Our Inspector's view

Set under the imposing Cadair Idris and overlooking the Mawddach estuary, Penmaenuchaf is a comfortable retreat enjoying peace, fantastic views and dark skies. The house has long been welcoming guests but now has had a fresh lease of life under new owners who are working to restore and rejuvenate, keeping the sense of the dramatic ancient landscape of Eryri National Park. Bedrooms all have their own unique character, offering modern comfort whilst public spaces are warm and traditional, easy to find a quiet corner. A small and enthusiastic team are on hand to deliver excellent service at all times.

About the area

Discover Gwynedd

The county of Gwynedd is home to most of the Snowdonia National Park – including the wettest spot in Britain, an arête running up to Snowdon’s summit that receives an average annual rainfall of 4,473mm. With its mighty peaks, rivers and strong Welsh heritage (it has the highest proportion of Welsh-speakers in all of Wales), it’s always been an extremely popular place to visit and live. The busiest part is around Snowdon; around 750,000 people climb, walk or ride the train to the summit each year.

Also in Gwynedd is the Llyn Peninsula, a remote part of Wales sticking 30 miles out into the Irish Sea. At the base of the peninsula is Porthmadog, a small town linked to Snowdonia by two steam railways – the Welsh Highland Railway and the Ffestiniog Railway. Other popular places are Criccieth, with a castle on its headland overlooking the beach, Pwllheli, and Abersoch and the St Tudwal Islands. Elsewhere, the peninsula is all about wildlife, tranquillity, and ancient sacred sites. Tre’r Ceiri hill fort is an Iron Age settlement set beside the coastal mountain of Yr Eifl, while Bardsey Island, at the tip of the peninsula, was the site of a fifth-century Celtic monastery.
