Holiday cottage near Harlech | Llanfair-Cottage

It’s quite a new build so all the essentials are well taken care of. Efficient central heating, unlimited hot water, a fully fitted kitchen and spotlessly clean throughout. The lounge is comfortably furnished and include a traditional and handsome welsh dresser and I’m sure most guests will spend a lot of time with the large patio doors thrown open so as to make the most of the view. The cottage looks out onto the northern slopes of Moelfre and the Rhinog mountain range which stretch out towards Barmouth and the Mawddach Estuary. And cow watching is much more fun than people watching.

There’s separate dining area which sits five or more quite comfortably. The adjoining kitchen is quite small but it has everything you’d need including a dishwasher and washing machine. There’s a large bathroom with shower over bath. One twin bedroom room and finally, a large family bedroom with king sized bed and an extra single bed if required. Opening the curtains in this south facing bedroom every morning is sure to be one of your favorite bits of the holiday.

I say this about a lot of our cottages. But the location really couldn’t be much better. The cottage sits above the pretty little seaside village of Llanfair on the Cambrian coast. You climb up a small lane out of the village before winding your way back down a private driveway to the farm. The nearest beach, Llandanwg, is one of our favorites, with its little rock pools to one side and sandy dunes on the other. The historic castle town of Harlech is about 2 miles to the north. There are three or four pubs in the town as well as a selection of restaurants. There’s also the castle of course and the famous St David’s links golf course. If you decide to stay, you must also find the time to drive a little further up the lane to Cwm Bychan and the magical lake up there. It’s a beautiful spot and offers some fantastic wild trout fishing. Other popular activities in the area include mountain biking and walking of course.

    My wife and I have just had a most enjoyable eight day stay at Llanfair Cottage and we have to say it was the most relaxing break we have had anywhere and further more peace and quiet abounds.A much appreciated bonus was just the very best April weather seen in many a long year.
    Helen is one of life’s very genuinely helpful people and made us very welcome from the outset adding that if we required any assistance we must not hesitate to ask.
    A very nice surprise on our arrival was Helen’s delicious chocolate cake waiting for us on the table – just the ticket to have a slice (or two!) with our first cup of tea.
    We will return to Llanfair for another relaxing break where peace and quiet achieves another level.

    I have to say what an excellent place to stay from start to finish. Helen met us at the property, she had already put the heating on for us and left us a delicious homemade cake that we all loved. Property was like a home from home, everything you needed, very comfortable and a stunning location. Best of all Helen has just posted me my daughters cuddly toy that she had left in the property. 5*****. Will definitely stay again.

  3. Bob Smith says:

    We spent three nights here in early October, the weather was changeable but the cottage was lovely and cosy and had just about everything we needed. Excellent location, peaceful and away from it all. Would definitely stay here again 🙂

  4. Brian Toulcher Huddersfield says:

    1st visit to cottage (not to wales though) it was like home from home an absolute credit to Helen, we had a small hiccup with heating but was dealt with without fuss. Helen is very welcoming and so easy to get on with you feel like you’re a friend . You do need transport but if able to go walking there are ample walks from the door. the views are breathtaking we shall certainly return and would have no hesitation in recommending both the cottage and Dioni.

    Thanks for great holiday

    Second visit , and again first class , ideal location to get around and visit other parts of the area, cafe on the beach 5mins away to chillax with a coffee or two.

    Home from home everything you need is here plus the added bonus of the views

    Looking foreward to 2014

  6. Derek Williams Pontypool says:

    This is a very pleasant specious bungalow with many of the necessary odds and ends needed for a holiday. We really enjoyed our stay here and the friendliness of the people at the farm. Would recommended it to anyone who has their own transport.. My grand daughter loved the cat and was overjoyed when she came for a walk with us all the way up the lane and back.

    Diolch yn fawr.

    I have just returned from a week in this cottage, it was so peaceful, beautiful and a really relaxing break (even with a 1 year old!). Despite the mixed weather we found plenty to do – day trip to Llanberis to visit the Slate Museum and take the Llanberis lake railway train ride (climbing Snowdon we left for next time), Farm Park nearby which our toddler really enjoyed, walking in Coed Y Brenin, exploring Harlech Castle, beautiful walks from out of the front door… and we were very lucky to have three gorgeous lambs at the farm who we could help to feed! However for the times that we just wanted to relax inside the cottage was warm and cosy, and the views are lovely down to the sea. Helen and her family were all amazing, and we very much hope that we’ll be able to return soon!

  8. Phil,Mandy and Harrison, Shropshire says:

    This cottage and its location is a gem, the views are to die for , The beach is only minutes away, if you want 5 star accomadation and a 5 star location this is the one , I shall not be telling anyone about this cottage so it remains a secret , will be back in July and beyond, amazing.

    lovely spacious, well furnished, warm cottage. Well equipped kitchen and lots hot water. Beautiful veiws of sea and surrouding countryside. Very satisfied customers!

  10. Joanne, Lancashire says:

    We had a wonderful week at Hengaeau. So peaceful and relaxing, fantastic views & a brilliant cottage for a 5 year old and 1 year old twins to safely run around! Helen gave a warm and friendly welcome, with some very tasty cakes that didn’t last long! The cottage itself is deceptively spacious and has everything you need. The pics don’t do it justice! We will definitely return!

  11. Greg Westwood Derby says:

    The cottage is awesome and you will love your time there, it’s clean and in a great but remote spot.

    Would go back again.

  12. Mandy Iles, Warwickshire says:

    Our first time renting a holiday cottage and what a find! A little piece of Heaven if you like peace and quiet with absolutely stunning views over the countryside and the sea in the distance. We were lucky enough to be able to eat out on the patio a couple of nights and the only sound we could hear was the birdsong. Helen and Edward were splendid hosts, there with tea and cake on arrival and on hand if you needed her for anything. The cottage is equipped with everything you could need and was spotlessly clean. Ideally located for most of the attractions North Wales has to offer within an hour or two travelling by car. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, big thankyou to Helen and Edward and we will hopefully see you again.
