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.


Rip off merchants - AVOID!
I have withheld writing this review until our complaint was resolved. We stayed here for my sisters 40th birthday in a group of 9. The house was a great place to hold a birthday however there were a few problems upon arrival. One of the rooms was flooded and the bed soaked rendering it uninhabitable, several window blinds were broken and some other items were not functioning such as the ice maker. We didn't let this spoil our weekend away and raised it with the owner who advised this wouldnt be an issue. BUT, when it came to checking out it was a different story. The owner withheld the security deposit and we were billed for additional cleaning hours, re-sanding a coffee table, charges for replacement pans and woks, plates being put back in the wrong cupboard and many other ridiculous charges. We didn't cause any of the damage we were accused of. We did break a few cups which we were happy to replace, however this was a cowardly attempt at defrauding us from our security deposit. Judging by several other reviews on here and other websites this isn't the first time the owners have pulled this trick. If you absolutely must stay here, be sure to book on a credit card as this matter had to be resolved by them, who refunded the full deposit.

Poor customer service
Main house was well equipped and well presented but during our stay (a cold autumn weekend) the coach house had neither hot water nor heating that functioned. Disappointingly, customer service was lacking and it took several phone calls on our part, to get it fixed. Heating was fixed after a day or so but water was only fixed just before we were leaving for home. I recognise that things will go wrong in houses from time to time but it was the poor response from the contact (not sure if we were liaising with owner or a the property manager) which sadly the shine off a long-awaited family reunion.

Outstanding Property and Grounds
Would you believe for my wife's 60th we entertained 42 family and friends over the week. It was memorable not only to us...but to all who visited.

Beautiful house, perfect surroundings!
This is one amazing house/s. 16 of us stayed, very comfortable and perfect in every way. The grounds are beautiful and I imagine they would be even better in the summer months. The house is equipped with luxury and everything and more you could need for the perfect break away!!

We loved the house and the surrounding area was stunning. Everybody had a fantastic holiday and we would all go back to that region in Wales again. The scenery was breathtaking. We loved it.
