Full description

Tenure: Freehold


Glyn Awel is a superbly restored detached residence with extensive accommodation situated in a fabulous rural setting in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. It boasts a wealth of traditional features including original slate floors, beamed ceilings, fireside cupboards, exposed stone walls with wide window sills and inglenook fireplaces. Situated directly opposite the confluence of the Glaslyn and Cwm Llan rivers and the National Trust property at Hafod Y Llan, Glyn Awel enjoys breath-taking views over the valley floor to the mountains Y Lliwedd, Yr Aran and the southern ridge of Snowdon.

This comfortable home enjoys plentiful accommodation and is eminently a practical family dwelling with 5 double bedrooms and a wonderful farmhouse-style kitchen which is the truly the heart of the home. The house is fully double-glazed with quality uPVC units including authentic sash windows at the front, and heating is provided by two multi-fuel stoves as well as Economy 7 storage heating. With plentiful private parking, an attached garage and delightful landscaped gardens with outstanding views, Glyn Awel is located in a remarkable setting and really does tick the boxes!  

LOCATION Glyn Awel nestles within the small, friendly hamlet of Nant Gwynant, with the village of Beddgelert ideally placed just 3 miles to the south (with amenities including pubs, restaurants, shops and a primary school). The larger settlements of Betws-y-Coed, Porthmadog and Caernarfon are all within about half an hour's drive.

Nant Gwynant is undoubtedly a beautiful location which really fires the imagination, the nearby lakes of Gwynant and Dinas proving irresistible for artists and photographers alike. The closest village of Beddgelert is always bustling with visitors, many of whom take a break from travelling on the Welsh Highland Railway between Caernarfon and Porthmadog. North Wales offers countless tourist attractions and facilities: two hugely entertaining zip wire rides, an underground trampoline park, a surf park, numerous events (cycling, running etc.), mountain bike courses, excellent climbing facilities not to mention the castles and historic monuments. Snowdon itself attracts some 500,000 walkers a year and film crews often frequent the area to take advantage of the exceptional landscape.

Although Glyn Awel would make an ideal family home, the property is currently operated as a highly successful holiday let (with 24 5 star reviews on Tripadvisor at the time of writing). With the potential for continued use in this capacity, or alternatively as a second home, the house contents are also available for purchase separately. Glyn Awel could otherwise be divided to create separate residential cottages and there is also scope for an additional new build dwelling on land to the side of Glyn Awel, subject of course to planning consents and approvals.
