You’ll find it on the edge of Dyffryn Ardudwy, a coastal village flanked by the Rhinog mountains to the east and the Irish Sea to the west.

The front door opens into a small hallway, with a handy cloakroom cupboard for coats, bags and shoes. From there you will find a large kitchen diner which is a lovely bright space and extremely well equipped, including an electric oven and hob. A dining table seats four, and there is wooden flooring throughout.

The living room is also bright and a very decent size, and comes with a deeply comfortable leather sofa and two snugglesome armchairs. These are arranged around a cast iron wood burner which comes with a supply of logs, and there is a smart TV. Everything you need for a relaxing evening after a day of exploring.

The bedrooms – one double and one twin – are extremely comfortable and beautifully presented, with lovely fabrics and furnishings used throughout. There is a lovely family bathroom with a large walk in shower and separate bath.

Outside this stylish two bedroom bungalow in Dyffryn Ardudwy, you’ll find a private lawned garden with a nice patio space and dining furniture for al fresco food and drinks.

A quiet, rural village located on the beautiful west coast of the Snowdonia National Park, Dyffryn Ardudwy is home to a thriving farming community and is a popular holiday destination. The stunning mountain backdrop is dotted with generations-old Welsh hill farms.

The village is within a very easy drive of the Llyn Peninsula, Harlech, Barmouth, Dolgellau, Porthmadog, Criccieth and Portmeirion. Flanked by the Rhinog mountains to the east and the Irish Sea to the west, you can expect epic sunsets and rugged, timeless landscapes.

Drive around ten minutes south from the cottage to get to Barmouth’s sandy Blue Flag beach which stretches for two miles and is perfect for picnics, swimming, paddling and surfing. There is traditional seaside fun along the promenade, and plenty of shops, cafés, restaurants, pubs and ice cream parlours.

A little further south beyond Barmouth will bring you to Dolgellau, home to the Coed Y Brenin mountain biking centre, where you can bring your own bike or hire one from the Beics Brenin visitor centre. There are eight trails ranging from blue to black, so something for the whole family. There are also excellent running and walking trails through the woods.

Harlech, which is around six miles to the north – is a short drive or a very pleasant walk along the Wales Coastal Path. Harlech is home to a clifftop UNESCO World Heritage Site medieval castle, and one of the best links golf courses in the UK at Royal St David’s. Its hills and winding lanes provide plenty of nooks and crannies to explore, and some great places to eat for a decent lunch, afternoon tea or dinner.

The coastline near Dyffryn Ardudwy is one of sandy dunes and marram grass. Your closest beach – Benar Beach – is around a mile, or a twenty minute walk away. It is a great place for a picnic and a paddle, but also a bit of a hidden gem for surfing and bodyboarding. Expect consistent rolling waves and beautiful views of the Gwynedd coastline stretching to the north and south.

There’s easy access to many of Snowdonia’s most popular attractions and destinations from this stylish two bedroom bungalow in Dyffryn Ardudwy. They include Zip World, Bounce Below and the Llechwedd Deep Mine experience at Blaenau Ffestiniog. The enchanting village of Portmeirion, with its Italianate follies, interesting shops, famous chinaware, cafés and beautiful gardens, is a 30 minute drive.

If you prefer to keep things lo-fi on your hols, you’re in great walking country. The Rhinog mountains offer some of the most spectacular landscapes in the UK with all-shades-of-satisfying routes and no shortage of spectacular spots for a picnic. Take a look at our blog for some Rhinog walking inspiration.

To kick off your local exploring, and to get a sense of the timelessness of these ancient landscapes, walk through the nearby Coed Cors y Gedol (Cors y Gedol Woodland) on the edge of the village to the prehistoric burial chamber at Cors y Gedol – it dates to somewhere between 4,200BC and 3,000BC. This is a really special place – the beautiful oak woodland – a ‘temperate rainforest ‘ is a Special Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI) and one of the most important woodland conservation areas in Europe.

We had a wonderful 2 weeks at Wernfach, we didn’t want to leave for home! The house is comfortable, clean and has everything you could possibly need. The location of the house is ideal for the local beach and for Barmouth. We will definitely be back!

Margaret Ellis

A very comfortable bungalow in a quiet location, but handy for local shops. A lane directly across the main road leads to a beautiful stretch of beach with a new boardwalk enabling easier access to the beach.

Deborah Anne Wallace

Beautiful bungalow, spotlessly clean and immaculately presented. Very comfortable and homely, superbly equipped. Good location for numerous days out in this stunning part of Snowdonia. Genuinely friendly property owner. The only downside was not being able to stay longer! Would certainly recommend as 5* accommodation. Diolch yn fawr 🙂
