“Charm wins the day...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We stayed one night whilst visiting family .We had already barbecued
when we arrived so,unfortunately,we did not sample dinner.
Our loss,methinks
Our Granary room was charming -seemingly hewn from Welsh geology.It was private with its own little patio area.
Breakfast was good -with a kipper option. Service is supervised by the sublimely charming Paula.
Is Llwyndu perfect? Nowhere is.The room decor is 'of its time' ;the mattresses a little lumpy.
But, but...You don't need to care -Llwyndu and its owners are charming[that word again].Staying there is a life-enhancing experience

The owners Paula and Peter were friendly and accommodating. Ive never stayed in this kind of hotel before. The building was lovely and full of old charm. Away from the traffic and street lights picture perfect. If your a stargazer definately a bonus. Its a bit of a stretch to get into town, only 5 mins by car, but a good half an hour to 45mins if your walking. £7 in a taxi from the pub at night. The walk along the beach is much nicer and quicker than on the road. Fabulous views from the hotel grounds and we did have a few drinks looking over the bay in the glorious sunshine. Fab walks with brilliant views in the area. The town has a charm, but restaurants etc in the evening are on short hours out of season. Everyone welcoming and helpful. Would visit again. Thanks Paula and Peter.

Myself and my husband stayed at Llwyndu farmhouse b&b two years ago and are still recommending it to people - especially dog-owners - for a perfect break. The 16th century farmhouse and associated buildings are fabulous and steeped in history and the owners have done a fantastic job of converting and maintaining them. We stayed in the Granary which was perfect as our door opened straight on to the garden, ideal as we were travelling with our labrador. The room was comfortable and well-presented and we loved exploring the old buildings, including a watermill (with wheel still attached) and enjoying the stunning sea views. Our only regret was that we only booked dinner on one of our two nights. The meal we did have was fantastic with expertly-cooked local produce - a real delight. And breakfast was also good and very filling. We were made very welcome, and thoroughly enjoyed staying in such an historic and beautiful setting. I'm sure we will return one day.

Just had a weekend stay at this fantastically old Welsh farmhouse. The main house and the attached buildings, are set on the hillside on the road between Barmouth and Harlech. Located at the end of a farm track, they have been lovingly restored by the owners over many years. We stayed in the Granary as we had a dog in tow. The en-suite room was excellent, lots of beams and stonework. It was spacious, warm and very quiet. It was well equipped with LCD TV and tea making facilities. Basically everything we needed. The cost isn't cheap, but neither is the maintenance of the property you are staying in, all the costs are relative. We felt it was very good value.

Paula and Peter are the owners, Paula is very welcoming, nothing is too much trouble, she is your main point of contact whilst you are there. You won't see much of Peter for a very good reason, as he concentrates on the food, which is outstanding. The menu offers 3 or 4 choices, it's changed daily and is very much reliant on good local produce. We enjoyed two nights DBB, dining on Scallops, Welsh steak, Welsh mountain lamb, chicken livers, black pudding, fresh fish, Pembrokeshire Ice cream and so on. The food is beautifully cooked and prepared, then served by Paula in their 16th Century farmhouse. In the depths of winter, sitting there, with the candles lit, enjoying the great food, its very atmospheric. They also have a reasonably priced wine menu with a good choice.

We loved the area, its great for walking and a lot less populated than the snowdonia area. The deserted beaches are a joy. Its a great place for couples of all ages.

Overall? We loved it.

We had a pleasant stay. There was a friendly greeting and a welcome tea was served upon our arrival. The room was nice, however the windows didn't seal very well and there was some wind noise and draft caused by the stormy weather. The property is some distance from the main highway, so road noise was not a problem. An electric heater was provided to take off the chill. Meals were good home cooking. Overall our stay was comfortable, although the tariff seemed a little high for what was provided

I had a pleasant two night stay while in the area for work and was made to feel very welcome and looked after. I have stayed in converted outbuildings before, which have been cold on arrival, so I was very pleased to find that the heating had been on in the granery so that I arrived to a lovely and thoroughly warm room. The forethought that went into this should not be underestimated as winter sets in, particularly as fuel costs continue to increase and budgets are squeezed, very very good service.
The basics were done well and breakfast and dinner were lovely. A shower would have been beneficial if I'd have been in a hurry, but I wasn't, so it was nice to be able to treat myself to a relaxing bath, which is an increasingly rare luxury in BnBs these days. I would certainly stay here again

We made a Trip with our two kids (6y,8y)from Germany to Llwydu Farmhouse and stayed 8 days. The view was great and Paula and Peter did everything what we needed. They organized f.e.rental bikes, gave us very got information about sightseeing and they made everything for the kids. The meals were great and also the room with the big TV was execellent. We often shared the short ways to the beach and loved the talking in the late evening. Even if you have a special wish, Paula and Peter can organize everything. Thanks for the trip to the farm. The Kids are still talking about the trip so that we have to come back. Wonderful Nature and History all arround. Thanks for everything Paula and Peter
