About Gary Stevenson
We have dreamt of moving to Snowdonia for many years and now the dream has become a reality! We are now enjoying our time managing the cottages at Llanfair and Dolgellau and taking time to soak up the beauty and healthy lifestyle that Snowdonia has to offer. We have brought a house which will be an on-going project as we have lots of ideas and aspersions to make it our perfect home.
Gary Stevenson purchased this Cottage in 2017
Why Gary Stevenson chose Llanfair
We had been looking for a second cottage in Snowdonia to buy as a holiday home and we had specific requirements regarding the location. We wanted a cottage which was close to the beach and preferably with a sea view, we also wanted the cottage to be close to the countryside and mountains. We like to walk and explore so having all of this on our doorstep was important to us. When we came across Hen Stabl we knew that it was the cottage for us as it ticked all of the boxes on our wish list and in November 2017 we collected the keys and started the refurbishment project!
What makes this Cottage unique
Hen Stabl is situated on the main bus route which services most of the main market towns and villages, it runs at regular intervals and the stop is only just up the lane from the cottage. There is a train stop at Llandanwg and Pensarn; both are only a 10minute walk from the cottage. The train is only made up of two carriages and you have to put your hand out for it to stop! Again it services all of the coastal villages and towns that you’ll probably want to visit. If you wanted to go further afield you can get to Birmingham with only one change!

Lovely , comfortable cottage . Everything is very high quality & impeccably clean . Set in a beautiful area of Wales close to many fine walks . We’re looking forward to our next visit .
The quality of the accommodation at Hen Stabl is fantastic. Everything from furniture to appliances, bedding to kitchenware is good quality which added a luxury touch to our stay.
The property was spotlessly clean when we arrived and check in couldn't have been easier.
A beautiful beach with mountain views is a 2 minute drive away which was great for our 6 year old son.
With so much to do in the area we had a wonderful week made all the more special by the comfort of Hen Stabl.
Couldn’t fault this perfect holiday cottage!
From the initial booking,Gary has been excellent in keeping in touch with us about everything including all the pre holiday questions...all answered very quickly-thank you!
The property is immaculate and spotlessly clean-we couldn’t fault it. Gary has thought of everything in the cottage to make our stay feel like home including the lovely welcome pack, so nice after a long drive!
There is loads to do locally with some lovely walks and close to Harlech beach which is closer than we thought (closer than google maps indicated!). The one feature of Hen Stabl we loved was the garden. It was a perfect size for the kids to play in,for the adults to sit and enjoy the views and secluded for our dog to be able to run around too!
We would most definitely stay here again and feel lucky we have found Hen Stabl and had a lovely week away in Wales!
Thank you very much Gary.
Beautiful character cottage. So tastefully decorated and kitted out with everything you need. Very peaceful and relaxing location yet close to so many places of interest. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would love to revisit sometime.
Beautiful cottage. We didn't want to leave!
We have just returned from a wonderful week away with the family. The cottage was beautiful! Very tastefully decorated and full of character. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The stair gate at the top of the stairs was very helpful as we have a two year old who loves climbing! The children loved the bunk beds. Gary was very welcoming and answered any questions we had both prior and during our stay, also making suggestions of places to visit. Harlech itself is lovely and a great base from which to explore Snowdonia. We would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to stay in this area. We had a wonderful holiday. Thanks Gary!
We had a fantastic week here with our Springer Spaniel. The cottage was perfect for us and met with our expectations from the information given on the website in every detail. Comfortable beds, comfortable sofa. Everything spick and span. The location too was ideal. We would definitely like to return as we felt there was much more to discover in the area. We particularly enjoyed walking on the amazing, quiet beach nearby and on the coastal paths. Wondrous Wales!
