Magnificent Mansion House, Tywyn

This magnificent and very comfortable family home is set in an acre of lovely gardens and bluebell woodland. It is surrounded by a further three acres within the Llanfendigaid Estate - scenic farmland with magnificent views of beautiful scenery and glimpses of the sea. There is a small sand and shingle beach nearby and even a 'private' request train station on the Barmouth line. The house is perfect for those (old and young) looking to recreate Enid Blyton adventures - your own 'private' beach with caves, a rope swing in the woods, secret cupboards and hidden doorways.

Llanfendigaid is listed by CADW as Grade II - an award only given to historic houses of exceptional interest and quality. This large and elegant house is packed full of antiques, history and character - it is well loved and has a warm friendly feel. Although some parts of the house are a little 'shabby chic'; this doesn't distract at all from the amazing feel and magnificence of the property.

Entrance to the house is through the large hallway with historic portraits and views across front garden. The pleasant drawing room has a log burning stove, sofas, stereo/DVD/CD radio, books and magazines, and a spacious living room provides another log burning stove, large corner sofa, flatscreen TV and pretty window seats. The dining room is a magnificent room with historic portraits - see who you recognise - and dining table and refectory style seating for 20. The kitchens (yes there are two) have ample storage, a cream Aga, an electric Rangemaster stove, washing machine/dryer, microwave, dishwasher, very large fridge and chest freezer.

The first floor is approached via two staircases - one from the main hallway and the rear stairs from the kitchens - onto a large landing with antique rocking horse and stunning sea views. On this floor are five bedrooms; the main bedroom has a super kingsize bed, a walk-in wardrobe and a wooden cot in an adjoining nursery annex. Two bedrooms have kingsize beds, one double and one with twin beds. Also on this floor is a spacious bathroom with a large bath, large separate shower, basin and separate WC and a shower room with walk-in shower, basin and WC. There are a further four bedrooms on the second floor - a double 'Africa' styled bedroom with wooden cot and two low level sash windows (please supervise children), two twin rooms and a small but interesting shaped single room with some restricted headroom - and a bathroom with rolltop bath, WC and washbasin.

Guests at Llanfendigaid have use of a 28' x 14' indoor heated swimming pool. This is shared with Llanfendigaid, two other cottages and people staying at the small Caravan Club CL (certified location) on the estate. This is restricted to five pitches and is a good distance from the main house and secluded by trees. The estate also boasts its own small walled garden where vegetables and other produce are grown - these are available to guests to buy subject to availability.

The house is approached from a private driveway, which sweeps through the lawned front gardens from the lane. There is some outdoor furniture at the front of the house overlooking the croquet lawn and plenty of additional seating and a firebowl (bring your own charcoal) in a secluded barbecue area set back from the lawns. It provides an excellent hideaway for evening dining, although it is a walk back to the fridge! There is ample parking and guests also have use of 300 acres of farmland, woodland walks and seating benches with some of the best views in Wales. Please note there is a stream in the grounds so children should be supervised. Children should also be supervised in and around the swimming pool.

Llanfendigaid is not suitable for rowdy parties as it is very old and not robust enough although more sedate parties are fine. If you are looking for somewhere to hold a rowdy party, please let us know as we may be able to suggest a better alternative.

£300 security deposit requested please.

Electricity, oil central heating and Aga cooker included.

Bed linen and towels provided. Please bring your own beach towels.

Two cots and a high chair are available. A stairgate is available for the rear staircase - the design and width of the front staircase makes it unsuitable for a stairgate but if the doors from the dining room to the main hallway are closed, this still gives ample space for little ones to explore without having access to the front staircase.

WiFi is available but given the location of the estate it is satellite based which is priced by the provider on a usage basis. For this reason only access for simple browsing and email is suggested - all bookings will receive 2 x free vouchers for 500Mb of data. Additional data vouchers are available from the owner subject to an additional fee. A Skype telephone is available and again this is charged as used.

LocationNorth Wales

North Wales showcases some of the UK's most varied landscape, from the snow-capped mountains of Snowdonia to the beaches of the Llyn Peninsula. Indeed, it is one of the only parts of Britain where you can be in the mountains in the morning and at the seaside by the afternoon. The diverse animal life of the region reflects this, with everything from otters to ospreys and seals to dolphins.

Not many places are imbued with such history and heritage, which is reflected throughout the region from cottages to castles! Attractions abound, with zoos and farms, steam railways and activity centres. There are regular events from international cultural festivals and shows to family fun days.

The area also offers a huge range of outdoor activities; walking, cycling, fishing, golf and water-sports to name only a few. In many parts of North Wales the spoken language is Welsh, not English, although people who cannot or will not speak the latter are rare, and signposts and other notices always display their message in both languages.
