Pet Friendly Self Catering Holiday Farmhouse Near Harlech, Snowdonia, Wales – Sl



Updated: 05-Oct-2016
Farmhouse in hillside above Harlech, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales - Peaceful Rural Location Close To The Coast

Tyddyn-y-Felin is situated in the Snowdonia National Park with its many attractions amongst the wild Rhinog Mountain ranges and many lakes in the area. Covering over 823 square miles of diverse landscapes, Snowdonia National Park has something for everyone including Ramblers, Cyclists (cycle path on the doorstep), Wildlife enthusiasts, Bird Watchers, Artists, Photographers, fishing, canoeists and climbers. Wild goats can be seen in the garden of the property frequently, much to the plants/trees’ disappointment! and buzzards are seen often. Star Gazers will be amazed at the bright sky at night, no smog here! The coast and all its coastal walks are very close by. Comfortable accommodation for two to seven people, prices on request. Groups of 6 max. welcome. Unfortunately, the house is not suitable for people with walking difficulties i.e. steep path and steps. Sorry No smoking in property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Really cosy cottage in incredible setting. Thoroughly enjoyed despite the mixed weather!

We have been coming to Wales from Holland for 16 years and are best friends with the family from the start. We love it here!

We have been coming from Kent for over 30 years and have seen many changes! We love it here and will keep coming whilst health allows with our dog to see our lifetime friends.

Character property in beautiful, tranquil location with friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

As a gay couple with a boisterous Labrador, we worry about finding accepting accommodation. We had no need to worry here. The owner is very welcoming, from giving us tips on best things to see in the area (the Roman Steps walk from Llyn Cwm Bychan was stunning) to providing a dedicated towel for our dog (much needed with use of her pond for doggy swims).

This property is full of character, furnished with items from 4 generations of the owner's family. We love to cook so were pleased to find a fully kitted out kitchen. Every room was clean and comfortable.

Whilst we used the property as a base to travel around Snowdonia (we hiked up Snowdon, travelled on the Ffestiniog railway from Porthmadog and rode Europe's fastest zip wire at Bethesda), we also took advantage of the gorgeous countryside walks surrounding the property. Had we stayed longer, we would certainly have done more of those.

One of our reasons for staying in Harlech was the beaches so near along the coast. Harlech beach is vast with plenty of dog-permitted space.

The only thing that we weren't prepared for was all the steep, narrow roads around the property. The owner sent us excellent directions beforehand that took us on the best roads, but if you're coming up from Harlech Castle be prepared for a lot of single-track driving in 1st gear. Don't follow the sat-nav blindly from the Llanfair direction as you may find yourself on even narrower roads with gates to open and close on the way. Keep the directions you're given in the car so you can find your way back the right way!

Come the end of our stay in this property we were sad to leave. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to come back again, maybe with more family/friends to take advantage of the large house and to share the experience with others.

Owner's Response: Many thanks to both of you and Charlie the dog! It was lovely to meet you and Roxy, my dog (and maybe the cats!), were also sad to see you and Charlie leave, we hardly knew you were there! We also share that rare experience on your last day and I think that maybe it survived! Regards Heulwen

From the Owner

I was born here with my brother and sister on a working farm. The house was handed down to the next generation. I moved to Manchester for a short period of time in my life but missed this place and its tranquility so much and came home once more. I like to get away from the crowds and traffic. There is nowhere like it really for me as it has everything i.e. mountains, lakes and a beautiful coastline within 1.5 to 2 miles. A lot of the land is now sold on to other people but the farm animals are still around the house and fields. If you love outdoor life, this is the place for you.

From the Owner

The parking is near the pond and is free. There is a bench here to sit to watch the fish jumping or watch the birds catch insects and sometimes a Heron fishing. Children can bring their nets and catch tadpoles at certain times of the year or fish for crabs at nearby beaches and seaside towns. We do have Wi-Fi access but hopefully some nice weather will get you out there! There is a lake for canoeing down the lane but you must have third party insurance and is entirely at your own risk - price on request.
