Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Y Felin is in the rural village of Dyffryn Ardudwy in Snowdonia. A short grassy drive leads to a private but sunny garden. (It never rains in Wales, honest!) Slate stepping stones guide you to the front door of this beautiful 17th century stone cottage.
Open the door and step onto the warm slates which cover the ground floor. (This under floor heating is a marvellous thing) The entrance hall leads to the kitchen on the right. We’ve tried to combine modern integrated facilities, dishwasher, washing machine etc with original features like the ledged and braced doors and exposed beams.
Opposite there’s a cosy lounge complete with obligatory inglenook or ‘simne fawr’. Historically this room would have been the kitchen and the cultural heart of the house. The cast iron log burner is dwarfed by the supporting oak beam and is perfect for those romantic evenings cuddled up together on the couch. Flat screen TV and DVD for the children (or for dad to watch the football)
Upstairs, one bedroom has a fitted wardrobe etc and can be set up as a twin or double. The pine doors with cast iron latches and uneven floor ensures that oldy worldy atmosphere prevails. The doors are painfully low and few ‘fisitors’ leave without banging their heads. Both bedrooms have window seats overlooking the fabulous coastline about half a mile away and the Llyn Peninsula beyond.
There’s a modern bathroom where the original and ancient timber structure of the house is evident. Complete with ceramic bath and power-shower, there’s a nice view of the cows from the toilet if you leave the curtains open.

The North Wales region
In front of the house some old barns and stone walls combine to provide a secluded courtyard type garden which compliments the calm atmosphere of the house. Surrounding that is a 4 acre field and some very friendly welsh black cows. They’re usually more than happy to give way to a game of football or kite flying etc. The train station is about half a mile away and the bus stop is just up the road. But best of all there are two pubs within walking/staggering distance.
Dyffryn is a very friendly village complete with a small grocery store and butchers, post office and garage. The historic town of Harlech is 10minutes drive to the North and the seaside town of Barmouth is 10 minutes to the south. Moelfre and the Rhinog Mountain rage is just behind you and the beach is just in front of you. Could there be a more perfect location?
Harlech has it’s famous castle of course as well as a world renowned 18 hole links golf course. There’s an excellent pony trekking school in Dolgellau, a nearby market town. Other sports growing in popularity include kite surfing, sea kayaking and paragliding.
