Cyffdy Farm Cottages
Ranked #7 of 16 Specialty Lodging in Bala
Reviewed July 28, 2011

I recently took my mother ,wife and daughter for a short break at cyffdy cottages, as over the last three years my mother has been through a very traumatic time. but after we spent 4 nights at "Poachers Pocket" and a a warm welcome from Bab's mother was completely relaxed and slept well the whole 4 nights, this was here first holiday in her life ( now age 76) and she loved cyffdy cottages so much that we are hoping to return again next year. The views from the rear of the garden are really breath taking and and evenings sitting outside were relaxation to the full. The cottage was welcoming and everything you needed was there. We recommend Cyffdy Cottages to anyone who may read this. Thanks again Bab's and Barry. My wife and i will be looking forward to our 3rd stay in the near future also with Mum god willing.

After our sixth time in coming you would think we've seen it all ....... but to the contrary, it just gets better and better.
The hosts Barry and Babs are in a class of their own, making you feel like a part of their family while staying in their beautiful, well maintained cottages. Already booked for next year. So don't delay book now to avoid disappoint!

My hubby and I spent a wonderful week at Cyffdy Farm Cottages staying in Stable Nook, the 400 year old converted barn, friends joined us and stayed in Poachers Pocket. The location of the cottages is fabulous, incredible views across the Welsh countryside, and the accommodation was perfect, lovely and spacious and absolutely immaculate. Our little dog loved staring out at the sheep and chickens on the farm and the weather was mostly kind so we managed some BBQs and wonderful walks around Snowdonia. A gorgeous part of the world and a gorgeous place from which to explore. We will definitely be back, thanks Babs and Barry!

From start to finish this place was amazing and we would go back tomorrow if we could! The house was beautifully decorated, making it feel cosy and homely. Surrounding us were beautiful views of fields and mountains; it was so peaceful and relaxing. Babs and Barry were very welcoming, friendly and extremely accommodating...and we fell in love with their cats who came to visit whilst we were sitting outside overlooking the rolling hills and fields of sheep. We couldn't recommend anywhere else more highly!

When booking this break we found Babs to be extremely helpfull and understanding to our needs as we had 3 people who suffer from asthma in pur party, she was able to tell us of the dates that dogs were last there and we founf that very usefull
On arrival at Crud - y - Weryn and Crud - Wennol Cottages we were met by the owner Ann, who was lovely and showed us all around the cottages. We found the spotlessly clean, and homely with some added lovely touches of a bottle of wine and a cake in esch one. Everything we needed was there for us, all the little extras like soap, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, washing powder were all suplied too which we found really nice. The position of the cottaged were fabulous, on a working farm with all the lambs and sheep at the bottom of the garden. The neighbours were very friendly despite the fact we put bunting up outside as we were there for the Royal Wedding. The setting is very peaceful and tranquil and the views are magnificent. Pubs not far away by car for nice food, we had bbqs mostly and even they were supplied together with charcoal to start you off.
All in all it was a fantastic place to stay, Ann is a lovely person and nothing is too much trouble for her, within reason, we would deffinately stay again and would recommend it as a perfect plase to stay

We stayed here for my friends birthday and we could not have picked a better place to stay. The views were stunning, the area was gorgeous. Lots to see and do. We were very welcomed by Bab's and Barry who made us feel like we were part of the family. I would go back to Wales again purely to see Bab's and Barry and the cottages. The pictures do not do any justice the cottages are stunning and a lot more spacious than they look. I would highly reccomend these cottages to anyone who is looking for a place in Wales.

We just came across these cottages by accident while looking for somewhere near to our grandson and I am so glad that we did. We stay in cottages all over the counrty and I can honestly say that nothing comes near to what you get at cyffdy farm cottages. I work in the hotel business and it was the first time I have stayed anywhere and know I wouldn,y want to leave as soon as I opened the door. It was immaculate and had everything you could possibly need. Cant wait to go back. Thankyou so much Babs you have got it all to perfection
