Glorious views from a beautiful old Arts & Crafts house 260 feet above the sea in Snowdonia National Park. Bookings run from 16:00 Sunday to 11:00 the following Sunday.

The space

Murmur-y-Don sleeps seven, in three double bedrooms and one single bedroom. All bedrooms have a washhandbasin and sea views.

There is a bathroom upstairs, with the huge original 1907 cast-iron bath, and a shower room downstairs with a modern Aqualisa rainwater shower.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a Firebird (like an Aga but smarter), an electric oven, a microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher, toaster, Dolce Gusto espresso machine and a walk-in larder.

There is free fibre-optic wi-fi broadband. Because the walls of the house are three feet thick, its range is limited — it won’t work in the kitchen, for example.

The solid oak-floored drawing room is L-shaped and has an HD TV with a DVD player. Off the drawing room is the Round Window, a circular room to take advantage of the spectacular views. It has 108 panes of glass, each one hand curved so the horizon isn’t refracted. Think of a pencil in a glass of water.

Guest access

The house and grounds, with just over an acre of drystone-walled lawns and trees, is at the disposal of our guests. Bookings run from 16:00 Sunday to 11:00 the following Sunday.

Murmur-y-Don is in a stunning location; a practically deserted, beautifully flat and sandy beach at the bottom of the cliff, a remarkably well-preserved castle practically next door, and a charming little town around it. We loved the circular dining room, so full of light, and eating there with stunning sunsets as our backdrop. We had 5 days of unbroken sunshine, which meant lots of beach walking and making full use of the garden. On our second day the upstairs loo began leaking quite heavily; one quick call to Gwyn and this was fixed within the hour - brilliant. Gwyn's house manual is a good read, amusing and informative. The house was a brilliant size for our group (6 of us) - just a lovely holiday in a lovely place.

The house was full of character and charm. It was very comfortable and felt like it was our home for the week. The views from the house where stunning.

We had a really lovely stay at an old, beautiful house with lots of character and history - and it was a real 'home from home'. The view was amazing, and the walks along the beach were lovely. There is lots to do in the area, even when the weather isn't kind! We would love to come back again.
