Farmhouse | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
The magnificent landscape of Snowdonia and the coastline of Cardigan Bay are easily accessible, so whether it's a day on the beach or a hike to a magical waterfall, the choice is yours.
This is a beautiful 17th century stone farmhouse, which can sleep up to ten people in 5 bedrooms. It is set in park-like gardens with views across farmland to the sea.
The main bedroom has a king size bed and leads into a pretty en suite bathroom with original fish painted tiles. The middle bedroom has bunk beds. The third 'pink' bedroom has a pretty double "half tester" bed with matching furniture. The fourth bedroom has two single beds. Downstairs there is a further double room.
All the rooms have pretty views across the gardens, some to the coast of Cardigan Bay, which is only 4 miles away. All beds have duvets and synthetic pillows. Antique furniture, original paintings, books and magazines add to the feeling of this being a home away from home.
In the kitchen you have tiled floors, a dresser and an oil fired range for heating hot water and cooking. In addition to the Stanley cooker there is a built in electric hob and oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, electric kettle, food processor and dishwasher to make cooking a pleasure. The large pine table with matching chairs fits well into this spacious kitchen/diner, and overlooks the garden.
The drawing room has a big stone inglenook fireplace with a 'clearview' log burner. The room is furnished in pretty country house style with antiques and original paintings. Fitted carpets and rugs add to the comfortable feel. This room has no television but the snug has a tv / dvd and video player. The tv has sky freeview channels. This room is ideal as a kids' room and has an inglenook fireplace with log burner.
There is a downstairs wc with washbasin next to the kitchen. There is also an utility room which has a toilet, shower, an inbuilt washing machine, tumble dryer and a Belfast sink. Upstairs there are a further two bathrooms one of which is an en-suite to the king size bedroom.
Wi Fi is available in a separate office on the Glasfryn estate dedicated exclusively to guests, but guests should be aware that as we are in a very rural location the service can sometimes be intermittent. We are currently in the process of upgrading all our WiFi facilities in our holiday cottages and hope to have them all online very soon.
The house is centrally heated and logs are supplied free of charge. Freshly laundered bed linen is provided and beds are made up prior to arrival. Kitchen towels are supplied and electricity is included in the price. Cots and high chairs are available by arrangement as are personal towels at £5 per person.
Pets are welcome - provided dogs are kept on a lead. The expansive garden has a picnic table and a barbecue. Home-made meals can also be sourced from our farm shop.
The house is available as of 4 pm on the Friday. We kindly ask guests to vacate by 10 am on the morning of departure.

The Gwynedd region
Plas Glasfryn is a beautiful mansion house situated in the Llyn Peninsula. For generations this has been the home of the Williams-Ellis family.
In 1994, Jonathan and Helen Williams-Ellis began to develop Glasfryn Activity Park, which is now one of Wales' best family attractions.
All five cottages are situated on the estate and each have their own private gardens tended by Tilly Jones, the gardener with a little help from her Scottie dog, Huxley.
We're great dog lovers here at Glasfryn and welcome guests who want to bring their pets with them on holiday.
All five Glasfryn cottages are situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The magnificent landscape of Snowdonia and the coastline of Cardigan Bay are easily accessible, so whether it's a day on the beach or a hike to a magical waterfall, the choice is yours.
The Llyn Peninsula is a wild landscape of unspoilt natural scenery, ringed by a stunning coastline. This is great walking country and in its entirety the Llyn Coastal Path is 146km or 84 miles long, extending from Caernarfon along the north Llyn coast to Uwchmynydd and then to Porthmadog. The scenery is varied: small coves and wide expanses of sand, rugged cliffs and ever changing seas.
From Glasfryn, the walk to the iron age hill fort of Tre'r Ceiri is less than a 10 minute drive away. Another enchanting spot is St Cybi's well, a healing well of immense charm and atmosphere.
Access is easy to the sandy beaches and rocky inlets of the Peninsula (again a 10 minute hop in the car).
The small market town of Pwllheli with its award winning marina & blue flag beach is 4 miles away. There are shops, cafes and restaurants aplenty plus a cinema, public library and leisure centre. Abersoch is 10 miles away and Criccieth, Porthmadog, Aberdaron and Nefyn are all within easy reach.
There are numerous historic and scenic attractions such as the Snowdonia National Park, Ffestiniog Steam Railway, Welsh Highland Steam Railway, Caernarfon, Criccieth and Harlech Castles and the Italianate village of Portmeirion designed by Clough Williams-Ellis, a family forebear.
Within a mile of all the cottages is Glasfryn Activity Park, open all year and guaranteed to have something for all family members. A thrilling go kart track, an exciting quad bike trek, ten pin bowling and a jungle themed soft play area are just some of the attractions on offer. The restaurant and café/bar is complemented by our very own farm shop which stocks locally reared welsh black beef, lamb, game, cheese and ready made meals.
Nearest Train: Pwllheli 4 miles, Bangor 22 miles (3.30 hrs. London, Virgin trains).
Nearest Bus stop: 1 mile.
The village shop of Londis in Y Ffor is very well stocked for newspapers and all basic essentials.
