Cute Stone Cottage in a Quiet Village Location | Bodfan

Dog FriendlyNear BeachNear PubReal Fire

This cute stone cottage in a quiet village location is a great little hideaway for anyone wanting to explore this part of North Wales. With a pub right on your doorstep and beaches, mountains and outdoor activity providers nearby guests won't be left wanting for things to do.

A spacious lounge includes two very comfortable real leather sofas facing onto a fantastic log burner set within the original stone inglenook. Beautifully furnished with some real individual bits and pieces the attention to detail is a welcome break from other more off the shelf holiday accommodation.

The slightly quirky theme continues next door into the kitchen diner. An old pine table surrounded by individual dining chairs sits on a real slate floor. Pastel painted kitchen units are complimented by built in storage cupboards with stripped back pine doors. A great space to put the plan for the day together whilst eating warm toast covered in salted welsh butter.

We return into the lounge to climb the stairs up to the first floor. Two double bedrooms up here. Again, both bedrooms are really nicely put together with traditional welsh bed throws sitting atop thick comfortable duvets on a cast iron bed. Both bedrooms each have a large integral wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside tables. They each share a central bathroom which has a shower over bath arrangement.

Llanystumdwy is a very pretty and friendly little village on the border between the mountains of the Snowdonia Park and the more coastal plains of the Llyn Peninsula. The village is famous as being the birthplace of Lloyd George, the British Prime Minister during the First World War. His childhood home is just down the road from the cottage and a museum commemorating his life is well worth a visit. There’s a great pub serving local food on your doorstep and a stocked fishing river just up the road.

Bodfan is also a great base from which to explore the whole of North Wales. The seaside village of Criccieth is just a 5 minute drive away (and has the best ice cream in the world) and the Snowdonia mountains are only 15 minutes further on. There’s pony trekking, sailing, paintballing, go carting and cross country Segway riding all available within a short distance. The petting farm in nearby Chwilog is our family’s favourite day out (despite the fact that we live on a farm) and should not to be missed. Take a picnic and enjoy the fabulous views as the children play with the newborn lambs.

A lovely little cottage in a great location for getting out and exploring different areas. We stayed for the weekend and were not affected be any noise from the pub, it was really quiet. It was really clean and had everything we needed in the kitchen. For some reason the fridge wasn’t plugged in, which we only realised at the end of the weekend, but as it was cold it didn’t really matter too much, was just a bit strange that it would be unplugged.
The wifi isn’t great. Extremely slow, kept cutting out and at times didn’t work at all despite all the usual obvious measures the reset it etc. Worth bearing in mind if you thought you might stream a movie in the evening or need to keep in touch with anyone at home as there is also no phone signal.

Second stay at Bodfan and I can’t fault the place. It’s a home away from home. Top marks for cleanliness. Quiet, cosy, comfortable. The perfect place.

Very comfortable cosy cottage,really well equipped,the beds were comfortable with colourful warm duvets and a hairdryer. Storage for clothes was ample hanging space and drawers aplenty. The log burner was welcome for cooler nights and the heating on timer worked well. Parking on road not an issue for us. Pub next door the Feathers sadly does not serve food at the moment which was a shame. There was no issue with noise and the lounge window now has a net curtain over the lower half and a blind for privacy. It’s location is fabulous for exploring Snowdonia National Park and the Llyn Peninsula. Dylans by Criccieth Beach was a lovely place to eat, sea views in an art deco building tasty food but recommend booking. A broken tap was sorted out straight away by the owners who were delightful to talk to and could not have been more helpful. We highly recommend.


I’ve just spent 5 days at the cottage and it was amazing. Very clean. The owners had thought about it from the holidaymakers’ side and it literally had everything you wanted.
From the moment you walked in it felt like a home from home not cold and bare like some holiday lets can be. So cosy and a great night’s sleep.
The only slight thing is that there were no blinds or curtains on the lounge window or window in the front door so with the lights on in the evening you felt a little exposed and the people sat in the pub beer garden could see straight in.
Apart from that I can’t fault it! So much so, I’m booking again for the end of the year!
Thank you to Dioni and the owners.

We had a lovely week (helped by the hot weather). Lovely cottage, very well equipped (the bedrooms and shower were especially nice) although the internet was not the best when we were there. It was very quiet in the village even though there is a beer garden literally on the doorstep it didn’t interfere.
Lloyd George Museum was very interesting and Criccieth, Llanbedrog, Morfa Nefyn And Aberdaron were just as lovely as ever.
Thank you to the staff at Dioni for your help in securing us a lovely last minute holiday

After two years between the last stay some nice things had changed. New bench on the patio and a bench at the new front door. Bodfan is a cosy and handy little cottage in front of a very nice pub with beer garden. We loved it to relax, after a nice hiking tour close to the Afon Dwyfor or the coast path, with pint of Wrexham and nice contact to the people. Looking forward to our next stay.


Lovely little cottage – easy to find thanks to the previous comments. Plenty of walks nearby and a easy costal walk into Cricceth

We arrived on Saturday after a 4 hour drive, found the cottage after a little out of car investigation, little tip as you come past the pub on the left, look straight through the car park there are two cottages facing the beer garden Bodfan is on the left of the two.
As soon as we stepped in we felt like we had just come home! Such a nice friendly warm feeling to the place, within minutes we had a fire going in the lounge log burner (wood courtesy of the owner). The cottage is a good size and all rooms are well presented and very homely. Both bedrooms are of a good size and you could sleep for adults very comfortably, the bathroom again is all you need, clean, decent bath and a good shower, the kitchen is very well equipped with all the bits n bobs you need to create your culinary delights with.
Location wise, it’s 5 minutes from the coast and 25 minutes from the Snowdon massif, within very easy reach of Betws y coed, Beddgelert, Llanberis and so much more.
The landlady was in touch shortly after the booking was confirmed and you got the sensation that if we needed anything she was but a call away although we never did.
We throughly enjoyed our 4 nights at Bodfan and are already looking at return dates for spring 22. Summing up lovely little cottage in a very convenient location and definitely worth a stay or two

Lovely location for exploring surrounding area, plenty of places to visit including a river walk from the cottage and Criccieth beach nearby.
Cottage was comfortable, clean and with everything you needed. We found the pub friendly and a great place to unwind after a long walk
