Because the lane is so narrow PARKING is on the lower road there is always space even in high summer, the cottage is a short stroll up the lane it is possible to drive up to unload ONLY please assess width before driving up it gets wider as you go up and you can drive out at the top end we recommend driving up from the narrow end on Lon Isaf. We have a VW passatt and have no problem but wider cars may not be able to access. There is NO parking directly outside cottage unloading only.

The cottage is owned by Robert Temple and Janice Humphries, we live in Altrincham Cheshire with our two daughters.. Our long search for a cottage eventually brought us to Morfa Nefyn where we fell in love with the area and the village. The cottage was in a very bad state and we took nearly two years to slowly renovate it.

JANICE HUMPHRIES and ROBERT TEMPLE purchased this cottage in 2013

Why JANICE HUMPHRIES and ROBERT TEMPLE chose Lleyn Peninsula

We chose this area as we know Caernarfon area well having holidayed many times around there. Also we have friends who have been going to Nefyn for 20 years. It has beautiful beaches and scenery, secluded but in easy reach of amenities. Its a real hidden gem which is increasing in popularity year on year.

What makes this cottage unique

Minimal passing traffic mainly walkers or cyclists as lane very narrow but this adds to the away from it all feeling. But walk up whe road you can buy fresh pork, cider and apple juice from a farm shop and there is even a fish and chip shop within a few minutes. Easy stroll to cafes and pubs makes it the ideal holiday destination for families, walkers and golfers alike also perfect for a romantic getaway. The Log burner makes even winter breaks cozy.

Fabulous cottage and Morfa Nefyn is a hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely 5 night stay in Karina cottage. Beautifully appointed, clean and everything to hand. Took my 78 year old mum, hubby and 2 children 9 and 6 and all loved it. Local shops near, well stocked and not expensive. Beach 10 minute walk. Lovely cafes at the petrol station and just before climb towards golf club, chippy 2 mins walk - very nice. Lots to do. Would definitely recommend and hope to return. Thanks to Janice and Rob.

Smashing time close to some of the best beaches

  • 4 of 5

The property is spotlessly clean and well maintained. Very comfortable for the 5 in our group (4 adults one child). Stylish chic decor. The log burner looked ace but we didn't use it because we went away during a scorching weekend. Outside the garden and patio area is not overlooked and great for BBQ and breakfasts in the sun. The narrow lane down to the cottage is tight but accessible for loading/unloading straight to door. Plenty of parking at the bottom of the lane and only a short 2 min walk away.

Janice ensured that we knew exactly how to get there and gain access to the property and the communication was excellent.

Morfa Nefyn and Nefyn are quiet places but the beaches are sandy and fantastic for swimming. Crabbing from Nefyn harbour is a must as well as a walk across nearby Morfa Nefyn beach to Ty Coch Inn. Many great beaches nearby but in my opinion the the best beach (Whistling Sands) is a 30 min drive away. The castle at Caernarfon is fascinating and the town a delight to walk around.

Will definitely be coming back to Karina cottage in the future.
