With comfortable accommodation for up to seven people across three bedrooms (one family and two twins), this beautiful Victorian property enjoys breathtaking views of mountain scenery in a tranquil and beautiful location.

This comfortable, homely property is half of a traditional Victorian farmhouse. The house has been sympathetically converted to provide cosy and fully self-contained holiday accommodation on a 96-acre working farm only three miles from Criccieth. Well equipped throughout and providing a welcoming mix of antique furnishings and up to the moment modern convenience, this three-bedroom house is beautifully decorated throughout. With panoramic views of Snowdonia National Park from the bedrooms, this property also has an utterly charming sitting room with an open fire and mountain views. A perfect location for those wanting to explore the breathtaking mountain countryside that surrounds this idyllic location.


The location is perfect for travelling in & around Snowdonia, and the property is in a safe & quiet area. The property had all the mod cons yet still retained the natural beauty of an old farmhouse. Would recommend a stay and are looking to return.

I booked to go with my 3 grand children ages 17,15 & 9. It is a lovely peaceful location & safe, we had a fun packed week visiting Snowden, Zip Wire, Bounce Below, Portmeirion, Black Rock Sands, Porthmadoc, Caernavon, Llanfair P.G, & Beaumaris. The children are already planning a return trip and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The location is perfect as it is within driving distance of most if not all of the main Snowdonia attractions. The owner Mrs Watkins is a perfect host and you wouldn't have known she was next door, but on hand for advice when needed, also bakes a lovely Bara Brith which was very welcome. Would recommend a stay and would definetly return.

We stayed for a week with our 2 children. The house is really nice and in such a quiet and scenic location. Plenty to do nearby and the owner is really nice and helpful.

We had a lovely stay at Ymwlch Bach. We enjoyed the wonderful views and it was very easy to get to both Criccieth and Porthmadog. Our children particularly enjoyed running around in the garden and seeing all of the sheep in the surrounding fields.
Dr Brimicombe

We had a lovely week here with our two small children. Lovely views in all directions, a little garden for the kids to run around in, enough space inside for us, and very easy to get down to the coast at Criccieth or Porthmadog, or into Snowdonia. I don't think I would recommend it for more than 4 adults though - the sitting room and one small bathroom would be a real squeeze for that many.
