The Old Stable is a detached stone cottage on the owners' 90 acre hill farm in the Snowdonia National Park. There are superb panoramic views over the estuary towards Harlech Castle and over forestry and mountains to the rear. The Ffestiniog Railway also runs through the farm. 1 mile to Penrhyndeudraeth, 3 miles to Portmeirion, 5 miles to Porthmadog.
With beamed ceilings and rugs over wooden floors, the open plan kitchen/living/dining area has comfortable seating with a woodburning stove (logs supplied), TV (Freeview)/DVD, CD/radio/iPod dock and Wi-Fi. The kitchen/dining area has fitted pine units. There is a ground floor shower room with a washer/dryer. Upstairs are a second WC and three bedrooms, one twin and a second twin leading to the attractive double room. Economy 7 storage heaters. The walled garden and patio area has garden furniture and a barbecue is available.
Guests have access to the surrounding farmland with excellent walking from the door including 700 acres of forestry with mountain bike tracks. The Penrhyndeudraeth station on the Ffestiniog Railway is a short walk/drive away. The town of Porthmadog has supermarkets, good pubs, cafes and restaurants. Approximately 6 miles to the glorious sandy beaches of Borth y Gest and Morfa Bychan. No visit would be complete without a trip to the stunning Italianate village of Portmeirion, Harlech Castle or perhaps ZipWorld at Blaenau Ffestiniog!

Highly recommended, well equipped, charming and comfortable. Off the beaten track, but pub, restaurants and shop in the village within 25 mins walk. The owners are friendly and helpful. Stephen Millard - 14th October 2018
Excellent knowledge of this property as it was hard to find on a map. The property is an idyllic location and ideally situated for exploring the area.Mrs A Ladlow - 29th May 2018
It was a lovely stay in Wales. The owners have been very nice, relaxed and helpful. The old barn is beautifully renovated with plenty of space and everything you need. It couldn't have been any nicer. Thank you very much.Mr Markus Bohme - 22nd April 2018
The Old Stable at Rhiw Goch was a real delight. A marvellous, cosy cottage which had enough flexible space, even for us, with two teenagers and two very small children (4 and 2 yrs). Well designed and well looked after. Very handy for facilities in Porthmadog and Penryndeudraeth, but deep in fabulous countryside to get real peace and tranquillity. Handy for Snowdonia and the seaside. We'd certainly like to stay again and would certainly recommend it for small or larger families.Mr James Williams - 16th April 2018
Thanks so much for an unforgettable weekend.Marion Landeta - 11th March 2018
The location of The Old Stable is the most special of places. The owners' attention to detail is so refreshing and they are perfect hosts. An absolutely wonderful base to explore Snowdonia. Mr E Ross - 22nd August 2017
Lovely cottage in a beautiful location, with friendly owners on-site. Lovely relaxing family break in beautiful surroundings.Mrs A Sawbridge - 25th April 2017
Handy location for both the coast and the mountains of Southern Snowdonia. The sheep in the barn were a welcome distraction for the children and the owners very friendly. The local bird-life visited the garden - even a Greater Spotted Woodpecker.Mr Dave Griffiths - 26th February 2017
The owners of the house were very kind.Dr Schoppen - 28th August 2016
Location is superb, especially for railway enthusiasts as the Ffestiniog railway runs so close and walking enthusiasts with so much from the door. It is ideally location to visit many attractions, ie the castles, Portmeirion and coast.Mrs Calladine - 23rd May 2016
What a lovely week we had. Weather quite kind to us and we had a great time on the beach time at Black Rock and Harlech. Portmeirion was a wonderful experience. The cottage is in a wonderful position and Arthur & Isabelle loved watching the train and more excited when we had our ride on Thursday. Thank you so much for making our holiday so enjoyable. We would love to come back again to this cosy cottage.Mrs Percival - 21st August 2015
Third time in 3 years. Weather not too good but we have had a great time in this lovely enchanted cottage. Hope to see it next year. Fond memories from the Darrington family.Mr Darrington - 31st July 2015
An excellent stay at The Old Stable, thank you! Mr & Mrs Davies were very helpful and obliging!Mrs Weyburne - 15th July 2015
The Old Stable is a lovely place to stay in a delightful and peaceful location. The friendly and thoughtful owners have also provided information about the many walks and pubs and places to visit from the door or further afield. We enjoyed such a refreshing break here.Mrs Dobson - 4th July 2015
Thank you so much for a really lovely cottage. It maybe in the middle of nowhere but it is in the centre of all that we wanted. Our 'railway children' also loved rushing to finish breakfasts to make sure they didn't miss the train. Chris & MC - perfect hosts, friendly, charming and welcoming without being intrusive at all. We will be back.Mr Whyte - 19th April 2015
Fantastic property in truly rural Welsh location, yet only 20 mins walk, via private lanes to local steam railway and town centre (nice pub, awesome Indian restaurant). 30-40 mins drive from ALL of the key Snowdonia attractions. Would definitely stay here again or recommend to anyone.Mr Livermore - 29th August 2014
Absolutely idyllic setting, and very comfortable accommodation . Wish we had more time there.Mrs Groves - 26th May 2014
We like this property very much, the location is second to none, lovely friendly owners, great for walkers, Heritage Railway enthusiasts and lovers of sheep!Mr Pike - 13th January 2014
