About the property

Beach Bungalow on Aberdesach Beach near Caernarfon, Lleyn Peninsula, North Wales - Situated Right On The Beach In A Peaceful Location

The spacious detached bungalow is ideal as a retreat for couples or families wishing to enjoy a traditional beach holiday. Because of its unique beach location cars are parked on Aberdesach Green, which is overlooked by other properties, and access is gained over a small footbridge and 140m along the beach. Niwl-y-Mynydd is one of 16 properties in this quiet yet not isolated holiday paradise. A well-behaved dog is welcome. The pebbly beach starts some 10 m from the front door with beautiful sands and rock pools at low tide. For many years 60% of our bookings have come from previous visitors who enjoy this wonderful setting.

About Caroline & Tony Regan

We live in Birmingham, England and have two grown-up sons and three grandchildren and we all visit several times per year. The bungalow has been owned by our family for over 70 years. During that time it has been extensively modernised whilst retaining some of its original character. We never tire of visiting!

Caroline & Tony Regan purchased this bungalow in 1950

Stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday in this bungalow on the beach. You are a few steps away from the shoreline and the amazing wildlife that brings. The bungalow is clean, welcoming, cozy and very spacious and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. There are fabulous places to visit close by; the beach bar Ty Coch at Morfa Nefyn is a must and Caernarfon and Bangor worth a trip. The Llyn Peninsula is beautiful. Thank you Caroline and Tony for letting us stay in your lovely home; we hope to return soon. William and Oscar send love and licks for their brilliant walks on the beach and coastal path xx

Stayed in this beautiful place for a week at New Year. Flooding everywhere on the way down from Lancashire. But what a stay we had, the weather was awful, wind and incessant rain for the first few days, watching the storms roll in across the sea was unbelievable. The kids loved it, the bungalow was so cosy and warm throughout, everything you could need for a relaxing break is provided. Lovely comfy beds with excellent duvets, fantastic large shower room with underfloor heating, a large kitchen where us adults sat for hours chatting. The view from the lounge cannot be beaten. New Year's Eve the weather broke the skies cleared and the stars came out, millions of them. The beach is rocky, but the walk towards the big rock is superb.

Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful beach bungalow, we will be back.

The Great Escape!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Niwl y Mynydd! Yet again, the cottage was clean and well maintained to a high standard. Kitchen and bathroom facilities are modern and spacious. The lounge and bedrooms have a perfect sea view. The location is idyllic - just meters away from the beach, ideal if you are in need of a peaceful getaway. Plenty of country walks nearby, perfect for hikers and dog walkers alike!

The owners are friendly and helpful and care that you have a good holiday.

Steve and Bron, Llysfaen

The property is right on the beach and is ideal for families as no cars are allowed on the beach which means children can play safely, however, young children should be supervised at all times. With the sea right on the doorstep, swimming and fishing can be enjoyed and young children will love searching for crabs in the rock pools. Seals and porpoises are regularly seen swimming across the bay and there is an abundance of interesting bird life and flora.
