This Grade II listed, 15th Century cottage has been lovingly refurbished and can sleep six people in its three bedrooms.

Hen Argoed Cottage is a carefully renovated 15th Century cottage on a working farm just outside the small village of Llanfair close to Harlech. Able to sleep six people in one double bedroom and one family room, this cottage also contains a family bathroom, a fitted kitchen and a living room with an inglenook fireplace with a woodburning stove and a dining area. To the outside of the cottage is a grassed area with furniture and views over to Shell Island as well as bike storage and off road parking for two cars. Boasting a wealth of oak beams, trusses and its original bread oven, Hen Argoed Cottage is a lovely holiday cottage in a stunning location between the mountains and the beach in North Wales.


The Cottage is modernised and has everything you could possible need. The bedrooms are beautiful.
Mr Lister

We had a magnificent week as the guests of a lovely family on their working farm. A great deal of thought and effort has gone into this property catering for everything you could possibly need for your stay. We cooked every evening and weren't short of anything in the modern kitchen which had every pot pan and implement you could need. The cottage is extremely spacious compered to other "cottages" - it's more of a house! A large lounge to sit back and watch TV or sit up to the large dinning table. The wifi was excellent and not the usual shared connection you usually get. You can walk down to the local beach or 5 mins to Harlech beach. Down the coast is the amazing Shell Island beach but don't pay to go on the "island" - drive to Llandddwywe and park there. You walk up to the same beach. Up the coast there are more beaches and walks - black sands is where you can park on the beach believe or not. There are some lovely walks around the farm and into the village. We have only just got a dog and this place was perfect - he walked all day and slept all night at the bottom of the steps with the fire guard strategically placed on the steps to let him know he couldn't come upstairs. He was so content with his water and bed on the stone floor and was close enough to know he was still loved and perfectly happy as we did worry about not using a cage anymore. There was a door we could shut so he didn't wander at night - it was absolutely perfect for him and us. We have fallen in love with this area of Wales and will definitely return to this wonderful cottage

Excellent accomodation, great location and stunning views.
Mrs Burton
