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.

Llyn Gwynant at the foot of Snowdon

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.

Location

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.

    We really enjoyed our week at the cottage, everything was spotless & very comfortable. The cottage is done to a very high standard & we will certainly be going back. The welcome goodies were very much appreciated too,thank you. We picked the hottest week of the year which all helped to make it an amazing weeks holiday in a beautiful area. I have already recommended the cottage to my sister & brother in law & they have booked a week in September.

    A very well appointed cottage in a beautiful location. The furnishing and fittings were all of a very high standard.

    Cooking with an Aga was a novelty but we soon adapted and came to like it immensely.

    My only slight downside comment is due to personal preference.
    The bed is wonderfully soft and yielding – however I (and my back) prefer a firmer mattress.

    That aside, we loved the place.

    We were really impressed with the high standard and comfort of the accommodation. The farm setting is lovely and the owners were friendly. Great area to explore – unspoilt beaches and fantastic mountain scenery. This was a cycling and walking holiday for us and we were lucky to have great weather.

  4. Theresa Hector says:

    A stunning cottage, absolutely beautiful, 5 star, I could go on like this for ages !!! Cosy and comfortable, with everything you need. Owners are lovely, we didn’t want to go home and will definitely be back. Would recommend

    We stayed here from 1 March 2017 for 4 nights.
    The cottage was absolutely lovely, comfortable and very cosy. Living in the busy city of London, this was exactly what we needed. Its quiet, great location, perfect setting and scenery.
    The cottage is a lot more spacious than the pictures show. PERFECT for two people – any more than 2 people may be a squeeze.

    My favorite was the cooker – I’ve never seen or used anything like it and I have to say that it was absolutely fantastic!! The cooker instructions/recommendation really helped and cooked our food perfectly (i’m very tempted to buy one).

    Location is about 50mins from Snowdon mountain (which we trekked up via Miners track).
    Harlech castle is a few minutes down the road from the cottage. There is also local shops, petrol station and restaurants close by so you’re not completely away from civilisation.

    HIGHLY recommend this cottage for those wanting a short, countryside, quiet break.
    For those wanting a stress free and completely relaxed break – this cottage is just perfect.

    Don’t hesitate and book this cottage – its perfect!

    Visited here for a long weekend, the cottage was amazing, very high spec and made our weekend all the more enjoyable, we didn’t want to leave ! The location was great, easy to get to the beach, mountains or near by towns. The views were stunning and the owners were very welcoming. I cannot recommend this cottage enough and we are already planning our next trip back.

    A superb cottage for two, spacious and very comfortable with high quality throughout. We had a lovely few days here and would not hesitate to recommend the cottage.

  10. Karen says:

    Had a lovely relaxing time in such a beautiful cottage. Can’t wait to go again.

  11. Lucy Darling says:

    A really lovely cottage with everything you need for a long weekend escape. Great location for fab beaches and mountains and nice and quiet even though part of working farm. Owners were really friendly and helpful and we will definitely be back. Only thing we couldn’t find in the cottage was a potato masher so that is our only suggestion. Can’t wait to return.

  12. Rebecca Raybould says:

    Such a lovely stay here. We were shocked by how big the cottage was for the money when we stayed in October and it was around 6 mile from Barmouth and 3 mile to Harlech meaning we were conveniently located to go exploring properly!

    Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a romantic break for two for a few days!
