The Experience

This charming whitewashed cottage is one of five on the Wern Estate, on the edge of Snowdonia National Park. You let yourself in using the key safe, but housekeeper Kerrie will pop in during your visit and is on hand if needed – ask about having a home-cooked meal waiting when you arrive and dine in the conservatory looking out over the gardens.

Snuggle next to the wood-burner in the sitting room with a book or play games while you indulge in the generous welcome hamper, which includes homemade cake, jam, Welsh cakes and biscuits as well as fresh ground coffee, tea and an artisan loaf. Pick your own herbs from the garden and cook up a storm in the farmhouse kitchen or use the barbecue on the patio when it’s balmy. Immerse yourself into the hot tub under the stars before bed!

A pretty stream runs alongside the house, and at the back there’s a secret garden with inspiring views across a private lake to the surrounding hills of the Llyn Peninsula. Walk to the beach at Black Rock Sands in 40 minutes, explore the nearby seaside towns of Criccieth and Porthmadog and have a fascinating day out at Portmeirion, designed in the style of an Italian village (a seven-mile drive).

Reviews

Pont Faen was a delightful place to stay. Off the beaten track yet perfectly presented - everything we needed was there. An extremely comfortable and cosy cottage and so peaceful.

Raymond, Horsham

We were lucky enough to stay at Pont Faen in August last year. It is a simply superb cottage set in the middle of nowhere with just a few curious sheep for neighbours. It has everything that you could possibly need and is exceptionally comfortable. We have already booked again this year. Book it - you will love it.

Kate, Keighley

A wonderful place to stay, quiet and peaceful with local little walks of interest. Not far too to some great attractions, steam railways, castles, beaches and more. The cottage has lots of character, with everything you need for your stay. Thoroughly recommended.

James, Sheffield

Beautiful cottage in a peaceful setting. Very comfortably appointed to a high standard. Beds were so comfortable we bought the same pillows when we returned home! Highly recommended - we will be back!

Andrea, Chipping Norton

Absolutely loved this cottage we are returning this May. Decorated beautifully with ample amenities. Situated in an ideal location which enables access to many beautiful destinations in Wales. This is the perfect place to get away and put your busy lifestyle behind you, even if it’s just for a week or two.

Heather, Redditch

Pont Faen is an idyllic country cottage in a peaceful and private setting down a long country lane. We had a wonderful stay here, zip wiring, abseiling and canyoning. The cottage fitted the five of us in well with excellent facilities. The furnishings and linen were perfect and the wood burning made a wonderfully cosy sitting room. The kitchen was very well equipped and the breakfast room worked very well in terms of layout.

Alexandra, Northamptonshire

This was 'lock down' year and it was so important for us to find an outstanding property in a quiet location that we could use as a base for exploring the Lyn Peninsular and visit Anglesey. We could not have chosen better. We were absolutely delighted with the property and its location. Despite all that Covid could throw at us we were able to enjoy a truly wonderful holiday, one that will not be forgotten and which we shall undoubtedly return to when the opportunity presents itself.

John, Hereford

Utterly magical cottage. First class cleanliness, finish, facilities, fixtures and fittings. Surprisingly spacious for the 5 of us too. We loved our time here and didn't want to leave. The peace and quiet is remarkable; the tranquility seems to absorb any stress out of you..!

Damian, Solihull

A very peaceful, quiet and tranquil place that has clearly been renovated to a high standard. Extremely clean, comfortable and well equipped. Very well located to explore local area, beaches etc. We had a great week and would certainly return. I have no hesitation in recommending to others.

Dick, Hexham

Great cottage, great location as it's close to nice villages and the amenities in the cottage are good. Only small issues such as difficult pathway to the house with a wheelchair but other than that has everything you need and ample parking. Driveway is further than you think so just keep driving!! Booked to stay again next year.

Sally, Manchester

We had a wonderful family holiday at Pont Faen. The cottage is warm, friendly and very comfortable. The garden is perfect for the kids to play in. We had mixed weather but there was plenty of space inside to us all to hang out into. We love the area, not far from beautiful walks in Snowondia and stunning beaches and coastlines. Thank you for a gorgeous stay and we will return!

Location

The neighbourhood

The Llyn Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Welsh Coast Path runs around it, passing coves, beaches, churches and the remains of Iron Age forts. The Victorian seaside resort of Criccieth, six minutes’ drive away, has the remains of a 13th-century castle, as well as independent shops and good restaurants – try Dylan’s, a seafood restaurant in an art deco building facing the sandy beach.

Local points of interest from Tamar Ferguson

  • 2000 Acre private rural Estate surrounded by oak woodlands. The gardens are lawned and private
  • The pretty seaside of Criccieth is just 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, restaurants and independent shops.
  • Porthmadog, with it's marina and shops, is just 5 minutes away
  • 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.
  • Llanbedrog is a charming little seaside village with a superb beach and the most famous line of beach huts in North Wales. Visit the Oriel Plas Glyn Y Weddw Gallery for homemade cake and see David's (the owner of Y Boncyn) sculpture "Louise" in the garden.
  • You can enjoy our lovely eco-friendly wood fired hot tub whilst staying with us.
