Property description

A substantial Grade II Listed Gentry Manor House and converted Coach House, parts of which date from the 14th century and noted for its rich historical past, the seat of an important Merionydd estate. Stands in just under 4 Acres with striking views of the surrounding countryside, Snowdon and Cardigan Bay.

Positioned in an outstanding location within the wooded lower slopes of the Rhinog range in the Snowdonia National Park overlooking Cardigan Bay, Maes Y Neuadd certainly catches the eye - a substantial Grade II Listed Gentry Manor and converted Coach House, parts of which date from the 14th century and noted for its rich and colourful history. Standing in just under 4 Acres of formal gardens, private woodland and driveway, the position affords spectacular views across miles of open countryside, stretching from Mount Snowdon in the north to the sea in the west. Maes Y Neuadd offers many exciting possibilities and development potential but does require extensive renovation work.

Being a property dating back hundreds of years you can expect to find charm and character by the bucket load, with monumentally thick walls, high chimneys and generous sash windows, all of which you cannot fail but be impressed by. The significant attic space is also noteworthy for its spectacular hewn pegged collared trusses, hewn chamfered cross beams and joists. Whilst originally a singular family home, over the years Maes Y Neuadd morphed into a reputable country house hotel with additions added in the 1980s and the conversion of the stables into a self-contained dwelling. There are of course many period features to enjoy throughout, the drawing room being a case in point whilst many rooms overlook the gardens together with superb westerly views.

Maes Y Neuadd has had an interesting past, where it’s believed the land was originally gifted by the King to the first Lord Lieutenant of Merionethshire where as a Royalist estate, it was visited on a number of occasions by Oliver Cromwell. From the mid 17th century it became the principle home of the Wynn family until the early 20th century, when it was converted to an exclusive country house. And this is where its next chapter begins, offering those with a vision, endless possibilities. The floorplan contained within these details will provide you with some idea of its size and potential. It could be re-imagined into a boutique country guest house OR into residential/holiday apartments with owners accommodation, all of which would be subject to planning consents and approvals.

The garden grounds, consisting of formal tiered lawn, a separate paddock and woodland with pond, provide a fitting backdrop with the extensive driveway culminating in a circular turning area and parking space together with a garage, modelled much in the same way as the main dwelling.


Maes Y Neuadd lies within the Snowdonia National Park, on a country lane on the edge of the hamlet of Eisingrug which is tucked away in a hidden wooded valley with the historic castle town of Harlech located only approximately 3½ miles distant with its impressive beach, shops, cafes/restaurants and World Heritage Site castle. The sand dunes are home to the Harlech national nature reserve whilst the Royal St David's Golf Club plays host to a course that boast some spectacular scenery.

Leisure opportunities are abundant in the area and include sailing, tennis, golf, water-sports of all description, cycling and walking/climbing in the Rhinogs or the higher peaks to the north, to include Snowdon. Essential transport links into Snowdonia and outlying regions is enabled via the North Wales A55 Expressway which runs along the northern coastline, connecting with the M56/M6 to Liverpool and Manchester. There are many train stations dotted along the Cambrian Coastline railway which provide excellent links to all the coastal towns, including Porthmadog and Barmouth with services to Shrewsbury and the Midlands. From Llandudno Junction there are regular trains services to Chester and direct to London.
