  • Historic manor house with period features and grand living spaces - perfect for group holidays
  • Set in 4.5 acres of magnificent grounds, about 1.5 miles from Aberdyfi
  • Ideal base for long walks through Snowdonia and Cardigan Bay and days out on the beach
Property code: DY051

An exquisite former country manor, dating back some 400 years, with an abundance of character and beautiful mature gardens, within reach of the beach and coastal walks.

Take a step back in time when you stay at this impressive holiday home set within its own gorgeous grounds, extending to almost five acres, and with space for up to 11 guests. Also welcoming two dogs, the four-bedroom property is perfect for a group stay and might suit two families hoping to escape together. From here, head into Aberdyfi, 1.5 miles away, to spend time on the 3-mile-long beach, where you can swim, surf and paddleboard. Charter a boat to venture out into Cardigan Bay or walk along the Welsh Coast Path, looking for dolphins and porpoises. Plan days out in Snowdonia National Park: take the children to King Arthur’s Labyrinth, for example, 14.5 miles away in Corris.

Wander into this handsome, stone house to find yourselves in a striking reception hall with a beautiful staircase leading up to a galleried landing. Wander into the light-filled lounge to settle on the comfortable seating in front of a crackling wood burner. In the kitchen, find you have a large electric oven and five-burner gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, fridge, dishwasher, toaster and kettle. Prepare dinner in here too, then serve up at the large table, with the French windows open on warm days, or through in the elegant dining room. Wander through to the expansive drawing room afterwards, where there are more doors you can open during fine weather, and where you can all relax in front of a good film on the TV. Challenge each other to a table tennis tournament in the games room. Find you also have a utility room and separate WC downstairs. Wander upstairs to discover two super-king-size bedrooms, one with an extra single bed and both with en-suite bathrooms (one with bath, the other with bath and separate shower). There are also two double bedrooms, each with an extra single bed. These rooms share a family bathroom with bath and handheld shower, WC, bidet and handbasin. There is also an extra lounge at this level to which you can escape with your book for a few quiet moments.

Spill out into the established south-facing grounds to explore, watch the children play on the lawns and soak up the sunshine. Enjoy the variety of plants, discover the walled garden and treat yourself to a glass of chilled wine as the sun goes down. There is parking for four cars at the house.

We had a really lovely stay at this very grand spacious house. Overall all we had a fantastic stay; it was a very last minute booking so we appreciated the owners allowing us to be flexible with our dates. The open kitchen area with a fire was really lovely. Very spacious accommodation although with 4 bedrooms I don't think this property can sleep Read moremore than 8 adults - fine to have additional smaller children. Double beds are small though. 1.5 miles to the most lovely beach (drive only). Hide

Mid-West Wales is a land full of green hills and clear seas. With the spine of the Cambrian Mountains to the east and the hidden coves of the Ceredigion coastline carving out marvellous openings all along the western shoreline, it’s a mecca for those who crave outstanding natural surroundings. There are also charming villages and quaint seaside towns dotted here and there, giving you the chance to try a regional delicacy or speak to some friendly locals.

A thriving harbour resort just within the Snowdonia National Park boundaries, Aberdovey, meaning river mouth, also lies inside Wales’ only UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the Dyfi Biosphere. With Cader Idris looming in the distance, Aberdovey enjoys a complementary fusion of dense woodland and a golden beach where the River Dyfi meets Cardigan Bay.

Also near the River Dyfi are Pennal and Cwrt, two villages which lie on the River Sychan, which feeds the River Dyfi. Small in size but with natural grandeur, these villages have walks which provide magnificent vistas and if you’re lucky, you may even spot wild otters holding hands by the river’s edge.

Moving away from the river, you can follow the ‘Happy Valley’ which leads all the way to Tywyn. You’ll pass scenic splendour as the road twists and turns past the ‘Bearded Lake’. Tywyn is a beautiful seaside base for all types of excursions. Stroll the large, sandy beach or visit the Talyllyn Railway, that journeys deep into the hills.

We have a handpicked collection of self-catering properties along southern Snowdonia on the banks of the Dyfi Estuary. Whether it’s Aberdovey, Pennal and Cwrt or Tywyn, we’ve got dog-friendly, large, luxury and coastal accommodation to suit your needs.
