Gwrtheyrn is a traditional 14th century semi-detached farmhouse, once the home of the Lords of Gwrtheyrn, and is believed to be one of the oldest houses in Wales. Located on the owners working farm, surrounded by fields and countryside, situated in the Snowdonia National Park on the outskirts of the coastal village of Dyffryn Ardudwy. This charming cottage is a perfect base from which to explore the many attractions and beaches the area has to offer and would suit couples, friends and is also great for families. The house has a wealth of original oak beams and panels, beautifully complimented by more modern handcrafted oak ledge and brace doors with wrought iron furniture, modern kitchen and bathrooms and lovely soft furnishings. Lovingly renovated and restored offers an extremely warm Welsh welcome, the charm and character is in abundance, starting with the sitting room which has plenty of comfortable seating and boasts an impressive inglenook fireplace with open fire. The kitchen is well-appointed with integrated appliances, extending to a well-proportioned dining area is a lovely place to sit as a family and enjoy a late supper or a more leisurely breakfast before setting out on a day’s adventure. There is a ground floor bedroom with en-suite shower room, ideal for guests who may find stairs a little challenging. Three further bedrooms, all individually styled are arranged on the first floor and serviced by a shower room and a family bathroom. Outside, the private garden and picnic area adds to the luxury and homely atmosphere of this farmhouse, and the children will love the play area and if rain does stop play then the external games room is a fantastic addition for the whole family to enjoy some quality time together, rising to the challenge with a few games of darts, pool, table football or table tennis! This cottage is ideally situated with a fantastic pub and restaurant within easy reach and just a short drive away you will find golden beaches and sand dunes that stretch for miles along this stunning coastline. Also close by is Harlech with its majestic 13th century castle, now a World Heritage Site, and the most impressive of all the castles built in North Wales by Edward I.
