On the north coast of the Llyn Peninsula, a thin ribbon of land curves outwards into the Irish Sea. This is Porthdinllaen, an old Welsh seaside village on the north-west coast. If anywhere deserves to be called postcard-perfect, this is it! Originally a fishing port, Porthdinllaen has only a handful of houses, all of them just a metre or two from the bay’s clear waters. These days its owned by the National Trust, and is a popular spot for an afternoon in the sun.

But it’s not just a pretty picture – Porthdinllaen also has its fair share of exciting history! There are remains of an iron age fort on the headland, no doubt a strategic position with its sheltered bay and views across the Irish Sea. In the 19th century, Porthdinllaen was almost chosen as the port on the route to Ireland, but it lost out to the Port of Holyhead in Anglesey. This might’ve felt like a blow to the people of Porthdinllaen, but it was probably a blessing in disguise – it wouldn’t be half as idyllic here with ferries going back and forth all day.

This design shows the fishing village from above the Ty Coch Inn, with the hills of Yr Eifl rising up across the bay. Children play in the sand with their buckets; someone is flying a kite – a beautiful scene to enjoy as you dry the dishes!

Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 19in x 28in (48cm x 70cm),. Machine wash at 40 degrees max. We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.
