Ysgo Holiday Caravan - Rhiw
LUXURY 2 BEDROOM CARAVAN ON A PRIVATE PLOT AT PORTH YSGO, RHIW - Sleeps 4/6.
This fully equipped caravan has double glazing and central heating throughout. It consists of an open plan lounge with fold-out occasional bed, dining area, kitchen, 2 bedrooms-the master being en-suite, plus a separate family bathroom. Outside has a private and secure garden with exterior lighting, decking, BBQ facility, garden furniture for outside dining with views overlooking the countryside towards the sea and ample parking space.
Ysgo is a small working farm, run by a welsh speaking family, near the village of Rhiw; overlooking the picturesque valley leading to Porth Ysgo beach which is only a 5 minutes walk down the coastal path, where you can enjoy the memorable views of the surrounding landscape and the small waterfall that spills onto the secluded sand and pebbles beach. Porth Ysgo lies within the 'Pen Llyn a'r Sarnau' Special Area of Conservation, and has a diverse range of wildlife and marine habitats. Bottlenose Dolphins, Harbour Porpoises, Grey Seals and the rare Chough, which you can recognise from its harsh call, red legs and beak, can all be observed along the coast of Cardigan Bay. It's a haven for walking enthusiasts with magnificent coastal and mountain walks and ideal for biking, bouldering, bird watching, fishing, swimming, diving or simply just sunbathing and having fun.
The village of Aberdaron, situated on the very tip of the Llyn Peninsula, renowned for its scenery in an area of outstanding natural beauty and its award winning beach is only 2 miles away. Amenities at the village include a grocery store, newsagents, bakery, post office, 2 cafes and 2 popular pubs/restaurants offering lunchtime and evening meals. Not far is Porth Meudwy, a little fishermans cove where a four mile boat trip will take you to the Holly Isle of Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island); details can be obtained from the Bardsey Island Trust or through Enlli Charter.
Porth Neigwl beach (Hell's Mouth), which is 4 miles long with excellent water quality is one of the best surfing beaches in North Wales, and located only a 10 minute drive from Ysgo. The popular village of Abersoch with its many fashion stores and cafes is also only a 15 minute drive away, where the large, sheltered bay provides ideal conditions for windsurfing, sailing, power boating and jet skiing. You will find golden sands, and everything form long stretches to secluded coves, all within a few miles of Ysgo.
Pwllheli our busy market town with its impressive new marina and two glorious beaches is only 13 miles away. Wednesday & Sunday is market day in Pwllheli, where there is always a bargain to be had. Also in the town centre you will find many shops and supermarkets, selling everything you will need for your holiday.
Much of Llyn is rolling countryside, with many hills all worth a climb, like Mynydd Rhiw, Yr Eifl, Garn Fadryn and Garn Boduan. Why not set yourself the goal of conquering yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) Wales's highest peak! All the hills give stunning views over Llyn and on a clear day Snowdonia, all of Cardigan Bay and Anglesey up to Holyhead Mountain.
The accommodation layout consists of an open plan lounge/kitchen & dining area. The lounge is very spacious, light bright and airy with windows to both sides and a huge front window to enjoy the view of the surrounding landscape and Cardigan Bay. It has a comfortable large corner settee with fold-out occasional bed, electric fire, free standing flat screen TV with DVD player and a coffee table.

We had a wonderful few days here. The most luxurious caravan we have stayed in, and certainly the window makes it! What more can we say that hasn't been said already ditto marks under all of it. Many thanks Family Jones for letting us share your peace(!) of the countryside. Hope we shall see you again and all our best wishes. Mike & Les.
Wonderful welcome & enjoyed the wine. The caravan is spacious with everything needed. Location fabulous with excellent views. Wildlife & walks wonderful. Star filled skies at night, the sound of the sea can be heard outside the caravan. As if all this was not enough the weather was unbelievable. Sunshine every day, no rain. Brought warm clothing & waterproofs, had to go and buy sun cream. Thank you Esyllt & Rob. Hope to be back next year. Ernie & Elaine.
Such a wonderful place. As the sun and the wind move over the land the long grasses move wavelike. All the birds in the neighbourhood seem to visit the feeders in the hawthorn, but something of a puzzle, what happened to the fat balls placed in feeder in one morning, two big fat balls disappeared leaving not a crumb in the container. What bird or creature could be responsible or could a human prankster be involved? We spend a fantastic 4 1/2 - 5 hours on a boat trip to Bardsey. The weather was perfect and Colin (the boat man) full of fascinating facts about the sea, land and folklore - do go! This our second visit but will not be our last. The caravan answers every one of our needs, couldnt be better. Paul & Pat Hope
Wow, stunning place, although we only live in Denbighshire we hadn't explored much of Wales before. We are very proud to be Welsh seeing such beauty on our doorstep. Two wet days out of seven, the sun shone down on us allowing us to visit four different beaches. Our welcome was warm and welcome and little gifts of wine and sweets for Louis was very much appreciated. The caravan truly is luxurious, and yes the shower is wonderful. All your facilities included with the caravan have been well though out, your attention to detail is something to be proud of. The views are spectacular and we too saw the barn owl that comes out at dusk. We will most definitely be coming back again. Thank you so much. Andy, Carla & Little Louis
Another wonderful stay at Ysgo again, (fourth visit)! The weather has been mixed, but only got wet one day; on a soggy coastal walk to Aberdaron. The caravan is so warm and cosy it didn't matter, we soon got warm and dry, and its great having the shed and washing machine to put all the wet things in. We've had two glorious days of sunshine since, and the girls have been having a wonderful time on Whistling Sands and Ysgo beach. Aberdaron is as lovely as ever, the bakery is no good for the waist line though (the best welsh cakes ever). The girls have been pony riding this year at Cilan Fawr (the headland next to Abersoch). Its not cheat! but worth the treat! one hours walk on the stunning headland, with great views over the Cardigan Bay and Snowdonia. The girls loved it (me too). We've seen the Barn Owl a couple of times, hares too. Thank you again for sharing this special place and for the wine & sweets. We will most definitely be back. Love Lorraine, Paul, Edie & Poppy
Another super holiday, thank you so much! This spot is magical, the beaches and the view cannot be beaten. We found a starfish for the first time. The girls have become mini surfers and we made friends with a goat (Henry we love you). The new caravan is ridiculously luxurious an ensuite!! And possibly the best shower in the universe. We were toasty and comfortable and could not ask for more. Needless to say we will be back. It is lovely to see Jac growing and fingers crossed for the new family home. We love this holiday, see you in a year! All the best and much affection. Neal, Simi, Esther & Rita
What a wonderful caravan, wonderful view and wonderful warm welcome from Rob and Esyllt. We experience a series of stunning walks and fantastic view along the coastline. The walks provided by Esyllt were accurate and managed to get us out of several scraps!! I am now a caravan convert and both my husband and I will be looking forward to return. Keep working towards your vision. With our most regards. Pat & Frank
We have had such a great time here that we have already booked up for next year. The caravan is very well equipped with fantastic views towards the sea and the hills behind. The surrounding area is enjoyable whatever the weather. The area is rich in natural history, during our week we recorded 120 species of flowers and 41 bird species. We loved the quietness of the area and with no street lighting could enjoy the night sky. Esyllt and Rob have been most friendly and helpful and Jack keeps the plants watered. Many thanks for a wonderful holiday and we look forward to next year. Best wishes. Pat & Paul
Had a fantastic two weeks, weather fantastic, scenery beautiful, caravan out of this world. This is a little bit of paradise. We caught bass on the beach as well as small turbot. There are plenty of marks that you can catch mackerel and pollock from, but most of them require a long walk and usually a climb at the end. We walked from Aberdaron to Porth Meudwy and bought some fresh crabs from one of the boats coming in, they tasted fantastic. Will be back for sure. So to Esyllt, Rob & Jac, diolch yn fawr.
Great weather and such a tranquil location. Couldn't have asked for a better break. The caravan is a delight. Big thank you to Rob & Esyllt! Wont be the last time I come here, who needs Spain!!! Big thanks Alan & family
Another wonderful week at Ysgo, the new caravan is amazing, wonderful views in every direction. Loving the new panoramic window! The girls (and us) loved to see cows in the back garden in the morning, we made lots of friends. I must admit it is a first for me to go goat chasing too!!! The beach was magnificent, a total sun trap, with amazingly friendly people. We went to the chapel up the road for the first time and found the door was open. We ventured inside and then looked around the graveyard. A big adventure for the children. We were very lucky with the weather this week, although the forecast was bad. We were on the beach six days out of seven with good weather, Porth Iago or Porth Dinllaen and Aberdaron of course .. Our best beachtime was on Ysgo to be honest and we even saw a sea lion! In essence: one of the most foremost places I would wish to spend my time. Thank you to Esyllt, Rob & Jac for sharing this special place with us. Love Paul, Lorraine, Edie & Poppy
What a beautiful location quiet and tranquil with stunning scenery and wonderful weather totally unexpected for the first week in September! We have had a great week enjoying the beaches and the excellent walks along the coast. Bardsey Island was particularly attractive. The caravan is really well equipped and extremely comfortable. We will certainly be coming back again if there is any week free. We really appreciated the layout of the plot, with the parking, decking, shed and washing machine. We'll be interested to see the progress of the farm renovation work next time we come! Best wishes with that! We will be back! Liz & Scott & Liz & Doug
Our first visit to this most lovely part of Wales, and what a joy to find a luxury home awaiting us, hard to think of it as a caravan, so beautifully fitted out with every possible need. Very many thanks Esyllt & Rob allowing us to share the pleasure of this lovely home and beautiful location. The superb weather made it perfect. We enjoyed seeing all the animals, wild ones too, feeding the birds was fun. Thank you for you well stocked info box, with its help we were able to visit many interesting places, also for the bottle of wine, but mostly for your so warm welcome. We hope all goes well with the buildings, we would certainly like to return, maybe see it completed. Very best wishes, Sally & Bill
I cant believe how lucky I was finding this wonderful spot on the internet. We have loved every minute. The caravan and its situation has been ideal for us all. We have been down to Aberdaron several times and this has been our best visit yet. Sun everyday, clear blue skies and recurring fresh air has left us all feeling restored and rejuvenated. Porth Ysgo has been a real gem the views and coconut scent of the gorse drawing you down. The hours have passed like minutes and already we cant wait for our next visit. Happy days! Paul, Ali, Finn, Freddy & Lola
Cracking views and a perfect place to relax never had our own private beach before! What a treat enjoyed seeing the calves, lambs & buzzards and not doing much for a few days. Lovely to meet Jac and family and thank you for the warm welcome. Hope to learn a bit more Welsh for next time a massive DIOLCH to you all. Pete, Becky, Elliott & Toby
Thank you for greeting us on our arrival, nice gesture, the wine. Caravan 1st class, everything you require, very clean, very comfortable, heating good. Nice walk down to the beach. Very interesting seeing old mine workings, beautiful waterfall, also spotted a lizard. Nice birds around caravan, Chuffinch, Robins, Blue Tits also saw a fox going across field and a stoat on beach path. Liked Aberdaron quaint place. Thanking you once again for all your hard work, stunning views from caravan. Nice to see your new arrivals Honey and Heidi, two nice goats. Wishing you all the best with the work on your new home. Freda & Marry. p.s. Patio area and decking very nice.
Enjoyed a lovely week biking and walking. Weather has been good and location fantastic. No motorways, dual carriageways or police sirens! Just peace and quiet. Sad to be going home, hope to be back again. Thanks Wayne & Jill
Another fantastic week our 3rd visit and guess what we will be back all being well. Marvellous weather all you can say is HOT spent a lot of time on Ysgo beach and in the sea. Plenty of wildlife about saw dolphins in the bay again, some lovely fish and crabs in the sea. Esyllt as friendly as ever and Jac well he is just one adorable cutie. Good luck to you all with your new house. Best wishes Jayne & Paul
Another fantastic week in this beautiful part of gods beautiful creation. We have had a wonderful relaxing and refreshing week with good weather and a warm welcome. Caravan as good as ever clean, cosy, well equipped and in such a peaceful location. Thanks again Esyllt for sharing this area wit us. We hope to be back next year. Lots of love Jonathan & Rachel
A warm welcome to a comfortable quiet retreat. Great location with lots of interesting wildlife. Such a peaceful place, and how wonderful to see a barn owl, grass snake (no adder this time) and such a fab variety of birdlife. We've had a great time and are hoping to come back in Autumn. Big thanks to you all again for such a warm welcome. With love and best wishes Aran, Bendle & Yarrow
Thank you Esyllt and family. Lovely short stay on thus our first trip to the Lleyn Peninsula. Clean, tidy and very well equipped caravan, beautiful spot to explore gorgeous coastline with wonderful views and fantastic walks right outside the door. Sally & Chris
'Had a great 4 night stay in the caravan. Watched the barn owl and hares from the window - fantastic sight. Walked up to Mynydd Penarfynydd and Mynydd y Graig - great views, saw choughs up there. Have been to Whistling Sands, Morfa Nefyn and Porth Dinllaen, Plas yn Rhiw (National Trust Small House & Garden) interesting house and lovely gardens then on to Hells Mouth Bay. Fantastic weather, really hot. Had a great meal at the Ship, Aberdaron. I had red snapper fish and Paul had duck. Lovely clean caravan. Thanks very much'. Helen & Paul
'What a fantastic holiday, we can't quite believe it's over. It's been a week of firsts. 1st time in the Llyn Peninsula, 1st hol with our 2 yr old daughter (who's had an absolute ball), 1st sighting of wild adders near the caravan and 1st time we've caught and eaten fresh sea-bass from the rocks to the right of the beach (an unexpected treat). We've been jammy with the weather, arriving in a heatwave, had 1 days rain, oh well can't have everything, but the cosy, well equipped caravan provided by the Jones' sorted that day out. Spent 3 days on the beach at Whistling Sands (a must visit) our little girls favourite place, sand, paddling and ice cream, all a 2 yr old needs. We'd be lying if we said we won't be back. Rob & Esyllt thank you and what a place to bring little Jac up'. Graeme, Julie & Grace
'Back again for another week in this beautiful part of the world. We love this place, could never tire of the views. Our six year old was so exited to be coming here again. Weather was a mixed bag, only managed 3 beach days. Friday a complete wash out (not just here, all over uk)! Recommend Black Rock Sands if your kids want to head for the beach, but the weather's a bit 'iffy'. Just drive your car on - and dash back to it if the heavens open. Lots of new experiences for our 1 year old - he's had a great time. See you next year, great to see baby Jac'. Love Russ, Lynne, Natasha & Alex
'Weather hasn't been particularly kind but we have had a couple of lovely days. Yesterday we watched a family of choughs on Mynydd Penarfynydd. Also saw a pod of 4 or 5 dolphins fishing in the bay one evening. The young barn owls came out one evening but otherwise probably stayed dry in their chimney! Lizard yesterday on Mynydd y Graig. Explored the beautiful church at Llangwnnadl, which is a real gem. The new cafe in Botwnnog is also a find - welcoming and good food'. Thanks again Andy & John
'Another fantastic week, as enjoyable as the last one. Caravan and location as lovely as ever, already decided we will be back. Walking and wildlife absolutely out of this world - seen barn owls nearly every night, stoat, hares, rabbits, lizards very near caravan and dolphins in the bay. Met Jac for the first time what a little cutie he is, Esyllt as welcoming as ever, thank you for sharing this part of the world with us'. Jayne & Paul
'Been coming to this area for 35yrs for holidays - that says it all. Thank you for such a lovely caravan in such a beautiful setting. Peace and quiet and view of sea superb. Can't wait to come back next year. Thank you for the warm welcome'. Keith & Carolyn
'Our first caravan holiday can not tell you how excited we were and goodness me it is WONDERFUL...the view...spectacular! The caravan is spotless, comfortable, thoughtful. Lovely warm welcome. Beautiful beach-breathtaking. Easy adventures for our 2 girls...delighted. This is our first night...am already writing to say how much we have enjoyed it and that we are coming back-no doubt! Thank you so much'. Neal, Simi, Esther & Rita
'An amazing time had by all. One of the most peaceful and beautiful locations we've stayed at. Porth Ysgo is an essential trip at the end of everyday. If the weather is right then Whistling Sands is a superb beach off the beaten track with good facilities. Abersoch and Pwllheli are both good days out with plenty of parking and more sandy beaches. Thanks Esyllt & Rob for providing a location that has given us our best family holiday up to now'. The Cresty Clan
'My car refused to start not long after I got here - so it really was a walking holiday! The lanes are beautiful at this time of year, and the footpaths even better! I've seen choughs, oyster catchers, a heron (on the beach!) lots of buzzards and a slow worm. No barn owl though. All the beaches near here are fantastic but Ysgo is hard to beat. I have been very, very lucky with the weather - sunny throughout my second week and not too bad the first week. The caravan is perfect in every way and was lovely and warm & cosy on the couple of occasions that it was wet & windy. I can't imagine that I well ever go on holiday anywhere else from now on. Many thanks'. Sue
'Thank you again for a glorious holiday (helped of course by fabulous weather). But the warm welcome & beautiful van make it extra special. No bats of lizards this year but we have enjoyed the barn owls, still feeding their growing owlets on the chimney stacks or ridges of the old farm. For the 1st time for perhaps 30yrs we got to Bardsey again - not cheap but well worth it if you're interested in how they're balancing conservation with preserving the island economy. Boatman Colin is very knowledgeable. See you next year and we hope our successors this year enjoy their holidays'. Andy & John
'Had a lovely fortnight. Caravan is lovely, very spacious with amazing views and very clean. Seen some lovely wildlife including rowens, buzzards,, swallows & watched the barn owls several evenings. Saw some choughs nearby & curlews regularly flying over. Enjoyed the beach at Porth Ysgo despite the long climb back. Had some lovely walks. Would love to come back'. Trevor, Sue, Esther & Rebekah
'We are true 'Townies'! This place had no shops, no traffic, no people and so much peace, we were actually scared to start with .... but it was absolutely fantastic! Our own private beach and views to die for. Thank you for your very warm welcome and for sharing your bit of Wales with us'. Debs & Steve
'I would just like to thank you for such a wonderful holiday. We haven't been on many holidays but this has, by far, been the best. We were overwhelmed by the beauty of the beach and the whole area in general. We will definitely be coming back again.' Hannah, Mat, Kate & Mark
'We've had a fantastic, relaxing week here on the beautiful Lleyn Peninsula. We've had plenty of warm sunshine, dodged the showers and survived a wild windy night when the van well and truly rocked (and for all the wrong reasons!). Scenery and beaches glorious, ridge to left well worth a visit (wild horses, 20+ chough, buzzards, kestrels etc). Porth Ysgo, Oer, Neigwl etc all beautiful. Just to make all complete, real ale in Aberdaron and nightly performing barn owls (and cute cat!). Well be back. Friday evening saw porpoises in bay, fox and hare in field opposite and barn owls again. Great end to holiday.' Mike & Suzanne
'We've wanted to stay here as long as we've been coming to Llyn, as Ysgo is our favourite beach. The van is excellent in every way. You could have a great holiday without using the car at all, as there are lots of walks from here and it's not far to Aberdaron. Haven't seen the owls, but Tigger has been a regular visitor; have seen lizards on the way down to the beach; bats around the buildings, quite a few choughs and more butterflies than in recent years. Thank you so much and hope to see you next year.' Andy, John & Jo
'A hidden jewel on the coast. Breathtaking scenery, solitude, restful. Caravan comfortable and clean.' Lewis Family & Co.
