Nestling on the private Glasfryn Estate on the Llyn Peninsular, Pantymoeliad has just been renovated to an exceptionally high standard. The spacious entrance hall is full of light and leads into the Living Room with squishy caramel leather sofas and high back comfortable armchairs. The original wooden fireplace is the centre of the stage and we do provide our own logs for the woodburning stove. The floors are of local slate and compliment the furnishings. And the views! Windows on all sides look out onto the gardens. The spacious kitchen/diner has slate floors, high pale wood ceilings and a huge oak refectory table with seating for 8 and, of course, lots of Portmeirion crockery. French windows lead onto the garden where clever seating areas have been built into the local stone. A separate utility room with a washer and drier leads into a wet room with shower, loo and sink. Two steps lead to Bedroom 1 which has a great en-suite and is perfect for those guests who struggle a little with the stairs. A stable door leads onto the patio. Three further bedrooms upstairs – all carpeted in grey to match the local slate – and a further family bathroom. Bedroom 4 has bunk beds which will delight the children and Bedroom 2 a flat screen TV. The wall art has been carefully chosen and mainly by local artists. All the bedrooms share glorious views across the gardens towards Cardigan Bay. A majestic Chestnut Tree gives shade in the substantial garden with plenty of room for al fresco dining.

About Tamar Ferguson
The Glasfryn Estate has been in the Williams-Ellis family for many years. Our family home is on the Estate and we have lovingly restored a number of cottages for self catering so that our guests can enjoy the wonderful surroundings which we are so privileged to live in.
Why Tamar Ferguson chose Pwllheli
Pantymoeliad is a beautiful house in an area of outstanding beauty. When we designed the house we ensured that local craftsmen and materials were used wherever possible. The house is heated by a "heat collection system" which extracts heat from the ground which is then controlled by an automatic thermostat - no unsightly radiators downstairs!
What makes this House unique
We also own Glasfryn Parc - the perfect location for a fun filled day for all the family. It is far enough away that guests aren't aware of it at all but yet close enough for those who want to visit.

Beautiful Location and Home
A real home from home. Pristine and smart with a relaxed feel. Lovely garden. Would thoroughly recommend it to any large family.
This is an area of outstanding natural beauty and our lovely home is the ideal base for exploring the mountains and beaches of Snowdonia. The quirky Italiante Village of Portmeirion (which was designed by my relative - Clough Williams-Ellis) is a short drive away. The Prisoner was filmed there in 1967 and today there are plenty of shops of cafes to suit all tastes. We recommend a walk in the Gwylt (the woodlands in Portmeirion) for the views towards Borth y Gest, and, of course, playing in the sands.
The Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway line has now opened between Porthmadog and Caernarfon. Mount Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales and England – you can either take up the challenge of walking to the summit or take the little railway to the summit from the station at Llanberis. The visitor’s Centre has now opened – enjoy some of the local bara brith cake whilst marvelling at the breathtaking views!
Coast/Beach: The stunning beaches of the Llyn Peninsular are on your doorstep. Criccieth with its sandy beach and wonderful castle is only a few minutes away, as is the harbour at Porthmadog. Abersoch and Harlech are within easy reach.
Pwllheli is a delightful seaside resort with a fine blue banner beach; busy market town with art galleries and very popular sailing and watersports centre with one of the best marinas in the UK. Hafan Pwllheli gives access to the sailing waters of Cardigan Bay and the Irish Sea. Plenty of wildlife to spot – seals, seabirds and even dolphins. And of course the Castles! Criccieth Castle stands on an imposing rocky peninsula towards Black Rock Sands: Caernarfon Castle with its impressible battlements, towers above the walled town – look out for the boiling oil or arrows! Penrhyn is a grand Victorian castle where Queen Victoria slept on a huge slate bed. Owned today by the National Trust, it’s great for a day out.
The Oriel Plas Glyn-Y-Weddw Art Gallery is an impressive Gothic Manor House which was built in 1857 as a Dower house for Lady Love Jones Parry and is now a successful modern art gallery. The summerhouse is excellent for lunch (great homemade cakes) and you can then wonder down to the beach at Llanbedrog and make a sand castle (you really don't have to be under 10 to build a castle!).
