    “The barn conversion was perfect for our large group of 10 adults and 3 dogs.”

    Downstairs is so spacious - at one end of the building is a lovely snug area that easily seated 8 people and had a log burner which heated the whole of the downstairs. The large kitchen was fully equipped with everything for cooking meals and the large table seated all of us for breakfasts.

    Downstairs is so spacious - at one end of the building is a lovely snug area that easily seated 8 people and had a log burner which heated the whole of the downstairs. The large kitchen was fully equipped with everything for cooking meals and the large table seated all of us for breakfasts. At the other end of the building is the fantastic living room/dining room with 3 large settees and 2 chairs so plenty of space for everyone. The dining table was great for gathering around for our evening meal. Upstairs the 5 bedrooms were more than adequate for our group - 2 were ensuite and the main bathroom had a lovely roll top bath and large walk in shower. The barn is located in a very remote area at the end of a 2 mile single track lane. This suited us perfectly as it was lovely to get away from everything and be surrounded by beautiful countryside. The views were stunning and it was great to sit in the hot tub and and look across at the hills and relax. We walked the 2 miles back to the village and enjoyed a couple of hours in The New Inn where we were welcomed by the locals and had a sing along. I will definitely book again.

About the location

LLANGYNOG

Bala 13 miles.

The pleasant village of Llangynog lies in breathtaking countryside amidst the beautiful Berwyn Mountains and surrounding wooded hills and valleys. The area has a history of lead, silver and slate mining dating back to the 17th Century but today it is a renowned location for climbing, birdwatching, walking and cycling, with famous mountain bike trails near Dolgellau, and a mountain bike centre at Llandegla. Llangynog boasts two pubs, both of which serve good food and are perfect to relax in after an exciting day out, plus on the outskirts of the village is a down hill mountain bike centre. There is also an off road motorbike experience, which is set on a 1500 acre site further up the valley which needs to be booked in advance. Enjoy Lake Bala, a wonderful beauty spot, with excellent fishing, a variety of water sports including white water rafting and a lakeside steam railway, or visit Lake Vyrnwy, which has an RSPB centre, bike hire and a sculpture park. Also within easy reach is Llanrhaeadr Waterfall, the tallest single drop waterfall in England and Wales. This is a beautiful part of the country and is perfect for touring the rest of North and Mid Wales and even Shropshire.
