Type: Farm Stay, Featured Holiday Cottages, Hot Tub, Internet | WiFi, Near Beach
This romantic one bedroom barn conversion near Barmouth commands stunning sea views over the Cambrian bay coastline. A private patio and garden with a wood burning hot tub provides the perfect platform from which to enjoy the surrounding countryside while a tastefully furnished interior affords all the convenience of a modern holiday cottage.
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.

Cot and High Chair No
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!
