The Caravan is nestled within Bodffordd Smallholding in Rhoshirwaun just a stones throw from the Outstanding and beautiful beach of Whistling Sands (Porthor) and just 2 miles from the picturesque village of Aberdaron.
Aberdaron Village is 2 miles away and boasts two pubs, two cafes,a chip shop,a newsagent, a beautiful church, grocery shop,and an absolutely amazing bakery and beach.
Theres beaches and coves galore here on Pen Llyn from Abersoch to Morfa Nefyn each one as beautiful and spectacular as the last in their own way
In addition there are many breathtaking scenic walks in the area, notably up to Mynydd Mawr with fabulous views of Bardsey Island / Ynys Enlli. (A most spiritual place even for those not religious)
Theres plenty to do in the area coastal walks and surfing - dog friendly beaches too!!! (If you're lucky you catch a glimpse of the dolphins in cardigan bay) Why not venture inland a little and ride a steam train?? Or take a boat trip you never know what you will end up doing here in this magical place
The caravan has a view of the sea from the fabulous deck and a view of the mountain anelog too!!! relaxing on the deck is heaven watching the sun go down on glorious evenings. Theres 2 bedrooms so it sleeps 4 although check with us if you have a baby. We can also provide a travel cot!! Bed linen will be provided for the duration of your stay in our home from home. Dogs are welcome but we must ask they are kept on leads at all times outside of the caravan as we are a smallholding and we do have chickens and ducks and geese roaming around!!!

Stayed for a long weekend with our dog. The caravan is well equipped with all kitchen equipment and includes oven, grill, hob, microwave, kettle and toaster. Full size fridge freezer was a bonus too. All utensils, pots and pans available. The views from the veranda were unbelievable. We watched an amazing sunset looking out towards the sea. There was a tremendous lightening storm whilst we were there and shelley did drop by to warn us. We ended up watching the lightening out over the bay. The caravan is in the middle of nowhere so perfect for seeing stars with no light pollution and the only noise is the cows and sheep in nearby fields. The geese came down to feed of an evening which was nice to see. Caravan is comfortable and very clean. It is quite private and away from the small campsite. As it is a small holding dogs are understandably to stay on a lead. However can be off lead on the veranda when the gate is closed. Across the campsite there is a small fenced off area where you can let your dog off the lead. This should be mentioned on the advert, it's something some people may worry about. We knew we would be out each day so weren't concerned when we read dogs should be on a lead. It was a bonus when we got there and found out about it. Shelley has another business baking and making jam. It all sounded lovely but we had already taken all our food. I think it would be nice to order ahead to have fresh bread when you arrive. I'd recommend adding this to the advert or mention when people book. Caravan is close to some really nice beaches and villages. Just note that some beaches don't allow dogs from May to Oct. Shelley has left plenty of tips on where to go on laminated sheets in the caravan. Ask about the 360 view point. Well worth a visit and Shelley pointed it out from the caravan window. All in all we had an amazing relaxing break. Some lovely quiet evenings on the veranda with a glass of wine watching the sunset and plenty of exploring in the day without travelling too far.

I had a fantastic holiday. The peace and quiet was just what I needed. Sitting on the decking of an evening with a glass of wine looking out at the view which was beautiful and quiet. Just what I needed. Many thanks, would definitely book again next year

Myself and my son who is now eight have stayed here twice now, our first time was last year, both times we have had a wonderful time. Shelly has welcomed us,and made sure that we are happy, and should you need anything is willing to help, the caravan has all that you could wish for for your stay though i admit the TV outfoxed me for a while but my son soon put me right. The peace and quiet is something to experience and the location for exploring is perfect. The caravan is clean and tidy and well appointed perfect.
Mark thanks so much for the lovely review hope to welcome you back once again kindest regards Shelley

what a lovely quiet holiday we had away from noisy people very relaxing. The caravan has lovely views of the countryside with no one overlooking you it was so nice sitting on the decking chilling out. The caravan is comfortable and homely with everything you need in it. When we arrived the owner Shelley met us told us some good places to go and had left some leaflets, walking books and magazines on the area for us to use during our stay also some lovely homemade bread,jam,fresh eggs and flowers which were all lovely. Thanks for a lovely stay.

We booked this Caravan accommodation through UKCarvans4Hire.Com easy to navigate website in the quaint and peaceful hamlet of Aberdaron and were pleasantly surprised and delighted with our accommodation and the surrounding area. We our the type of couple who enjoy privacy and a sense of feeling remote when we go away to take in the locations we visit. We have often failed to find this when we have stayed at other sites and locations, either due to the set-up or their being multiple static caravans occupying the same space. However this wonderful Caravan offered us what we have been looking for, a solo spot not overlooked, with a large outside decking area that was private and overlooking the Welsh countryside. The Caravan itself was extremely well-presented with sizable rooms and a clever efficient layout that was very clean and stocked full of additional items, such as board games, dvd's and a computer X Box console should anyone have children and not wish to venture out if the weather turns. (Although the location of Aberdaron itself often means the bad weather misses it). The holiday owner Shelly and her husband were very accommodating, friendly and left us a lovely welcome pack of delicious homemade bread and bara brith cake. After we checked in, we were not disturbed and it felt as though we were staying in our own private field, which was particularly tranquil in the evening as the sun went down and when we listened transfixed in silence to the rain on another night. The site is situated in an ideal location to access the more glorious remote beaches and coastal paths nearby, or the livelier locations of Abersoch and Pwllheli. The Caravan is also dog friendly, affordably well priced and also allows a stay of 3 x weekend nights or 4 x week nights in addition to the full 7 x nights week. Myself and my wife had a lovely stay of 4 x nights but could have easily stayed the entire week. We both fully recommend this site and will hopefully be back again.
Jules Thank you so much for this lovely review it makes all the difference to us when someone enjoys their stay as much as you both have, we would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for leaving the caravan absolutely immaculate for us and we look forward to you booking again with us in the future! kindest regards Shelley and Neil
