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.
