We've just spent 3 nights at The Old Rectory and would thoroughly recommend it. Gary and Lindsay are very welcoming hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. Lindsay is full of information on places to visit and to eat and even photocopied walks from her guide books for us. Our room was lovely; very comfortable, large bed and... More

This was a very comfortable base from which to explore the area. Very friendly hosts and lovely breakfast as well. We could only sample a few of the walking routes and things to do in the few days we had, but our biggest surprise - thanks to the good summer weather - was the number & quality of good beaches....

We found the Old Rectory last year and have just returned from another great weekend. The Old Rectory is a beautiful building in a wonderful setting, and ideally placed for exploring the peninsula or playing golf at Nefyn and Pwlhelli. The rooms are very clean, bright and very comfortable, and the breakfast is a fantastic selection of local produce served... More

We wanted to stay somewhere on the Llyn peninsula that was accessible to both the north and south coasts. This looked nice online and it definitely is. Lindsay and Gary are perfect hosts, very friendly and helpful but not intrusive in any way. They will help you to find a good meal out if necessary, as all the local restaurants... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Old Rectory is situated midway between Pwllheli and Nefyn, opposite Boduan Church. Perfectly located to give you great access to all areas of the Llyn Peninsula. Near to Nefyn, Abersoch & Pwllheli.Whether you are a couple on a short getaway break, or a family with adventure in mind, you are no more than a short drive away to many relaxing and stimulating locations. As you are welcomed into The Old Rectory a spacious hall gives you an idea of the space and comfort offered. Leading off from the hall are the drawing room, dining room and staircase to your rooms, which are tastefully furnished and decorated and feature fine linens and toiletries. The dining room, with views over the garden, catches the morning sun.The beautiful light-filled sitting room, with its magnificent fireplace and outlook over the front and rear gardens, is quiet and relaxing. A log fire adds to the welcome in the cooler months and the decoration, antiques and comfortable furnishing provide a home-from-home atmosphere. Pwllheli, Abersoch, Llanbedrog, Nefyn, Aberdaron, Criccieth, and Porthmadog are but a few of the most popular local towns on the Llyn Peninsula, and all within easy reach.Quiet walks with spectacular scenery lead from the end of the drive. The North and South coasts with sandy beaches and cliff walks are within a five minute drive. The golf courses of Nefyn, Pwllheli, Abersoch, Criccieth and Harlech are all short drive away and we can arrange your reservation for you (often with a discount). In the immediate local area activities such as clay pigeon shooting, shooting, horse riding, water skiing, sailing, windsurfing, wake boarding, boat trips, archery, ten pin bowling, go-karting, quad biking and cycling are available. The railways of Ffestiniog, the Welsh Highland and Mount Snowdon provide wonderful ways to see Snowdonia. Caernarfon, Bangor, Portmerion, Conway, Bodnant Gardens and Anglesey are just some of the places to visit. Out of season have the beaches and roads to yourself. The climate is mild and the Llyn Peninsula has a micro climate that is often drier and sunnier than the forecast shows. ... more   less
