Within the hotel grounds there is a sheltered heated outdoor swimming pool which is open from the Spring Bank Holiday until mid September. There is also a tennis court within a  well tended series of gardens.

From the front door of the hotel you can walk to the beach in five minutes and from the front of the hotel you can now walk up onto the Welsh Coastal Foot Path in no more than ten minutes. For those who want adventure the Llyn Peninsular offers a multitude of activities to suite all tastes.  Abersoch offers fantastic beaches, internationally recognised sailing waters, surfing, breath taking scenery, a number of annual events and a pleasant climate.


Walking

Walking

For those who like to take in the views, the Llyn Peninsular offers the perfect opportunity to stretch those legs. The Wales Coastal Footpath was formally opened in May 2012. Wales is the first country to have a formal trail right round its coast and you can get onto a stretch right in front of the hotel. For further information go to www.walescoastpath.govb.uk. Great walks do not stop with the coastal path. We also recommend the walks up to great historic Celtic hill forts like Tre'r Ceiri and Garn Fadryn.
