Gwaenynog is a beautiful farmhouse in a quiet and scenic location, surrounded by 16 acres of land - a mixture of fields, woods and wetland; there's a lot of wildlife and flora, plus a variety of birds, including Peregrines and our resident Tawny Owl. There are extremely comfortable beds, powerful showers, generous towels, lovely shower gels and shampoos, a choice of teas and coffee in all the rooms with fresh milk, flat screen TV's with Freeview & DVD players, and free wifi; all with varying views from every window. We offer tea and homemade cake or biscuits after your journey to help you unwind, between 4-6pm. Relax in the guest lounge or out on the patio if the sun is shining. After a relaxed night's sleep rise for a leisurely cooked breakfast of locally produced ingredients or perhaps something lighter. Our breakfasts are plentiful and varied - made for vegetarians, coeliacs or other allergies too - if you let us know in advance; and all made from the best local produce. Bordered by ancient woodland and hedgerows that offer seclusion, the campsite offers some wonderful views. You can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet that is synonymous with Gwaenynog. Quiet country lanes, ideal for walking or cycling, can join up with marked walks such as Glyndwr's Way or Ann Griffiths walk (a mile away); or utilise other public footpaths and bridleways that cross the surrounding farmland. Or walk to the local pub (2.5m). And now, are you thinking of getting married somewhere rural and connected with nature? Then why not come to Gwaenynog. We're now licensed to offer civil partnerships and marriages in our barn or guest lounge. The only restriction is your imagination and budget. So, why not visit Mid Wales - it's worth a look.

Quiet, comfortable, friendly, well catered using locally sourced products friendly. Try the Welsh tea! Print off the directions and follow them - not the satnav. Ask how to get to to the Tump and its panoramic views - a nice short walk to do after your journey.

Thank you firstly for reviewing your stay with us, but secondly for saying such nice things! Storm Gareth was definitely noticeable and we were all glad to see the back of him! The Goat is always our first recommendation locally, although we do some pretty good evening meals in-house... ;-) Hopefully we'll see you again. Regards, Fiona & Norman

Excellent service from Fiona and Norman who ensured we were comfortable. The standard of the rooms was to a great hotel level, but still felt very cosy. They considered the extras like cold water available in bottles to take to the room, jars of sweets and biscuits, and extra
