A two bedroom cottage on a working Welsh farm

Hengaeau


(near Harlech) - A two bedroom ground floor cottage on a working small hill farm.

Another hidden gem nestling among the mountains of the Snowdonia National Park. This two bedroom ground floor cottage is a perfect retreat for people looking to get away from it all.
It’s quite a new build so all the essentials are well taken care of. Efficient central heating, unlimited hot water, a fully fitted kitchen and immaculate décor throughout. The lounge is comfortably furnished and include a very traditional and handsome welsh dresser. We spent a lot of time with the large patio doors thrown open so as to make the most of the view. The cottage looks out onto the northern slopes of Moelfre and the Llawlech mountain range which stretch out towards Barmouth and the Mawddach Estuary. And cow watching is much more fun than people watching.
There’s separate dining area which sits five or more quite comfortably. Next is the kitchen, quite small but it has everything you’d need including a dishwasher and washing machine. There’s a large bathroom with shower over bath. One twin bedroom room and finally, a large family bedroom with double bed and an extra single bed if required. Opening the curtains in this south facing bedroom every morning was one of my favorite bits of the holiday.
 

Location

Hengaeau sits above the pretty little seaside village of Llanfair on the Cambrian coast. You climb up a small lane out of the village before winding your way back down a private driveway to the farm. The nearest beach, Llandanwg, is one of our favorites, with its little rock pools to one side and sandy dunes on the other. The historic castle town of Harlech is about 2 miles to the north. There are three or four pubs in the town as well as a selection of restaurants. There’s also the castle of course and the famous St David’s links golf course.
If you decide to stay at Hengaeau you must also find the time to drive a little further up the lane to Cwm Bychan and the magical lake up there. It’s a beautiful spot and offers some fantastic wild trout fishing. Other popular activities in the area include mountain biking and walking of course.

Comments

"This is a very pleasant specious bungalow with many of the necessary odds and ends needed for a holiday. We really enjoyed our stay here and the friendliness of the people at the farm. Would recommended it to anyone who has their own transport.. My grand daughter loved the cat and was overjoyed when she came for a walk with us all the way up the lane and back.

"I have just returned from a week in this cottage, it was so peaceful, beautiful and a really relaxing break (even with a 1 year old!). Despite the mixed weather we found plenty to do – day trip to Llanberis to visit the Slate Museum and take the Llanberis lake railway train ride (climbing Snowdon we left for next time), Farm Park nearby which our toddler really enjoyed, walking in Coed Y Brenin, exploring Harlech Castle, beautiful walks from out of the front door… and we were very lucky to have three gorgeous lambs at the farm who we could help to feed! However for the times that we just wanted to relax inside the cottage was warm and cosy, and the views are lovely down to the sea. Helen and her family were all amazing, and we very much hope that we’ll be able to return soon!"

"Just arrived back home after a wonderful holiday in Wales. Hengaeau is a well equipped cottage with wonderful views and the peace and quiet you so long for when you’re on holiday . We enjoyed talking to our hosts, who were very warm and welcoming. Harlech is a beautiful place with its beach, the castle and its quirky little streets with some nice shops. Hengaeau is the right starting point for walks in the area and for various other outings. We went mountainbiking in Coed Y Brenin, went by train along the coast and enjoyed the numerous prehistoric and historic sites on Angelsey. Closer by, we enjoyed Shell Island and the beautiful little church at Llandanwg.
Dear Helen and family, we will tell friends and family in Holland that they must certainly stay at Hengaeau when they consider vitising Wales. Thank you for a wonderful holiday and hopefully we will return."
