Criccieth House Rental Photos and Description

The house sits snugly in the mountainous area of Snowdonia, North Wales

Treat yourselves to a peaceful and tranquil break in this luxurious 10 bedroom, C16th country house. The house sits snugly in the mountainous area of Snowdonia, North Wales, just a short walk from the sandy delights of the Ll?n Peninsula and the bustling seaside town of Criccieth.

Gwynedd House offers large group accommodation, either on a self-catering basis or with in-house catering. Local activities range from golf to surfing.

Sleeping up to 21 guests, this south facing, fantastic house is set in 9 acres of garden and woodlands and is perfect for large parties wanting to celebrate a special occasion!

Over 400 years old, this country home was once the home of the family of Lloyd George, the Liberal Prime Minister, in the late 1900s. More recently the property has been used as a lovely country hotel.

Throughout the summer months you can enjoy flower filled gardens, long evening walks and the space to fully unwind or play a game of tennis on the private tennis court.

Spring, summer, autumn or winter, Gwynedd House welcomes you year round!

Children love the freedom to play riotous games of football, rugby and cricket, or simply ride the tree swings, and play with the cat, dog, ponies and chickens. Outdoor amenities include:

- Hard-weather tennis court, with views down to Cardigan Bay.

- 4 x basic tennis rackets available. Please bring your own tennis balls.

- Gymnasium: located in the old coach house to the rear of the property, the gymnasium offers seven different stations.

- The spacious grounds can be transformed into 'The Oval' for an afternoon game of cricket, 'The Olympic Stadium' for an energetic decathlon or 'La Place de L'hotel de Ville' for a relaxing game of boules. All the equipment is provided.

About Oliver's Travels - UK

Your time off is precious. So when you go away, why not make an occasion of it and book somewhere a bit… different?

At Oliver’s Travels we don’t do ordinary. But if you’re looking to rent somewhere quirky, unique and bursting with more character than a bottle of ’59 Lafite Rothschild, we’ve got some stunning luxury villas for you to choose from.

Fancy a romantic weekend for two in a lighthouse, a week away in a converted windmill, or a fortnight relaxing with friends in the grounds of a French chateau?

We’ve got them all here at Oliver’s Travels. Each one of our properties is handpicked by our team to guarantee you a truly memorable luxury villa holiday. By booking direct with the owner from around £40 per person per night, you can experience luxury without burning a hole in your pocket.

Where did it all start?

In 2003, my best mate Ravi and I spent a week at Chateau de Cardou in the Dordogne with a group of our closest friends. It was one of those holidays you never forget. The chateau was stunning, the wine was flowing and the weather was pretty much perfect. Best of all, we had the whole place to ourselves.

As it turns out, that holiday was the start of something pretty special. Before we’d even got back to England, Ravi and I had come up with the basic idea for our first business, Simply Chateau: a website where people could find and book exclusive, luxury villas without having to shell out a fortune.

Why Oliver's Travels - UK chose Gwynedd - Snowdonia

Where are we today?

We’ve grown a bit since then. We���ve now got a team of people who love travelling just as much as we do. Between us, we’ve handpicked every one of the properties you’ll find on the site.

Our emphasis is still on quirky, lavish, one-of-a-kind places to stay, but we now offer villas, castles, stately homes, beach huts and cottages, as well as chateaux – not just in France, but across Europe and the Caribbean.

You may have noticed we’ve changed our name too. Ravi took a bit of persuading, but in the end we agreed on Oliver’s Travels!

What makes this house unique

Why choose ordinary?

So whether you want to treat the family, get together with friends or spend a romantic weekend somewhere special, why choose ordinary when you can have exceptional?

At Oliver’s Travels, we guarantee you a holiday to remember at a price you won’t regret.

If you’re looking for a bit of inspiration, why not take a look at our latest recommendations, where you’ll find a list of our own favourite places to stay? Our concierge service can help personalize your trip down to the smallest detail, or if you're raring to go you can just jump in and start browsing.

Happy travelling!
