The Llyn Peninsula
Tucked away beyond Snowdonia’s peaks with the Irish Sea on one side and Cardigan Bay on the other, the Llyn has a distinctive, unspoilt character. Its sunny southern coast draws walkers, wakeboarders and dinghy-sailors, while the ancient pilgrimage site of Bardsey Island, at its tip, is a haven for wildlife.
Children will love the location, usually on a real working farm, while parents will appreciate the high quality of the accommodation as well as the peaceful beauty of the countryside.
There are family friendly resorts and lovely, laidback beaches that draw most of its visitors, especially in summer. The cosy seaside towns of Criccieth, Pwllheli and Abersoch on the southern shore of the Llyn Peninsula must be visited.
An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) protects around a quarter of the Llyn including wild stretches of coast, long-extinct volcanic peaks and grassy hillsides dotted with Iron Age forts. Criccieth, with its battle-worn coastal castle and tidy Victorian terraces, makes a great place to explore, while Pwllheli and Abersoch are both busy seaside towns. In August, Abersoch holds its annual Regatta. This is a fun event, and everyone joins in – whether it’s to compete in the dinghy races or try their hand at competitive crab-catching, sandcastle-building or beach hut-decorating.
The Llyn Peninsula is a lovely, sunny, area with plenty to see and do for young children. Kids will love the activities it has to offer during the day and parents can relax in high quality accommodation in beautiful rural surroundings.
