Castell Y Gwynt is a stylish, spacious and totally refurbished Dormer Bungalow. Positioned in a quiet cul-de-sac in the upper part of Harlech - affords it the most panoramic and magnificent views ranging from the mountains of Snowdon, the Lleyn Peninsula, the beautiful sandy beach at Harlech and Royal St.Davids Golf Course. It faces Criccieth and Portmadog and is just as beautiful at night to see the sun set either over the sea or behind the mountains (depending on the time of year) - and the twinkling lights all around the bay - you won't be disappointed. You can hear the sea - it is that close.

The decking allows extra relaxing area outside and has front and back lawns if you prefer.

"just the best way to get together with family and friends for a relaxing and beautiful break"

Castell Y Gwynt is just as it says 'on the tin' - the perfect home from home in a beautiful setting, where you won't want to leave the deck or the sofa for more than the time it takes t… More

Thanks Angie - I'm so glad you and your family had such a lovely holiday. See you next year - Jude and Clive xx

"Excellent accomodation in a beautiful costal village"

Myself and a group of friends stopped at Castell Y Gwynt in June 2013. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were impressed with the high spec décor and standard of the property. Each room is comfortable and spacious, the most impressive been the open plan living/dining area, from which breath taking views across the bay can be enjoyed. There is a large decking area with seating and enough parking if a group of you want to visit.

In Harlech there are a few nice coffee shops, restaurants and a pub which we visited a few times during our stay. The locals are very friendly and food and drink prices are reasonable. The walk to the beach from Castell Y Gwynt is enjoyable through the village and alongside the golf course. The beach itself is relatively easy to access and was quiet considering we visited in summer months. There is also a beautiful castle on route to the beach which I believe is only a small fee to enter. During our time in Harlech we also took a trip to the neighbouring town of Barmouth which is busier than Harlech and has more shops and bars. Although we had a great day there and would definitely recommend a visit my friends and I preferred Harlech as it is quieter and more scenic.

If you are after comfortable living accommodation within which you wish to self-cater as well as access amenities easily set on the beautiful welsh coast I cannot think of anywhere better. I would definitely recommend a visit and plan to go back in the future.

"Ist class accomodation with magnificant views"

A wonderful weekend the house has everything you could need for a delux stay. views from the property are glorious as are the walks ( some steep hills though ). Local wine bars and resturants and pubs were good we sampled most of them !. This is in a great spot for exploring the local area - highly recommended.
