Sleeps 3

Cwm Yr Afon Cottage

Located on a working sheep farm, Cwm Yr Afon Cottage is a stone-built semi-detached cottage in the Snowdonia National Park. The cottage was formerly the boiler room of the owner's 500-year old farmhouse and has been refurbished to a very high standard, but still contains an open stone fireplace with a wood-burning stove and the property's original bread oven. This cottage is the perfect rural romantic retreat.

The open plan living area includes a TV with Freeview, DVD player, CD player, and WiFi. Facilities in the adjacent well-equipped kitchen includes an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, washing machine, and dishwasher. The cottage has one double bedroom with a single folding bed and en-suite bath, shower over, basin, and WC. Dog-friendly and child-friendly, with a cot, highchair and stairgate available on request. Outside is an enclosed front patio with furniture.

The village of Llanbedr lies in woodland between The Rhinogs and the beaches of the North Wales coastline. Located next to the River Artro and behind the high dunes of a nature reserve, this village is home to a variety of wildlife and birds. It also possesses local shops, bike hire, and mountain walks, as well as two pubs. Harlech is just three miles away and is home to the thirteenth-century Harlech Castle, the famous Royal St. David's golf course, and a six-mile-long sandy beach.

Exciting location

This cottage is something of a secret gateway to wild Wales,located on a 2000 acre sheep farm which stretches into the heart of the remote and rugged Rhinog country of southern Snowdonia. Great for walkers. Mountain lakes for trout fishers.
The cottage is accessed across a river ford and stoney track but has been refurbished to a high standard by the friendly and helpful owners who live next door. Although remote, the pubs and shops of Harlech and Llanbedr are no more than 20 mins drive from the farm. Well worth a visit if you're a fit outdoor type.

Absolutely wonderful cottage, location and 'hosts'

This is a fantastic place to come and relax and recharge your batteries. The cottage is really comfortable, very clean and now benefits from a lovely terrace Ben has put on the back which has views over the hills and is sheltered. You could drink your morning coffee there or have dinner.
The photos do the place justice to some degree but there are no pictures of the bathroom - no need to worry. It has a great shower, big bath and all the other necessities and is new and really spotless. I said to some degree, because obviously you don't get the feeling of the place...calm, tranquil and wonderfully relaxing. There is no mobile connection (which can be a benefit!) but there is Internet.
The surrounding area is fantastic for walkers or people who love the outdoors - woods that look like something out of The Hobbit, forests, lakes, hills, mountains and views over Snowdonia, the Rhinogs and the sea. You can go off into the mountains here or even to the sea very easily. You can even walk to Harlech from the cottage.
Ben and Sandra are lovely. They are friendly, helpful and very kind and know the area like the back of their hand. I really recommend this place - it was one of our best holidays.

the ideal getaway from civilisation

been meaning to do a review for some time on this one. The cottage offers all you need for a break of this type (secluded) plus more, namely the best bathroom in any rental cottage anywhere. Your hosts Ben and Sandra are always very willing to help with any thing and are genuine people. We promised to revisit and we will as soon as someone stops beating us to it. This is a special little place and we cannot wait to get back there again.

An amazing cottage in a very secluded location

Looking at this cottage on the internet showed what looked like a fantastic holiday cottage! The photos do not do it justice!! The cottage is excellent, finished to a high standard and supremely comfortably. Sadly the weather was warm so there was no need to use the log burning stove (first time I've wished for cold weather on holiday which didn't involve skiing :-) But the joy of this cottage is its location. It is in a very remote location, and very secluded. Sandra and Ben were on holiday themselves while we were there so we really did have the place to ourselves. It was so quiet it was unbelievable. The surrounding countryside is superb, with walking from the door. It is well placed for Harlech, Snowdon, Barmouth etc, which can all be reached quite quickly by car. The only downside? Having to leave after a glorious relaxing week. Thanks Sandra and Ben for sharing this with us.

no light pollution, no people pollution, just you the mountains and the sheep

This is our second stay and yet again had a wonderful time. It is lambing season and I had the delight of watching at close quarters a ewe give birth to twins. That was a fantastic experience for the non farmers/sheherds amongst us. We also climbed Snowdon up the Rangers path. Not easy but what an experience. The Rhinog mountains behind the property have some great walks aswell up to lakes and some fantastic views. The beaches are so clean and just the mountains and beach combo for us make it a great place to visit. The property is so comfortable with central heating and a wood burner. Well fitted out kitchen with plenty of plates, cooking dishes etc. The owners Ben and Sandra are either discreetly in the back ground if thats what you want, or really pleasant friendly people when you do meet with them. Nothing is too much trouble. The location if you want to walk and take in the wildlife and scenery is perfect. We will be visiting again I hope later this year.

If you want to be isolated this is the perfect cottage for you.

This was a perfect cottage for us as we wanted a very quiet location. The owners could not have been nicer and the facilities provided were great, plenty of logs and coal for the fire, a superb shower and the bed was very comfortable. The dogs liked lying in front of the woodburner when we had it lit but soon moved away to a cooler part of the lounge. If you aren't used to it, the roads are a little thin and winding but you soon get used. Wouldn't recommend the back road to Harlech though.

Stunning

The children and I stayed in this beautiful cottage, located near the little village of Llanbedr. We had a fantastic week staying in this cottage, which my children thought seemed magical. Especially as the cottage was located in an enchanted woodland surrounded by the beauty of nature. We had time to explore these local woodlands.
This cottage is great for walkers, hikers and someone who wants to escape the rat race.

So book this cottage if you fancy finding the inner Explorer in you. Enjoy the amazing mountains, woodlands, waterfalls and not forgetting the beautiful coastline... Oh an the miniature Italian village of Portmeirion, in Gwynedd

My little Random Masters loved 'exploring the Enchanted forest and River Afon, Wales'

I have to say the location is more beautiful when seeing it for real

Anyway Baa Baa for now. I'm sure you'll love the sheep too

Anjeni

We loved the isolation of the cottage and the freedom to roam on such beautiful land. The owners were a lovely family and made us feel very welcome.

Mr Roads

The cottage is very remote and in a stunningly beautiful location especially if, like us, yours is mostly a walking holiday. The family were friendly ,welcoming and helpful. The cottage is beautifully finished with all modern conveniences whilst preserving its historic interest. Loved it.

Mrs Rogers

This was a well converted comfortable cottage with very pleasant friendly owners. If you truly want to get away from the rat race and embrace the beautiful welsh mountains and hillsides then this is the place for you. Walks from the door and many more a short drive away. A peaceful, well located, get away from it all.

Mrs Appleton

The location was stunning. The hosts were very polite, friendly and accommodating. We would definitely go there again. Ideal for those wanting to get away from it all.

Ms Parsons

We liked the location and solitude of the cottage and the friendliness of the owners.

Mrs Nicholls

Another great break in Wales, thanks to the secluded surroundings at the peaceful cottage. This was our second visit to the same property in 7 months. We will definitely be visiting again!

Ms Parsons

The location was extremely quiet and peaceful. The hosts were friendly and helpful but not overso, therefore we felt very comfortable with them. The cottage was wonderful, no complaints about anything at all. All aspects of the treatment from Sykes were perfect, again, no complaints at all.

Mrs Ralph

We had a lovely relaxing holiday, the cottage was exactly what we expected which is why we choose it, the perfect get away with peace and quiet. The owners were lovely hosts with great of knowledge of the area, able to offer help and advice.

Mr Day

A gorgeous cottage in a secluded location. The owners were very friendly, welcoming and went the extra mile to help us. The surrounding area provides stunning scenery and good walks. Easy access to the beautiful beaches of Harlech, Barmouth and Abersoch.

Mrs Hall

If you need any information ask the owners! They are a lovely couple and made us feel very welcome; nothing was too much trouble for them.

Mrs McGrath

The cottage was very comfortable and the location was spectacular!

Mrs Andrews

Location and really nice owners of the cottage, who were more that helpful.

Very comfortable property, in a lovely position for a quiet and relaxing holiday. The owners of the property were very friendly and helpful and made us feel comfortable. The quality of furnishings were all of a very high standard. Highly recommended!

Mr Pemberton

The cottage was stunning and exactly as described. It was just what we were looking for as a getaway and was so peaceful. The owners were so friendly and made us feel very welcome, helping us out with any questions. We hope to be able to visit again.

A wonderful cottage. Really well-kept and spotless. Extremely helpful, friendly, lovely hosts. The place (and people) were absolutely perfect. I have recommended this place to many people already.

Amazing countryside and a great cottage to stay in, with really friendly and helpful owners.

Ms Ison

The location: absolutely great. The availability of the owners who were very nice and gave very useful advice.

Ms Gaborit

We were comfortable in the cottage very quickly and the owners could not have been more helpful or friendly. The outdoor areas were particularly good as they were safe environments for our young son to play in. The location of the cottage is stunning. Overall we were completely happy and would love to stay there again.

Mrs Hind

Excellent - a great place and lovely people.

Mr Farnham

We had the most wonderful relaxing holiday in a very beautiful, cosy & comfortable cottage in the most stunning location. Would we go again, a huge resounding yes! Missing it already!

Mrs Hutchings

A beautiful cottage in stunning surroundings. The owners were very welcoming and helpful, and the location of the cottage added to the whole experience. Our five year old son loved the adventure and can't wait to return. Although the cottage was nicely secluded it still gave easy access to Barmouth, Harlech, Shell Island and Nantcol Waterfalls to name but a few. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Mrs Stott

Delightful and well maintained cottage in an idyllic setting. The owners could not have been more helpful and it was great that the dog could come too!

Ms Rendall

I loved the isolation and the fact that you were so far away from reality. The farmer was very helpful and kind, going out of his way to make sure we were all OK.

Mrs Pardoe

A wonderful cottage in an absolutely beautiful location. There was easy access to mountain walks (straight out the door) and it was just a short 10mins to the nearest beach, pub and shop. The owners are such friendly and hospitable people too.

Mr Thomason

Being able to walk through hills straight from Cwn Yr Afon was ideal for us. It is in a perfect, isolated location. The car was hardly needed all week. The owners are a lovely friendly couple.
