Beautiful location with a lovely warm welcome.. The barn offers a very relaxing hoilday and I will be returning soon.
Mrs Bowtle
May 2019
We received such a warm welcome from the owners with a thorough tour of the property.. With two little boys in our party a safe garden, with lots of space and games provided, was a boon. The kitchen was home from home. We had a great time at Llanfair slate caverns and farm park and Harlech castle. Even Portmeirion had something for everyone (from four to eighty years) and the sun shone making it a magical place. In spite of mixed weather we managed a beach trip and paddling in the sea. Thank you, Lorraine and Peter, for a super week. Bowtle and Cole Families

We were celebrating my 60th birthday.. The barn was so lovely, a great size for 6 adults and 4 children. Lorraine & Peter the owners made us feel so welcome. It was a relaxing break in lovely surroundings.

The price, The location, the facilities, the weather, the views... The list can go on... The clear instructions were step by step. Thank you for making our family holiday 100 percent exceptional.

The cottage and the owners were absolutely fantastic it exceeded our expectations the best place i been.. The hosts were great we made the arrangements to collect the keys and was greeted by Lorraine who shook everyone's hand and introduced herself and then showed us round the cottage and even left us a welcome basket with wine,tea,coffee etc inside. We really felt welcome and her husband when he saw us would have a conversation with all of us. The views were amazing and the places we went to were great, i would recommend King Arthur's Labyrinth and also go into the caves they have there. The views on Snowdonia are amazing well worth going to. Overall fantastic place to go and Glasfryn Barn i would highly recommend to stay at.

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.
Mr Pycroft
June 2018
Highly recommended! Glasfryn Barn is a wonderful holiday cottage, built and kept to a high standard. We were 2 five-year olds, 2 parents, 1 aunt and 2 grandparents. The Barn is a great place for a family gathering. It's spacious indoors and out (and they even provide plenty of indoor and outdoor games). Peter and Lorraine are very welcoming and helpful. And to cap it all, after we'd checked out on our last day, we'd left the girls' backpacks behind. After finding them, Peter tracked us to a café in Harlech to return them to us!
Mr Sutherland
June 2018
Beautiful cottage and very caring hosts..
June 2018
Glasfryn Barn is in a wonderful location.. It's great for Snowdonia and the Coast around Cardigan Bay. The Barn is incredibly well appointed. Lorraine and Peter have forgotten nothing. It was a lovely touch to receive a welcome pack, including tea, coffee, juice, bread, spread and all the cleaning products you need. The photos give you an idea of what you are going to get but don't do the barn full justice. We had a wonderful time and would recommend Glasfryn Barn wholeheartedly.

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.
Geoffrey D
February 2018
Glasfryn Barn is a well appointed, luxurious property in a great location.. It has everything you could possibly need for a long or short stay. It easily accommodates 10 people. The photos on the web site look good, but it far exceeded our expectations. Lorraine and Peter are excellent hosts, and nothing is too much trouble, and they provided lots of extra items to make our stay special. We would have no hesitation in booking Glasfryn Barn again.
Mr Jones
September 2017
The cottage was lovely, the welcome very friendly.. We had a lovely week, thank you.
August 2017
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.
August 2017
The cottage was superb.. Welcome pack was so thoughtful. Area was so peaceful yet within easy reach of facilities. We had a wonderful family holiday and would highly recommend the cottage.
Mrs Gregson

Mr Morris

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.
June 2016
Absolutely wonderful and perfect place. We had such an amazing time , so much great attention to detail, heaven on earth .

Glasfryn Barn is a fantastic cottage. Overall outstanding accommodation, and will return.
October 2015
Three generations of us stayed and it was perfect for us all. Great lounge area for us all to relax in. Clean, well knitted kitchen - a delight to cook in. A huge dining table for us all to eat/drink/play games around. Clean, cosy bedrooms with lovely bathrooms. Great outdoor area for games or just mooching. Plenty of parking space and lovely views. The owners are right next door and could not have done more.

Mrs Wilson
August 2015
Glasfryn Barn is an amazing property in a wonderful setting and a beautiful part of the country. It has been lovingly created by the owners and everything is top quality. It was spotlessly clean and absolutely everything was provided - all that we needed, and more. I think it would be impossible to improve on this property - our family certainly had a wonderful time there.
Ms Wheeler
August 2015
This converted barn is a work of art, it is truly beautiful and really spacious. The setting is gorgeous with a wonderful yard for ball games with the children. I have rented many holiday homes and this is beyond anything I have ever rented before. The owners are informative and charming, as well. This is a wonderful choice for extended family gatherings.

This is a truly fantastic place to stay. Attention to every small detail, immaculately clean and brilliantly equipped. Our party consisted of 6 adults and 4 children under 5 and the spacious open plan downstairs layout was perfect for everyone to enjoy each other's company and allow the children the freedom to play.. The large lawned garden is also a perfect place for children to play in absolute safety and for the adults to enjoy a drink and a BBQ. As per previous reviews there is no wifi and phone signal is iffy which might not suit everyone, and means you can't rely on them to do any on-line searches or manage e mails. Glasfryn Barn is near perfection and I would recommend it without hesitation.
Mr Cross
May 2015
Liked the position, and high standard of the accommodation.
Mr Hodgson
January 2015
The property was very clean well presented and there was plenty of crockery, glasses utensils. There was also plenty of outside space for children to play with games sports equipment provided.

As regular renters of holiday properties for many, many years, we have stayed in numerous cottages and locations - this is unquestionably the most immaculate cottage we have ever stayed in. Spotless throughout, and a very warm welcome from the owners. The attention to every detail was just wonderful. Lots of space, beautiful location and great for you and old. Highly recommended !!
Mrs Lambert
June 2014
The house was beautifully clean and well presented and the garden was excellent and designed to attract wildlife which was a treat to watch. The welcome hamper was a nice surprise and the barbecue and chimenea, with logs provided was an extra treat. Our hosts were welcoming, friendly and helpful, couldn't fault it all in any way. Would definitely return.
Mr Roose
June 2014
Our party of 9 - adults and children - very much enjoyed staying at Glasfryn. The barn has been converted to a very high standard and is very comfortable and well-equipped in all respects. The spacious living/dining area on the ground floor is great for large groups. The bedrooms are comfortable. The location is excellent for the mountains and the big sandy beach at Harlech.
Mr Few
June 2014
Outstanding- everything needed plus more in this wonderfully clean and equipped property. Accommodated 9 of us comfortably and the owners provided all the local information without hesitation. Family had a wonderful stay with each late afternoon/evening given over to enjoying the huge outside lawn and garden for playing ball games. Would strongly recommend
June 2014
Outstanding accommodation, everything one needs plus more! Spotlessly clean, extremely spacious with a lovely garden in which we enjoyed many activities with our grandchildren. Highly recommended, but beware that the area has a very erratic mobile signal and no wifi, but then it is a holiday so away from the hustle and bustle made it even more attractive.

Luxury barn conversion, beautiful and equipped to a very high standard. It has to be the best holiday home we have rented. It had everything we wanted, all mod cons plus loads of Dvds, games (indoor and outdoor), always full bird feeders(!), secure safe garden for kids. The owners were friendly, and very helpful. Very peaceful location, but near to beaches, castles, Portmerion, and Snowdon. Would very happily go back, couldn't fault it.

Glasfryn Barn is gorgeous! Our family group of nine were very comfortable there. Every area of the house was immaculate and nicely decorated.

I would recommend this accommodation enthusiastically to everyone.

Glasfryn Barn was our Home Away from Home for Christmas 2010. The home was decorated wonderfully for the holidays as the owners had promised and far exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was well appointed and had everything we needed to make a full holiday dinner. Home was clean and everything was as good as new. White sheets and towels made it feel like we were at a luxury hotel. Owners were friendly, welcoming, and genuine. Location was perfect for a quiet holiday with children, grand parents, and great grandma!
Ms Fisher
November 2010
There was a welcome pack awaiting us. Although we had taken all we required, if anyone had forgotten tea, coffee, milk, bread, sugar, salt, pepper, ice cubes, toilet rolls and much more, they were there for us. Our hosts were wonderful and went out of their way to accommodate any requests - the wine was a lovely touch. Even on the wet rainy day when we all stayed in, we had DVDs to watch, games to play and the wild life to entertain us.
Mr Mrs O'Day
October 2010
The property owners were friendly and welcoming. They helped to ensure our stay was enjoyable and relaxing. Horseshoe bats, owls, woodpeckers and buzzards; what an amazing place! The garden was enjoyed by our grandchildren. A great area, a really good holiday.

Everything; the welcome and welcome gifts were outstanding. The property was in an excellent location and was extremely clean and well equipped. We did not want for anything and our hosts were more than helpful and were very pleasant. The cost for 10 people to stay for the week was well worth it. We will be returning next year.
