About Hen Dy

Characterful stone-built cottage on the Hafod Y Llan estate great for exploring Snowdonia.

Hen Dy is the old stone built farm house on the Hafod y Llan estate where it is said that Llywelyn the Great resided when he wrote to King John to form their alliance. The cottage is cosy and comfortable and a great retreat after a day spent exploring Snowdonia.

After a hearty breakfast, head five minutes from the cottage and join up with the Watkin path, one of the walks up Snowdon and haven for birdwatchers. 

Further afield, the inland resort of Beddgelert is just three miles away while the beautiful town of Betws Y Coed, with its fantastic shops, pubs and cafes, is 14 miles away from the cottage.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
