Mike and I would love to welcome you to stay in our beautiful Snowdonia cottage. Yr Hen Farcdy is situated in the foothills of the Rhinogs, at the end of a gated track, within the Snowdonia National Park. The bedrooms have views over the lovely cottage garden, surrounding countryside and ancient oak woodland. Parts of our cottage are over 300 years old and we have a beautiful cottage garden for guests to sit in and relax in this peaceful setting.

The space
We bought our cottage 2 years ago, and have enjoyed decorating/refurbishing the apartment to a high standard. The private section of the cottage, for our guests, is situated on the 1st floor, accessed by stairs. We offer either a double room or twin room (please confirm before your arrival which you will require). Unfortunately, due to an open staircase, our cottage is not suitable for young children. Tea/coffee making facilities are available in the private hallway, with a mini-fridge (fresh milk/filtered water provided). We have also provided books, dvds, local information leaflets, restaurant menus, and maps. Each of the bedrooms have tv/dvd/hairdrier/electric fan. Breakfast is included as part of your stay with us. This consists of a choice of full English/vegetarian/yoghurt with fruit/choice of cereals/fresh coffee/tea/fresh orange juice. Breakfast is served from 7.30am, or if you want a lie-in, let us know.

Guest access
We offer free parking on our private drive for cars. Motor bikes and bicycles can be safely stored in our garage.
Guests are very welcome to spend time in our beautiful garden.

Other things to note
Due to new covid-19 regulations we are serving cooked breakfasts in our guests' bedroom.

Yr Hen Farcdy is a great base for exploring the beaches, castles and mountains of this beautiful part of Wales, on the edge of the Llyn Peninsula. We are located just outside Talsarnau, inbetween Harlech and Porthmadog. There is a footpath from the cottage's doorstep leading to a wide variety of walks. We are approx 10 miles form the Antur Stiniog Downhill Trails and 15 miles from the Coed Y Brenin mountain bike centre. The local Ei Steddfa Fishery meets the needs of all ages, having a trout and family fishing lake. There is also sea fishing at Barmouth, Borth-Y-Gest and Criccieth. The castle towns of Harlech, Caernarfon and Criccieth are within 10-35 miles drive. The harbour town of Porthmadog is a 10 mins drive away with many amenities including the popular Black Rock Sands. The beautiful, romantic 'Italian Village'- Portmeirion is only a 5 mins drive away and is well worth a visit during your stay here. Snowdonia has some of the best and varied rock climbing in the world, including the nearby Tremadog crags. Bird watchers will also love it here with many species visiting our garden on a daily basis. Even if you just need to unwind, relax, read a book you will find a haven here.

My partner Mike and I have recently moved from Derbyshire into our beautiful cottage Yr Hen Farcdy . We have always loved the area and saw moving here as an opportunity not to be missed. I used to work at a wonderful dental practice and Mike was a landscape gardener. Our long held dream was to find a job that we could do together. We are so excited to be able to host our cottage as a bed and breakfast, and rent out our caravan on the beautiful Aberdunant Hall site.. We both love motor bikes and rock music ( my guilty pleasure though is Michael Buble :) ) We have a wonderful family with many grandchildren who absolute love coming to Grandma and Mike's seaside cottage and caravan.
