Be your own lord or lady of the manor for a week, at this grand country estate near Criccieth
Consisting of a large manor house, as well as a cluster of five holiday cottages, the Talhenbont Hall country estate can be found in the heart of the rolling Welsh countryside on the Llyn Peninsula, just two miles from the pretty coastal town of Criccieth.
Sitting on an impressive 75-acre estate encompassed by unspoilt landscapes and an abundance of nature, the hall boasts a truly scenic setting for an escape at any time of the year. It even has its own 1.5 mile stretch of river running through the grounds, which is a haven for otters, salmon and trout and has a series of stunning waterfalls, perfect for picnicking by on a sunny day.
Once the home of William Vaughan and used as a garrison for Cromwell's soldiers during the Civil War, the Grade II listed 17th century hall boasts original features including a Minton tiled floor, oak-panelled rooms, impressive fireplaces and the house even has its own coat of arms.
Outside there is an all-weather tennis court, outdoor chess board, and a Japanese water garden, with resident peacocks to spot roaming the grounds too.
The main house has five bedrooms, one with a four poster bed (pictured), a beautiful, traditional kitchen with oil-fired Aga and several other reception rooms, some with open fires.
Prices (which vary, depending on the time of year) for the main hall or the separate cottages, can be found on the Sykes website at: www.sykescottages.co.uk
