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. Ideal for couples, and outdoor lovers, there’s also a small enclosed area with patio furniture outside for al-fresco meals in the shadow of Snowdonia. 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. When you stay with us, the funds from your holiday go towards looking after places like these.

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 through to 5 Acorns at the highest level. 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.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose, safe and clean. Running water and a WC 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, which is again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. Generally a 1 acorn cottage does not have wifi. Examples of a 1 acorn offer include Cartref, Wales and Rosedene, Worcestershire.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high sleeps to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 acorn cottages have wifi and, similar to a 1 Acorn cottage, the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic in their offer. All 2 (and higher) Acorn cottages supply bedding, linen and towels. Examples of a 2 acorn offer include Engine Cottage, Cornwall and High Hallgarth, Cumbria.

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 sized kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage. Examples of a 3 acorn cottage include the Mustard Pot Cottage, Norfolk and Rose Cottage, Isle of Wight.

4 Acorn: these cottage have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally it is likely to have added comfort extras. The ratio of bathrooms to guests will be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers as opposed to over bath showers. Examples of a 4 Acorn offer include Portland House, Dorset and Stepper View, Cornwall.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage. This is the highest offer available. The furniture is of high standard, and has real comfort for modern living. Examples of a 5 Acorn cottage include The Old Rectory, South Wales and West Gate Lodge, Yorkshire.
