This farm holiday accommodation with mountain views is super-stylish and luxurious. A beautiful barn conversion on the stunning Llyn Peninsula, it sleeps up to seven guests in four bedrooms.

The location of this cottage is pretty hard to beat. Tucked away in the peaceful Llyn countryside, yet easily accessible from the main Caernarfon to Porthmadog highway, it is the perfect escape for anyone in search of a restorative North Wales getaway.

The cottage occupies its own private plot next to a working farm, and is surrounded by rolling Llyn countryside. It comes with a large garden, far reaching views of the Eryri (Snowdonia) mountains, and – on a clear night – some of the most beautiful starry skies you could ever hope to gaze at.

It has been recently renovated to the highest standards. Nice touches like luxurious fabrics, comfortable leather armchairs and a great library of books give it the look and feel of an elegant boutique hotel. It is a bright, roomy cottage, with plenty of space for guests to socialise and spread out.

Downstairs at this farm holiday accommodation with mountain views, you’ll find a large sitting room with wooden floors and exposed oak beam. A comfortable sofa and a couple of leather armchairs are arranged around a toasty woodburner. There is a great library of books to dip into, and a wall-mounted TV.

Sliding glass doors from the sitting room lead through to a large sunroom, which is home to two more super-comfy sofas and magnificent panoramic views of the Llyn countryside and Eryri (Snowdonia) mountains. A glazed door opens out onto a dining terrace, with a lawned garden beyond.

The kitchen diner is spectacular, with gleaming granite work surfaces, a breakfast bar, large dining table and Aga range cooker. There is also an electric cooker if you prefer to cook with that, and a large fridge freezer. A separate utility room with an external door to the garden is super-handy for managing muddy shoes and clothes.

The cottage layout is slightly quirky, with two lovely double bedrooms downstairs, as well one bathroom with large walk in shower and a second large bathroom with a roll top bath. All of these rooms are beautifully presented.

Upstairs you will find two further bedrooms, one with twin beds, and one very decent sized single room. These bedrooms sit under the eaves, and with exposed wooden beams and apex ceilings (the head room is decent) are really cosy, attractive spaces.

Out in the garden, there is plenty of space to relax and enjoy. As well as the dining terrace, there are two lawned areas. There is a low stone wall around the property which allows uninterrupted views of the spectacular landscapes on all sides.

Location

 

The cottage is ideally placed for easy access to many of the region’s attractions. Ideal for anyone who enjoys nature and being active in the outdoors, it is close to the Lôn Efion cycle path and the Y Lôn Goed walking trail, as well as many of the region’s best adventures and attractions.

On the Llyn Peninsula you’re never far from a spectacular beach, and the seaside town of Criccieth is within an easy 15 minute drive of the cottage, with Abersoch, Llanbedrog, Porthdinllaen and Morfa Nefyn 20-30 minutes away.

The Llyn is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and one of Britain’s oldest pilgrimage routes. On both counts it’s not hard to see why. An exceptional and dramatic shoreline of coves, cliffs, bays, secret sandy beaches, offshore islands and stacks, wild beating waves – it’s a picture of what an idyllic coastal wilderness might look like.

At Criccieth, you’ll find traditional Welsh tearooms, some great places to eat out, as well as some very decent fish & chips. Expect attractive independent shops and some wonderfully browsable galleries and antiques. There’s even a traditional Welsh clog maker who still has his workshop in the town. Oh, and a medieval castle to watch over it all. It’s a great place to explore.

The Llyn’s sandy beaches and sheltered bays are brilliant playgrounds for all sorts of watersports including kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, SUPing and surfing – but they’re also great for the more traditional seaside pursuits of paddling, swimming, rock pooling and sandcastling.

This farm holiday accommodation with mountain views is a short drive from some great family activities and adventures, including the petting zoo at Dwyfor Ranch Rabbit Farm (10 minutes), Glasfryn Parc, karting and wakeboarding centre (20 minutes), and Bounce Below, Zip World and Llechwedd slate mine at Blaenau Ffestiniog (40 minutes).

For slightly more grown up days out, head to Portmeirion and its Italian style fantasy village (25 minutes), or Harlech with its steep winding streets and UNESCO-listed 13th century fortress (35 minutes). Or how about a day out on a steam railway? The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland railway are a splendid way to see North Wales.

There are more beaches than you could ever reasonably hope to explore on the Llyn Peninsula, but one of our favourites has to be at Porthdinllaen near Nefyn. It’s home to a beautifully sheltered sandy bay and what is consistently voted one of the best bars in the world – the Ty Coch Inn. An idyllic place for a pint and a ploughman’s, but check opening times before you visit.

Had a fabulous week at Eiddior the cottage is lovely the views are spectacular
Our hosts Mererid & Elis were so nice & friendly. The only thing we was disappointed with was that the rayburn wasn’t working would definitely recommend this cottage .

We chose Eiddior to take our parents away as our wedding gift to them. We all loved the location set in the country side with valley views all the way round. The home itself was beautifully presented and laid out. The perfect blend of a modern and a traditional home. The owners were more than friendly and approachable. They even offered to show our little 2 year old boy to see a baby cow that had recently been born. He even got to sit in the tractor – which we couldn’t get him off! 😂 he will always remember this trip thanks to that kind gesture. Will 100% recommend this home and Dioni.

We have just returned from a long weekend stay with the family, which included my 18mth old nephew, my mum who has mobility issues and two dogs. The accommodation itself and the location couldn’t have been more perfect for what we needed. The cottage was very lovely, decorated beautifully, relaxing and had everything we needed, including being mostly on one level, a cot and a secure garden for the dogs. The location was great in terms of the views and the quietness but only a short drive from lots of local attractions and the beaches. The communication from Mererid was excellent and I would highly recommend this cottage.

A Fantastic week at the cottage, we absolutely love North Wales and it is in an excellent location for whatever you would like to do around Snowdonia, Gwynedd or the Llyn. We also walked Y Lôn Goed as recommended on the website which we had never heard of, stunning.
Thanks to Mererid & family & also for showing us the 2 day old calf, our Grandson had an amazing time.

Just got back from a weeks stay here and we loved it. We have been staying in this area for 13 years now and meet up with friends. We have fallen unlucky a few times with our accommodation but this time we struck gold, with the property and hosts. Mererid and her husband were just lovely and nothing was too much trouble. The house is like the most beautiful tardis. The decor is gorgeous and no expense spared with this. Then you have the beautiful view which is just incredible. Thank you so much for making our holiday this year so special.

We booked Eiddior at very short notice but the hosts couldn’t have been more welcoming or helpful! The cottage was in a beautiful location with stunning views. We had rain and sunshine during our stay and and conservatory was the perfect spot to appreciate the scenery whatever the weather. The hosts gave brilliant recommendations for things to do locally and even surprised us with a bottle of Prosecco when they found out we were recently married. We couldn’t have asked for more!

We spent a wonderful Easter at this fabulous cottage, what a beautiful place, very comfortable, beautifully appointed and the 180degree view of the mountains from the conservatory was just stunning. Our favourite beach was Llanbedrog, lovely sandy beach which is dog friendly, with a fabulous cafe right on the beach which serves the most wonderful Mussels Thank you Mererid and Elis for making us so welcome. We hope to return one day soon.

Mererid is the perfect host the cottage was sumptuous and sublime. An escape from the humdrum of everyday life in a calm and peaceful setting. The views from the conservatory were amazing even on days with rain and cloud it was just perfect. Thank you for allowing us to stay and recharge our batteries. Diolch.
