Plas y Mor is luxury self-catering at its very best. Set in its own large garden off a long, winding road down to the sea, and overlooking the beaches and craggy headlands of Porth Neigwl on the Llyn peninsula, this elegant hilltop property adds a contemporary twist to its Welsh rustic heritage. After a day by the water or in the hills, relax in the outdoor hot tub and soak in the coastal views.
A hilltop heritage home
Plas y Mor is a fantastic choice for group holidays and family gatherings. With easy access to beaches and hiking and mountain biking trails, and with an outdoor game room, two large sitting rooms, and six bedrooms, guests will not be in want for activities or privacy when they need it. There is even an ideal little chillout room for teenagers on the second floor. When it’s time to get together again and share stories, there is more than enough room in the kitchen/dining room. And you’ll be gathering in style – the kitchen is light and modern, and fully-equipped. It also benefits from six glass panels that frame the view of the bay and Snowdonia beyond. These glass panels open on to the patio, where guests can enjoy drinks, dine al fresco, and share memories and dreams.
In the corner of the dining area is a large, comfortable leather sofa, cosily set by the wood burner for those chilly evenings you still want to gaze out at the sea. The next room over, and sharing that same wood burner in a classic example of the owner’s discerning eye for style, is the first of the two sitting rooms. Decorated with a honey, white, and blue pallet that evoke its coastal setting, this room also enjoys lots of light and stunning views through its large windows. Then, in another tasteful nod to its roots, the second sitting room boasts lovely, traditional Welsh furnishings and a 1920s tiled fireplace.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
For younger families, there is a king-size and bunk bed family room on the ground floor. Guests without children might even want this room just for the view. The family bedroom is en-suite, although there is also a second shower room with WC on the ground floor.
The next four bedrooms are on the first floor. The king-size room has a quaint iron-frame bed, while the double room has a wonderful view of the Rhiw Mountain and its carpets of gorse and heather. Then there is a twin room and a second king-size room, this one with a beautiful brass-and-iron bed frame and more stunning views over the bay. For all of the bedrooms on the first floor, there are a shower room and a separate family bathroom with a freestanding bath, an exposed original brick wall, and a lovely 1920s arched entrance at the back.
The bedroom on the second floor is a charming twin room with Velux windows for plenty of light. This room shares the second floor with the little chill out room and has access to a shower room with WC.
Two well-behaved dogs are welcome. We are happy to include hot tub towels. A large starter basket of logs are provided for your stay and additional logs can be purchased locally.

The property was gorgeous, Carol the owner was lovely and on hand if we needed anything and everyone we met in the villages/shops etc. were very friendly and welcoming. So much to do and see, it definitely requires another visit. Ms Donna Cunningham - 19th September 2018
Lovely place. Great views.William from Surrey - 15th April 2018
The owner presents a beautiful home in an amazing setting, the view is outstanding and the interior has been thoughtfully designed for comfort and the practicalities of large groups.Terence from Oldham - 8th April 2018
Thank you, Carol, for letting us stay in your amazing house. The Christmas decorations were absolutely fantastic, adding the finishing touches. We all enjoyed the amazing space throughout the house and made good use of the games room and fab hot tub. The views are stunning and we all had a wonderful time with lots of happy memories.The Dawson's, West Yorkshire - 5th January 2018
We had a very enjoyable holiday in this house. The house is beautiful and the hot tub is great - my son, aged 11. An absolutely amazing house and stunning location. The house was even better than we had expected and the games room and hot tub were the icing on the cake! Stunning Christmas decorations gave the house a lovely festive feel. Despite the high winds we managed a coastal walk every day. Ideal base for three families - 6 adults and 6 children. We would highly recommend it!The Coopers family, West Yorkshire - 5th January 2018
Superbly located and equipped property, highly recommended.Sally from Royston - 3rd January 2018
Beautiful location for our Xmas celebrations. Comfortable, warm, cosy and well stocked. Lovely hamper of local goodness. Stunning views across the bay. Weather changeable but two wonderful days to enjoy the coastal walks. Thank you!Family from UK - 29th December 2017
Thank you for your welcome, the house is wonderful and the Christmas decorations has made it special. The house had everything and more in making my husband's 70th Birthday, everything we hoped for. Great fun was had by everyone when it snowed on Sunday. We will remember the amazing views for years to come.Gloria and family - 16th December 2017

After coming to Llyn every year throughout the 60's, 70's,80's and 90's, our family (plus younger generations) reassembled this year, and Plas y Môr was the perfect venue. Every one of us (ranging from 16-83) had a wonderful stay, and we were bowled over by the house and the views. Thank you so much for the amazing transformation you have brought to this houseThe Coe Family - 14th July 2017
We have been to various holiday cottages but Plas y Mor beats them all. Your beautiful home went beyond our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We definitely have wonderful memories of our holiday and we hope to come back again. If we were to give marks out of 10 Plas y Mor would get 11.
Kadziramge Family - 22nd June 2017
We have absolutely fallen in love with the place. Beautiful home, amazing view, homely gestures, smiles all around. Carol (owner) is really warm, welcoming and gratifying. Overall it was an experience of a lifetime in a special location. Thank you!Family from Hertfordshire - 15th June 2017
The owner greeted us shortly after arriving. She couldn't have been more accommodating, helpful or charming if she tried. We settled in quick and had THE best time there. Beautiful property which will be highly recommended, set in a beautiful area.
It was professional through and through from the website to the owners.
Tips: Be prepared for inclement weather. Plan for all of the national trust sights and attractions, beaches etc whether it be sun or rain. You'll be guaranteed a fantastic time with a small bit of research.Nick from Leicester - 16th May 2017

Luxurious, relaxing, spacious and amazing. The Ship in Aberdaron was excellent.Liz from Liverpool - 5th September 2016
Family holiday - chance to chill and enjoy some quiet time. We did very little all week as the weather was not too great but we did go to Aberdaron Beach which was great and also clambered down a steep path to the local beach and played rounders. Lots of board games and wine. Quiet time was fab.Julie & Keri from Brecon Beacons - 5th August 2016
Luxury accommodation in stunning views. Local walk and local beach. You don't need to get the car out it's all on the doorstep.Lucy from Worcestershire - 29th July 2016
Relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings with an amazing view. Local beach is very niceEmma from North West England - 24th June 2016
Lovely family holiday to allow our family to enjoy some time together to relax, have fun and catch up.
Recomendations: Fresh & The Dining Room in Abersoch, Zinc for lunch & drinks, Porth Ceiriad beach a favourite of mine (best kept secret!). Walk the beaches, explore and make sure that even when its drizzly & raining that you go out.... the weather changes depending on where you are!Lucy from North Yorkshire - 17th June 2016
Extended family get together to celebrate an 80th birthday. Family age ranged from 10 to 80 and also brought along the dogs - there was something for everyone. Fantastic open plan kitchen / dining area meant that the whole family could spend lots of time together. Everything was perfect. Make sure you check out the great beaches at Abersoch.Family from Stafford - 2nd May 2016
Absolutely amazing place to stay.
Had everything we needed. Walk west from the house along the coastal path...amazing! Morfa Nefyn, Porth Colman and Whistling Sands worth a visit. everything went smoothly. Great service from Best of Wales.Steve from York - 19th April 2016
Exceptionally high standard property that exceeded our expectations.
Great location for family get together. The games room was an added bonus. Stunning views of the bay and beautiful sunrises. We walked along Aberdaron beach which was lovely. The surrounding roads are steep and narrow but this enables the cottage to benefit from the stunning views.Mrs Green - 20th March 2016
Plas y Mor was exceptional in every way, and certainly had the Wow factor.
It lived up to all expectations and more We spent a large part of the day in Aberdaron, the nearest large village. We walked along the beach, had tea and cake in the café, and eat out in the evening. We also walked up Uwchmynydd, and looked out over to Bardsey Island. We had booked to cross, but it was too windy, so that's on the agenda for next timeFriends from Bangor - 16th March 2016
It was superb in everyway. We were not disappointed by the property in any way.Fay and Family - 6th January 2016
