About Y Wenallt

A cosy and simple first floor escape above a farmhouse, in the stunning setting of the Snowdonia mountain range, perfect for walkers.

On a working farm, set in the wooded foothills of Snowdon with the Watkin path on the doorstep and spectacular views of farmland and big landscapes beyond, Y Wenallt is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

A simple, converted first floor flat above the more modern farmhouse at Hafod y Llan, this cosy, comfortable and practical cottage has an open plan living space, and then a double bedroom and a bathroom through the corridor. The elevation of Y Wenallt means it’s great for watching the bats roost at Hen Dy, the original old farmhouse next door. Alternatively, if you were planning a break with friends or family but still wanted your own space, book Hen Dy as well, which sleeps eight.

With leisurely farm walks all around, Y Wenallt is the perfect base for exploring Snowdonia.  You’ll find the beautiful village of Beddgelert three miles away with its stunning river, steam railway, shops and restaurants. It’s also a great spot for climbing Moel Hebog and visiting Glaslyn Gorge. Beach lovers can nip to Morfa Bychan near Porthmadog. Or head up Snowdon itself, via walking, climbing or the train. If you’re feeling peckish after your adventures, then drop in to the old converted chapel at the entrance to Hafod y Llan, now a café, which also sells local freshly-prepared food.

As the second largest National Park in Britain, Snowdonia has miles and miles of countryside and coastline to explore, with rivers, lakes, waterfalls, forests, moorlands and glacial valleys all topped with the incredible mountain range itself.  Activities on offer go from high adrenaline canyoning or kayaking to more laid back trips to Sygun Victorian Copper Mine. Explore Plas yn Rhiw on Pen Llyn, or seek out red squirrels at Plas Newydd on Anglesey, all less than an hour away.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level.

The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions (stated on the cottage's webpage). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
