This holiday is designed to allow walkers to enjoy the fabulous scenery of the Lleyn Coastal Path and enjoy warm Welsh hospitality while still remaining on a budget. The accommodation used is basic but comfortable and friendly. Rooms typically do not have private bathrooms. This tour makes partial use of customers own transport so having a car is essential.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrive at the Llys Olwen Guest House in Morfa Nefyn. This is a friendly family run B&B where you will be given a warm Welsh welcome for your stay of three nights. The rooms here are not en suite. You are only a short walk from a beautiful beach and there are a number of interesting pubs and restaurants in the area for your evening meal.

Day 2: After breakfast we will ask you to follow us in your own car, parking at the end point of the day’s walk in Llithfaen. We take you on in our minibus to the start of the walk at Clynnog Fawr church. This was the traditional assembly point for medieval pilgrims making the journey to Bardsey Island whose footsteps you follow. The first section of the walk takes you over high moors at Bwlch Mawr and on to the Rivals Inn at Llanaelhaearn (lunch option) and then up an interesting ascent of the Yr Eifl range spectacular Iron Age fort of Tre’r Ceiri and back to your car at Llithfaen. Distance 12 miles.

Day 3: We take you back to Llithfaen to follow the Lleyn Coastal Path route, including the Nant Gwrtheyrn Heritage Centre, the town of Nefyn and the famous pub on the beach at Porth Dinllaen before walking back to the Guest House. Distance 10 miles.

Day 4: You walk directly from the guest house to meet up with the coastal path following this south-west along the coast until you reach Porth Towyn heading inland until you reach Tudweiliog where you can stop for lunch at the Lion Hotel. You can then catch the local bus back to Morfa Nefyn to pick up your car so that you can drive to your new accommodation at Pennant Farm on the outskirts of Aberdaron. You will be away from the busy centre of the village, but still within easy walking distance of the pubs and cafes, which have good options for evening meals. Distance 8 miles or more if you wish.

Day 5: After breakfast park your car at the National Trust Car Park at Porth Oer and we will take you on to Porth Towyn from where you can follow the path along rocky coves and sandy beaches to your car. Distance 10 miles.

Day 6: After breakfast we will return you to Oer from where you will follow the coastal path all the way around the headland to Aberdaron itself. This section provides magnificent views from the hills at the tip of the peninsula, both south-west to Bardsey Island and north-east along almost the entire length of the route. It’s a great opportunity to see just how far you’ve come! Once you reach Aberdaron, pop in for a well deserved cup of tea at our office. Distance 10 miles.

Day 7: walk to Porth Meudwy not far from Aberdaron and take the Enlli ferry across to Bardsey Island. This is a beautiful place, full of wildlife and steeped in history. Visitors have three hours to explore before returning to the mainland. The cost is £28 per person. You will return circa 3:30 pm and can then set off for home. Alternatively there are beautiful walks along the south coast, the NT house Plas y Rhiw, or the delights of Snowdonia to visit.
