  • "Wonderful little cottage in a peaceful country setting."

    It has everything you could ask for while on holiday. The bed was extremely comfortable set on the ground floor with a bathroom ensuite. The main living area upstairs was welcoming with reclining chairs fully fitted kitchen area and dining table. The goodies laid out on the table hand cooked by Jane,the owner, was a lovely touch. A lovely little hideaway set in peaceful surroundings well worth a second visit

    Jane met us on our arrival and had baked some wonderful cakes for us which was a real treat. The cottage was clean, comfortable, well-equipped and warm. A great base for exploring the whole area. We would definitely stay here again.

    A beautiful cottage in foothills of snowdonia and a few minutes drive from Anglesey. Location was perfect. The cottage is well equipped and immaculate. It is very comfortable and well supplied with what you need for your stay. Jane, the owner, is on hand if you need anything and provides a very warm welcome with her wonderful bakes! Thanks Jane they were delicious and very much appreciated. The dogs were welcome too and thoroughly enjoyed their stay too. Thank you very much

  • "We arrived (after a long journey from the northeast) around 4 pm."

    Mrs Pierce was there to greet us, and she provided a nice selection of baked goodies to enjoy with our tea. Her Welshcakes are excellent! Hafod is one of four cottages (the farm also does B&B). Downstairs double bedroom and bathroom, newly stairs to upper floor with lounge/kitchen/dining area. Property well appointed: fridge/freezer, dish washer (although we didn't use), lots of kitchen and dining accessories, washing machine and tumble dryer downstairs. All towels and tea towels provided. Good WiFi connection. Ty Mawr Farm is a great location to explore coast, Anglesey, Llyn Peninsula and Snowdonia. Not far from anywhere! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Hafod (or one of the other cottages) for visitors wanting to explore North Wales. Lots of attractions- we spent time at National Trust and Cadw properties, and to RSP at South Stack. Despite the poor forecasts, the weather was great.

  • "Havod, was exactly as expected."

    A perfect upside down holiday cottage for two. Situated around a courtyard of 4 cottages on a working farm you were surrounded by perfect peace and tranquility. Couple that with the wonderful mountains we were loving it. Jane was amazing. She had furnished the dining table with delicious home made goodies on our arrival. She was always on hand for any questions we had. Such a lovely lady. The comfort in the cottage was fabulous. We slept like logs in the sumptuous beds. There is a really decent sized shower and a bubble bath. The upstairs kitchen and lounge were extremely well equipped and comfortable. We had a wonderful holiday and are aiming to return with our family . Thank you Jane

  • "We had a wonderful few days staying at Hafod."

    Jane, the owner, welcomed us (with cake specially made to meet our dietary needs) and the cottage was warm, comfortable and very well equipped, including the little things like washing up liquid and kitchen roll, that are sometimes not provided. There was space for the dogs to relieve themselves and outside stairs to the upper floor so our old dog didn't have to negotiate the spiral staircase. The only very little niggle was that the armchairs, described as recliners, no longer reclined! A really good self-catering cottage that I would recommend to anyone. Thankyou, Jane!

  • "Felt at home as soon as we walked in."

    There were home made cakes waiting for us when we arrived, which were very welcome as we hadn't eaten all day. Superb location for getting everywhere for exploring and walking. Jane, our host, was welcoming, her door was always open. She went out of her way one morning by giving us a lift to Bangor bus station so we could get the bus to Llandudno after our car got locked in the local shopping centre car park. We had a fabulous holiday and only wished we could have stayed two weeks rather than one. Highly recommended.

  • "As an elderly couple, we found that there were some issues with the cottage which in our mind should be addressed."

    1. A non slip rubber mat should be provided for the bath. 2. A support handle should be fitted to assist in getting in and out of the bath. 3. Suggest that the entrance to the cottage should be updated by fitting small windows to allow fresh air into the sleeping area. 4. The fridge/freezer door needs attention. Where the rubber seal of the door engages with the fridge contact becomes unattached after a short period of time due to overheating of the door sill. Potential fire hazard. We did not see the caretaker/owner before our departure to pass on our findings, we would be grateful if you could do this on our behalf. Many thanks.

Was the perfect couples retreat!
