Ystumllyn is large Elizabethan house of historic importance in the area. Views from the house are spectacular. It is surrounded by extensive gardens and woodland, and also has a marshland area which is designated as a SSSI because of its plant and bird life, and is currently managed by the RSPB. The house is connected by a footpath to the beach at Criccieth, about 1 mile away. It is ideally situated for exploring the unspoilt Lleyn Peninsular and also Snowdonia and its mountains. The house has a large airy and well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room with aga, and a conventional electric cooker, dishwasher, fridge and microwave. There is an impressive lounge with dining area, a wood burning stove, TV, CD, DVD and video players. The drawing room is more cosy with an open fire and TV. Upstairs the bedrooms are spacious three of them able to accommodate a whole family! The property is furnished in keeping with age of the house. We only let to family groups.
There are also two toilets, one with washbasin, on the ground floor.
Please note that we do not provide bed linen or towels. Each bed has a duvet and pillow for which you will need to provide covers.
There is an aga in the kitchen which is supplemented by a full size electric oven for those who are not familiar with aga cooking.
The living room has a wood burning stove and the drawing room has an open fire. Wood is provided for these. There is also central heating available. Please note there are two reception rooms.
This is an old property so the elderly may find the floors uneven, and there are steps between rooms on the ground floor.
Children will find this old house fascinating, but care must be taken to supervise them in the house and on the stairs as with any other house. The garden is also great fun to explore but has the usual hazards, so children should be supervised.
Please note there are two living rooms, with ample seating for all. There are tables to seat everyone in the kitchen and also in the dining area of the living room....moreless
