About Clare McGettigan

My husband, myself and 3 daughters aged 12, 10 and 6 live in Manchester and bought this property as we have always loved the natural beauty and quiet charm of the Llyn Peninsula. For us it is the perfect place for a truly relaxing family holiday. We get to Nefyn regularly and hope you like the 'home from home' we have created.

Clare McGettigan purchased this house in 2006

Why Clare McGettigan chose Nefyn

Having holidayed in this area since we were children ourselves we jumped at the opportunity to buy this property which although almost derelict retained superb original features. Unfortunately not all could be salvaged in the year long renovations.... We now have a property with period charm and modern comforts. Let us know what you think.

What makes this house unique

The off road parking and enclosed grassy garden make it a safe haven for families. It is in fantasic location within the village itself and a short stroll along the foot path to reach the sheltered sandy beach.... plus NEW for 2016 beautiful well equipped Beach Hut available to rent in summer months.

Beautiful house with Wi-Fi in seaside village of Nefyn, Llyn Peninsula
average rating of 4.75 based on 36 reviews

Comfortable, well provisioned, conveniently situated, with a great garden for the children.

  • 5 of 5

We had amazing weather so spent a lot of time visiting beaches on the north and south side of the peninsula, which are all easily accessible. Although we had 3 cars, parking wasn't an issue. The children, twins of 7 and a boy of 4 loved the garden with its tree house, slide and swing. Loads of toys and games in the house but we didn't spend much time indoors. Also really useful having the 3 bathrooms. There was plenty of room in the kitchen for all of us. Altogether one of the best places we have stayed.

Well equiped and spacious property

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property whilst golfing in the area and it is very well located for a number of local courses. The house itself had plenty of space for the 6 of us and we found it to be well equipped for all our needs especially the kitchen. The utility/drying room was also very useful when we got back from playing golf on the very soggy Nefyn links. The local village in the immediate vicinity has a Spa, pub/hotel and takeaways and we used all these at various points. All the communication from the owner Clare was excellent and as we play golf in the area most years I am sure we will look to rent the property again.

A lovely relaxed family home with many welcoming features.

  • 4 of 5

We loved everything about the house: lots of space,cleaned to a very high standard, a very well equipped kitchen,comfortable sitting room and bedrooms.,close to Spar supermarket which stocked everything we needed. Our girls loved the garden and really appreciated the piano. The Beach Hut was a real bonus and enabled us to make full use of Nefyn beach in spite of mixed weather. Lots of walks on the coastal path and also at Mynnd Mawr near Aberdaron . Had Sunday lunch at the Nanhoran Arms 220 yards from the house. We visited Morfa Nefyn beach and played Golf on the stunning cliff top course there. Had a lovely family meal at the Cliffs Inn.-Staff very welcoming to children. Less than half an hour away is

the Plas Glyn Weddw Art Gallery in Llanbedrog -not only a fantastic Art Exhibition but equally fantastic cakes in the Cafe!

As Usual when visiting the Lleyn Peninsula we ran out of time-we will definitely be back. Many Thanks
