  • “Merrydown is a real home from home and very well appointed.”

    It has spectactular views over Shell Island and the hills towards Barmouth. The beach 'across' the road has a fab little cafe and very clean toilets and the Spar towards Barmouth has a great butchers. This bungalow was ideal for our needs and made an ideal base for a weeks touring to let my very elderly parents revisit the places we spent many a happy family holiday, and the massive dictionary and thesaurus was put to good use in our nightly cutthroat games of scrabble.

The property

Harlech 1.2 miles.

A wonderful detached bungalow, benefiting from an elevated position overlooking Shell Island and the Cardigan Bay coastline in the pretty Welsh village of Llanfair, just over a mile from the historic castle town of Harlech in the stunning Snowdonia National Park, North Wales.

This superb cottage has been fully-refurbished to a high standard throughout and offers stylish accommodation, providing an excellent holiday home for couples, friends or a family and being arranged all on one level is great for those who perhaps would otherwise struggle with stairs.

This quality cottage has a spacious sitting room with some wonderful views, comfy seating and a heart-warming wood burning stove, perfect for those cosy nights in watching your favourite films.

The superb well-equipped kitchen is spacious and open up to the dining room, creating a great family space to prepare meals together and enjoy.

All three bedrooms are airy and fresh, with comfy beds to make sure you get a good nights sleep, all serviced by a family bathroom, and there is an additional cloakroom for added convenience.

There is ample parking to the front and a garage providing secure storage for bikes and kayaks.

Enjoy this surprisingly mild climate, and wander out into the front garden, where a choice of sitting areas display wonderful vistas to sit and admire with a chilled drink.

The Zig Zag path takes you down to the peaceful and virtually unused southern end of the beach.

There is something to suit everybody in the local area; the unspoilt beaches at Llandanwg, with rock pools and miles of sandy beach at Harlech are within easy walking distance.

You can visit the majestic castle in Harlech, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and indulge at one of the towns many shops and restaurants.

You could use the pool or climbing wall at the leisure centre or have a round of golf at the Royal St David’s Golf Course next to the sand dunes.

Alternatively, visit the popular seaside resort of Barmouth for a fun-packed day at the beach as well as visiting Porthmadog, Portmeirion and Criccieth which are all within easy reach.

A superb location from which to explore this delightful area anytime of the year.
