We travelled from Hafan y Mor along many winding single track lanes to Plas yn Rhiw. Unfortunately, the house was closed due to high winds of the previous day. I am not sure why this house needs to be closed due to high winds anyway....More

After taking annual holidays around Aberdaron for over 30 years, we decided to visit this house as the day was quite overcase and showery. It is set on the beautiful Welsh coast and has its own car park which is just below the location of...More

Although I've visited the Llyn Peninsula many times I'd not visited this National Trust property. Despite it being a damp, dreary day, we had a great time there. The gardens are lovely and were great for playing hide and seek with the grandchildren! The views...More
