Two Bedroom North Wales Holiday Cottage | Derwin-Fawr

Near PubFarm StayEV Charger

Derwin-Fawr is traditional detached two-bedroom North Wales holiday cottage on a working farm on the western edge of the Snowdonia National Park. It’s central location allows guest to enjoy the mountains of Eryri (Snowdonia) as well as the famous sandy beaches of the Llyn Peninsula. But we should explore inside the cottage first.

The front door leads us into a large kitchen diner. Traditional fitted units house a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer and electric oven and hob. The owners of the cottage have been successfully running holiday cottages for years so you can rest assured that all the utensils and kitchen appliances you need are included.

From here we step through into the lounge. Newly decorated and always immaculately clean, as it should be. A comfortable sofa and two large armchairs sit under a wooden beamed ceiling. A TV and fire face each other at the far end of the room and an open staircase leads us up to the first floor bedrooms.

Two bedrooms in total. The master double bedroom has a lovely glass door facing out onto the surrounding lawn and a high vaulted ceiling. The second bedroom houses 3 single beds in addition to a large wardrobe and matching bedside tables.

The cottage is in a great location for exploring the two different sides to North Wales. The towering mountains of Eryri (Snowdonia) can be seen to the west whilst the gentler slopes and sandy beaches of the Llyn Peninsula stretch out to the East. Depending on energy levels guests might consider a short drive to Cwm Pennant, a great starting point for an ascent of the magnificent Nantlle Ridge. A cycle or walk on the popular Lon Eifion path with stretches from the front door to Caernarfon. Or, on a more lazy afternoon, you might head down to Criccieth and enjoy an ice cream on the beach.

Nearby towns include the historic Caernarfon and it’s famous castle to the north and Porthmadog, a bustling harbour town popular with many tourists, to the south. Both towns boast a good selection of pubs and restaurants.

Lots of things to do in the area. Bring your bike to take advantage of the Lon Eifion cycle path or why not hire one? Plus traditional pastimes such as walking, fishing and golf now sit alongside adventure-type activities such as quad biking, paint balling and sea kayaking. Historical tours of castles and mines now happy to share the landscape zip line, mountain biking and gorge walking courses. As the brochure would say, plenty for all the family!

Guest Reviews


We had a lovely week in Derwin Fawr. A real home from home, but with a better view! We had everything we needed and were very comfortable. Cottage is even more spacious than we expected. Great location in terms of lots of attractions and interesting places and nice beaches within 30 to 45 minutes’ drive and pub 5 minutes away. We had a packed week and a very happy holiday!

Clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage in a great location for getting around the area. Not a long way from the main road but still incredibly peaceful and restful. Hopefully we’ll get back in the the next 12 months. Booking process through Dioni was also quick and easy.

Derwin-Fawr is a very clean, cosy and well equipped cottage. A welcome pack of Welsh cakes, tea, milk, sugar and wine were waiting for our arrival which was a very nice gesture from the hosts Owena and Arwel. The location is perfect to explore the peninsula and we truly had the best time. Thanks for a great stay.

We did enjoy our stay at the lovely cottage Derwin Fawr. The cottage was very clean, cosy and with beautiful views. We did appreciate the welcome surprise and the peace while reading a book in the garden. The cottage is well situated to visit Criccieth castle, Porthmadog, Caernarfon castle, cosy Beddgelert… and to do some wonderful walks in the snowdonia national park. We were sad to leave after a week that flew by. It was worth the long ride from Belgium!


A lovely cosy cottage, heaven to come home to after a wet and windy day on the hills or on the beach. Being so close to everything that North Wales has to offer yet not caught in the tourist madness is wonderful.

We had a gorgeous week at Derwin-Fawr. The house is perfect for a family of 4 or 5 and has everything you might need. It’s perfectly located to explore so many different areas, including the Llyn Peninsula, Anglesey, Snowdonia, there is a cycle path really close by, and we enjoyed a lovely walk from the doorstep. We had to arrange for something to be sent from home, and the owners were so obliging, and brought it round as soon as it arrived in the post. We would highly recommend this property.

We had a lovely time at Derwin Fawr, being where it is we found it to be perfectly situated for exploring the local area, your not far from some fantastic beaches in one direction and the mountains in the other. Would definitely recommend eating at the Seaview bistro in Borth y Gest and a walk round to the beach along the coast path. Also fish and chips at Dinas Dinlle whilst watching the sunset is perfect. Harlech is beautiful in itself teamed with an awesome beach its a must. Swimming in the waterfalls on the Watkin path on a hot day is a must but does get bit busy. The cottage it’s self was perfect very well equipped and homely and the welcome gifts were a really nice touch especially the welsh cakes. All in all a really good week and would definitely recommend a stay.
