The Experience

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.

Lovely and caring hosts in an old farm house. My room was a good mix of fabric, wood and very old stone walls. The food was very tasty, both breakfast and dinner, and the cooking is highly recommended.

Gitta, Stuttgart

This is a fabulous B and B in the most lovely location for visiting the local area and further into North Wales. The hosts will provide delicious dinner as well as breakfast if needed. We spent four nights with our children aged 11 and 13, whom both loved it too. We shared a family room in the old granary next to the main house and were warm and comfortable in our well appointed bedroom. If the weather is as glorious - as it was for our half term break, I'm not sure why you'd want to stay anywhere else!

Wonderful location, lovely hosts and fabulous cooks!

Ilona, Twickenham

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

Carly, Rochester

A wonderful location; a friendly atmosphere with obliging hosts. The room was perfect. Breakfast was brilliant - particularly the eggs benedict. Thank you for a brilliant and relaxing stay.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Peter & Paula Thompson

  • 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 mouth 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.
