Pen-Ilin Ref: W41140

Spacious barn conversion set in several acres of the Snowdonia National Park with stunning lake and mountain views

Pen-Ilin is situated at the base of the mountains of Arenig Fach and Arenig Fawn and from the windows of the main large vaulted living areas and master bedroom are stunning views directly over Lake Celyn. This detached property is sited in an area of SSI, where an abundance of unusual wildlife are regularly spotted.

The site extends to 9.5 acres with Pen-Ilin enjoying its own secluded areas, private parking but sharing access with the cottage to a private wood and a large paddock and river frontage. Enjoy a walk through the paddock where the paths wind through breathtaking mountain scenery, pass secluded lakes and where native falcons are often seen overhead. The first things that most visitors comment on when they visit is the tranquil setting and the sense of space within the barns interior, and although the general theme is contemporary, many original features, such as a large stone fireplace and exposed beams have been retained. Golf can be found nearby. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 7 miles.

Ty Mawr Ref: OCC

Dramatic views across Cardigan Bay to the distant mountain range of the Snowdonia National Park form an attractive backdrop for this idyllically located, spacious 18th-century house. Owned by the same family for many generations, it is comfortable and has been carefully maintained to offer a high standard of holiday accommodation, and stands amid its own mature, well-tended gardens with views over a man-made lake stocked with fish . Full of charm and character, it adjoins another property, yet is completely self-contained with a separate driveway. There is a small detached holiday cottage also within the grounds for two people to let by owners.
The sheltered southern coast of the Lleyn Peninsula harbours a wealth of sandy beaches and coves; the nearest being a mere ¾ mile away. Here a temperate climate offers excellent opportunities for outdoor activities; sailing, windsurfing and water-skiing facilities abound, and there are some beautiful walking paths along the shore. Some of Wales’ best beaches are to be found an easy drive away at the tip of the Peninsula; Abersoch and Aberdaron in particular offer wide sandy stretches popular with watersports enthusiasts. Just over a mile away, lies the coastal town of Criccieth, where there is a sandy beach at low tide and a 13th-century castle perched on a rocky headland. Across the bay the dramatically located Harlech Castle stands as another testament to more turbulent times. For shopping, good dining and a weekly street market, visit the bustling port town of Pwllheli (6 miles), while the holiday centre of Porthmadog has a wide range of facilities for rock climbing, riding, canoeing and fishing. From here it is an easy drive to visit the beautiful Italianate village of Portmeirion, with its forest walks, gardens and sandy beach. For a novel mode of transport along the coastline, hop aboard the Blaenau Ffestiniog Narrow-Gauge Railway, which still operates on a line first opened in 1836. Excellent walking and mountaineering locally. Five golf courses nearby (negotiated rates for local course). Horse riding nearby. Shops 1¼ miles.

Living room. Dining room. Sitting/TV room. Farmhouse-style kitchen/breakfast room. Games room. Separate toilet. First floor: Two double bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom and toilet. Two twin bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room and toilet. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

The Towers Ref: OTR

The Towers is a substantial harbour master’s mansion (for a harbour that was never made), and was built by John Platt in 1872. On a grand scale of over 5000 square feet, in a Gothic chateau style, it has been refurbished to an excellent standard. Located yards from the beach, this detached property boasts flexible holiday accommodation including a fine cinema room with a beautiful hand painted domed ceiling, dining room with seating for 20 people, beach room, library and games room. There is also a large kitchen with breakfast room, ten bedrooms and living room. Of particular note is the superb Balinese bedroom with its ornate beamed and Hessian ceiling which like many rooms, including the fantastic lantern tower, benefits from magnificent views across to the Isle of Anglesey and Puffin Island. The lawned garden has an attractive ornamental pond with a Japanese three-tier fountain surrounded by a 9-hole putting green. The driveway extends to the rear of the property where there is a further garden area and small orchard and parking for 10 vehicles.
The walled town of Conwy lies close by between Llandudno and Bangor, and with the West Coast train line passing through both towns, London is only 3 hours away. Conwy is home to an elegant 13th-century castle built by Edward I, as well as other buildings of note - such as the 14th-century timber and stone Aberconwy House (NT), the splendid Plas Mawr and what is reputed to be the smallest house in Britain. For art lovers, there is the Royal Cambrian Academy (where displays of Welsh artists’ work are shown during the annual summer exhibition). As well as being the major shopping town for the area, Llandudno is also home to Venue Cymru theatre which has a range of touring productions. The town also has two beaches and the famous views from the top of the Great Orme (679ft), jutting out into the Irish Sea, which can be explored by tramway, cable car or on foot. In the other direction is Ynys Môn (the Isle of Anglesey) with its 125 miles of coastline of fantastic beaches and rocky coves. For walkers, there are plenty of routes to explore - including The Cambrian Way which begins in Conwy, and winds its 274 miles to Cardiff, passing through some of Wales’ most wonderful upland scenery, and taking in the Carneddau, the Glyders, the Snowdon Massif, Cadair Idris and the Brecon Beacons. Bodnant Garden is a further attraction in the area for visitors, providing displays of rhododendrons and laburnum in May/June and other colour throughout the year. Horse riding nearby. Ideal for golf. Station 100 yards. Shops and pub ½ mile.

The Log House Ref: OQF

Set in extensive, private woodland grounds which extend to over 25 acres, The Log House nestles within a mixed ‘old plantation’ forest offering the most outstanding ‘get away’ retreat. Located just outside Capel Curig and only six miles from Snowdon, the house was built over 110 years ago by a Norwegian sea captain. It was later owned by the Lloyd George family during the 1920s, reputedly used by the prime minister at the height of his powers as a hideaway for himself and his girlfriends! Guests are free to roam the grounds which are available for their exclusive use. Features include a lively tributary of the River Llugwy which tumbles down the mountain side on the eastern boundary, a tennis court, cross country running track, summer house (built by Lloyd George), an orchard and football pitch! There is also a small heated outdoor swimming pool available by prior arrangement. Follow tracks around the grounds, some of which take you to the top of Alt Goch, and these offer amazing 360 degree views of Snowdonia. Moel Siabod, a 872m high summit (from which it is reputedly possible to see 13 of the 14 highest peaks in Wales on a clear day), can be conquered direct from the house and forms an amazing back drop to the lower gardens. The house is surrounded by terraced gardens and for those with the outdoor spirit, a fire pit with seating is available on an upper terrace for evenings around an open fire. A short climb up a path leads to the property which provides a unique and cosy atmosphere only a log house can generate. Views of the lower ranges of Snowdonia can be seen from two bedrooms and the rear terrace. Nearby Betws-y-Coed is known for its bustling shops, pubs and restaurants. Swallow Falls are a 30-minute walk (or 5 minutes’ drive), and Llanberis, Snowdon and the outdoor pursuits of Capel Curig are easily accessible. Shops 2 miles.
