  • "Your page stated that there was a four poster bed."

    There was not. Also your e mail stated before we went that we needed to take sheets and towels, no we did not. Before we left found and old pair of rolled up dirty socks in the single bedroom. The lighting very poor in living room found it very dark. Dining room smelt very fusty.

  • "Great mix of original features and modern facilities."

    Stunning fireplace. Very comfortable beds and having breakfast in the dining room was lovely start to the day . We had a lovely welcome from the owner and nice touch to have a plate of Welsh cakes waiting in the kitchen. Had a lovely holiday here and good base for this part of Wales. Highly recommended. Diolch yn fawr.

  • "Hands down one of our most favourite holiday destinations, says a lot when it’s our first time in Wales."

    The cottage was a home away from home, somewhere we could relax and switch off from everyday problems. Location was perfect and we managed to squeeze so much into just 5 days! Already looking at going back. Our hosts were so welcoming, couldn’t have been kinder

    Hendy Cottage ticks every box for us. Very comfortable, clean and well equiped. It's a short commute to the airfield and we are always made to feel most welcome. We will be back again in 2023!

    Hendy cottage is in a beautiful location with wonderful views over the Irish Sea. The cottage is on a working farm with nice outdoor space to the front but no enclosed garden area. All bedrooms look out over the sea which is great. The cottage is comfortable and has all you need. Thanks for a lovely week.

    Excellent location for the beaches and a sea view .. our hosts were very accommodating, my husband was concerned about his low profile tyres on the track to the cottage as there were some pot holes, they rectified it immediately filling the holes overnight, Tom and Alfie the farms dogs were really friendly and made friends with our beagle. Really enjoyed our stay would book again . Thank you

  • "This cottage is spacious for 4 people, was clean and quite comfortable."

    The owner was very helpful on arrival. The views are gorgeous, especially the sunsets. Our only criticism is that the lounge can be a bit cold and draughty (a ‘sausage’ to put by the lounge door would help). This was a great base for exploring the area.

    Arrived on 21st March for a little break with my friend as we work for the nhs and with the current circumstances needed a break. This cottage is perfect for relaxing. We will definitely be back once the uk is back to normal. This is a working farm and the owners dogs are fabulous. Mr and Mrs Williams are very helpful and friendly. I can’t recommend this cottage enough. Five stars.

    Hendy Cottage was brilliant, sea view from our bedroom window, comfortable furnishings, best equipped kitchen i have ever seen in a holiday home. The dogs came to visit when we sat outside in the sunshine enjoying the views. We walked to some local waterfalls from the cottage and to the village pub so nice things to do and see without even getting in the car. will book again.

  • "The cottage was cosy and was just what we wanted."

    The gas ‘wood burner’ stove and beautiful inglenook fireplace was a real bonus. The surroundings were lovely and quiet and the children enjoyed the freedom of being able to go outside unsupervised and soon made friends with the friendly farm dogs. Mrs Williams, the owner, was friendly and accommodating. The only downside was the access track up to the cottage which was very rough and full of pot holes, otherwise we had a very happy time.

The property

Llanbedr 1 mile.

A beautifully renovated 18th century Victorian detached, double-fronted farm cottage located on the owner’s 200-acre Welsh working farm, sitting in a slightly elevated position, one mile from the village of Llanbedr.

Situated with its own private seating area with the owner's property 30 metres behind, this cottage is nestled between the dramatic backdrop of the Rhinog Mountain range and the wonderful views of the sands of Shell Island, Artro Estuary and Bardsey Island and out across Cardigan Bay.

This cottage is an ideal base for exploring this beautiful coastline of North Wales and the Snowdonia National Park and is perfect for couples, friends and families who enjoy holidaying together.

On your arrival don’t be at all surprised if you’re met by the owner’s gorgeous dogs, Alfie and Del who are a real hit with the kids.

This delightful cottage, lovingly renovated and restored offers an extremely warm Welsh welcome.

The charm and character is in abundance, with ledge and brace doors with wrought iron furniture, exposed beams, stone and slate-flagged flooring and a central oak panelled staircase as you enter the property.

The sitting room has plenty of comfortable seating and boasts an impressive inglenook fireplace with gas woodburning-effect stove.

The well-proportioned dining room is a lovely place to sit as a family and enjoy a late supper or a more leisurely breakfast before setting out on a day’s adventure.

The dairy towards the rear of the property has been converted into a well-equipped kitchen with the original slate floor, and the utility room still has the original slate worktop where the milk would have been kept cool all those years ago!

There is more oak panelling upstairs together with three wonderful bedrooms; all have wonderfully deep window sills offering seating where you can sit and drink in those wonderful views, be inspired or finish that book you started.

The main bedroom benefits from having a double bed and it also boasts the original bedroom fireplace and high ceilings with beams.

The family bathroom has the added luxury of a roll-top bath and a separate shower which completes this wonderful cottage.

Outside there is a raised seating area with table and chairs, perfect for alfresco dining or if you simply want to sit and enjoy the wonderful panoramic views with a glass of something cold.

The pretty little village of Llanbedr is a mile down the road where there are two pubs, a village shop and local butcher’s shop.

There are some amazing walks from the door and Cwm Nantcol, Cwm Bychan and the Roman Steps are all close by.

The beaches along this stretch of the North Wales coastline are beautiful with miles and miles of sandy shores and there are many cycling trails (cycle hire is available in the village) to enjoy.

There is so much to see and do here and something for all the family.

This location is great and everything is within easy reach and the area also boasts good golf courses, medieval castles such as Harlech Castle just three miles away and the Snowdonia National Park.

This cottage is an ideal base at any time of the year and you will want to return time and time again.

About the location


Harlech 3 miles; Barmouth 8 miles.

The pretty village of Llanbedr quietly nestles in ancient woodland between The Rhinogs, part of the Snowdonia Mountains, and the stunning golden beaches of the North Wales coastline. Situated next to the beautiful River Artro, and boasting a mild climate due to its unusual positioning behind the high dunes of a nature reserve, this charming village has an exciting array of wildlife and birds, handy local shops, bike hire and mountain walks on your doorstep, as well as two excellent pubs. The small town of Harlech is just 3 miles away and boasts the World Heritage Site of Harlech Castle, a majestic 13th century stronghold, the most impressive of all those 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 and the most magnificent six-mile long sandy beach, perfect for wonderful walks and family fun. Nearby Barmouth offers the amazing Panorama Walk along the beautiful Mawddach Estuary, providing breathtaking vistas, which were described by John Ruskin as “the most sublime view in Europe” and also a harbour from which you can catch 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.
