About Graham Spalding
We live in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, with our 4 children aged 12, 10, 8 and 6. I used to holiday around the Harlech area or up at Nefyn when I was a child and when our children came along, we started to explore the UK once again. We love Snowdonia and had dreamed of buying a holiday home that would give us access to Nefyn and the Lleyn Peninsular; Snowdonia and also the beach. Garth Mawr provides all this as well as great views over the estuary to Snowdon and over the sea and a large garden and neighbouring land to explore which we don't have at home.
Graham Spalding purchased this Farmhouse in 2012
Why Graham Spalding chose Harlech
We love Garth Mawr for:- its age - it was built around 1750 and in places the walls are 4 or 5 feet thick;- its character - it has lots of nooks and crannies as well as a huge fireplace in the large lounge;- its remoteness - the nearest neighbour is around half a mile;- its size - our family of 6 often stays with friends and their children, so we might have 10 or 11 with the children sharing together. We love Harlech and Snowdonia for:- the walks at Snowdon, the Glyders or on one of the paths that pass near the house;- the beaches at Harlech, Borth-y-gest, Barmouth, Llandanwg;- the day trips to Nefyn and the Ty Coch (pub) on the beach; Caernarfon; Betsw-y-Coed; the cycle centre and tree ropes in Coed-y-Brenin;- golf at Royal St Davids (a mile from the house) and Nefyn
What makes this Farmhouse unique
We love the remoteness of Garth Mawr - at home we live on a main road and wake to the sounds of the rush hour; at Garth Mawr we wake to silence or the sounds of the country - sheep and cattle. Last year my then 11 year old walked the mile to Harlech with his cousin without us knowing - but it was mostly on tracks across fields and a little on a small lane. We love letting the kids off the leash - they play football or hide and seek in the garden or explore the neighbouring fields and make dens. My wife loves the view from the bed in the main downstairs double bedroom - across the Dwyryd Estuary to Portmeirion and Snowdon beyond. We love dozing in front of the log fire after a day out walking or exploring.
