Glasfryn Cottages

Glasfryn Cottages consists of five charming, pet-friendly cottages nestled on the private Glasfryn Estate between Trefor and Pwllheli, Gwynedd. The collection offers private gardens, excellent facilities, woodburning stoves, and access to a natural 13-acre lake teeming with wildlife, making it ideal for romantic breaks and extended family holidays. Glasfryn Fawr, Coach House, Garden Cottage and Rose Cottage are within walking distance of each other, whereas Tan y Bryn is a little more "remote". A perfect base for exploring an area of outstanding natural beauty, the surroundings enjoy idyllic countryside where you can visit Glasfryn Parc – North Wales’ premier activity centre or embark on a coastal walk along the spectacular Ll?n Peninsula, which hosts beaches, bays and sea-cliffs unlike any other in Wales. Dine out at nearby eateries such as Y Madryn or Tafarn Y Fic for traditional pub grub, whilst Pwllheli hosts waterfront restaurants and classic fish and chip shops. Explore Criccieth to visit the hilltop ruins of Castell Criccieth and relax along Criccieth Beach, or perhaps make your way to Abersoch for a variety of watersports, Abersoch Golf Club and the nearby Plas yn Rhiw, a National Trust 16th-century manor overlooking the sea. Snowdonia National Park, Ffestiniog Railway, Welsh Highland Railway and the Italian-style village of Portmeirion are all within easy reach. A very warm welcome awaits you at Glasfryn Cottages.

The property

Trefor 3.9 miles.

Glasfryn Fawr, a stunning 17th-century farmhouse, is located in the peaceful Pencaenewydd near Trefor and the lively Pwllheli.

The Glasfryn Estate was once the family home of Clough Williams-Ellis, whose quirky Italianate village of Portmeirion is only a short drive away, but it now offers superb family accommodation for a wonderful break to North Wales at any time of year, with picture-perfect gardens and a traditional farmhouse kitchen ideal for a family gathering.

With an oil-fired Stanley range and seating for ten in the kitchen/diner, you can make the most of your time with loved ones by preparing a delicious meal while catching up on the day's events.

The sitting room provides a place for the group to unwind, and in the cooler months, you can light the woodburning stove and snuggle up on the plush sofas after a day of exploring the area.

When it's time to sleep, the group has five bedrooms to choose from, including a ground-floor double with en-suite, which is ideal for those with limited mobility.

The bathroom and four additional bedrooms are located on the first floor and include a master double with en-suite, another double, and two twins, one of which has a zip/link feature, providing plenty of options for a multigenerational family to rest.

Outside, sip a glass of wine while reading a good book, or dine alfresco in the evenings in the beautiful garden that wraps around the property for privacy.

Glasfryn Fawr is an unbeatable home-from-home for a holiday to remember for years to come, with large lawned gardens and seasonal flowers, including pretty hydrangeas, and a private lake you are surrounded by spectacular scenery with the mountains of Snowdonia in the distance.
