Wales is a land known for its ruggedness and hospitality. And while these qualities may seem contradictory, nowhere are they more in harmony than in this luxury self-catering water mill conversion. Nestled off a country lane amongst the beauty of the Llyn Peninsula, Melin Llyn offers a cosy, retro-chic interior along with an enclosed garden and your very own bar, making it a place of gathering and memories.
Connection by tradition
Decorated with such fixtures as an Italian leather sofa, an original Indian coffee cart, a Chinese-style sideboard, and handmade curtains, Melin Llyn belies the modesty of its traditional Welsh stone exterior. Then there are the personal touches in the bedrooms, such as the industrial-inspired armchair and footrest in the Aberdaron room, the Welsh linen curtains, Welsh wool throws, and designer cushions. Not to mention the table football on the gallery landing. Melin Llyn is truly the epitome of style and cosiness.
And yet, even its exterior is not as simple and rugged as it may first seem. Families and groups of friends will certainly want to dine al fresco around the old refectory table on the patio. And on a star-filled night, pull the cork on a bottle of red and gather around the fire pit or under the roofed bar to truly take in the magnitude of Melin Llyn’s exquisite setting.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
The luxurious, king-size master suite is located on the ground floor and features a beautiful leather-framed mirror and an en-suite shower room. Also on the ground floor is a separate shower room with WC. The four remaining bedrooms and the family bathroom are on the first floor, beginning with the Aberdaron room, which is a king-size room benefiting from an antique brass-and-iron bed frame. Next are the Rhiw and the Meillionydd Rooms, which host two single beds each. The final king-size room is called the Plas Newydd Room, boasting colonial-style furnishings, a luxurious black velvet bed and ottoman.
There is off road parking for up to five cars. We can also provide a high chair and travel cot, but ask that you please request these at the time of booking and that you bring your own cot bedding. If you are interested in booking a beauty therapy and massage treatment during your stay, we would be happy to provide you with more information on request. We welcome two well-behaved dogs at an additional fee of £25 per pet.
Special Note: If your stay is a special occasion, please let us know so that we can make it even more memorable for you. During your stay, guests of Melin Llyn are eligible for a 10% discount at Cwt Tatws, where they will be welcomed with a cake, tea and sea views. Cwt Tatws is a unique shop with an eclectic range of stylish home accessories.

Daloni was friendly and welcoming when we arrived, making us feel comfortable.

Relaxed and just what we needed.
The area is suited to all as everything ie walking beaches towns places of interest are nearby.Family from West Yorkshire - 2nd September 2017
Stunning place. Luxury home-from-home. Perfect location for an escape from day-to-day life with the family. Even though it was a typical winter weekend - weather-wise - the beaches were perfect for the family to play cricket and the dogs to run around. Abersoch and Aberdaron both had flat sands, so can only imagine they are perfect when it comes to a warm summers day!
Everything was great. Thank you Best of Wales and home owner!Stephanie from Shropshire - 14th February 2017
Amazing, fantastic. Lovely beach around, amazing place, very quiet, was perfect.Dariusz from Clevedon - 1st November 2016
A very comfortable house for our party of 9 + dog. It is very well equipped with stylish decor, large bbq and a fire pit in garden, surounded by countryside but not isolated, could go on for ever, great time had by all.
Recommendations: Car needed. Aberdaron well worth a visit, Morfa Nefyn very shelted, nice pub with food.Linda from Powys - 1st October 2016
