  • "A beautiful historic cottage, very well kept."

    It is in a scenic position with a lovely outdoor seating area - though access is via steep steps. The beams are amazing - but don’t knock your head as I did! Owner is friendly and welcoming. This is a spacious , well- equipped home with great character. Easy access to the coast road and nearby towns.

  • "We had a wonderful time during our holiday."

    It was an absolute joy to stay in Hen Argoed. The old house is beautiful and full of character, it is spacious but very cosy. Being on the farm was lovely- and our hosts were so friendly, but never intrusive. We would highly recommend Hen Argoed and we also hope to return in the future.

  • "Even though the property was listed as pet friendly, dogs where not allowed upstairs, this caused us issues with our dog not wanting to be seperated from us at night in an unfamiliar settting."

    If we had realised this I would not have booked it. I would think other pet owners would feel the same.

  • "We had a happy and relaxing week at Hen Argoed."

    Our hosts were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The house was as comfortable and as beautifully presented as we had hoped and as an unexpected bonus the owners had recently redecorated and improved it, including new kitchen floor, new doors and steps leading directly from the living room to the garden, with a newly laid patio and upgraded garden furniture. The garden is private and peaceful, tucked away from the rest of the farm and properties/campsite (besides the cows grazing quietly in the next-door field) and with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. Even though a number of places were closed due to coronavirus, there was plenty to do within a short driving distance, including sandy beaches and dunes, mountain biking, walking, pony trekking and ZipWorld. A great property in a beautiful area. Thank you

  • "We had a fabulous week staying at Hen Argoed cottage."

    All precautions had been taken in light of the Covid pandemic and we felt safe and secure at the cottage. The cottage had all the amenities required for a family with children. We enjoyed exploring the countryside and the quiet beach only a 10 minute walk away, tourist sites further afield and even a rainy day watching films was lovely in front of the fire! The owners are very friendly and available for advice/assistance when required. Local amenities are also very good. The kids want to come back next year and we have already recommended to friends who have booked to stay in October.

  • "We have returned home from a lovely holiday in Hen Argoed Cottage."

    The cottage was comfortable and well equipped for cooking etc, we did not need to use the wood fire as it was warm enough. A short history of the C15 farmhouse and farm buildings would have been very welcome; (Sarah did tell me that there was a tannery and mill there). We found shopping difficult and only discovered the SPAR shop with an excellent butcher south of Llanbedr the day before we left! The cottage was in a very good position for local walks and excursions farther afield, a lovely part of the world! Beth Davis

  • "It was a real privilege to stay for Easter week in this historic 15th century farmhouse, situated on a family farm on a hillside just above Llandanwg."

    It is spacious and extremely attractive, with amazing beams in the roomy bedrooms, a well equipped modern kitchen / dining room, and a large sitting room with huge fireplace and log burning stove. Absolutely gorgeous!! It is good to be aware that you might get the odd bumped head when not concentrating and that the track up from the main road is slightly rough. But it is what it is....a working farm! Also, just to be slightly picky, we thought the outside area was a little neglected. Dead plants in tubs ( managed to give the window boxes an Easter resurrection!) and the garden grass could have done with being mowed. But we loved it and highly recommend.....

    The cottage features lovely original beams and a fine inglenook fireplace -bags of character.15th.century but sympathetically restored with modern conveniences. The owners Eurigg & Sara are very welcoming and clearly run the accomodation very well. The location is well placed for visiting the nearby coastal resorts and enjoying the beautiful rugged countryside, typical of this region. Would definitely stay here again.
