Watch the Coes Faen film
With a fabulous setting on the Mawddach Estuary, the Victorian Coes Faen Lodge in Barmouth is pretty much as good as it gets for coastal retreats. Using the original 19th century architecture as a basis on which to build a contemporary and totally unique hotel, this really is a special place.
An atmosphere like no other has been created using imaginative design, cutting edge technology, Welsh slate, glass and light. Once a service building for Coes Faen Hall, Coes Faen Lodge has been transformed into a spectacular and contemporary retreat. If you crave something different, visually striking and ultra cool, few places match up to this little gem.
From the flagstone floors, exposed stone walls, and magnificent entrance hall with glass roof, to the phenomenal views, this is one seriously stylish hotel. And just when you’re thinking it couldn’t get any better, around every corner a new surprise lurks and vies for your attention.
But what’s really exciting here are the individual spa features within each of the private bathrooms, where guests can indulge in exclusive pampering.
The latest technology mingles inconspicuously throughout the building and, curiously, the modern lighting, Aquavision TVs, and state-of-the-art music systems feel intrinsic to the hotel’s subtle eccentricity. Coes Faen is an exciting design hotel brimming with contradictions that are sure to attract a roving eye.
The owner Richard utilised his previous experience as a car design engineer to bring something unique to the table, with a fanatical attention to detail that is evident in all of the flawless fixtures and fittings. Richard’s wife, Sarah used her eye for style to select the distinctive Italian and Dutch furniture, and then complemented with the soft furnishings, fabrics and colour palette, which have taken inspiration from the estuary views.
While this is an adult only hotel, guests are welcome to, surprisingly, bring their horse along with them!
With in-room spa facilities, state of the art technology, and restaurant, facilities at Coes Faen Lodge are outstanding.
Food and Drink
Dining at Coes Faen is an experience in itself, and it is evident in the menu that the owners, Richard and Sara, have a passion for Tuscan food. Fusing local produce sourced from both land and sea, with ingredients from Tuscany and across the globe, the dishes are a culinary cocktail of flavours, textures and aromas. And the exceptional selection of wines makes a great accompaniment to your meal.
Just as much love and attention to detail goes into preparing the gourmet breakfast, using the finest local ingredients.
The Snug (Cwtch) is a chilled out area with cosy log fire, choice of books and comfy chairs, where you can unwind with a drink or two.
If you prefer to enjoy the outdoors, the woodland gardens at Coes Faen are utterly magical, with beautiful shrubs and plants, and rocky slopes that tumble into the water. Originally designed for romantic strolls, the gardens boast the most breathtaking views.
Things to Do
Whatever your interests, there is a wide selection of things to do in this part of Wales. From surfing and rock climbing, to horse riding and mountain biking, this is a giant natural playground for thrill seekers to enjoy. If you prefer a more relaxing break, there are plenty of scenic walks around the Mawddach Estuarythat run along beaches, mountains, rivers and forests, offering some of the most diverse landscapes in the country.
Zip World Velocity at Penrhyn Quarry is an exciting experience for adrenalin junkies seeking their next adventure.
Harlech Castle is a 20 minute drive from Coes Faen Lodge and is an incredible World Heritage Site that will fascinate history lovers. Alternatively, Conwy Castle is an hour away and demonstrates one of the most impressive medieval fortifications. It is well worth the drive.
Festival No. 6 is a colourful event set within the enchanting Portmeirion. This bonanza of music and art is definitely one for the calendar and shouldn’t be missed.
Barmouth has somewhat of a notable reputation for its Blue Flag Beaches, which are perfect for swimming and surfing in the warmer months. However, there is nothing more invigorating than a stroll along the sands in the winter.
One of Coes Faen’s more unique facilities is its Monarch Stables, where both guests’ horses and dogs are invited to stay. The area is home to several bridleways, while dogs absolutely adore running along the sandy beaches. Your horse can also enjoy a little pampering with the rain shower, infrared heat treatment and built in mangers with cushioned rubber floor.
