  • "We very much enjoyed our stay at Gwynle, an absolutely charming house (despite the mixed weather)."

    The house was amazing with all of it's lovely features, a welcome change from the very modern - the kitchen was also well thought out and the conservatory and games room, an added bonus which was very welcome for our three generation family holiday. So much attention to those details, made the house feel like home from home.

  • "Perfect house for a larger group."

    More than enough space for 8 adults and 2 children. Owners communication was top tier. The house was decorated for Christmas for our arrival. Very clean throughout. Pub very close, beaches 5 minute drive. Would highly recommend. Thank you

    So pleased to hear you all had a wonderful time at Gwynle. Many thanks Tom for your lovely comments. We look forward to welcoming you back one day. Property Owner

  • "Excellent property with all the facilities for a great family holiday."

    Plenty of room for our daughters families and ourselves to enjoy ourselves, whether in garden, conservatory, games room or the house in general. Would highly recommend.

  • "This is a fantastic holiday house."

    So much attention to detail and thought from the owner. We loved the games room and the outside area. The kitchen is so well equipped and we used the picnic basket and flask for a picnic on the beach. The bed in the loft was very squeaky but my husband adjusted the bolts and sorted it out. Blinds in the loft room would be good as it was too light. We would have liked access to a hoover as with 2 dogs we needed to clean through the week! All in all a perfect stay in a fabulous family home from home, thank you!

    Beautiful, comfortable house in a great location. Has everything you need to have a relaxing holiday. Enjoyed sitting in the conservatory looking out over the garden making use of all the Prosecco glasses! Kids spent lots of time in the games room too

  • "We had a fabulous family holiday at Gwynle in August."

    The house is lovely, spacious, well equipped, and very much enjoyed by our family group (ranging from one year old to seventy-one years old!) It was also very conveniently located for us to explore the local beaches during the week of lovely weather that we enjoyed. Lesley was very helpful and lovely to liaise with. We would definitely recommend the property and hope to return.

  • "This was the best property we have ever stayed in."

    The freshness of the decor and quality of furnishings very good. As three generations of one family, we appreciated the seperate spaces in the house. We all felt very relaxed at the end of our stay. No arguments. Very well located for lots of beaches - the one at Abererch nearby, great for swimming and allowed dogs - we hope to return again and visit some of the other attractions in the area but as the weather was so good, the beaches won !!!

    Thank you so much for your kind words. We were so pleased to hear you all enjoyed being at Gwynle. We are also a three generation family when we visit and it does work. Hope you had some time to enjoy the new games table. We would love to visit you again, and if so we can offer a discount if you mention to Menai you are returning guests. Property Owner

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, sitting area with a window overlooking the garden.

Up here there is also a second bathroom with walk-in shower.

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.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
