Hafod-y-Nant is a delightful, fully modernised traditional seventeenth-century stone cottage set on the edge of 4-miles-long Hell’s Mouth Bay (Porth Neigwl) Abersoch, an area of unspoilt natural beauty, with spectacular views of the bay and the western coastline of Llyn to Bardsey Island.
The cottage stands on its own, a mile from the main road, along an undulating farm track. The fine surfer’s beach of Hell’s Mouth is only 300 yards away, making it an ideal location for relaxing, bathing and fishing.
The area around Hafod-y-Nant with its spectacular headlands and clifftops is a walker’s paradise, with the Llyn Peninsula section of the Wales Coastal Path almost passing the cottage, and many other countryside walks criss-crossing the nearby fields and the heathlands of Cilan.
Nature-lovers will find much to delight, with countless seabirds around the rugged cliffs; and the red-legged chough, Llyn’s iconic symbol, flies in small groups around the coast hereabouts. Wildflowers are abundant, with bluebells, primroses, thrift and spring squill carpeting the hillsides early in the year, and later the summer heathers and hawkbits adding carpets of colour to the higher clifftops. Porpoise and dolphin are regularly seen from the clifftops of Hell’s Mouth.
Although off the beaten track, the cottage is only a short drive from all the amenities of Abersoch, with its shops, beaches, harbour, restaurants, bars and leisure facilities; and the picturesque villages of Rhiw, Aberdaron, Llanbedrog, Criccieth and Nefyn are a short drive away. The popular market town of Pwllheli with its twice-weekly open-air market is just 15 minutes’ drive. Porthmadog with its terminus of the Welsh Highland Railway and the Ffestiniog Railway is an easy drive too.
The cottage has three bedrooms – one with a double-bed and the other two each having single beds. Bed linen is provided. There is a bathroom upstairs and a cloakroom with toilet downstairs.
The cosy beamed living-room has an open fireplace with an electric fire, and there is electric central heating throughout. A colour TV and DVD player are provided.
The kitchen/dining room is well fitted with electric cooker, fridge-freezer, automatic washing machine, microwave, toaster, iron, dishwasher and all essential cooking utensils. A cot and high-chair are also available. Electricity is on a meter reading.
Hafod-y-Nant stands in its own lawned gardens, with good parking facilities and plenty of play-space for young children. It is part of a typical Welsh-working sheep-farm, with something of interest always going on, and whose owners are especially concerned with ensuring that holidaymakers get the most out of, and enjoy, their stay at Nant.
The cottage is let from Saturday to Saturday, and short breaks are also available out of season (October to March). Visitors are asked to arrive after 3pm and leave by 10am on day of departure.
