Large Georgian Country Manor House With Sea Views | Plas-Bryn-Hir
This large Georgian country manor house with sea views is a stunner. Perfect for extra-special get-togethers, anniversaries, and celebrations, it sleeps up to 13 guests. Well-behaved pets are also welcome.
Warm, welcoming, and oh-so-very luxurious, Plas Bryn Hir is a real staycation bolthole for a holiday that you will remember forever. The house name means Long Hill Manor, and its slightly elevated perch less than half a mile from the beach means it comes with dreamy sea views. It’s a fantastic little spot. The house is just a short walk from the beautiful seaside town of Criccieth with its medieval castle, browsable boutiques, and big sandy beaches. There are some excellent places to eat out nearby, and plenty of activities and watersports to enjoy too. Set over three floors, Plas Bryn Hir is a handsome Grade II-listed manor house, dating largely from the 18th century. Look out for some fabulous original features, including a beautiful glazed verandah, wood paneling and coving, and elegant staircases which were designed to accommodate the long skirts of the original ladies of the house.
With great age comes great proportions. You can expect beautifully presented bright living spaces with plenty of room for everyone in your holiday gang to come together or find some quiet time apart.
To give you some idea of the very ample living space, the natural ‘heart’ of the house - the stunning family room beyond the kitchen - was originally used as a ballroom. With its wide bay windows, comfortable plush sofas, and huge wood burning stove it is a great place for sociable get-togethers. There’s also a large dining table - and a piano! - in this lovely spacious room.
The luxury kitchen is well equipped, designed with heritage green units and a Rangemaster cooker, perfect for cooking your holiday meals. The sitting room has been decorated and furnished to reflect the Georgian period with an attractive muted palette, deep original alcoves and shutters on the windows. Beyond the sitting room, you’ll find the 'library', and there’s also a formal dining room on the ground floor. Plas Bryn Hir offers six stylish bedrooms spread over the first and second floors, most with original fireplaces.
All of the first floor bedrooms have their own bathrooms; two double rooms with en-suites, and a twin room with a separate bathroom. The second floor bedrooms - two twin rooms and a family room - share a shower room. There is a further shower room on the ground floor. This large Georgian country manor house with sea views is surrounded by large, sublime grounds, and there’s plenty of room for children to run around and explore. Relax on the veranda at the front of the house to enjoy views of the lawns and woodlands. There are beautiful views of the beach and bay looking across to Harlech and the Rhinogydd mountains beyond.
