A super-comfortable house (once the gardener's) on a magnificent estate with views. For aspiring landowners and garden lovers - a treat

Read guest comments

In the heart of the Llyn peninsula, an immaculate house in gardens people travel to see. The 5,000 acre estate has been in David's family for centuries; open to guests until 6pm, ablaze with rhododendrons and azaleas in spring, it has views down to lake, pastures, woodland and sea. As for Hen Dy, it's the oldest house on the estate and was the gardener's bothy and laundry, with a bell tower that once announced mealtimes. Find a large, sunny sitting room with books, games, soft sofas and SkyTV; in winter, estate logs crackle. The kitchen is to star in (superb equipment, gleaming red Aga), the dining room seats eight. Up stairs – or lift – to big bedrooms that feed off a wide landing, three of which overlook the gardens (one with topiary, statues and gazebo). Red fabrics add pizzazz to the master room, whose dressing room is now a charming double (access being via the shared bathroom). For ball games and barbecues you have your own patch. Just the ticket for garden lovers, comfort-seekers and aspiring country landowners... Dogs will be in heaven too – you're surrounded by some of most gorgeous countryside in Gwynedd.
