One Bedroom Cottage on a Working Welsh Farm | Gegin-Faeldre | Dioni

One Bedroom Cottage on a Working Welsh Farm | Gegin-Faeldre

This pretty one bedroom cottage on a working welsh farm is a great base for couples wanting to explore the mountains and coast of Snowdonia. This beautifully appointed and private annex to the main farmhouse offers luxurious accommodation whilst providing a taste of idyllic rural life. But don’t worry, the owners wont make you get up at the crack of dawn to feed the sheep. Unless you really want to of course.

We enter the cottage through a private front door to the north of the main farmhouse into a large entrance hall. A convenient ground floor wc with washbasin sits behind a lovely oak ledge and brace door right in front, but we turn left to enter the living room.

A big open plan space where the living room to the right is seperated by a rail and breakfast bar from the larger kitchen diner area. A large leather sofa and coffee table sits in front of a large wall mounted flat screen TV. A big Georgian style window in the wall fills this space with a lovely light from outside.

The richly coloured and warm oak floor stretches back through into the kitchen area. Here, a lovingly restored and original Aga cooking range takes pride of place. More modern kitchen units stretch out to the left and ensures that all the expected modern day appliances are also accommodated. A small round dining table and pastel coloured moulded plastic chairs sit on the rear wall.

An oak banister and carpeted stairs leads us up to the double bedroom above. Here, a relaxing king sized bed sits under the eaves of the cottage. Exposed beams and a section of the original stone wall provides a sense of character and place; a large Velux window ensures that plenty of light floods the room each morning.

The adjoining bathroom adds the wow factor to this accommodation. A huge double shower with matching white porcelain bathroom set rests on a plush blue-slate floor. A large wall mirror behind the sink finishes the room off nicely.

Great views of the Cambrian coastline and the Llyn Peninsula beyond are afforded from the private courtyard and small lawned area right in front of the cottage. A neighbouring small outhouse provides plenty of storage for bikes and kayaks etc as the provided BBQ.

Llanbedr is the nearest village about a mile to the north. There are a couple of pubs here as well as a cafe and small grocery store. More choice is offered if you travel a little further up the coast to Harlech. The famous castle dominates this pretty little town and is an obvious draw for many guests.

About 5 miles to the south, Barmouth is that quintessential Victorian seaside town with a fantastic mix of smiling kids, fish and chips and acres of clean sandy beach. These days, the huge array of adventure activities on offer in the area draws just as many people as the beautiful sandy coastline. Everything from mountain biking, zip lining, gorge walking and rock climbing are all available. Although a quiet walk in the mountains behind the farmhouse is still my favourite.

    it was a joy to come into a cottage that was warm and welcoming after a day in the hills. It was quality accommodation at an affordable price.

  2. Martin says:

    We were lucky to be able to stay for a week at Gegin Faeldre in mid October, just before the government re instated the lockdown. The accommodation was well designed, refurbished to a high standard, peaceful, quiet and very clean. With underfloor heating and the Aga, it was warm and cosy too. The farm is in a perfect location for taking walks or cycle rides into the nearby hills and it’s also close to the Mawddach trail. We even had mainly dry weather, so we could be out most days. We had a lovely time.

  3. Nia says:

    We enjoyed a relaxing week at this cottage. It has been beautifully renovated to a high standard and has a lovely distant view out onto the water from the garden. It was spotlessly clean and the owners were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again!

  4. Sarah says:

    Just returned from a lovely 2 night stay at this cottage and couldn’t recommend highly enough. Absolutely spotless and lots of thought given to extra safety precautions due to Covid. The area is stunning and even though we’ve been visiting for over 40 years I’m still in awe of the scenery. Where the mountains meet the beaches, a little slice of heaven!

  5. Debbie Harrison says:

    Every thing was lovely, well equipped accommodation with quality furnishings. Thank you we really enjoyed it

  6. Richard Johns says:

    We had a wonderful week in a beautiful cottage. It was spotlessly clean and a welcome place to return to after days out walking the fantastic countryside and coast. It was our first visit to the area and we didn’t want to leave. Friendly owners and quality accommodation. We will definitely be back.

    We had a lovely weekend in spite of the rain in your cosy,and stylish barn.We were able to visit portmeirion in the few dry hours we had,and a short walk around Dolgellau on Sunday.We missed the sign on the road,and were also not sure if we were at the right property there should be another sign by the arrow for the car park.The Aga was lovely ,but I wouldn’t want it on in a hot summers day. .It is a lovely area and I wouldn’t hesitate to book with Dioni again,as all the properties we have stayed in are all superior standard

    We have just returned from a lovely weekend in your cosy and stylish cottage.We a lot of rain,but managed to visit Portmeirion,and had a walk on Sunday with a bit of rain.The aga was good,but I don’t know if I would like it on a hot summer day.I agree there should be a more obvious sign on the road as we missed it twice,and I also like to look at the visitors book to see where others have visited.We had a fabulous break with beautiful views,and would love to stay again if we come to barmouth
