En-suite bathroom, private hot tub and stunning views spells luxury living on the Llŷn Peninsula

If nature was a beauty contest, the Llŷn Peninsula might just win best all-rounder. For ‘Snowdonia’s arm’ exhibits the best of Wales’ many wonders – lush green hillsides, hidden coves and sandy beaches peppered with timeless seaside settlements, all bookended by the bluest of seas and dramatic mountain peaks. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the peninsula’s proximity to Snowdonia National Park means visitors can be scaling the mighty mountains in the morning before enjoying a lazy afternoon on the beach, all in the same day. Needless to say, this peerless position means the views from pretty much anywhere are simply breathtaking. Case in point – the mountains and distant sea vistas from the private hot tub at this cracking new glamping getaway near Pwllheli. 

A hideaway in name and nature, Tan-y-Capel Hideaway lies on a secluded three acre spot in the tiny hamlet of Ceidio. For any couples seeking a romantic retreat in one of the country’s most stunning settings, this is the place. Comprising just a single hi-spec pod situated in a tranquil garden, glampers here are the sole guests so privacy is assured. The cosy abode features a proper double bed, with an additional futon that converts to a comfy single bed for an extra guest. It’s entirely self-contained too with an en-suite bathroom featuring a modern shower dispensing instant hot water and a proper flush toilet. In addition, a neat little kitchenette features most mod-cons plus all the kit and caboodle. But it’s outside where the accommodation really comes into its own. Beside the modern gas-powered barbecue for al fresco dining, there’s a new roto spa hot tub with views across to Garn Boduan and the distant Irish Sea. If there’s a more decadent way to do glamping than watching the sunset with a glass of bubbly while soaking in the bubbles, we’ll do our utmost to find it. Thanks to the Llŷn Peninsula’s curious micro-climate –making it one of Wales’ sunniest regions – you’ll certainly get your money’s worth out on the sun deck (though the hot tub and de rigueur fluffy bath robes are included in the price).

If you can tear yourself away from this lavish lodge, there’s an abundance of things to see and do in the vicinity. The Llŷn’s stretch of the 870-mile Wales Coast Path is amongst the most stunning and is eminently accessible from the site. Be sure to make it to picturesque Porthdinllaen beach, home to the famous Ty Coch Inn, a legendary beachside boozer that regularly features amongst the world’s best in the travel polls. A pint and a paddle on a hot summer’s day – what more could you ask for?

Nearby

The Llŷn Peninsula is one of Wales’ most captivating coastal regions. Explore its many stunning beaches like Porth Nefyn (2 miles away) or Porthdinllaen (3 miles) home to one of the world’s best beach bars. For surfing (of the board, kite and wind variety) Porth Neigwl is excellent or you could spend a day at chic Abersoch, the sailing capital of Wales. There are several more hidden spots along the coast that are only accessible via the Wales Coast Path – just ask your hosts for the best walking or cycling routes. Further afield, Caernarfon and Criccieth are well worth a visit, not least for their castles and stunning views (the former’s overlooking Anglesey). The extraordinary Italianate village of Portmeirion (as seen on 60s cult classic TV series The Prisoner) is another essential stop. And with golf is your thing, Nefyn & District Golf Club (01758 720966) is less than 10 mins drive away.

Food & Drink

Pwllheli and its environs boasts plenty of pub and places to eat. Y Bryncynan (01758 720879) is less than 2 miles away at Morfa Nefyn. They serve real ales and wholesome pub grub from breakfast through to evening meals. The Ship Inn (01758 720559) at Edern serves exquisite dishes such as Welsh beef wellington and pan fried hake. Be sure to book ahead for Sunday lunch. The Cliffs Inn (01758 720356), also at Morfa Nefyn, is a great spot for lunch with a spacious sun terrace overlooking the sea. But for views, the pick of the pubs has to be Ty Coch Inn (01758 720498). Regularly voted one of the world’s best beach bars, the beer garden here is the golden sands of Porthdinllaen beach. Other worthy dining options include Plas Bodegroes (01758 612363) and Tremfam Hall (01758 740169) which both come highly recommended by your hosts.
