The Property is a large, detached Edwardian residence set in 1.5 acres of grounds and landscaped gardens within the Snowdonia National Park. It occupies an enviable position with superb views over Cardigan Bay towards the Llyn Peninsula, and to the surrounding Snowdon and Rhinog ranges.

Access to the first floor is given via an exquisite staircase, featuring barley sugar turned balusters, mahogany hand rails, newel posts and hand-carved mahogany embellishments. A large half landing acts as the perfect stop-gap and offers views over the surrounding countryside and coastline beyond. The two principle rooms at the front of the property offer a range of period features and enjoy far-reaching views over Cardigan Bay towards the Llyn Peninsula. The sitting room enjoys original egg and dart plaster cornice, a magnificent ceiling rose, arched recess with a lovely fireplace and wood-burning stove, whilst the dining room offers original marquetry wood peripheral flooring throughout with geometric and Fleur de lys insets of various woods. The children’s TV and games room is sure to be a hit with the younger members of the group and the downstairs art deco-style cloakroom with basin and WC is there for guest’s convenience. The kitchen is well appointed with a cooking Range and breakfast table and chairs, and the utility/boot room with its own wood-burning stove is an ideal place for drying clothes.

The village of Llanbedr has shops and three pubs, as well as offering bike hire, mountain and river walks and is situated next to the dunes of a nature reserve and so a wide variety of birds and wildlife can be seen.
