The
Experience

A little gem tucked between the sea and the mountains, an education in Welsh culture, and a great place to explore wild Snowdonia, the Llyn peninsula and the dramatic Yr Eifl mountains. Inside presents a cosy picture: Welsh-language and English books share the shelves, paintings by contemporary Welsh artists enliven the walls, an arty 70s décor mingles with sturdy Welsh oak in the bedrooms – the one in the house the best – and all bathrooms are super. Wonderful food is served alongside the Bechstein in the beamed dining room – the welcoming, thoughtful Eluned has created an unusually delightful space.

Reviews

Just returned from a 3 night stay at Y Goeden Eirin. We had a wonderful time. Our room was comfortable, well-equipped and beautifully furnished with a mixture of antique and mid-century pieces. Eluned has an amazing eye for art and furniture - even the tea cosy is beautiful! Breakfast was delicious and nothing was too much trouble. Eluned is a fantastic host - friendly but never intrusive. She is a mine of local info and gave great recommendations for places to eat and visit. We will be back!

Thanks Eluned for being so accommodating. We stayed 2 nights, the second night our son joined us. The rooms were comfortable and cosy. Breakfast was superb, presented with attention to detail with a beautiful view.

Location

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Eluned Rowlands

  • Right in the middle of Welsh-speaking Wales, in an area soaked in history and legend, and your host will advise on places to go and explain place names
  • Eluned is a former Geography teacher and lecturer, and can advise on local matters
  • Food and drink are highly rated here, but dinner is served by arrangement only - if it’s not possible then I can point you to local places depending on your style and taste
  • Plenty of interesting places to explore nearby: the Highland Railway, Snowdon - the highest mountain in England and Wales, Portmeirion the Italianate village created by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, the villages of Beddgelert and Betwys-y-Coed
  • Visit the impressive English castles of Edward I in Caernarfon, Harlech, Conwy, Beaumaris etc. Also see the native (but smaller) native castles at Dolbadarn
  • If you fancy a trip to the mists of prehistory, then you can see the prehistoric remains on top of the Eifl mountains, or go to Anglesey to see some of the impressive prehistoric remains there
