Holiday lets in Aberdaron, Gwynedd, Wales

Aberdaron is a quaint and picturesque coastal village on the very western part of the Llŷn Peninsula in Gwynedd, northern west Wales. Sometimes referred to as the ‘Land’s End of Wales’ by locals and tourists alike, this pretty part of the country is home to only just over one thousand residents, making it a lovely place in which to visit if you are looking for peace and tranquillity on your holiday. The Aberdaron beach and village has been given awards and it is a great place to come for a self-catering break, with lots to do from cycling, bird watching and sea kayaking to visiting places of cultural and historical interest.

Less than two miles off the coast of Aberdaron, which was designated a Heritage Coast in 1974, lies Bardsey Island, the inhabitants of which are included in the community of Aberdaron. Aberdaron was once the last resting stop for pilgrims on their way to Bardsey, which is home to many sites of archaeological and historical interest such as the ruins of St Mary’s Abbey. Today, the island is wonderful for its abundance in wildlife, and there is a bird observatory on the island due to its fantastic position on several bird migration routes, and grey seals and dolphins can also be spotted from the island. Whilst on a cottage holiday, taking a day trip to Bardsey from Aberdaron is a must if you have an interest in wildlife and is an enjoyable day out for the whole family.

The beach at Aberdaron is home to secluded coves and golden sands and surfing, sailing and diving beneath the waters are all very popular. Sunbathing is also a popular activity here, which comes as no surprise, and there are also a couple of other beaches nearby if you want to explore further afield, such as Porthor and Porth Ysgo.

If you want to eat out whilst on your cottage break, there are plenty of cafes, pubs and restaurants to eat at in Aberdaron. One of which is the Whistling Sands Café on Porthor Beach which serves hot food such as pizzas and fish and chips, and you can enjoy the food on their terrace overlooking the sands. The café also has an adjacent shop which sells inflatable rubber rings and buckets and spades for the children. The Y Gegin Fawr Café is another great one to visit, and is steeped in history as it used to be a communal kitchen where pilgrims could get a meal on the way to Bardsey Island in the 13th century. Today, the café is known for its delicious scones and cakes, and its dog-friendly terrace is set in a stunning area overlooking the river. Aberdaron is also home to a bakery, local grocery stores and a boat chartering service.
