The
Experience

The estate has been in the family for centuries and you’re encouraged to explore it all. Both walled gardens, the wildflower meadow, a Baroque area with a reflecting pool, seven acres of ancient woodland… Help yourself to herbs, meander around the mile-long circular woodland walk. For ball games you have your own patch.

Hen Dy is the oldest house on the estate and was the gardeners’ bothy and laundry, with a bell tower that announced mealtimes. Now there’s a sunny sitting room with books, games and a large fireplace – estate logs are left for you. Upstairs big bedrooms overlook the gardens.

The gardens are lovely – ablaze with rhododendrons and azaleas in spring with views down to lake, pastures, woodland and sea. In season a trug of estate fruit and vegetables will arrive on the doorstep. Abersoch is three miles down the road and you’re surrounded by some of the most glorious countryside in north Wales.

Reviews

The perfect place to completely unwind from the frantic world outside. I felt as though I would have absolutely no need to go beyond the grounds of the estate and could spend many happy days strolling around the gardens and woodland areas. That would not include venturing onto the rest of the estate, either. Absolute peace and quiet, with a glass of wine by the reflecting pool.

Karen, Sawday's inspector

Lovely house in wonderful spot - the gardens & woodlands are amazing. Easy reach of lots of superb beaches. Had a wonderful week.

Location

The neighbourhood

Abersoch is the closest place to go out for a meal or an ice cream. The owner can give advice on good pubs and restaurants. It has a number of independent shops and it's popular in summer with visitors who come to windsurf, sail, jet ski and spot dolphins; the beach is sandy and sheltered and popular. Snowdonia is at your feet.

Local points of interest from Bettina Harden

  • Beautiful rural setting & exceptional gardens
  • Buzzing Abersoch is a centre for sailing and windsurfing - full of trendy restaurants and bars
  • Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - sensational walking and the coastal path within minutes.
  • We own 2 islands and if you chat up Colin the boatman he may take you to see puffins, guillemots and shearwaters. Birdlovers heaven! Seals and dolphins are frequent visitors.
  • Plas Bodegroes Michelin Star restaurant 10 minutes away
  • Peace, beauty, beaches, mountains all on hand
