Sellers Insight ……
I have had the absolute pleasure of residing at Cyplau for 22 years, spending many happy hours transforming the house and garden to become the peaceful haven that it now is.
Cyplau is Welsh for coupled and in its original form was two cottages that were formed into one cottage after the war. Llanbedr means Peter's village after St Peter the patron of Llanbedr church.
During the winter, Cyplau is warm and cosy and in the Summer, it bursts with light and sunshine. A perfect place for entertaining or alternatively, enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the unspoilt setting. Borders, shrubs, plants and trees decorate the garden, with areas to sit and relax and a productive fruit and vegetable plot on offer too. It has never been a chore to maintain, on the contrary it has been a joy, particularly to admire the everchanging vista throughout the seasons.
From the front gates, a left turn downhill will take you into the picturesque village affording shops, a café, pubs and a charming river walk on a circular route to arrive back in the village. Alternatively, turning right takes you on an uphill see view walk through woods and farmland onto the moors. Public footpaths are plentiful to allow access over the mountains.
Immediately behind the cottage you will find National Park woods which provide exquisite bluebell walks, various fungi and an abundance of birds. Nature at its best! Short drives lead to waterfalls, glacial lakes and beaches, the local one having sand dunes, a thriving cafe and an ancient stone candlelit church. The Llanbedr airfield and Shell Island are also close by. Ideal for keeping fit both mentally and physically with the added benefit of clean air (Snowdonia National Park is one of the few designated clear sky regions in the world) it is an extremely healthy place to dwell.
Llanbedr and Its Surrounds - Cyplau benefits from wonderful river and mountain walks at its doorstep and is located in the popular coastal village of Llanbedr situated on the western coastal fringe of the Snowdonia National Park and close to beautiful sandy beaches.

Harlech with its World Heritage listed castle, famous beach and the renowned Royal St David's links golf course is two miles north of the village.

At least two of the major supermarkets operate a delivery service to the village. A local bus service is on offer, in addition to a railway station only 5 minutes’ walk away which serves the Cambrian Coastline track and provides excellent links to nearby towns including Porthmadog and Barmouth with regular services to the Midlands and beyond.
