Treat yourselves to a peaceful and tranquil break in this luxurious 10 bedroom, C16th country house. The house sits snugly in the mountainous area of Snowdonia, North Wales, just a short walk from the sandy delights of the Llyn Peninsula and the bustling seaside town of Criccieth.

Sleeping up to 21 guests, this south facing, fantastic house is set in 9 acres of garden and woodlands and is perfect for large parties wanting to celebrate a special occasion!

Over 400 years old, this country home was once the home of the family of Lloyd George, the Liberal Prime Minister, in the late 1900s. More recently the property has been used as a lovely country hotel.

Throughout the summer months you can enjoy flower filled gardens, long evening walks and the space to fully unwind or play a game of tennis on the private tennis court.

Children love the freedom to play riotous games of football, rugby and cricket, or simply ride the tree swings, and play with the cat, dog, ponies and chickens. Outdoor amenities include:
- Hard-weather tennis court, with views down to Cardigan Bay.
- 4 x basic tennis rackets available. Please bring your own tennis balls.
- Gymnasium: located in the old coach house to the rear of the property, the gymnasium offers seven different stations.
