(near Barmouth) - 3 bedroom cottage, on a working welsh hill farm and sitting in a slightly elevated position the cottage looks out over Cardigan Bay
Hendy is on a working welsh hill farm. The farm owners Eirian and Iwan are really nice and live just a short walk away from the cottage. They’re more than happy, if time permits, to show their guests around the farm and to advise on the best places in the area to visit.
But the cottage will be your base of course. The front door opens onto a central oak paneled staircase. With ledge and brace doors to the left and right giving access to the lounge and dining room respectively. The lounge has an impressive inglenook with a cast iron stove as well as plenty of comfortable seating. The dining room next door is a lighter space and again generously proportioned. So plenty of room for those family meals.
The dairy towards the back of the property has been converted into a well equipped kitchen. The original slate floor is more visible here. The original slate worktop in the larder keeping food cool as it did the milk in years gone by.
Three bedrooms upstairs. Two double rooms and one smaller single room. More oak paneling, ledge and brace doors with wrought iron latches and exposed beams. All three bedrooms have stunning views over Cardigan Bay. The bathroom has the luxury of a huge cast iron enameled bath as well as a standard shower.
Sitting in a slightly elevated position the cottage looks out over the sands of shell island and the Artro estuary and onto Cardigan Bay and the mountains of the Llyn Peninsula beyond. The little village of Llanbedr is about a mile down the road. There are two pubs in the village as well as a small grocery store, post office and butchers.
You’re right on the doorstep of Cwm Nantcol and the Rhinnog Mountains so plenty of opportunities for walkers. And the beaches along this stretch of the north wales coastline are among the nicest in the UK. And no, it doesn’t always rain in wales. Other attractions include golf on the Royal St Davids links course in Harlech, mountain biking at the award winning Coed Y Brennin Centre and White water rafting on the Tryweryn river.

"We were in for a pleasant surprise when we reached Hendi farm – late at 10.30 on the first night of our stay.From the outset, its a beautiful old house that you always wanted to stay at … We expected the cottage to be v old from the inside as well.. It turned out to be fully sophisticated, well maintained from the inside. The cottage was v nice – 1 single bedroom, 2 double bedroom suites – All are sea facing , with the sea hardly 2 to 3 miles away. The living room has a fireplace to keep us warm , if need be..
More importantly, we were helped through the booking process very easily and they didn’t mind
answering our many queries that we had !The farm owners were very kind – they even didn’t mind coming at 10.30 in the night to help us settle …
All in all, we loved the place and would prefer this cottage over any other any day ! Just made our trip more pleasant …"
