The property

Pen y Groes is a homely and inviting holiday cottage with a wood burning stove, attractively furnished with a mix of antique and modern pieces accented with stylish fabrics - perfect for returning to after a fun-filled day.

This charming character cottage in the heart of Llithfaen village, with its own vibrant community-run pub and village store, is the perfect base for exploring the many delights of the Llyn Peninsula and for those seeking a traditional Welsh getaway. Relax and unwind the minute you step through the front door into the open plan lounge/ kitchen area with it’s under floor heating. Return after an action packed day to curl up on the sofa to watch some TV in front of the wood burner, a welcome addition on a chilly evening, or when it’s warmer, the seating at the front of the property provides a perfect spot to watch the sunset with a glass of wine. Next to the sitting room is the well-equipped kitchen where you will find all the essentials required to whip up a delicious home cooked meal before settling down with your loved ones to discuss the day’s events and plan the next day’s walk or beach day. Alternatively take a short walk to the community run pub with a playground right next door - ideal for the children. At the end of the day, climb the carpeted stairs to the first floor where you will find two sweet bedrooms, a double and a twin.

Serving these two rooms is the bright shower room with WC and basin. Llithfaen is one of the highest villages on the Llyn Peninsula and is close to the stunning and magical Nant Gwrtheyrn, the National Welsh Language and Heritage Centre, which is located at the foot of Yr Eifl. Why not take a walk and visit this secluded village built in Victorian times and enjoy a coffee in Cafe Meinir, soaking up the amazing views and history of this special place.

You can also access the stunning coastal footpath or walk up to Tre'r Ceiri, an ancient hillfort going back to the Early Bronze Age.

Visit some of the breath-taking beaches and coves dotted around the Llyn Peninsula.

Just a short drive away is Porthdinllaen beach, home to the famous Ty Coch Inn, voted one of the top ten beach bars in the world.

This part of Wales is incredible with unique culture and mythical heritage with some of the best visitor attractions, such as, the Italianate village of Portmeirion, an adrenaline-filled ride on the Velocity Zip Line or an afternoon of family fun at Greenwood Family Park.

About the location


Nefyn 4 miles; Abersoch 12 miles.

The small village of Llithfaen is one of the highest villages on the Llyn Peninsula, enjoying some of the best views around due to its location on the slopes of the Yr Eifl mountain range. The village boasts its own community-run village shop and local pub, which was established in 1988 and offers a friendly welcome. Llithfaen is very proud of its Welsh heritage with the Welsh Language and Heritage Centre and restaurant located just up the road at Nant Gwrtheyrn, which also has a pebble beach. The pretty coastal town of Nefyn lies 4 miles away, sitting atop sweeping cliffs, and is home to a fine, two-mile stretch of sandy beach, popular with families, along with a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. The village is also within reach of the amenities of the popular towns of Pwllheli, Abersoch and Caernarfon. In nearby Porth Dinllaen is the Ty Coch pub, voted 3rd best 'beach bar' in the world in an online feature in June 2013. The coastline around this region is dotted with castles and coves, while fishing, sailing and water sports are all available. The Snowdonia National Park is 25 miles away, with its dramatic scenery and abundance of superb walks.
