Llanfendigaid Estate, located on the Cardigan Bay coast of southern Gwynedd (formerly Merioneth: Welsh: Meirionnydd, Sir Feirionydd), near Tywyn in north Wales is a mid-Georgian house that has belonged to the same family for over 600 years. Llanfendigaid is listed Grade II* by CADW which is only given to houses of exceptional historic interest. The estate once encompassed over 16,000 acres (65 km2), is now reduced to 16 acres (0.065 km2) within the Snowdonia National Park.

History[edit]

The Nanney-Wynn family and their ancestors have occupied the lands of Llanfendigaid since approximately 1241. John Nanney married the Anwyl heiress in the early 17th century which means the family is related to Evan Vaughan Anwyl who descends from Owain Gwynedd. The current owner of the estate is William Nanney-Wynn Garton-Jones.

Llanfendigaid is a member of Premier Cottages and is operated as a high quality flex-catering complex.
