PEN LLYN IS
Porth Iago, Porthor (Whistling Sands), Abersoch, Aberdaron, Nefyn, the famous Ty Coch Inn at Porthdinllaen (third best beach bar in the world) and all the beautiful sandy beaches of the peninsula are all close at hand with the nearest beach being less than three miles away.
Walking, golf, sea fishing trips, horse riding and plenty of water sport facilities are available here. The market town of Pwllheli, the resort of Criccieth and Porthmadog as well as numerous historic and scenic attractions such as the Snowdonia National Park, Ffestiniog Railway, castles and the Italian village of Portmeirion are all easily reached from Glampio Coed.
Aberdaron is an idyllic little village of white-painted fishermen's houses and cottages perched on the tip of Lleyn. The famous poet R S Thomas was the vicar of St Hywyn's Church that lies at the water's edge.
