In 2020 we started a WOODLAND PASTURE scheme with cows occasionally grazing the land. See Woodland Pasture - Conifers to Cows on YouTube which shows the changes to our land from 1963-2020. The hope is to create a more diverse habitat for wildlife at Hafod. You may meet the cows on the track. Please keep gates to the cottages closed.

Hafod cottage and Hafod y Llyn cottage are in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, surrounded by 30 acres of privately owned woodland. They are two-thirds of a mile from the road along a private track, in a highly scenic and secluded position. Out of sight of one another, the two cottages are 300 metres apart at different levels. ACCESS : The track is passable to all normal cars but is steep, narrow and rough in places and may not suit particularly unconfident drivers. It is not suitable for large vehicles, so please contact us if you wish to drive a van or camper to the cottages.

Hafod overlooks the Vale of Ffestiniog, one of the most beautiful and best preserved wooded valleys in Britain. Excellent walks from the front door along a network of paths and tracks (good for mountain biking too) take you through deciduous woods protected by the National Park, National Trust, Woodland Trust and mixed forestry. A swimming lake and a request stop on the Ffestiniog Railway are both within easy walking distance. The picturesque village of Maentwrog with two good pubs is two miles away. Hafod's location 10 miles from the beaches at Harlech to the south, and 10 miles from Snowdon to the north makes it an ideal base for exploring Snowdonia.

Hafod is perfect for people who love nature and walking. Well behaved dogs are welcome.

We charge a separate cleaning deposit (PayPal) which will be refunded if you leave the cottage clean and tidy. Please see Terms and Conditions
