A copy of the painting hangs in the chapel. The original hangs in the Lady Lever Art Gallery, Liverpool. This painting has become an icon of Welsh nonconformists.

We loved the farmhouse and gardens, very beautiful spot and ideal for our young kids to run around safely. We lit the fire a few times when it got chilly in the evenings. All in all very comfortable and welcoming and to be highly recommended. Thank you.

The Littlechilds

We stayed at Cae'r Meddyg farmhouse for a week in May. A lovely old farmhouse that has been extended to include a lovely modern kitchen (farmhouse style but with all mod cons and fabulously light). Well presented, beds OK (a king size in one room but small doubles in the others - some people will mind this, others will not but you need to know if booking); great kitchen area with big dining table; lovely sitting room with log fire; and surrounded by far, land and open space. You can see the Lynn Peninsula on a clear day. The garden is lovely and peaceful. We loved our stay at Cae'r Meddyg.
