The Piggery | The Farmhouse | The Granary
beautiful holiday cottages in the heart of Snowdonia, North Wales
THIS IS THE OFFICIAL OWNER WEBSITE 2018-2019. Mike and Fran Graham look forward to welcoming you to one of the most peaceful spots in the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales, UK, set in the Conwy Valley just north of Betws y Coed and south of Conwy, close to the Welsh mountains, hills and coasts. We offer you the opportunity of a most tranquil stay, to really ‘get away from it all’. Llwyn y Gwaew farm is near an old sheep drovers route and set in a fantastic elevated panorama offering extensive views across the Conwy Valley, towards the ‘Pen y Gaer’ iron age hill fort and northwards to Llandudno and Conwy on the coast.
You can stay at THE FARMHOUSE (3 bedrooms), THE PIGGERY (3 bedrooms) or THE GRANARY (2 bedrooms) Self Catering accommodation. These are all easily accessible yet situated in THE most quiet setting that is well away from main roads; a respite for anyone who needs a proper break or who loves nature, walking, photography or … just to do little and ‘switch off’! Our three traditional stone dwellings are a farmstead (we have traced back Llwyn y Gwaew Farm to the mid 19th Century). This means that a larger group can stay in separate self catering accommodations but still enjoy a holiday ‘together’ (subject to availability at the time of booking). We have many returning guests. After having busy commercial lives (Mike was a Project Manager), we are ‘early retired’ and enjoying the lifestyle too …………..
Llwyn y Gwaew is set in 30 acres of land including woodlands, a stream and three ponds. You can enjoy walking, see the sheep most of the year, wildfowl and birds of prey such as buzzards and red kites; be amused by our ducks splashing about, watch hares and rabbits; stoats and badgers too if you are very lucky! You can witness wonderful sunsets and sunrises or look up at clear night skies. Light pollution hardly exists. Snowdonia National Park was awarded official ‘International Dark Sky reserve’ status in 2015.
Llwyn y Gwaew farm is also close to many attractions including Surf Snowdonia, Zip World in Bethesda and Venue Cymru Theatre in Llandudno. Mount Snowdon and the Isle of Anglesey are easily in reach.
