Luxury One Bedroom Cottage on a Working Farm | Stabal-Byrdir

This luxury one bedroom studio cottage on a working farm combines comfortable accommodation with the rural charm of country life. A private patio and lawn has uninterrupted views across the farm down towards the sea and the distant flash of Bardsey lighthouse. Internally, modern facilities sit along side some of the original features of this converted stable. The convenience of modern living with echoes of the past.

Wales Coastal Path at Harlech Beach

A stone step from the patio leads guests into an open plan living area. Tall vaulted ceilings and whitewashed walls give a great sense of light and space. Exposed stone around the original windows and a hardwood floor provides that feeling of character and quality. To the right of the room the living area includes a luxurious leather sofa which sits in front of a lovely living flame fire mounted on a welsh slate hearth.

To the left a modern fitted kitchen includes a combination oven, electric hob and dishwasher. A traditional welsh dresser sits along side the kitchen housing the blue china that is so popular in so many welsh homes. A small dining table and chairs sits in front of a deep set window with that fantastic sea view.

The style and character of the living room continues through into the bedroom. Again, deep set windows provide some great views in the morning when you throw the curtains open. A comfortable super king sized bed and general peace and tranquility ensures a good nights sleep. The adjoining en-suite bathroom is immaculately decorated and houses a simple white bathroom suite including a large shower cubicle with power shower.

Stabal-Byrdir is one of three cottages set within an old stable block on the farm but a well thought out layout ensures each cottage has its own private access and garden area. Stabal-Byrdir’s garden, arguably, having the best view of the three. There are lots of walking routes right from your front door and some wonderful sandy beaches just over a mile away.

The farm itself is located a mile above the village of Dyffryn Ardudwy. There are two pubs in the village both serving food and two small cafes. There is also a very good butchers, Spar shop, post office and garage so all the essentials are covered. For a wider range of shops and restaurants guests might want to travel 5 miles south to the popular seaside town of Barmouth. 5 miles to the north is the historic castle town of Harlech. The larger towns of Porthmadog and Dolgellau are 30 mins away to the North and South respectively.

Snowdonia is fast becoming a hot spot for adventure activities. Adrenaline fueled days out at the Tryweryn White Water, Zip World and Coed Y Brenin mountain biking centre. But more traditional pastimes continue to be popular. A visit to Portmeirion village is recommended as is a trip on the Welsh Highland Railway or a day visiting the pet farm at Llanystumdwy.

    The year 2020 will go down in most people’s memory for all the wrong reasons Ours included.
    But one thing we will be able to remember with a big smile on our face is our stay at Dyffryn Ardudwy and STABAL-BYRDIR in particular, it really was our ray of sunshine in a somewhat dull and dismal year, very peaceful warm and cosy with a much appreciated welcome pack (yes the lemon drizzle cake was delicious).
    Loved the visits from the chickens, ducks and not forgetting the dogs of course, We were lucky enough to see some wonderful sunsets and the views around the area are stunning.
    We had read the glowing reviews of this property and can honestly say they are well deserved, we can’t wait to return at sometime in the future, when, hopefully all this craziness Will be no more.
    Thank you so much for bringing a little bit of sunshine into our year.

    In these difficult and uncertain times we’re all living in, there has never been a greater need for a beautiful, peaceful and isolated location to spend a few days resting and getting away from it all. So we booked our third visit to Stabal-Byrdir, and after a tough year without any sort of break, we were more than ready for a holiday, and we loved every minute of it. We explored some of the surrounding countryside and were rewarded with spectacular views of the sea and mountains. The cottage was bright, clean and cosy, and we enjoyed the company of the various animals throughout our stay! Thank you also for the farm eggs, home-made cake and crisps – all delicious and very much appreciated. We already can’t wait to be back again very soon!

  4. Mandy Cowan says:

    A truly delightful cottage with everything we needed and a wonderful view. It felt so peaceful and along with other reviews we loved being visited by the chicks and ducks!! Highly recommended.

  5. Glyn Jones says:

    Enjoyed a 5 night stay in this very well kept, warm cosy cottage.
    A good base for exploring this area which was also a good place to return to when the weather is typically British.
    First stay here but will return.

  6. Donna and Gary James says:

    This was our second stay in Stabal-Byrdir, and we loved it just as much as the first time. In fact on both occasions we were blessed with glorious sunshine, so we used the opportunity this time to explore the surroundings – we very nearly made it to the top of Moelfre! The cottage is so cosy and full of light – a few more basic kitchen utensils would have been nice (as we like to do our own cooking), but apart from that we were very comfortable. The fresh eggs and Welsh-made crisps were a nice touch, and the homemade lemon drizzle cake was to die for! We also loved the frequent visits by the dogs, cat, chickens and ducks… Overall a wonderful idyllic escape from the rigours of modern life, so thank you very much!

  7. Ann Firth says:

    The cottage is a lovely cosy haven and I really appreciated the care that went into making it a home from home. Beautiful setting and the cake lived up to expectations! I would just like to mention that the shower door needs attention as it was so stiff I thought if I shut it I wouldn’t be able to get out!

  8. Karen and Nick says:

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Stabal Byrdyr. Cottage is perfect for two, immaculately clean and everything thought of. We were blessed with the weather and enjoyed fantastic views, across the fields to the sea, from the terrace. Such a great spot to explore from. Louise and Gwion are so friendly and helpful and we just loved being greeted by the welcome party – the ducks, chooks and dogs – when we returned home each evening! We will definitely be returning. Dioni really stands out from the herd as far as holiday cottages go.

  9. Sue & Steve Huggins says:

    A really enjoyable stay. Very relaxing and ideal for two people. Great views and lucky with some good weather. Well placed to visit North Wales. A visit from the chickens is amusing just don’t be fooled by there looks as I am sure they would share the cottage with you. Highly recommend this cottage if you want peace and quiet. Will be back for another visit.
