Overview

About the property

Paddock cottage, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeping up to 5

This stunning cottage is situated in a unique location, offering private access to the 80 acres of the estate of Plas Glyn-y-Weddw (Woodland & Grassed areas). The estate nestles in an idyllic corner of Llanbedrog extending down to the beach. Paddock cottage itself, is a beautiful 300 metre stroll down to the beach (past a popular beach bistro). The cottage is something special to view making it an ideal retreat for any time of the year. The origins of the name lie in the fact that the property was the original stables on the estate, and has been converted into cosy accommodation whilst retaining many original features. The cottage & its location will provide lasting memories of a special holiday. The National Trust own the beach, which is never too crowded even in the summer months.

Beach Life: The Beach at Llanbedrog has a cafe / bistro on, and is often seen in photographs and portraits of the Llyn. The sea gently slopes into the sea, and provides a safe environment for a family. At the entrance to the beech is a small stream running down to the sea that provides hours of entertainment.

Activity: The Llyn is packed with activities to suit all tastes from ramblers & families and is a great spot to take a break. The location of this property means that you will rarely need the car for the whole break, with everything truly on your doorstep.

On a recent edition of BBC's countryfile (Aug 2006), the cottage & idyllic setting formed the backdrop to John Craven's intro to the Llyn episode. Ideal location 300 metres to the sea, 100 metres to café, 300 metres to the bistro, 800 metres to pub & shop, everything is close to hand. Tucked away on the Llyn Peninsula, Llanbedrog offers the ideal base for a family or activity based break. Llanbedrog offers an ideal base in a picturesque setting and is close to the popular village of Abersoch with its trendy shops & watersports. The cottage itself is situated within the grounds of the Plas Glyn-y-Weddw estate, with its art gallery and café. It is especially renowned for its sheltered sandy beach (the most sheltered in North Wales) nestling under a steep rocky headland covered with picturesque heather and fringed by pine trees. The breathtaking beauty of the approach road has probably been painted and photographed more often than any area in this peninsula of unforgettable scenery

Other Activities: Mountain boarding, Hovercrafts, go-karts, quad-biking, steam railways

A Gem in Llanbedrog

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Paddock Cottage. The location is brilliant, a quiet enclave just a couple of minutes walk to a great beach. There is a beach bar/restaurant on the way to the beach that has stunning views. The local pub and shop are 5 minutes in the other direction. Abersoch is a 10 minute drive. We spent time walking on the beach and exploring the Llyn Peninsula. Aberdaeron was a particular favourite and we also enjoyed Morfa Nefyn. Lots of good places to eat and drink, but we especially liked the Kin cafe in Abersoch and the bakery in Aberdaeron. The cafe over at Morfa Nefyn is also very good. We also found the local brewery at Nefyn that produces some exceptional beers.

The house itself is very comfortable with a nice garden. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances, crockery and cutlery. Communication with Dave Thornton was good and he was there to greet us and show us around. This is a lovely place to spend time in a beautiful and fascinating area.

Simply perfect.

  • 5 of 5

This is the most homely, clean, neutrally furnished, and well equipped cottage we have ever stayed in, and we have rented lots very nice places in the area over the years. The location is perfect .....so tranquil. Open spaces and spectacular views abound. The costal walks along the headland are a must and suitable for mountain biking (if you are up for a bit of a climb with bike on back). Dave and his parents who help to keep the cottage so clean and welcoming are lovely people. All in all a fantastic find, for couples, families, anybody who deserves a well earned break!

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is lovely, comfortable and has everything you need. If you want internet connection it's just a short walk to Plas y Weddw where you can pick it up. The owner was very helpful and accommodating, we even had wine and chocolates on arrival! The view from the cottage is stunning and the surrounding area is absolutely beautiful - Plas y Weddw, the beach, everything. The location is perfect, a short drive to Abersoch, Criccieth, Pwllheli and not much further to Portmeirion, Beddgelert etc. We loved it and will definitely go back one day

Comfortable cottage in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Paddock Cottage. The cottage is tastefully converted and well decorated in neutral colours. Dave was most friendly and helpful, and attended immediately to our one repair problem, which was a leaking basin. What makes this cottage stand out is the fabulous location. It is situated on the edge of a private green, so is totally tranquil, but you also benefit from the beautiful Plas Glyn-y-Weddw Art Gallery and gardens above, and the glorious Llanbedrog beach below. The beach is atmospheric both at high tide when the waves almost lap the two cottages on the edge of it, and at low tide when the sea retreats, leaving extensive stretches of sand. It is sheltered and safe for young children. You also have the advantage of the cafe in the art gallery and the bistro on the beach, both close at hand. This is before you start exploring the idyllic countryside and coast of the Llyn. The coast path has wonderful views of sea and mountains and Bardsey Island is magic. A great base for families with young children and also for people who enjoy walking and birdwatching.

Amazing Memories

  • 5 of 5

My family (parents, myself and 2 sisters) had many amazing holidays in this cottage back in the 70s! It looks exactly the same except new fittings and only 2 beds in the second bedroom (us 3 sisters were all in there back then!). It is set in the most idylic location and I have the best memories of our holidays there. You must visit!
