Things to Do in Aberdaron, North Wales

Beach

Aberdaron has a glorious sandy beach which is never crowded. Walk along the sands, swim and sunbathe, surrounded by unspoilt natural beauty.

Walking and Cycling

This area of North Wales is ideal for walking. It also offers a challenge to mountain bikers with its undulating terrain. There are many way-marked paths along the clifftops as well as many trails for exploring in the Snowdonia National Park.

Visit the Church

The local church of St Hywyn with its extensive graveyard sits overlooking the sheltered bay. There has been a church on the site since the 5th century, but the current building dates back to the 12th century. It is best known for its outspoken vicar, the famous Welsh poet R.S.Thomas, who served the parish from 1967 to 1978.

Places to Visit Near Aberdaron, North Wales

Snowdonia

Snowdonia National Park offers dramtic landscapes from towering craggy peaks to glacial lakes and cascading waterfalls. It is ideal for walking, mountain biking and touring by car. Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales and tests even the most experienced climbers. The mountain railway is the best way to ascend!

Bardsey Island

This well-known land feature is about 4 miles from your Aberdaron holiday rental. The island has always been an important religious site and the first monastery was built by St Cadfan in 516. The monastery was destroyed by Henry VIII in 1537 but the island continues to be a place of pilgrimage, undisturbed wildlife and rugged natural scenery. The square-sided lighthouse stands on the southerly tip.

Plas-yn-Rhiw

This National Trust property is just 4 miles from your Aberdaron holiday rental. The Georgian fronted building has walls 8 feet thick in places which were originally part of an earlier Tudor building. The homely interior is just as it would have been in the 1930s when lived in by the 3 sisters, Eileen, Laura and Honora Keating.

It's absolutely huge, and ever aspect of it has been well thought out. The kitchen/diner was beautiful, well stocked and has the most incredible view. Carol left a welcome hamper with local produce, which was a bonus. Bedrooms were all sizeable and comfortable. The games room was great for our group to enjoy some space out of the house, and location was quiet but not too far from Abersoch, Pwffheli or Aberdaron. Couldn't fault the house, would highly recommend for families or groups of friends.

Wonderful kitchen with a big table so that we could all sit together and lots of gadgets which you dont usually find in holiday homes which we appreciated. Pool and games room were well used by children and adults alike. Had lots of walks around the ponds. It will be somewhere where we will book again soon.
