Holiday Cottage Near Harlech | Hengaeau

Near BeachFarm Stay

Another hidden gem nestling among the mountains of the Snowdonia National Park. This holiday cottage near Harlech has two bedrooms on the ground floor and is a perfect retreat for people looking to get away from it all.

It’s quite a new build so all the essentials are well taken care of. Efficient central heating, unlimited hot water, a fully fitted kitchen and spotlessly clean throughout. The lounge is comfortably furnished and include a traditional and handsome welsh dresser and I’m sure most guests will spend a lot of time with the large patio doors thrown open so as to make the most of the view. The cottage looks out onto the northern slopes of Moelfre and the Rhinog mountain range which stretch out towards Barmouth and the Mawddach Estuary. And cow watching is much more fun than people watching.

There’s separate dining area which sits five or more quite comfortably. The adjoining kitchen is quite small but it has everything you’d need including a dishwasher and washing machine. There’s a large bathroom with shower over bath. One twin bedroom room and finally, a large family bedroom with king sized bed and an extra single bed if required. Opening the curtains in this south facing bedroom every morning is sure to be one of your favourite bits of the holiday.

Floor Plans




I say this about a lot of our cottages. But the location really couldn’t be much better. The cottage sits above the pretty little seaside village of Llanfair on the Cambrian coast. You climb up a small lane out of the village before winding your way back down a private driveway to the farm. The nearest beach, Llandanwg, is one of our favourites, with its little rock pools to one side and sandy dunes on the other. The historic castle town of Harlech is about 2 miles to the north. There are three or four pubs in the town as well as a selection of restaurants. There’s also the castle of course and the famous St David’s links golf course.

If you decide to stay, you must also find the time to drive a little further up the lane to Cwm Bychan and the magical lake up there. It’s a beautiful spot and offers some fantastic wild trout fishing. Other popular activities in the area include mountain biking and walking of course.

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at Hengaeau. The peace and quiet, the scenery and the welcome was just what we needed to switch off for a few days after a busy winter and lambing. The cakes were a lovely surprise too, absolutely beautiful. We’ll definitely be back. Thank you both.

A gem of a cottage with beautiful views and scenery, In a quiet secluded setting but with support close by if required.

A most enjoyable holiday.

This property is outstanding in every way. My parents commented that this was the best holiday cottage they had ever stayed in: “Everything works” (and they have stayed in a lot of UK cottages over the years). High standards of comfort and attention to detail. We had the most wonderful week. Beautiful landscapes, birdsong, fresh air – so peaceful. The views were stunning from the living room, patio and bedrooms. The weather was good so the patio was a perfect place for morning coffee, cup of tea in the afternoon when we got back, wine/beer in the evening sun. There is no light pollution so saw wonderful stars in the night sky. You have beach and mountains in close proximity – the track to the farm had stunning views of the coast. Idyllic. We did not want to leave. Helen and Ted were the most wonderful hosts – so welcoming, generous and helpful. We feel so lucky to have stayed here. Helen´s Bara Brith is also the best – my Dad is a connoisseur. We will return. Top marks on every level.

If anyone is looking for a holiday with peace and tranquility look no further than Llanfair cottage.The cottage is superb, comfortable,well furnished and equipped with everything you could need.A very warm welcome from Helen made us feel at home right away .After days out touring the countryside it was lovely to return to the cottage and sit and enjoy the views from the window or the patio with nothing to disturb the peace and serenity except for the sheep roaming round.Thanks to Helen and Ed.Hope to return.

Had a fantastic stay here. The location of this superb cottage is quite stunning. Has everything you would need. Just like home from home. Had a lovely warm welcome from Helen on arrival. The cake and flowers were a very nice gesture. If you are in need of a relaxing holiday or even a walking one this is ideal, the best of both worlds. The weather was very good to us. The beach at Harlech is lovely to have a long walk on. Spent time just relaxing watching the cows which at times are quite comical. Would definitely recommend and we are hoping to return.

Spent a restful week at this fantastic well equipped and comfortable cottage.Country side and cows to be seen sitting on the patio or through the floor to ceiling patio windows.Flowers and a super Bara Brith cake welcomed us to the spacious cottage with leather chairs and a huge tele good for watching the World Cup.The views on the track to the cottage were amazing over the coast and small estuary where you could walk ,visit the cafe or sit on the beach.Toilets as well.All the coast round here is amazing….and a must visit is Harlech castle with cafe which had views to the Snowdonia hills.Have run out of superlatives for this cottage and surrounding area.Come and find out for yourself.

We had a lovely stay. Fantastic cottage with beautiful views and very peaceful. Cakes were delicious and Helen very helpful. I left my computer mouse which Helen kindly sent to my home address. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need and is spotless throughout. We enjoyed it so much we booked again for November before we left which says it all really.

A fantastic cottage in a superb location. Cleanliness 10/10 and Helen was very helpful on our arrival. The home made Victoria sandwich cake was an added bonus. Definitely will re visit in the near future.

We had a fantastic week at this stunning cottage. Helen the owner so welcoming & should be competing in the Great British Bake Off. Her freshly baked Victoria sponge was excellent.
Spotlessly clean, high quality, comfortable pretty cottage, wifi perfect and appreciated as it’s very remote. Quiet and peaceful never slept so well even though we were lucky enough to be there during the recent very hot heatwave.
Sitting having breakfast on the pretty patio in the morning and enjoying the afternoon sunshine was lovely.
Will never forget our holiday in a beautiful hidden gem. Wow!!!
