Luxurious Self Catering Accommodation on a Working Farm | Faeldre

Faeldre offers some truly luxurious self catering accommodation on a working farm and only a short drive from the beach. The westernmost corner of this large and historic farmhouse has been recently renovated into a 3 bedroom holiday cottage.

The spectacular sea views from the large picture windows combined with tastful decor, original features and luxurious modern touches creates a perfect base for your Snowdonia holiday.

You enter the cottage through a central porched doorway. The lounge is to the left, the kitchen-diner is to the right. In the lounge, two modern leather sofas sit facing onto a large flat screen TV on a plush new carpet. Whilst in the kitchen-diner the square dining table and chairs sit on a more traditional slate floor. Modern kitchen units house all the essential appliances. The slate flooring continues on into the ground floor bathroom. This includes a nice yet simple suit and a large walk in shower. All the slate flooring in kitchen, bathroom and hallway are heated underfloor – so rest assured you will have a warm and cosy welcome!

A second bathroom can be found on the first floor landing. Again we have a large walk in shower as well as a separate bath. Everything is beautifully tiled is soft subtle shades and includes underfloor heating.

3 bedrooms upstairs. The double bedroom, like everywhere else, is beautifully decorated and has the luxury of a walk in wardrobe. The twin room is in the older part of the house and, as a result, has a lovely high ceiling and a tall grand window, helping guests enjoy that spectacular sea view. The third single bedroom is smaller and should probably be classed as a child’s room although it has a full sized bed.

The cottage is at the end of a private drive leading off the Cambrian coast road half way between Harlech and Barmouth on the western edge of Snowdonia. Llanbedr, the nearest village has a butchers, post office and small grocery shop as well as two pubs serving food. The larger towns of Barmouth and Harlech offer a wider selection of shops and restaurants perhaps and are 10 minutes away by car.

The area’s most obvious draw is the miles of beautifully clean sandy beaches nearby. Many walkers will also naturally head towards Snowdon during their stay, a 35 minute drive to the north. But guests should also take the opportunity to explore the rugged Rhinog mountains which are just behind the cottage.

Other activities within a short car journey include mountain biking at Coed Y Brenin, white water rafting at Tryweryn and pony trekking in Betws Y Coed. Smaller independent activity providers will also take you gorge walking, kite surfing, climbing etc. Two many to mention.

You can’t drive for more than five minutes in this area without passing an ancient burial ground, castle or some sort of historic monument. And our more recent industrial past can be re-lived with trips on narrow gauge steam railways and by exploring underground slate mines.

Or, you could just sit on the patio, read a book, drink a glass of wine and watch the sun go down.

    We had a wonderful stay at Faeldre. It was immaculately clean, well equipped and very well positioned between the amazing beach at Harlech and Barmouth town centre and beach. We especially enjoyed the glorious views from the cottage and being in a quiet and peaceful location with easy access to beautiful walks, lovely beaches and a good number of tourist attractions. If you are considering staying here, we would recommend the cottage without hesitation. Indeed, we expect to return!

  2. Dave Brimelow says:

    Simply great family place to stay, especially after lockdown. I loved it.

  3. Chris L says:

    We had a 3 night stay at the end of October & had a wonderful break.
    The cottage is absolutely lovely, furnished to a high standard, with beautiful views.
    The location is also superb, allowing you to explore the stunning coastline with ease.
    We can’t thank you enough for making us feel so welcome & the cheese, butter & welsh cakes were a real nice touch – enjoyed with a few cups of tea!
    This has definitely been one of our favourite stays in Wales thanks.

  4. Just returned from a fabulous week spent in this beautiful location. The house is absolutely stunning and has everything you could need. Welcome pack on arrival (fresh eggs, welsh butter, cheese and welsh cakes) is a lovely touch and the owners are so welcoming and friendly. Despite the weather being a bit hit and miss we made the most of the area visiting Barmouth, beautiful beaches, the castles in Harlech and Criccieth and the stunning Nantcol Waterfalls. Each day we looked forward to returning to the house and as it felt so relaxing and homely. The ultimate recommendation I could give would be that the husband (who doesn’t really do holidays) had such a great time and enjoyed the location so much that even he didn’t want to come home. An absolute gem and we can’t wait to return. Thank you

    This cottage is the holiday- it’s original features are a delight, the decor is modern and clean and fresh. Each day we looked forward to coming back to a glass of wine on the patio looking out across the farm to the sea. Our children had so much fun playing on the farm. As everyone says the Thomas family are lovely and the welcome pack includes Welsh cheese, butter, Welsh cakes and farm eggs. There is a shared utility room outside of the cottage with washing machine, freezer and iron. We traveled to Llanberis for Snowdon about an hour away but this area is full of great beaches, walks and cycling. We missed out on Coed y Brenin for outdoor activities but did bounce below at zip world. Recommend Corris Craft Centre for kids things to do on a rainy day especially chocolate making but must book all activities in advance. Recommend hiring bikes in Barmouth for easy flat ride over bridge to Fairbourne or walk. Betws-Y-Coed worth a visit. Great holiday, thank you

  6. We enjoyed a lovely week in the cottage. It was very clean and it is equipped to a high standard. The proximity to the mountains and the many beaches in the area make the cottage an ideal location. Our hosts were very friendly and we loved the regular visits from the sheep dog puppies. We plan to return.
    Thank you.

  7. Ruth Thorp says:

    We stayed at Faeldre for 2 weeks during June 2019. What a perfect place to switch off and relax! Beautiful views, with amazing sunsets over the Lleyn Peninsula! Brilliant location for exploring Snowdonia, mountains, rivers and beaches.
    The owners are so friendly and helpful. We had a couple of issues which were very promptly and efficiently sorted out. The cottage is beautifully renovated with all mod cons (showers & kitchen excellent) and some quirky features, like an upstairs stair case to nowhere but a window with a view! I would prefer the freezer to be in the house, rather than in a separate room around the corner, but that’s a minor point really. The sofa suite is possibly a bit soft, but some don’t mind that.
    Thanks for a great place to stay, in a stunning location. Thoroughly recommend.

  8. Becky Nurse says:

    Very beautiful and comfortable cottage. Really peaceful and relaxing. Great location to be able to get too lots of activities. Fabulous holiday in North Wales so much to see and do. Will definitely return soon.

  9. Jan says:

    Had a fabulous stay at Faeldre – the owners were really friendly. The cottage is beautiful with everything you need at hand. Set in a perfect location for going out to neighbouring towns.
    Would definitely recommend a visit here.

  10. Alex Elley says:

    Beautiful well appointed accommodation, well worth the visit.We could not fault it, and would recommend it to others.

  11. Steve Lovick says:

    Lovely stay – great cottage, comfortable, warm and two power showers after a hard days walking. A beautiful quiet location with Harlech and Barmouth a short drive away and some great beaches to enjoy what ever the weather. Thoroughly recommended.

  12. Buswell family says:

    We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Faeldre, where we went as a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids aged 13, 8 & 21 months). Property is beautiful, clean and modern but retains some traditional features to give character and charm. Has all the basics you would need during your stay. We found the beds to be really comfortable and had a great sleep every night! The location is great for exploring North Wales and the views are stunning. It is one of the best self catering cottages we have stayed in, and wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be returning to Faeldre on our next visit to North Wales.
    Also, a big thanks to Donna, who found my son’s soft toy after we had left, and contacted me to tell me, and then sent it back to us in the post the same day! Diolch x
