Hafod Lydan Farmhouse

Situated on a working farm within the beautiful Snowdonia mountain range is this large holiday home that can accommodate parties of up to twelve guests. The house is positioned six hundred and fifty feet above sea level and commands exceptional panoramic views of 'Elidir' and her sisters 'Y Garn' and the 'Glyderau', the Llanberis lake, and beyond to Snowdon.

This is the perfect base for those who are keen on walking and who love 'the great outdoors', with its idyllic rural setting.  It offers the tranquility of the beautiful Welsh countryside without complete isolation, being conveniently located near to the village of Llanberis and Mount Snowdon.

Llanberis is a popular tourist attraction within the Snowdonia National Park and just under a mile away from Hafod Lydan Farmhouse.   With a medieval castle, two lakes, spectacular scenery and some of North Wales' major attractions, it is easy to see why people return time and time again to this beautiful Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  There are plenty of things to see and do along with excellent places to eat and a good selection of shops and amenities. 

The farmhouse is within easy distance of the Snowdon Mountain Railway, Electric Mountain, Dolbadarn Castle and the Slate museum.  You can also walk Snowdon straight from your front door, picking up the Llanberis tourist path at Hebron station or the Snowdon Ranger via Bwlch Maesgwm.  There are walks for all energy levels extending from a five minute evening stroll to all day hikes taking in miles of incredible scenery (just look at the scenery in the photos below!).

Situated in the midst of a working mountain farm, a stay at Hafod Lydan Farmhouse will give you a real taste of working farm life whatever the time of the year. During the spring and lambing season there are always lambs to see and maybe even a pet lamb or two to feed. During the summer, mountain gathering, shearing and dipping  (weather permitting) which you are welcome to watch.

Hafod Lydan Farm is also home to the campsite-Llwyn Celyn Bach which is further down the road and completely separate from the farmhouse. The farmland stretches across hundreds of acres of tranquil mountainside providing the perfect retreat for walking, bird watching, taking in the local wildlife and simply relaxing. Here you may see peregrines and buzzards as well as so many other small birds including woodpeckers, owls and jays.
