Holiday Cottage Dyffryn Ardudwy with Sea Views Walking Distance to Pub | Y-Felin

Pet FriendlyNear BeachNear PubReal Fire

Y Felin, Holiday Cottage Dyffryn Ardudwy, is in a rural village in Snowdonia, 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 secluded courtyard type garden. Surrounding that is a 4 acre field which came with the property and was perfect for our Border Collie.

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.

Y Felin is the perfect seaside cottage – a 20 minute walk from a stunning and largely deserted beach, with a lush, peaceful garden and beautiful views of the sea and farmland. It’s brilliantly located between the coast and the mountains, with plenty of great walks nearby offering an amazing variety of landscapes – not only the coastline but hills and mountains, valleys, forest and lakes. Inside, the cottage has everything you might want – it’s clear that a lot of thought has gone into pre-empting guest needs – and there is a great welcome pack with useful information, maps and walking books. We really appreciated the delicious home made cake on arrival! The bedrooms are really comfy and there is easy to use heating if the evenings turn chilly. Dyffryn Ardudwy is quite a sleepy village but has everything you need and I slept really well thanks to the sea air and the peace and quiet. Although the cottage is traditional, there is nothing fusty about it – the decor is really beautiful and it was a real pleasure staying there. We’d love to go again.


We really enjoyed our stay at Y-Felin. We were very positively impressed by the cleanliness, how well equipped and well organised the cottage & everything was. The wifi is good, the bed comfy, the garden pretty and very enjoyable on a sunny day. The cake and eggs the host left for us were a lovely touch. When I asked if the heating would be on –as the forecast for our stay was for some chill weather— the response was swift and we arrived to a most comfortably warm cottage (and the weather did turn out to be rather nice for quite a bit of our stay).
The cottage is charming and the surrounding area very beautiful- with the neighbouring fields with cattle and sheep, village cottages dotted around, sand dunes and, at the end, the sea on sight. There is a pleasant walk to the beach too.
Thank you!

Just got back from a lovely few days at Y-Felin, a lovely cosy cottage with everything you need.

Exceptionally clean, comfy beds, great shower, well equipped kitchen and some nice touches around the cottage. The welcome pack was a lovely touch with fresh eggs, tea & coffee and a lovely lemon drizzle cake, the nicest I have ever tasted.

The log fire was lovely and we made use of it a couple of times, although the underfloor heating and central heating was more than warm enough.

Plenty of bedroom storage with enough wardrobe hangers, drawer space etc.. A well kept large garden, not overlooked and private, weather was hit and miss but still managed to sit outside on the picnic bench a few times. Nice sized bathrooms & bedrooms with great views from the window seat and the chairs that were in the bedrooms.

Nice quiet location, lovely garden and plenty of room for the car.

We were sad to leave and had a great time, would definitely return here and recommend the cottage, thanks for letting us share your beautiful cottage

We stayed at Y Felin for Easter following what has been a very long Winter through just under 5 months of Wales in lockdown. The weather was fabulous so we were able to enjoy the garden that was well maintained and secure for our dog to roam. The cottage was wonderful, the under floor heating took the edge from the chilly evenings of an early Spring. Gorgeous welcome basket and the lemon drizzle cake made by Louise was delicious – thank you. The cottage was well equipped and we had everything we needed. The location is great, the beach is a good walk but nothing challenging and is amazing once there. The station is a 10 minute walk with regular trains into Barmouth. We hope to return later in 2021. Thanks Dioni the last minute breakaway was just what we needed and the cottage was fabulous. Thank you

Y Felin is a beautiful cottage with stunning sunsets lighting up the rooms , If your lucky enough to have the sunny weather we did . Perfectly clean and comfortable , lovely and quiet but close to amenities.
The field was a great bonus for our Dogs .
We had to cut out holiday short tragically, but will be back again to such a little gem .
Thank you for the welcome basket it was so thoughtful .
