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.

Location

 

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 had a wonderful time at your cosy cottage. We felt very much at
home, once we had worked out the travel cot!! I can’t beleive we were so
inept!!

One comment we would like to make is that the fridge is a little small
for a family of 4. As we had the baby, and the dogs, we weren’t able to
eat out so brought along a fair bit of food and it was a constant juggle
moving things around inside the very crammed fridge. That apart the
cottage is very comfortable and our daughter and son in law enjoyed
christening the hot tub!

It’s a beautiful part of the world and we do hope we can visit again.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay in Y-Felin. All I can say is what an amazing place this was to stay in. It was spotless, which is what I find most important in somewhere to stay. It was equipped with everything we needed and the lemon drizzle cake was just the best I’ve ever tasted and along with the fresh eggs etc was a most thoughtful and greatly appreciated touch.

The whole place just has a wonderful & relaxed feel to it. Everything was lovely with very tasteful and well thought out finishing touches. The sun was shining the whole time so we were able to enjoy the beautiful gardens and walks to the nearby beach which was even better than 2 that we drove to, including Barmouth!

If we had to be really negative we found the bed to be so uncomfortable and didn’t sleep well any of the nights 🙁 but despite that it was lovely having such a peaceful background, no noises or light apart from the beautiful stars to look up at. Just a really delightful stay 🙂

We will definitely be looking to stay at more of your lovely properties. Thank you.

Hi we’ve just returned from our 4 day stay in beautiful north wales and the lovely Y-Felin cottage.
Firstly the cottage is beautiful plenty of space for the 2 of us and woody our miniature schnauzer who loved the garden with the added bonus of it been enclosed the cottage is very well equipped with every you need for a short or even longer break very clean when we arrived and the welcome pack was a nice touch (lemon drizzle cake amazing 😋)
Easy access to all local beaches we enjoyed visiting barmouth with the dog friendly beaches.
And the local walks around the village.
We had fantastic weather and the sunsets on an evening were amazing. Would definitely use dioni
cottages again and would highly recommend.
If we were picking the only issue we had was the duvet could have been off better quality and maybe a door stop we had to keep putting a shoe up to the door to keep it open. Other than that lovely peaceful break definitely return

Loved this cottage, wouldn’t mind owning it. Clean and tidy, lovely welcome pack, plenty of room for the dog to play. The only criticism Is the bathroom could do with a hand rail to help get in and out of the bath/shower.

Lovely cottage, high standard of decor and cleanliness throughout, and generous welcome pack. Underfloor-heated tiles on the ground floor were a boon. Great enclosed garden for our two dogs and the nearby beaches were outstanding.

This was our third stay in Dyffryn Ardudwy and our second at Y-Felin
We found the property very clean and having read previous reviews the only spiders were outside.
Ideally located for walks in the quieter southern end of Snowdonia National park and the challenging Rhinog mountains, away from the crowds of Snowdon.
If you keep an eye on the Barmouth tide times you can have a great time on the local beautiful sandy beaches
We had a week of gastronomic treats with ice cream in Beddgelert, Beer from the Purple Moose Brewery shop in Porthmadog, Pizza from Tony’s in Tal-Y-Bont and award winning Pork and leek sausages at the local butchers, yum!
If you could fit a kingsize bed in the master bedroom and find a measuring jug for the kitchen it would be absolutely perfect.

The cottage was lovely and well equipped with everything that we needed. The enclosed garden was fabulous and very private with good parking facilities. Very quiet little village which is ideal. And the distance to the beach was fabulous.

Good location with a pleasant walk to the beach along quiet lanes. The dunes were stunning, lovely long walks along the coast. The village had all we needed to self cater, great butchers and excellent ice cream at one of the cafes. We didn’t get in the car until we had to go home. Garden was perfect for the dogs to have a run around and we managed to sit outside in some autumnal sunshine. Property was well equipped and clean. It’s an area we would like to explore again so we may be back!

Although the property had lovely sea views from the bedrooms, the house was not clean. You couldn’t see out of the kitchen window, so had to clean, the bannister was completely black, so had to clean. There were over 28 spiders in the kitchen alone. 26 in my daughter’s room and our room was just full of cobwebs. When only allowed to arrive after 4.00pm and leave at 9.00am totally unacceptable. This is the first Holiday we have had in 2 years – gutted I had to spend hot of our previous time cleaning. Customer service from Dioni totally unacceptable. I have never complained before!
