Property code: DY031

Detached barn conversion offering pleasant accommodation for couples and small groups just 3 miles from beautiful Aberdyfi with its beach, harbour and multiple restaurants.

Escape to the southern tip of Snowdonia National Park and embrace a holiday characterised by long rambles, spectacular views and exciting opportunities for activities on land and in the water. This attractive stone barn sleeps four and is located just 3 miles from Aberdyfi, a delightful seaside village popular amongst families and couples alike. Whether you are lured by the excellent walks where the mountains meet the sea at the mouth of the River Dyfi or the excitement of the beach, there really is something for everyone here. For the white-knuckle thrill-seekers, there are water sports galore including windsurfing, sailing and paddleboarding, but you’ll also be able to adopt a quieter pace and tee off at the 18-hole championship golf course if you prefer.

Climb up the steps and cross the threshold, stepping through the stone exterior ready to unwind. You’ll discover a spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with high vaulted ceilings and timber beams. Slate tiling underfoot and glimpses of exposed stonework, together with the wood burner, create a cosy ambience for snuggling up on the sofas. Watch your favourite films on the TV or break open a pack of cards for some leisurely entertainment before supper. The kitchen area has an electric oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher, microwave and a fridge/freezer, and there’s a compact dining table for feasting together. In terms of practicality, the utility room is equipped with some useful drying space alongside a washer/dryer. There is a shower room with a walk-in shower and WC, and there is a separate WC too. The two bedrooms are a pleasant sight when you are weary from your day - the first is a homely and inviting ground-floor bedroom with a double bed, bedroom furniture and an oak dressing table. Accessed via a set of stairs, the second bedroom is mezzanine-style with two small 2ft 6” beds, built-in storage and bedroom furniture, as well as a TV for a bonus treat. Please take care when choosing beds, one of the twin beds is positioned next to the bannister that is open to the stairs.

Outside, the garden is a delightful spot to sip your first coffee of the day whilst you admire the mature trees and shrubs. The ornamental pond adds an extra sense of relaxation, and you may be lucky enough to see some of the resident wildlife flitting across it. Off-road parking is available for two cars.

Lovely property with nice garden, slightly spoilt by the nearness to a busy road.

Beautiful cottage, with everything we could have needed and more! We arrived in the dark and it was a joy to wake up to such a stunning view. We were very sad to leave and will definitely be back!

The cottage is tastefully decorated and has a pretty garden. It has lovely views but is set back from a busy road.

Very comfortable, warm and spacious cottage. Comfy beds and lounge seating. It has a well appointed shower room and an additional WC and basin in the Utility room. There are a few stone steps up to the entrance We will definitely book again.
