A beautiful 19th century old school house set in stunning countryside just outside Snowdonia National Park. The Schoolhouse is close to the beaches on the Llyn Peninsula and has some wonderful walks right on the doorstep. Nearby attractions are Portmeirion, Beddgelert, Abersoch, Porthmadog, Snowdonia Mountain Railway and the castles at Caernarfon and Anglesey. The house is beautifully and eclectically furnished with French, English and Welsh antique furniture creating a warm and cosy atmosphere.

Stayed for a friend’s wedding - the host was great with things like early check in and late breakfast/check out. Fab breakfast. Also, wheelchair accessible, which is hard to find in Wales.

You could book this place just on the basis of the delicious breakfasts (homemade bread, jams and Greek yoghurt, and very tasty cooked fare), yet Karen and Malcolm went the extra mile (and many more!) to make every part of our stay as enjoyable as possible. The house is very…

Karen and Malcolm are lovely hosts, and the annex is a little home from home. Breakfast was delicious, and welsh cakes on welcome were most appreciated after a long journey. Would recommend.
