This luxurious property comes with five en suite bedrooms – each of which has its own television – and a large lounge with a wood-burning stove and is surrounded by rolling countryside and stunning views.

Situated in the grounds of the owner’s 30-acre livery yard is this elegant stone-built barn conversion which comes with eco-friendly solar-powered under floor heating. A comfortable, spacious and airy property, this extensive conversion is able to accommodate up to 14 people. Superbly appointed throughout, the property combines modern elegance with original features blended seamlessly throughout.

There is also a patio garden area, ensuring that visitors can make the most of the warm summer days outside. The onsite Piggery Pottery Workshop provides a fun way to be creative, whilst the whole of the Snowdonia National Park is available from the doorstep. There are a number of great castles in the area, as well as a variety of stunning beaches making this an incredibly diverse spot.


Perfect for 3 generations + 2 dogs
Lots of space for a large group to gather together in the kitchen or living room in comfort, whilst having plenty of areas to spread out rather than being on top of each other (9 adults, 4 young children including a baby). The kitchen is extremely well equipped - there was nothing we couldn't find, including a cafetiere. Small, enclosed, lawned garden - great for the dogs and for drying washing (washing line and pegs provided). The floors are beautiful, polished wood so care is needed with small children and dogs - we had several episodes of human and canine splits in the first couple of days. Thank you, Barbara, for your hospitality and providing the perfect venue for a special birthday x

60th Birthday Surprise
This was our first time staying at the barn and we will definitely be returning! Barbara was very friendly and welcoming, she couldn?t do enough for us. Great location for all the tourist attractions eg Snowdon, Llandudno, Conwy and lots more! The pub was only a short walk away. The Barn was spacious, clean and comfortable, perfect for a large family and dog. Well equipped kitchen with large table to seat the whole family. It was a bonus that all five bedrooms had their own en-suite. Everyone had an enjoyable time. Thank you Barbara x

Excellent,outstanding value
We stayed here with friends in February and could find no fault. The proprietor, Barbara, went more than the extra mile to ensure our stay was beyond expectations despite the winter weather. We have stayed in many locations but this was superb value

Second visit
This is the second year we have stayed at this venue with a group of mates. Last year was a bit of a wash out for me as I had to spend a few hours in Bangor A&E having a broken wrist fixed and subsequently had to cut short my stay by one night. This year we booked the other house ?the Barn? and this was a pleasant surprise, very modern, nice big kitchen and living room. All of the bedrooms were a good size too. The pub up the road did a smashing meal on Sat night. Barbara the owner was a star, I asked her where the nearest local shop was as we had forgot to bring some butter/marg for breakfast and she shared what she had with us. The facilities are great plenty for a bog party would highly recommend. The pottery is an added bonus.

50th birthday celebrations
On arrival this property looks lovely However.... this house needs a deep clean and then regularly a good clean in between guests. The lounge area is bright & spacious but the couches are filthy under the cushions the floors are dirty nothing had been moved and cleaned the kids socks were filthy after walking around. The bunk bed room is very dirty under the bunk bed... lots & lots of dust & dirt and unfortunately this was the case in every bedroom... all the bathrooms were not clean lots of grouting issues the shower heads are rusty just generally uncared for ... the televisions in the bedrooms mostly dont work but to be honest The size of the are not worth having anyway ... the bedside lamps were dirty and if you like to read before going to sleep they were neither use nor ornament. Big issue with the water temperature when we rang to report it we were told we all couldn?t take a shower at the same time so getting up & ready for the day wasn?t great!!! Some off us just had to grin and bear a cold shower so the kids could have the warm ones !!!!!! Overall this property could be fantastic as in great location and the pottery was fabulous the kids really enjoyed that .... such a shame about the overall cleanliness.... we only stayed for 3 nights so reporting the issues we had could never of been resolved within this time limit. The owner Barbara was a bice lady the welsh cakes flowers milk & tea were a lovely touch on arrival but personally I would of forgone this welcome to have stayed in a clean house sorry but unless the issues above were rectified we most definitely won?t return
