Pen Y Bryn Farm House
The farmhouse welcomes you through a UPVC double-glazed conservatory, providing a panoramic view of the front gardens adorned with mature shrubbery and teeming with wildlife. The conservatory, featuring quarry tiles, serves as a delightful additional seating area.

Entering the main lounge is an awe-inspiring experience, highlighted by exposed timber beamed ceilings, a majestic stone wall with a timber mantle housing a multi-fuel burning stove set upon a slate-tiled hearth.

The second reception room mirrors the first's splendour, with exposed timber beam ceilings, a deep inset window, and a stunning Inglenook fireplace boasting a prominent multifuel burning stove against a brick backdrop.

An open arch from the primary lounge leads to a dining area bathed in natural light through dual windows. With ample space for a 12-seating dining table, it's a perfect spot for family gatherings.

Continuing down the hallway from the dining room, you'll discover a convenient ground floor WC, a useful open cloakroom area, and a utility room housing plumbing for a washing appliance, power for a drying appliance, space for a freestanding fridge freezer, and the property's boiler.

The first floor is divided into two distinct areas. Above the primary lounge, a spacious double bedroom awaits, featuring ceilings with picture rails, a fitted wardrobe alcove, and an ensuite shower room with a washbasin, WC, and a shower cubicle.

Just across the hall, a second double bedroom awaits, with ample space for a double bed and chest of drawers, and a separate bathroom adorned with retro tiles for a vintage touch.

Given the historic nature of this 1600s-built cottage, the third bedroom on the side of the property may require a slight ducking upon entry. This large double room is currently fitted with two sets of wardrobes, an inset window transformed into a seating area, and another ensuite bathroom with a shower cubicle.

Enter the contemporary fitted kitchen, laid with large slate-effect tiled flooring, and adorned with timber shaker-style units and a tasteful tiled splashback. The kitchen offers space for two gas-operated cookers fed off LPG canisters, along with room for a dishwasher and freestanding fridge freezer.

Stairs from the kitchen lead to a spacious landing area and an additional double bedroom bathed in natural light. A raised section features a sideboard and a partially tiled ensuite shower room with a chrome towel rail, storage under the sink, WC, and an open shower cubicle.

Completing the farmhouse, just off the kitchen, is an additional room currently used as a games/pool room, with access to a porch. Additionally, a large storeroom provides versatility, serving as a reception area for the other cottages or a convenient tuck shop, depending on your desired use of the premises.

Primrose & Bluebell Cottages
Discover the charm of Primrose and Bluebell cottages, two delightful three-bedroom terrace cottages designed for modern living. The open-plan living and dining room is bathed in natural light, courtesy of dual windows that illuminate the space. The compact kitchen area, thoughtfully designed, accommodates a slimline cooker, a stainless-steel sink, and ample space for a fridge. Exposed timber beams add character, and a convenient under stairs storage area maximizes functionality. Ascend to the first floor, where vaulted ceilings lend an airy feel to two double bedrooms, a single bedroom, and a stylish modern fitted shower room, completing the appeal of these enchanting cottages.

Lavender & Heather Cottages
Step into the welcoming ambiance of Lavender Cottage, where frosted French doors invite you into an inviting open-plan kitchen, living, and dining area. Here, a multifuel burning stove takes centre stage, complemented by exposed timber ceiling beams that add a touch of rustic charm. The kitchen boasts a tiled splashback and space for an undercounter fridge and cooker, blending functionality with style. Discover convenient under stair storage for added practicality, then ascend to the first floor, where two spacious double bedrooms await, along with a cosy single bedroom. The modern shower room, complete with a large shower cubicle, hand basin, WC, and towel rail, ensures comfort and contemporary elegance in this charming cottage.

It is believed the main farm house property is serviced by oil fired central heating and is connected to mains electric & water. Sewage services are connected to a septic tank, although we recommend you confirm this information with your solicitor. The vendor informs us that all four cottages central heating systems are fed off LPG canisters.


The original farmhouse, dating back to the 1600s, has seen numerous expansions and modifications over the centuries. Once among the largest farms in the area, Pen y Bryn Farm boasts a rich tapestry of local history. The current family has resided at Pen y Bryn since 1997, dedicating the space primarily to self-catering holiday accommodation, although the farm has served various other purposes over its storied past.

In addition to its agricultural pursuits, Pen y Bryn has a notable association with horses. During the mid-1900s, it operated as a riding school and dressage centre. The stables, now nestled by the pond and within the Farmhouse garden, once housed these majestic creatures. Furthermore, the farm played a pivotal role in the Royal Mail's operations, serving as a crucial halfway point for changing and boarding horses on the route from Caernarfon to Chester and back, now known as Stable Cottage.

The holiday cottages themselves harbour their own captivating history. Erected in the 1700s, Heather Cottage originally functioned as a shippen, providing shelter for cattle during inclement weather. Primrose and Bluebell Cottages, on the other hand, were once utilised as a granary, with a chute extending from Lavender Cottage into Bluebell, facilitating the transportation of flour from the mill wheel.
