Set below a wooded hillside, this pretty cottage features exposed beams, stone walls and oak and slate floors as well as comfortable and elegant accommodation for up to 10 guests.

This wonderful semi-detached, stone-built barn conversion is set in an acre of grounds next to the owner's farmhouse just two miles from the town of Harlech – a World Heritage Listed Site. Of the four bedrooms two are en suite, and with a spacious open-plan living area and well-equipped kitchen, this property offers a high standard of accommodation. Outside, there are wonderful views of the castle and Snowdonia Mountain Range from the garden, making it a spectacular place for al fresco dining.

The surrounding area also offers some of the most picturesque walks in the UK.


Well appointed cottage for Family holiday
My Son actually found this cottage on the internet. It comprised of 4 double bedrooms, and an open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge. The welcome pack was the best yet! Bread, butter, milk, tea bags, biscuits and 2 bottles of wine chilling in the wine cooler. The cottage was extremely clean and looked as if it was fairly new. Surprising to find that it had been made into cottages in 2007/8. There were 6 adults and 3 children under 5 with plenty of space for all. Outside was a large garden where the children could play safely and have a good run around. A box containing balls, tennis rackets, badminton rackets and swingball were free to use. Also a modern bbq for use if needed. If there was a downside it was the crows pecking at the windows at 4am and 6am. Please do not let it put you off as the owner was in the process of putting fine meshing over the windows which should stop them. We would have no issue at all in recommending this cottage to all.

Top class rental at a reasonable price.
Just back from a weeks` stay at this cottage. Perfect hosts and top class accommodation. Harlech castle on one side and the mountains of Snowdonia on the other. Close to Porthmadog, Criccieth etc. This is a `must` place to stay.

An absolute gem of a property
Having had a fair number of dissapiontments regarding holiday rentals in the past, our stay at Glasfryn Barn has restored our belief that there are still some excellent rental properties out there. What sets Glasfryn apart are the owners. Peter and Lorraine have poured there heart and sole into this property. It is so well looked after, spotlessly clean. They provide a welcome pack that includes all the basics but also little extras such as a bag of ice in the freezer, drinking straws for the little ones, hand soap on all sinks, rubbish bags etc, etc. Even their bins are spotless, I have never seen a recycling set up like it!! Glasfryn is very well located, being so close to Harlech. There is so much to do around the area. Well done Peter and Lorraine and thanks again for providing our family of 10 with an excellent week away in Wales.

Glasfryn Barn is an excellent property, with a great garden for the children to play in. Very very well furnished and very clean and well maintained. Great location.
Mr Westall

Glasfryn Barn was a fantastic base for our family holiday. It is spacious and superbly decorated with everything we needed for the three generations of our family. There were beautiful all round views of the Welsh countryside, including Harlech Castle and plenty of places to visit within a short car journey.
