The Ffestiniog Railway is the oldest independent railway company in the world - being founded by an Act of Parliament in 1832.

"Cosy accommodation, fantastic views, for all the family"
Despite the weather being awful (constant heavy rain) we had a great time at Llech-Y-Dwr. The house itself is really cosy (and really well insulated) with a open stone fireplace with log burner in the centre of the house- perfect for curling up in a cosy chair to read the paper and drink a glass of wine. There is a separate lounge for the family members who just wanted to watch TV in peace and for kids there is a fab football table and pool table to entertain them. The property also benefits from a granny annex on the side which has a double bedroom, lounge and own bathroom and kitchen. Perfect for a couple with babies that need feeding in the middle of the night as it is soundproofed from the rest of the house. There is a good size kitchen/breakfast room and separate dining room. Our kids had plenty of fun playing hide & seek round the house!
Outside there is loads of room to run around and explore (not that we got much opportunity to do this with the weather!) but we can't wait to visit again so that we can make use of the zip wire and BBQ area which has fabulous views of the lake in the grounds and the sea. The seaside is a 5 mins drive.

We booked a week for Christmas, and wanted peace quiet and a healthy week away.
The accommodation is idyllic.it is like been in the middle of no where but only 10 minutes from local amenities.
We were a family and friends group of 6 and there was plenty of space. The facilities are superb, the wood burner been a popular item after a day out walking.
The facilities are secondary to the fantastic views and positioning of the property. We were at the base of a few great hill walks and 5 minutes from a great beach area. All in all it was a fantastic choice for a week of healthy living and fresh welsh countryside. We did venture in to Caernarfon and had a few beers and some good meals, but returning back to the farm was the high light.
We loved the cold but will hook a break in the summer when I'm sure it will be a place of outstanding beauty.
If you want a perfect peaceful break - book here you will love it.
