Surrounded by open countryside near the sea at Llanbedr, 3 miles from Harlech, this cottage retains some original artifacts, such as a wooden hay hopper in the lounge. Carefully renovated and comfortably furnished as a holiday cottage for its proud owners' personal holiday use, it also makes an excellent spacious family holiday accommodation. Situated within a short (10 minute) riverside walk to the pretty village, Inn and shop, and 1ml from Shell Island's sandy beaches and the sea, it also has the Wales Coastal path run right past its front door. The mountain lane to the lovely 'Two Valleys' begins from the village for a good scenic walk. The sleepy Cambrian Coast railway line nearby is well worth using for having a few 'car free' days or just to have a trip and appreciate the beautiful Welsh coastline. Harlech (3 miles) is a small quiet town built around the medieval castle with interesting shops (lot of antique shops), leisure centre, swimming pool, theatre, links golf course and lovely restaurants.

Guest Comments:
Mrs F: "We had a great time and the weather was brilliant! Shell Island was close by so we had a beach day there and we were able to walk to the pub with the dogs and baby - it only took 10 mins."
Mr S: "Plenty of area for children to play"


We strongly recommend that you take our Cancellation Protection (see Terms & Conditions). If you continue you will notice that during the next booking steps this will automatically be selected for you and the price will increase, so simply de-select them on the bookings screen if you already have holiday insurance or if you do not want any cover.

The Pet Charge for all properties accepting pets is £20 per pet.

After your stay, we ask you kindly to please leave the property as it is found, in a clean and tidy manner. This includes replacing the furniture if you have moved them, emptying all internal bins, clean and put away plates etc., clean work tops and surfaces and hoover the floors.

No Smoking: We want all our guests to enjoy an odour free environment when they arrive at their property. We therefore prohibit smoking within the premises in ALL our properties. A 'Refreshing Charge' will be levied on guests who smoke in properties. A No Smoking Policy may form part of a property's statutory Fire Risk Assessment.

Mini-breaks & Weekends: In most cases, bookings that are for less than 7 nights in the season (Easter to the end of October) are only bookable at short notice.

Weekend booking requests that do not start or end on a property's change-over day or cross over more than 1 week, are at the discretion of the property owner. Please feel free to call us to discuss your requirements.


Access Statement 

We are wholly committed to ensuring that all our guests are able to enjoy our facilities as fully as possible.  Please contact us when making your booking to discuss any concerns or special requirements and we will provide any detailed information you need and make any arrangements we can to assist you. 

There is ample car parking on site, close to the accommodation.  If your party will be bringing more than two cars (farmhouse) or one car per cottage, or if you require a wide or long parking space, please let us know so that we can advise you where best to park.  We will do our utmost to accommodate boats, trailers, bikes etc securely and again it helps if you let us know about these before arrival. 

The grounds include a small orchard, shared by all our guests, which has a narrow and sloping entrance. 

Old Byre Cottage

The car parking spaces and patio area are close to the cottages, with level access.  The patio area is usually kept clear of cars, but access right up to the door can be arranged if needed by individuals or for unpacking.  We regret that the accommodation is not adapted for wheelchair users, but both the cottage has a downstairs double bedroom and bathroom/toilets, which may be helpful for guests who have difficulty with flights of stairs. There is one small step into The Old Byre cottage (200mm).  The downstairs double bedroom in The Old Byre has an external door that opens directly onto the patio area, with a step of less than 20mm.  Due to the limitations of the converted old farm buildings, there are some narrow internal passages and doors, e.g. 730mm wide doorway from the lounge to the bathroom and bedroom in the Old Byre. Taller guests will notice that the headroom is restricted in some doorways and under the old beams which have been retained as a feature.  The cottages have baths with just a small hand shower attachment for rinsing hair etc. Light switch heights vary from 900mm to 1380mm.

Llanbedr railway station is conveniently close for guests travelling by public transport. It is a "request stop", so please inform the conductor/driver if you wish to stop at this station. If you are waiting to catch the train, make yourself clearly visible to the driver as your train approaches. There are about 7 trains in each direction on weekdays and Saturdays, operated by Arriva Trains Wales, with a timetable displayed on the road outside the station, just across the road from the property. Trains run to Porthmadog, Harlech, Pwllheli, Barmouth, and small stops along the way, and with advance planning, many of our guests enjoy exploring the area by train. Llanbedr village is on the bus route between Porthmadog and Barmouth. This is not as convenient or as much fun as the train, but with about 13 buses in each direction daily on weekdays and Saturdays it can make the logistics a little easier.

Llanbedr village is within walking distance, with shops, post office, pubs, restaurant etc, and the road has no gradients. Please note that there is no pavement for part of the way up to the village, so some care is needed when walking and driving along this road. 

Our caretakers, Mr and Mrs Jones, will gladly assist with luggage, bed making etc if required. Grocery deliveries can be arranged in advance of your stay.

Most of the beds are on the firm side, having pine bases, but there are some single divans. Pillows and duvets are man-made fabrics. It you have a particular requirement for soft or hard mattress or require special allergy-free bedding please let us know.

Televisions etc have remote controls which are checked regularly, but should a battery be flat please let us know. Televisions have teletext but we do not currently offer internet access.  The nearest pay phone is in the village opposite the Victoria Inn.  Mobile phone reception is generally acceptable in the area, but depending on your operator it can be poor inside the buildings.
