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.

    We loved staying here over Easter; a homely, warm, comfortable, spotlessly clean cottage to come back to every evening. The cottage has everything we needed for a family holiday and stunning views from the bedrooms and sitting room.
    Having stayed in the farm-house when I was younger, it was lovely to be here again and just as magical.
    Thank you Helen and Edward for making us so welcome – we had an amazing holiday.

  2. Pat & Tony Bailey says:

Thanks again Helen for the lovely cake surprise and the fresh flowers – nice touch! Best Wishes to Ed trust all goes well and hope to see you later in the year.

  3. Elinor Baker says:

    We thoroughly enjoyed our second stay at this very comfortable, warm cottage. Thank you, Helen, for the delicious cake – lovely to come back to after a walk in the hills.
    We would definitely recommend Llanfair Cottage – a beautiful location.

  4. Jungkind says:

    Wonderful stay at this cottage. Even the weather was not always the best, one could easily just sit in the cosy chairs and look through the huge window, seeing the cows passing by the trees bending in the wind,…. The cottage is well equipped, spacy, well located. Helen is very helpful and caring if needed, her cake just yummmi!
    The nearby beach is the best in the area, Harlech itself a nice little village. You can easily reach all the important points to visit in north wales, so don’t hesitate to book!

    We have just spent five very enjoyable days at this exceptional cottage. It is very comfortable,warm, well equiped and clean but what makes it really special are the wonderful views of the mountains and the sea and also the total peace and quiet. Helen is very friendly and welcoming (a delicious sponge awaited us) but also very respectful of her guests’ privacy. Highly recommended.

    We had a lovely stay at Llanfair cottage. A lovely welcome with a gorgeous CHOCOLATE cake from Helen (our favourite!) and a relaxing break away. We had chronic weather but even then, we enjoyed many of the lovely walks around the region and it was nice to return to the cosy cottage to warm up and take in the views. Thanks very much, we hope to return one day to make the most of the beautiful surroundings in better weather.

  9. Derren says:

    We had a wonderful week relaxing on the farm. The cottage has great views to the sea whilst being surrounded by the mountains. Helen was the most welcoming host and made a delicious cake for our arrival. The cottage was lovely and comfortable, peaceful, and a short drive to nearby Harlech and the beach.
    We would recommend to anyone and hope to stay again sometime in the future ourselves.

  10. We were made to feel very welcome by owner Helen table set for tea and a delicious homemade cake. the cottage was very comfortable and spotless. Views are spectacular and so peaceful. We had a wonderful holiday

  11. Fran and Rich says:

    We had such a lovely holiday. The cottage is in an amazing location, so peaceful and with spectacular views. We were lucky to have a couple of warm evenings when we could sit out on the patio with a drink and enjoy the views and surroundings. The great thing about the cottage is that even when the weather isn’t up to sitting outside you can sit in the living room and admire the view through the big french windows. The cottage was very comfortable and warm (despite it being June we did need the heating on a few times and we found it to be very efficient). There was plenty of hot water for a relaxing bath after a long day walking. We would definitely recommend a holiday here and we hope to return one day ourselves too.

  12. Mark, Birgit and Michael says:

    We were welcomed into the cottage by Helen to a table laid for tea and a well recieved home made cake.
    one of the positives of self catering in Llanfair cottage is that no matter how challenging the day say walking to the summit of Snowdon as we did on one day or rambling around the headland of the llyn Peninsula east of Aberdaron an another you know although tired that you are returning to a warm inviting, clean, well appointed and delightful Llanfair cottage.
    The short drive to the cottage from the road along a tarmac lane through the sheep strewn field bordered by dry stoned walls of glacial boulders is a delight. My companions coming from the environs of the city of Stuttgart had their city sapped batteries charged to the full again at Llanfair
    so thanks to everyone involved. Mark Birgit and Michael
