About Branwen Bell
The cottage, Ffermdy Bach, is a self-contained part of our house, which is a traditional Welsh farmhouse. We moved here in 1996 and now our daughters have left home we decided to make the most of our extra space! The cottage has its own entrance and garden so you have your privacy and can come and go as you please.

Perfect location for a walking holiday - was concerned about the closeness of a caravan park but didn't really notice that they were there. Walking distance to Porthmadog and Black Rock Sands and also a lovely walk to Criccieth. Would totally recommend.
A perfect place for a peaceful and quiet break!
Great location ,beautiful cottage ,lovely garden ,wonderful friendly hosts .just couldn't be better !
Lovely restful few days in a fabulous cottage situated in a beautiful area
Branwens cottage is highly recommended, such a quaint, homely place that has everything you could possibly need during your stay. It’s situated in a great spot, so close to the coastal path , where we enjoyed walking to Porthmadog and the other way as far as Criccieth. Thank you for the welcoming touches too, very much appreciated.
Thank you, Jane for your kind review and well done for walking as far as Criccieth! We have a lot of walkers staying at the cottage as it's just a few minutes from the coastal path. We hope to see you again one day. Best wishes Branwen
Wonderful accommodation , will certainly return again
Lovely space annexed to a charming farmhouse. Cozy, very clean and in immaculate shape. Branwen is very nice and welcoming, was nearby but gave us our space. We would definitely stay here again. Full marks.
Thanks so much for your review, it’s very important to us that guests enjoy their privacy when on holiday so we try and keep a friendly distance although we’re on hand if you have any problems. Hope to see you again in the future. Branwen and Paul.
