Early mornings and late afternoons is the time to cast a line in a quiet pool, go bird watching or see the cows come in for milking

Our favourite place to stay when visiting Rhodes. Accommodation is comfortable and clean, and the fireplace keeps the unit warm even on the coldest winter nights. Owners are always friendly, helpful and courteous.

We had our wedding on a mountain"! Yes, we said our vows standing in the field, the wind tucking at the layers of white linen flowing from a custom made gazebo. All this whilst surrounded by a 360 degree view of spectacular mountains topped with soft white early autumn snow! Kinmel Guest Farm - Thank you! We could not have asked for a more breathtaking and just awesome experience! The personal detail and attention was incredible - from the perfectly beautifully built gazebo to the tiny green champagne glass apples! The accommodation also perfectly suited our short honeymoon. As quiet, remote and beautiful as you can get! We can not wait for our next visit!
