Food

We are passionate about taste, quality and responsibly sourced food. My husband co-founded and runs the multi award winning Trealy Farm Charcuterie based near Monmouth and we have close working relationships with many fellow artisan producers.  We welcome you to Y Felin with a gourmet gift.

We also have an ‘honesty freezer’ with a good selection of frozen local Welsh mountain lamb, mutton, Welsh Black steak and rare breed pork and chicken. You can also use the bread maker and wake up to the smell of your own fresh bread!  Please enjoy.

Food beyond Y Felin house:

The area is increasingly becoming a ‘foodie’ destination and we especially recommend the Wynnstay in Machynlleth, Ynyshir in Pennal, Bwty Mawddach in Llanelltyd, Dylanwad Da and Y Meirionydd in Dolgellau, and the Cross Foxes between Tal Y Llyn and Dolgellau. There is also a great coffee shop ‘T.H.Roberts’ in Dolgellau (01341 423552) – worth a visit to see the building – a former Ironmonger’s and listed – as well as to taste the coffee. This is also an Internet café.  If you are looking for comfort and tradition, Hennighan’s of Machynlleth has won the National Fish and Chip Awards for Wales 2014.

There are good butcher’s shops in all local towns; a good deli and vegetable shop in Machynlleth. In Aberdyfi you will also get especially good fish and chips!  In Tywyn there is an excellent fishmonger, a ‘True Taste’ award winner, called ‘Gill’s Plaice’ – she really knows her stuff and can recommend how to cook as well as what to buy. The EuroSpar in Dolgellau does an excellent job of sourcing local food and supplies fish from Gill’s Plaice.

There are regular Farmer’s markets in the area and a weekly market every Wednesday at Machynlleth (every Wednesday since 1291 in fact) selling everything from clothes to organic veg.
