Moel Yr Wyn Bed and Breakfast in Rhiw
The Moel Yr Wyn bed and breakfast is located within the historic village of Rhiw close to the coastal towns of Abersoch (7.5 miles) and Aberdaron (3 miles) on the Llyn Peninsula.
Many of our guests are walking or cycling part of the Welsh Coastal Path, an 870-mile route that runs along the entire coastline of the country but there are shorter routes that you can enjoy in a day, or even a morning.
We’ve rounded up just a few of our favourite things to do in the area, but you can always ask us for recommendations or ideas once you arrive at Moel Yr Wyn Bed and Breakfast.
Explore Rhiw village
Step out of the front door and start to explore the immediate surroundings of Rhiw itself. Learn about the history that can be traced back through Celtic times to the Stone and Iron age, or decide for yourself whether the myth of the Lady in White or the Rhiw Tylwyth Teg (fairies) are true or not.
The National Trust House & Gardens Plas yn Rhiw is an early 17th-century manor house and is a short distance from Moel Yr Wyn Bed & Breakfast.
Just 3 miles from Moel Yr Wyn Bed and Breakfast lies Aberdaron, a quaint coastal town with plenty to keep you busy. Why not rent a bicycle from Llyn Cycle Hire and make your way along the Welsh Coastal Path for a few hours? Or you could stay indoors and visit the new National Trust Visitors Centre and immerse yourself in the history of this beautiful fishing village.
You can also take a day trip to Bardsey Island during the summer months, or see the Manganese mine works at Porth Ysgo.
Our position on the coast of the Llŷn Peninsula means there are lots of beautiful beaches to explore. Porth Neigwl (Hellsmouth) is just one mile away and ideal for surfers, while Porth Ysgo is a small hidden gem of a beach, also just one mile away.
We also love Porth Oer (Whistling Sands), which is just six miles away from our Bed and Breakfast in Rhiw.
Eating and drinking
We offer a full bed and breakfast at Moel Yr Wyn Bed and Breakfast in Rhiw, but there are plenty of fantastic cafes, restaurants and pubs just 3 miles away in neighbouring Aberdaron to try for lunch and dinner.
Dine on the seafront of Aberdaron at Gwesty Ty Newydd where the restaurant overlooks the beach and the pub area has a pool table, darts and satellite TV to watch the sports.
Or try The Ship, a traditional pub and restaurant with delicious food including award-winning lobster and crab freshly caught from the seafront.
Just 7 miles away from our Bed and Breakfast in Rhiw lies Abersoch where you could sample what’s on offer at St Tudwal’s Inn or The Veynon pub, which is renowned for its great beers.
For something a little different you could dine at the Coconut Kitchen on the harbour in Abersoch, booking is highly recommended – call 01758 712 250 to make your reservation.
“We fell in love with the spectacular views, tranquil atmosphere and location within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We wanted to make the most of this lovely, historic building to create a welcoming B&B where guests could relax on a weekend away, or wind down after walking or cycling in the local area.”- Kevin and Christine Davies, Owners of Moel Yr Wyn B&B
