Old Mill


Hen Felin - old mill - first described around 1300, is one of the oldest buildings in Harlech and stands in the shadow of Harlech castle. Full of character, close to the coast, with a beautiful garden and views of the sea and mountains. The house is completely free and is within walking distance (5 minutes) from the center of the town. In the center you will find shops, restaurants and facilities. The historic house also has all modern comfort (central heating, fully equipped kitchen with espresso machine, wifi, surround system, etc.). There are three bedrooms, two with a double bed and one with two beds and a camp bed. There are two bathrooms, each with a shower and separate toilet and one roll top bath on lion's legs.

Use of the house
Although there are three bedrooms, the house is, due to the layout, also very suitable for a stay of two people . Despite the remote, special location, the house and most sights are fully accessible by public transport

Harlech is part of a World Heritage Site (Castles and Town Walls or King Edward I in Gwynedd). It is a popular holiday resort and offers a range of facilities. The famous Royal St David's Golf Club has been in the dune area since 1894.
Unique to the location is that you can walk directly from the house. Directly through the dunes and along the beach or through the rugged hills with always surprising views. But also an evening stroll through the old town. A short drive in the Snowdonia National Park and you walk along rugged rivers, where you can find the blue bells in the spring. The other way you can drive straight into the mountains. Too many to mention. Don't miss the Ty Coch Inn in Nefyn (one of the top 10 beach bars in the world) and the tea room from 1480 in LLanrwst.
You can also go in any direction for culture. Of course the many castles, but also Bodnant Garden (one of the most beautiful gardens in the country), Conwy (a well-preserved fortified town with the narrowest house in the UK), and so on. In Harlech itself you can be surprised by a Shakespeare performance in the castle. North Wales is heaven on earth for the outdoor sportsmen. Top centers for mountaineering, water sports, sailing and of course golf.

Golf as it should be is the slogan of Wales. For g olfliefhebbers this means not only top courses in history, but also affordable and often quiet golf. In addition to the aforementioned Royal St David, the Aberdovey tracks are located within an hour's drive (go by train for a special experience), Conwy, Nefyn & District, and much more. There is information about the options available in the house.

For city lovers , there are various options in the area. Such as Chester (cathedral and the unique medieval Rows with two storeys above each other), Llandudno (Victorian seaside town) and Shrewsbury (medieval where the television series Cadfael is recorded). And of course Portmeirion (a fake Italian village on the coast).

We have been in the United Kingdom for more than forty years. In 2014 we found our own spot. With walls over one meter thick, an ancient history and an unforgettable location, this has become our Escape to the Country. At the Royal St David Golf Club we can express our love for the original golf game on the coast ('left' wave). In our house everything is present and meant to be used. We do ask that it be handled carefully.

Location & tips

Additional information

A correspondent from a national newspaper stayed in our house for a week and recorded the following experience (see photo).
With your own car it is recommended to take the ferry to Harwich or to Hull (the night boat is very comfortable). From Harwich to Harlech via M11 (Braintree) and A14, M6, M54 (via Shrewsbury) then A458 (Welshpool) or A5 (Llangollen), total 470 km. From Hull to Harwich M62, M56 (Chester) then it is recommended A55 (Conwy) and A470 (Betws y Coed). Total 370 km. If you are going by plane, our advice is to opt for Liverpool, a small and well-organized airport where you can rent a car. If you opt for public transport, then the plane to Birmingham is the best option. You then take the direct train to Harlech. You can also take the train to London and from Euston station by train to Harlech (but with transfer).
For the last part of the journey, choose the B4573 from both directions towards "The Castle". The street of the house starts at the Seasons & Reasons store with a traffic sign with a decrease of 40%. This steep stretch only comes well after the entrance of the Oude Molen. If you miss the exit and you are still on the A496, head back towards Llanfair and onto the B4573 with a sharp turn. Do NOT take the very steep road to the 25% castle with two blind hairpin bends.
