Bach Wen Holiday Cottages

About Bach Wen


We are situated on the north west coast of Wales, just above the Llŷn Peninsula and south of Caernarfon. 

When driving from the M56 East, at junction 10, take the A4087 exit to Bangor/Caernarfon/A487. At Caernarfon Rd Interchange, take the 1st exit onto Caernarfon Rd/A4087 and at the roundabout, take the 1st exit onto Caernarfon Bypass /A487

Stay on the Caernarfon Bypass /A487 for about 9 miles until 4th Roundabout (Goat), take the 3rd exit onto A499. After a further 6 miles you will come to the village of Clynnog Fawr. Slow down as you see the church on your left (be aware that this is a 60mph road) and after a further 100 yards you will see a red wooden sign ‘Bachwen Holiday Cottages’ on the right hand side in front of a stone wall

Turn right into the splayed stone entrance and follow the narrow lane down towards the sea. Keep driving until the track bends round the right and you have arrived – There is parking on the right or further on past the cottages. Croeso!

You may wish to explore the unique landscape by enjoying one of the many coastal walks (longest coastal walk in the UK is from Clynnog Fawr to Bardsey Point).
