Treat yourselves to a peaceful and tranquil break in this luxurious 10 bedroom, C16th country house. The house sits snugly in the mountainous area of Snowdonia, North Wales, just a short walk from the sandy delights of the Llŷn Peninsula and the bustling seaside town of Criccieth.

Gwynedd House offers large group accommodation, either on a self-catering basis or with in-house catering. Local activities range from golf to surfing.

Sleeping up to 21 guests, this south facing, fantastic house is set in 9 acres of garden and woodlands and is perfect for large parties wanting to celebrate a special occasion!

Over 400 years old, this country home was once the home of the family of Lloyd George, the Liberal Prime Minister, in the late 1900s. More recently the property has been used as a lovely country hotel.

Throughout the summer months you can enjoy flower filled gardens, long evening walks and the space to fully unwind or play a game of tennis on the private tennis court.

Spring, summer, autumn or winter, Gwynedd House welcomes you year round!

Children love the freedom to play riotous games of football, rugby and cricket, or simply ride the tree swings, and play with the cat, dog, ponies and chickens. Outdoor amenities include:
- Hard-weather tennis court, with views down to Cardigan Bay.
- 4 x basic tennis rackets available. Please bring your own tennis balls.
- Gymnasium: located in the old coach house to the rear of the property, the gymnasium offers seven different stations.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.

  • Excellent

    Posted by Leslie on 24/10/2017

    An ideal house for our party of Golfers! Gwynedd houses a games room , indoor and outdoor games that are really fun... a lot of privacy and seperate rooms with bathrooms. A real plus and excellent hosting by Maureen, who cooked great breakfast.

  • 5 star stay - perfect for family get-together!

    Posted by Kate W on 11/02/2017

    A group of 20 of us visited Gwynedd House in November 2015 for my mum's 60th birthday. The house was fantastic, and perfect for us. We had arranged for a local supermarket to delivery our shopping, and Maureen, the owner, had kindly put everything away for us before we arrived. The house is located a 10 minute walk away from the local village, where there is a local store. Bigger supermarkets are within a 15 minute drive and the house is within easy driving distance of Criccieth. There are many walks from the grounds. For children, there are plenty of games and dvds, as well as a table tennis table. There is also 2 lovely ponies in the grounds! We had a perfect weekend, and wouldn't hesitate to return

  • Wonderful weekend!

    Posted by Daphne on 23/09/2016

    We had a lovely holiday at Gwynedd House in Criccieth last week-end. The house was lovely, everything was clean and comfortable, as well as being well equipped. We also enjoyed the lovely meal they cooked for us on the Saturday evening. Even the weather was kind to us enabling us to enjoy our beautiful surroundings. My family and I all enjoyed a wonderful, happy and relaxed week-end and it was a memorable celebration of my special birthday. Please convey my thanks to Maureen and her team in case I cannot get through to her.
