We stayed as a family over half term week as we wanted to visit Portmerion. We all loved the house and the added bonus was that we could walk straight into Portmerion through the woods. The house is very secluded and we loved the fact that there was enough room for all of us to enjoy some peace and quiet. Our dog loved the garden and surrounding walks and we loved the stunning views. The house has been beautifully renovated with a great deal of thought. The library is something truly special and we sat every evening by the fire and played cards, drank wine and just chilled. Everything we needed was in the house even down to the lovely White company toiletries and fluffy white towels. Gwen the housekeeper was there to welcome us and wave us goodbye and was very charming and helpful.
We stayed at Hafod Cae Maen during the last weekend of October. What a fabulous house! The location is very special as is the house itself which has been painstakingly restored by the current owner.
The beauty of the location is that you do not need your car. Once you've done your shop you can put away your car keys. There are lovely walks around the headland and into Portmeirion which is just a few minutes away. If you do venture out, the heart of Snowdonia National Park is a short drive away.
And the house itself has everything you need. The kitchen is very well equipped with a huge dining table which cries out for dinner parties. My bed was so comfy I struggled to get out of it. If you do manage to leave your bed, the house has a lovely garden, and just spending lazy days in front of the fire in the library was a huge pleasure. There is a TV but we never switched it on!
Our weekend was such a nice getaway - the house is beautiful and couldn’t be located in a more special and tranquil place. Highly recommended!
