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.

    This is a superb cottage fitted out to an exceptionally high standard. The Aga was a joy to use and the cottage was warm and cosy with a very comfortable couch. The warmth and comfort was just what was needed with the torrential rain we had. There are 2 points that need looking at though-
    The rug in the living area is on the beautiful wood floor without a non slip backing so it moves and this resulted in me falling. We rolled the mat up to prevent further accidents.
    The other point that needs looking at is the WiFi. The signal is very very weak. I managed to get the SMART Tv to connect to the WiFi but the with such a weak signal nothing would come down. All our devices kept loosing connection and the signal doesn’t reach the bedroom. This may not be a problem for most people and the rest of the cottage is just so good anyone who stays here will have a superb time in a stunningly well converted building.

    Lovely cottage very clean and welcoming. The welcome pack was much appreciated. Plenty places to visit near by. Only fault we found was directions from Barmouth to the cottage were not very clear, we past the turning twice. Would highly recommend anyone staying here

  3. Dave and Jan Brimelow says:

    This cottage ticks all the boxes for us. Lovely people and Snowdonia has to be seen to be believed.

  4. Lisa Bass says:

    Wonderful cottage with great views of the sea and mountains. Gegin Faeldre is a beautiful cottage decorated with great attention to detail. The Aga was easy to use and made an interesting challenge. The cottage is one of the best I have stayed in with quality furnishings and equipment. Highly recommend this place for a relaxing and peaceful holiday.

    A lovely and well equipped cottage. Even better in real life than in the photos! The view across the fields and out to the bay is stunning. We had a fab stay here (despite the weather) and enjoyed climbing Cader Idris. I miss the AGA and the puppies already!

    My only suggestion would be to include a guest book in the cottage as it is nice to leave a note for the owners to thank them for a wonderful stay, but also good reading previous guests’ recommendations of walks and restaurants etc.

    This was our fourth booking through Dioni and the standard of accommodation has been faultless every time.

    A lovely weeks stay, weather fantastic which always helps.
    Everything you could want in a cottage and enjoyed cooking on an aga.
    Spectacular views from the front door and outdoor seating area, but not from windows(just to be aware). But that said, we didnt spend much time indoors as fantastic walks in the hills behind and ice creams on the beaches as the sun goes down.

  7. DB & JB says:

    Last week was our second stay this year which just about says it all.

  8. David McKenna says:

    Super stay in super cottage in super location with super weather! What could be better?
    First class accommodation…beautifully designed and fully functional.

    If you want to go to this area, this is the place to stay!

  9. Andy & Ceinwen says:

    A lovely presented cottage, ideal for 2, great location with easy access to either beach or mountain walks.

    Diolch yn fawr

    Great Cottage
    Another wonderful week spent at the cottage, again love the range. Thank you

  11. David Brimelow says:

    A very special place. A beautiful, cleverly decorated cottage which, owing to the weather, we were so pleased to return to each day.

    The cottage was in the right area for us and was well connected to the main roads.

    We absolutely loved it and we will definitely want to come back when we are next holidaying in the area

    Highly recommended

    Thank you very much for the stay in this cosy and beautiful cottage:) We enjoyed a lot and felt like at home. Cooking with AGA was an experience itself. My boyfriend fell in love with… the shower and I enjoyed sitting on the big windowsill reading my book. The views were amazing. That wooden bench outside is a very good spot to appreciate them.
    Just one suggestion…when it´s dark it´s quite easy to miss the turn driving from Harlech(north), maybe one more sign indicating the turn from this direction would be a good idea.

    Diolch o galon!
