Area – The cottage is part of an ancient rural community, where the Welsh language and traditions are still very much alive. Local people are warm and welcoming, and the landscape is a patchwork of small working farms, with sheep in abundance. Our closest neighbour sells fish, crab and lobster from her door.

One of the attractions of Ty’n Rhyd is a small ‘hidden’ cove, Porth Ysgo, which is mainly enjoyed by locals and ‘people in the know’.  It is just a short walk across the fields to the rear of the cottage and past the duck pond.

This landscape is very deservedly a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and a walk from the cottage up to the nearby hamlet of Rhiw will reward you with quite breathtaking views of the entire westerly tip of the Peninsula.

Weather – The sea dominates this area, and the fresh sea air leaves the visitor feeling fresh and alive.  Locals and weather observers claim the Peninsula has a micro-climate with milder, sunnier and warmer weather than the rest of North Wales. The seasons seem more forgiving here, with early spring lambs poking their heads through the fence beside the cottage, and flora and fauna thriving in abundance here.
