Daron is at the heart of the beautiful seaside fishing village of Aberdaron and is the largest of the bright and fresh apartments in Henfaes house. The apartment, that is set out on the second and third floor of the house is ideal for a holiday with family and friends. The cafes, pubs and restaurants are on the door step and the impressive sandy beach, which is perfect for paddling, sand castles and for learning to surf is just minutes’ walk away.

There is hiking and cycling from the door with extensive trails across the Peninsula making exploring easy. If you are an experienced surfer you will appreciate the more challenging conditions at nearby Porth Ceiriad and Porth Neigwl. There is excellent bird watching locally with birds nesting on the cliffs and numerous migrating seabirds passing through.

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. For inspiration click on the ‘Nearby’ tab above.

The house sits alongside the new National Trust interpretation centre, Porth y Swnt (which translates as ‘gateway to the sound’) that offers an insight into this areas rich history, culture and environment. Explore, learn, reflect and enjoy the natural environment, and get ideas for activities, walks, attractions and things to do on the peninsula. Guests at Henfaes apartments have free access to Porth y Swnt during their stay.

Things to see and do nearby

South Wales is a land of sweeping green valleys, rugged mountains, woodland and forests and miles of coastal paths laced with heather.

The special places we look after in Pembrokeshire include the rugged landscape and views over to Ireland from St David’s Peninsula, to the nature reserve at Stackpole where otters and dragonflies nestle amongst the water reeds. Then take in the views over the Bristol Channel to Lundy and Exmoor from sun-drenched Rhossili, the highest point on the Gower peninsula.

In North Wales, the dramatic mountain scenery of Snowdonia, with its rivers, waterfalls and the Nant Gwynant valley nestled amongst the mountains and hills, draws people back again and again, while the colourful beach huts at Llanbedrog beach and grey seal-spotting at Porthor Beach are just a few of the highlights of the very special 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

    Cottage felt well maintained

    It was nice to arrive and find the caretakers had left some milk, tea and a few other essentials. Very thoughtful and very appreciated The cottage felt well maintained, like it was being properly looked after. There was some really nice attention to detail - it was those bits that made it feel special.
