Luxurious Three Bedroom Farmhouse with Sea Views in Llanystumdwy | Bryn-Du

Dog FriendlyNear PubReal Fire

This traditional stone built farmhouse has been renovated to a very high standard. It offers guests that perfect mix of style and luxury set in a beautiful rural location. If that’s not enough, I guarantee the sea view will lift your soul. (Although I can’t guarantee the weather, this is Wales after all.)

You get the impression that this is a classy sort of place from the moment you turn that heavy brass knob and open the large oak door. Quarry tiles lead you into a lovely contemporary kitchen. An attractive range cooker to your left, a lovely Belfast sink to your right all set within pastel coloured units under an expensive granite worktop. But best of all perhaps is the breakfast table sitting as it does in front of large French doors giving you the opportunity to soak in that sea view over your morning coffee.

A rustic ledge and brace door leads into the large lounge. The impressive inglenook with a real fire is flanked by two luxurious leather sofas, decorated in turn with some tasteful cushions and welsh woollen throws. The dining room next door also has it’s own fire. A cute little log burner this time. Again, everything from the antique light fittings to the choice of curtain fabric right down to the colour of the paint on the walls is perfect in every way.

A carpeted staircase separates these two rooms (be careful on these stairs as they are steep) and the attention to detail continues upstairs. The first room to your left has a delightful modern brass double bed. The bedroom furniture is in the French distressed style. This is complimented by some lovely bedside lamps and a reproduction cast iron radiators. The deep-set casement window looks out through the leaves of a blossom tree over the fields in front of the house.

Similarly, it’s difficult to look past the balcony window in the spacious master bedroom. Grazing cows in a field of lush grass in the foreground. In the distance, the slate covered roof of the village church in a sea of green trees. The valley leading your eye towards the sea and the outstretched arm of the Llyn Peninsula beyond. Yes the king sized brass bed is lovely and the pictures are tastefully chosen etc. But who cares, have you seen that view!

Nice big en-suite to this room with a freestanding roll top bath and separate large shower. The main bathroom off the landing has an even bigger walk in shower. The double basin washstand allowing adoring couples to brush their teeth in unison.

The third bedroom has twin beds set toe to toe. The two windows next to each bed give the room a charming symmetry. The linen and soft furnishings are as elegant and refined as the rest of the house.

Floor Plans




The birth place of former British Prime Minister, Lloyd George, Llanystumdwy is a great example of a Welsh village which has succeeded in retaining it’s character and sense of identity. Helped partly by its status as an architectural conservation area and also community strongholds like the village pub and chapel.

Bryn-Du is located in a quiet corner on the outskirts of the village but there are many attractions within easy reach. The Lloyd George Museum is a must and other local attractions include fishing lakes, paint balling park and riding stables. A short journey in the car will take you to the seaside villages of Criccieth and Abersoch as well as the harbour town and sailing centre of Pwllheli. Other popular activities available nearby include golf, mountain biking, white water rafting, sailing and abundant heritage and historical sites.

Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) is of course an obvious draw for many guests although I would encourage keen walkers to explore the less trodden paths along the Dwyfor River, Lon Goed and Foel Fawr.

We had such a lovely time celebrating our 20th anniversary in this beautiful cottage, with our family. It’s ideally located for exploring the Llyn Peninsula and so close to a pebble beach. It’s such a peaceful cottage, surrounded by rolling fields and ideal for star gazing. The hosts were so kind to leave us a welcome hamper, the wine was lovely (thank you) and although we initially had problems with the heating, it was soon sorted and we were toasty warm. We really look forward to visiting again soon.

Had a lovely week at Bryn-Du. The house is beautiful, perfect location. A much needed break with special people, making special memories. Would definitely recommend. We are slowly working our way through the Dioni collection, we are yet to be disappointed!

Spent a wonderful few days in this gorgeous cottage. We will certainly be back. Really a home from home and a great location for a secluded vacation but only 10 mins from the beech.

Elizabeth Davies

Lovely farm house in a great location. We really enjoyed our stay.

Kate Helme

This is our 4th stay at Bryn-Du. Always such a peaceful and beautiful setting. The cottage has everything we need, the garden and view fabulous and we love the location with so many beautiful beaches and lovely towns to visit. Thank you.

We had a super holiday at Bryn Du, despite the weather. The property has so much character and was certainly a novelty for my daughter and grandsons. It is decorated to a high standard and was clean. We appreciated the welcome basket as we arrived in the pouring rain on a Saturday evening, not knowing where the nearest supermarket was located. The kitchen had all necessary items including dish cloths and cleaning materials.

There were also loads of brochures for recommended day trips.

All in all, we had a lovely stay and would recommend. Thank you.

Just returned from a 7 night stay in this wonderful cosy house. Well equipped with everything you could need although a tumble dryer would be great as the weather we requested didn’t show up!
The welcome hamper was brilliant.
The views were amazing and in such a peaceful area – I don’t think the website photos do it justice.
We stayed with our 8 month old puppy who loved the garden area and enjoyed sitting and watching the cows in the field, we felt the outside area was pretty secure for the dog although we always stayed close by, but there could be the potential for a larger dog to jump the wall.
Would happily return and would definitely recommend this property.

Our third visit to beautiful Wales staying at Bryn Du which says it all really. Cottage is so so brill you just want to keep going back. Maxine, owner, plus housekeeping keep it spotlessly clean, update fixtures as and when, like lovely new sun loungers. One of the very best spots to really relax is taking one of the loungers into the orchard. Completely surrounded by hedge and full of apple trees, it is a very intimate, extremely peaceful place. Would recommend Bryn Du 100%

We stayed in Bryn-Du for 5 nights and never tired of the fantastic view over woods fields and sea . What an amazing cottage with everything we needed beautiful inside and out. Thanks so much we will be back.

Sandra and Kevin

We have just stayed at this cottage for a week and oh, what a treat it has been. From the wonderfully designed interior decorations to the exterior extensive gardens. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you need and the decor is just awesome. The main bedroom is very large and has a Juliette balcony and the en suite is gorgeous.. The views over the bay from this room are outstanding. The other two bedrooms are also great as is the main bathroom. Down stairs the rooms are spacious, homely and inviting and as mentioned above are fabulously decorated. The kitchen is large and has everything one could ask for. Outside the gardens are very large with plenty of room for children and a dog to run around. We will certainly book this cottage again sooner rather than later. It is well worth renting.
