    “The farmhouse is in a wonderful location, albeit up a narrow track from the main road.”

    Views perfect on every side. The house was welcoming & clean. And it had everything we could think of... We really tried hard to find something it didn't have but we failed! ...

    Views perfect on every side. The house was welcoming & clean. And it had everything we could think of... We really tried hard to find something it didn't have but we failed! It is roomy & cosy at the same time - there are coat hooks in the utility which is a perfect drying room and just off the hall from the back door. The woodburners work well & the kitchen is big enough to cook, eat, plan trips and play cards while looking across at the mountains & appreciating the woodburner! Garden is enclosed & the two dogs enjoyed the space (front and back) while looking through the fence at the sheep. Outdoor BBQ works well & garden table & chairs v comfy & in the sun before midday. All in all a wonderful location & accommodation for a restful & restorative family break (5 adults & 2 hounds). Just superb.

The property

Harlech 3.2 miles.

A truly exceptional base for your exploration of the coast and countryside of Wales, Cefn Gwyn promises to be the ultimate holiday home for a relaxing retreat with your loved ones.

Encompassed by exceptional views and sitting in a remote location within the Snowdonia National Park, this countryside cottage is one you'll be sure to want to return to.

Warm up in the winter months by cosying up beside the woodburning stove in the sitting room, the family gathered together for a relaxing evening in, while in the summer months, the enclosed garden makes the perfect space to enjoy the fresh countryside air with the barbecue offering alfresco dining options.

For more formal occasions, take a seat at the dining table in the kitchen/diner while toasting to a wonderful holiday, the aromas of your favourite foods filling the room as they simmer on the hob; this room is sure to be the hub of your holiday with plenty of space for all to unwind next to the second stove of the house.

Seek comfort in one of four fabulous bedrooms at the end of each day; on the ground floor you will find a charming room with a daybed, conveniently doubling up as a space for the little ones to relax too, while on the first floor rests two king-size rooms and also a twin, all presenting tasteful neutral tones as well as beautiful views to wake up to each morning.

Start your day with the option of the bathroom or ground-floor shower room, both spacious spots letting you prepare for your day in style and luxury before heading out to explore Wales.

The local area of Ynys is extremely idyllic, with the property benefiting from sitting on the coastal footpath so you can take a stroll to explore this beautiful area before getting in the car and taking a scenic drive to nearby Harlech; famed for its imposing 13th century castle, here you can find a selection of shops and eateries, as well as it being a popular destination with avid golfers with the Royal St. David's course being here, or for family time together, spend a day on the golden sands of the beach where you'll be sure to make everlasting memories.

Be sure to make the most of your desirable location within the Snowdonia National Park, with Mount Snowdon being worth tackling for its rewarding views at the top, you can even take the mountain railway to the top to see the sights from a different angle.

In the best position for a relaxing escape to Wales, Cefn Gwyn is a marvellous choice for your next countryside retreat.

About the location


Barmouth 11 miles; Porthmadog 10 miles.

Situated in a magnificent position between the mountains and the sea, the delightful small town of Harlech is dominated by its majestic 13th century castle. Harlech Castle is recognised as the most impressive of all those built in North Wales by Edward I and has World Heritage status. The town is very popular with golfers, who come to enjoy the famous Royal St. Davids course, whilst the beautiful sandy beach is wonderful for family fun and long walks. Harlech offers an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants, whilst the whole of the Snowdonia National Park, together with the sandy beaches of Cardigan Bay, are all within easy reach.
