The Llanfendigaid Estate has been owned by the Nanney-Wynn family for over eight centuries. The Llanfendigaid Estate is made up of 16 acres of grounds, set within the Snowdonia National Park on one of the most attractive stretches of the Welsh coastline. Llanfendigaid (which translates as "Parish of the Blessed") occupies a superb position half a mile from the sea in the southern end of the Snowdonia National Park near the famous mountain Cader Idris. Llanfendigaid and its cottages have been awarded a 4 or 5 star grading by Visit Wales. A chargeable internet access is available over a satellite broadband link if required. This magnificent and very comfortable family home is set within an acre of lovely wooded gardens. It is surrounded by a further three acres of shared (with its cottages) grounds and scenic farmland with magnificent view of beautiful scenery - there is access to a sand and shingle beach nearby and shared used (with Dove Cottage, Stable Cottage, The Cow Shed and the CL) of a 28' x 14' indoor heated swimming pool.
This superb country house was originally built in the 13th century and was renovated to its present design in 1746 and has been listed by CADW as a Grade II* which is only given to buildings of exceptional historic and architectural interest.

Inside, the interior has been recently improved yet retains its character with panelled walls, antiques and fine family portraits. The house and family’s fascinating history is documented for visitors to read. There are excellent opportunities nearby for walking, bird watching, climbing and cycling. Children enjoy meeting the ponies. The seaside town of Tywyn is just 5 miles away and has a sand and shingle beach and is the terminal of the Talyllyn Railway, one of the famous "Little Trains of Wales". Also well worth a visit is Aberdyfi 7 miles away with its first rate golf course and 5 miles of golden sand and dunes with excellent sailing. We also run Spa Treatments and Countryside courses on Foraging, Tinkering and Basket Weaving on demand. Spa treatments and catering can also be arranged (at extra cost) with prior notice.
