Moelfre is a lovely cottage, in a beautiful, remote position. The main reason we chose it over other cottages in the area was for the EV charger, but we would certainly recommend it for anyone looking for a quiet, cosy spot away from the mainstream. There are a few other cottages on the farm – a working hill farm with some sheep, cattle and some very friendly ducks as well as the family pets. It feels secluded and private, with Louise and Gwion on site if any assistance is needed.
Despite its small footprint, it feels very spacious, largely because it is so well designed, and is light and very comfortable. A lot of thought obviously went into the layout, keeping furniture to the minimum but providing everything needed for a couple. The kitchen area is small but well-equipped, with a combined oven/microwave/grill and a two-ring hob that was sufficient for cooking all our evening meals. There is a roomy fridge (no freezer) and all the main items you would need (including toaster, cafetiere, tea pot). The shower room is spacious and the shower very efficient. The staircase up to the loft bedroom is steep, which allows for more space downstairs, but we didn’t find this a problem (although someone with limited mobility could have difficulty). The wifi is good, but there’s no mobile phone signal. We had beautiful weather (so didn’t need the wood burner or any heating) and the doors open wide onto the sunny outside seating area with gorgeous views across the fields, and to the mountain behind (from which the cottage gets its name).
Definitely a five-star holiday.

A lovely 2 week stay in a very clean and comfortable cottage. It is in the ideal place for exploring a large part of North Wales. Beautiful beaches close by. The Jack Russel and Collie dogs really helped us to feel at home and were often around to welcome us back from a day out. Very friendly hosts, with nothing being too much trouble.
Already looking for next year with dioni.
We knew the cottage was on a farm and was bijou. On the plus side, everything worked a treat; the water was hot and the shower easy to fathom. All kitchen appliances worked well (especially the fridge, it was so cold – it froze the cucumber!!). It took a while to work out the oven/microwave but we got there in the end! We liked the recycling area and easy purchasing of extra wood if required. The place was lovely and clean and the bed very comfortable. The scenery was fantastic and loved seeing the farm animals around. On the down side we found the road to the cottage very narrow indeed and with high walls on either side it was difficult to see approaching traffic – being townies we found this disconcerting. We found the stairs to the bedroom area also disconcerting and it was difficult carrying items up there. The settee was quite soft and for shorties like us the seat area was too long! We would have loved an iron/hairdryer and maybe a few extras in the kitchen, like kitchen roll and oven gloves. The duvet could have been more luxurious. Instructions on how to work the pizza oven would also have been helpful.
Once you get over the shock of the mile long country, single road drive to Moelfre, you will find a charming cottage set in beautiful surroundings. The cottage was clean, light and had a lovely bathroom and kitchen area. The daily visits from the dogs and chickens was a lovely touch. The walks and views were amazing.
The only drawback to this lovely cottage was the stairs to the mezzanine, for people like me of a certain age, not very good.
Central for the drive to Harlech and Barmouth the beach at Harlech was amazing.
We loved our stay at Moelfre it was the second time we’d stayed on the farm.
The facility is very clean and functional and offers everything you would need to escape everyday life.
The only suggestion we could think of was possibly a clock and a moveable mirror as the sockets are not near the mirror for the girlies, these are very minor things and did not affect us in any way at all.
We will most certainly be back and just wish our stay was longer
thank you very much for the bubbly as it was our honeymoon.
Diolch yn fawr iawn eich gweld chi eto :0)

We have stayed in two of the cottages on this farm. Both are quirky, comfortable and cosy. The location is rural with beautiful farm lands and hills all round, the ocean views from the outside of this particular cottage are lovely. Fresh farm eggs and a delicious homemade lemon drizzle cake were a welcome treat. We’ve been mostly lucky with the weather but even in the mist, this location is stunning and the cottage gets very warm with underfloor heating and a wood stove. There are two friendly dogs who come and go. Overall a peaceful, quiet, and much needed retreat.

A perfect 4 night stay with trips to Barmouth, Harlech and Black Sands beach (Portmadog). The welcome pack was a lovely touch, the lemon cake was delicious. The accomodation was cosy but just right for us – with the underfloor heating a winner! The location was great with the hills behind and sea in front and the farm animals were entertaining. We were lucky with great weather but the cottage hepled make our break in this lovely part of Wales first class.

A wonderful, snug little place in a beautiful location, and the perfect base for exploring, walking and relaxing. The welcome goodies (fresh farm eggs and homemade cake) were a lovely surprise and delicious.

We have been staying at Byrdir for years but this was the first time in Moelfre. This didn’t disappoint. As always Gwion and Louise are brilliant hosts and always helpful. Looking forward our next visit.

We loved our stay. So peaceful and in such a wonderful setting. We had all the amenities you could need. Amazing walks right on your doorstep and some breathtaking views. The whole of North Wales is easily accessible from here too. Thanks for a great week
