A 400-year-old farmhouse on the side of a hill with big sea views – slow food, fine sunsets, a sandy beach and Snowdon’s mountains all wait

Read guest comments

The view here is fabulous – a clean sweep across Cardigan Bay to the Llyn Peninsula beyond. Below, a ten-mile beach runs north to Harlech Point; behind, the Rhinog mountains rise. As for the farmhouse, it sits high on the hill and dates to 1581. It’s a small, homespun world – Peter and Paula do it all themselves - a simple retreat with delicious slow food at the end of the day. Inside, you find thick stone walls, comfy sofas and a wood-burner in the inglenook. Bedrooms are scattered about. Those in the main house have a cosy feel with warm colours, low ceilings, perhaps a four-poster. Those in the outbuildings tend to be a little bigger and have painted stone walls, then ceilings open to the rafters. By day you explore the wonders of Snowdonia – you can climb mountains, take to cycle tracks or merely walk in the hills. By night you return to feast on local delights under ancient beams, perhaps Rhydlewis smoked salmon, Welsh Black steak, apple tarte tatin; if you’re still hungry after that, excellent Welsh cheeses wait. Don’t miss Portmeirion, or links golf at Harlech and Aberdovey.

  • Ten minutes walk will see you on a huge stretch of sandy beach laid out below us. Face the other way and you can start climbing up towards the Rhinog Mountains for more breathtaking views. Or sit in the garden with a pint and just gaze at the panarama.
  • An old fishing village in recent times but once the centre of shipping and shipbuilding before the the railway came in 1867, Barmouth is a fascinating mix. Wander the small shops, have a coffee, take the ferry or walk the stunning Barmouth Bridge..
  • Ride the Little Trains - the area is teeming with them. Quirky and travelling through spectacular scenery and not only popular with children and anoraks. Talyllyn Railway for Thomas the Tank. All Aboard!
  • Barmouth is at the head of the Mawddach Estuary and at the far end is Dolgellau. In between is some of the most glorious scenery in the British Isle and a disused railway track gives a fabulous and gentle walk between the two for walkers and cyclist.
  • Harlech Castle, with its new steel and glass bridge in the morning, lunch at Castell Deudraeth that gets you free entry into Portmeirion Village. Venture onto the Lleyn Peninsula in the afternoon. Splendid!
  • Cadiar Idris, our local 'big mountain' is located in magnificent woods, walks and cycle routes. If you are tough why not try some of the great zipwires we have - or even an underground trampoline at Blaenau Ffestiniog's slate caverns.

"Had an amazing dinner at LLwyndu Farmhouse Hotel during our stay. Charming traditional setting with a cosy and relaxing atmosphere. My food was fantastic! Lots of Local produce used- amazing welsh cheese with my onion soup for starter. My main course was a tasty chicken and chorizo dish with roasted vegetables and great fluffy roast potatoes! I had an apple and sultana crumble for desert which had an interesting lemon zest in- really unusual but nice with cream! Overall great food, friendly service and a beautiful location. Will defiantly be visiting again soon. Thanks"
