Cute Stone Cottage in a Quiet Village Location | Bodfan

This cute stone cottage in a quiet village location is a great little hideaway for anyone wanting to explore this part of North Wales. With a pub right on your doorstep and beaches, mountains and outdoor activity providers nearby guests wont be left wanting for things to do.

Rugged Snowdonia

A spacious lounge includes two very comfortable real leather sofas facing onto a fantastic log burner set within the original stone inglenook. Beautifully furnished with some real individual bits and pieces the attention to detail is a welcome break from other more off the shelf holiday accommodation.

The slightly quirky theme continues next door into the kitchen diner. An old pine table surrounded by individual dining chairs sits on a real slate floor. Pastel painted kitchen units are complimented by built in storage cupboards with stripped back pine doors. A great space to put the plan for the day together whilst eating warm toast covered in salted welsh butter.

We return into the lounge to climb the stairs up to the first floor. Two double bedrooms up here. Again, both bedrooms are really nicely put together with traditional welsh bed throws sitting atop thick comfortable duvets on a cast iron bed. Both bedrooms each have a large integral wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside tables. They each share a central bathroom which has a shower over bath arrangement.

Llanystumdwy is a very pretty and friendly little village on the border between the mountains of the Snowdonia Park and the more coastal plains of the Llyn Peninsula. The village is famous as being the birthplace of Lloyd George, the British Prime Minister during the First World War. His childhood home is just down the road from the cottage and a museum commemorating his life is well worth a visit. There’s a great pub serving local food on your doorstep and a stocked fishing river just up the road.

Bodfan is also a great base from which to explore the whole of North Wales. The seaside village of Criccieth is just a 5 minute drive away (and has the best ice cream in the world) and the Snowdonia mountains are only 15 minutes further on. There’s pony trekking, sailing, paintballing, go carting and cross country Segway riding all available within a short distance. The petting farm in nearby Chwilog is our family’s favourite day out (despite the fact that we live on a farm) and should not to be missed. Take a picnic and enjoy the fabulous views as the children play with the newborn lambs.

    Great little cottage. Cosy and comfortable. Has everything you need. Ideally located for exploring the countryside and beaches of the Llyn Peninsula. Would happily stay again.

  2. Phil Hiscott says:

    Great cottage, really well equipped & comfortable. Good quiet location near to where you want to be & road links to other areas. Can’t fault it, thank you we really had a super weeks holiday.

  3. Rebekah Watkins says:

    This is a lovely little village, and reasonably well located for days out. The cottage is located next to the village pub which is a plus, although it has only selective opening times.
    The cottage itself it pleasant and has all the amenities you would expect for the price and we were very happy with it. The mattress is perhaps a little thin but the kitchen is excellently stocked for cooking and baking.
    The log fire was obviously a plus with the chilly weather. Overall it was pretty good value and we would consider staying again.

    A lovely traditional cottage with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing break. The property was very clean and homely and the welcome gift of a bottle of red wine was nice and was enjoyed in front of a roaring real fire. The blankets on the sofas were a useful addition as the property was on the cool side early evening as the heating was timed to kick in later and the room soon heated up with the lovely real fire that my hubby enjoyed pottering with. We found the first night our bedroom was really cold as the radiator was turned off. (Beginning of the chilly weather however being late October) we soon fixed that and the remaining nights were very comfortable. The village itself is well positioned for lots to do locally being opposite the Lloyd George museum and near to the coast, Portmeirion, Snowdon National Park and other lovely places such as Betws y Coed all grind less than an hour’s drive away. Local amenities for food shopping are ten minutes away in Porthmadog and include Aldi, Lidl and numerous take away outlets, eateries for those not wanting to cook. If you do want to cook, the kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need.

    If we holiday in North Wales again we will surely book the cottage for another stay.

    Thank you

    Lovely stay at this fantastic cottage very well equipped & a great base for us to visit our friends in Criccieth

  6. Alasdair Rosie says:

    Excellent last minute find. We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely cottage. Perfect location for exploring the Llyn and Snowdonia national parks. Quiet village with a good long walk from the front door through the local farmland. The cottage was wonderfully cosy and the log burner was very welcome after a day in the elements! Would highly recommend and happily visit again.

  7. Diann Griffiths says:

    We enjoyed a last minute break at Bodfan. After the blustering winds of Storm Ali, we arrived the next day in torrential rains and I was praying the cottage would be warm. We weren’t disappointed, we opened the door and it was toasty, so cosy! We had everything we needed for a short break and the main bedroom has a comfortable bed. The pub, next door, serves good food. The cottage is perfectly situated for an active weekend in Snowdonia and for visiting the many beautiful beaches, castles and tourist attractions that North Wales has to offer. Being from the very North of Wales, not too far, we could see ourselves staying at Bodfan again.
