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