Gothic Styled Mansion Near The Beach in Llanbedrog | Plas-Glyn-Y-Weddw

Dog FriendlyNear BeachNear Pub

This Gothic styled mansion near the beach in Llanbedrog was built in 1857 and was originally part of the famous Madryn estate. Now run as an art gallery by a charitable trust the rear wing of this impressive building has been lovingly converted into self-catering accommodation. Also on-site is an award winning cafe you must try! Don’t worry, the wing is quite private, you wont be one of the exhibits on show!

A private entrance opens up onto a large entrance hall with a wide staircase leading up to the accommodation. A stair lift is available for anyone with mobility difficulties. As we walk along the 1st floor corridor the first door on our right leads into the dining room. Towering sash widows and high vaulted ceilings ensure plenty of light and air. A spiral staircase leads up to a small balcony area with two extra single beds if required.

From here we can walk left into the kitchen. All the usual appliances including a washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. If we return back through the dining we can walk straight through into the lounge. The lounge is a bit smaller than the dining room but plenty of seating and that all-important TV.

The best thing about staying in the wing of an art gallery of course is the artwork that that is used to adorn the walls of the accommodation. A lovely collection of mostly local artists provides that extra touch of charm and fascination.

There are four bedrooms on this first floor. Two double rooms with en-suite shower rooms, and two twin rooms. One of the twin rooms has a shower cubicle and washbasin but no wc. Finally we have a family bathroom with a bath plus separate shower cubicle, wc and washbasin.

Floor Plans




The grounds to the mansion are as impressive as the building itself. Although you will have to share these with gallery visitors up until 5pm when the gallery closes. Green lawns and picnic benches look out onto Cardigan bay and the mountains of Snowdonia. As short walk will lead you down to the golden sands of Llanbedrog beach famous for it’s colourful beach houses. Guests are also encouraged to explore the recently created footpaths that wind their way through the woodland next to the mansion. The main trail through the property forms part of the All Wales Coastal Pathway.

The ever popular and fashionable town of Abersoch is a short 5 minute drive away and has a great selection of pubs, restaurants and trendy shops. The larger harbour town of Pwllheli is 10 minutes in the other direction. The newly built marina has over 400 pontoon births including visitor births and hosts a number of national and international sailing events.

Llanbedrog is arguably one of the nicest beaches in North Wales but a short drive in the car will take you to lots of other hidden coves and small seaside villages. To the east, the mountains of Snowdonia are a natural home to an ever-growing number of adventure activity providers.

10 of us had a wonderful week’s stay. Lots of space to cook and entertain and well stocked kitchen. Check in was seamless thank you Jess.
The cafe next door is very good and we loved the beach bar which is only a five minute walk away. The beach is great for kids and dogs.
Good value for money and highly recommended.


We had a wonderful stay with family over Christmas. A delicious Christmas cake and bottle of wine were a lovely surprise on arrival. Iwan was very friendly and helpful, responding quickly to any queries. The location was perfect – so close to the beach, walks directly from the door, shop and pub near by and we managed to visit the beautiful art gallery before it closed for the season. Again staff in the gallery were really friendly and welcoming. The accommodation itself was great – lots of bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen which served us perfectly when cooking Christmas dinner for our group. Our only suggestions for the future would be to have some guides, maps and games in the property and a little more information in advance of the stay about what was / was not provided. E.g. there were cleaning products in the kitchen but no soap in the bathrooms. Overall a really enjoyable break in a stunning location. Thank you!

It was absolutely brilliant. Location was perfect  & the management of the house was superb. Not interfering but on hand. The only downside is the holiday blues when you leave.

This is our third visit to Plas Glyn Y Weddw and it just keeps on getting better. We absolutely love this place ….for young and for old. We will be back again!

Everything was fine and we had a glorious time. The only reservation was that the cups were too large and would not wash in the dishwasher! This is a minor but real point.

Had a really lovely family holiday in this unique property. Spotlessly clean and all the equipment needed for a self catering holiday. The stair lift was very useful for the older members of our party. Llanbedrog is ideal for touring around the lovely area and visiting the many costal towns. We took a train journey from Pwllheli to Barmouth, lovely scenery and great value for money, highly recommended day out. The beach at Llanbedrog is lovely and has a super beach bar. Great value for money holiday, enjoyed by all. Thank you.

Just arrived home after a fantastic stay at Plas Glyn-y-Weddw. Weather was mixed but with such spacious and cosy space staying inside was also a joy.
The staff at the art gallery are friendly and made a real effort to make you feel welcome, helping with any queries regarding the accommodation promptly.

The cake in the cafe particularly is a real treat, we ordered it to take back to eat in the comfort of the accommodation on a windy rainy day!!!

Perfect location, views are showstopping especially on the woodland walk on a clear day!

Also something we all noted was how well built the property is, the walls are very thick meaning when visiting with grandparents the children don’t disturb them too early in the morning!

Perfect location for a family celebration. Plenty of space with

amazing artwork for everyone to enjoy.

The gallery staff were very friendly and helpful and it felt very

special to be the first visitors on the reopening of the gallery.

Just had a great stay spread over a very wet (Storm Dennis) school half term holidays with 13 members of my family. The first time we have all been away together for many years. The disabled access stair lift was perfect for my 83 year old mother and the fact that we could all be on the same floor was a real bonus. Dioni also helped us source a rise and recline chair for my mum and the staff at the gallery organised the logistics of delivery and collection of the chair which was perfect. The settings, surroundings and the gallery were all perfect and we would not hesitate to recommend staying here if you have a large party. Mum enjoyed it so much she thinks we should go back in the summer when the weather should be better!

A really excellent apartment for a large family. Wonderful position and views from the front, within easy walking distance of a tremendous well-stocked local shop (SPAR) and other conveniences. Wonderful beach very nearby and lots more within short driving distances on the N and S coasts of Llyn.

Not many views or large windows so would have liked much stronger artificial lights as it became very gloomy indeed in the evening/night.
