Clynnog Fawr Village and the Llyn Peninsular
Means of Travel around the Llyn Peninsular

The cottage lies on the main route to Pwllheli and Caernarfon. From Pwllheli you can pick up the picturesque Cambrian rail link to Criccieth, Porthmadog and Harlech and then on to Shrewsbury and Birmingham. From Caernarfon bus services run to Anglesey or to the coastal resorts of Conwy, Llanduduno, Colwyn Bay and Rhyl. A rail link via nearby Bangor serves Holyhead or Chester and destinations via Manchester.

Aspects of Clynnog Fawr and the immediate local area
The immediate local area is a contrast of mountain and coast where the Snowdonia range meets the coastal Llyn Peninsula. Take a mile long beach walk to Aberdesach with a detour to St.Beuno’s Well famed for its healing properties. If you are feeling more energetic just off the Nefyn road at Llanaelhaearn (approx 4 miles) ascend Yr Eifl to Tre’r-Ceiri (town of the fortresses) a series of well preserved settlements from the Iron Age (200 BC) to the 4th century AD with panoramic views of the surrounding area. If that sounds too strenuous, take a car ride up the beautiful Nantlle Valley to Rhyd-Ddu and have lunch in the Cwellyn Arms pub on the road to Beddgelert.
