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.

Beautiful property, everything you needed was there. Very comfortable beds, lots of seating areas. Decorated really uniquely a lot of thought has gone into the property. The area it was in was perfect for exploring the top end of the Peninsula we didn’t have far to drive to a lot of the beaches. Would definitely recommend staying here l didn’t want to come home.

Miss S,

Hen Felin is a spacious, well-equipped cottage in a quiet position only 10-15 minutes drive from several beaches. Modern kitchen with lots of glassware and crockery. Sunny garden not overlooked. Very clean on arrival, owner easily reached for enquiries. Would definitely stay there again.
