Nestled on a working farm close to Abersoch, Punt Gwynedd offers self-catering accommodation for up to six people. From the cottage, the views stretch down to the four-mile long beach at Porth Neigwl (Hells Mouth) and across to Bardsey Island. On a clear day, Snowdon, Wales highest mountain, is also visible. For those looking for a relaxing holiday close to beautiful unspoilt beaches, and with miles of glorious countryside to explore, Punt Gwynedd is an ideal choice.
The cottage has three bedrooms: one double room, one twin room and one single room that also has a pull out bed. Bedding is supplied, and a cot and high chair are available. The modern bathroom has a bath with overhead electric shower.
Downstairs there is a cosy sitting room with a multi-fuel stove, a sun lounge and a well-stocked kitchen-diner. Self-catering is easy and enjoyable as the kitchen contains an electric cooker, microwave, fridge freezer and a dishwasher. A separate utility room houses a washing machine and tumble dryer.
The closest beach to the house is Porth Neigwl (Hells Mouth), just 5 minutes walk away. The sand and pebble beach stretches for four miles and is very popular with surfers. The beach at Abersoch, just a short drive from Punt Gwynedd, has spectacular views out to St Tudwals Islands. Its sheltered aspect makes it a safe, family-friendly beach, and in summer the bay is dotted with yachts enjoying the calm waters. The summer months also see Abersoch hosting a number of international sailing events. For the younger crows, the Glass Butter Beach Festival is a huge wakeboard, surf and music festival and takes place in Abersoch in August.
Punt Gwynedd is ideally located for exploring the wider area. A day trip to the uniquely charming Portmeirion is thoroughly recommended. Located two miles from Porthmadog, Portmeirion was built between 1925 and 1975, to resemble an Italianate village. Quite apart from the unusual architecture, Portmeirion also has a rich literary and film history, with famous visitors including Frank Lloyd Wright, Ingrid Bergman and Noel Coward. Portmeirions most famous film credit is The Prisoner, but other film and TV appearances include Doctor Who and Citizen Smith.
Venturing a little further afield, cross over the historic Menai Suspension Bridge to visit Anglesey for a day. Beaumaris is a great location to head for, with its castle, gaol and harbour all fascinating locations for a holiday visit. Foodies should try to sample some fresh fish and visit the monthly farmers market in Menai Bridge, or head inland to Llangefni with its thriving independent market.
For those seeking a more relaxed pace for their holiday, Punt Gwynedd is a great base for exploring the miles of local footpaths and hideaway beaches on the Lleyn Peninsula. The walk from Machroes to Abersoch is gentle and follows the beach, with views out to sea and across the headland. For the more energetic, a climb up Mynydd Tir-y-Cwmwd rewards visitors with stunning views from the 132 metre summit.
From gentle walking holidays in a get away from it all location to a fun stay packed with surfing, watersports and outdoor activities, Punt Gwynedd offers a home from home environment and the warmest of welcomes.
