About Us

Welcome/ Croeso!


We're Sharon and Vince Mears, we're based in Llithfaen, near Pwllheli on the Llyn Peninsula in beautiful North Wales.

We have poured our heart and soul into refurbishing our former home just across the road from our Soil Asssociation  organic farm, Treddafydd Organic,  where we now live, and we hope you will love it as much as we do and have a wonderful holiday.  We promise to make you very welcome and all feedback will be much appreciated!

There is so much to do here on The Lleyn. It's an ideal base for walking and cycling, close to Snowdonia if you like climbing and exploring. There are castles galore and lots of history to immerse yourself in. It's a Welsh speaking area so you can learn the lingo too! We will be happy to teach you the basics!

Llithfaen is a quiet village with a community run pub and shop where a warm welcome awaits you as well as locally brewed beers and bar food! You will be a lovely walk away from Nant Gwytheryn, the hidden valley, steeped in mystery and legend. Today the Welsh Language Centre is there together with a visitor centre and popular cafe. You can even get married there!

We grow fruit, veg and eggs organically on the farm and are Soil Association certified. We make a fantastic range of organic jams and chutneys which we sell far and wide to farmshops and delis, and around the local food markets and festivals.  You are welcome to come and have a look around, collect some eggs or do some weeding!

Come and stay and we’ll make you very welcome

Helen Begbie ***** 23rd July 2018

Arrived yesterday and we love it here. Pretty cottage in exquisitely peaceful spot with beaches, coves, coastal walks and sunshine. What's not to like about that? And Sharon is so very friendly and helpful.
