The property

This wonderful, detached bungalow boasts an elevated position in the the lovely Welsh village of Talsarnau, four miles from the historic castle town of Harlech.

With a superb sweep of sandy beaches, far reaching views of open fields and the chocolate-box village of Portmierion within easy reach, Gwelfor is the place for you.

This spacious holiday accommodation makes a great base for families and friends wanting to explore North Wales and the Snowdonia National Park.

A lot of care has been taken to ensure that all your needs are catered for and the attention to detail is apparent from the moment you step inside.

It is tastefully furnished throughout to a high standard, with a light and bright interior and a warming palette of soft creams and neutral tones to create a relaxing ambiance.

The sitting room is fresh and warm in its welcome, where you can sit with your loved ones around the woodburning stove and watch your favourite movie.

The dining room is equally inviting and perfect for enjoying a family get-together with a well-appointed kitchen and utility/boot room.

Three bedrooms are well-appointed for your needs, with the two main bedrooms benefiting from panoramic views and super king-size beds which are zip/link, so can be made up as twin rooms if you prefer.

The master bedroom also has a modern en-suite shower room, whilst the family bathroom serves the other two bedrooms.

Outside, there is a small lawned garden and two patio areas, providing the perfect spot to enjoy the views of the countryside stretching across Harlech castle, Cricieth Castle, Afon Dwryd Estuary to port Merion and onto Mount Snowdon.

This outdoor space allows you to sit and relax with a good book or enjoy a glass of wine late into a warm summer evening.

There is something to suit everybody in the local area, with the unspoilt beaches at Harlech, where you can visit the majestic castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site or have a round of golf at the Royal St David’s Golf Course.

There are numerous walks from the bungalow and if you are seeking thrills and spills then head over to or visit the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland railway just a few miles away at Porthmadog where you can enjoy all the activities at Llechwedd slate caverns, Zip World Titan (the largest zip zone in Europe), Zip World Caverns and Bounce Below.

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.

About the location


Harlech 4 miles; Porthmadog 5 miles.

Talsarnau is a small traditional Welsh village situated in a magnificent position between the mountains and the sea, and only 4 miles from the delightful small town of Harlech, which is dominated by its majestic 13th century castle. The town is very popular with golfers, who come to enjoy the famous Royal St. David's course, whilst the beautiful 7-mile long sandy beach is wonderful for family fun and long walks. Harlech also offers an excellent variety of amenities including some good quality restaurants. Porthmadog is also close by, as is the Italianate village of Portmeirion, whilst the whole of the Snowdonia National Park, including Snowdon itself, together with the sandy beaches of Cardigan Bay, are all within easy reach.
