For those looking for the ultimate get-away, this 19th century cottage is the perfect choice. Leave your car and walk down the grassy footpath to Pant Rhiw Cottage, where the spectacular views across Hell’s Mouth Bay make the walk worthwhile. Once inside, the cottage is very comfortable and boasts wonderful views from all rooms and from the front and side gardens and patio.
Pant Rhiw is part of the Plas-yn-Rhiw estate, which was restored and given to the National Trust by the Keating sisters and cottage guests have free access to the Plas-yn-Rhiw manor house and gardens. This is an excellent holiday home for those who enjoy walking or just want a real away-from-it-all cottage for the ultimate relaxing break.
Heating: Electric storage heating included.
Cottage approach: access to the cottage is from the shared village parking area (space for one car for Pant Rhiw) down a long, steep grass footpath of approx 400 metres through two gates, so visitors should be reasonably fit and active. The footpath is unlit, so visitors should arrive in daylight and bring a good torch for night sorties.
Garden: The garden is wild and drops away at the front and sides. It has spectacular views of Hell’s Mouth Bay and there are sheep grazing in the adjacent fields. Although fencing is in place to the garden, dog owners will need to watch their dogs at all times due to the very close proximity of the sheep.
Linen: Duvets and pillows will be on the beds, but you must bring your own sheets, pillow cases, duvet covers and towels.
Television: A television and DVD player are provided, but there is no television reception – guests may want to bring their own DVDs.
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.
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
