About Henfaes Isaf

In March 2018 Henfaes Isaf was listed in The Sunday Times as one of the trendiest places to stay in the UK. Delightful Welsh farmhouse in the Upper Dee Valley with open fire, exposed beams and a beautiful garden.

  • Far away from modern life and surrounded by unspoilt, beautiful countryside this unique traditional Welsh farmhouse is set in a lovely peaceful garden with lots of walks virtually on your doorstep - this is ideal mountain biking country too - see below for more information.
  • This beautiful cottage is featured in the book Cool Places and in Julia Bradbury's Outdoor Guide as a walk-friendly location to stay.
  • The farmhouse dates back several centuries, a former outhouse has 1770 carved on a wall, but the house probably was built in much earlier times and has now been sympathetically renovated with many original features still to be seen - beamed ceilings, an oak-panelled wall, bespoke wooden doors and windows with stained glass salvaged from ancient churches.
  • The cosy sitting room has an inglenook fireplace complete with bread oven and comfortable yellow sofas which contrast with beautiful antique furniture and unique pieces handcrafted by previous generations of owners - a magnificent handcrafted dresser and dining table are features of the dining room.
  • There are lovely bedrooms and a bathroom on the 1st floor and an old stable with a converted hayloft - a colourful games room with toys, games, large TV and a comfortable sofa - plus a telescope to explore the night sky.
  • This tranquil location attracts a wide variety of birds, relax in the garden, dine alfresco and listen to evening birdsong - when daylight fades the night sky is filled with stars - a truly lovely sight which has to be seen to be believed!

A wonderful week in this most beautiful, comfortable cottage. The location could not be bettered - peaceful pasture all around - though the cottage is up a steep, narrow lane. We loved the rambling nature of the carefully restored building and all the original features. Lots of lovely walks from the door. A generous welcome pack.

Its so good it should be kept a secret! Peaceful characterful cottage with all modern equipment meeting needs of all generations. Idyllic setting with nothing but bird song and sheep for company. Amazing walks from the doorstep. Beautifully maintained, every thing you need is there and enough dishwasher tablets and loo rolls for the week. ( this is a rarity!!) We were exceptionally lucky with the weather but Im sure the log burner and vast store of books and games would keep everyone warm and entertained if required.

The Lloyd Family
19th May 2018

Absolute gem of a cottage, lovely period features such as the inglenook fireplace. Weather was great so really enjoyed the alfresco dining in the evening. Had numerous clear skies so the star gazing was a real treat! The most peaceful and tranquil setting, really don't want to go back to a busy town/city. Surrounding areas are stunning, really enjoyed the waterfalls at Pistyll Rhayader and Conwy Falls. Barmouth also a great beach! Thanks for a wonderful stay, definitely relaxed and chilled! Hope to return one day!

The Denning family
14th April 2018

Lots of reasons why this is one of the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed in; the location, the facilities, the décor, little homely touches like the teaset in the bedroom. We've had lovely walks from the cottage up the hills, and to forts and standing stones nearby.

The Edwards and Davies family.
2nd September 2017

This has been a wonderful time, our hearts and minds refreshed and prepared for return to work and school. To our 7 and 13 year old boys this has been a real eye-opener and they have discovered a love of rambling. From sitting watching the butterflies on the swing seat to meeting ponies on a ramble – fantastic. Three generations have loved being here – thank you. Hoping to come back soon.

What a lovely cottage this is, in a heavenly tranquil location and so excellently appointed in such good taste and with such attention to comfort and detail! We had a fantastic week with mixed weather, enjoying the many seating areas inside and in the pretty garden, and going for long rambles in the beautiful Welsh hills. The welcoming pack including a nice Chardonnay was consumed with gusto and thanks, and all in all we are sorry to have to leave! We'll certainly spread the word in Holland, and come back to this little slice of heaven!

Thank you so much for letting us share your wonderful house. The setting is so beautiful and the house so comfortable. We enjoyed the peace and tranquillity in the heart of nature. The welcome gifts were really appreciated. I loved the garden and exploring around the fields. Our little grand-daughter really loved the play room and pottering around outside. Thank you again. We would love to come back someday.

Excellent Walks from your doorstep

  • Henfaes Isaf lies just off the Tegid Way - just one of the excellent walks from the cottage. There is a wonderful circular walk - the Wayfarer's Memorial, leading up to Cadair Bronwen - views across the whole of the Berwyn Range - then returning back to the farmhouse via Ty Uchaf, an ancient stone circle.
  • Cynwyd Waterfalls are a short walk away across the fields - care here there are steep drops. Walk along the River Dee from an ancient historic bridge to discover small pebbly beaches - sure to appeal to small children and perhaps older ones too!
  • Maps for these walks can be found in the farmhouse for guests to borrow - mountain bikers can take the circular route from the farmhouse via the Wayfarer's Memorial.
