This spectacular country retreat in Llanelltyd, Snowdonia, sleeps sixteen people in eight bedrooms.

Tan Llan is a very special, sought-after retreat, set in substantial grounds in the small village of Llanelltyd near Dolgellau, in the Snowdonia National Park. Tan Llan consists of a spacious, three-storey country house, and an adjacent renovated coaching house. There are six bedrooms in the Main House, three with en-suites, plus two en-suite bedrooms set in the eaves of the neighbouring Coach House, meaning a group of up to sixteen people can enjoy a holiday here. The main house also has a family bathroom, two ground floor cloakrooms, a superb kitchen with breakfast bar and large dining area, a utility room, a sitting room with open fire, a garden room and a reading area. The Coach House also offers a kitchen, a utility room, a sitting room with dining area and woodburner and a cosy snug. Outside, there are near 15 acres of wonderful grounds surrounding this superb retreat, with two patio areas, plenty of off road parking, plus well-kept lawns studded with tall, established trees. There's also an external games room housing a table tennis table, perfect for unpromising days. The River Mawddach drifts by at the edge of the grounds, adding to the idyllic atmosphere. A well-regarded restaurant serves the village of Llanelltyd, whilst just two miles away is the popular market town of Dolgellau offering a fine range of independent boutiques, bars and excellent eateries. Just a fifteen-minute drive away are the sweeping sands of Snowdonia's fabulous coastline, whilst at every turn, the delights of this celebrated National Park can be enjoyed, with deep valleys, towering mountains and rich woodland beckoning to the intrepid adventurer! Whether you're seeking a quiet family hideaway or a well-placed base for discovering Snowdonia, Tan Llan is sure to delight.


This property was far too good for us! A lovely location and a place we will remember for years to come. A perfect location for a 30th surprise birthday getaway for my wife!
Dr Lanagan

We stayed here for a week with family and friends and enjoyed every minute. We couldn't have asked for more, this place is stunning to look at and was so peaceful. Even though there was a lot of us, there was ample space for every one. From the cleanliness to the attention to detail, this place has it all. This is one of the best places we have stayed in and can't wait to return.
Mrs Scott

Tan Llan went above and beyond our expectations. It is an amazing house with every thing (and more) that you would need. The owners could not have done enough to make our stay extra special; a big thank you to them.
Mr Dickson

The house was fantastic, we had a great time there!
Miss William

The location of the house was absolutely fantastic. The open fire and availability of logs was greatly appreciated, especially after a day in the mountains. The lounge and all the downstairs rooms were very family friendly, plenty of space for everyone. The master bedroom was lovely. We greatly appreciated the walk books in the conservatory. The house is beautiful and the position perfect, we all had a wonderful ruby wedding celebration week.
