Fantastic place and welcome
A group of 10 female friends had the barn for the weekend and we had a marvelous time. We were welcomed with welsh cakes an bara brith, tea coffee and fresh flowers! The barn is laid out well with plenty of places for wet coats, walking boots and a comfortable lounge for a large group. We really enjoyed our stay, thank you very much.

Brilliant Barbara's barn for a beautiful birthday bash
14 of us congregated to celebrate my mum's 60th. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The barn was perfect for us: tons of space, well equipped and a great location between Llanberis for Snowdon and Canaerfon for castles and cream teas :) However, what really made our stay was our host, Barbara. Thank you Barbara for being so kind, thoughtful and funny! Our kids adored you...and the rest of us thought you're pretty great too. Barbara runs the barn, farmhouse, livery and a wonderful pottery cafe 'Piggery Pottery' well as painting really beautiful and distinctive paintings in her 'spare time'! We had great fun throwing a pot on Barbara's potter's wheel, and also painting keepsakes which will be a lovely reminder of a perfect holiday. This was such an unexpected bonus when our Great British weather wasn't so great. Can't recommend this highly enough for families and big groups.

Bostin barn in llanberis
Booked 14 family members for the wifes 60th. All three generations catered for. Barbera was friendly and made us all feel welcome. The kids loved the space and the Jacuzzi bath.

A birthday to remember!
Stayed here for my 60th birthday celebrations with my husband, children and grandchildren. We had a fantastic time - the barn was amazing, really spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Tea, coffee, milk, sugar, bara brith and welsh cakes were provided on arrival (a lovely touch) and, as soon as I met Barbara, the owner, I knew we had come to a very special place. Nothing was too much trouble and being able to go into Piggery Pottery for an evening, once it was closed to the public, was absolutely brilliant! All of us came away with something special we had made. We would definitely come back to stay here - a truly amazing holiday. Thank you Barbara!

3 generations....4 dogs...1 surprise
We planned a surprise 70th birthday holiday for our parents. Barbara was ever so helpful with all our requests to ensure we had a successful break. The barn is beautiful. 5 good size bedrooms, all ensuite: room 1 is the downstairs double. room 2 has 2 sets of bunk beds and a nightlight. Room 3 is a twin. Room 4 a double (both upstairs via the staircase in the lounge). Room 5 is accessed via the staircase in the kitchen... the room is huge, with a jacuzzi bath in the ensuite and beautiful views. The workmanship is evident in the barn...quality oak staircases etc. We had an amazing week and would go back...great location to get to lots of places of interest. Food in the local pub is fab...huge portions!! We loved our holiday.
