Your Destination —
Set amongst the rolling hills of the lush Welsh countryside and overlooking sparkling blue sea, this is the ideal base for a coastal holiday. Situated on the edge of Nefyn Bay in an area of outstanding natural beauty, activities are plentiful. Scenic countryside and seaside walks, sandy beaches and secluded coves, whistling sands and cliff-top golf courses - all can be found dotted around this charming area of north Wales.
Tucked away beyond Snowdonia's craggiest peaks, the Llŷn has a distinctive, unspoilt character. The southern coast draws walkers and wakeboarders, whilst the ancient pilgrimage site of Barsey Island is a haven for wildlife. Much of the Llŷn is also listed in the Register of Landscapes of Historic Interest in Wales. The Llŷn's many archaeological and architectural stories tell a fascinating, unbroken story that began in prehistoric times.
Conwy Castle is a UNESCO World Heritage listed castle, built in the late 13th century. Today it competes with Snowdonia's rugged skyline and wins the battle for your attention! With 8 fabulous towers, each commanding breathtaking views across the estuary of the River Conwy and down into Conwy itself, a trip to this magnificent building is rewarding and memorable.
Anglesey. It really isn’t any wonder that over 220 square miles of Anglesey’s unspoilt coast and landscapes have been declared an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Whether you want tranquil green space interspersed with a carpet of colourful flowers, or the unrivalled beauty of the towering cliffs, home to hundreds of nesting seabirds, Anglesey really does think of everyone!
Snowdonia National Park. Wales' best-known and most visited slice of nature became the country's first national park in 1951. Every year more than 350,000 people walk, climb or take the train to the 1085m summit of Snowdon. Yet the park is more than just Snowdon – its 823 sq miles embraces stunning coastline, forests, valleys, rivers, bird-filled estuaries and Wales' biggest natural lake.

- (*shopping points: Caernarfon – you’ll pass a Morrison’s and a Tesco)
- Come off the A487 at the Llanwnda roundabout, taking the 2nd exit onto the A499 (Pwllheli). You will soon have the coast on your right hand side.
- (*fuel stop: the petrol station at Clynnog Fawr, which is by-passed on the A499 is the final one before reaching Natural Retreats).
- Soon you will approach a roundabout on the outskirts of Llanaelhearn. Take the 2nd exit off the A499 onto the B4417, signposted Nefyn.
- Continue up the hill through Llanaelhearn and towards Llithfaen, which is at the top.
- Keep on the road, going back down the hill, for about 1 1⁄2 miles towards Natural Retreats.
- You will find the turning on the right, as you see the sea before you, after a right hand bend at the bottom of the hill. The turning is currently signposted with a black sign, marking St. Beuno’s Church, which shares the same lane.
- There is also a dead end sign at the top of the road. (* the entrance to Natural Retreats is before you enter the village of Pistyll. If you pass the 30mph sign posts, you will need to do a u-turn).
- Once you have turned right, please follow the signs for 'Y Dorlan' (temporary reception building).
