Comprising of split level accommodation, this cottage is snug and welcoming using a subtle blend of character features and modern facilities to create a warm and well-serviced base from which to explore the region.

Originally built as a grain store in the 19th Century, this detached property now offers accommodation for groups of up to four people. It is set in an enviable location, offering views of the sea and Mount Cader Idris. The grounds belong to the owner, although there is a private area of garden reserved for visitors with garden furniture and a barbecue for the sunny summer months. Inside, the accommodation is arranged over levels and the renovation has retained original features such as exposed beams throughout the property. For the colder seasons, the cottage is served by central-heating and a coal-effect fire in the sitting-room. With easy access to picturesque walks, this property is a tranquil base for a small group of friends or a family.


Disappointing Welsh holiday
The Grain Store is in a nice quiet location with a beautiful view of the sea and Cader Idris in the distance. . Clean and comfortable, the kitchen is more than adequately supplied with equipment. However, after a journey of over 200miles a ?welcome? tray, set with tea etc. would have been appreciated, such as we have found in other holiday cottages. The property was advertised as ?split-level? so a couple of steps between rooms was expected. However the photos of the property from outside as well as interior shots gave no indication of the 7 steep stairs to get from the kitchen & bathroom to the living room, which proved rather a nuisance to a couple of 80yr olds. A mirror in the second bedroom is needed. The shops were advertised as 15mins walk away - but no mention was made that it involved walking along a busy main road with no footpath [unless there is another way of which we were unaware] and the return journey is uphill! Very little local information available in the cottage [most up-to-date promotional leaflet was dated 2014 - most were dated 2009 or before, although we left some current ones for the next visitors ]. WiFi available but rather erratic.

We particularly liked the friendly reception, the location and view.
Mr Yates

The cottage was a little quirky, having been a farm building conversion, but had everything we needed for a super holiday experience. It was in a lovely quiet spot, within walking distance to Abersoch. One of the better places we have stayed at.
Mrs Kenyon

We liked the cottage and where it was situated. We had lovely views. The owner was very friendly and made us very welcome.
Mrs Mason

A quiet cottage with beautiful views of the bay and sea. It was well equipped.
