beaches

  • Apart from the beach at Dinas Dinlle there are 2 secluded beaches that are really only accessible from the Coastal Path. Leave the car at Pontllyfni and join the path by the beach - a lovely sandy cove and usually quiet, carrying on along the path will lead you to Aberdesach another quiet sandy bay.
  • Nefyn and Morfa Nefyn, around 10 miles away, are 2 beautiful beaches. These stunning bays are next to each other, both with easy access car parks.
  • Visit the old smugglers cove of Porthdinllaen and enjoy a drink at the famous Ty Coch pub - voted the 3rd most popular beach bar in the world!

Glynllifon Country Park

  • Within easy walking distance of Swallow's Cottage you can explore the woodland gardens, rolling parkland and delightful riverside walks of this Grade 1 listed Manor House. There are graceful exteriors to admire and then round off your visit with tea and cake in the cafe.

Caernarfon Airfield - Local Scenic Flights

  • This is a small airfield at the end of Dinas Dinlle beach which offers flights over this stunning area - up to Snowdonia, along the beautiful Menai Strait and Anglesey coastline and down over the Llyn Peninsula.

Caernarfon Castle and Victoria Dock

  • Caernarfon Castle is a huge castle - the Guide Book claims that this 'is one of the most striking buildings the middle ages has left us' and it is hard to argue with that breathtakingly impressive and interesting description.
  • From here wander down to the Victoria Dock and eat on the quayside where there are a number of small restaurants, shops and a theatre with plays, films and art exhibitions to enjoy.

Palas Prints, Caernarfon

  • Do visit this, one of Britain's best independent bookshops - browsing is a delight and will surely brighten up any day whether sunny or rainy and whether you are a bookworm or not.


  • The 'Pearl of Wales on the shores of Snowdonia' with two beaches, a variety of excellent places to eat, an antiques emporium, small independent shops and an atmospheric castle make Criccieth well worth visiting.

Dylan's Criccieth

  • Housed in an iconic waterside building designed by Sir Clough Williams Ellis of Portmeirion fame, Dylan's is an award-winning contemporary restaurant serving excellent food in a delightful relaxed and informal ambience with fabulous coastal views.

Steam Railway

  • The Welsh Highland Railway terminus is in Caernarfon which travels through Snowdonia down to lovely Beddgelert via the Aberglaslyn Pass to Porthmadog.


  • A pretty village at the base of Snowdonia famous for its faithful hound of the same name. Visit Beddgelert's grave and read his sad story.

National Trust Beddgelert

  • Historic Ty Isaf is now a characterful village shop selling local crafts and produce. The Craflwyn Estate in the wooded foothills of Snowdonia close to Beddgelert has myriad walking and cycling trails and a tourist information centre.

Days away - Snowdonia & Anglesey

  • The cottage is in a central location and is a great base from which to explore Snowdonia and Anglesey - both within a 30 minutes or so drive.
  • Take a train ride to the summit of Snowdonia, or for the more energetic walk to the top - a really unforgettable experience whichever one chooses! Try one or two of Snowdonia's thrilling adventure activities such as Zip World, Bounce Below, Fforest Coaster and Surf Snowdonia
  • Lots to see and do when visiting Anglesey - don't miss visiting Plas Newydd House and Garden (NT) at the edge of Menai Strait and enjoy a meal at Award Winning Marram Grass Restaurant at Newborough - a little tin shed of place but it is featured in the 2016 Good Food Guide!

Grade II listed charming rustic cottage for year round holidays on the beautiful Llyn Peninsula.
