82 GIMBLET ROCK
Morning coffee on the patio doesn’t get much better. Sit yourself down and enjoy the views across Cardigan Bay to the Snowdonia mountain range while watching the dolphins* swim by. It’s not a bad start to a day. Dolphins can't be quaranteed.
Our holiday home at Gimblet Rock, Pwllheli is the perfect place to relax and take time out and if you like sea views they don’t come much better with an uninterrupted vista across Cardigan bay without moving from the sofa (so that’s the rainy day activity sorted). Pwllheli Marina couldn’t be closer so if there’s nothing else going on sit back and observe the boats coming and going from one of the finest yachting facilities in Western Britain.
Gimblet Rock 5* holiday park in Pwllheli is part of the Haulfryn group and offers everything you need to relax and switch off. If you want nightly entertainment, kid’s clubs and every minute of your day filled with planned activities this is not the park for you. Gimblet Rock is perfect for those that want beautiful views, a beach on your doorstep and a great location to get easily around the beautiful Llyn Peninsula. On site you’ll find a well maintained pool and sauna, fitness suite for those that want it, children’s indoor and outdoor play area and a friendly café bar. Activities are planned for special events and during school holidays, any planned events can be viewed on Haulfryns Gimblet Rock facebook page.
Once you’ve dragged yourself away from the sea view, walk out of the park and you’ll find yourself on the blue flag ‘South beach’ and if you like a walk you can take yourself the 3 miles along the beach which is part of the 81 miles of the Llyn Peninsula coastal walk to Llanbedrog, or a few miles further will bring you to the popular destination of Abersoch. Alternatively, a short walk from the park along the beach will take you to the promenade and an easy walk into Pwllheli town where you’ll find a small amusement park, supermarkets, restaurants, coffeeshops and the fish and chip shop. Two shops definitely worth a visit are Pysgod Llyn, the local fishmonger who sells an amazing selection of fresh fish with it’s in-house deli and it’s definitely worth a visit to the local Spar, it’s like no spar you would’ve gone to before with freshly squeezed juice, 28 day hung beef cut on site and fresh lobster! Market day in the square is Wednesdays and Sundays throughout the summer.
Everything on the Llyn Pennisular is easily accessible from the unofficial capital Pwllheli. It’s just 7 miles by car to Abersoch and just a 20-minute drive to Morfa Nefyn on the North side where you’ll find the bar “Plas Coch”, officially one of the top 10 beach bars in the world, or head to Aberdaron to go to the beach that literally whistles as you walk. Gimblet Rock doesn’t just give you access to the most beautiful coastline and beaches you’ll also find it a great location to access Snowdonia National Park and destinations such as Zipworld or Surf Snowdonia to name just a few
Your accomodation for your stay is perfectly laid out to enjoy the breath-taking views whatever the weather. On sunny days sit out on the deck and cook and eat alfresco, sadly as we can’t book the weather you can be toasty warm in the centrally heated holiday home enjoying the sea views from the comfort of the sofa, the kitchen and dining area when the weather is less favourable.
The holiday home is fully equipped to be a home from home with full size cooker, dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer and washing machine, TV & DVD player. Away from the main living area you’ll find a double bedroom, two twin bedrooms, a bathroom with a full-size shower/WC and a further separate WC. This holiday home and its views make full use of the living space so please note that the double and two twin bedrooms are not vast but are extremely comfortable and all provide storage/wardrobes, perfect for a family get away.
Outside you'll find parking for 3 cars, a large deck area to the rear of the caravan with fantastic views of the sea and a lower decked area which provides some shelter from the wind.
