As we pushed past a fragrant camellia and crossed over a little stone bridge to get to the front door, we knew that Llys Bennar was going to be a bit special.
An oak panelled hall way complete with antique chair and expensive looking pictures leads off to a well equipped kitchen which is filled with the mouth-watering smell of freshly baked bread, a much appreciated welcome gift from the owners, Sue and Richard. My photo of the breakfast room doesn’t do it justice perhaps. This nice bright room houses a huge long bench seat facing onto an impressive oak table. Perfect for family meals, board games and colouring in!
There’s also a small WC and a boot room come utility next to the kitchen. Ideal for our wellingtons and walking gear. Next door, the games room has a full sized pool table and a handy little docking station for our Ipod. Great fun on a warm evening with the patio doors opened up onto the back garden, drinking a beer and eating peanuts between shots.
The ground floor en suite bedroom has a super-king bed and would be perfect for grandma and granddad if they can be persuaded to come.
A central stairway leads you to the upstairs lounge. The lounge, once again, is a treasure trove of antique furniture and tasteful décor. Having this room upstairs is fantastic as the views are spectacular. Rolling sand dunes stretch out in front of you and behind them a crystal blue sea and a cloudless sky.
Two bathrooms and three more bedrooms upstairs. A very impressive master bedroom, a spacious and wonderfully sunny twin room and a smaller room with a set of bunk beds for the children .

The North Wales region
The wonderful Bennar Beach with its green coast award is the obvious attraction when you’re staying at Llys Bennar, and is only a 10 minute walk away. But perhaps because the area is renowned for its beautiful coastline the mountains behind are sometimes overlooked. Luckily maybe as unlike Snowdon itself, an hour to the north, the Rhinnog Mountains are ignored by many tourists and remains one of the Britain’s few true wildernesses.
Celtic hill forts, religious shrines, mighty medieval castles and revealing industrial remains will entertain the more cerebral. But Snowdonia is of course, fast becoming Britain’s activity capital. Mountain biking, white water rafting, pony trekking, rock climbing are all available nearby. We also found plenty of traditional pubs, charming tearooms serving home made cakes and stylish restaurants.
