  • "Had a lovely stay at TREWEN."

    Lots of room for everyone. Very clean with excellent facilities. Another three generation family plus dog get together. Owners very helpful with supplying extra garden furniture and barbeque. We are all looking to book next year - just sorting out convenient dates.

  • "This was our second time back at Trewen."

    It is a fantastic holiday home based on a working dairy farm. Everything was just as lovely as it was last year. Delightful selection of goodies left for us including a barra brith to die for. The only thing I think was missing was an airer (I don't like to use tumble dryers) Great owner on hand if you need him (we didn't), he even let us go in and look at the newborn calves. We highly recommend Trewen.

  • "We had a wonderful stay, the pictures really didn’t do this house justice!"

    We’ve stayed at lots of Sykes properties as a large family and this one was perfect for us! The house being on a working dairy farm just added to the holiday experience for us and Rhydian the owner was super helpful and showed the children around the farm too. A wonderful holiday at a beautiful home.

  • "Amazing house."

    We’ve stayed in a few holiday rentals as a family of three generations and this has to be the best. Clean, comfortable and very well maintained. Spacious house that accommodated all of us easily and the five bedrooms all with beautiful en-suites made our stay even better. A well equipped kitchen and two eating areas gave us plenty of space for all to eat together. The house is within a short drive to plenty of beaches and to Pwllheli and Abersoch where there is a supermarket if you run out of supplies. Driveway huge, we had four cars between us and plenty of room for parking. The weather wasn’t the best when we stayed but as the house is so comfortable we didn’t mind spending time indoors . Would definitely return and will be recommending to extended family and friends .

  • "Trewen was a fantastic place to spend our week's holiday."

    On arrival Rhydian, the owner, had left a lovely welcome pack, which was very much appreciated. All bedrooms are ensuite with very good quality fittings. All the rooms are large and well equipped. Excellent utility room through the back door - great place to leave the muddy walking boots/ hang wet coats. Beautiful kitchen and as there were only 5 of us we used the kitchen table to dine and the large dining room table to spread out the maps. We have already booked for next year.

  • "The property was excellent for our needs and we were very appreciative of the fact that Rhydian had obtained two travel cots and two high chairs for our 2 x one year olds."

    The garden was brilliant for the little ones to play and we managed to have one bbq - the bbq was fab!! Thank you Rhydian !

  • "Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, recently converted ex farm house."

    5 ensuite bathrooms were a real bonus for our 3 generation family stay. We had everything needed to make our holiday perfect. Welcoming host on an immaculate farm with 180 cows.

  • "After more than 20 years caravanning on the Llyn, we continue to discover new areas and new places to stay - what a discovery Tre Wen was!"

    Spacious, immaculate in every way, rural and quiet, yet in easy reach of the many beaches. We had a fantastic week, enhanced by the amazing weather. So much so, we booked again before we’d even shut the car boot! Thankyou Rhydian and TreWen for new memories and adventures to come!

  • "This property is perfect in every way."

    The fixtures & fittings are of a very high standard. Large rooms, each spacious bedroom with its own en-suite. Kitchen fully equipped and more than enough cutlery & crockery. The outside is well maintained with comfortable seating & barbecues. The owners are in hand around the farm if needed , watching the cows come in for milking was a bonus. Although this property is in the countryside, it is only a short drive to local beaches.

  • "We have stayed in quite a few holiday homes/cottages at least 7 over the years and Trewen is probably the best."

    The outside space is huge and you can get the sun all day. It’s also well looked after outside and fenced all round so feels very secure for children. The kitchen is large and well equipped, the Dinning Room has a large table and seating for 12. Lovely spacious lounge, and all the bedrooms are large all with modern en-suites. Some have handy walk in wardrobes. There also a nice front conservatory which is great and catches the morning sun. It’s a very quiet location and there’s cows in the nearby fields. It’s not far from Abersoch which is lovely. Pwllheli is 10 minutes drive for a supermarket etc. A great house, ideal for a large family or large group of friends.

  • "Just finished our 3 nights at Trewen."

    Absolutely fantastic property. 3 families, 6 adults and 6 kids and we all had an absolutely fantastic time. The house us huge with loads of space for everyone and finished to such a good standard as it just been completed. The property is kitted out in every room with towels and comfy beds/pillows, all with en suites which are all excellent. The family room has a bath. It was spotless when we arrived and all decorated for Christmas with mince pie, sweets and treats left for us. Unfortunately it was raining the entire time were there and we couldn't enjoy the huge outdoor space available. The drive is so big you could fit plenty of cars on it. I can't praise this property enough. More plus points: Heated bathroom floors, heated throughout (it is so warm we had to turn the heating off most of the time), you can't hear people down stairs when you are upstairs, the kitchen is amazing with two fridges and freezers, induction hob, huge oven and combi, loads of plates, cutlery etc, so much space for everyone to do their own thing and didn't hear a thing from the farm which is right outside. We didn't get to meet the owner but we all wish we had to say thank you! We will be going back! Tip: The directions to the property were spot on, however the postcode isn't quite straight to the house, so for anyone tech savvy, the what3words for the house entrance are websites.inflation.skirt! Enjoy!

  • "An amazing stay in a brilliant location with great views all round the property."

    Very modern throughout and extremely useful to have a downstairs bedroom and en-suite. Kitchen was very spacious but could have done with a few more pans and utensils. The garden was lovely and spacious with plenty of seating and Rhyddian even provided a BBQ for us all to enjoy. We were a family of 11 with a big husky and would love to return and highly recommend to anyone who is thinking of booking!

  • "What an amazing house!"

    We have just returned from a wonderful weekend away at this newly renovated house. It has been done to a very high standard. It is very spacious and has everything you need. The views are amazing. It’s in a very quiet area on a working farm. We enjoyed watching the cows pass by each day. The owner, Rhydian was absolutely amazing! He greeted us when we arrived and recommended places in the area to visit. He was always available if needed. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Thank you so much for a lovely holiday Rhydian, we will definitely be back

The property

Sarn Meyllteyrn 2.5 miles.

Set in Botwnnog, near the rural village of Sarn Meyllteyrn in Gwynedd, is this five-bedroom former farmhouse, Trewen.

Encircled by a working farm and stunning views of the Welsh countryside, whilst featuring original A-frame beams, contemporary furnishings, sleek en-suites, and a large living space, the property accommodates twelve guests, ideal for a family or group escape.

Benefit from a generously-sized driveway, with a wrap-around garden in tow, perfect for spending sunny days outside, soaking in the warmth and enjoying the tranquillity of your base.

Head inside to a grand, stylish kitchen and utility, with all expected amenities to fulfil your self-catering needs, alongside a delightful dining room, homing an opulent twelve-seater wooden dining table, fitting for family brunches or evening meals.

To unwind, choose between the spacious living room, complete with a Smart TV, woodburning stove and plush sofas, and the suntrap conservatory, displaying far-reaching views across the nearby farmland.

Five inviting bedrooms will welcome you, one of which is positioned on the ground-floor, suitable for those with limited mobility, whilst four further bedrooms will sit on the first floor, all stylishly designed and boasting en-suite facilities.

Beyond the peace and quiet of the farm, head to Sarn Meyllteyrn, a neighbouring village, where you'll find all amenities to enjoy your stay in North Wales; Visit Ty Newydd Sarn for a pub lunch, the butchers for some local produce, and the nearby Post Office for the essentials.

Plas yn Rhiw, a 16th century manor house is within proximity to Trewen, well worth a visit on a summer’s day, strolling through acres of orchards and pretty flowers, whilst Porth Neigw and Iron Man are recommended vantage points for those who love the seaside.

Travelling towards Abersoch, opt for a stroll across its resident harbour beach, venture further towards Criccieth Castle, nestled between two sandy shores, or for those seeking a nature-filled day out, tour Eryri (Snowdonia) and its array of walking trails.

Pwllheli, a bustling market town is nearby, home to some of the most recognised sailing waters, where you can enjoy a stroll around Hafan Marina, and standby as an influx of yachts reach the harbour, or if you're feeling adventurous, climb one of three peaks situated upon Garn For, situated within Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

For a fabulous base with all that you'll need for a getaway to Gwynedd, choose Trewen.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £600.
