Show More

The main house at Llanfendigaid was built in 1746, and its outbuildings have been sympathetically restored as further guest accommodation.

The estate is suitable for holidays with family and close friends, or for a special celebration.

The main house sleeps 17 people in 9 bedrooms with two bathrooms and two separate loos (one of which is in a shower room). Downstairs there is a comfortable drawing room, large dining room (with long table and benched seats), and large kitchen with an Aga.

Should you need further bedrooms, there is Dove Cottage (sleeps 4), Stable Cottage (sleeps 4), and the Cow Shed, which sleeps 6. Both of the cottages and the Cow Shed are self-contained holiday cottages, with their own kitchens and living spaces.

The house is surrounded by wooded gardens (with bluebells in the Spring), and there’s plenty of outdoor space for a BBQ or picnic.

There is also a heated swimming pool for the house and cottages to share.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“Llanfendigaid is on the southern end of the Snowdonia National Park, and the sea-views from the house are extraordinary.”

About the Location

The estate is off the main coastal road, the A493, close to the town of Aberdyfi. The nearest train station isTonfanau, which is about a mile away. The owners of the house very much recommend taking the train, as the route is one of the most beautiful in the UK.

Things To Do

Snowdonia National Park offers lots of distractions, such as pony treking, climbing, walking, mountain biking and road cycling. The nearby town of Aberdyfi has a few shops, and a great sandy beach with dunes to play hide-and-seek within.

For any guests interested in murder holes and looped battlements, the hills around Llanfendigaid boast the most amount of medieval castles.

For train enthusiasts, there’s the Great Little Trains of Wales, in which you can take lots of trips on trains that originally pulled slate from the mines.

If you’d like to have a simple day, the shingle beach is a mile from the house, and the walk to it is lovely.

Stunning location, accommodation brilliant for a family get together to celebrate a special birthday. House is huge and with 6 young children and 9 adults it was just perfect with plenty of room to escape the noise! We all slept well in very comfortable beds but found all the settees uncomfortable, tired and difficult to get off!! The dining table was just perfect and was home to evenings of playing Articulate with much fun especially with a drink or too. Walking distance to the train stop and we used this to go to Barmouth, but you could use it to get to many locations including Birmingham New Street. Had a great day out ( the only sunny day of the week) in Aberdovey which had everything for a seaside trip including crabbing and donkeys and retains its charm. The house is about 15 minutes drive to Tywyn but is otherwise in the middle of the country so we did an online shop with Asda for when we arrived. Internet access was almost impossible but it was great to have a break from it. All in all it was just perfect and when Graham the site manage retrieved our dry washing from the washing line just before it rained I don't think you could wish for anything better. Haven't given 5* because of the settees.Show less

Stayed 14 times previously during the 1980’s and 90’s, the main house has been upgraded sympathetically through modernisation of the bathrooms shower rooms and cloakrooms. The addition of log burners a welcome feature too. However nothing has been done to ensure the Aga in the kitchen is available for use, yet is a part of the rental agreement. A range cooker with two ovens can’t cater effectively for 17 when one of the ovens is not working, as was our experience throughout our 10day stay from 14th to 24th April 2018. There is no phone signal at all and the broadband provision is unreliable. The garden steps are now in a dangerous condition and require urgent attention to make them safe, currently they are an accident waiting to happen. Despite these negative comments I would book again ... I trust that action is taken to rectify the concerns raised"Show less

The property is amazing, amazing location and a fabulous price. The beds are so cosy and warm there is no worry about a bad nights sleep. The pool is a great bonus and is big enough for what you need from a relaxing holiday. The contact we had for organising this was great and made us feel even happier about coming here from my hen party. The WiFi is pretty iffy in the house but nothing you can’t sort from a little walk on the hills to get 4G. I would definitely go back here again, I’ve made some everlasting memories here. Thank you

18 of us stayed in the main house for my 40th birthday celebrations and had an amazing time. The house was perfect for us, ages ranged from 2 - 70 and the place was big enough for us to share time together and to escape for peace and quiet when needed! Beds were comfy, the house was spotlessly clean, the kitchen was well equipped and the swimming pool helped ease our aching bones after climbing Snowdon... Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

24 of us stayed at Llanfendigaid estate from Wednesday till Monday. We had booked the main house as well as the two cottages and the cowshed. All of us thought it was absolute perfection. The rooms were stunning with very comfortable beds. When you woke up in the morning you could hear the sea and the birds. The surroundings are stunning. The pool is such a nice addition. All properties are superbly equipped but if you needed anything extra Graham the grounds manager is very friendly and always there to help. The booking process was also very easy and it was lovely to meet the owner upon our arrival. The place is buzzing with history which is reflected in the main house. If you are thinking of booking this place, stop thinking and book, there is no possible way anyone will have any regrets after a stay here.

We have recently stayed at this fantastic house. Due to a large number of us we rented not only the main house but also both Dove Cottages and the brand new Cowshed. The accommodation was fantastic, the properties all very well laid out and furnished and very clean. Properties were warm and welcoming and we look forward to returning soon. Must also thank Graeme for the warm welcome! Many thanks,

House History

The Nanney-Wynn family have owned the Llanfendigaid Estate for almost nine hundred years. At its largest, the estate once reached along the Welsh coast from Harlech in the north, to Aberystwyth in the south. Now, the estate is contained within the Snowdonia National Park. The main house at Llanfendigaid was re-built in 1746 (it had been a ‘Welsh Long House’ up until then). Stable Cottage was originally built as stables (as you’d expect) in 1892, and Dove Cottage dates from 1868. The Cow Shed is thought to date from around the 1740’s. Three of the properties are listed by CADW as Grade II* (given only to historic houses of exceptional interest and quality). All of the properties have been listed as 4 Star by Visit Wales.
