This is a great location for exploring Snowdonia and the surrounding area.. The converted barn was very comfortable, with lovely views from the first floor living room, and Mr and Mrs Roberts were very friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed 5 days of sunshine, with only 2 wet days (when the rest of the country was wet), which exceeded our expectations for Wales!
We had a fantastic week here with our two young kids.. The house was amazing and far better / more modern than it looked in photos which was a lovely surprise! It was very cosy and had everything we needed. The location was great - perfect for exploring the local area. The house had a little garden we could use for the kids, and it was very peaceful in the evenings (once they had gone to bed!). The owners were so lovely - gave us plenty of space but were on hand if we needed anything. They even gave our three year old a birthday card and present once they heard it was his birthday while we were there!! I couldn't recommend it enough - a perfect family holiday.
Mr and Mrs Roberts made us feel very welcome (they live next door).. The cottage had everything you would need especially when it came to those little touches like the welcome cake, tissues, soap powder and washing up liquid. We only had to bring our food with us. If you are on a walking holiday, the location is perfect. If you just want to chill, the views and beaches are lovely. Would definetly like to revisit.
We have been a few times now never get tired of property and location.. Owners live next door and are always very helpful and friendly.
The cottage is great and perfectly placed for the beaches of Llandanwg and Harlech and for trips into Harlech.. The owners were absolutely lovely and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. We’d definitely revisit and would recommend Ysgubor to anybody wanting a holiday in Snowdonia.
Such wonderful people.. They even left us some cakes for when we arrived, and there was also milk in the 'fridge for a cup of tea when we got there. A very thoughtful gesture. They were both very welcoming, and always ready to offer assistance or advice, yet never intrusive. There was even a card to welcome us to the property.
Mrs Roberts even phoned us to ask if we had arrived home safely. That shows how much they care.
We would love to visit again, but we are not sure when.
What a lovey place to stay.. The owners made us very welcolme. The barn was well equipped and in a super location, close to the beach but not far from the mountains either. Furnished and decorated beautifully. A very comfortable home from home. The sheep outside were fascinating, it was great to watch them. The garden was lovely too, a great place to relax after exploring wonderful Snowdonia. We simply loved our time here in Wales.
Lovely property, spacious and cosy, and warm! Well equipped kitchen. Owners were very helpful. Lovely views. Lovely house just to relax in. Only 2 minute drive from the beach where we enjoyed a stroll taking in the sea air! Such close proximity to plenty of activities. Would highly recommend!
Had lovely holiday we have been a few times and love the area.. Accomodation is excellent quite close to beach. Owners live next door always and are always very helpful. Always look forward to returning.
Beautiful location easy to find.. Owners are a lovely couple always willing to help. We love it there.
The cottage was amazing and the owners very friendly would definitely book again
We stayed here for a week and after the first day wished we had booked for two weeks. This modern barn conversion is in an ideal position. The beach is just down the road and Harlech and Barmouth are not far away. Barmouth can be reached by the train that stops in the station nearby.
The barn itself is very comfortable and the views from the sitting room are by far the best we have had from any holiday home.
The owners live next door and could not be more pleasant. We even received a tray with tea, milk and cake when we arrived.
We will be returning for sure. Highly recommended.
The location is great -- the sea, the mountains, the castles.. The property is attractive, clean and well equipped. The owners (who live next door) couldn't be more friendly or helpful. Highly recommended.
Very friendly and helpful owners, the location of the cottage is superb.
The cottage was lovely, the view out of window from living room was fabulous.
The owners were very friendly and we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome.
And it is only a 10-15 minute walk through the village to a lovely beach.
It is the first place we have stayed at that we will definitely come back to.
An excellent location and excellent facility with wonderful views from the property. The owners were very nice, would definitely stay again.
We particularly liked the location; its stunning setting and proximity to beach. The beds were extremely comfortable. The owners were such hospitable and friendly people. Availability of WiFi was a big bonus.
We had awful weather during our stay but the cottage/house was absolutely amazing. The views were gorgeous, we could even see the sea. A lovely cosy place that we would definitely return to in the near future.
Once again thoroughly enjoyed our stay; right from the booking, to arriving at Ysgubor and being greeted by the owners who are so welcoming and helpful, as always it was a lovely peaceful/restful holiday! It's like a home from home with a different view and so many places to visit. Have booked again, roll on next year!
We've stayed at Ysgubor quite a few times now, and I could easily wax lyrical about it. However, I think the fact that we keep going back is worth more than words, and the Other Half summed it up perfectly about half way through our week. Looking happily around the living room, he said, We could live here easily, couldn't we? I'd just been thinking exactly the same thing. It's perfect.
This was our third visit to the property. It is in a great location for exploring North Wales with good walks direct from the property and close to the beach. It is dog friendly, we will be returning again.
A beautiful property in an excellent location. It was a 10 minute walk to the beach, a relaxing break with friendly owners. We could not have found a better location. We will definitely be booking again.
Excellent value, clean and well equipped accommodation. The owners were really friendly and could not do enough to help. The kitchen was well equipped and everything you could need was supplied. There were plenty of towels supplied and the beds were really comfy. This is very much a home from home and we would highly recommend. The beaches in the area are fantastic and this is a perfect place to explore the area. We honestly cannot fault Ysgubor!
We had two wonderful weeks with fabulous sunshine and enjoyed the cottage, the surrounding an the beautiful beach very much. The owners gave us such a warm welcome so we are sure to come back. Our children and our dog took a bath in the Atlantic Sea every day (the temperature did not matter) and we relaxed during long walks at the beach. I can recommend this cottage to everyone looking for a quiet stay in wonderful surroundings near a calm beach!
Very easy to find as is visible from main road.
A stunning barn conversion although it is only the recessed part, not the whole of the building. Despite this, it is a real "Tardis" on the inside, finished to a high contemporary style, very comfortably furnished, well equipped and easy to keep clean. Dramatic views of the mountains which seemed to change with the weather from the large picture window and sea views from the picnic table on the top terraced lawn. Shared Wi-fi is available with the owners next door but not advertised as can be unpredictable. Courtesy was second to none, more than life's essentials were provided, only unpacked clothes, personal toiletries and food.
A short stroll through the village to the "people friendly" beach (they only have a small designated area!), the rest, and the nature reserve, dogs are permitted, it is possible to do a circular walk to Harlech beach, not for the faint-hearted as it includes crossing the rail track and a steep climb but worth it for the breathtaking views of the surrounding area.
Not a lot to do in immediate area so a car is pretty essential although it is close to publc transport but makes a wonderful touring base.
A fabulous and cleverly designed Ysgubor (Welsh for Barn) conversion retaining some original features. A Tardis on the inside, furnished and decorated to a particularly high standard. Because of the landscape and the upside down accommodation from the rear of the property, the living area is elevated and the bedrooms are intriguingly semi subterranean. The terraced lawns were beautiful, with views to the sea from the picnic table and dramatic mountain views from the large picture window which interestingly changed with the weather. Courtesy was second to none, only needed to unpack clothes, toiletries and food, most, if not all (or more!) of life's essentials were provided. It was spotlessly clean, I hope we left it to a reasonable standard. The owners certainly have a passion for this property, being only next door they are on hand for any advice or problems, yet leave you alone to enjoy your holiday, a massive thank you to them!
This is our third time staying at Ysgubor. We love the accommodation, location of the barn and the surrounding area. The owners are such lovely people, very welcoming and they cannot do enough to make your feel at home. I always feel sad to leave, but look forward to our next visit to Ysgubor.
We stayed in Wales (and UK) first time. The owners gave us a very warm-hearted welcome and are very likeable, friendly and helpful. As English is not our mother tongue and we do not speak the language fluently, unfortunately, it was very pleasant that the owners spoke slowly and clearly. So there were no communication problems. The cottage was very clean, very comfortable and nothing is missing. It is very lovingly furnished and decorated. The surrounding area is really very beautiful. The close proximity to the mountains, the sea, the sights and the town Harlech is ideal. We enjoyed our visit in Wales and our stay at this cottage so much that we already booked the cottage again for our vacation next May.

Very comfortable accommodation, well situated for visiting North and West Wales. A very friendly welcome from the owners of the property.
We really liked sitting and looking out of the big picture window, watching the weather and how it seemed to make the scenery change every day, the birds, the new lambs. A very relaxing place and so good to have such a fantastic beach nearby. Great walks from the front door, too.
This was our third visit to Ysgubor, and the best yet. We live and work in the hustle and bustle of central Cardiff, so to go somewhere so beautiful, so peaceful, so quiet and so tranquil gives us a real boost. We love the walk from Llandanwg beach up to Harlech (but watch the tides!) and to have no neighbours except sheep is bliss. Having said that, the owners of Ysgubor live next door, and cannot be faulted. Warm, welcoming and friendly, they're on hand if you need them and not to be seen if you don't! It's wonderful.
Beautiful countryside, very clean and peaceful. The owners were so nice and helpful. A very relaxing holiday, shame to have to go home.
This was the best of the three cottages we rented in the UK. Good bathroom with great shower pressure, glass shower door, and wonderful view of the surroundings. Large kitchen with dishwasher, separate dining room. Owners were very helpful in explaining heat system, and giving advice on the area. They even got information for us on a male choir practice which was absolutely wonderful. We would love to go back. No wonder they are booked up far in advance.
Overall very happy with the property, location and help from the owners. Would recommend to others, and are considering returning next year.
This was our second visit to Ysgubor, and we would like to visit again. The owners made us feel very welcome, they are a truly lovely couple. It is such a magical peaceful place the combination of mountains, fields and sea, the views are stunning. Cannot wait until our next visit.
Immaculate property, warm welcome from the owners and glorious weather.
Couldn't have asked for more!
The cottage was very comfortable.
The view from the sitting room was excellent. The owners were very welcoming helpful.
Good owners, very helpful. Great location; lots to do in the area.
The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Lovely accomodation - clean, cosy and warm. Superb views of countryside and coast, with lambs just outside the window. Easy to find and close to main road for access to the area, yet quiet.
The location was excellent and the owners extremely helpful and friendly.
Beautiful location, warm comfortable accommodation with friendly owners.
Ysgubor is a beautiful converted barn. The owners were very helpful and friendly. The views from the lounge were stunning. The area is beautiful. Just a short walk from the beautiful beach. Overall the holiday was fantastic and we will certainly go back.
Friendly owners and a lovely location, perfect for long walks with our dog. Our 2nd visit and we will be returning soon.
Our second time here! Beautiful, comfortable accommodation in a great location. North Wales in December can be a lottery but the cottage is a real little sanctuary for us and our dogs - this time we were blessed with 5 days of blue skies and walking on the local beaches, estuaries and hills is wonderful.
The owners could not have been more friendly and helpful. The weather was wonderful enabling us to enjoy the incredible scenery and our dog had the time of his life on the superb local beaches. A late break to remember for all the right reasons.
High quality comfortable cottage in a quiet location convenient for the beach. Very welcoming and helpful hosts.
A very comfortable cottage, good location and close to the beach.
The property was very good, the location was excellent, the owners were on hand if we needed them and were very friendly and helpful. There was an excellent selection of games and books. The property was very well converted.
One of the best cottages we have stayed in,and we have stayed in a lot. Perfect location with lovely views, peace and quiet, it was very comfortable and clean too.The beautiful beach is nearby which was a big plus as we had our dog with us. The owners live next door and were most helpful and very friendly. Greatly recommend this gem of a find!
The owners, who live next door, are very helpful. The cottage itself was lovely and you couldn't ask for anything more when you moved in.
An excellent location - the cottage was well located and fitted out. A lovely area.
Modern, spacious and comfortable accommodation with nice views. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners who live next door. Lovely people.
The cottage was of high quality and was tastefully decorated. Very peaceful and relaxing and set in beautiful surroundings. We liked the enclosed garden for our dog and the beach was within walking distance. The owners very friendly and helpful. We would definitely visit North Wales again, it was just beautiful.
A beautiful and peaceful place, the views out of the lounge window were wonderful. The owners were very friendly, helpful and lovely people - made you feel very welcome!
The property was very comfortable, especially the beds and sofa's, and had lovely views from the living room. The owners were very friendly. Our dog loved the beach that was just down the lane. We would definitely stay here again.
Rural location, excellent views from picture windows. Very friendly, helpful owners next door. Excellent sandy beach 10mins walk away. Good local walks in the area.
Enjoyed use of picnic table and nice secure, small grassed garden area in stone walled garden. Owners very welcoming friendly. Ideally situated for walk to station/bus stop and evening walk down to nature reserve and beach for sunsets.
Nice quiet area, only a short walk to the train station so we didn't need to use the car everyday. The area was lovely with great walks on some wonderful beaches. The people who we met were very friendly and willing to explain the Welsh names and how to pronounce them. The owners only lived next door and were very friendly.
Very well maintained furnished cottage in beautiful surroundings. Cottage was well equipped with thoughtful extras such as board games and plenty of books. Nearby beach at Llandanwg was about 15 min walk away and Harlech is about 10 min drive away and cottage is well situated for exploring Snowdonia National Park. Owners are next door and are very helpful and friendly.
The property was excellent, and in a nice setting. The owners were very friendly and on hand for any questions.
The location and property was outstanding, as was the warm welcome from the owners - tea home made cakes on arrival really made our short break. We will return. Meg the dog really enjoyed her first holiday by the sea.
Nature of the property - old barn beautifully converted, very tastefully furnished in a modern style. Stunning views from the property and beautiful, situated in very tranquil farmland setting but with very close proximity to two beautiful beaches.
Well maintained modern barn conversion ideally located for those who like a restful break in peaceful surroundings. Close to the sea with an exellent beach walk. Lots of inland routes to take for cycling or walking. It's just a pity that the pub isn't within walking distance but you can't have everything.
The owners live next door and are happy to give whatever help you need. We arrived to find a tea tray with cakes ready for us!
We will be back.
Service from start to end of holiday was first class.Great help from Sykes staff while booking cottage and from owners next door on our arrival (home made cakes to die for)Lovely location with great views and walks from our garden, dogs welcomed and great beaches to exercise on.Thanks for a great holiday see you soon
We loved the location! The owners were lovely and friendly. Easy parking, great views and a very attractive lounge/diner. The cottages was warm (excellent heating and hot water system)
The colour scheme is beautiful and well coordinated throughout. Highly practical layout for the dogs too!
Fantastic location and the owners were wonderful and what great cakes they baked for us. Big thanks to all, we cant wait to return!
There were fresh flowers, tea and home made cakes left by the owner for when we arrived. Lovely location, quiet but not off the beaten track. Just right for walking and cycling. Ideal for a summer holiday or a winter break to unwind.
A really comfortable cottage, near the sea and the mountains with excellent friendly owners.
The cottage was so good that it has probably spoiled us for any other. Set in a beautiful area and the owners were very helpful. We would definitely recommend the cottage to our friends. Our holiday was made easy by Sykes very efficient service. Thank you.
It looked good in the brochure but was even better in real life. The views, location and tranquility were great and the open plan lounge, kitchen and dining room were perfect. Whilst I slaved in the kitchen I was still part of the group! The friendly owners were on hand for any info we wanted.
A superb character cottage within Snowdonia National Park and an excellent base to explore North West Wales.
From the fresh flowers and Welsh Cakes that greeted our arrival, to the hours spent watching the wildlife from the large picture window, this is undoubtedly one of the best cottages we've ever stayed in. We will return!
Great location with fabulous mountain views and the owners are very kind and friendly people.
The owners made us feel extremely welcome and were very helpful. A lovely cottage which was well equipped and well looked after. The location of the cottage is excellent for the coast and surrounding hills. A short walk away is a train halt for the coastal railway which is well worth a days trip.
Mr Van Bergen
In addition to the superb holiday home, the helpful and friendly owners did their utmost (and succeeded) to ensure that we had a pleasant stay. The rural charm, the quiet location and yet all necessary facilities nearby helped us to make our stay a success.
A lovely cottage, welcoming owners, close to a fantastic beach. Handy for a lot of Welsh tourist attractions.
The owners of the property were very welcoming and helpful and could not do enough for you. The location was perfect, very peaceful and relaxing with fantastic views. We didn't want to leave as we enjoyed our holiday so much.
Great location, lovely setting, beautiful property, owners great and we want to go back.
The owners have set the standard! Fantastic property in a fantastic location. This is our 2nd visit to the property and we will certainly be coming back.
I can not recommend this property more highly. The location was excellent, 10 minutes walk with our dog to the beach, which was so empty and clean. Harlech was 5 minutes in the car, with a good selection of take aways, who wants to cook on their hols and the most magnificent castle... The propert was clean, tidy and laid out lovely with everything one needed for a hasel free holiday. The owners , who live next door, where so nice and helpful. All in all, a fantastic quiet relaxing break with great walks and even though the weather was a bit wet, it was in October, the views where fantastic. We have already recomended it to our friends and will be going back there too.
We whre very impressed with the quality and location of the property. The owners were very welcoming and very helpful. The nearby beach was perfect as was the nearby town of Harlech, offering a wide range of food outlets and interesting places to visit. Our dog enjoyed the lovely walks and the long sandy beach. We enjoyed the property and area that much we where upset at leaving and we will be booking the property again and recommending it to our friends. Even though the weather was not brilliant we had a relaxing and most enjoyable stay.
The location was great, the owners were very friendly and helpful.
The cottage was well designed and decorated, the big picture window had an excellent view, and the location was ideal.
A very well appointed cottage, the upside down accommodation gave us lovely views of the surrounding countryside while sitting relaxing in the evening. Although it was July we had half a week of rain, but it was a lovely cottage just to relax in and play board games with the children. Within walking distance of a lovely sandy dog friendly beach and a circular walk took us up to Harlech for a well deserved cream tea. Would make an excellent base at any time of the year.
Walking distance to excellent dog beach. Exceptional view from lounge window.
Great property and garden for the dog. Excellent position to make use of local train service to other tourist areas.
Fabulous setting, fabulous accommodation. Great place to see lots in the surrounding areas. The owners were truly welcoming and lovely. Liked watching the farm carry on about its business. The sunsets!
Jenny and Joan
The accomodation was clean, comfortable and modern and the owners very friendly. Just 15 mins stroll down the lane was a beautiful beach, the location was absolutely lovely and perfect for exploring Snowdonia. Enjoyed a wonderful holiday.
We were welcomed by Mrs Roberts (the owner)on arrival,with a sincere cheerful manner.
The cottage was clean,fresh and supplied with everything needed for a self-catering holiday.
The views from the lounge window were tranquil and beautiful. We were there in spring and all the new lambs were hopping round the field.
The location provided a nice stroll down to the lovely beach which has a local cafe (in high season). Harlech Castle and the seaside town of Barmouth were within easy driving distance.
We liked everything about the cottage and location and being able to take the dog was a great plus for us. I couldn't fault a thing! Would definately return.
We thought this cottage was truly beautiful and quaint. The location was ideal for what we wanted. Service was excellent, owners were extremley friendly and helpful.
Cottage was fitted with everything we required and aided us in having a fantastic first family holiday in Wales.
We have recommended this to our freinds and are considering returning next year.
The friendliness of the owners, and comfort and cleanliness of the accommodation. The scenery was superb; lovely walks and beaches.
Will definitely be returning!
The cottage and location were accurately described in the brochure. If anything, its qualities were under represented. It was great that we were able to take our dog too. The location and proximity to other places of interest was perfect for a short break.
It was a perfect cottage in a perfect location.
Warm welcome from the owner who greeted us in person. Lovely cottage. Good views and location, thinking about going again in warmer weather!
