The Glasfryn Farm Shop is found within the wonderful Glasfryn Parc, which itself is a great destination for families, offering up a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities, such as archery, wake boarding, clay pigeon shooting and go karting, as well as ten pin bowling and an indoor play area for the kids.
But what we love most of all is the farm shop. Glasfryn Farm Shop (or Siop Fferm Glasfryn in Welsh) is a family run farm shop that is celebrating its sixteenth year in 2017. The butchery has won a number of different awards for its meats, all of which are reared on the Glasfryn estate. Their Cig Moch Pen Llyn bacon is a particular delight, having been traditionally cured and smoked by hand on the premises.
Make sure to try the pork, apple and blue cheese sausage, which was awarded a gold star at the Great Taste Awards. The farm shop also offers a wide variety of local produce and gourmet treats to take home with you, such as speciality cheeses, preserves and chutneys, pâtés, and even homemade ready meals, for an easy meal with a difference.
Located close to Pencaenewydd, Glasfryn Farm Shop can be found just off the A499 next to Glasfryn Parc.

Chirk Castle is a commanding structure, an imposing fortress put to great use in the Welsh Marches and has been continuously inhabited since the 1300s. The National Trust property is well worth a visit, with sumptuous décor and Adam-style furniture contrasting strongly with the dingy dungeons below.
The village of Portmeirion is a truly unusual place. It was the brainchild of the famous architect, Sir Clough Williams Ellis, and is designed in a bizarre mishmash of different styles. It was famously the setting of the cult ‘60s TV programme “The Prisoner”, but is most notable for how it resembles a slice of the Italian Riviera, despite being situated on the North Wales coast.
The picturesque Llyn Peninsula is home to a wide array of different beaches, each of which is beautiful in its own way, but perhaps none are lovelier than this one. Technically, this one beach is actually two, but because they are connected they can both be enjoyed at the same time.
Base yourself in a holiday cottage in the Porthmadog area and you can easily explore the surrounding area of Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula. There's plenty to do and see in every direction from beautiful scenery to famous attractions and activities including Port Meirion and the Welsh & Highland steam Railways.
Portmeirion is a place you have to visit during your stay in North Wales. In the beautiful location of the Dwyrd Estuary the Architect Clough Willimas-Ellis created an Italianate Village. This wonderful backdrop was used as the film set for the series "The Prisoner" and is now the site of Festival Number 6 (first week in September each year). Also in the area is the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways and the location gives easy access to the Llyn Peninsula and the Snowdonia National Park.
Relax in front of a warm fire and watch the flames flickering in front of you. All of these cottages have a log burner or open fire.
