My wife and I took a short break in and around Abersoch in May, and we landed on Wern Fawr as the sort of place we wanted - quite luckily, since we left it a bit late to book. We weren't disappointed....
As someone else has said in their review: "full of old world charm with oak beams, etc.". Exactly right, and with a theme of Africa based on the time that the man of the house spent there. Although we would have liked the bigger 4-poster bedroom, that had already been booked, but the replacement was still perfectly fine for our needs and had a useful mini-fridge.
Wern Fawr is well tucked away and can be tricky to find on the first occasion, but Helen welcomed us warmly after a 3-hour drive and an arrival in near darkness. It was only in the morning, when I got a much better view of our location in this sleepy hollow of Llanbedrog, did I think of it as being like the Garden of Eden, hence my review title.
Breakfast was something else. Not good for a greedy person like me who sees portions of two of everything and thinks he can manage it. I struggled manfully but had to reduce my intake on the following mornings -- Helen, that's what you call a Welsh breakfast !
Before we left, we were keen to see the other weekly cottage accommodation that the Parrys have on site. Helen was very happy to show us around. The cottages were beautifully furnished and decorated - a very different style to the main house, it has to be said - and we would love to consider a week here in the not-too-distant future.
