Taking Llywelyn the Great (c. 1173 – 11 April 1240), King of Gwynedd and ruler of Wales, as inspiration, we have named our huts in celebration of the women of this great dynasty.

ANGHARAD (c.1260) was a daughter of Llywelyn the Great, Prince of Wales. The identity of her mother is uncertain; but several later genealogical sources, including ‘Pedigrees of Some Of the Emperor Charlemagne’s Descendants, Volume III’, compiled by J. Orton Buck and Timothy Field Beard, give Llywelyn’s consort Joan, daughter of King John of England, as her mother.

Angharad is almost absent from contemporary records; however, she is mentioned in a document dated 1260, the year of her death and in sources recorded as married to Maelgwn Fychan.

She married Maelgwn Fychan of Deheubarth, a descendant of the Lord Rhys, and had four children:

  • Rhys (?–1255) – betrothed to Isabel Marshal, the illegitimate daughter of Gilbert Marshal, Earl of Pembroke.
  • Gwenllian (?–1254) – married Maredudd ap Llywelyn of Meirionydd, son of Llywelyn the Elder ap Maredudd ap Cynan ab Owain Gwynedd (sometimes called “Llywelyn Fawr”).
  • Marered (? – 28 September 1255) – married Owain ap Maredudd of Cydewain.
  • Eleaonor of Ceredigion – married Maredudd ap Owain of Deheubarth, son of Owain ap Gruffydd.Marared’s daughter Angharad married Eleaonor’s son Owain. Llywelyn, the son of this union, supposedly married Eleanor of Bar, an alleged daughter of Eleanor of England (King Edward I’s daughter) and Henry the Count of Bar. The son of Llywelyn was Thomas (or Tomos) ap Llywelyn, among whose children were the sisters Ellen and Margaret; Ellen was the mother of Owain Glyndŵr, while Margaret married Tudur ap Goronwy, from whom the House of Tudor descend (Margaret thus being the great-great-grandmother of King Henry VII).

Mark and Jonathan are amazing hosts and Brook Cottage is a fantastic place to stay. Welsh Cakes in the hut on arrival was a lovely surprise. We stayed in Angharad with our dog and the hut felt very spacious. There is everything you could possibly need supplied in the hut for you. Lovely outdoor area with view across the lake 😍 I would highly recommend staying here and look forward to visiting again!

We had our second stay in "Angharad" early in November (this time without a dog), and it was as quiet and lovely as before: not quite as warm as it had been in May(!), but with a toasty wood-burner we were warm.We explored more of the Llyn Peninsula, and still haven't seen all we wanted to ~ I think this means yet another stay in 2023!Thank you, Mark & Jonathan for all those special extra touches: greatly appreciated.

Fabulous shepherd's hut. Lovely quiet location to get away from it all. Views over the lake and towards the Rivals mountains were great. Nice to see the Heron and hear the owls at night. Mark and Jonathan were very welcoming. Top tip to to visit nearby Nant Gwrtheyrn. Definitely worth the short and spectacular drive.

What a fantastic find! Can't recommend enough. Beautiful scenery, accommodation was outstanding. So clean, well equipped and the attention to detail I couldn't fault! Wonderful hosts. Gorgeous part of the world. We took our dog with us and I would recommend that if you are doing the same I'd research places to eat that you can take your dog into.

We stayed for two nights in a lovely hut called Angharad. Sitting out and bbqing with stunning views, it was just perfect. The fire pit/bbq was excellent and so clean, like new! The hut was spotless and really well furnished. Nice little extra touches of milk and Welsh cakes. The site is in a great location for exploring and visiting some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. The hosts were super helpful and friendly. The cat (I think called Pickles?!) also made us feel very welcome. Highly recommend and sure we will be back again!
