This is a warm (although larger than you would expect!) stone quarryman's cottage in the village of Trefor on the Llyn Peninsula. Set in a row of terraced cottages half a mile from the beach, the cottage has the added benefit of a babbling stream with a terraced area at the bottom of the garden- lovely to listen to while enjoying a quiet drink. The long garden also has a central 'sun trap' terrace. Although traditional, the cottage also has a 'modern feel' and it is the perfect location for couples or families wanting to enjoy local walks and wildlife or for those who just want to get away from it all.

The cottage benefits from central heating (although not always necessary with the log burner!) as well as mod cons including a dishwasher, washing/machine dryer, fridge freezer, microwave, TV with DVD as well as...

About the neighbourhood
The village of TREFOR is to be found on the Llyn Peninsula close to Caernarfon and Pwllhelli. Trefor developed thanks to the local granite quarry. Its small harbour became extremely busy in the days when local granite from the Eifl Quarry was shipped to all over Europe. The beach, a mix of sand and pebbles, is mostly sheltered. Nowadays, the inner harbour is mostly occupied by pleasure boats. It is a popular dive site for those interested in SCUBA diving. Nestling at the foot of Yr Eifl (worth the walk to the summit for a spectacular view of Nant Gwrtheyrn) the village of Trefor is popular with families, diving, watersports and fishing enthusiasts and it provides you with an ideal base for exploring the Peninsula.
Getting around
The village itself has a small grocery store and a sub post-office. Buses run from Trefor into Pwllheli and Caernarfon. The beach is just 5 minutes walk from the house. Close by, at CLYNNOG FAWR, there is the ancient Church of St Beuno, a major Llyn landmark on the Pilgrims Route to Bardsey Island. Also nearby at MORFA NEFYN a popular seaside resort, there is a unique 26 hole golf course with a view of the sea from every tee.
