Luxury Self Catering Accommodation | Bennar Beach Dyffryn Ardudwy

Self Catering near Bennar Beach Dyffryn Ardudwy | Llys Bennar

As you cross over a little stone bridge to get to the front door, you know that Llys Bennar, a barn conversion near Bennar Beach in Dyffryn Ardudwy is going to be a bit special.


The cottage is the largest within a collection of four barn conversions. An oak panelled hall way complete with antique chair and expensive looking pictures leads off to a well equipped kitchen which is filled with the mouth-watering smell of freshly baked bread, a much appreciated welcome gift from the owners, Sue and Richard.

The kitchen in turn leads to the breakfast room. My photo of the breakfast room doesn’t do it justice perhaps. This nice bright room houses a huge long bench seat facing onto an impressive oak table. Perfect for family meals, board games and colouring in! There is a small WC and a boot room come utility next to the kitchen

Next door, the games room has a full sized pool table; great fun on a warm evening with the patio doors opened up onto the back garden, drinking a beer and eating peanuts between shots!

There are 2 ground floor ensuite bedrooms with super-king beds. A central stairway leads you to the upstairs lounge. The lounge, once again, is a treasure trove of antique furniture and tasteful décor. Having this room upstairs is fantastic as the views are spectacular. Rolling sand dunes stretch out in front of you and behind them a crystal blue sea and a cloudless sky.

Two bathrooms and three more bedrooms upstairs. A spacious and wonderfully sunny twin room, a smaller room with a set of bunk beds for the children and finally the very impressive master bedroom.

The wonderful Bennar Beach with its Green Coast Award is the obvious attraction when you’re staying at Llys Bennar, and is only a 10 minute walk away. But perhaps because the area is renowned for its beautiful coastline the mountains behind are sometimes overlooked. Luckily maybe as unlike Snowdon itself, an hour to the north, the Rhinog Mountains are ignored by many tourists and remains one of the Britain’s few true wildernesses.

Snowdonia is of course fast becoming Britain’s activity capital. Mountain biking, white water rafting, pony trekking, rock climbing are all available nearby. Whilst Celtic hill forts, religious shrines, mighty medieval castles and revealing industrial remains will entertain the more cerebral. We also found plenty of traditional pubs, charming tearooms serving home made cakes and stylish restaurants.

    Six of us spent two wonderful weeks in this amazing cottage. The website pictures, whilst comprehensive, don’t give the true scale and attractiveness of this property and the gardens. It certainly had the wow factor for us. Sue and Richard went above and beyond to ensure we were made welcome, with lovely homemade bread and cookies waiting for us when we arrived. It is such a peaceful location with amazing beaches and countryside a short walk away. Barmouth and Harlech are within easy reach and the cottage is an excellent base from which to explore Snowdonia. There are good shopping facilities in the nearby village, with larger supermarkets available in Barmouth and Porthmadog. We will certainly be returning to Llys Bennar to explore more of this beautiful area.

    This is a lovely comfortable house in a quiet location with a tranquil garden. A short walk from from Bennar Beach with its amazing views. Sue and Richard are lovely hosts. Lots of quiet walks along the lanes or coast path. A perfect place for relaxation, although lots to do within the area if you like to be more busy. Portmerion only a short drive away, always worth a visit. We enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again.
