Bach Wen can be found near the village of Clynnog Fawr. Our cottages are on the site of the working farm that served the St Bueno Monastery which dates back to the 7th century. We lie on the beautiful Lleyn Peninsula, on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park. Our nine stone cottages offer outstanding views in all directions.

From the paddocks in front of the cottages you get a spectacular view of Caernarfon Bay, Anglesey, Holy Island and the imposing Three Rivals mountain range. The backdrop to our site is the beautiful mountains of Snowdonia.
