Swyn-y-Mor is situated very close to the beach and golf course in the beautiful village of Morfa Nefyn, Gwynedd. The region, situated on the north side of the Llyn peninsula, is renowned for its safe sandy beaches, natural harbours and spectacular local scenery.

Very close by (15 mins walk across the golf course or beach) is the tiny fishing hamlet of Porth Dinllaen, home to the famous Ty Coch Inn, one of the most popular watering holes in Wales, sit on the pub wall with a pint and their wonderful ploughmans lunch, looking out to see at the spectacular views, take a walk round to lifeboat bay to see the seals basking and if you are lucky catch a glimpse of the school of porpoise as sited last year in the bay. Also we are ideally situated for walking holidays, as the house is close walking distance to lovely walks around the Llyn Peninsular coastal paths, take the walk across the cliffs linking both Morfa Nefyn and Nefyn beaches.

The house is in walking distance to the local shop, post office and park, the Cliffs public house has scenic views over the bay(130 adult steps there, but a few more on the way back!)

A short drive to the costal town of Pwllheli, and you will find a large selection of gift shops and clothes boutiques, major supermarket chains, a fun fair,. marina, swimming pool with slide/ leisure centre, cinema ,pubs and restaurants, as well as Glasfryn parc, that has 10 pin bowling, go carting, archery, wakeboarding and canoeing

Why not visit some of the local beaches…


Porth Oer Beach (Whistling Sands)

One of the most noteworthy beaches on the Llyn Peninsula as has the most beautiful sand here that does actually “squeak” under your feet!

Llanbedrog Beach

Has a mile long stretch of sand and is one of the calmest beaches in Wales, it is a dog friendly beach ,owned by the National Trust, with parking facilities,and a beach cafe

Aberdaron Beach

This beach is made up mostly of sand with the odd large rock around. The picturesque village is situated right on the back of the beach, good for surfers. Aberdaron, on the Llŷn Heritage Coast, has a glorious sandy beach with beautiful headlands on both ends of the beach.


The main beach is sandy and very sheltered which makes it popular with water sports enthusiasts e.g. wake boarders and water-skiers. There are often sailing events which take place off the beach here and during the summer the beach is packed with plenty going on
