Aberdaron

Land’s end at its most idyllic. This fishing village was the last stop for pilgrims on the way to Ynys Enlli, the ‘Isle of 20,000 Saints’ otherwise known as Bardsey Island, now a National Nature Reserve renowned internationally for its birdlife.

Celebrated poet RS Thomas lived in a cottage within the beautiful grounds of Plas yn Rhiw, a small National Trust manor house. Call into the National Trust’s new interpretation centre, Porth y Swnt, for an insight into Llŷn’s special landscapes, seascapes and rich cultural heritage. And be prepared to get blown away by the awesome coastal views from Mynydd Mawr headland.
