Wonderful wildlife and perfect peace are among the qualities to be enjoyed at Collfryn Farm Holiday Cottages, five superbly renovated self catering properties on an award winning organic farm in a breathtakingly beautiful Mid-Wales setting.
Created from former barns, the cottages sleep either four or six people in style and comfort, combining the character of the old buildings with all the appliances and services that support a stylish modern lifestyle, from log burning stoves to wi-fi and Bluetooth.
One has its own enclosed garden with pond while the others share similar amenities, frequently enjoying the company of local residents such as kingfishers, curlews, swifts, swallows and moorhens while they breathe in the pure air of the Mid Wales Marches, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Shropshire Way.
Nearby is the pretty village of Llansantffraid, which is virtually surrounded by the rivers Vyrnwy, Cain and Tanat with the Berwyn Mountains providing an inspirational backdrop. The village has pubs, shops, a garage and café.
Host Christine Edwards, who runs the cottages while her husband, Matthew, farms, says: “It’s very rural and peaceful here but there are many places within an half an hour’s drive including four National Trust properties, Powys Castle, Chirk Castle, Erddig Garden and Estate and Attingham Park. Lake Vyrnwy is nearby and very popular with our guests.”
Original artworks still adorn the walls of the Llwyngwril Gallery, which has now been converted into two luxurious, light, spacious self-catering holiday homes, providing extra interest and sometimes souvenirs for the guests as they enjoy their break in the stunning Snowdonia National Park.
Llwyngwril itself is on the Wales Coastal Path, across the Mawddach Estuary from the bigger resort of Barmouth, Fairbourne and the pretty town of Dolgellau. It is handy for all the great things for which Snowdonia is famous; wonderful beaches, mountain adventures, steam railways, family attractions, unforgettable scenery, jaw dropping attractions with zip wires, underground trampolining, surfing and sea fishing.
Llwyngwril Gallery offers a quiet and relaxing holiday base within sight of Cader Idris – the most popular after Snowdon – and handy for the Mawddach Trail beloved of walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Many visitors enjoy picnicking at the local beach, watching the sunsets.
The property has been divided down the middle to create two highly individual properties, Mihangel and Myfanwy, each sleeping six with cots in addition. Myfanwy is accessible for wheelchair users and has a wetroom shower in a downstairs bedroom and a whirlpool bath in the master bedroom.
Owner Debbie Ashton says: “It’s a stunning area to live in, far away from the hustle and bustle of busy lives and we’ve anticipated most guests’ needs.”
Cae Du Farm
Holidaymakers can enjoy coastal camping complete with passing dolphins or self catering accommodation with valley views as guests of Cae Du Farm Holidays, a family enterprise in the spectacular Snowdonia National Park.
The quiet and dog friendly Cae Du campsite overlooks Cardigan Bay and has its own private beach with rockpools. Every pitch has sea views and visitors can see to Bardsey Island and the Llŷn Peninsula. They have all the facilities needed for comfort and convenience including a shower and toilet block, a utility area for laundry and washing up, freezers and an open plan room for indoor relaxation.
The self catering accommodation is in two properties on farmland three miles from the coast. Both are newly renovated. The farmhouse sleeps 10 people and the other is a lovely barn conversion which sleeps 6, or 7 using a sofa bed, and has its own hot tub. They both overlook Dysynni Valley and are fully equipped to modern standards from the open plan kitchen/diners to the wood burning stoves. Owners Gaynor and Glyndwr provide welcome packs of delicious Welsh food.
