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.

What a great find this cottage is – very warm, comfortable, clean and oh so quiet. We had a real mixed bag of weather during our stay including Storm Agnes but had sunny days to visit Portmeirion, Harlech Castle and beach and the amazing Nantcol Waterfalls.
Even on the wet days the view from the lounge was amazing – the mountains, sea in the distance and the friendly cows staring at us from the nearby field!
The Bara Brith was a welcome addition. Would definitely stay here again

We had a wonderful holiday in your cottage. The only suggestion we would have is the provision of some basic condiments.


We really enjoyed our stay in Hengaeau. We had a week at the end of August and we made the most of our time there. The weather was wet in the mornings mostly, but brightened up later. So we had beach days in Harlech and Barmouth, enjoyed a walk down to Harlech Castle and made trips to Borth y Gest and Porthmadog. There really is so much to do. The cottage itself was so comfortable and clean. It had so many little extras to help enjoy your time there. We enjoyed bbqs and meals on the patio. The WiFi was an added bonus (it allowed me to work from holiday with no issues at all). The chocolate cake and fruit shoots on arrival were also a huge hit and the hosts were on hand if needed. Definitely recommend and we will hopefully make a return trip.

It was a very lovely cottage, the host Helen is a wonderful lady. The cake that awaited us was very tasty.
Very clean, had wonderful view. A place to relax with all amenities.
The only suggestion that I may have, again it is my very personal suggestion is that could do with few beer glasses/mugs and if the tub/shower glass maybe extended with a curtain as it would help the water not splash out of the tub. The shower itself is good and remains hot continually.
Overall, if we again go to Harlech area, we will try and secure the same cottage.


Absolutely fabulous week in this lovely cottage.
Perfect surroundings, lovely wildlife, everything you need for a relaxing break.
We had fantastic weather which made it better. But even so it really was brilliant.

Just had a great week at this cottage. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Beautiful views of the mountains from the patio and so peaceful and relaxing.Helen and Edward were very friendly and helpful,and the Bara Brith was the best .

Sarah Yates

We come here most years and absolutely love it everytime. The cottage is extremely comfortable with beautiful views in a wonderfully quiet location, there is no other place to stay and we will be back again next year

Jeff Poulton

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.

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.
