The Experience

Extended in the 1920s by Clough Williams-Ellis, creator of the Italianate village of Portmeirion, this charming manor house sits on its own estate. Outside are sloping lawns, formal parterres and a wildflower meadow, inside are twisty corridors, marvellous antique furniture and staircases that date from the 1600s. The house is still in the family; paintings and ceramics by the family decorate several of the walls. The ancient oak woodlands are a joy to explore, and there’s a trout-filled lake you may fish. The ground floor comprises a beautifully furnished hall, a cosy sitting room with an inglenook, a magnificent dining room with an oak refectory table and a lovely kitchen. Everything shines. Trot up two steps to find a sitting room for children – sofa, toys, books, TV – and two good bedrooms. On the upper floors are the rest of the bedrooms, full of character and style, and big old-fashioned bathrooms with up-to-the-minute showers. No need to fight for the views: every room has one. All this and coats, hats, maps and wellies to borrow, a housekeeper to look after you, even suits of armour on the stairs! Glorious.

Reviews

Carregfelen - what a place. Lived up to all that was promised...Conversation around the log fire - my favourite perch being the window seat. Delightful gatherings around the intimate yet grand dining table. The family portraits lending a sense of occasion & looking on approvingly. The house worked so well for our party of 10 - the annexe providing a charming addition of a separate sitting room to withdraw to - a quiet space from the collective. The setting and grounds were beautiful with the magnificent view of the mountain from the front door & such thoughtful hosts - a very special place.

Yet another brilliant stay in a most magical place

Local points of interest from Tamar Ferguson

  • 2000 acre private country estate surrounded by ancient oak woodlands - perfect for dog walking or just exploring.
  • The pretty seaside town of Criccieth is a 5 minute drive (or 50 minute walk for the active ones among us!) - the pretty castle dominates the town and is a must to visit. Lovely cafes and ice cream parlours.
  • Portmeirion is only a short drive away - created by Clough Williams-Ellis (the owner of the cottage is his great nephew) this quirky Italianaite village is full of surprises. Iconic architecture, scenic walks, restaurants, cafes and ice cream parlours!
  • Llanbedrog is a charming little seaside village with a superb beach and the most famous line of beach huts in Wales. Visit the Oriel Plas Glyn Y Weddw Gallery - see the owner's (David) sculpture "Louise" in the garden. Lovely tea room with homemade cakes
  • Black Rock Sands is a must - The beach is so vast that you can drive your car onto it. Perfect for dog walking, shell collecting, windsurfing or just having a good old run about.
  • We include a lovely welcome pack and a large basket of our own logs for the open fires. Home cooked meals are available.
