Stunning Grade II* Listed Farmhouse on the Beautiful Llŷn Peninsula | Plas-Ffor

Standing quietly strong and proud in a peaceful corner of the Llŷn countryside, this handsome slate-and-stone farmhouse has been lovingly restored to create a strikingly attractive and supremely comfortable 21st century home.

We have a strong suspicion that once you’re there, you won’t want to leave. In fact we might still be there when you arrive (OK we won’t, but we really, really love it. So we might).
It’s hard to convey how well this house has been restored – no detail, surface or finish has been overlooked. There’s so much history to the place too – including *spoiler alert* a 16th century priest hole which now houses a luxurious rainfall shower in the main bathroom.

But first things first. Let’s guide you through the ground floor. Every space is a showstopper here.

First up, the large sitting room. It’s a beauty. Oak flooring, exposed beams, and a huge inglenook fireplace with wood burner. Leather sofas and exposed stonework make it a joy of inviting textures. Pour yourself a large drink, sit back and enjoy some mindful contemplating of them all. There’s even a turntable if you want to bring your vinyl! A studded wooden door – part of the original home – opens onto a spiral stone staircase and leads upstairs to the master bedroom’s en suite.

Next up, the kitchen. This is an unexpected big reveal. No one has yet managed to walk into this room without uttering a deeply sincere ‘wow’. A huge, frameless glass wall showcases the most magnificent mountain views, looking out to Yr Eifl mountains across the garden and farmland. Granite work surfaces, a polished concrete floor and ultra modern gleaming white cupboards contrast with a large antique wood cabinet. There’s underfloor heating, a dining table for 6 and all the kit and caboodle you could possibly need to cook up a real feast. It’s perfect.

From the kitchen, a glass link corridor leads back to a snug with a cute little rocking chair. Also downstairs you’ll find a large laundry and boot room as well as a study and downstairs loo. The whole house is furnished with a tasteful mix of vintage antique finds and quality modern pieces.

The main staircase to access the first floor leads from the hallway. Upstairs we have three bedrooms – two doubles (one of which has a kingsize bed and en-suite with freestanding bath) and one single. All beautifully presented with beautiful fabrics and furnishings, including more lovely antique and mid-century pieces. A separate family bathroom houses the aforementioned priest-hole shower. There is underfloor heating and superfast broadband connection throughout.

The accommodation is ideal for a family or a group of friends. Lots of sociable space to gather together, as well as some quirky quiet corners to enjoy a bit of solo cross wording, reading, or a restorative 40 winks. The rocking chair in the snug is a great place to sit back and enjoy the loveliness of it all.

Outside there is a wonderful slate patio, a dining area, and a hot tub set within a large lawned garden.

The Llŷn is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and one of Britain’s oldest pilgrimage routes. On either count it’s not hard to see why.

An exceptional and dramatic shoreline of coves, cliffs, bays, secret sandy beaches, offshore islands and stacks, wild beating waves – it’s a picture of what an idyllic coastal wilderness might look like. In paradise. Or an Arthurian legend.

What do we love most about the Llŷn? Well, the markedly slower pace of life is a very good start; it makes us feel like we can just gently exhale and let go of it all. But it is visually charming too, peppered with pretty villages, whitewashed farmhouses and patchwork fields. And of course, that splendid coast. All of these things conspire to make us feel utterly relaxed, revitalised and restored.

The Llŷn’s sandy beaches and sheltered bays are brilliant playgrounds for all sorts of watersports including kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, SUPing and surfing – but they’re also great for the more traditional seaside pursuits of paddling, swimming, rock pooling and sandcastling. Oh, and they’re particularly good for ice-cream licking too…

An abundance of quiet country lanes and cycle tracks make this a great place to bring along the bikes, and if you like walking you’re in for a treat. You can access the whole 95-mile coastline of the Llŷn by following the spectacular Wales Coastal Path from Caernarfon to Porthmadog.

Assuming you’re travelling by car, the farmhouse is five minutes from the closest beach and 40 minutes from the foot of Snowdon. It is 5 minutes from Pwllheli, 15 minutes from Abersoch, 15 minutes from Morfa Nefyn and the Ty Coch Inn, and Criccieth is 10 minutes away. The garden centre ‘Tyddyn Sachau’ is just a few minutes walk.

    The house that dreams are made of !!! We had a fantastic week at Plas Ffor – Jim & his family were lovely hosts & super helpful. Every room in the house was just magical. We wanted for nothing – very well equipped kitchen, very useful utility room, amazing bathrooms, super duper hot tub, fabulous log burner, dreamy comfy beds and the most amazing views. I could have happily stayed for a month. Just book it, you will not regret it.
