Plas Gwynfryn is a magnificent and imposing Edwardian country house set in an 8-acre estate in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. It is a fine example of the arts and crafts architecture, and a perfect choice for a large family celebration or for groups of friends.
On the outskirts of the delightful village of Llanbedr, this house is just 4 miles from the UNESCO world heritage site of Harlech Castle, the internationally-known Royal St. David's links golf course and Harlech's 6-mile long sandy beach. The surrounding area is renowned for its spectacular mountain and coastal scenery, all of which provide magnificent walking, mountain biking, a variety of watersports and sandy beaches for family fun. Shop and pub 10 mins walk.
The village of Llanbedr nestles alongside the river Artro, between The Rhinogs, part of the Snowdonia Mountains, and the golden beaches of the North Wales coastline. With a mild climate due to its unusual positioning, and an exciting array of wildlife and birds, this charming village has good local shops and an excellent pub. The town of Harlech is just 3 miles away, home to the World Heritage Site of Harlech Castle, a majestic 13th century stronghold, the most impressive of all those built in North Wales by Edward I. Popular with golfers due to its famous Royal St. David's course, Harlech also has some good quality restaurants and a magnificent six-mile long sandy beach, perfect for wonderful walks and family fun. Nearby Barmouth offers the amazing Panorama Walk along the Mawddach Estuary, giving breathtaking vistas, which were described by John Ruskin as “the most sublime view in Europe” and a harbour from which you can catch a ferry to Fairbourne for a ride on the miniature railway, or a boat trip out to sea to try your hand at mackerel fishing. With Snowdonia National Park and beautiful Cardigan Bay to discover, this is a fantastic holiday location at any time of the year.
