Gilfach Goch (Red Hollow) Farm is a self-catering, three bedroom Cottage that sleeps 5 but on the same farm there is a four bedroom converted barn conversion that sleeps eight.
It is a grade 2 listed 400 year old traditional Welsh Farm house situated in heart of the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales.
The cottage is oak beamed with slate floors on a 60 acre Welsh hill farm overlooking the sea and “Shell Island”.
It has a “Crog loft” with 3 interconnecting bedrooms and a bathroom. Down stairs there is a living room with wood burning stove, a dinning room (with a wood burning stove) and a modern fitted kitchen.
The cottage is secluded and approached down a 1/2 mile private drive, yet it is only a mile from the village of Llanbedr.
The Barn Conversion named Ty Gwenol sleeps eight..
This is a conversion of two barns dating from the 17th century with many original features and extensive exposed beams and oak floor.
It has a large modern farmhouse kitchen/diner and the lounge has the original high barn ceiling with the exposed “A” frame timbers.
There are 4 twin bedrooms in all.
Bedroom 1 is upstairs in the main barn and has exposed beams.
Bedroom 2 is situated downstairs has an adjoining shower room with wash basin and toilet.
Bedroom 3 is in the new extension.
Bedroom 4 has a high original oak beamed ceiling with an ensuite shower room, washbasin and toilet. This bedroom also features a kitchenette and is the room we often choose if available as this also has its own separate entrance.
There is also a full sized bathroom with shower over the bath.
Outside is a patio area and lawned garden overlooking farmland and the coast. Through the woods to the back is a large stone circled fire pit and if you ask Roger and Lesley nicely you may even get an night under the stars round a camp fire.
There is parking for 3 cars
I will be totally transparent and say this farm is owned by a member of my family and although you may expect a little bias, I am reviewing this after staying in all of the parts of the farm, talking to countless guests and hoping that others more unconnected with the family will back this review up.
Many of the people I have met staying at the same time as me have been there before, booking once or twice a year and returning regularly.
I think the accommodation is great value for money, the surroundings beautiful and the spot is a great base for exploring North Wales.
Should you also want to do some adventure activities, Roger and Les can cater there too!
