  • "We had a fabulous week at Peta's beautiful cottage, everything we needed was there and more besides, thoughtful touches everywhere, right down to providing some vegan biscuits for us :) We were lucky enough to have some sunny days so were able to take advantage of the lovely outdoor space too."

    Such a treat to wake to the sound of horses and sheep rather than traffic! Highly recommended for a relaxing break

    The barn is perfect for a family getaway. Everyone loved it - adult and children alike. Cosy and warm despite all the snow and ice outside. We're all feeling super festive now. Thanks do much Peta. Already looking forward to Christmas 2023!

  • "We loved this place!"

    It is so special ! From the moment we walked in, we felt at home, you can tell Peta has put a lot of work into providing the best experience at Summer Bees barn. Fantastic hot water, big spacious well equipped kitchen, comfy beds and a lovely outdoor seating area. She was very welcoming and helpful in providing information to the local area, a real joy to chat to ! We discovered lots of local bays, long sandy beaches, bird spotting, Uchmymydd for a fantastic view to Bardsey Island. Nant Gwrtheyrn and Plas Y Rhiw are also well worth a visit. The area is really beautiful and there is so much to do ! We can't wait to come back ! Highly recommended.

  • "This property worked so well for us as a family - grandparents, parents and grandchildren."

    The grandchildren had the space, the owners' horses almost in the garden, the sheltered bay with a gentle tide and locality to explore (lots of beaches), including the local mountain and ancient summit fort. Internally we had the space to be comfortable with a well served kitchen/diner, lounge, bedrooms and bathrooms. Llyn offers plenty of quiet space, sheltered beaches and coastal walks, villages with great hospitality and shops as required. Travel to Porthmadog, Caernarfon and Snowdonia was easy - views from Yr Wydffa (Snowdon) summit are not guaranteed. All in all good value for many and a great week. Highly recommended for a family holiday.

    The barn is lovely as are the grounds and the kids loved the horses. The owner Peta lives close by and made sure we had everything we needed and provided local knowledge of beaches and sites to visit. Kids especially loved helping feed the horses and even had a ride in a tractor. Will be back next year :)

Menai office passed on the message of our son's left behind sound machine, however Henry has said he'd rather have a new one as that one is 'a bit old'!! But thankyou for informing us and thankyou for a marvellous stay.

  • "It was excellent, but we thought that there were one or two kitchen utensils that would have helped, a bread knife, comes to mind."

    Was the BBQ tray meant to be used by us? We thought the draining board are could have been better. but overall we were very impressed.

    Thank you for your kind feedback, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. I will certainly check for a bread knife and thank you for bringing this to our attention. The BBQs are for our guests use as are the games & other items. We hope to welcome you back to Summer Bee Barns again soon. Peta & family Property Owner

    We have LOVED the barns cozy feel, traditional yet modern! Great walk to Ty Coch Inn via the coastal path. Sunday lunch at Whitehall, crabbing, icecream, beach walks & a final day in Abersoch. So much to do on your doorstep here. It has been a fabulous weekend-highly recommend to friends and family-we will be back!

The property

Sitting on the coast in the delightful town of Nefyn, North Wales is the charming, detached barn conversion of Bwthyn Gwenyn Yr Haf (Summer Bee Barns).

The perfect base for a family or group of six's coastal getaway, this lovely property rests moments away from Nefyn's stunning beach, as well as, the Wales Coastal Path and the rest of the Llyn Peninsula's sights!

After parking in one of the two allocated parking spaces, pop your belongings in the boot room, before exploring what this fabulous holiday home has to offer.

The kitchen/diner is a truly fabulous spot, thanks to its shaker-style cabinetry and slate flooring; the space boasts top-notch appliances, including double electric ovens and an American-style fridge/freezer, so the designated chef is well-catered to here!

After the foodie of the group has fixed up delectable dishes, tuck into them at the nearby dining space, or take them out into the garden to enjoy.

As the day draws on, settle down in the sitting room, where the Smart TV will keep you entertained, and an electric effect log burner warms you up.

When night falls, choose between one of the three fabulous bedrooms to rest in, with two of these being a double and a twin on the ground floor, and the latter comprising a mezzanine king-size with Velux-style windows and a superb en-suite shower room.

Concluding the property's interior is a fabulous, ground-floor bathroom, where a freestanding bath offers soothing soaks, and a walk-in shower offers invigorating rinses for you to savour before exploring the local area.

Venture into Nefyn, where you can grab essentials for a picnic from the convenience store and take it down to the beach for a day packed with sun and sand; alternatively, you can visit the local brewery and enjoy a well-deserved pint!

Why not spend some time in Morfa Nefyn, a lovely village with access to the Porthdinllaen headland, another beach, as well as, a brilliant championship golf course?

Travel further afield to Abersoch for even more fun in the sun, thanks to its stunning beaches and variety of small boutique shops, as well as a golf course and the surfing and sailing opportunities.

Pwllheli and Criccieth are within easy reach, with yet another golf course available in Pwllheli, whilst Porthmadog, Portmeirion and Bangor are all a little further afield and offer even more to see and do!

A blissful break awaits you at Bwthyn Gwenyn Yr Haf (Summer Bee Barns).
