We had the chance of a last minute week away the first week of September and I set about trying to find a place closeish to home. After a little bit of googling I found Gwynfryn Farm, which is just north of Pwllheli on the Llyn Peninsula in North Wales.
After a farm play in the morning we went swimming in the pool late afternoon which is small but perfectly big enough for our 3. The changing rooms are also tiny but we just threw a towel on and walked back across the farmyard with these on to get changed at home. So if you do visit make sure you remember to take crocs/flip flops whatever the weather.
From Gwynfryn Farm we visited some incredible beaches as we were lucky enough to have fantastic weather, especially for the first week of September. We went to Morfa Nefyn, Abersoch, Porth Ceriad, Black Rock Sands and also visited Portmeirion, Harlech Castle and Cricieth. We had a ball, often visiting a beach in the morning and spending the afternoon at the farm, or vice versa.
By the end of the week my girls were doing the feeding themselves, happy to run into the chicken pen, collect the eggs and drag the feed bag around.
The weekly quiz and BBQ hosted by Alywn and Sharon was a real treat and a really nice touch. This usually only happens in High Season but as the weather was so good the first week of September they put it on anyway. They provide the food and you take cutlery and drinks. The sausages and burgers were home made and superb. We ended up buying some to bring home. At 50p a burger they were a real steal.
We loved the location of Gwynfryn Farm and the laid back atmosphere. Many guests we met had been returning year after year, and one couple was on their 11th visit. Given the mere 2 hour drive from us, and the stunning beaches, and the fact that it was very good value for money, I am sure we will be back! Thanks Gwynfryn Farm.
