    Lots of kitchen equipment, plenty of fridge/freezer storage and games and stuff for the kids! Two TV's good signal, WiFi and EE phone signal very good! Would definitely recommend, and would use this place again! Couple of issues which we communicated to the owners, but all in all a lovely Christmas week was enjoyed by all.

    They were very informative, showing us around the property and explaining everything. The farmhouse itself we found to be full of character and charm. We had everything we needed, yes there are one or two things that could do with upgrading, but that's all part of it. We were warm comfortable, and it is very dog freindly. An abundance of bathrooms and bedrooms to choose from,comfortable seating areas, we had the wood burner on in the formal dining room,which was so cosy. We will book again. All in all we all had a wonderful week,so thank you

    Stunning scenery all around and the male members did a couple of strenuous walks from the house. They also loved being in the Mach Loop, which didn't disappoint! My only criticism is the house needs a little TLC.

  • "Bathrooms could do with updating and refurbishment."

    More attention needed for issues like spare bulbs, cooker hood and microwave. Plenty of space for large group. Comfort of communal area was great. Location fantastic. Loved the jets! Had a great family holiday.

    We appreciate your feedback and are delighted to hear that you had a pleasant stay. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the oven hood and will ensure to address it promptly on Saturday during the changeover. We understand that the microwave can be a bit tricky to use, being a combination one, and have taken note of this for future guests and will look to replace it. We do keep spare bulbs in a drawer on one of the tables. We are always available to assist you in any way possible, and please don't hesitate to reach out to us if you require any help. Thank you again for your valuable feedback. Property Owner

  • "Lovely place, full of a lot of character and plenty of room."

    We had a great time making use of the hot-tub and the outside space as the weather was beautiful. As we were a large group, having multiple large communal spaces was great, as we could separate out or all fit into the same room together. It was a very peaceful stay, although also great to watch planes flying down the valley. As well as making use of the lovely house, we also used it as a base to explore the local area, which has lots of lovely walks. The owners were incredibly friendly, helpful and accommodating!

  • "We really really loved the cottage, it was spacious and full of character."

    When we arrived the owners were lovely and the cottage was clean to a high standard. The hot tub was new and was great. There are some things that would improve guests stays. More comfortable mattresses on the beds and cushions on the chairs and bench around the kitchen table. There was no barbecue to cook outside and the house really lacked garden furniture in both lower and upper gardens. The upper gardens had great views and it would have been nice to have sat up there in the early mornings and evenings.

    Thank you for providing feedback for Ysgubor, we do appreciate it and take all feedback seriously. Thank you for your kind words about the cottage. We are glad you enjoyed it as much as we do. We do have cushions on the kitchen chairs and there is ample seating outside for all parts of the garden, we will look to provide some more seating at the top of the garden as mentioned. Because of recent heat waves, the BBQ is now available on request only, so holiday makers can be made aware of the fire risk. Thank you again for your feedback. Property Owner

    6 adults 4 kids and a cavapoo had a great week in the October half term. The hot tub was an absolute winner the wood burners made it so cosy. The inside space meant that everyone could do their own thing and always find a quiet corner. The owners Mr and Mrs Evans were lovely they were so very welcoming and certainly made you feel at home from the start. Outside the views are spectacular and whether you are an ardent hiker or just going for a walk with the kids there are some great places to explore. The walk into Dinas Mawddwy was lovely on the forest path about 1.5 miles There you have a pub a post office and a beautiful little coffee and gift shop which sells delicious cakes and well worth a visit. Even before the end of the holiday we were planning a return visit next spring.

Hot tub was great and the gardens to the cottage were not only beautiful but perfect for our 3 dogs. As a group of 11 and 3 dogs there was plenty of space for us all. I loved that each bathroom had a different amenity, kids showered in a different bathroom each night! So many kitchen utilities and log fires stocked up ready on arrival.

    Mr and Mrs Evans were so friendly, very warm and welcoming with lots of advice on where to walk locally. The location was stunning and the cottage very quiet. Hot tub excellent, very private and sheltered from any wind. We couldn’t have wished for a better cottage, spotlessly clean for such an old place, and full of character. If you like hill walking, you are spoilt for choice. We would recommend walking up the forestry track behind the cottage to Glasgwm, and the walk up Foel Dinas via the stunning Maesglase valley opposite the cottage. And Camlan is very much worth a visit

    The views with breathtaking and the accommodation itself was great. However a couple of things could be approved on. A couple of the amenities such as the hot tub, music player and furnishing need updating a bit. The bed in the master bedroom was pretty uncomfy as well.

There's a Co-op in Dogellau which is about a 15 minute drive away so was easy to stock up on food. We were on a mountain biking holiday and there was a large games room for us to put our bikes in and loads of room outside for bike maintenance and all of our vehicles. The bottom of the Red Bull hard line is a few hundred meters away from the cottage so that was amazing to look at (but well out of our league).

The property

Tucked away on the outskirts of the idyllic village of Dinas Mawddwy, Gwynedd, is this stunning five-bedroom farmhouse Ysgubor.

Enjoying a superb location within the breath-taking Snowdonia National Park, situated on a 500-acre hill working organic farm and surrounded by awe-inspiring mountain scenery, Ysgubor is a fantastic dog-friendly choice for couples, friends and families to escape to.

The interior boasts a wealth of character and original features, including oak beams, exposed stonework, an inglenook fireplace and slate flagged floors, it is hard not to feel right at home!

The property benefits from several off-road parking spaces, an enclosed rear garden where you can fire up the barbecue and dine alfresco with a mountain backdrop, and an enclosed front garden with furniture and bubbling hot tub, perfect for sinking back among the bubbles with a panoramic view!

On the ground floor, the chef of the group will have all they need to conjure up delicious feasts in the fully-equipped kitchen, ready to enjoy at the dining table in front of the woodburning stove as you toast to a memorable getaway.

After dinner, curl up with a good book in the snug for two, enjoy relaxing with loved ones in the large sitting room in front of a much-loved film on the TV, as your pooches snuggle up in front of the crackling woodburning stove, or head through to the games room to enjoy a game of pool.

Completing the ground floor is a lovely double bedroom served by a shower room, ideal for those with limited mobility.

Head upstairs, where you can wash away the day’s adventures in one of two beautiful bathrooms, before discovering four further bedrooms, a king-size four poster with en-suite bathroom, a double, a king-size, and a family room with three singles.

Wander through the village, where you can treat your loved ones to a meal out at Y Llew Coch or the Buckley Arms, and stock up on fresh produce at the Camlan Garden Centre, Farm Shop and Café.

From your new home from home, you can also take advantage of access to the owner’s own private mountains, Graig Wen and Gribyn, both over 2000', where the Red Bull Hardline mountain bike event is held annually, with the rest of Snowdonia beyond, making it a haven for keen walkers, mountain bikers and birdwatchers.

Continue onto Dolgellau, where you can picnic in the picturesque park, sample fresh tapas at Tafarn Y Gader, South Asian delights at Lemon Grass, and hearty pub fare at the Stag Inn, or explore the outskirts of the town where you will find the renowned Mawddach Trail.

From here, you can easily access Barmouth, home to the Panorama Walk, the stunning Barmouth Beach, the welcoming eateries of The Lobster Pot, The Bank Restaurant, and Bistro Bermo, and the Dragon Theatre.

The owner, who lives nearby and occasionally occupies a small annexe to the left of the holiday property, is always ready to help, and at the end of an exciting day, enjoy the surrounding mountain scenery as you relax.

Explore the very best of North Wales at Ysgubor.
