  • "We had a beautiful stay at Bennar Fawr."

    We were looking for an extra special place to accommodate all our family of 15, and we found it. The furnishings and decor are both beautiful and consistent throughout the house. The jacuzzis and sauna are an added luxury that we really enjoyed. The property is only a 10-15 minute walk from the beach where we enjoyed incredible sunsets and walks. Such a bonus! This property is extra special, with plenty of room to relax individually and gather together. The kids loved the garden and the huge kitchen and dining space is wonderful! Being able to all eat around one table was so special. The owner and property manager both went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was a success and provided excellent customer service. We made some special memories at Bennar Fawr and hopefully will be able to return to this beautiful home again to make more. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

The property

Dyffryn Ardudwy 1.7 miles.

Resting by the coast near Dyffryn Ardudwy, North Wales is this remarkable, detached house of Bennar Fawr.

A historic property that dates back to the 15th century, Bennar Fawr is ideal for a large family celebration or gathering, with its stunning and spacious interiors, outdoor spaces and ample off-road parking for up to 15 cars!

You will be wowed by Bennar Fawr's marvellous exterior as you pull up outside; take in the sea breeze and the landscaped gardens before entering the impressive dwelling.

After an adventurous day out, there is nothing better than unwinding, and Bennar Fawr provides plenty of that, thanks to its numerous sitting areas, including two well-decorated sitting rooms; both feature TVs.

Move across the ground floor to find a spacious snug that can seat all the group, where you can enjoy a catch up over coffee, or perhaps you'd prefer to catch the sunny rays in the conservatory?

When you're feeling peckish, make your way to the large kitchen/diner, a very stylish spot that would please any aspiring chef, with its sleek fittings hosting several ovens, hobs, dishwashers and even wine chillers!

Gather around the lengthy dining table to enjoy a grand meal with your loved ones, or simply savour a quick meal-to-go at the breakfast bar if you're eager to head out to the beach.

After dinner, choose between one of 10 beautifully appointed bedrooms, all enjoying names that reflect the region, with six of these enjoying identical en-suite shower rooms and resting on the ground floor, including five super-king-sizes, with two offering single sofa beds, along with a family room that features four single beds; ideal for the kids!

Venture upstairs to find five more bedrooms, with three of these resting in the west wing of the property and enjoying far-reaching views of the sand dunes, including two super-king-sizes sharing access to a fabulous shower room and bathroom, along with a king-size with an en-suite shower room.

Continue to the east wing to discover another super-king-size and a twin room that are situated close to an additional shower room.

The property also hosts two cloakrooms, to prevent those morning queues.

In the morning, the kids can play on the spacious lawns in the front and rear gardens, whilst you unwind in the sauna, summerhouse or the two spacious hot tubs.

Benar beach is just moments away from the house, where plenty of fun can be had in the sun and sand; be sure to visit Tal-y-bont afterward, where a hearty meal can be savoured at The Ysgethin Inn.

Dyffryn Ardudwy lies a short distance away and hosts all your amenities in one handy spot, including a hotel with a bar/restaurant, supermarket and a handful of intriguing attractions, from the Dyffryn Ardudwy Burial Chamber to the local art gallery.

Hop on the train from Dyffryn Ardudwy and run through the coastal scenery to Harlech, where a breathtaking castle, extensive beach and the vast Morfa Harlech National Nature Reserve await.

Barmouth can also be reached by train, and is home to another gorgeous beach, Traeth Abermaw, a hiking trail that provides panoramic views of the quaint town, along with a harbour where you can go crabbing or board a boat to the idyllic village of Fairbourne.

North Wales will provide you with so much to experience during your stay, with the Snowdonia National Park on your doorstep and picturesque settlements of Portmeirion and Dolgellau resting within easy reach.

An unforgettable staycation awaits at Bennar Fawr.

About the location


Harlech 5 miles; Barmouth 5 miles.

The pleasant village of Dyffryn Ardudwy quietly nestles between The Rhinogs, part of the Snowdonia Mountains, and the stunning golden beaches of the North Wales coastline. The unusual positioning of this charming village results in it having its own mild climate, as well as offering good local shops and pubs. The surrounding area has an exciting array of wildlife and birds including soaring buzzards. The small town of Harlech is just 4 miles away, dominated by its majestic 13th century castle which is a World Heritage Site, and the most impressive of all the castles built in North Wales by Edward I. Popular with golfers due to its famous Royal St. David's course, Harlech also boasts an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants. Nearby Barmouth offers an amazing Panorama Walk with breathtaking views and also a harbour from which you can enjoy a ferry to Fairbourne for a ride on the miniature railway or a boat trip out to sea to try mackerel fishing. With the delights of Snowdonia National Park and beautiful Cardigan Bay to discover, this is a fantastic holiday location at any time of the year.
