Photo of Murmur-y-Don Self Catering Accommodation
We think Murmur-y-Don has the best view in Britain. Our 1907 house, set in over an acre, is clean, elegant and unrestored, with most of its original fixtures and fittings its a family house rather than a holiday home. The House and its Situation 'Murmur-y-Don' is a two-storey Arts & Crafts era L-shaped house built in 1907 in its own pine-wooded, drystone walled grounds of just over an acre on top of Harlech Cliff in Snowdonia, about a mile south of the famous old town. It has a very attractive circular observatory room to take full advantage of the spectacular 180 views. Accommodation Every room in the house has a sea view (except the downstairs shower room and the kitchen larder!) The house can sleep six or seven. Upstairs are three double bedrooms (with double beds) and a single bedroom, each with a washhandbasin. The smaller Yellow double bedroom is fine for 2 youngsters, or one adult. The bathroom has the original, long cast-iron Edwardian bath on claw feet. The Views From the house you have the most glorious panoramic views stretching from Snowdon, round the Lleyn Peninsula and across Cardigan Bay to Strumble Head in the south, one of the most extensive views in the British Isles. A Tour of the House A lobby with a luxurious new shower room and loo on the left, then the kitchen, with its large walk-in larder. It is equipped with an Aga, a microwave and an electric stove. There is Goliath, our big fridge-freezer, a dishwasher and a washing machine. A corridor leads to the oak beamed drawing room, with an open fire and digital TV, and the round window, which we use as a dining room. On the right is the study, with lots of family board games and jigsaw puzzles. The floors are polished oak and old frayed rugs. The Beach Walk down the drive through the pines, across the road and into the National Trust field facing the house. At the corner of the field is a gate leading to the zig-zag path down to the beach. The beach is five miles long, wide and sandy. This is the only access apart from the Harlech town access, so you will mostly have this enormous, safe, sandy beach to yourself. There are rock pools and secluded sand dunes, perfect for sunbathing or dune-jumping. The sea is shallow, and warm for Britain! Around Harlech The Royal St David's golf links are just up the road. There are plenty of good family restaurants along the coast. The Victoria at Llanbedr is a family pub with an attractive riverside garden. With castles, wild mountain walks, standing stones, follies, bathing and birdwatching, it's a fine place for a holiday. The History of Murmur-y-Don The house was built in 1907 'regardless of expense' by the Chairman of the Standard Motor Company in Birmingham. Murmur-y-Don means 'the whispering of the waves'.
