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 with views over the village and the sea in the far distance 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. 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

    Lovely location

    The location was lovely and perfect for exploring different NT beaches etc. I don't like visiting the same place twice so was nice to be able to go to different places.

    Perfect location

    We originally booked the cottage for ourselves, then later on our very pregnant daughter and her 20 month old son were available to join us as she had stopped work early for her expected baby. My husband telephoned and everything was quickly arranged for all 4 beds to be made. Although the cottage is listed as not really suitable for very young children, we were perfectly happy and comfortable. We took a travel cot and chair seat for him. We know this cottage from before it belonged to the NT, and have stayed here before. The location is perfect for us, and means we can leave our car all week and get everywhere we want to go on foot. The local shop and pubs provided food and the beach has always been the centre for our family holiday. Enlli is situated in a prime location in Aberdaron, with a terrific view of life in the village passing before your eyes across the central bridge. With the sitting room being upstairs, we were more than happy watching the world go by as our grandson and daughter slept downstairs.
