The Joys Of Life Country Park.

Acquired in 2000, The Joys of Life Country Park accommodation and approximately 10 acres of grounds have been lovingly developed into a stunning country park.  As well as a modern house, the park contains two cottages for self- catering plus luxury bed and breakfast accommodation and a caravan club certified location.  Guests are offered free usage of the park’s amenities that include formal gardens and hideaways, woodland walks and a stunning lake. The park has been and continues to be a very popular location for many people from around the world.


An impressive main house primarily provides the owner’s accommodation and is constructed in the style of an Alpine Villa.  It is complimented by the peaks of the nearby Carneddau mountain range. This house enjoys its own spacious and private garden. Within the main house the property benefits from a modern fitted solid timber kitchen with complimentary granite worktops and integrated fridge, dishwasher and range-style cooker.  A pleasant conservatory off the main entrance  and a spacious dining hallway lead to two en-suite guest bedrooms.  These are beautifully furnished and provide a real taste of luxury and an enjoyable stay for all. Two additional double bedrooms on the first floor are sited off the spacious landing and are accompanied by a family-sized toilet and shower room.

Bryn Llys (Hill of the Lillies)

A large spacious cottage recently rebuilt in former outbuildings dating back to the mid-18th century. Of five guest bedrooms, three are twin-bedded and two are family rooms that have a double bed on the ground floor and twin beds on an attractive mezzanine floor - which is popular with families. All of the bedrooms have en-suite showers and toilets. A dining room with a beamed ceiling seats 18 and benefits from a spacious kitchen with a full range of appliances.  A spacious, beamed guest lounge, that seats 15, is sited on the first floor along with a games/conference room. The facilities provide guests the space and freedom required for a perfect group or family holiday. The cottage also enjoys its own gated and walled garden area with decoratively paved walkway.

Hafan (Haven)

An adjacent self-contained cottage has been expertly configured to favour wheel chair users but is equally suitable for the able bodied. A ramp gives access to a patio area that leads to a spacious lounge with arrow-slit windows and exposed stone work revealing the history of this charming building.  It provides well-appointed accommodation with contemporary fixtures and fittings, making it the perfect place to unwind.  A kitchen/diner leads to a master double bedroom with en-suite wet room and exposed features such as the original shaft and wheels used to drive the laundry that occupied the building.  On the first floor a galleried landing with seating provides access to a double bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet.

Mobile Home

A luxury mobile home,  sited within the curtilage,  provides well appointed accommodation comprising  a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a single bedroom with a separate toilet. The mobile home has a fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable lounge.  It is supplied with mains water and electricity and LPG gas. An attractive enclosed terrace area provides privacy but is a good viewing platform, with easy access from the main car park.

Ride on Railway

A 5’’gauge ride-on railway lay-out, with fully active features, covers nearly half a mile of woodland and wildlife areas that are maintained regularly by volunteers. It incorporates an engine shed, a turntable, bridges, a tunnel, a fully working model train station and signal boxes which have been designed as scale models of authentic railway signal boxes.

Caravan site

A secluded clearing of grass and hard standing areas forms a Caravan Club certified location for 5 touring caravans or motorhomes. An on-site toilet, electrical hook ups and waste disposal facilities are incorporated.

The Grounds

As well as the above features, the grounds contain a formal garden with a pond, a rose garden, a small orchard and a herb garden.  A small stream runs through the property and feeds a 1 acre lake.  A peaceful walkway around the lake has a variant of a woodland walk that accesses a bird-hide.  Planning permission could be sought for a large barn in the grounds to be developed into more accommodation.   A meadow also presents possibilities.
