The Property
Once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a truly unique property and has been lovingly restored by the present owners to 4* Welsh Tourist Board Accommodation and 5* Health and hygiene.

Pen Y Coed Hall grandly perches on the banks of Dolgellau, under the watchful eye of the world famous Welsh Mountains. A unique property, indeed a one-of-a-kind this spectacular house has become a highly recognised local landmark and boasts breath-taking views of the Snowdonia national Park.

Standing within over ½ Acre of mature landscaped gardens, its stone brick elevations contrasting with its green surroundings, Pen y Coed could be all the home you've ever dreamt of - a substantial family home with luxury appointed accommodation and an elegance befitting its heritage, preserving the grandeur of the house but also adding a modern and contemporary feel, especially the stunning grand reception hall. Much time, love and expense has obviously been lavished on this fine home.

The property is tucked away from the roadside, offering a great deal of privacy yet has an elevated position above Dolgellau so you can fully immerse yourself in the fabulous surroundings. (Pen Y Coed was formerly one dwelling which consisted of approx. 10 bedrooms, 6 Bathrooms, 4 kitchens, 3 car ports, the house can be easily divided up to create more income should one wish to do so as the owners ran a very successful Bed and Breakfast) You can sit back and enjoy all the Stunning Mountain Views. A full fire alarm system throughout the property.

The exterior complements the property perfectly, having a formal feel yet perfect for outdoor living and al-fresco dining - a choice of two linked patios takes care of that - plenty of space to entertain family and friends. The views alone will captivate any visitor and keep them occupied while enjoying a tipple at the end of the day.

This is WOW Factor home that only comes on the market once in once life time.

Location
Dolgellau is one of the most beautiful places in Snowdonia. It may not be one of the top towns people think of when they book their ‘staycation’ in North Wales, some just think all Snowdonia has to offer is Snowdon. Sometimes Southern Snowdonia gets a bit left out, but it’s just as stunning as the North. It’s not quite the ‘Riviera’ of Snowdonia, but obviously we are nearer the Equator!

It’s a fabulous base to explore Snowdonia. If you want mountain biking you have everything including the flat Mawddach Trail which follows the old railway bed to the lovely seaside town of Barmouth. If hurtling down hills on two wheels is your thing, then Dolgellau is the nearest town to Coed y Brenin Mountain Bike Centre and further north you have the rugged slate tracks of Antur Stiniog in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

The town is steeped in history and was formerly the county town of Merionethshire (now Gwynedd). Its main bridge over the Afon Wnion dates back to 1638 and the remains of historic Cymer Abbey, founded in 1198, can be seen in the nearby village of Llanelltyd. This is again within walking distance of the town (being around a mile and a half away). The route also passes through the Dolgellau Golf Course (Nine-Hole), which also serves tea. The stone circle on the Marian (the local recreation field) is not ancient, but left over after the 1949 Eisteddfod
