This Grade II listed, 19th Century detached stone barn has been lovingly refurbished and can sleep four people in its two bedrooms.

Isallt is a beautifully renovated 19th Century, detached stone barn conversion on a working farm just outside the small village of Llanfair close to Harlech. Able to sleep four people in one twin and one double bedroom, this cottage also contains a family bathroom, a fitted kitchen and a sitting room with a dining table. To the outside of the cottage is an enclosed lawned garden with large front patio and furniture as well as bike storage and off road parking for two cars.

Boasting a wealth of oak beams, trusses and stone walls Isallt is a lovely holiday cottage in a stunning location between the mountains and the beach in North Wales.


A perfect stay.Cottage is perfect and the hot tub brilliant. Such a peaceful quiet place. Loved seeing the farm animals and loved seeing the hens. Had a visit from the farm dog and cat too. Well equipped kitchen and lovely comfortable bed. Local beaches are great too and so a few beautiful sunsets. Owners are lovely. Looking forward to going back again. Highly recommended

Cosy Cottage
We have just returned from a very relaxing week at Isallt cottage. We were really pleased with the accommodation and it had everything we needed for a family of four. There were some dishwashing tablets, tea towels, washing up liquid left in the kitchen and liquid hand soap in both bathrooms. You will need to provide everything else and the bigger supermarkets, such as Tesco, Lidli and Aldi are a 20 minute drive away in Porthmadog. The owners are super friendly and just leave you to get on with your break. The hot tub was an added bonus and much needed after a walk up Snowdon! There is a lovely walk to the beach from the cottage, which took us 15 minutes, across the fields and railway line. The beaches are lovely, soft sand and we saw some amazing sunsets. We recommend the fish and chip's from the Dolphin fish bar in Barmouth. Tony's pizza was okay but nothing special....although the chips were good. We had a meal at the Victoria Inn, which 2 out of 4 of us enjoyed, the 2 being the ones who ordered the burger! We will be booking again!

Stayed in isallt cottage for 4 nights. I was very impressed. Very cosy and very comfortable. Especially loved the the reclining chairs. Everything we needed was available. Apart from food. Be prepared as you will need to travel a little for shopping. If wanting a takeaway Tony's is yummy. My son loved the chickens, they visited us everyday. The hot tub is amazing, totally added bonus at the end of a day running up and down the sand dunes with my son. North Wales is truly a beautiful place and isallt is about a mile from the beach. You can walk to the beach in about 20 minutes. In fact there are beautiful beaches everywhere but you will need a car. Unfortunately a lot of activities were closed due to covid but we didn?t mind. I will be returning again. Just the holiday we needed.

Lovely relaxing stay!
We arrived at Issalt after a long drive and as soon as we entered the property it was cosy and welcoming! Sara came to check on us on our second day which we really appreciated, Pip our dog certainly liked her! She made me, my sister and Pip feel so welcome and made it clear if we needed anything to just ask. We loved staying on the farm, as animal lovers we made the most of the experience and said hello to some brand new lambs! The farm is situated in such a beautiful spot a perfect base for lots of exploring nearby. After lots of walking what more could you want than to sit in a hot tub and admire the view, including a beautiful sunset. The beds were so comfy and the house had everything you could possibly need. We hope to come back! Thanks again for a lovely stay, it was just what we needed!

Absolutely filthy cottage and terrible smell
I informed the owners of my time of arrival, got there at 3pm but the house was very cold. Was 2 degrees outside. The heating started 30 minutes later. The kitchen cabinets were greasy brown and the rug, sofa and carpets were very dirty. I hired the cottage via sykes. The cottage is literally next door to a cows shed and smells so nasty. They also have a chemical room attached with smells of cows feeding products. You couldn?t really enjoy the hot tub or open windows as flies were coming in the cottage and really strong poo smell . No coffee, no milk no hospitality from the owners at all. They were very annoyed I complained about the cleanliness and they didn?t clean anything. Filthy place.
