Local Area around Glanfa Self Catering Holiday Cottage to let, Porthmadog, North Wales

Morfa Bychan is a pretty village which has managed to retain its charm and is located to the east of the popular Llyn Peninsular and adjacent west of the Snowdonia National Park.

It is 5 minutes drive from Porthmadog and within 5 minutes walking distance from the miles of golden sandy beach at Black Rock Sands, which stretches for two miles from the eastern end of the National Trust's Ynys Cyngar on the Afon Glaslyn (River Glaslyn) estuary, renowned as a haven for migrating birds and wildlife, along Tremadog Bay to Criccieth beach which is accessible at low tide. The sea along Black Rock Sands is shallow, with a gentle gradient making it ideal for swimming and bathing. The sand dunes of Black Rock Sands are a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Morfa Bychan has a Spar shop (small supermarket), a fish-and-chip shop, post office, a gift shop, children's playground and a number of pubs with some family friendly, serving food. The village also contains Porthmadog Golf Club and is near to the Glan Morfa Trout fishery. Morfa Bychan extends towards Cricieth; this part of Morfa Bychan is known as Treflys and is mostly farms.

Our cottage is also the perfect base from which to explore all of Snowdonia; it is the gateway to the country’s most breathtaking National Park covering 840 square miles with its purple tipped mountains and forests.

This charming little town offers something for everyone and our cottage is the ideal getaway for family holidays and short breaks, whilst exploring the many attractions and activities that Snowdonia and the rest of North Wales have to offer.
