Romantic Self Catering Barn Conversion nr. Beach Dyffryn Ardudwy | Stabal-Bennar

It’s the little things that make the difference don’t you think? The decorative plates bought at that antiques fair last summer. The Aaron jumper clad teddy bear with his ever so cheeky face. And the flowers, freshly cut and arranged in preparation for your arrival. Of course the location is perfect, all the facilities are there and everything is clean and tidy. But it’s the small details that give Stabal that homely feel that I like so much.

The cosy lounge has one of those invitingly plump sofas as well as a digital tv. The adjoining kitchen is well equipped with the usual oven, microwave, toaster, kettle etc. The ground floor master bedroom has a bed below a charming Georgian type window and, like the rest of the cottage, is refreshingly free of chintz. There’s also a small child’s bedroom suitable for younger children. The bathroom has a shower over bath arrangement and is, again, spotlessly clean.



‘Stabal’ is part of a converted row of 4 barns. There’s a beautifully kept garden area which in turn is surrounded by fields full of ubiquitous welsh sheep.

The property sits between the two villages of Dyffryn and Tal y Bont. Dyffryn has a couple of pubs serving food. There’s also a well stocked grocery store, friendly butchers, garage and post office in the village. Tal y Bont is a little smaller but also has a pub and of course the famous ‘Tony’s’ Italian restaurant.

One of the best reasons to visit Stabal is the sandy beach just a short 500m away. This small part of the coastline is the favoured spot of many who are in the know with miles of un-spoilt sandy beach stretching out in both directions. And when you eventually tire of building sandcastles there is of course the adventure playground of Snowdonia itself right on your doorstep. So if you’re looking for that perfect peaceful gateway or a romantic break away from all the hustle and bustle I can strongly recommend Stabal.

    A lucky last minute find that fitted the bill perfectly. Infinetly better than a small soggy tent! (Even if it would only have been soggy for the last day.) Everything we needed. Thanks very much.

    Bennar Beach
    A lovely cottage and gardens in a very interesting location – fantastic walks and lots of places to see. We have really enjoyed our stay here. An ideal base for our grandsons first holiday.

  6. Sibyl, Birmingham says:

    There are lots of footpaths to explore if you go up onto the hills, where it’s astonshingly quiet and peaceful and the views are spectacular. And you can go along the beach for miles. We had a very good week in a comfortable cottage, and are keen to go back to this part of the world.

    Mawddach TrailA lovely relaxing holiday at a charming cottage. Plenty of things to do in the surrounding area and a fantastic beach on the doorstep. Weather could have been better!

  8. B Martin, Birmingham says:

    We had a lovely stay and the cottage was just right. There is so much to do in the surraounding area that we couldn’t fit it in! We will definitely be back again.

  9. Shalini, Hertfordshire says:

    A lovely cosy cottage just right for the two of us and our toddler. The location was perfect. As the cottage was located away from the main road, it made it ideal for our little one to enjoy the garden and watch the lambs in the neighbouring fields. The welcome was wonderful and Sue and Richard were so friendly and welcoming. We definitely hope to go back.

  10. R. A. Moore Wem Shropshire says:

    Spent week 12 / 19th @ Stabal with 6 year old grandson; his holiday so we spent most of time on beach. The weather was very favourable which added to the enjoyment.
    Stabal was compact but comfortable for the three of us.
    I went to Grammer school with Richard (Ikin ) so it was an opportunity to catch up with events over the last 50 years.

  11. Dave & Jo, Manchester says:

    Just had a lovely short break at the quaint Stabal cottage. What a great location and scenic setting. We hardly used the car as we love walking in the hills which were easily accessible through Talybont village up to the Ardudwy way. But is was also only 1/2 mile from the massive expansive beach. Sue and Richard were very friendly and helpful, and those delicious home made scones and bread were a nice surprise when we arrived. We’ll definitely be back..Dave & Jo

  12. Mr & Mrs Jeffs west midlands says:

    Just come back from a weeks stay at Y Stabal cottage the cottage was just the right size for the two of us we had a lovely relaxing holiday after Mr. Jeffs had a serious heart attack it was just what the doctor ordered a relaxing quiet holiday. Richard made us feel at home and his wife made lovely biscuits and homemade bread for us which was a pleasant surprise. Would recommend this cottage to anyone.

  13. Sue + Martin ,Kegworth says:

    We have just had the most fantastic few days break in this delightful cottage. The weather was amazing and the setting was perfect-so peaceful and quiet,nothing to hear but the sheep and the birds tweeting. The beach too was incredible and so close and the sunsets were heavenly. Nothing to fault at all-the owners Richard + Sue were so friendly and welcoming-we will certainly return and wouldn,t hesitate to recommend staying here!

  14. Miriam & Mark, Plymouth says:

    Just perfect. We came for a wedding and only wish we could have stayed longer. Warm, comfortable, just the right size with everything you could need. And we had family next door which was so convenient. Thank you for having us.
