Ddol Helyg Farmhouse description

Holiday home
Set in the rural grounds of the owner's livery yard, this stone-built property offers privacy and seclusion for parties of up to 14 people, making it an absolute find for large family gatherings or a group of friends. Each of the five bedrooms is en-suite and there are patio garden areas from which to enjoy a glass of wine in the hazy summer evenings. A heated conservatory means you can still soak up the scenery in the colder months.

Situated between Llanberis and Caernarfon lies one of the most beautiful areas of North Wales: Llanrug. Although one of the largest villages in Arfon, Llanrug is still relatively small, with only 761 houses, many of which are farm buildings and renovated cottages. There are only a few shops in the village, including a butcher, two pubs, two grocers and a chip shop. Should you require any further amenities, Bangor and Caernarfon are only a short drive away. The village has its own attractions, such as the 11th Century church of St. Mihangel and the Memorial Hall, built in the early 1900s. Llanrug's most famous neighbour, Llanberis, is only a few miles away. Llanberis has been christened ‘the Gateway to Snowdonia' and offers access to Mount Snowdon and the unspoilt wilds of the Snowdonia National Park. Llanberis also has a variety of restaurants, shops and inns, serving weary walkers with local fare.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

This cottage was amazing; in a great setting, with big bedrooms, kitchen and living rooms for us all to hang out in. We might come back every year! It also had a pottery place next door run by the lady that owns the house which was lots of fun and super cheap.
Mrs Barratt

The cottage had an ensuite to all the bedrooms which worked well for us, as did the number of reception rooms. The location of the property was superb and gave us easy access to a number of places to visit. The owner was very welcoming.
Mrs Haynes

Our group of 9 all enjoyed our weekend away. The accommodation was excellent, great location, beautiful setting and the owner was so helpful and even offered to take us to Llanberis to the start of our walk up Snowdon. She provided us with a welcome pack which was very thoughtful. We had a go at painting a pot at the Piggery Pottery on site which was great fun. Can't fault the location ,the village and accommodation. Could you please pass on our thanks to the owner for making us so welcome. We are sure to recommend the farmhouse to our friends, colleagues and family. Hope to go back soon.

I loved the size of the property and the garden. The location was perfect for us too. The pottery was a great place to spend time with the family. The owner of the farm house was very accommodating and a really nice lady. I would love to go back as there was a lot that we didn't get chance to see.

The location and the host were both fantastic. It's ideally situated to climb Snowdon and the garden is beautiful.

The Farmhouse is ideally situated with activities to suit all. We were a group of mixed ages ranging from 2 - 70 years, and particularly enjoyed the pottery, local walks and the 'Ropes and Ladders' activity centre. The house had enough space for us all without us falling over each other.

December 2014
Stayed at this 5 bed farmhouse for a weekend away with friends and teenage kids (14 people in total). We had a great weekend, and traveled down after work on the Friday evening. The farmhouse was comfortable and is in a great location. The farmhouse has plenty of room downstairs, plenty of hot water, was lovely and warm (we even turned the heat off at times) and decent size bedrooms - all with en-suite shower room. We took a trip down to Llanberis on the Saturday morning. The 'girls' all went into the on site Pottery Centre for the afternoon and had a great few hours painting Xmas themed pottery mementos, whilst the 'lads' went to the local pub which is 5 mins walk away. This was a great weekend at a good price.
June 2014
Booked this 5 bed farmhouse for a weekend away with friends and work colleagues, a group of 9. We had such a great weekend, we travelled after work on the Friday a bit of a delay on the A5 but apart from that easy to find. The farmhouse looks impressive and a great tranquil location. Mrs Winrow was very helpful and left us a welcoming pack, which was very thoughtful. The farmhouse has plenty of room downstairs, plenty hot water and decent size bedrooms. Barbara even drove us down to Llanberis on the Saturday morning for our walk up Snowdon. We had a meal booked at the local pub which is 5 mins walk. Where we found friendly locals and a good choice of food. We decided to have a go at painting a pig at the Piggery Pottery Craft Centre which is on site. We spent a couple of hours there which we all enjoyed. We all agree that it was a great weekend and would definately return.

This was a family holiday with a total of 8 family and friends staying. It is in a great location for exploring the northern half of Snowdonia and we had good road access to Llanberris aswell as Bedgelert and the Ogwen valley, all within a 20 minute drive. This was great for days out on the hills. The accommodation is as described on the Sykes site but I would say that the decor is looking a bit tired and worn but overall still functional. The kitchen could do with a refit as it does'nt cater easily for large groups, there is plenty of pots, pans etc but the cooker hob is next to useless as you cant fit 2 large pans on at the same time! Its a great place for active people looking for a base rather than a luxury break.The pub up the road does good food at reasonable prices. All of our party would stay here again, just wish the kitchen was a bit more user friendly.
November 2013
House is very comfy, warm and welcoming.. Own entrance and parking. Ideal kitchen for entertaining and lovely conservatory with fantastic views over the countryside and mountains. The big sofa in the living room was very snug! Lovely! Barbara was around when needed and was very welcoming. We had a night in the pottery with her making pots and painting Christmas decorations which was hugely enjoyable. Great location.
January 2014
Really disappointed with this place pictures look great on web but in reality nowhere near as good . Taking plates and pans from cupboards only to find dirty from last guests is not a good start. Water leaking through ceiling from one bedroom . Shower thermostatic valve not working so got scalding showers ( unless you are more than fifth to use as there is no more hot water available ) which is strange for accommodation for 15. We book large houses each year for new year for the last 10 years and this is way below what we expected Felt like it really needed a good scrubbing
Mrs Buckland
April 2015
Had fabulous views, lots of comfy seating areas, was warm and had a bathroom per bedroom. In easy reach of Snowdonia and the coast, with river access on the property.
October 2012
My family and I spent a relaxing week here during august 2012. The owner could not have been more accommodating. The property was well equiped, clean and spacious and the conservatory provided a welcome spot in which to relax and enjoy the scenary whilst suffering joys of the wonderful Welsh weather!
October 2011
There were 10 of us staying at Llanrug; 6 adults, 1 teenager and 3 children and it was perfect with 5 bedrooms - all en-suite. Really nice location close to Llanberis and very quiet. Secure garden so the children could play outside. WiFi so the teenager was happy! Overall excellent accomodation
December 2009
The directions to the cottage were excellent, we came from 4 directions and everyone got there with no problems. We were greeted by the very friendly owner, who showed us around the house. Facilities were excellent, and we all looked forward to our meals overlooking mountains and glorious scenery. The rooms were good, comfortable and provided all we wanted. They had workable showers and I think the TVs worked although we did not use them, there was too much to do and see in the area. The cooker provided a challenge,but we cracked it quite quickly although this I believe is being changed to a simpler one. Th owner told us of the many walks from the door and nearby. Everyone was sad to leave but we will all be back.
