Wonderful Wales

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in a wonderful location with close by things to do everyday. The accomadation is superb, comfortable and just like home. Our welcome was wonderful and the whole stay was very relaxing. We will definitely be returning as the facilities were perfect for our fun family holiday by the sea. Provisions in the cottage are more than adequate. A cosy place to stay in a beautiful location.

A perfect home from home

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Gwelfor for a week and we had a truly wonderful stay. The owner met us at the cottage and made us feel very welcome. She showed us around, explained how everything worked and told us about the local amenities.

The cottage is very cosy and the view down to the coast is wonderful. It is very clean and well equipped making this a great cottage for a family.

It is a great base to explore Snowdonia National Park and the beaches along the coast are truly stunning. There is so much to do in the area. Plenty of mines and castle to explore as well as some traditional seaside towns down the coast. I would highly recommend Gwelfor. Thank you for making our stay very enjoyable.

All we wanted from aWelsh holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage lived up to all my expectations - cosy, comfortable, with a wood-burning fire. Bed was good, as was the central heating and hot-water system. Everything worked well, and there were lots of little extras which really helped to make us feel quite at home.

The property is really lovely and I would recommend this cottage to my best friend. We loved the cosiness and comfort of it all. We would definitely book again with these owners.

Activity and Interests


10-15 minutes steady walk or 5 minutes drive to the nearest beach, with rock pools and safe bathing, Harlech beach has it all. Take a walk down the public footpath to find 4 miles of golden sands, plenty of space to swim, play and picnic, even in the height of the summer. Probably Llanfairs best kept secret. If the tide is out explore the rockpools, walk down to Llandanwg beach, have a break at the cafe, or walk up to Harlech and admire the castle and stunning views over the Llyn Peninsular.


Walking distance of local bus routes for transport into neighbouring towns, and the railway station for a coastal tour of the Llyn peninsular or a trip to other local coastal areas such as Barmouth, Porthmadog and Criccieth.


5 minutes drive to the local villages with a variety of pubs and restaurants.

20 minutes walk 5 minutes by car to Harlech castle, with Mount Snowdon being only an hours drive and well worth the trek or train to the top for the spectacular views.

20 minutes away from picturesque Port Merion village where the 60's 'The Prisoner' was filmed.

Further Details:

Non Smokers only. One well behave dog welcome free of charge, by prior arrangement with the owners.
