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.

Rebecca Harrison

I booked the accommodation as a gift for my parents and this is what they said – What a delightful bungalow, situated in a small quite cul-de-sac. My husband and I couldn’t have wished for anything better. It was so warm, clean and extremely comfortable. The kitchen was outstanding with every appliance you could wish for, even a vase of flowers and a bottle of wine on the table. It was the ideal base for visiting/ exploring the area. We shall definitely be going back in the near future.

Sian Jones

Perfect location for exploring North Wales and an exceptionally comfortable bungalow. I would highly recommend and will definitely plan to visit again now I have found this gem!

Anne Hamilton

Beautiful bungalow with every comfort , spotless and in a really quiet area.
In a lovely part of Wales with lovely beaches and mountains all within easy driving distance

Jane Strutt

What a delight to stay at this lovely property. It was clean, comfortable and had everything we possibly could have wished for. We had a 3 night stay and visited nearby Harlech and Portmeirion and Benar Beach is just a few minutes drive away – pristine beach accessed via boardwalk through sand dunes (which made this beach accessible for my elderly Mum with mobility issues). An hour’s drive found us boarding the steam train up Snowdon after which we drove to Blaenau Ffestiniog for a quick zip down Titan. Great base for so many places. Property owner was friendly and helpful and we definitely plan on returning to Wernfach.

Jean Jackman

We have just spent a wonderful week in this beautiful bungalow, it is so well equipped , with everything you could need. As we had travelled a long distance it was great to have milk, tea and coffee and a bottle of wine on arrival. Sian contacted me beforehand to make sure we knew where we were going which was lovely. It was so peaceful at the bungalow. We also had great communication from Dioni when booking so thank you for a stress free holiday!
