The property

This wonderfully appointed, semi-detached period residence sits within generous gardens in the village of Chwilog, on the scenic Llyn Peninsula.

Gwynle is believed to date back to the late 1800’s when it was once a Captain’s residence; now it has been lovingly restored while maintaining many period features to keep in touch with character and age.

Set over three floors; on the ground-floor you will enter into a small hallway where you can leave your boots and jackets behind before finding the sitting room, complete with two sumptuous sofas and a woodburning stove, plus a TV for enjoying cosy movie nights.

Give the chef of the group some space as they get acquainted in the open-plan bespoke kitchen/diner, home to a wealth of integrated appliances and a large centre island, this is a wonderful space to show off your culinary skills.

Continue through to the conservatory where you can settle down and overlook the garden or lose yourself in a good read.

As your eyes grow heavy, move upstairs to catch some rest in the bedrooms; the first-floor plays host to two refreshing doubles, one with distant sea views and the other overlooking the garden, along with a pretty twin which is perfect for children, and served by a beautiful bathroom with freestanding bath and a large walk-in shower.

Continue to the second-floor to find the fourth bedroom, offering another double bed with a window overlooking the garden.

The rear garden is very generous in size with patio seating area and summer house, surrounded by an abundance of mature plants, trees and shrubs, so you can enjoy alfresco dining in an idyllic setting, while to the front there is a small lawned area and off-road parking for four cars in a shared driveway.

The village of Chwilog is home to a welcoming pub, Y Madrynn, which offers tasty local ales and home-cooked meals, ideal for those evenings when you don’t feel like cooking.

For a greater choice of amenities, the town of Criccieth is four miles away, offering an impressive 13th-century castle which provides stunning views of Tremadog Bay and the Snowdonia Mountains.

Alternatively, head a little further afield to Porthmadog, home to a striking marina and is the terminus for the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Steam Railway, a scenic train journey that cuts through the glorious landscapes of Snowdonia.

With plenty to enjoy in this exciting part of Wales, consider Gwynle for a memorable getaway, whatever time of year.
