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.

We always take a break at new year and although the weather was good the wood burner was welcome at the end of a long day out. Having one ensuite and a bathroom for the second bedroom was also a bonus with lovely hot water. Merilyn the owner was on the end of her mobile for questions and it was lovely of her to thank us for leaving the cottage clean and tidy we always do this but never had a thnkyou before, really appreciated. Would recommend this cottage and area.
