17th Century Holiday cottage with sea views in Dyffryn Ardudwy Snowdonia | Y-Felin

Dog FriendlyNear BeachHot TubReal Fire

Y Felin, 17th Century Holiday cottage with sea views in Dyffryn Ardudwy Snowdonia, is half way between Harlech and Barmouth on the Cambrian Coast road. A short grassy drive leads up to a private but sunny garden. (It never rains in Wales, honest!) Slate stepping stones guide you to the front door of this beautiful, typically asymmetrical, 17th century stone cottage.

Open the door of this holiday cottage Dyffryn Ardudwy and step onto the warm slates which cover the ground floor. (This under floor heating is a marvellous thing) Modern facilities, dishwasher, washing machine etc are combined with original features like the ledged and braced doors and exposed beams.

There’s a cosy lounge complete with obligatory inglenook or ‘simne fawr’ with cast iron log burner. Perfect for those romantic evenings cuddled up together on the couch. Upstairs there’s a modern bathroom where the complete with ceramic bath and power-shower and there’s a nice view of the cows from the bath if you leave the curtains open. The two bedrooms are nicely furnished and all the linen was crisp and clean.

Both bedrooms have window seats overlooking the coastline about half a mile away. One disadvantage of this period property however was the painfully low doors. But I learnt to duck by about the third day. In front of the house some old barns and stone walls combine to provide a private and secluded courtyard type garden complete with wood fired two man hot tub. (These real fire hot tubs to take a while to warm up. Patience and some fire building skills are needed.) The cottage owners also have a 4 acre field to the front of the property. Guests are more than welcome to throw a ball for their dogs in the field.

The train station is about half a mile away and the bus stop is just up the road from this Holiday Cottage. Dyffryn Ardudwy is a nice village complete with a small grocery store and butchers, post office, garage and two cafes.

The historic town of Harlech is 10 minutes drive to the North and the seaside town of Barmouth is 10 minutes to the south. Moelfre and the Rhinog Mountain rage is just behind you and the beach is just in front of you.

Lots to do in the area, Harlech has it’s famous castle of course as well as a 18 hole links golf course. We also enjoyed our time at the pony trekking school in Dolgellau, a nearby market town.

I highly recommend this cottage as a cosy base to explore the very pretty coasts around Criccieth, Harlech and Barmouth. The scenery is amazing and the people are very welcoming. The cottage is gorgeous! We had 2 dogs with us and it was perfect for us all. Inside the cottage is well heated and cosy with a well fitted kitchen and nice bathroom. We were very comfy there and loved snuggling up in the evening with the curtains closed. Outside there is a very big garden and a huge field so the dogs were in heaven! There was a lovely welcome basket with crisps, homemade cake and free range eggs which was a lovely surprise. The communication with the owners was excellent so don’t hesitate to book here!! Thanks


We loved the decor, clean, great garden, better garden furniture would be good, hot tub was great, kitchen was well equipped but I had anticipated some things wouldn’t possibly be there, great location. Loved it.

We visited in May and had a wonderful week. It’s a beautiful, clean cottage and the welcome pack was much appreciated (the lemon cake was delicious!). We used the hot tub each night – very relaxing and a lovely view over the fields. The spacious garden and adjoining field was perfect for our two large dogs. A short drive to Dyffryn beach where we saw dolphins one morning. Harlech beach is a favourite of ours too.

We found the bed a little small and uncomfortable but that was the only negative really. Would love to stay again.

Lovely peaceful cottage with a sea view

We have lost count how many times we have stayed at Y-Felin, it must be at least 5 if not more. It is perfect for us and the dogs with it’s large secure garden. It’s a great location to travel to local beaches and attractions. The cottage is clean, cosy and well equipped, the bed is so comfortable it’s like sleeping on a cloud. Thanks for a wonderful holiday once again. P.S. I have pruned the dying potted shrub and watered it daily and it is now sprouting new leaves and coming back to life!


Excellent and 4 blue sky days out of 4 – beat that in mid April!

Wow what a beautiful home. Thank you for sharing it. The hot tub was a lovely touch and fun to work out how to use it and get it hot. The area was lovely and the people all welcoming. Highly recommend for a peaceful get away in a beautiful part of the country

Y Felin is a great house for a small family with a dog (which is luckily what we are). Superb location, with a fully enclosed garden and a lovely quiet walk to the beautiful beach. The hot tub is a fantastic place to unwind after whatever Snowdonia activities you’ve been up to and the views from the window seats upstairs are wonderful. Would absolutely recommend.

Michelle stuchbury

Perfect place for my husband and I for a few days away. Very clean and well appointed. The enclosed garden was ideal for our dog Bailey. The welcome pack was lovely 🥰

Only thing I needed was a sieve!😂
Thank you

Stayed here for a week in October weather wasn’t brilliant but the cottage was clean and comfortable. Views from the cottage were lovely and good walk down to the beach from the cottage which our dog loved.
