Romantic One Bedroom Barn Conversion Near Barmouth | Melin-Byrdir

A stone step leads us through a glass doorway. A living flame gas fire sits on a welsh slate hearth to your right. A luxurious leather sofa sits to your left (don’t ask how we got the sofa through the narrow entrance). An impressive stone opening reaching from floor to ceiling takes us into a small dining area. The circular dining table and chairs must have one of the best views in Wales.

Turning back into the main living area we circle the central staircase into the kitchen area. The kitchen is small but well equipped and includes a combination oven, grill and microwave along with an electric hob, fridge and dishwasher. An adjacent ground floor bathroom has a modern white bathroom suite with power shower.

As steep wooden staircase leads us up into the vaulted ceiling of the barn. The stairway has an alternating step design so may not suit guests with mobility problems. The original and exposed oak beams of the barn flank a low slung king sized bed. White Egyptian cotton sheets and an uninterrupted view of the setting sun ensures a comfortable and romantic end to your day.

A large shared car park with bike storage facilities is exited via a private pathway that leads down to a beautiful secluded garden. A large patio with outdoor table and chairs eventually gives way to an expanse of lawn with uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. Neighbouring farm animals are a popular distraction but guests should make the effort to explore the surrounding countryside either by foot or in the car.

There are lots of walks that can be enjoyed from the farm. There are maps and guides available in the cottage. Guests can wonder up to the rugged Rhinog Mountains or meander down through the village, which is about a mile from the farm, then onto the miles of sandy beaches that we have in this part of North Wales.

The village provides all the basic needs for our guests. There’s a small grocery store, an excellent butchers, a post office, a garage, cafés and a pub serving food. If you want more choice, a 15-minute journey in the car will take you to the bustling seaside town of Barmouth. A 15-minute drive to the north will take you to the renowned castle town of Harlech. Both towns have a slightly larger selection of shops, cafes and restaurants.

This part of north wales is of course famous for outdoor activities. You can be zip lining at 100mph eighty feet above the ground in the morning and exploring historic slate caverns one mile below ground in the afternoon. Spend one-day white water rafting down the fierce Tryweryn River and the next climbing up the steep slopes of Snowdon. You might prefer to throw yourself down the testing mountain biking trails of Coed Y Brenin or you might prefer a more relaxing day riding the narrow gauge Ffestiniog Steam train up to Tan Y Bwlch. The worlds your lobster here in Snowdonia!

    Fantastic cottage Fantastic location we had a great relaxing time. listening to Pauline the pig snoring the unexpected visits from the dogs and the hens.
    The lemon drizzle cake was amazing (wife ate most of it)
    I’m sure we will return for another visit

  2. David & Kate Porter says:

    My wife and I needed a break, a rest, to get away from it all, peace and quiet, time out from a busy demanding world – and we certainly got that! We had a lovely week in Melin-Byrdir, the cottage was well equipped, warm and comfortable. we were able to walk directly from the door over the hills and visits to Harlech and surrounding areas with castles and amazing beaches made our trip truly memorable. PLUS we enjoyed amazing weather (first week of march) so its not true that it always rains in Wales – we will return.

    1. Hannah says:

      What a fabulous relaxing mini break. Thank you Louise for making me and and my partner feel so welcomed. Enjoyed the two night stay in this delightful Melin cottage as well as enjoying being absolutely away from norm. Thanks again we will return.

  3. Jordan says:

    The perfect weekend away! Would definitely return again in the future!

  4. Hannah and Ellis says:

    Melin is a cosy cottage equipped with everything you will need for a splendid holiday. My partner and I had a lovely time here, so lovely in fact we didn’t want to leave and extended our stay by another two nights.
    The area is beautiful with the cottage nestled between the southern snowdonia mountain ranges and the sea. It’s idyllic location is perfect for anyone wishing to explore North West Wales.
    Having a hot tub was a bonus and we took advantage of this on our first night. In winter I would recommend heating the hot tub for a least 6hrs before use.
    Gwion, Louise and their family made us feel very welcome.
    We miss Pauline the pig with her contended snores and the other animals which made our stay perfect. Thank you!

  5. Melissa Sanchez says:

    Thank you for a fantastic stay, very relaxing and cosy! The farm animals were a delightful touch.

    I would highly recommend this place.


  6. Kornelia says:

    Thank you so much for another relaxing, refreshing stay at Byrdir. Going to bed all warmed up and cosy after a star gazing soak in the hot tub and waking up to snoring grunts of Pauline – simply priceless! Perfect Pre Christmas get-away!

  7. Julian says:

    Such a beautiful place to stay, modern, cosy and stunning views for a romantic weekend away. The local animals (chickens, ducks, dogs, cat and Pauline the pig) were super friendly and an absolute delight. We also were lucky enough to spot a few birds of prey in the surrounding country side.
    The hot tub was a great touch (though it took some 6 hours to get it going in the November cold) but the effort was worth it to sit with some bubbles and gaze at the moon.
    Food-wise, I’d recommend the Victoria Inn on the way over to Harlech – the food and service were great.
