BFB's Overview

Beneath the big old mountains and moody skies of Snowdonia National Park, four miles from the North Wales Coast, Ynys Pandy (sleeps 8+cots) provides a quintessential rural retreat to escape the stresses, demands and hectic pace of modern family life. This large farmhouse has been listed in the Sunday Observer’s Top 50 UK Holiday Cottages and BFB especially likes the fact it’s not just very family friendly but also a real family affair, with the owners,Tom and Bren, and their daughter’s family all close at hand, even to babysit if required.


Ynys Pandy is a great place to slow right down, snuggle in by the Inglenook fireplace and rediscover the pleasures of being a parent with good friends and family. Getting out and about will also be impossible to resist, with such awesome walking country, incredible mountain railways, mud splattering mountain biking and the coast only a few miles away.


In refurbishing the 19th century stone built farmhouse, the friendly owners focussed on blending traditional character with all mod cons, tasteful homely decor and lots of practical equipment for babies and toddlers, no doubt assisted by the fact their own grandchildren are regular visitors! The lounge couldn’t be cosier with its magnificent inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, beamed ceiling, Persian rug and leather sofas, providing a blissful spot to make the most of the Freeview TV, DVD and CD players, DAB radio and free Wi Fi. Children will also be excited to discover the full height cupboard stuffed with toys, games, jigsaws, books and DVD’s.


Throughout the house, bumpy painted walled, quarry tiled floors, painted wood panelling and deep recessed window seats add more character at every turn. The farmhouse fitted kitchen is equipped with modern appliances and has a dining table which extends to seat 8, plus there’s a separate utility room with dishwasher, washing machine, Shelia's Maid airer and Belfast sink. A particularly nice touch is the Y Siop Bach (Welsh for ‘Little Shop’) in the cupboard, where jams, honey, chocolates, fudge, eggs and other local produce are available on an honesty box basis.


Another wonderful surprise is the huge heated conservatory through French doors from the lounge, with cane sofa and armchairs, a huge dining table and views over the large garden and beyond. The garden provides a safe space to play, with a climbing frame and swings, plus there’s a table, seating and quirky barbecue made by a local blacksmith from two metal gates. A gate at the end of the garden leads into 17 hectares of fields, woods and wetlands for families to explore, fly kites, play football and store up the fresh Welsh air.... did somebody say 'Free Range Kids'?


Accommodation Overview:

Ynys Pandy has 4 bedrooms and sleeps up to 8+, the owners recommend up to 6 adults, 2 children and up to two babies. The house has two double bedrooms beneath the eaves, with a cot provided in one and a travel cot also available. The third bedroom has two single beds and the fourth is a children’s room with bunk beds. The large family bathroom is on the ground floor and comprises a walk-in shower, separate bath with hand held shower, washbasin, wc, fluffy organic cotton towels and complimentary Faith in Nature toiletries. A cloakroom houses a second WC downstairs. There are plenty of comfortable places for groups to relax with the large lounge, complete with cosy sofas, the conservatory with cane arm chairs and dining table, and the kitchen table, which seats eight. The kitchen comes with all mod cons and a separate utility room houses a dishwasher and washing machine. Outside, there's space for 4-5 cars to park, plus a large garden with BBQ, dining furniture, kids climbing frame with swings and plenty of space for ball games.


The owners welcome well behaved pets, bearing in mind that there are sheep and usually horses in the fields and they have two free range dogs and two similarly minded cats of their own. On that note, it is worth mentioning that the cottage garden is fully enclosed (when gates are shut) so the dog shouldn't wander in unless invited.

Location Information

Ynys Pandy is located in peaceful seclusion on the very edge of the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales yet just 4 miles from the buzzing little harbour town of Porthmadog and Portmeirion. The Farmhouse is found at the end of a 150m private lane from a minor road, along with the owners home in the Annexe and ‘Ysgubor’ where their daughter and family live. The big skies and far reaching views certainly make guests feel miles from anywhere but reassuringly for families, civilisation is less only 5-10 minutes drive.


Tremadog (2 miles) is popular with climbers who come to scale scary crags nearby. The village includes a handy Spar, fish and chip shop, Eric’s cafe and the family friendly Golden Fleece pub that’s crammed with character, serves local real ales, boasts a bistro and flower filled courtyard.


Porthmadog (4 miles) is a bustling harbour town with a long nautical history although probably best known as the home of the Blaenau Ffestiniog railway. Originally used for transporting tonnes of slate from the Snowdonia foothills to the quays of Porthmadog, the railway steam trains are now a favourite with all Thomas and steam train fans who can hop aboard for the scenic, 21km trip. And talking about trains, there are two other heritage lines running from Porthmadog along with the incredible mountain railway from nearby Llanberis that chugs to the summit of Snowdon where there’s a visitor centre and cafe to admire the amazing views (weather permitting!). Guests at Ynys Pandy can find all the shops they need in Porthmadog along with a wide choice of cafes, restaurants, pubs and takeaways.


On the outskirts of Porthmadog, Blackrock Sands is a 2-mile stretch of wide sandy beach enclosed by a rocky headland where children can have fun exploring caves and rockpools at low tide. It’s possible to drive right onto the beach, which makes things a lot easier with a baby and for packing a picnic feast.


Just a couple of miles from Porthmadog, it’s possible to step out of North Wales for a few hours while strolling around the extraordinary Italianate village of Portmeirion, created by eccentric architect Clough William-Ellis between 1925 and 1975. There are craggy grottos and surprises around every corner of the Mediterranean terraced gardens to keep children amused, interesting gift shops, restaurants and cafes.


Besides the scenery, outdoor activities, sandy beaches and steam trains, this corner of Wales has plenty of castles for little knights and princesses to explore. Harlech and Caernarfon are both close by and when visiting Criccieth, call into the Castle fish and chip shop and enjoy them on the beach with wonderful views.

  • Ynys Pandy is full of intelligent touches that show how thoughtful the owners are, for example a large wall map of the area, useful and interesting information about the surroundings, towel personalisation system, the little shop ... I could go on! We stayed with a 3-year-old and two 1-year-olds and it was the most successful holiday we've had for years! Our eldest is autistic and very sensitive to change but he loved his cosy room and (very unusual) opened up to our hosts within an hour of our arrival, which just shows the magic of the place really! It was easy to keep all three children happy - plenty of good toys and animals to meet at the property and loads to see and do within a short drive. We can't wait to go back!Review dated 24/09/2016

  • A beautiful farmhouse, with every imaginable home comfort you could wish for. The most welcoming hosts have thought of everything! All the toys, and toddler paraphernalia has been thought of and provided. Our two boys (aged 4 and 1) loved the cottage, the outdoor space to explore and the swings and outdoor toys were another bonus. Stop naming scenery and a fantastic location, feels like you're in the middle of nowhere, but shops, restaurants and the beach are only 10 minutes away. Loved it, and can't wait to come back!Review dated 09/07/2016

  • Best holiday in ages, will be back soon!Review dated 03/06/2016

  • We have just returned from Ynys Pandy after spending a very relaxing week exploring the surrounding area. On arrival the house was immaculate and our hosts extremely welcoming. The cottage is well-equipped (they have thought of everything!) and very child-friendly. Our children loved playing in the enclosed garden and also venturing into the back fields to explore the beautiful countryside. The location of the cottage is perfect, some amazing beaches within only a 10/15 minute drive but also positioned well for exploring the mountains and surrounding countryside. Local amenities are only a 5 minute drive away too. All-in-all a fantastic place with greats hosts. We hope to return next year.Review dated 18/04/2016

  • Tom and Bren looked after us exceptionally well during our wonderful stay at Ynys Pandy. They thought of everything to make our stay as fun and relaxing as possible. Everything is set up for young families and I am sure if something wasn't right, Tom and Bren would have it sorted within the day. Nearby beaches were amazing for littles ones.Review dated 20/07/2015

  • A well-equipped, spacious cottage in a beautiful setting. Surrounded by mountains and ten minutes from fantastic beaches, this is a great spot for a family holiday. The house swallowed up the six of us with no problem and we found loads of family activities within an hour's drive. The owners were close by and very helpful, but not obtrusive in any way. The tea tray on arrival was a welcome touch that set the tone for a lovely holiday.Review dated 28/08/2014

  • Really well set up for toddlers. Didn't have to bring anything, kitchen had all essentials required. Very welcoming and comfortable rooms.Review dated 03/06/2014

  • Had a lovely stay at Ynys Pandy with our three girls 8, 5 and 1. Everything was well set up for a baby, even a special baby swing on the swing set. Bathroom is very large and modern, the walk in shower a real treat and a second separate loo was very handy. The girls loved the toys and the horses in the paddock and the little lambs.Review dated 04/05/2014

  • This is a lovely property - spacious and very well equipped. The box of baby/toddler toys was a real hit with our little one and we felt safe in knowledge that there were stairgates, socket covers etc. The swing in the garden was also very popular! The owners were really welcoming and we were able to order a veg box from a local supplier to be in the kitchen waiting for us. The nearby beaches are lovely and the mountains are spectacular. You do need to be willing to drive places though. It is also worth noting that the bathroom is downstairs.Review dated 07/10/2013

  • We had a wonderful stay at Ynys Pandy and will definitely be planning a further visit in the future. The accommodation and the area it is situated in was ideal for us as a family (4 children ranging from 3 months to 11 years old) on all counts.Review dated 31/08/2013

  • We had a wonderful holiday at Ynys Pandy with our 2yr old and 7mnth old. A lovely home from home cottage perfect for a relaxing family holiday. The private garden with swing provided a great space for running around outside, whilst on rainy days the array of children's toys were perfect to keep both children occupied. Tom and Bren the owners were incredibly welcoming with freshly baked Welsh cakes and pot of tea waiting for us on arrival. Plus they had great advice on what to do and where to go in the surrounding area. We will definitely be back!Review dated 10/07/2013

  • Fantastic, well equipped farmhouse. I would recommend this for any family, we went with two under 1s, and had a fantastic time, but the property would be great for older kids as well. Property is quite remote so a car is essential, but location is beautiful and well worth the effort.Review dated 06/07/2013

  • We (myself, my husband, 4 year old boy and 2 year old girl)had an amazing 2 week stay at Ynys Pandy farmhouse in early June. We had amazing weather for most of the stay and really enjoyed the local beaches (10 mins drive: Borst -y-gest was a beautiful sandy beach which we practically had to ourselves, Criccieth had stony beach with castle on hill, lots of other nice beaches within 40 mins drive, loved Abersoch too). There was so much to see in area that was perfect for us and the kids; steam train rides, beaches, butterfly farm called Pili Palas, Greenwood forest park, Angelsea sea zoo to name a few highlights, plus amazing castles to visit in Caernarfon, Harlech, Criccieth and Portmerion village. There was easily enough to see in 2 weeks and we also loved relaxing in the farmhouse in the beautiful garden. Everything was beautifully presented and inviting and the place was spotless. Loved the woodburning stove (which we used on the last ...Review dated 19/06/2013

  • Just come back from a super holiday staying with Bren and Tom at Yns Pandy, Golan, near Portmerion. The other reviews which rave about how well set up the house is are spot on - the house had everything you could possibly want whether trying to kill hours during a rainy day with toddlers or getting ready from going to or coming back from a sandy day on the beach. The garden at the back is also fantastic - a climbing frame and super set of swings got a lot of use, and our children loved going into the back field to feed and pet the sheep. The house has got lots of toys in the toy cupboard and well stocked with books and DVDs for those days when you can’t get out and about. It is also very well situated with lots of super beaches a short drive away. We left hugely relaxed and in wonderfully high spirits and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Yns Pandy to families, esp. those with small toddlers. ...Review dated 17/07/2015

The valued experience they gain from staying on what was a working family owned farm in snowdonia is very special. I have found it to be a most relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

The owners were really helpful and friendly with suggestions on what to do and see and sorted any issues or requests out immediately. I also liked the fact that they were close by as even though the location is rural it felt very safe. I'd highly recommend it. Location also handy as it's only 1 hour from Holyhead.

Finding a holiday cottage of this caliber which allows us to bring the dog along too has been a god send. My girls are now 4and 7 and have many great memories of visiting Ynys and look forward to many more. I hope this review helps your clients and I would highly recommend a stay here.
