The Experience

As with the other houses on the Wern Estate, the attention to detail is second to none. The linen, the lighting, the plump feather pillows… each detail delights. This is an 18th-century, single-storey cottage whose gardens – with Llyn Peninsular views – are enclosed by sturdy stone walls. It’s perfect for young families. Enter a lofty, open-plan, clean-walled space where sitting room, dining room and kitchen blend into one. There are solid beech worktops and an eye-level oven, comfortable beige sofas topped with cushions, limed oak floors, a wood-burner (logs provided) and bursting bookshelves. The Pink Room has two single beds you can zip together and doors to a pretty sun terrace; the Yellow Room has a king-size bed, a vaulted ceiling and a long window seat for the views; the Green Room catches the sea. Outside in your own gardens the children can romp to their hearts’ content, while you sit back and celebrate the sunsets and stupendous views. Explore Black Rock Sands or haul yourself up Snowdonia, or let the little train take the strain – the mountain railway runs from early spring to November.

I was for looking for a base from which to do some triathlon-training, and get a break from city life. We had some friends come and visit too. The house is very well-appointed, very cozy and comfortable, and perfectly situated to feel very peaceful and quiet, but still have quick and easy access to towns for supplies and restaurants etc. It’s the perfect setup for a relaxing getaway, and surrounded by excellent options for hiking, running, cycling, swimming, and surfing. We love Hebog Bach!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Tamar Ferguson

  • 2000 acre private country estate surrounded by ancient oak woodlands. There are stunning views across the Llyn Peninsula.
  • The pretty seaside town of Criccieth is a 5 minute drive (or 50 minute walk for the active ones among us!) - the pretty castle dominates the town and is a must to visit. Lovely cafes and independent shops.
  • Portmeirion is only a short drive away - created by Clough Williams-Ellis (the owner of the cottage is his great nephew) this quirky Italianaite village is full of surprises. Iconic architecture, scenic walks, restaurants, cafes and ice cream parlours!
  • Llanbedrog is a charming little seaside village with a superb beach and the most famous line of beach huts in Wales. Visit the Oriel Plas Glyn Y Weddw Gallery - see the owner's (David) sculpture "Louise" in the garden. Lovely tea room with homemade cakes
  • Black Rock Sands is a must - The beach is so vast that you can drive your car onto it. Perfect for dog walking, shell collecting, windsurfing or just having a good old run about.
  • We include a lovely welcome pack and a basket of our own logs for the woodburning stove.
