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. Sue returned time after time until she finally found and bought Ty'n Rhyd in 2004.

Why Sue Quigley chose Pwllheli
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 relaxing in 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 for al fresco dining, with stunning views over the adjacent farmland towards the sea or hills.

A lovely place to stay with surrounding fields and a lovely garden to enjoy the sun! The cottage was amazing! Great size bedrooms and spoilt for choice to what room to sit in it! Settled in really well would have loved to stay longer! The area was a great choice for walking. It took us just under an hour to walk into Aberdaron which we enjoyed with just cows and sheep to say hello to on the way! And it was worth the walk with good food to eat and a quiet beach!It was lovely to get away and enjoy the peace and quiet
A home from home
Stayed in this cottage as a family of 5 including one baby . Remote location just a few minutes from Aberdaron but just what we needed for the weekend . Gorgeous gardens and the children enjoyed exploring it . Well equipped kitchen. Was helpful also to have two living room spaces so we could watch different programmes on TV! Would mdefinitely stay again if we are in that area of Wales again
Many thanks Lisa, and I am so pleased that you and the family enjoyed your short break at Ty'n Rhyd, and especially that the children enjoyed playing in the large garden. The location of the cottage just two miles out of Aberdaron is indeed ideal for offering you the best of both worlds, total privacy and space at the cottage, and all the facilities of Aberdaron just a few minutes drive away.
I do hope that you will return again in the future.
An Oasis for relaxation!
As a family of three we stayed at the cottage for a short break and enjoyed every minute. We have stayed in many holiday rentals and this features as one of the best. The location is wonderful and the cottage itself is well equipped, clean, clearly well maintained and looked after. We will certainly stay again
Thank you Mark for your kind words, and I am delighted that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Ty'n Rhyd. I look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Best wishes. Sue
very well presented & maintained cottage. warm and cosy with beautiful bright sunroom.
We felt very welcome on arrival with refreshments left out for us. We settled in quickly with v comfortable furnishings & everything we could need in the kitchen.
The area was ideal being so close to coast - with walks that had amazing views.
A very successful break for us. Many thanks.
Thank you Katherine for your kind words, and I am so pleased that you found Ty'n Rhyd comfortable and cosy, especially visiting in February. The views from the sun room are wonderful, and I am sure that you will have enjoyed the walks from the door to join the Llyn Coastal Path to visit our local cove at Porth Ysgo, or to walk up to see the spectacular panoramic views of the peninsula and coast from the headland at Rhiw.
I very much hope to be able to welcome you and your family back again soon.
Well equipped and comfortable cottage
The cottage provided us with all necessary things ( exept iron and ironing board ), perfect WiFi, well equipped kitchen. The cottage is comfortable and inviting. Adequate feedback from the owner. Apart from Storm Callum we enjoyed a pleasant stay.
Thank you for your kind words Willem, though you certainly didn't enjoy the best weather for your visit to Wales thanks to Storm Callum. I hope though that you were able to see some of the beautiful beaches and scenery, on the days when the sun was shining, and were able to take some good memories of this wonderfully unspoiled area back to the Netherlands with you.
PS Sorry that you didn't find the iron and ironing board (in the understairs utility cupboard).
Lovely spacious cottage in a beautiful setting, very peaceful and great beaches
The cottage was very clean and spacious. The conservatory gave us plenty of options to sit and enjoy the views whilst relaxing. We walked to the beach which was only 10mins and was well worth it. We have had such a lovely stay. We managed to dodge most of the weather and it didn't stop us doing anything. This was our first visit to Wales and we picked well. The cottage and area. We felt that Sue was available if we had any issues (but we didn’t). Thanks again.
Thanks for your kind words about Ty'n Rhyd, Michael. I am delighted that you and your party enjoyed the cottage, and were able to relax and enjoy the lovely views from the cottage. Great too that you were able to discover some of the wonderful beaches of the Lleyn Peninsula during your visit, and in particular our beautiful local cove at Porth Ysgo, just a short walk across the adjacent fields from the cottage.
Hopefully you will return again one day for a second visit to this totally unspoiled and wonderfully wild corner of Wales.
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.
