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.

Floor Plans




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 Snowdon from Llanberis.

The holiday cottage is lovely and has every amenity you could want. The cottage is a little remote but the plus side to this is that you have the most amazing views. We would definitely recvomend the cottage. One thing to be noted is the long road down to the farm which you need to take slowly. We had an amazing time and visited lots of places which were within half to 1 hour away.

A wonderful stay in this beautiful cottage! As a large group, we really appreciated the excellent facilities, including a huge fridge, lots of freezer space, high quality washing machine and dryer, plenty of bathrooms/toilets and fantastic variety of toys and books. We loved the breathtaking views and amazing variety of scenery only a short walk/drive away. The owners were really helpful, even posting an item to us that we had left behind. Many thanks! Definitely recommend this lovely home away from home.

We had a lovely few days are Cwmein, lovely cottage in glorious countryside. Plenty of space and really lovely decor throughout. We climbed Snowdon and walked near Bala lake & visited Port Merion. Lovely remote spot as a change from lockdown, thanks.

Lovely cottage – nice rooms. Good location (be warned it is 10 mins drive down a very long a slow driveway beyond the postcode). very remote which is great. It is not clear how private it is – and it is very private. Lovely. We saw a farmer twice and that was it. The only criticism is that we went for a working week away (with colleagues) and the broadband was not useable. We ended up using 4G from our phones instead (great phone signal) but this cost us money. SO maybe just don’t expect the broadband to be good enough to use properly.

The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. It is ideal for children with a safe environment for them to explore freely. We stayed here as 3 family groups coming together for a celebration and it provided a perfect set up for this.
Would thoroughly recommend the white water rafting experience nearby – expensive but awesome!

We had a fantastic stay. Beautiful house, very spacious with lots of traditional features. The property has everything we needed for 10 staying. The surrounding scenery was amazing and access to lots of the fantastic activists that Wales had to offer not to far away. Served had a great time.

We stayed at Cwmain over Feb half term. It was perfect for 2 families and plenty of space for everyone. Beautifully decorated and really well equipped, the kids loved the playroom and we had everything we needed. Loved that the location was slightly remote, tucked away in the hills with lovely views but it was so easy to access all the best bits of Snowdonia. We enjoyed amazing weather for February and would like to return! Thank you.

Just returned from an amazing week at Cwmain. The house and setting is just beautiful. It had everything we needed, playroom for the kids, stunning bedrooms, games and above all it felt like the ultimate getaway. Far enough away from civilisation yet close enough to drive to shops and for days out. We loved the board games, full 4g signal for the kids tablets and sitting reading bedtime stories in the huge windowsills. We are definitely going to return and can’t wait. Thank you for a great week x

We have just come back from a long weekend at Cwmain with a group of eight friends, it is the perfect place for a group holiday. The house is spacious and beautifully finished and felt like a home immediately. Although the description says that it’s on a working farm, we never heard or saw anyone, it was the perfect quiet getaway. It’s a great location for exploring the area, you’re not far from so many stunning places. And if there’s a rainy day, what a great excuse to stay in front of the fire or cook up big meals in that lovely well equipped kitchen. I would love to come back for another stay…soon!
