Bright and Spacious Holiday Cottage in Rural Setting | Hafod-Dwyfach

The large and open drive on arrival with uninterrupted views over towards the Snowdonia mountains is so welcoming. The feeling of being in such a beautiful, open and rural setting with the enclosed area of the cottage and its grounds is just perfect.

As you come into the cottage, the open plan kitchen, diner and sitting room with its vaulted ceilings, patio doors and windows make it a really bright and spacious room. The kitchen has high gloss, cream units and a bar area with stools making it a very sociable place to cook and prepare food. The sitting room has plenty of sofa space which will comfortably seat 5 and the addition of the select pieces of wooden furniture add to making this an inviting part of the room.

Along the hall from the kitchen, there are three bedrooms in total; a double, twin and single. The double and twin have ensuite bathrooms and there is also a communal single WC. The bedrooms are all finished with lovely, soft carpet and plump, inviting beds. The bathrooms are modern with slate tiles throughout, wet room style showers and chrome fittings – very boutique hotel feel to them.

The outside space of this cottage is really lovely. The enclosed front area includes a stone driveway, large patio and grassed garden looking out over fields and towards the Snowdonia mountains. The patio is the perfect place to sit back on the outside sofa’s and enjoy the tranquility of where you are.

In terms of location, the cottage is perfectly placed to access so many parts of North Wales, including the Llyn Peninsula, Snowdonia and the North Wales Coast.  The cottage is only 20 mins away from Beddgelert alone which is the closest point from which you can climb Snowdon.

The cottage has easy and direct access to the Lon Eifion cycle path to Caernarfon and it is also on the National Cycle Route 8 and 40.

Porthmadog is the nearest town where there is a good selection of shops, the major supermarkets and lovely cafes as well as the Ffestiniog Steam Train which takes you into the mountains.  A nice harbour which a 15 min walk along will bring you to Borth Y Gest. Portmeirion Village is also just down the road where Festival No6 is held.

Criccieth is 15 mins away and is your nearest beach as well as a lovely, smaller town where you will find great antique shops and a really good selection of cafes and of course the famous Cadwaladers Ice Cream and Dylans restaurant on the seafront. From here you have easy access to Pwllheli with the marina and then onto Abersoch which is a hive of activity and the place to go surfing.

20 mins to the North will bring you to Caernarfon where of course you have the castle and more great beaches and close to Bethesda which is where you will find Zip World. A little further along the coast road  on in Conwy is Surf Snowdonia.

Within an 1 – 1.5 hours, you have access to the best mountain biking trails in the country, the UK’s no 1 place for white water rafting and incredible places to climb, walk, kayak, SUP – so many thinks you can tick off a bucket list here….

    A wonderful stay…..a beautiful barn conversion, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Thank you for the lovely welcome pack.

    What a place! To start with you arrive to a warm spotlessly clean big bright converted barn. The gift pack was lovely… milk,bread,cake,fizz and a gift voucher and as it was Halloween during our stay a pumpkin too. Everything was so well thought through,from the equipment in the kitchen to the space you inhabited. Beds so comfortable,linen good quality,towels thick and bright. Then you open the curtains in the morning to that open view of the mountains in the distance and the farm animals 30 ft from your door. It is no lie when I tell you none of us wanted to leave to come home and that has NEVER happened before. Our only gripe would be the bathroom light is to dull to shave (says my partner!) or apply makeup. We loved it and would definitely recommend it 100% to anyone with young children or who has a disabled person in their group as we have.

  5. First impressions of this cottage – WOW. Absolutely beautiful. Everything was good quality and in beautiful surroundings. Everything very very clean. Welcome pack very welcome. Kitchen well equipped and hob worked without any second guessing (spaghetti Bol on first night). Early morning walks for the dog down the tiny country lanes, and the view from sitting outside on the patio furniture just lovely. Only tiny little oversight was nowhere to get towels dry after showering, as no radiators or heated towel rails. So we draped them over the corners of the shower itself. I would return here to this cottage and recommend it to all my friends. In fact friends visited us here and they were blown away too.
    Our reason for visiting north Wales was to climb Snowdon, and do the Zip wire and caverns. Zip world not cheap, but so well organised we didn’t begrudge them the money, and Snowdon was beautiful. We did Snowdon Ranger route, and the dog also managed easily.
    Our other ‘best day’ was in Anglesey. By accident I found stunning pictures of a lighthouse on google, managed to locate it and off we went. Newborough in Anglesey for the sat nav. Parked in a country park. The beach, the woods, then the walk down to the lighthouses when the tide had gone out was fabulous.
    Eating out with the dog wasn’t easy. Thank goodness for the Goat Inn just up the road. It’s wonderful. We booked a table in the bar, had a wonderful meal from an extensive menu, and went back another twice. That says it all.
    Criccieth was lovely, both sides of the castle lovely walks. At the Prince of Wales pub I had some of the best chips I’ve ever had, and the meal much better than expected, and the takeaway from Mei’s Infusion Foods was good.
    All in all a great week away, weather was superb which always helps enormously of course.

    The cottage was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Lovely peaceful location but not far from the major tourist attractions in the area. Perfect for a family holiday.

  7. The Peacocks says:

  8. michelle thompson says:

    The barn is beautifully converted and has wonderful views. It is very comfortable and well equipped. The owners were extremely helpful and helped us a lot to ensure our youngest daughter, who is in a wheelchair was able to manage.
    We enjoyed a lovely week – thank you
