Good sized well equipped kitchen and three other rooms on the ground floor in which to spread out. Bedrooms roomy and comfortable, bathrooms plentiful and well fitted out. Plenty of hot water. Great location, the house was very private and quiet, yet close to shops, pubs etc. Lovely safe garden, loads to do in the area. We paid for the hot tub and really made good use of it. The decking area was a real sun trap. Even better if: There were no oven gloves - not sure if this was an oversight or due to covid, but as we did lots of cooking it was inconvenient. Not all bathrooms had a bath mat, also inconvenient. We could have done with bigger mugs as we are all big tea drinkers. The heating was turned off, and we had no control of it. As it got quite cool in the week, the property became cold. We did contact the managers who set it to come on briefly, but it seemed inadequate and we had no control of it to allow us to respond the the changing temperatures. These comments are meant for constructive feedback and were overall minor. We had a great holiday and we would recommend this property. Reviewed by NaomiMay 2022 "Just home after an amazing holiday at Plas Y Bryan Hall, myself, 3 sons, 3 daughters in law and 7 grandchildren ages 4-13." The house and grounds are just stunning and gave the children so much freedom and space to enjoy whilst being completely safe. The new addition of a hot tub was the icing on the cake add a fire pit to toast marshmallows and everyone was happy.The 7 bed rooms were delightful and with bathrooms for all. Plenty indoor space for cosy film nights by the fire and a snug for the children, we loved the kitchen table and the formal dining room. So much to do close by with highlights being a very early climb up Snowdon, forest sledging and bouncing in a slate mine! and a trip by walking to Llanbedr station for the train, then miniature railway and boat to Barmouth. Beaches quiet and stunning. Everything was perfect I can’t recommend the house high enough, we’ve already booked for next year. Sharon & family. Reviewed by SharonApr 2022 "This lovely large cosy home was perfect for our family group of 10 adults and 5 children, aged between 1 and 7." We found it very well-equipped and it coped with all our our wet walking gear, thanks to some pretty inclement weather! The position is stunning and is a great base to explore beautiful Gwynedd from. It was easy to get to Criccieth, Portmeirion, Harlech, Barmouth and of course, many stunning walks, waterfalls and beaches! We would love to return.

Reviewed by JuliaDec 2021 "We enjoyed our stay at Pen y Bryn Hall." The house is well situated at a walkable distance from the village, and is perfect for large or multi-generation groups due to the plethora of bedrooms and bathrooms. Helpful owner and house manager. Reviewed by DavidSep 2021 "A perfect holiday home, extremely spacious for a large group yet very homely with wonderful period features." All bedrooms and bathrooms were extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean with luxurious fittings. The perfect relaxing getaway -clean air, stunning views of the Llyn Peninsula and the best views of the night sky we've ever seen. We all loved watching the gliders soaring across the sky and are determined to have a flying experience on our next trip. Reviewed by YvonneSep 2021 "As we drove up to Plas Bryn Hall it was one of those WOW!" moments. The house, gardens and views took our breath away. Our family group of 14, ages raging from 65 to 9 months had a great stay. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all of a very high standard. Lots of period features throughout the house. The decking area gets the sun all day and the most stunning sunsets in the evening. The 6 children enjoyed exploring the gardens. They had great fun. Lots of extra touches in house for children with books Duplo set games both electronic and board games. Although great weather so they had a screen free week. Just a note to any one who orders a shopping delivery. Their sat navs take them to an entirely different place down the road. Luckily the driver phoned us so we could direct him. Lots of things to do around the area too. We would definitely come back again. Reviewed by JohnAug 2021 "Wes had the most wonderful stay at Plas-y-Bryan Hall." The house is stunning inside and out with fabulous views and the most amazing sunsets. The bedrooms are furnished beautifully and the bathrooms are modern and extremely well done. The facilities are beyond what I expected, every kitchen gadget you could need, plenty of crockery and cutlery, multiple fridges. The tv with surround sound is perfect for movie nights in and there is plenty to choose from with sky, Netflix and many others provided. The children also loved having the PlayStation, WII, and various board games to choose from. The outside deck has fabulous views and gets the sun all day. The village of Llanbedr is a 5 minute walk and has great pubs which all do good food. A visit to shell island and Harlech castle both nearby are a must. Such a wonderful place, we hope to be back in the future. Reviewed by CarolineJul 2021 "Fascinating house, great location and base for exploring." Tranquil setting within farmland yet a short stroll down the hill into village with small shop and places to eat. We were a family group of 6 and the house can comfortably accommodate many more with plenty of space to spread out in the downstairs rooms. The bedrooms are lovely, each with their own character and the bathrooms are modern and spotless. This is a very large but very homely property. The house overlooks an airfield - but don’t be put off as the only activity we saw was a few small prop planes take off and land on a couple of days - probably flight lessons. Charming rather than offensive. Amazing accessible beaches are minutes away by car. Local walks from house up the wooded valley to waterfalls or towards the sea through salt marsh are well worth it. Or for the more adventurous the mountains and trail bike routes beckon. Harlech and Barmouth are well worth a visit and that view from the bridge at Barmouth truly is sublime as were the sunsets from the main decked seating area. A great destination with something for everyone. Reviewed by MichelleJul 2021 "Llanbedr is a beautiful area ,beaches, rural walks, easy access to outdoor activities and pretty villages to visit."
