Llandecwyn is a scattered rural hamlet in North Wales, which stands amidst farmland, hills with lakes and mountains, which are all perfect for scenic walks and mountain biking. Llandecwyn is set on the National Cycle Route 8, plus birdwatching can be enjoyed on the red kite waymarked trail, which passes through the hamlet. There are also birdwatching opportunities along the coast and at the RSPB Osprey project, which is nearby. Only 5 miles away is historic Harlech, which is situated in a magnificent position between the mountains and the sea. Harlech is dominated by its majestic 13th century castle, which enjoys World Heritage status. The town is very popular with golfers, who come to enjoy the famous Royal St. David's course, whilst the beautiful 6 mile long sandy beach is wonderful for family fun and long walks. Harlech offers an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants and a leisure centre, whilst the whole of the Snowdonia National Park, together with the sandy beaches of Cardigan Bay, are all within easy reach. Other attractions in the area include the Ffestiniog Railway and Welsh Highland Light Railway, the secluded beaches at Borth y Guest and the Black Rock sands and the Italianate village of Portmeirion. A really beautiful part of North Wales.

Previous visitors' comments about Hen Gapel:
It was a beautiful secluded cottage. A lovely family home where we felt very comfortable indeed with lovely quirky rooms. Fantastic views of the mountains and so peaceful. We would love to go back again and will recommend to our friends!

We loved everything about this cottage. The location was superb, away from everything. We saw lots of birds and even a squirrel came everyday. The surrounding area is fantastic with lots of beautiful places to visit. We would defiantly come back here.
Mrs Docker, Dartford, October 2012
We had a fabulous time at Hen Gapel, the facilities at the cottage were excellent making a rainy day indoors great fun. Beautiful scenery and spectacular walks from the doorstep, outstanding.
Mrs Perkins, Stoke-on-Trent, September 2012
A truly amazing get away from it all holiday, where your only traffic is the sheep. A stunning property in the most idyllic surroundings. Everyone in our party found a special place to relax and soak up the atmosphere of this wonderful retreat. One fish was caught by a novice and several bathed in the lake which was a huge bonus. We shall definitely re-visit.
