About Y Wern

Y Wern is an attractive stone holiday home in the seaside town of Llanfairfechan near Bangor on the North Welsh coast. Colourful townhouses face the sand-and-shingle beach, and the Carneddau Mountains beckon with the promise of fantastic walks and panoramic views over Snowdonia and the Menai Straits. The house sleeps up to eight people in four bedrooms and is full of period character, boasting a huge garden and 12 acres of grounds. It is only a 20-minute walk from the beach, shops and The Village Inn. Y Wern is perfect for a holiday with family and friends all year round.

There's nowhere like North Wales. Rugged mountains lead down through fertile farmland to sandy shores. There are pretty towns and villages scattered around the coast and the countryside, and you're never far from a hospitable coffee shop, pub or restaurant. The Victorians loved this part of Britain and left their mark with their houses, shops and seafront promenade. The Blue Flag beach rarely feels busy, while a walk along the coastal footpath towards Glan Mor Elias nature reserve is always a pleasure. The altitude climbs once you head east out of town, with hills and mountains for hiking and mountain biking. Fishing, windsurfing and sailing on the Menai Straits are popular pastimes, as is golf.

Attractions within easy reach include Surf Snowdonia, Zip World Velocity, the National Trust's Bodnant Garden, Penrhyn Castle, and Aber Falls. Take a day trip over the water to Anglesey, marvel at the might of Caernarfon Castle, and take the Snowdon Mountain Railway from Llanberis to the peak of Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa, in Welsh). You're never far from beauty or adventure when you stay at Y Wern, where the town is always welcoming and the scenery unforgettable.

Accommodation Comprises:

Y Wern is a charming stone house dating from 1730 and retaining its original elegance and grace. Accommodation is over two levels.


  • Step through the front door and into the light, welcoming entrance hall which is big enough to be used as a separate reception room. Sash windows, antique furniture and beautiful accessories set the tone for the rest of the house.
  • A fireplace with a log burner is a focal point in the sitting room, which has multi-aspect windows overlooking the gardens and letting in lots of natural light. Deep sofas and inviting armchairs make the room comfortable as well as stylish, so settle back and watch the TV which has a DVD player, Freeview and Netflix channels.
  • There is another log burner in the Snug (or the Cwtch, since you're in Wales), as well as a TV with Freeview channels and Netflix. It's perfect if the adults want to watch something different to the kids, or you want a quiet space to read or chat away from everyone else.
  • You won't run out of storage space in the fantastic farmhouse kitchen, where there is a big fridge-freezer as well as plenty of cupboards. Apart from the ingredients, everything you need to self-cater is here, whether you're making eggs on toast or Sunday dinner with all the trimmings.
  • Wash and dry clothes in the utility room, which also has space for leaving muddy hiking boots.
  • Separate dining room with an antique table and chairs to seat up to eight people. The kitchen has a smaller table for breakfast and informal meals.
  • Essential in a house of this size is the downstairs cloakroom with a WC and a handbasin.


  • Forget about arguments over who has which bedroom - all four rooms have very comfortable beds and have been carefully decorated and furnished to encourage guests to unwind and sleep soundly.
  • Master bedroom with a kingsize bed and an ensuite with a shower, WC and a vanity with his-n-hers hand basins.
  • Two further bedrooms, one with a king size bed, and one double bed, each furnished with drawers for storage and windows overlooking the garden.
  • Spacious bedroom with zip-link beds that can either be two full-sized single beds or a 6ft-wide super-kingsized bed. Please let the owner know your preferred layout when booking.
  • Family bathroom with a shower over the bath, a heated towel rail, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: The garden is as lovely as the house, with a spacious lawn, a seating area and a games room with table tennis. Guests have secure storage for bikes, surfboards and other sporting equipment, and there is off-street parking for eight cars.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, initial fuel for the fireplace, sheets and towels are all provided, as is a welcome hamper with local goodies. Well-behaved dogs are welcome with prior agreement. Smoking is not permitted.
