About Hafod y FedwGet away from it all in this traditional Welsh countryside cottage in the wilds of Snowdonia.
This charming 17th-century cottage with its low beams, narrow staircase and flagstone flooring is as picture perfect as you’d imagine, nestling into an open field in the slopes of Snowdonia, a world away from the hustle of everyday life. Once you arrive at the cottage there are no other buildings in site, perfect for star gazing on a clear night.
The hallway opens to the living room on your left with its cosy woodburner in the inglenook fireplace for cooler nights. Then the dining room is on your right of the hallway and you’ll see the kitchen straight ahead. The staircase then heads up to the bedrooms a master and a twin, with a bathroom that has a shower over the bath. You’ll find another staircase which goes up to the reading room with fabulous views all around. The contemporary styling throughout is inspired by the fabrics of Welsh woollen mills with hints of purple complimenting the outside, distant mountains. The cottage sits in an open field with walks on your doorstep to explore the outdoors.
The market town of Dolgellau, with its narrow streets and range of pubs, supermarkets and shops is around 4 miles from the cottage with a history steeped in the woollen industry. Action lovers will enjoy being so close to the Coed y Brenin Mountain Bike Centre too, or head into the Blaenau Ffestiniog for the rugged slate tracks. Wildlife and nature lovers will appreciate the ancient oak woodland at Dolmelynllyn which is home to recently re-introduced pine martens, spotted polecat and fallow deer, as well being a European hotspot for lichens.
When you stay at the cottage, then southern Snowdonia with its unspoilt mountains steeped in history and the 58,000 acres of land that the National Trust looks after is on your doorstep to explore. You’re also close to the coast with the sandy beach at Barmouth if you fancy a paddle or watching the sun set over Cardigan Bay. If beaches aren’t your thing, then slate mines and a variety of restored railway lines pepper the landscape. The fantasy town of Portmeirion is also worth a trip out, or the world-class gardens at Bodnant. When you stay with us, the funds from your holiday go towards caring for special landscapes and places, like the Snowdonia landscape and its wildlife.

Notes for guests
Access: If you would like a copy of the access statement for this cottage please call the team on 0344 800 2070.
The track up to Hafod y Fedw can be steep in places, crossing through the neighbouring farmer’s land. We politely ask if you can leave gates as you find them in order to assist the farmer with his cattle.
Hafod y Fedw is a very remote cottage, there are no other buildings in view from the cottage -so at night time it can be extremely dark.
Due to the age of the building, there are some low beams on the first floor and the staircase is steep and narrow.
Utilities/Electricals: Electricity and oil heating is provided.
Reading room: The reading room is accessed via a separate staircase. It is not interlinked with the rest of the first floor.
Garden: The cottage is situated in a large, open field. There is an outdoor seating area and a barn, which can be used for bike storage.
