Tan Y Fynwent is a seventeenth century town house, set back from St Mary’s Church in the centre of the pretty market town of Dolgellau. It blends the antique (beams, slate floors, listed oak staircase) with the modern (recently refurbished kitchen and laundry/shower room). Local amenities and restaurants are within walking distance of the property. Sandy beaches, mountain hikes, horse riding, biking at Coed Y Brenin, Cadair Idris, Harlech Castle and the glories of the Snowdonia National Park are all short car journeys away.
The accommodation is arranged over four floors in this substantial house.
On the ground floor, there is a recently installed spacious kitchen with oven, gas hobs, dishwasher, fridge, microwave and large pine dining room table and chairs. There is a living room with two sofas, antique pine settle and cwpwrdd deuddarn, as well as wood-burning stove.
On the lower ground floor, there is a laundry/shower room, with freestanding shower unit, toilet, washing machine, clothes horses, iron and ironing board. The pretty back garden has an outside clothes drier.
On the first floor, there is a master bedroom with Victorian brass double bed, covered with a capacious Welsh blanket. There is a second bedroom with twin beds and matching Welsh blankets, suitable for children. There is a family bathroom, with bath, toilet and free-standing shower unit.
The first floor has two further large bedrooms. One contains a double bed, the second contains a single bed and an abundance of toys. There is also a cot for use of guests.
