One Bedroom Cottage on a Working Welsh Farm | Gegin-Faeldre

Near BeachNear PubFarm Stay

This pretty one bedroom cottage on a working welsh farm is a great base for couples wanting to explore the mountains and coast of Snowdonia. This beautifully appointed and private annexe to the main farmhouse offers luxurious accommodation whilst providing a taste of idyllic rural life. But don’t worry, the owners won’t make you get up at the crack of dawn to feed the sheep. Unless you really want to of course.

We enter the cottage through a private front door to the north of the main farmhouse into a large entrance hall. A convenient ground floor wc with washbasin sits behind a lovely oak ledge and brace door right in front, but we turn left to enter the living room.

A big open plan space where the living room to the right is separated by rail and breakfast bar from the larger kitchen diner area. A large leather sofa and coffee table sits in front of a large wall mounted flat screen TV. A big Georgian style window in the wall fills this space with a lovely light from outside.

The richly coloured and warm oak floor stretches back through into the kitchen area. Here, a lovingly restored and original Aga cooking range takes pride of place. More modern kitchen units stretch out to the left and ensures that all the expected modern day appliances are also accommodated. A small round dining table and pastel coloured moulded plastic chairs sit on the rear wall.

An oak bannister and carpeted stairs leads us up to the double bedroom above. Here, a relaxing king sized bed sits under the eaves of the cottage. Exposed beams and a section of the original stone wall provides a sense of character and place and a large Velux window ensures that plenty of light floods the room each morning.

The adjoining bathroom adds the wow factor to this accommodation. A huge double shower with matching white porcelain bathroom set rests on a plush blue-slate floor. A large wall mirror behind the sink finishes the room off nicely.

Floor Plans




Great views of the Cambrian coastline and the Llyn Peninsula beyond are afforded from the private courtyard and small lawned area right in front of the cottage. A neighbouring small outhouse provides plenty of storage for bikes and kayaks etc as the provided BBQ.

Llanbedr is the nearest village about a mile to the north. There are a couple of pubs here as well as a cafe and small grocery store. More choice is offered if you travel a little further up the coast to Harlech. The famous castle dominates this pretty little town and is an obvious draw for many guests.

About 5 miles to the south, Barmouth is that quintessential Victorian seaside town with a fantastic mix of smiling kids, fish and chips and acres of clean sandy beach. These days, the huge array of adventure activities on offer in the area draws just as many people as the beautiful sandy coastline. Everything from mountain biking, zip lining, gorge walking and rock climbing are all available. Although a quiet walk in the mountains behind the farmhouse is still my favourite.

This was our second visit to Gegin Faeldre, which perhaps speaks for itself. This lovely cottage
has everything we need and we enjoyed a peaceful and restful stay. Despite some wet and windy
weather, we managed to get out to some of the many delightful walks in the area. The hosts are
very friendly, never obtrusive and always ready to help if needed. If we return to this area, Gegin Faeldre
will be our first choice and we can highly recommend it.

We have just spent a fantastic week at Gegin-Faeldre, the weather was glorious, we spent evenings in the garden watching the amazing sunsets , the cottage is emaculate, very well presented. Stylish & comfy. I loved the Aga, thank you Donna & Llion for being so welcoming.

Just returned from our second stay at this lovely cottage and found it just as peaceful and clean as before. Donna and Llion were very helpful and we even had pretty good weather! We found the WiFi mainly works in the lounge area or the downstairs cloakroom so maybe a WiFi booster would be helpful to get a signal upstairs but other than that a lovely stay again.

We had a lovely stay here in June. The cottage has everything you could possibly need, is well furnished, stylish and comfortable. The owners are lovely & make you feel very welcome. I was a little anxious about the Aga, but the instructions were clear and it was extremely easy to use! I had read comments that possibly it would make it too hot inside on a sunny day but we had one really hot day and this wasn’t the case at all. Hopefully we will be able to return here again in the not too distant future. We have now had several Dioni cottages and they have all been excellent!

We have had a lovely time at Gegin Faeldre and happy that Covid rules were in place with a great deal of thought into their implementation. The cottage was really nice and very well presented. The weather was in our favour which is always good.We visited a lot of lovely places in and around the area , all of which were adhering to the Covid rules which gives you confidence to visit.It was lovely to come back to the welcoming cottage and sit outside to observe the fantastic sunsets and farm animals. The Wifi may have been a bit week, 2-5mbps (although you can get 6mbps in the small toilet) we had anticipated this so did not see it as a huge problem & were able to get Sky Go if needed.
We hope to return to North Wales in the future and the Gegin will be our first choice. Thank you Donna and Llion.

Just returned from our second stay at Gegin Faeldre. Donna and Llion are great hosts (thanks for the bottle of wine to help us celebrate our anniversary) and the cottage was very clean with all mod cons available. From the cottage you can easily access the many attractions and sights that North Wales has to offer. Our only suggestion for improvement is to purchase a wi-fi booster as internet did drop off on occasions. We will definitely return in the future.

Had a fantastic time. Cottage was lovely. Very clean and tidy and in a beautiful setting. Everything we needed was there. Second visit and would return again. Owners were also very welcoming.

it was a joy to come into a cottage that was warm and welcoming after a day in the hills. It was quality accommodation at an affordable price.

We were lucky to be able to stay for a week at Gegin Faeldre in mid October, just before the government re instated the lockdown. The accommodation was well designed, refurbished to a high standard, peaceful, quiet and very clean. With underfloor heating and the Aga, it was warm and cosy too. The farm is in a perfect location for taking walks or cycle rides into the nearby hills and it’s also close to the Mawddach trail. We even had mainly dry weather, so we could be out most days. We had a lovely time.
