A beautifully fitted Bathroom with 'Mira' shower over the bath, hand basin, toilet, and heated towel rail completes the indoor accommodation.

Outside there is a large, fully-enclosed garden with a small 'babbling brook' stream, ample recreation space, and a choice of outside dining areas and BBQ. Private, secure parking for 2/3 cars.

All windows and doors are fully double-glazed. Modern electric heaters throughout ensure that the cottage is cosy all year round, and the 2 multi-fuel stoves burn coal and/or logs, and provide a warming glow in the evenings . Bed linen and electricity are provided in the tariff.

This property has a 4 Star grading by the Visit Wales Tourist Board. Many guests return year after year to this little 'piece of heaven', where peace and tranquillity are assured in a timeless and natural setting, with wide-open skies, the cry of gulls and the distant glint of the sea.

About Sue Quigley

Sue Quigley grew up spending family holidays on the Lleyn Peninsula, and always dreamed about owning a cottage in this spectacular area. When she met her husband they discovered that they shared a love of this special place, and returned time after time until they finally found and bought Ty'n Rhyd in 2004.

Sue Quigley purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Sue Quigley chose Wales

Ty'n Rhyd offers privacy and seclusion, with wonderful open skies and beautiful views in every direction. Fantastic walks abound from the front door, with a particular favourite of Sue's being across the adjoining fields to the stunning little cove at Porth Ysgo. Also the Ty Coch pub, on the beach at Porthdinllaen, is amongst Sue's favourite places on earth, whatever the season or weather.

The cottage itself was modernised and extended by us in 2005, converting what was little more than a derelict shell into the stunning kitchen and main sitting room of today, and linked to the original cottage by a bright and airy sun-room.

The stylish, coastal-themed interior reflects the cottage's seaside setting, with many artefacts, pictures and decorative touches, which many guests comment upon as being tasteful and memorable.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage is perfect for couples or small family groups, with 3 separate living spaces to give everyone a choice of catching a few moments of peace and quiet with a good book or the daily paper. The large garden is fully enclosed and offers both space and privacy for recreation or al fresco dining, with stunning views over the adjacent farmland towards the sea or hills.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have just returned from a wonderful break, staying at Ty’n Rhyd. We managed to get out every day and on some days basked in the sunshine on the glorious beaches you recommended.

We both agree that the holiday wouldn’t have been as successful if we had been staying anywhere else. The cottage is beautiful – even when it was raining, being able to sit in the light and airy conservatory and look across the fields was a delight. The beds were comfortable, wifi very reliable and having a sofa each was the height of luxury.Thank you for providing the ingredients for such a good holiday.

This was our fourth visit toTyn Rhyd. The cottage was as lovely as ever, so welcoming. It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday, very comfortable and spacious. We had a week of lovely weather, spending a whole day on Pwllheli beach and getting sunburnt!

We always look forward to our return visits and have already. booked for 2017!

Characterful, cosy and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

Loved our easter stay at this gorgeous cottage, which is well equipped, clean and spacious. It has so many inviting places to relax, including the second sitting room and sunny conservatory., it was a dilemma to choose! The wifi was appreciated by our two teenage boys. Ideal location for exploring the Aberdaron and Abersoch area and indeed the wider area if time permits. We walked down to the nearby beach at some point each day, which was usually deserted. A walk to the little church viewed from the back of the cottage is recommended. Enjoyed coastal walk from Aberdaron to the end of the peninsula, with fabulous views all round. Highly recommend this cottage for a holiday on the Llyn Peninsula.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind comments Ralph, and I am so glad that the weather did not spoil your visit to the cottage, where I am sure you and your party enjoyed cozying up by the log burner and watching the storm rage outside. I do hope that you will return again in better weather so that you can properly explore this beautiful part of North Wales. Thanks again for choosing to stay at Ty'n Rhyd. Best wishes, Sue.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just beautiful ! The garden , the location and the accommodation were great for a family holiday for guests from 2yrs old to 68 years young The only flaw was that we couldn't stay longer ! Win Dowling

Ty'n Rhyd is a beautiful detached, traditional Welsh cottage with stunning views, situated near seaside Aberdaron, on the south coast of the unspoiled Lleyn Peninsula, a protected Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Lleyn also has a distinct identity as a bastion of Celtic history and heritage, and is stronghold of pride in Welsh culture and tradition.

Ty’n Rhyd is within easy reach by foot of a picturesque small cove, Porth Ysgo, and direct access onto the stunning Wales Coastal Path. This area is an absolute haven for walking enthusiasts, with the coastal path accessible from the front door. Much of the coastline is maintained by the National Trust, which means that there are many well-maintained footpaths, car parks and other facilities.

Historic Aberdaron, just 2 miles away on the very tip of the Peninsula, is also known as the Land’s End of Wales. This scenic village was once the last stop for pilgrims making the journey across to Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island). It is widely renowned for its local crab and lobster, which our nearest neighbour sells from her front door! The village has essential shops and also a number of cafes and take-aways, a bakery, plus 2 excellent pubs serving local beers, meals and snacks. Aberdaron also boasts a National Trust Visitor Centre, and a long, sandy beach, which is ideal for families with all the amenities of the village readily to hand including free WiFi.

Bardsey Island - rumoured to be the burial place of 20,000 Saints – is just off the tip of Aberdaron. The island is well worth a boat trip for the day to visit this very special place, and to spot the basking seals, sea lions, and sea bird colonies of puffins and choughs, amongst numerous other species of wildlife that inhabit the island and its rocky shoreline.

Some of the most unspoiled beaches in the British Isles can be found within 10 minutes’ drive of the cottage, ranging from the much-photographed cove at Porth Iago to the famous ‘Whistling Sands’ of Porth Oer. The 4-mile-long beach at Porth Neigwl, (Hell’s Mouth) is extremely popular with surfers and walkers alike. Beach and sea fishing opportunities abound, with bass and mackerel amongst other species found off many of the beaches and rocky points. The popular sailing centre of Abersoch, also a place to spot the rich and famous (or just to see and be seen), is just 20 minutes drive away. Also a short drive, folllowed by a walk along the beach (or over Nefyn golf course), will bring you to the famous Ty Coch (Red House) Inn at Porthdinllaen (voted 3rd Best Beach Bar in the world in 2013). Here the fascinating and historic pub is right on the beach of this stunning bay, and you can while away the day just gazing out to sea, with a glass or two of something cool in your hand and perhaps a fresh crab salad to sustain you .

Whether you are looking for a child-friendly beach holiday, a walking holiday to explore the stunning coastline and unique landscape, a spot of bird-watching, or to participate in sporting activities such as golf, sea fishing, or watersports for the more adventurous, the Lleyn is the ideal choice for your holiday, and Ty'n Rhyd is the perfect base for all of the family, young and old.

You will often hear Welsh spoken in the shops, as this area has probably the highest number of native language speakers, and also boasts a renowned Welsh language centre for learners. But don't worry, everyone speaks English here and you will be given a warm welcome wherever you go, as tourists have been visiting this area for hundreds of years just to enjoy the beauty and tranquility, far away from the crowded resorts and hustle and bustle.

For those wishing to explore further afield, there are ancient castles to see at Criccieth and Caernarfon, and at Beaumaris on the beautiful island of Anglesey, all within a 1-hour drive of Ty'n Rhyd. The Italianate village of Portmeirion, famous as the location for the cult 1960s TV series The Prisoner, is a fascinating day out for all the family. Away from the coast are the mountains, lakes and villages of Snowdonia, which offer endless opportunities to explore this spectacular area on foot or by car, or catch one of the historic steam trains, which chug up mountain tracks and will transport you to a bygone era.

However you choose to spend your time, Ty'n Rhyd will be a welcoming 'home from home' on your return each day, and you will be able to relax and drink in your surroundings from the bright sun room, perhaps whilst sipping a cool glass of something and watching the sun go down over the distant hills.
