This character cottage is a typical early Victorian Welsh quarryman’s cottage of stone, slate and white-wash rendering. It has been carefully renovated to keep the features of the period and it is furnished to retain the cottage style but sympathetically incorporate all modern conveniences. The cosy lounge has the original beams and a lovely inglenook fireplace with a multi-fuel burning stove. This delightful cottage is in the village of Llithfaen on the Northern coast of the Llŷn Peninsula with spectacular views of Snowdonia and Cardigan Bay coastline. There is an open mountain at the rear of the cottage, where sheep graze right up to the window, and there are stunning views from the front aspect.


The cottage sleeps 4 and comprises:-
Upstairs bedroom with double bed; bedroom with 2 single beds [beds with duvets and extra blankets if needed]; ground floor shower room - heated towel rail; cosy lounge living area with wood/multi-fuel burning stove and large kitchen/diner.

Facilities include storage heaters, TV with HD and Freeview, DVD/video, CD/radio, garden furniture, barbecue and cot/highchair (on request). Newly refurbished kitchen diner includes: electric stove, dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge/freeze and microwave grill.

Bed linen and towels are supplied free of charge, as are heating and electricity throughout the year.

The cottage is a very family friendly property, with plenty of toys and activities for children.

Private off-road car park for one car.

Pet dog welcome, but this property is unsuitable for a large dog.

The garden at the front of the house is in a quiet, peaceful setting and sunny position, with spectacular views towards the south coast of the Llŷn, Tydwal Islands and Cardigan Bay. The view from the back of the house looks over fields to the nearby mountains of Yr Eifel.


Llithfaen is a quiet village on the North Wales Llŷn coast. For details click here. Camcyntaf Cottage is half a mile from Llithfaen village on the road to Nant Gwrtheyrn. The beach at Nant Gwtheyrn can be accessed from the cottage by foot but the walk is a steep descent through the pretty Nant valley and, although worth the effort, it is easier to take the car to the car-park at Nant Gwrtheyrn. Nant Gwrtheyrn is a ‘listed’ Victorian quarrying village, now used as The Welsh Language Centre and set in a secluded 200 acre location. The site is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – teeming with wildlife, from wild mountain goats and choughs on the hills to seals, porpoises and dolphins off the secluded beach.

Surrounding area

Camcyntaf Cottage is ideally situated for exploring the coast and mountains of North Wales. This property is surrounded by beautiful scenery and walks with the North Wales Coastal Path on the doorstep and is within easy reach of lovely safe, sandy beaches. The Llŷn Peninsula is renowned for its stunning beaches, sheltered coves and secluded bays with rock-pooling and cliff walks, bird watching, fishing and golf. Nefyn, Abersoch, Llanbedrog, Hell's Mouth, Pwllheli and other beaches for sailing, water-sports and beach activities are within easy reach. Camcyntaf Cottage is central for both sea and mountain activities and all attractions in Snowdonia and the Llŷn.

This area of Wales is still very traditional to the Welsh way of life and culture. Welsh is spoken as the first language by the majority of people in the area, but you can be assured of a heartfelt ‘croeso’ (‘welcome’) from the local population. As a visitor to the area you really can expect a warm ‘welcome in the hillside’.
