About Ffynnon Beuno
Situated on the outskirts of the village Tremeirchion in the beautiful Clwydian range, Ffynnon Beuno nestles in at the foot of its own beautiful valley. Over the course of its long and fascinating history stretching back hundreds of years, Ffynnon Beuno has been an Inn, a general store and many generations have enjoyed its tranquillity and calm. The explorer HM Stanley (of “Dr. Livingstone I presume?” fame) lived here with his Aunt in the late 1800’s and pilgrims on the North Wales Taith Perein have been refreshed by the pure spring water well still in the ground today which gives the property it’s name Beuno’s Well. The well itself is an ancient listed monument thought to date back about 1500 years and the cool, clear water is said to have the healing properties of the Saint for whom it is named.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, people have been drawn to Ffynnon Beuno since the dawn of mankind as evidenced by the amazing finds in the cave on the grounds at the back of the property where Victorian archaeologists unearthed not only primitive tools but also bones from wooly rhino, elk and even mountain lions – evidence that shows Ffynnon Beuno has proven a safe haven for people for over 38000 years! Today the cave is the protected home of a colony of rare lesser horseshoe bats who roost inside in the winter months and guided tours are available on request.
Located in one of only five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Ffynnon Beuno sits just below Y Graig, a beautiful local nature reserve which can be reached via a footpath that runs right through our fields. Offa’s Dyke is close by as well as local circular walksfor visitors to be energised by the beauty of the area. A network of bridleways also ensures that all the scenery can be enjoyed from horseback or by cycle. Ffynnon Beuno has stabling, a secure lock up and a drying room for guests to make the most of the amazing scenery that surrounds the farmhouse.
