Hen Argoed Cottage Self-Catering

Holiday home
Hen Argoed Cottage is a carefully renovated 15th Century cottage on a working farm just outside the small village of Llanfair close to Harlech. Able to sleep six people in one double bedroom and one family room, this cottage also contains a family bathroom, a fitted kitchen and a living room with an inglenook fireplace with a woodburning stove and a dining area. To the outside of the cottage is a grassed area with furniture and views over to Shell Island as well as bike storage and off road parking for two cars. Boasting a wealth of oak beams, trusses and its original bread oven, Hen Argoed Cottage is a lovely holiday cottage in a stunning location between the mountains and the beach in North Wales.

The village of Llanfair nestles between the foothills of the Rhinog Mountains and the golden beach of Harlech, whilst also providing panoramic views over Shell Island and Cardigan Bay. Boasting its own mild climate due to its unusual positioning, and an exciting array of wildlife and birds including soaring buzzards, this village is an ideal base for scenic walks in the surrounding countryside. The small town of Harlech, which is a World Heritage Site is only 1.4 miles away and is dominated by its majestic 13th Century castle. Popular with golfers due to its famous Royal St. David's course, Harlech also boasts an excellent variety of amenities, including some good quality restaurants. Located within the Snowdonia National Park and on the beautiful Cardigan Bay, this is a fantastic holiday location at any time of the year.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Boswell
August 2020
We had a happy and relaxing week at Hen Argoed.. Our hosts were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The house was as comfortable and as beautifully presented as we had hoped and as an unexpected bonus the owners had recently redecorated and improved it, including new kitchen floor, new doors and steps leading directly from the living room to the garden, with a newly laid patio and upgraded garden furniture. The garden is private and peaceful, tucked away from the rest of the farm and properties/campsite (besides the cows grazing quietly in the next-door field) and with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. Even though a number of places were closed due to coronavirus, there was plenty to do within a short driving distance, including sandy beaches and dunes, mountain biking, walking, pony trekking and ZipWorld. A great property in a beautiful area. Thank you

We had a fabulous week staying at Hen Argoed cottage.. All precautions had been taken in light of the Covid pandemic and we felt safe and secure at the cottage. The cottage had all the amenities required for a family with children. We enjoyed exploring the countryside and the quiet beach only a 10 minute walk away, tourist sites further afield and even a rainy day watching films was lovely in front of the fire! The owners are very friendly and available for advice/assistance when required. Local amenities are also very good. The kids want to come back next year and we have already recommended to friends who have booked to stay in October.

Advertised as having sea views- not quite correct.. Although beautiful cottage and very comfortable. Lovely surrounding area.

It was a real privilege to stay for Easter week in this historic 15th century farmhouse, situated on a family farm on a hillside just above Llandanwg.. It is spacious and extremely attractive, with amazing beams in the roomy bedrooms, a well equipped modern kitchen / dining room, and a large sitting room with huge fireplace and log burning stove. Absolutely gorgeous!! It is good to be aware that you might get the odd bumped head when not concentrating and that the track up from the main road is slightly rough. But it is what it is....a working farm! Also, just to be slightly picky, we thought the outside area was a little neglected. Dead plants in tubs ( managed to give the window boxes an Easter resurrection!) and the garden grass could have done with being mowed. But we loved it and highly recommend.....

The best cottage for me and my family , big thank you

The deceptively spacious nature of the cottage exceeded expectations.. The cottage features lovely original beams and a fine inglenook fireplace -bags of character.15th.century but sympathetically restored with modern conveniences. The owners Eurigg & Sara are very welcoming and clearly run the accomodation very well. The location is well placed for visiting the nearby coastal resorts and enjoying the beautiful rugged countryside, typical of this region. Would definitely stay here again.

This holiday has been the best that we have had for a long time .. The cottage was amazing and had everything that we needed . The owner Sarah was a lovely woman who made us feel so at home and was always around if we needed any advice. The garden was ideal for my kids they loved seeing cows and sheep every day and having a climbing frame with slide and then the view from the garden it is so beautiful . If we do have another holiday we would definitely come back . Thank you Sarah and family for the great holiday and what an amazing house . Xxxx

Another great cottage from Sykes.. Located on a farm/small caravan park just off the Harlech to Barmouth road. Great views, very friendly and helpful owners who run the farm. Its a real character cottage. Looks small from outside but its very spacious. Clean, comfortable with great views when you relax in the rear garden with furniture provided.
Mrs Pearson

A wonderful character cottage in a really beautiful part of Wales.. Beach and Llanfair Slate Caverns in walking distance of the property. The children loved seeing the lambs on this working farm and the accommodation was well equipped. Will definitely be returning

My family had an very welcome winter break at this cosy cottage which was full of character. The cottage was very clean and well equipped, we particularly liked the wood burning fire even though the central heating kept the cottage nice and warm. The 3 bedrooms were very spacious with 2 double beds. The Wifi worked great for the kids all holiday. The owner was very friendly and welcoming and we would definitely stay here again. We know the area very well and the fantastic Harlech beach is only a short car ride away. We love this beach in Summer or Winter. We went into Barmouth a couple of evenings and although a quiet time of the year we found some life, live music and excellent food at the Last Inn.

We had a lovely winter break here.. The cottage was very comfortable with all the expected charm and character of an old farm house but with spacious rooms, good WiFi, wood burning fire and all the amenities and small touches provided by the owner to make this somewhere we would recommend and return to.

Hen Argoed Cottage is a wonderful place to stay. It was a lovely cottage. I would happily come here again and recommend this place to others.
May 2016
We had a magnificent week as the guests of a lovely family on their working farm. A great deal of thought and effort has gone into this property catering for everything you could possibly need for your stay. We cooked every evening and weren't short of anything in the modern kitchen which had every pot pan and implement you could need. The cottage is extremely spacious compered to other "cottages" - it's more of a house! A large lounge to sit back and watch TV or sit up to the large dinning table. The wifi was excellent and not the usual shared connection you usually get. You can walk down to the local beach or 5 mins to Harlech beach. Down the coast is the amazing Shell Island beach but don't pay to go on the "island" - drive to Llandddwywe and park there. You walk up to the same beach. Up the coast there are more beaches and walks - black sands is where you can park on the beach believe or not. There are some lovely walks around the farm and into the village. We have only just got a dog and this place was perfect - he walked all day and slept all night at the bottom of the steps with the fire guard strategically placed on the steps to let him know he couldn't come upstairs. He was so content with his water and bed on the stone floor and was close enough to know he was still loved and perfectly happy as we did worry about not using a cage anymore. There was a door we could shut so he didn't wander at night - it was absolutely perfect for him and us. We have fallen in love with this area of Wales and will definitely return to this wonderful cottage

We loved the cottage, it was beautiful and so well kept. It had everything we needed and was so homely. It was in a stunning location. My eldest son loved being on a farm and seeing the cows and sheep practically in our back garden! We really didn't want to leave and will definitely recommend Hen Argoed.

Mrs Fairfax

Hen Argeod is a truly beautiful farm cottage, waking up each morning to the sound of baby lambs and cows was a fantastic experience especially for us town dwellers! A brilliantly stocked kitchen and a real home from home, a perfect location for discovering North Wales.

The cottage and its surrounding area are beautiful. The owners were friendly and helpful. Six of us stayed in the cottage, including a 5yr old and a 2yr old. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Argoed Farm and would definitely stay there again when we next visit Wales.

It was very comfy and cosy. Very quiet, nice and relaxing with everything that you needed. An ideal base for the area which had lots to see and do. Felt very relaxed after our break away, the children loved it.
Mrs Mugleston
August 2014
The cottage and view was amazing, it's such a comfortable cottage you feel at home instantly! Everything in the cottage was great and provided a lot of the necessities needed! Very close shops and towns for days out and the beach isn't far either! Couldn't have asked for a better cottage or holiday!
Mrs Heathcote

The cottage was beautiful and couldn't have had a more picturesque position.
Mrs Rodgers
June 2014
The cottage was clean, well furnished and had everything we needed for a family holiday - a home from home, but with a little luxury and plenty of character. The garden area at the back was lovely for our eldest son to play in. The location was superb - quiet and with lovely rural sea views, but easy to find and handy for Barmouth, Harlech and for exploring the whole area. The owner was welcoming and friendly but unobtrusive (yet on site if there should be any query).
Mrs Dakin

The cottage was great and we felt really welcome there.
April 2014
Such a lovely location and setting. The cottage was so cosy with a lovely wood burning fire. It was a privilege to be able to stay in such an old cottage. We had a wonderful time and would recommend it! The owners were very helpful and we enjoyed seeing all the animals on the farm.
Mrs Harris

Enjoyed the location, easy access to the beaches and mountains so was perfect for what we wanted. Also very comfortable and warm cottage with everything we needed.
Mrs Moseley

This was perhaps the best appointed cottage we have stayed in. It was clean well-furnished and the kitchen was much better equipped than any others we have used.
Mr Davies

Adored the weather, the location, and I'm thinking of booking up for next year, it was that good a holiday.
July 2013
We loved the cottage, very clean and well equipped kitchen, rooms were generous compared with other cottages we have stayed in. Ideal for exploring this area of Wales, the cottage and area is ideal for walkers. You can have a day off from driving and jump on the train, 10 minute walk from the cottage, fantastic coastal views from the train. Only down side is there are no views from the sitting room.
Mrs Mcdonald
May 2013
This property had everything we needed. The furniture and decor was in very good condition. Lovely views from the garden. Plenty to do in the area, ideal for walkers and those who love scenic train rides.
Mrs Knott

Brilliant location for a family to stay for a holiday. Super views over Shell Island and Llandanwg. Near to the shops at Harlech in North Wales and other Tourist Attractions. The cottage provided every amenity. A great atmosphere in which to unwind and relax.

April 2013
Knowing the area extremily well and just wanting a quiet winter half term break with our five and six year olds, we were far from disappointed with Hen argoed. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Loved the history of the cottage with its modern amenities. As we experienced fab weather for February, the view at the top of the lane in a morning, and out of the bathroom window(on tip toes) set you up for the day. Can't fault it and wouldn't hesitate in going again or recommending.
Mr Humphries

We love the Barmouth / Harlech area and Hen Argoed provides a wonderful comfortable base to explore the area. We've been to Hen Argoed twice now and have already booked for next year, it's like our home from home

Period character of the cottage and the log fire. The home owner was very helpful and had prepared the cottage well - even to setting up the log fire. The ceilings all had real wood beams. The views from the farm were stunning.
Mr Thomas

Everything about this cottage and the welcome from the owners was fantastic! The cottage, surroundings and services were the best.
March 2012
beautiful character cottage. Stunning wood burning stove. Cosy with a glass of wine on a chilly night. Owners very very friendly and kind. Original wood beams, thick stone walls but with all modernities such as washing machine and dishwasher. Our little boy loved the farm itself and various visitors like Jess the sheepdog, the cat and other little dog. Fabulous to see the cows and sheep from his bedroom window. Great for families. The children will love being ner all he animals Great for couples wanting a romantic getaway too.

Everything was ready for our arrival with no problems gaining acess to the cottage. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and stocked with all equipment you needed including coal and firewood for the fire which was made up for our arrival. The bedding and towels were freashly laundered and clean. As I have been going to that area of North Wales for a long time I know about the stunning views and surrounding beauty spots. The local shops are easy to get to with larger supermarkets within half an hours drive. The whole time of our stay was very relaxed and it was great to sit in front of the fire at night and feel cosy as our stay was in the autumn and the nights are cold.I can honestly say that there was nothing about our stay that we didn't enjoy.
Mrs Keeble
October 2011
The cottage was well equipped and had a lovely feel about it. The location and scenery were lovely and well situated to visit many different areas in North Wales or to stay close by the lovely beaches.

Mrs Lev

Fantastic property in a wonderful location. Excellent for families, especially the enclosed courtyard and separate garden and great to be on a working farm. Owners lovely and very helpful. Within easy reach of most popular places to visit and 2 minutes from the local beach and harbour. Plan to return with parents in the future.
January 2011
When we arrived the beams and low ceilings brought a smile to our face. It was nice to drive up the track and see the farm animals around us and a working farm. The owners were very nice and let us get on with our holiday. The cottage is not for everyone but if you are looking for an old place with fire and character then this is the place. There is a pub in the village and Harlic is only just over a mile away which is slightly bigger. There are plenty of beaches nearby and a nice drive north takes you into lots of walking. We went in November and there were a lot of places closed which was a shame.
Mr Sherlock
November 2010
The cottage was just what we were looking for - old, character and a fire. It was nice to see the farm animals around us each day. The owners were really nice and relaxed and made us feel relaxed about being on their farm.
