charming Llanystumdwy (near Criccieth), in north-west Wales between the mountains and the beach
Between the mountains and the sea in rural north-west Wales, this fine country house for large groups is perfect for a coastal getaway for all the family in Snowdonia.
Situated in rural north Wales between mountains, sea, and the river Dwyfor - Tŷ Newydd is a historic grade II* listed house built in the fifteenth century. It was the last home of former Prime Minister David Lloyd George, who commissioned famous Portmeirion architect Clough Williams-Ellis to renovate the house and grounds with his notable magic touch.
Currently serving as Wales’ national writing centre, the house has been modernised with a mobility lift, central heating and Wi-Fi throughout. It’s perfect for a large family, with three spacious and homely reception rooms, lots of quirky stairs and halls, a fully-equipped kitchen, and a very large garden full of hidden spaces. It has plenty of flexible bedroom options to accommodate a range of different sized groups.
New! For groups bigger than 17 there are now 2 x extra double rooms (en suite) are available in the Old stables only 100 yards from the main house - therefore the property will now sleep 21 guests.
