Hen-Stabal is a two bedroom holiday cottage near Harlech in North Wales. This stone built annex is in a great location. Walking distance from the beach and within easy access of the surrounding mountains and just a couple of miles south of the famous castle town.
The accommodation has been arranged so that the living area is on the first floor and the bedrooms are on the ground floor. The two bedrooms are downstairs, but lets start upstairs first. A big open plan space here, with a high vaulted ceiling and golden wood flooring. A small but well equipped kitchen occupies the southern end of the room and comes complete with an electric oven and hob, microwave and fitted units.
A small raised partition separates the kitchen from the dining area. Here we have a lovely big solid wood table with matching chairs and long seating bench. A modern flat screen TV and DVD player sits next to an oak bureau, while on the other side of the room, a large L-shaped sofa sits in front of a fantastic wood burner.
Downstairs the bedrooms are small but perfectly formed. A double bed in one bedroom and a set of bunk beds in the other bedroom. The bathroom has a large bath with shower over plus WC and washbasin. The décor is simple but elegant and the location and thick stones walls ensures a peaceful nights sleep.

Hen-Stabal is 2 miles south of Harlech, famous for its castle, men of Harlech and the film Zulu of course. But it’s a surprisingly small little town. Cottages cling on to the hills that rise up from the bay below and surround a crowded crossroads of narrow streets. There’s a small collection of shops, pubs and restaurants to choose from, but a short 20 minute drive will take you to the larger towns of Porthmadog and Barmouth if you need more choice.
There are many walking options from the house itself. And I would recommend exploring less known locations like Cwm Bychan and Moel Ysgafarnogod before heading off to the much busier peaks of Snowdon and Cader-Idris some 30 minutes to the north and south respectively.
Llandanwg beach nearby is one of my favourite beaches in the area. Easily accessible and lots of parking. The beach has the benefit of a small cafe and ice cream parlour so a great spot in the summer, but again, a winter break away from the crowds is also recommended.
