Escape to a simpler life with Llinos and Geraint

An original Feather Down and our first farm in Wales, Pant y March is in the southern part of Snowdonia National Park. You will be staying with Geraint and Llinos Jones, who bought the farm in 2007 - Llinos’s grandfather was born there more than a century ago. In keeping with the mountainous nature of the farm, they keep 200 ewes, a few cows, some chickens with everything being kept in place by the sheepdog. It is the most mountainous of all of our Feather Down’s with far reaching panoramic views across Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake), the largest natural lake in Wales. You can enjoy a Welsh language version if you scroll down.

Adventures in Snowdonia

Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) in Snowdonia, North Wales is second to none for water activities and a fantastic addition for your holiday. You can rent canoes, paddle boards, sailing and rowing boats at the foreshore in Bala, along with whitewater rafting at the Tryweryn centre. For early morning wild swims nothing beats the tranquil beach at Llangywer, one mile walk from the farm. For those who enjoy biking, the nine mile flat cycle track along the estuary from Dolgellau to Barmouth is a short drive away, as well as the world famous Coed y Brenin mountain biking centre. Hope in the car and head to Zip World in Llechwedd if you fancy a thrill or even head down to the caves in North Wales. If you leave the car for the duration of your holiday, there are endless walking paths in all directions from the farm, to the top of the mountain behind the farm or the 2 ½ miles to the village pub, with the icing on the cake being a narrow gauge railway journey back to Llangywer!

What to do at Pant y March

Due to its mountainous location and an absence of heavy machinery, the farm is a peaceful haven, where visitors young and old are encouraged to roam freely as befits a family holiday in Bala & Snowdonia. As the day draws to a close you can enjoy spectacular sunsets across the lake, viewed from your private hot tub (if you have booked a tent with one).

Bywyd syml ar ei orau ym Mhant y March

Mae Pant y March wedi ei leoli yn Ne Parc Cenedlaethiol Eryri yn un o ffermydd cyntaf i sefydlu partneriaeth hefo Featherdown Farms yng Nghymru. Bydd y croeso gan Geraint a LLinos Jones yn gynnes. Mae Llinos o'r ardal ac yn y ty yma y ganed ei thaid dros ganrif yn ol a symudodd y teulu yma yn 2007. Oherwydd natur fynyddig y fferm, yr ydym yn cadw defaid, ychydig o wartheg, ieir ac yn cadw trefn arnynt i gyd mae ein ci defaid. Hon yw y fferm mwya mynyddig o ran tirwedd o holl ffermydd sydd yn rhan o 'Featherdown Farms' ac mae y golygfeydd o Lyn Tegid a'r Arenig yn odidog. Lle perffaith i fwynhau gwyliau yn Eryri.

Mae Llyn Tegid yn atyniad poblogaidd ar gyfer gweithgareddau dwr. Gallwch logi canw, padlfwrdd, cwch hwylio a chychod rhwyfo oddi ar y traeth yn y Bala, ynghyd a rafftio dwr gwyn ar yr Afon Tryweryn. Ar gyfer nofio gwyllt, does dim safle gwell na'r traeth yn Llangywer, milltir o'r pebyll. Ar gyfer y rheiny sydd yn mwynhau beicio hamddenol hefo'r teulu mae na lwybr beics bendigedig sydd yn dilyn hen reilffordd am naw milltir o Ddolgellai i Bermo yn ogystal a Choed y Brenin i rai sydd yn chwylio am brofiad beicio mwy anturus. Os y penderfynwch adael y car yn ystod eich gwyliau mae digonedd o lwybrau cerdded yn arwain o'r fferm i ben y bryniau neu i dafarn Yr Eagles yn Llanuwchllyn gyda thaith tren yn ol i Langywer ar hyd Rheilffordd LLyn Tegid.

Oherwydd natur fynyddig y fferm mae yn dawel yma o ran peiriannau fferm ac mae'n gwesteion hen ac ifanc yn cael eu hannog i grwydro ar hyd y caeau a'r mynydd. Ar ddiwedd y dydd gallwch fwynhau machlud ysblennydd dros y mynyddoedd. Be well na mwynhau cyhydig o gynnyrch lleol i swper cyn ymlacio yn y babell mwya cysurus a hyfryd.

Absolute bliss, we a loved every second of our stay and can’t wait to go back. Pant Y March Farm is absolutely beautiful with gorgeous views over lake Bala and the surrounding mountains. The safari tent was amazing, we loved everything about it from the wood fired stove, to the paraffin lanterns, candles, super comfy bedding and beautiful wooden floors. Outside we had a fabulous hot tub with sunset views to die for, a wood fired BBQ, deckchairs and a fabulous hot outdoor bucket shower. The farmers/owners were so welcoming and we loved their little honesty shop and the visits from Jess the resident sheep dog. We can’t recommend this place highly enough and will definitely be back 😀

We adored our stay at Pant y March and Geraint and Llinos were fabulous hosts. Having no electricity and fueling the wood burning stove to keep warm really added to the experience. Our two boys aged 9 & 7 loved exploring the farm, getting mucky, collecting eggs from underneath chickens and playing with farm dogs while we all appreciated the wood fired hot tub after a day of walking up Yr Wyddfa.

A perfect escape from everyday life! We stayed with our grown up children and we all absolutely loved the tranquility and the view! My husband loved making fires for cooking, putting the kettle on and the wood fired hot tub! I loved sleeping in a comfy bed and breathing in fresh air! The kids loved lying in the hammock and star gazing at night. We swam in the lake, walked up Snowdonia, swam in waterfalls and loved the outside back to nature life! The Jones family were very welcoming and we will definitely return, highly recommended!

We had a very enjoyable stay at Pant y March and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The only downside was the fact that the family next door kept walking directly past our tent (even walking across our decking!!) but overall we had a pleasant stay and the owners were very hospitable and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We would love to return one day!

Wat hebben we genoten van de rust, ruimte en het prachtige uitzicht. De farm walk over de boerderij, verse eitjes rapen bij de kippen en spelen met de hond, maar ook de omgeving leent zich voor prachtige wandelingen, een bezoek aan de kust of kasteel. De tent is heel gezellig ingericht en de boer (in) vriendelijk en betrokken voor vragen. Echt een aanrader!

Such a unique holiday for us all. The kids particularly loved the farm and interaction with the animals. Location was spectacular and well placed with lots to do locally within the area. We will definitely return to explore further and soak up the stunning surroundings. The accommodation was chilly for the weather conditions, which were extreme for our stay, nevertheless the hosts were very thoughtful and checked on us to ensure we were ok.

We have visited many Featherdown Farms, and have had a great time at every one. However, we love this one above the rest. This is our second visit, and we feel that we can keep coming back. We are made to feel so welcomed, nothing is too much effort, and everything feels relaxed and stress free and so much fun! It is a very special place to us.

Amazing family holiday. We had the whole site booked out as a family and it was brilliant. Hot tubs a real hit with the kids and the view added a real wow factor. Pizza night was delicious and hosts very accommodating, even helping to get our car which broke down the hill and on the repair truck. Definitely recommend.

Llinos and Geraint

We are the Jones family, Geraint, Llinos and daughter Martha, and we purchased Pant y March in 2007. The family has had a long association with the place as Llinos’ grandfather was born here more than a century ago.

Welcome to our peaceful Snowdonia haven, where younger visitors are free to roam in this mountainous location.

Pizza oven

Highlight

Pizza night

The farmer will usually fire up the pizza oven during your stay. Everyone gathers round to tell their stories of the day’s adventures and invent pizza toppings you’ll never find on the high street

Farmer stood next to field pointing down a farm lane to a man and woman, with rolling hills, lake, trees and blue skies in distance

Highlight

Ask the farmer

The farm tour is a must if it’s on offer during your stay. But you don’t wait till then. The farmer will be delighted to tell you more about farm life at any time.

Honesty shop - room with fridge/freezer and shelves with tins, packets and local food available to buy

Highlight

The farm shop

It’s great for the basics and usually even better for local produce and low food miles. And every Feather Down farm shop operates on an honesty basis.
