The property

This spectacular three-storey property, Bryn Henllan, is located in the bustling seaside town of Criccieth, Gwynedd.

Bryn Henllan is ideal for a large family or group, sleeping up to 12 guests, and is conveniently located within its own grounds with ample off-street parking in the heart of the town, with stunning views of the seashore and castle.

Behind the property’s stone-fronted façade is a newly renovated family house which blends original and contemporary features to provide a spacious, light-filled interior with original beams, exposed brickwork, wooden floors and high ceilings.

The airy entrance hall with original Victorian tiled floor leads to the well-equipped open-plan kitchen/diner, perfect for getting together around either the contemporary granite-topped breakfast bar or rustic wooden dining table.

Adjoining the kitchen is the utility area where you'll also find a drying room, cloakroom and wet-room for convenience, perfect for cleaning off after a day at the beach or hiking.

There is also direct access from the kitchen to the front and side terraces for al fresco dining or taking in the sweeping seascape over a drink. You can relax in one of three comfortable reception rooms: the elegant sitting room adjoining the dining area or the snug just off the entrance hall, both of which have woodburning stoves and an assortment of books and games to enjoy as a family, or the first-floor sitting room with its spectacular sea views where you can unwind and enjoy some peace and quiet in front of the electric stove and Smart TV.

The property’s six bedrooms are spread over two floors.

On the first floor are four spacious en-suite double rooms, two of which can be arranged flexibly as either twin or superking beds, whilst on the second floor are two bedrooms, a king and a twin, a study, and two contemporary bathrooms with underfloor heating.

Bryn Henllan offers the best of two worlds: picture perfect views and informal gardens surrounded by nature for private dining, picnics or drinks, whilst also being only a short stroll to Criccieth town itself with its array of eateries, pubs and shops. Enjoy some family-friendly activities, right on your doorstep in Criccieth, such as excursions up Criccieth Castle, walks along Marine Beach to the river Dwyfor’s estuary or along Neraig beach to Black Rock, or picnics on the sands of Morfa Bychan.

Nearby are also the attractions of Portmeirion Village, rides on the Mountain Railway to Snowdon, exploring the slate caverns at Llechwedd or the Sygun copper mine in Beddgelert.

For walkers the area is rich in hiking trails and picturesque circular walks, including trekking up Snowdon or trailing through the valley at Aber Glaslyn Pass.

For some friendly rivalry, try water sports, clay pigeon shooting, or go karting at Glasfryn Parc. If you enjoy history, the Lloyd George Museum is on your doorstep in Llanystumdwy, and a short drive away are St Cybi's Well and Caernarfon Castle with mediaeval architecture and breath-taking scenery.

Choose Bryn Henllan as your Gwynedd home, offering something for everyone.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £1000.

About the location


Porthmadog 5 miles; Portmeirion 8 miles; Abersoch 15 miles.

Often described as the 'Pearl of Wales on the shores of Snowdonia’, this delightful seaside town is situated just 5 miles from Porthmadog. The town’s 13th-century castle perches majestically on a rocky outcrop, dominating the skyline and offering superb views of Tremadog Bay and the Snowdonia mountains. Watersports enthusiasts will be delighted by the two beaches, whilst walkers and bikers are spoilt for choice by the proximity of the beautiful Snowdonia National Park. Stroll along the beaches, watch porpoises playing in the surf, or relax in the various pubs, restaurants and tea rooms, sampling the famous Cadwalader’s ice cream. Further afield, attractions such as Portmeirion’s wonderful Italianate gardens, the Ffestiniog railway in Porthmadog, Harlech Castle, Caernarfon Castle and the beautiful beaches and renowned golf courses of the Llyn Peninsula are all within an easy drive.
