  • "Our second stay at Caerffynon Bach and cottage was still as gorgeous as ever."

    Spacious, comfortable and warm, and filled with everything you could possibly need. Loved the new Orla Keely bedding. The milk, Welsh cakes, lemon drizzle and flowers were much appreciated. Enjoyed watching the birds on the bird table from the kitchen window and being greeted by the sheep on our return from days out Great base to explore the Snowdonia region. We have already booked our return visit for next year. Fabulous place x

  • "This is a beautiful one bed barn conversion."

    The views were breath taking mountains and sea views all from the lovely kitchen with the added bonus of amazing birds all the time on the bird feeders and the sheep so white never seen sheep so clean :) . The property was so homely, with a warm welcoming feel to it and so peaceful. The Welsh cakes, cake and flowers were a amazing little extra touch that made the stay lovely. Can't wait to go back.

  • "Beautiful property surrounded by hills and a view of open ocean."

    If you are looking for peace and tranquility in a beautiful part of North Wales Caerffynon Bach should be at the top of your list. Spotlessly clean, very tastefully decorated and equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Plenty to see and do in the area plus beautiful walks right on your doorstep. Highly recommended and would definitely visit again in future.

  • "The popularity of this cottage is well deserved."

    Quiet, peaceful, thoughtfully and comfortably furnished with views of both mountains and sea. Sitting on the terrace for a drink or a coffee was gorgeous and even the window over the kitchen sink had a view to die for. The local shop(2miles down the road) has a first class butcher and anything else you might need. The walks in the area are beautiful with the added interest of stone and bronze age burial sites. My only doubt about recommending it is that it may not be available if we want to book again!

  • "What a lovely comfortable cottage!"

    Beautiful scenery very peaceful and everything we could need. All we needed for our weeks stay was provided by the owner. Unfortunately the weather was poor but the accommodation made up for it. We have visited the area many times self catering and this cottage is the nicest one we have stayed in. Cake on arrival milk in the fridge much needed after a long journey. Shower was incredible the bed extremely comfortable. We will definitely book again! Perfect!

  • "Lovely cottage in a lovely location."

    Very friendly family that own it. A couple of miles from the main road and you will need a car to reach it. Lots of sheep in the neighbouring fields, plus ducks and wild rabbits. Lovely rural setting. Local beach is excellent and plenty of good places to eat and drink within a short drive. Really enjoyed our stay and will probably return.

  • "We both really enjoyed our stay."

    The cottage was lovely and so luxurious, finished to such a high standard inside and out. The garden was so tidy and well maintained, it was so peaceful and the views of the hills to the east and the sea to the west were beautiful. The kitchen was fantastically well equipped and it was a pleasure cooking in it. We loved the decor in the living room which was so cosy. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was one of the best I've used. The owners were lovely, a lot of work has been put into this cottage and it shows - a real gem. Nearby we visited Llanfair slate caverns, which was great, there is also the world's steepest street nearby in Harlech, which has a lovely ice cream shop next to the castle. Benar beach and Barmouth beach are nearby which were both nice sandy beaches where you can see some lovely sunsets. Barmouth itself is great for a day out, with plenty of great shops for a bit of shopping. Shell island campsite is also only 15 minutes away which offers so much entertainment and exploration, it's great that you can enter as a day tripper if you are only visiting. Zip World Fforest is under an hour away too, we really enjoyed the forest coaster. Snowdon is also not too far away, and boat trips are run from Barmouth when in season. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay at Caerfynnon Bach. Lovely cottage in a great location.

    The cottage is in the most idyllic location surrounded by fields full of baby lambs with the sea and the mountains in the background. An ideal base to explore Snowdonia. Both the mountains and coastline are stunning. Hosts are welcoming and friendly. Cottage is well equipped - everything was just as it looked on the website. Would definitely recommend- have booked our return visit already!

    It would have helped me to have instructions for the electric oven as I have gas at home. The hob was gas, but hobs are easier to work out. Countryside was beautiful with long narrow lanes with views round every corner and sheep and lambs everywhere.

The property

Set on the outskirts of Dyffryn Ardudwy, a countryside village in Gwynedd on a working farm, is this stone-fronted, single-storey cottage, Caerffynon Bach.

Nestled away from the hustle and bustle, Caerffynon Bach is the perfect escape for a couple looking for a romantic break among the Welsh hills; the cottage sleeps two guests and is an adult-only property.

Travelling down the country lane, beyond the neighbouring sheep, make use of the private driveway, whilst taking in the breath-taking views and stillness that surrounds your new abode.

Entering the open-plan living space, be wowed by the traditionally renovated interior, with exposed stone walls, vaulted ceilings, and preserved beams; prepare a home-cooked meal in the well-equipped kitchen, warm up in front of the gas effect log burner, or simply enjoy each other’s company over your favourite film.

To the front of the cottage, you will arrive at an enclosed garden, fully remote and enveloped by rolling hills, stone walls, original pigsties and the tranquillity of the countryside; enjoy alfresco dining, a morning coffee, or a late-night tipple with your loved one in this secluded setting.

As sleep calls, venture to the king-size bedroom, continuing through the homely interior, with vaulted ceilings, Velux windows and wooden furniture; relax in bed with the TV on as a backdrop.

The cottage is completed with a contemporary walk-in shower room, finished with sleek fixtures and a light-up mirror, perfect for getting ready before a day of exploration.

Caerffynon Bach is encircled by a range of walking trails, including the renowned Rhingos route up Yr Wyddfa (Snowdonia) Mountain, whilst there are an array of seaside villages and towns to also visit, just a short car journey away.

For relaxing days at the beach, travel to Morfa Bychan, enjoy the uninterrupted stretch of Harlech Beach, or opt for a stroll down Barmouth Pier.

For a taste of history, tour Criccieth Castle, take in the grandeur of Harlech Castle, or enjoy an adventure to Portmeirion Lighthouse.

Llanfair Slate Caverns, Portmeirion Village, Nantcol Waterfalls and New Precipice Walk are all on your doorstep, popular hidden gems to enjoy as a couple.

Retreat to the countryside for a romantic getaway by choosing Caerffynon Bach as your Gwynedd abode.

About the location


Harlech 5 miles; Barmouth 5 miles.

The pleasant village of Dyffryn Ardudwy quietly nestles between The Rhinogs, part of the Yr Wyddfa (Snowdonia) Mountains, and the stunning golden beaches of the North Wales coastline. The unusual positioning of this charming village results in it having its own mild climate, as well as offering good local shops and pubs. The surrounding area has an exciting array of wildlife and birds including soaring buzzards. The small town of Harlech is just 4 miles away, dominated by its majestic 13th century castle which is a World Heritage Site, and the most impressive of all the castles built in North Wales by Edward I. Popular with golfers due to its famous Royal St. David's course, Harlech also boasts an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants. Nearby Barmouth offers an amazing Panorama Walk with breathtaking views and also a harbour from which you can enjoy a ferry to Fairbourne for a ride on the miniature railway or a boat trip out to sea to try mackerel fishing. With the delights of Snowdonia National Park and beautiful Cardigan Bay to discover, this is a fantastic holiday location at any time of the year.
