Guestbook Comments

If you've ever visited a holiday cottage before, you most likely have seen a guestbook in the property for guests to leave a review for others when they arrive. Each of the following comments was lovingly left by people just like you in the guestbook left at Hafod Wen Cottage.

30th October 2018

What a fantastic place this is! The views from the windows are unparalleled. The beach is glorious and spotless, perfect for the two kids. We've crammed so much in – pony trekking in Barmouth, “Bounce Below” in Blaenau Ffestiniog, kite flying on the beach, sand castles and sand dune hopping, combined with the odd meal out, made this a fantastic week for our little family. Mention must also be made of the jaw dropping sunsets over the ocean, and also to the gorgeous fresh bread, homemade jams and bottle of wine awaiting us on our arrival.

Your home and its location is absolutely fantastic, the view is to die for, but most of all your very warm welcome and hospitality has made our stay complete. Thank you both for all the special little touches you provided for us, especially the homemade bread and crab apple jelly and for letting me join you at your bowling club, (sorry I brought a winning streak to an end Reg) it was a great day out. Hafod Wen is a very special place, we will be back next year. Many thanks

Harlech Beach - 15 minute walk from Hafod Wen Cottage

  • This beach is beyond compare and is perhaps one of the finest stretches of sand anywhere in Britain and from where there are sublime views including the medieval castle in all its splendour rising behind the sand dunes.
  • From the cottage, the sandy beach is a leisurely 15 minute stroll.


  • The historic town of Harlech is dominated by its magnificent castle and has a good range of local amenities including independent shops, cafe, chemist and filling station.

North Wales Coastal Path

  • The North Wales Coastal Path is right on the doorstep of this Harlech beach cottage - just follow the arrows inland to the Estuary.

Shell Island & Llandanwg Beaches

  • Shell Island close by also has long sandy beaches and Llandanwg Beach is a small intimate beach between Harlech and Shell Island. Walk through the field behind the beach to the ancient little church set in the sand dunes and enjoy a coffee or ice cream in the delightful beach cafe .

Royal St Georges Golf Course

  • Royal St. David's Golf Course can be seen from the cottage and is considered one of Britain's top courses and hosts many national and international competitions - a true challenge for golfers!

Llanfair Children's Farm Park, North Wales

  • Open between Easter and mid September this offers a lovely family day out with lots to do - crazy golf, cafe, picnic area, nature trail and craft shop only a mile from Harlech - little tots will love feeding the greedy goats, frisky lambs in early spring or play 'farming' in the shed on wet days!

Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways

  • From nearby Porthmadog's lovely harbour these railways cut a swathe through the Snowdonia National up to Beddgelert and on to Caernarfon or to Bleanau Ffestiniog through surely what is one of Britain's most stunning natural landscapes.


  • Also nearby is Portmeririon - visit early or late in the day to catch the light illuminating the surrealist architecture of Clough Williams Ellis's Italianate village made famous by the cult 60's TV series 'The Prisoner'.

Glaslyn Osprey Project

  • Set on a bend of the wide Glaslyn River the RSPB have a public viewing scheme open between April and the end of August where you can use telescopes and see live footage from the nest-cam of these fabulous birds.

Plas Brondanw Gardens

Oriel Caffi Croesor

  • Drive up the Croesor valley from here - stunningly beautiful with a small village at its head which houses a small art gallery and jolly cafe, Oriel Caffi Croeso.

Days away

  • An hour's drive will take you to Criccieth 'Gateway to the Lleyn Peninsula'. Explore the scenic 30 miles jutting out into the Irish Sea much of which has been designated An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
