Gwenoldy (Swallows' Rest in Welsh) is a luxurious self-catering cottage, converted from an 18th century stone-built barn. Its setting is spectacular, with glorious views across a secluded valley. We are in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close to the coast of North Wales and enjoy a wonderfully peaceful lifestyle.

Gwenoldy offers every comfort, from a wood-burning stove to broadband internet access, for up to four people. Children and babies are welcome. Snowdonia, Chester and the North Wales beaches are close at hand, and local amenities include excellent pubs serving good food, a crafts and antique centre with a popular restaurant, and many country shops and sporting venues.
