Gothic Styled Mansion Near The Beach in Llanbedrog | Glyn-Y-Weddw
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.
There is one more double en-suite bedroom on the ground floor. This room is naturally more detached from the rest of the accommodation so may not suit younger children. But older relatives may appreciate the opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle upstairs.
