"THE PIGSTY" is really popular all year round. It is a warm and cosy location in the winter with the added bonus of a sauna. Ideal for the returning walker to ease the aches and pains!!

If the ladder to bed sounds too steep or you want a more traditional cottage, have a look at The Hovel.

If you are staying in The Pigsty you can not only enjoy our lovely gardens straight from your door but also our cafe food. You also receive a 10% discount from the cafe at the Leisure Centres in Bala and in Porthmadog. Just mention where you are staying. Great food in 3 locations, see Tegid cafe on Trip Advisor.
The Garden cafe is open between Easter and October half term. You can get great coffee and a breakfast bap to start the day!
We can cook evening meals and deliver them straight to your door. Idael if you don't want to cook or if you get back late. You can either choose from the cafe menu or talk to Toby about a special meal. We now also do freezer meals.


Sitting up in bed with a cup of tea you have a wonderful view of the garden out of the gable end or the Berwyn Mountains through the sky light.

The Lake is a seven minute stroll from the Pigsty. There is a lovely two mile walk along the top of the farm to a Roman Camp Site. There is plenty of other walking straight from the door in fact you don't really have to get in your car at all once you have arrived.

What a great place and location,far better than we expected it to be, we loved the gardens and the walk down to the lake. Dill and Polly followed us everywhere!! 2 very scatty dogs!

We only stayed for 2 nights in the pigsty and we loved the Sauna,Cinema projector and the fantastic views whilst having tea in bed.

Would love to come back again, Ian and Lucy.

We arrived on the Friday evening in darkness with wind and rain! We were amazed by the stunning view over the valley lit up by the morning sun on the Saturday! The pigsty had everything we could have wished for, a relaxing sauna,cosy sofa and views from the bedroom. We are planning our next visit and can't wait to see what Sarnau has to offer. We are looking forward to another walk to the lake with the famous Dill and Polly, enthusiastic companions on any adventure. Thanks Stephanie and Toby was an enjoyable stay! Rob and Vikki

Thank you for letting us stay in your fantastic Pigsty! Like everyone else we found it very hard to leave and venture outside!
We felt immediately at home and look forward to coming back again!
