New Piglets

Kune Kune PigletsSeren and the Piglets

Some of our guests were lucky enough to be staying in Nant when Magldi, one of our Kune Kune pigs gave birth. A bit of a surprise as we didn’t know she was pregnant. We had borrowed Hafren, a pedigree Kune Kune boar from some friends before Christmas. His breeding abilities weren’t proven however and unfortunately he didn’t seem very interested in our girls. We tried playing a Barry White CD and introduced some soft lighting to the pig sty but eventually presumed that the ‘chemistry’ just wasn’t right.

3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days later (the length of a pigs pregnancy) and Hafrens credentials are irrefutable. And now that we’re paying a bit more attention our other sow also seems to be “in pig”. I’ll keep you posted.

Farmhouse Accommodation

Byrdir Farm AccommodationReal Log FireByrdir is set at the foot of Moelfre and the Rhinog mountains in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. The 17th century stone farmhouse overlooks the beautiful cardigan bay coastline and out towards the Llyn peninsula. Byrdir is a typical working Welsh hill farm of approximately 200 acres. The rural and varied landscape is home to many wild animals including wild mountain goats, badgers and birds of prey.

We have endeavoured to retain the character of the house and combine its original features with modern amenities. The impressive stone walls and inglenook fireplace together with the original wooden beams and antique doors provide a real homely feel. All main bedrooms in the farm house are en-suite, have tea and coffee making facilities and colour TV. There is a cosy sitting room as well as the main lounge for the use of the house guests.

Studio Cottage Accomodation

Warm your toesStudio CottagesStay in one of our five studio cottages. The stables and hay barns have been converted to provide a new way to spend your holiday in the lovely old county of Gwynedd. Each small studio has a little gallery in the roof space, reached by either a ladder or a small staircase, making a charming and unusual sleeping space. (If preferred extra bed space is available on the ground floor on request). Each have their own shower room and toilet facility, small kitchenette area and sitting area complete with living flame gas fire.

The cottages give a little more independence than a traditional B&B perhaps. Having your own front door gives you a little more freedom to come and go as you please. You don’t have to feel embarrassed when you come back from a long walk, sweaty and with muddy feet or when you come stumbling back from the pub late at night. And in a way, you get the best of both worlds as the price includes a traditional cooked breakfast which is served in the main farmhouse, a short walk across the lawn.
