This fresh, modern apartment is set over two floors of Henfaes house at the heart of the pretty seaside village of Aberdaron on the Llyn Peninsula. It is ideal for a couple or small family looking for a traditional seaside or active holiday. The small roof terrace will entice you out for breakfast on a summer’s morning or to relax over drinks at the end of a busy day.
As well as the extensive sandy beach, just minutes’ walk away, which is perfect for paddling, sand castles and for learning to surf you are surrounded with activity opportunities. If you are an experienced surfer you will appreciate the more challenging conditions at nearby Porth Ceiriad and Porth Neigwl. There is hiking and cycling from the door with extensive trails across the Peninsula. If you like your activity at a more leisurely pace then there is excellent fishing and bird watching locally that might appeal.
It is the ideal base for exploring the excellent beaches of the Llyn Peninsula, neighbouring Anglesey and the mountains of Snowdonia. If you are looking for other ways to entertain your family during your stay we run events and activities at many of our properties in North Wales throughout the year.

Things to see and do nearby
- North Wales
Renowned for the dramatic mountain scenery of Snowdonia with its lakes and rock-strewn mountain passes, North Wales also offers a surprisingly varied countryside, from the beautiful Conwy Valley to the tranquillity of the Isle of Anglesey. The coastline is equally diverse, with sandy beaches, rocky coves and spectacular cliffs - and standing proudly over the land and seascape are some of the country's mightiest castles such as Penrhyn. The National Trust owns some 60,000 acres of coast and countryside in North Wales, including some of the majestic mountains of Snowdonia, unspoilt coastline on the Llyn, and an array of historic houses and castles.
- Llyn Peninsula
The Llyn Peninsula is an eight mile wide strip of land just to the south-west of Caernarfon that is one of Wales\' finest beauty spots. Much of the coastline is in the care of the Trust and there are some fine and accessible beaches. Wildlife enthusiasts will find much to enjoy here and there are also opportunities for sailing, fishing and diving. Plas yn Rhiw is a 16th-century house with Georgian additions with views across Cardigan Bay. One of our holiday homes adjoins the house and the other stands in an elevated position overlooking Hell?s Mouth Bay. Holiday Cottage guests have free access to Plas yn Rhiw house and gardens during opening hours. Other National Trust places nearby include Llanbedrog Beach, Penrhyn Castle, Porthdinllaen, Porthor. Other attractions in the area include Abersoch Beach, famous for its surfing, Aberdaron, Porthdinllaen, Porthor, the beauties of Snowdonia, the wonderfully quirky village of Portmeirion and boat trip to Bardsey Island
