Book to Llwyndu Farmhouse
Llwyndu Farmhouse stands at the base of the Rhinog Mountains overlooking Cardigan Bay with stunning views over the Lleyn Peninsula and just a couple of miles north of Barmouth on the coast of Snowdonia. Paula and I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you and invite you to spend a few days of relaxation in an area of stunning beauty...

Paula and I came here in 1985 after working in London and then living on the Lleyn Peninsula for a number of years. We were bowled over by the views from Llwyndu and the fascinating collection of old buildings we have here, their history and the sea. We hope you like them too..

The old farmhouse, a grade II listed building was built sometime around 1581 when one of the timbers was felled to build the house. The timber was dated by dendrochronogy in 2007. The house has been restored over the last twenty odd years to provide comfortable ensuite accommodation in some very interesting rooms with beams, inglenooks, a stone spiral staircase and a great sense of history. We have also converted a granary of around 1800 with further bedrooms.

The rooms in the granary are equally interesting with exposed pine timbers and stone walls. We don't profess to offer modern, clinical accommodation but hope you like it what we have done.

The accommodation is combined with an informal and cheery welcome, good food and a selection of reasonably priced wines. All designed to make your stay in these parts both a pleasure and memorable. More on Llwyndu history

A guest wrote a couple of years ago that the atmosphere was like ‘being wrapped in a warm blanket’, so comfortable and welcoming.

Maybe you will find that too.

barmouth view We enoy hearing where guests have gone on their travels during the day. Many venture into Barmouth for an amble around and this is well worth it. You can now wander around a new Barmouth Heritage Trail which Peter helped to write and this should take an hour or so. Have a coffee in one of the cafes. Those on the quayside give wonderful views of the harbour and estuary.

William Wordsworth described Barmouth thus, " I took a boat and rowed up its sublime Estuary, which many compare with the finest in Scotland. With a fine sea view in front, the mountains behind, the glorious Estuary running eight miles inland, and Cader Idris within compass of a day's walk, Barmouth can always hold its own against any rival." 1824
