Property
Glandwr Hall is a stunning 17th Century country
house occupying a prominent coastal position on
the Mawddach Estuary, said to be one of the finest
estuaries in Europe, with superb views over to the
Cadair Idris mountain range in Snowdonia. The
Hall has been in the ownership of same family for
the past 22 years and has served as a much loved
second home. Under the present ownership, the
house has been extensively restored and
improved, including modern marble bathrooms
with C.P.Hart fittings. The property stands in
glorious gardens and grounds enjoying a quay,
indoor heated swimming pool, hot tub, and tennis
court. The hall combines delightfully presented and
comfortable living space, ideal for every-day living
and larger scale entertaining, with an array of
charming period features.

Approached through an arched front door with
stained glass panels, the entrance porch leads into
a central reception hall, with a locally sourced
Glandwr oak panelled floor, off which leads a
study, three principle reception rooms and a
graceful staircase. The drawing room, dining room
and sitting room all have attractive fireplaces and
deep bay windows framing the south facing views
across the estuary. The elegant drawing room is
notable with its French doors onto the large raised
sun terrace, ideal for outdoor dining. The kitchen
is accessed from both the reception hall and the
dining room, and is fitted with an extensive range
of oak units, along with a five-oven electric AGA
with a matching gas hob. From the kitchen leads a
breakfast room with a utility room beyond. A boiler
room, boot room, tool room and cloakroom
complete the ground floor accommodation. There
is a sizeable cellar, with three rooms and a wine
storage area.

Seven bedrooms are laid out over the first and
second floors with most of the bedrooms enjoying
far reaching views. The principle bedroom benefits
from a spacious en-suite bathroom with roll top
bath, walk in marble shower, ‘his and hers’ sinks,
feature fireplace and marble tiles with underfloor
heating. The remaining bedrooms are served by
three bathrooms, with tiled floors, two of which
also have underfloor heating.

Outbuildings
A large heated indoor swimming pool, with salt
water system and a powered swimming jet, sits to
one side of the house and has a shower room, two
cloakrooms and changing facilities. Attached is a
double garage. A selfcontained summerhouse is
situated away from the main house, offering a
secluded retreat nestled amongst the established
grounds. This building provides excellent
secondary accommodation and could serve as a
lucrative holiday let (subject to permissions).

Location
Glandwr Hall is situated within the Snowdonia
National Park, on the Mawddach Estuary, with
spectacular views over the ever-changing tidal
scenery, to the dramatic mountain backdrop and
out to Cardigan Bay.

The popular seaside and yachting resort of
Barmouth is nearby and benefits from a range of
shops, restaurants, pubs and attractions. The
pretty town of Dolgellau, former County Town and
now administrative centre of the district, lies about
seven miles to the east and has a further range of
shops, restaurants, pubs and attractions. The
many sporting and recreational facilities which the
area has to offer include sailing, walking, mountain
biking, bird watching and golf. The area is
renowned as a walker’s paradise and the nearby
Coed y Brenin is the UK’s first and largest
dedicated mountain bike trail centre. Barmouth
and the coastline north also have some of the best
sandy beaches in the British Isles and there are
two famous golf clubs, Royal St. Davids at Harlech,
and Aberdovey, within easy access.

A further range of amenities can be found in
Porthmadog and Machynlleth, and there are main
line trains from Barmouth to Shrewsbury,
Birmingham and London.

Garden and grounds
The house is surrounded by beautiful gardens
designed to provide year round colour with mature
shrubs, borders, flowering plants and walkways.
The terrace on the estuary side of the house is
ideally positioned to enjoy the spectacular
southerly views over the estuary to the mountains
behind. A discreetly located tennis court sits uphill
from the house.

Glandwr Hall has a quay in its grounds with access
to the estuary, with a boathouse and an ancient
lime kiln providing additional storage.
