    “Comfortable, modern and clean and generally a lovely place to stay.”

    The outside could do with some care and modernisation to be in keeping with the neighbouring houses and area as it was a bit of a heart-sink as we drove up. ...

    The outside could do with some care and modernisation to be in keeping with the neighbouring houses and area as it was a bit of a heart-sink as we drove up. Of note, the information on line does not make it clear that the adjoining bedroom (twin) is literally that. Adjoined to another bedroom with no access to bathroom or landing. This might be less important if you have put your young children in there but absolutely inappropriate if you are booking this house for adult couples. We had planned to use the twin so our adult children and partners could have the doubles. It was inappropriate for us to have to go through their bedroom for the toilet and so I ended up downstairs in the single room with my husband on the floor on a mattress in there with me. There is also a problem with the window frame in the single room and the wind whistles all night. As my husband is elderly and I have physical health conditions it impacted on the enjoyment of our holiday; knowing we had to be in the single room in cramped conditions with the noise of the wind all night. We think this house is great for a family with small children but a no-no for adult couples.

There is adequate off-street parking for three cars and a boat at the house, so you can take advantage of the great sailing conditions in Abersoch.

A welcoming open-plan living area decorated in soothing blues and greens welcomes you at entry; remove your shoes and gather around the leather sofa to watch TV while listening to the crackle of a wood burning fireplace behind you in this cosy home away from home.

Indulge in your favourite DVD or Sky show in the spacious living room before moving into the unique kitchen, which features blue tiled walls and white fixtures, as well as an impressive array of integrated appliances.

When dinner is served, you can enjoy it at the breakfast bar or the colourful dining table, where you can open a bottle of bubbly to mark this fabulous coastal getaway.

There is also a first-floor snug with beanbags, a TV, and a collection of books and games for guests to enjoy.

On warmer days why not enjoy a picnic in the back garden while the kids and pets play on the enormous lawn?

The Vaynol Pub and Fresh Bar & Grill, as well as the well-stocked convenience stores, are both within easy walking distance of the centre of Abersoch.

The village also has two wonderful beaches, one of which is the Abersoch Harbour Beach, where you can relax while watching the boats sail out to sea or set sail yourself if you've brought a boat!

The Llanbedrog Headland Circular Walk is a great way to see the area's clifftop, forest, and heathland landscape; afterward, treat yourself with a visit to Plas Glyn y Weddw Gallery, which features modern art and a cafe, or a rest on the village's popular beach.

About the location

The attractive harbour village of Abersoch is situated on the Llyn Peninsula in a region of Wales renowned for its outstanding scenery and varied walking. The village, situated between two glorious bays, is one of the most popular sailing venues in North Wales and important sailing regattas are held there throughout the summer months. Numerous shops cater for the tourist as well as pubs, restaurants and cafes. There are also opportunities for golfers as there is a course just outside the village and horse riding facilities are also available nearby. Watersports enthusiasts are also well catered for, particularly windsurfing, water skiing and dinghy sailing, not to mention renowned surfing at Port Neigwl (Hell’s Mouth). The long, sandy Abersoch Main Beach is probably the most popular beach in the area. There is a wonderful selection of beaches in the surrounding area of the Llyn Peninsula, including the beautiful and often quiet Porth Ceriad, with it's high cliffs, and sandy Porth Oer ("Whistling Sands"). Most of the coastline is owned by the National Trust and there are many remote bays, sandy beaches and cliffs, as well as wildlife havens like Bardsey Island to explore.
