We stayed here for the second time and are very glad we came back! If you want a retreat from the world in beautiful countryside this is perfect. Plenty of space and peace and quiet - owners are very helpful but are happy to keep a discrete distance so you'll never be disturbed. The house is pretty much at the top of a lane and other than the postman delivering me a birthday card (thanks Mum!) there was no passing traffic or people walking - a real hideaway. Wildlife in abundance; red kite was our favourite but the bats at night were very cool too (even had a local cat that visited and slept in the flower beds!). Nice and clean and well equipped - good balance of traditional feel of a proper home with modern facilities.
This is a dream cottage which guarantees a good night's sleep. The birdsong adds to the feeling of tranquility as we walk in the beautiful countryside before coming back
To a real log fire. Lots of interesting photos and ornaments. We loved it and will definitely go back soon.
We rented the cottage for 7 days and after just a couple of days we added two more nights to our stay. We intended to travel in the surrounding area but never got in the car the entire 9 days. There are plenty of hikes right from the doorstep and every day, regardless of weather, we made a trek into town. The post office is well stocked for groceries and the workers were super friendly and helpful (we needed a document printed and they let us use their office computer and threw in a free envelope to send it). The cottage is beautifully decorated and almost a museum in itself - so much attention to detail. It is fully provisioned with lots of extras like white wine vinegar, olive oil, tea and hot chocolate plus a welcome package of milk, bread, cookies and two bottles of wine. We texted the owners on a few occasions and they were prompt in their reply and very helpful! If you are going to North Wales, this is the place to stay!
Henfaes Isaf is a lovely place to get away from it all. It is a unique farmhouse built with great care with an enchanting garden. On arrival we found a super welcome pack which was much appreciated. Once there we seldom felt the need to leave, it being such a peaceful place. It has great acoustics bring your own hi fi!! The house is warm and snug whatever the weather There Is ample space outside for al fresco lovers and inside it is well equipped and homely. The loudest sound at Henfaes Isaf is the wind in the trees and birdsong. The market town of Bala is the nearest place to find a supermarket and facilities. We loved it so much that we are planning another trip very soon!
