A warm welcome awaits you at 'TERFYN' a small family run bed and breakfast in Morfa Nefyn, North Wales. The house is situated at the end of Morfa Nefyn a small and quiet fishing village on the Lleyn Peninsula.
Morfa Nefyn and Porthdinllaen beaches are only a short walk away. Both beaches almost merge into one, with only a short path passing behind three of the few cottages on the beach separating them. Swimming, sailing and fishing are just some of the activities that take place on the beach.
But for those who just want to relax and have a drink you can always visit the 'Ty Coch Pub' or just sunbathe on the golden sand at lifeboat bay. Lifeboat bay means just that, as this is where the local lifeboat station is based. For those who love to watch the seals and dolphins, this is just the spot.
Above the beach is 'Nefyn Golf Club' one of the most popular golf courses in Britain, it boasts of beautiful sea and mountain views which can be seen from all 26 holes. The club was formed in 1907 and has grown in size and popularity since.
Being on the edge of wales puts 'TERFYN' bed and breakfast in a good position to visit all beaches such as 'Porth Colmon', 'Porth Ysgaden' and 'Porth Oer' (Whistling Sands). The sand at 'Porth Oer' really does whistle as you drag your feet along it. These are only a handful of beaches that you will find along the Lleyn peninsula.
But for those who prefer walking, the LLyn Peninsula is just right for you. With coastal walks such as the 'Old Pilgrims' walk, which starts from 'Clynnog Fawr' and ends with a crossing to 'Ynys Enlli' (Bardsey Island) where 20,000 saints are buried. A walk not to be missed is to the top of 'Yr Eifl' (The Rivals) mountain which reaches up to 564m at the peak. From the peak you have breath taking views of Pen LLeyn (LLeyn Peninsula), Snowdonia, Cambrian coastline, Anglesey and on a really clear day you can see the 'Wicklow' mountains in Ireland.
'Tre'r Ceiri' is probably the next most popular mountain to visit, situated next to 'Yr Eifl' there is an ancient iron age fort at the peak. 'Tre'r Ceiri' is linked to the Vortigern legends, Vortigern is said to have been the one to disastrously invite the Anglo Saxons in the 5th century to Britain.
Visiting 'Nant Gwrtheyrn' (Vortigern's valley) should not be missed, once a very busy port carrying granite sets to places like Liverpool. Today a very busy welsh language centre, opened in 1982 is situated here, with a cafe where you can quench your thirst before heading back to the top and returning to 'TERFYN'.
Other places of interest such as 'Pwllheli' (7miles away) a busy market town, 'Abersoch' (great sea activites), 'Caernarfon' castle, 'Porthmadog', 'Portmerion' (Italian village) and 'Anglesey' are all within a quarter to an hours drive away. These are only a few of the attractions that are close by.

We hope that you will enjoy your stay at 'TERFYN' bed and breakfast.
