Traditional Seaside Holiday Cottage in Llandanwg | Glynmor

Pet FriendlyNear BeachReal Fire

This beautiful semi detached home is a wonderful example of that traditional seaside holiday cottage. Situated in Llandanwg, near Harlech in North Wales, the house is walking distance to one of the nicest sandy beaches in the U.K.

The most obvious way into the house once you’ve parked up is through the back door. The kitchen is the first room. Beautiful pastel colours and a luxurious granite worktop set the tone in here. An electric oven and induction hob as well as a tall fridge freezer is all included. The essential washing machine is in the entrance hall come utility room that we passed through. A charming shabby chic breakfast table and chairs sits at the far end of the room. Great for that morning coffee before the kids get up.

From here we walk through into the dining room. A bigger table here naturally. But again the subtle tones continue creating a lovely feeling of luxury beach house. A large casement window lets in plenty of light and there’s plenty of matching crockery in the kitchen.

The lounge is next. When you tire of looking at that sea view the log fire is the natural focal point in this room. Soft grey sofas hug three walls and a modern flat screen TV sits unobtrusively on the fourth.

There are two double rooms and one twin room on the first floor and one family room in the surprisingly spacious attic conversion. The double room towards the front of the house has the added luxury of looking out over Llandanwg beach and the coastline as it curves around towards Shell Island. All the bedrooms are beautifully decorated just like the rest of the house with elegant bedside lamps, tasteful bedroom furniture and crisp white linen.

There are two bathrooms on the first floor. One bathroom has a bath as well as a separate shower cubicle, wc and washbasin. The second bathroom has another shower cubicle, wc and washbasin. There’s also a really convenient outside loo by the back door with plenty of space for lilos, snorkels, flippers etc.

Location is everything of course. We’re spoilt for choice for beaches in this part of North Wales. But Llandanwg beach is one of my favourites I think. It has the all important sandy stretch for sunbathing and sandcastle building but the boulders and rock pools at the far end of the beach provide that little bit of extra interest that you don’t get on some of the other beaches. There’s also a really nice cafe down by the beach serving ice cream, tea, coffee, light lunches etc.

The famous castle town of Harlech is just a couple of miles up the coast road from the house. There are some really nice cafes and restaurants here and a small collection of shops. Barmouth, a traditional Victorian seaside town, is a 15 minute drive to the south has more pubs and restaurants and a slightly larger collection of shops.

A combination of beach walks and mountain walks accessible from your back door make this a great holiday base in both winter and summer. And a wealth of adventure activities in the area ensures that even the teenagers in your group will be happily entertained.

Brilliant located home with a beautiful beach on the doorstep (albeit down the zig zag path!) and also close to Barmouth.
Had a great week at this house.
Comfy and with all the requirements of a holiday home.
Some work needed in the top bedrooms that our children used but otherwise very comfy and cosy house.
Would recommend and revisit.

Glynmor is a lovely home with a wonderful view from the living room and front bedroom. With two fantastic beaches a short walk away we thought this was an excellent location, especially for those with families and those needing dog friendly but fantastic space. Really enjoyed our weekend and would book again. Owner available for any questions or issues and very responsible. We also loved the Welsh treats in the welcome basket, a nice touch!

We all had a great time.The house is spacious and well-appointed. Excellent facilities for large families and a superb accommodation. Fabulous views of Harlech beach from the top of the road. Amazing sunsets.

A lovely week staying at Glynmor for the second time. The cottage is comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated with plenty of room for all of us. We love the area and the views down to Llandanwg and the estuary are simply stunning. We hope to be back next year!


Five of us really enjoyed our week in Glan-y-Mor in June 2021. The house had been thoroughly cleaned and there was a nice welcome pack including a bottle of wine. We had wondered if the layout of this semi-detached property would be awkward but the modernisation has been well done and the property has a cosy and welcoming feel. The location is the main plus, however, with views over an ever changing coastal scene. Walks can be made locally without starting off in a car, the beach is a 10 minute walk away and should be visited for sunset every night. Harlech offers an excellent homemade ice cream parlour and fish and chip shop, and of course the castle, and the setting is very quiet, away from the main road and the core of Llandanwg. This was the fifth rental we have made from Dioni and while all have been excellent the location of this one and the views from the lounge, one bedroom and the garden benches will make it stand out in particular in our memories.

Lovely cottage with wonderful views and close access to Llandanwg and Harlech beaches. Well equipped and spacious for our extended family. As in a previous comment, more mirrors would be useful and hand towels (as none were provided). A great holiday enjoyed by all.

We’ve just returned from our fourth stay at Glan y mor. We arrived on the 27th Dec to find the house decorated for Christmas. We used the lovely dining room for a belated Christmas dinner. We love this house and the area, it is ideal for leisurely walks to the beaches with our dogs. We will miss sitting in the front room gazing at the ever changing views from the window.

Really enjoyed the lovely house and stunning area. Great size for a family. Hamper items were well chosen and tasty. I did ask if logs were supplied and was told there would be enough for a fire so was disappointed to find 1 log! Our small dog did escape under the gate one morning so I had to run up the lane in my pyjamas!
