This is a 1970's highly skilful barn conversion. The property exude great charm and character and provide a wonderful holiday venue, - with great facilities and a high degree of comfort. The views to the sea and over the farmland to the mountains are breathtaking. Just one of the 4 cottages on this secluded site which makes them ideal for extended families of several generations,- but they do remain extremely attractive for smaller parties including couples. The obvious attractions of our cottages are the proximity to a gorgeous child friendly beach , only half a mile distance and the wonderful hill walking in the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains in the immediate area. We are at the South end of the Snowdonia national Park. For more serious climbers Mt Snowdon is 35 miles away and Cadair Idris which is almost as Challenging is 16.5 miles. For serious Mountain Bikers the world famous Coed y Brenin is 17 miles away. For Bird Watchers a wide variety of coastal birds are present at seaside locations and the wonderful Ospreys are nesting at a site near Tremadog where the same pair have successfully hatched chicks,- having made the trip from N.Africa for the last 10 years. The cottages are ideally located for all these activities but those who want complete rest there is nowhere so peaceful just to take in the wonderful views of sand dunes and sea and mountains behind. We are just 5 miles from the World Heritage site at Harlech with its magnificent castle,- and where the famous Royal St Davids Golf Course is located. The Italianate Village of Porthmerion is within easy reach.

The properties are non-smoking and sadly we cannot accept pets.

Weekly Bookings are FRIDAY - FRIDAY,- with occasional variation by special arrangement.

                                                            A Great Stay at a Great Home.....

                                                            Malcolm N.

                                                            We stayed at Llys Bennar for around 10 nights with family coming and going across the time and sharing the great lounge, open fire, dining and of course the Pool table. Really good for all ages with the beach just a short walk away and multiple things to do and see across the whole time.

                                                            Richard and Sue were attentive throughout - but ever ready to let us come and go as we wanted and gave 100% help, guidance and support.

                                                            A great time had by all from <3 yrs to over 60, in a very comfortable home for everyone.

                                                            Lovely stay, we'd love to be back!

                                                            Margot W.

                                                            We had a lovely time at Llys Bennar, the property is huge and with a wonderful environment, and even though we were at the full capacity (8 people) we still had a lot of space as all the rooms are really big, and very well equipped. The landlords are really nice and accommodating and welcomed us warmly with homemade cookies! We wish we could have stayed longer!

                                                            Thanks for a lovely review. You were great guests and we very much enjoyed your company,- you will all be welcome any time you choose to return.

                                                            Best Wishes

                                                            Richard & Sue

                                                            Perfect holiday home from home

                                                            Nicky H.

                                                            Well what can I say apart from wonderful.

                                                            Richard and Sue were so welcoming when we got there. Richard had already been in touch 2 days before to check we knew where to find them and where to park. He greeted us on arrival and showed us around the house where we were greeted with homemade bread and cakes from sue...lovely.

                                                            The house is very spacious and well equipped. There were 4 adults and 5 children on our stay and we didn't need anything more.

                                                            Beautifully decorated throughout...very clean and every bed and sofa was very comfortable.

                                                            They provided us with a high chair and travel cot which was a big help to us too.

                                                            The pool table was a massive hit with everyone.

                                                            The dining table was fabulous...the children enjoyed setting the table ready for breakfast everymorning where we could all sit comfortably around and have a lovely chat about our day ahead.

                                                            The little river out the front was lovely to listen to aswell and watch the birds.

                                                            I could go on...i cant recommend enough.

                                                            Fabulous holiday

                                                            If your looking for somewhere for a big family holiday this is the place...2 smaller cottages either side and would be perfect for a lovely family holiday

                                                            Our family and some friends totaling 8 stayed for a long weekend. Before we arrived we had received an email from Owners direct saying the cottage was a scam and we were all very concerned as we had plans for our short break. I called Richard and Susan the owners straight away and they put us at ease and reassured us that all was OK and advised that Owners Direct had a problem with there system. We were meet in the evening by Richard who showed us around the property. The cottage was very well equipped to cater to all our needs. Susan had baked breed and cakes which were delicious and a thoughtful touch. In the morning we finally got to see the well maintained gardens and views of the sea and surrounding farm. The Cottage was easy to find and in our option situated in a convenient location for our needs and was comfortable and homely with plenty of room for everyone. The beautiful beach is just down the road and Snowdon only an hour drive through beautiful county roads and small villages. We toughly enjoyed our stay at your cottage and found our dealings with you easy and all email communication was swift, would differently stay here again if in the area.

                                                            The area around the cottage is breath taking and then when we arrived at the cottage it was exactly the same as the area. We was greeted by the owner Richard who was very welcoming and showed us around the property. The property is huge and very well equipped. The children loved the pool table and kept them quiet for a while. We also loved the home made cakes and bread that awaited us. Would defiantly recommend this to anyone.
