Additional Location Information
The Llyn Peninsula is one of Wales' finest beauty spots. The Lleyn Peninsula (the Llyn) is usually defined as the strip of land which is South West of the A487 which runs from Caernarfon to Porthmadog. For most of its length it is only 8 miles wide. Much of the coastline is National Trust maintained.
The Welsh name for this area is Pen Llýn. The spelling of Llýn often changes to Lleyn which is probably more correct for English, but the former spelling is more commonly used locally.
The peninsula stretches out around 30 miles into the Irish Sea and is only around 8 miles wide for much of it's length. Being west of the Welsh mountains and in the Gulf Stream, Llyn enjoys a mild, drier climate than that of the rest of Wales. During the winter there are few or no frosts, but the snow on the mountains in the distance is a beautiful sight.
Around the peninsula's nearly 100 miles of coastline, there are sweeping bays, small coves and rocky cliffs as well as islands, reefs and impressive headlands. The Llyn offers a wealth of history, spectacular scenery and hidden nooks and crannies. It's a land of magic and mystery, with sandy beaches, a variety of activities from water sports to horse riding and golf, rambling walks through nature reserves, ancient ruins and megalithic sites. For the wildlife enthusiast there are many things to see; sea-lions, Chuffs (Bardsey Island) and many bird species. Sailing, Fishing and Diving are also popular in the area. After all that activity there are many places to spend the evening ranging from quiet pubs to top quality restaurants.

On arrival we were warmly greeted by Jim and Delyth, who's extensive knowledge of the area gave us a great start to planning our week away.
The accommodation was all we could ask for - very clean, well equipped and clearly furnished with 5 Star quality in mind. The real log fire in the lounge (logs were provided) is an especially nice touch, and made the evenings that little bit more relaxing. The location was quiet and peaceful, with ample garden space. Despite the quiet location, amenities and attractions are not too far away.
I can highly recommend the quad biking at Glasfryn Parc (amongst the many other activities they do there), and visiting the beautiful surrounding Welsh towns and villages. There's also plenty of other activities such as paintballing, bowling, and a plethora of walks and hikes to do during your stay.
To summarise, I would recommend the Bryn Llefrith Bach cottage to anyone wanting a nice, quiet location but with plenty to do in the surrounding area. I left feeling refreshed and happy, and will definitely be booking again this year.
An amazing holiday
