The Gatehouse of Cors Y Gedol Hall is a truly unique property. Built by the Vaughan family in the 14th century this imposing building now provides self catering accommodation for up to 7 people in one of the nicest parts of the Snowdonia national park. Having driven up the mile long drive from the coast road you cant help but be impressed by the gothic symmetry of the building. It stands of course as the welcome entrance to the great hall behind. Carved granite finials flank the central arch where lords and ladies in horse drawn carriages would pass through. And the arched windows with their sandstone mullions and a central cusp create a real fairytale look.

The central arch which bisects the house does mean the accommodation is unconventional. But I think that just adds to the character. The lounge and two of the bedrooms is on one side of the building whilst the kitchen and one more bedroom is on the other side. Having to pass through the covered central arch to get to the other side does mean that midnight trips to the fridge in your nightie might be a bit risky as the arch remains exposed on one side. But I'm guessing the sheep have probably seen it all before.

The kitchen has a country cottage feel and includes a dishwasher and washing machine as well as all the other essentials. The lounge is beautifully furnished. Original features such as old oak beams and arched windows are complimented by Laura Ashley curtains and tasteful antique ornaments. As I say, three bedrooms in total. One family room with a double bed and a single bed plus two more double rooms. All the bedrooms have a fantastic view over the surrounding grounds. Both sides of the building have a wc each. Which is a relief. One bathroom has a shower, the other a bath.

The North Wales region

This entire stretch of coastline boasts some wonderful clean and sandy beaches. Whilst walking in the mountains provides the perfect escape from the daily bustle. Too many adventure activities to list but drop me an email if you need pointing in the right direction.

Barmouth

As part of the Cors Y Gedol estate the cottage is set within impressive grounds. The manicured lawns, lake and the hall itself are further complimented by the surrounding ancient woodland. Beyond the trees the mountains of the national park rise up to the west. To the east miles of sandy beaches stretch out along the Cambrian coast. There are a couple of pubs in the village, a small grocery store, a post office and an excellent local butchers. The popular seaside town of Barmouth is a 10 minute drive to the south whilst the town of Harlech with its famous castle and links golf course is 10 minutes to the North.
