The Llyn Coastal path provides fantastic walking offering amazing varied & spectacular scenery.
The Abersoch Holidays cottage is minutes from the Llyn Coastal path, the route of which passes through hidden coves and beaches, along cliff top paths, through small harbours and towns and at 95 miles long, and taking an average of about seven days in all, the Llyn Coastal Path is just about the best excuse to take a week off work.
The Path which makes its way around The Llyn Peninsula (which recently notched-up 50 years as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), along the north coast to Uwchmynydd, then the southern coast to Porthmadog, goes right around Abersoch and is within easy reach of the cottage at Mur Cwpwl, Abersoch Holidays accommodation.
The Path is partly based on an ancient pilgrimage route to Bardsey Island – a Christian shrine turned National Nature Reserve. And is a great way to brush up on your Welsh history: St Beuno’s Church, St. Beuno’s Well and Clynnog Dolmen standing stones at Clynnog Fawr. Prehistoric hut circles at Tre’r Ceiri hillfort. And to the Northern most part of the path, there is the medieval castle at Caernarfon (a World Heritage Site) and there is yet another one at Criccieth.
For a lesson in natural history, spot the bottle-nosed dolphins and Atlantic grey seals in the coastal waters. And stonechats, goldfinches, and sand martins in the dunes. A major route for migratory birds runs right through the Llyn, too – so you can expect arrivals of redwing, chaffinches, starlings and skylarks in the autumn. The headland at Cilan close to the cottage is also a home for the rare Chough.
