Dog FriendlyNear BeachHot TubReal FireEV Charger

Y Felin, 17th Century Holiday cottage with hot tub and sea views in Dyffryn Ardudwy Eryri (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.

We’ve just enjoyed a week staying in the beautiful Y Felin. The farmhouse is stunning, we loved the thick stone walls, exposed beams, and latch doors. The house is lovely, the decor clean and bright and the bed comfortable. After a couple of hours the underfloor heating made the lounge warm and cosy. The large garden was very natural, and not overly tamed… we loved it. We didn’t use the hot tub.
Only recommendations would be a couple of new sofas, a new TV as the picture quality was very poor, and a rubber mat for the bath, as it was slippery using the shower. Apart from those bits we’d definitely stay again.

We were up visiting family in Tal y Bont and staying here was perfect for us. The cottage was beautiful and clean with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Didn’t use the hot tub…..maybe next time!
Big Thanks

We absolutely fell in love with Y-Felin and had a wonderful restful Christmas we’ll remember forever. As soon as we got back home, we booked our next stay! This is a beautiful, private, warm cosy cottage with everything you need. Location is amazing close to the beach and dunes, Harlech castle and stunning mountain hiking.

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

Claire Coleman

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!

Sarah Dawson

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
