Historical Connection

Aberdaron Holidays is located between the villages of Rhiw and Aberdaron on the Llŷn Peninsula, and has far reaching views over Cardigan Bay, Snowdonia and Ireland on clear days.

Aberdaron is closely associated with Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island), with daily trips from Porth Meudwy (Fisherman's Cove), in the summer when the weather is favourable. You can enjoy a meal at Y Gegin Fawr, where the pilgrims used to stay before crossing to Bardsey.

There is evidence of early settlement in the area, including hill forts, cromlechs and a Stone Age Axe Factory.

The ancient Church of Saint Hywyn is almost on the beach in Aberdaron, and is open daily. The famous poet and nationalist, R. S. Thomas was vicar here for a number of years, and when he retired he lived in a cottage above Hell's Mouth, near Plas yn Rhiw.

The newly opened National Trust Interpretation Centre in Aberdaron offers an insight into the environmental, historical and cultural history of the area.
