Croeso ~ Welcome! to Nantcaw Fawr Farm ... Self Catering Farmhouse!
Welcome to the Dysynni Valley! I would like to tell you about a farmhouse which sits at the foothills of Cader Idris. In the village of Llanfihangel-y-Pennant, 6 miles from Tywyn in Gwynedd.
A working hill farm with mostly sheep and cattle in the summer. This place has a rugged feel and makes you want to explore more of its surrounding hills and valleys. A valley which is rich in history, as you will find out as you read more.
If you want to get away from it all, then Nantcaw Fawr is the place to come. It's peaceful, relaxing, no traffic anywhere near. Listen to the chatter between our woolly friends ...Welsh mountain sheep and their lambs from April onwards.. and of course the Welsh Black cows, which have roamed these hills for years. Birds sing early morning, children can explore and spot the wildlife, play in the babbling stream and be totally safe.
Wake up to unspoilt and breath-taking views, go for long walks, there are many to choose from, with Cader Idris on your doorstep. Down the valley is Bird Rock,famous for its nesting cormorants, amazing views of our local farms and their owners hard grafting, looking after these fantastic landscapes. Take a walk to Llanfihangel -Y-Pennant and visit the church and of course the ruins of Castell y Bere, also here is Tyn y Ddol, which was once the home of Mari Jones/Mary Jones the poor 15 year old girl who walked 26 miles bare footed to Bala to buy a Bible back in 1800 ...her gravestone is at Bryncrug village. Visit Dolgoch falls in unspoilt countryside and enjoy a bite to eat in the cafe. Tywyn is also famous for the Talyllyn steam railway and railway museum which takes you through spectacular countryside.
With the seaside in the distance, Aberdyfi (Aberdovey) seven miles and Tywyn five miles, both seaside towns, it really is the place where the mountains meet the sea!
There are many attractions in the area ...Centre for alternative technology, Corris Craft Centre with its own King Arthur's Labyrinth, take a boat ride through the caverns. If you fancy mountain biking tracks, then its Coed y Brenin near Dolgellau for you!
Dolgellau also has its own cattle and sheep market every Friday if you would like to see more of how our livestock are sold. Machynlleth has a very busy and bustling street market every Wednesday....great for a few bargains and home produce.
A warm welcome awaits you ...... Mae croeso mawr yn eich disgwyl!
