Luxury Farmhouse in Mountain Location | Cwmain

Real Fire

Cwmain is an 18th century luxury farmhouse in a mountain location. This traditional stone built welsh cottage has been recently refurbished to a very high standard and sits in an idyllic location high up in the hills of North Wales. Modern facilities such as underfloor heating and fitted kitchen units sit comfortably along side carefully retained character features.

A large entrance hall leads off to a joyful playroom, a spacious utility room complete with washing machine and tumble dryer, a convenient ground floor WC and then finally a wonderful country cottage kitchen. The kitchen includes some nice cream fitted units under a dark work surface all sitting on a quarry-tiled floor. An impressive cooking range sits to one side of the room whilst a large fridge freezer stands proudly near the window. The kitchen is also large enough to accommodate a small breakfast table and chairs. A separate larder ensures that there’s plenty of room for all the supplies that your family will need during your stay.

Family diners can have no better stage than the adjoining dining room. A large oval table is surrounded by some beautiful wooden chairs. A small log fire within a stone helps create a wonderful cozy atmosphere helped, of course, by the warm floor tiles. Some antique furniture and beautiful side lamps add a real touch of class to the room.

The lounge houses another log fire. A larger version this time sitting within a striking inglenook fireplace. A large flat screen tv sits to one side and a sumptuous wrap around sofa curves around the opposite two walls. Some lovely wall lighting and a sash window overlooking the surrounding fields provides light.

We return to the dining room to climb the stairs to the first floor. 5 bedrooms in total. Two double rooms, two twin rooms and one smaller child’s room with some bunk beds. All the bedrooms are beautifully furnished. A perfect mix of colours and fabrics has created individual rooms with their own character whilst sharing a real sense of style and grace. Outdone only by the views from the windows perhaps.

The master bedroom at the far end of the house has its own en-suite bathroom with modern shower. Two more family bathrooms on this floor. One of which has a large enamelled bath in addition to the WC and washbasin. The second family bathroom has a shower, WC and washbasin.

As described, the cottage is in an idyllic location. Fields of grazing sheep surround the cottage with panoramic views in every direction beyond. Peace and tranquility is guaranteed and guests are encouraged to explore the surrounding countryside by foot whenever possible.

A 20 minute car journey south however will bring you to the town of Bala. Bala is a charming example of a welsh market town and a wonderful mix of traditional welsh culture and contemporary shops and cafés. The surrounding area has long established itself as a Mecca for adventure activities. You will pass the world renowned Tryweryn white water centre on the way into town. Fishing, sailing and windsurfing can also be enjoyed enjoyed on Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake). The Coed Y Brenin Mountain Biking centre is about half an hour further on.

Sitting as it does on the Eastern edge of the National Park, this part of Snowdonia has the natural benefit of being easily accessible from the English road network. If you continue a little further west however visitors to the cottage can be in the popular tourist town of Betws Y Coed, catching a steam train from Blaenau Ffestiniog or ascending the slopes of Wyddfa (Snowdon) from Llanberis.

Wonderful stay in beautiful surroundings. Cannot recommend enough. Fully equipped house with loads of space for a big party. A very helpful and kind host, nothing more you can ask of. Will definitely come again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cwmain cottage last weekend. We were a group of 10 including three kids. Kids enojyed the play room and the outdoors too. Rooms were clean, beds were very comfortable, kitchen and utility room are great. Scenic views at the door step. Convenient location too for exploring surrounding areas such as Betws-y-Coed, Bala and Ogwen Valley. On our last day, we witnessed the Sheep shearing in the barn opposite and as kids never saw it before, they enjoyed it. Idyllic overall. Certain that we will plan another visit next year. Thank you so much.


We really enjoyed our stay at Cwmain farmhouse cottage. It was perfect for two families and although very spacious, it was very cosy and had absolutely everything you could need – a home away from home. I also cannot rate the beds highly enough, we all slept so incredibly well!!! Perfect for a rural and peaceful escape in the countryside. Would highly recommend and hopefully we will be back someday.

Cwmain is a beautiful farmhouse. Very comfortable. It has everything needed for a short or long stay. It’s in the middle of stunning countryside and is very remote.

As anticipated from the pics and videos, the farmhouse was gorgeous both in location as well as interior setup. The only (and daily) niggle was the half mile or so of gravel/mud road which we had to carefully tread on with our hatchbacks – not sure it was advertised.
Other than that, the accomodation itself was very thoughtfully and tastefully prepped and we had a wonderful time! Many Thanks!

Lovely rural farm house which my whole family stayed in. Enough space for all of us. The kids especially loved the toy room, couldn’t get them out of there at times, this was a very nice touch and good use of the space that the house has

A beautiful farmhouse in a stunning location; peaceful and rural. The decor is great and all the rooms have character and charm. Really well equipped kitchen and lots of space for the 8 of us. No need for the play room for our group but would definitely be great for young families. we had a fantastic stay, helped by the gorgeous sunshine. Only downside was the difficulty unlocking the door with the key provided as it took some wriggling and a bit of strength, but otherwise, perfect.

We loved it! Our stay was amazing. We were 2 families in this property. Very comfortable. Enough room for all of us (4 adults and 5 kids). The kitchen was great. The play room was really nice for the kids. Reduced screen time 🙂 We really had a fantastic time. Thank you!!

Beautifully located spacious farmhouse with plenty of space for our 2 families (we were with 8 people). Surrounded by beautiful scenery, sheep, cows and real in nature.

What a fantastic family accommodating cottage. We were a party of 9 adults celebrating a 60th birthday. Had a fantastic 3 nights. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything thought of and the larder was excellent for keeping the refreshments in and the cake🍾🥂 🎂 The standard of furnishings and every room including bathrooms was perfect… incl towels and bedding. Very secluded and down a long large stoned drive with lots of sheep and 2 gates to open each time you go out but we managed it -although very slowly. Beautiful views and sunsets and no neighbours to upset! We will certainly be going again thank you so much 👏🏼
