VENDOR INTERVIEW Set amid the spectacular landscape of the Llyn peninsula is Ty Gwyn, a charming property that is enhanced by the natural beauty of its surroundings and one that enjoys magnificent, panoramic views across Cardigan Bay and far beyond.

"It was actually my father who bought the property from a local farmer back in 1962," says Richard, "and at that time it was just a rather rundown cow shed. He managed to get permission to extend the building and convert it into a dwelling, and then a further extension was added in the 1970s to create the wonderfully spacious house it is today."

"It's a beautiful property that my brothers and I, and our respective families, have all enjoyed as a holiday home," continues Richard. "It's a fabulous place to visit as there's so much to see and do locally, but what really sets it apart from any other is the quite exceptional surroundings. I've been holidaying at the house for the past fifty or so years, but still, whenever I get out of the car I think wow."

This lovely home enjoys an elevated position, with rolling grounds that gently slope away from the house. "We have a lovely paved terrace where on a sunny day you can sit and simply while away the hours," says Richard, "and from there the gardens and grounds drop away and almost appear to merge with the fields beyond. It's a generous size plot that I've often though would quite easily take a helipad."

Favourite room: "The living room at the southern end of the house is really very special," says Richard, "as it has two enormous floor-to-ceiling picture windows that take in the views. We like to sit in there at the end of the day, light a fire and just soak in our wonderful surroundings."

Favourite aspect of the grounds or surrounding area: "The house enjoys a beautiful setting, but it's also surprisingly convenient," says Richard, "as it's almost equidistant between Mynytho and Llanbedrog, which are two very well-served villages, so all of our day-to-day requirements are catered for."

Memorable event (if not another favourite room or unique feature): "I'd describe the house as being double ended," continues Richard, "with a kitchen and a living room at either end and the bedrooms both in the middle of the property and on the first floor. It's a layout that works really well when two families are staying, as we each have our own space, and therefore it would make an ideal holiday let."

What they'll miss most / why they are leaving: "As a family we have all had some wonderful times at Ty Gwyn," says Richard, "and we will be sad to say goodbye to the house. I think I for one will definitely miss gazing at those magnificent views, which even to this day take my breath away."
