Things to do.
The Llyn Peninsula is one of Wales finest Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers the chance to escape the ever increasing hustle and bustle of modern day life. The rolling and often dramatic landscape of Llyn runs down into sweeping sandy beaches, hidden coves and rocky cliffs along a coastline of nearly 100 miles which has a charm unique to this corner of Wales. A walk up one of the hills of Llyn offers spectacular views across Cardigan Bay to the south, Anglesey to the north and even the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland to the west. Plus there's always a cosy pub or tea shop to relax in afterwards!
Below is a list of just a selection of the places to visit in the area during your stay.
There are some 19 sandy beaches along the coast of Llyn, all of which are accessible to families and only one or two require a walk of more than 5 minutes from your car.
Off the beaten track.
One of the main attractions of Llyn is the walking from an easy track with a pram to the more demanding climbs to seek out amazing views.
Rainy Day activities.
The climate is very temperate on Llyn but it can of course rain sometimes. From the Ffestiniog Railway to Anglesey Sea Zoo there are thankfully a lot of options to occupy the kids in the rain these days. Gone are the days of sitting around playing scrabble and waiting for the weather to change! For Children of all ages there Greenwood Forest Park and Anglesey Sea Zoo to visit. For younger children Foel Farm Park, Henblas Parc and Llanystumdwy Rabbit Farm are great fun. Nant Gwrtheyrn Welsh Language Centre and Glynllifon Park offer local culture and art suitable for a sunny or rainy day. Portmeirion Village is also a favourite.
Among the many reasons for visiting Llyn is the high quality of sporting opportunities. There are several stunningly beautiful golf courses,the nearest just 15 minutes drive away. Other sporting activities in the area include Sailing in Pwllheli and Abersoch.
Wakeboarding, canoeing, surfing and windsurfing at Pwllheli and Abersoch. Boat Trips, both pleasure trips and fishing including a day trip to Bardsey Island. Walking, hiking and rock climbing across the Peninsula and in Snowdonia.
Cycling along our network of gorgeous country lanes marked out by ancient hedgerow. Diving at Porth Ysgaden and various other parts of coastline which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest Fishing. There are plenty places either from the rocky shore for black bream and pollack or on the beach for bass and flatfish Horseriding at Llanbedrog on the road to Abersoch. Archery in Llanbedrog.
Wildlife and Bird watching.
If you value watching wildlife, there is a spectacular amount to see and do in the immediate area around Tan Y Llan. By way of illustration, at Morfa Nefyn you are likely to see stonechat, oystercatcher, cormorant, greater black backed gull and grey seal. At Pwllheli you will see grey heron, curlew, snipe, redshank and other waders. Near Aberdaron you might catch sight of fulmar, manx shearwater and chough. At Abersoch you will often see harbour porpoises and bottlenose dolphins. Venture into Snowdonia and witness the majestic sight of the raven and red kite the Osprey in the Glaslyn Valley, which you can witness bringing fish to the nest via a telescope. You can even see puffins at South Stack and the RSPB is about to open its first venture on the Peninsula with a reserve at nearby Trefor. All in all this really is a spectacular place if you enjoy the natural world.
Strongly recommended is a day trip to Bardsey Island (Ynys Enlli). On top of all this, the coastline of Llyn is so well protected, free from trawlers and maintained by the National Trust in part, that you will see an abundance of life in its thousands of rock pools. Make the most of this by walking all or part of the completed Llyn Coastal path, an adventure for which Tan Y Llan provides an idyllic base.
