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

Pet 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, 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.

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, Longoed and Foel Fawr.

This is our second visit to Bryndu (our last was 2016) and we have not found anything that matches it. It is just a beautiful cottage in a beautiful location, with so many lovely little touches and extras. The garden is fabulous for kids and dogs. This area is wonderful and we went to all of our usual haunts like Criccieth, Porthmadog, Borth-y-Gest, Shell Island. Already planning next years visit!


We have just returned from a wonderful, relaxing stay at ‘Bryn Du’ cottage. Absolutely beautiful property in stunning & peaceful location. Everyone in our group agreed that this experience was just what was needed following extended lockdown period – ideal opportunity to catch-up with friends & recharge. We would highly recommend this property & Dioni – and we can’t wait to book again with yourselves.

Hi. Holiday at bryn du was as brilliant as ever. Comfy, cosy, warm. Peace and quiet. Noticed extra cooking trays and tins which were very useful. Special thanks to Maxine and housekeeping for helping out when extra guests arrived. Couldn’t do enough. Thankyou. Scrummy hamper didn’t last long. New bbq is very posh even had occasion to use it. All in all a great time which was very needed.

We had a really nice holiday, having our grandchildren to stay in relays.
The location and view are excellent and it is only a short car journey to several beaches. The ice creams in Criccieth 5 minutes away are excellent

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay over the holiday period. The house if beautifully appointed, with everything and more you will need to have a very comfortable break. Wonderful views of the bay from the house and garden. The cottage is in a quiet location, but very close to all the amenities, thanks to the owners for ensuring we had a fabulous stay.

Have just spent New Year at Bryn Du. All six of us had a fabulous time! The location of the cottage is gorgeous – wonderful views, peaceful surroundings but within easy reach of restaurants, (Dillons in Criccieth especially)cafes, pubs, and beautiful coves and beaches with great walks ( with or without dogs)! The cottage itself is delightful and has beautiful rooms, and lots of thoughtful little extras throughout- creatively styled, comfortable and inviting. We were sorry to leave !!

Being the first time in Wales and what a lovely holiday property.
Perfect spot, lovely decorated and equipped house and a very good location to explore the Snowdonia national park and the Llyn peninsula.
We loved it.

Recommendation is the Australia Pub in Porthmadog. All the local purple moose beer an tap, excellent food, nice atmosphere.

2nd visit to this gorgeous cottage. If I were to be negative cleaning needs to be done more thorough, some minor DIY, tried to locate resident lounge slug to no avail but could see where he had been. Kitchen drain needs attention. Views as perfect as ever.

Bryan Du cottage is the most luxurious holiday cottage set in stunning countryside. From the moment we stepped through the door we knew we were going to have a splendid long weekend. The cottage has been renovated and designed to the highest specification and there is everything you need for a short or long stay. The gorgeous kitchen is a perfect place to dine and the view is a spectacular place to watch the day unfold.

The lounge is beautiful and the open fire in the let’s you ends the day in a cosy and snug way. The bedrooms are very well equipped with super comfy beds and decor. The little guest toiletries are lovely and add a special touch.

The cottage grounds are magical. The rolling fields beyond the patio afforded us many hours of tranquility and relaxation with a G&T in the garden. The walk to the river is highly recommended and this really is a must if you have children. You can walk back to the cottage and freshen up in the stunning bathrooms with amazing showers and a roll top bath in the en-suite.

The cottage offers a fantastic opportunity to escape the hustle, bustle and noise of everyday life. Bryn Du is the perfect place to re-charge and relax. However, if you want to connect to the world there is WiFi at the cottage and some great wine bars and restaurants down the road in Criccieth. This cottage can’t be recommended enough.
