Ground Floor Barn Conversion | Bryncaled

Near Beach

Bryncaled is a two bedroom ground floor barn conversion near Chwilog a beautiful and rural part of the Llyn peninsula. The sun was shining and the neighbouring farmer was haymaking when we visited the cottage, so I think we saw it at its idyllic best. It’s central location allows guest to enjoy the mountains of Snowdonia as well as the famous sandy beaches of the Llyn Peninsula.

Recently renovated this old stone cottage has been well designed and laid out. Its original stone exterior belies the up to date facilities within. A large bright kitchen-diner boasts a modern fully fitted kitchen as well as fantastic views over the surrounding fields and the mountains beyond.

The lounge is equally spacious. A comfortable 3 piece suite faces onto a renovated stone fireplace and chimney breast The original wooden beams and real wood flooring adds character and warmth to the room.

The adjoining hallway leads initially to the bathroom. Well laid out once again, with a shower over bath. Two bedrooms in total. One twin and one double. So perfect for small families but the price means it’s not unreasonable for two.

Floor Plans




There is one farmhouse nearby but apart from that, this ground floor barn conversion is surrounded by green fields on all sides. The area is a stronghold for the Welsh language and the cottage offers a true taste of rural Wales. The village of Chwilog is just over a mile away. The village has one pub, The Madryn, a post office and a small corner shop for papers, etc.

The popular harbour town of Pwllheli and its boating marina is 5 miles away and the very fashionable seaside town of Abersoch a little further on again. These seaside destinations are a must for all guests naturally. (Don’t forget to try the ice cream at ‘Cadwaladers’ when you get to Criccieth.) But the real advantage of staying in this cottage is the fact that the mountains of Snowdonia are also so accessible. Snowdon itself is only a short drive away and the area now offers an abundance of activities for all. Centres for white water rafting, mountain biking, and rock climbing are fast making Snowdonia the place for adrenaline junkies.

More leisurely and cultural pastimes are also available naturally. The area is littered with historic monuments and castles. Criccieth is the nearest, with Caernarfon and Conwy castle all within an hour's drive. The gardens at Bodnant are also well worth a visit for visitors to this ground floor barn conversion, as are the art galleries in Llanbedrog and Llangefni.

Les Newman

A brilliant cottage in a lovely area. We could see the sea and mount snowdon from the garden. It has everything you could possibly need on your holiday and is very clean and well looked after. Located in an area where you can go to a lot of places very quickly. Try a hidden gem of a beach at Aberdesach, only 12 miles away. Lots of pheasants, hares, rabbitts and birds of prey seen as well. Loved the holiday, will return.


Another fantastic stay at Bryn Caled- it was lovely to see the Llyn Peninsula at another time of year. As always the welcome hamper and ‘home from home’ feel were much appreciated. Waking up to such lovely views is a real highlight.

This time the weather was much more mixed, but this gave us the chance to explore a bit more. The Woodland Wanderer train from Porthmadog was a really nice morning out, and it meant we visited somewhere we probably wouldn’t have gone otherwise. We also loved the National Slate Mining Museum (the waterwheel is amazing!) and Sygun Copper Mine is well worth a visit- I’d recommend either for families, especially on a rainy day.

An absolutely amazing cottage. From the moment we stepped inside we felt welcomed and home. Stunning views, impeccably clean, comfortable and private. A perfect base for beaches and walks. Genuinely we could not have asked for anything more. We did not want to leave. A wonderful break which we will definitely be repeating.

Andy Parton

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at this beautiful cottage. Clean, tidy and the Welcome pack was a lovely touch, along with the fresh flowers.
A great base, quiet and secluded, yet within a 10 minute drive to reach the larger towns.
We would recommend this cottage highly.

David Poynter

What an amazing cottage. We have stayed in many cottages and this one is at the top of the list. This spacious cottage in its peaceful rural location provides all that is needed for a comfortable stay. There is so much to do in the area including beautiful beaches and towns, easy access to Snowdonia and Anglesey and many other attractions, all just a short car ride away. We will definitely be back. Thank you for such an enjoyable stay.


From the moment we stepped through the door we felt at home and safe in this spotlessly clean and well equipped cottage. The peace and beautiful views made our few days away everything we could wish for.

Helen Fitzgerald

A lovely well equipped and very clean cottage in a superb location. There is so much to do within a short drive, but Snowdonia and Anglesey are easily accessible. The wildlife in the fields surrounding the cottage was a true delight, hares, woodpeckers, buzzards, kites, and a peregrine falcon that roosts in a tree in the back field. Can’t wait to return.

Bryn Caled was as lovely as ever… so quiet and peaceful… but near to so many lovely beaches, mountains and cycle routes. Spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Great communication with Dioni and owners. We can highly recommend a holiday here… it was our third stay here and our fourth with Dioni .


We had a wonderful week at Bryn Caled and wish we could have stayed longer! It’s a lovely cottage surrounded by beautiful countryside.
The owners were really helpful and the welcome hamper much appreciated!

Alice Randone

We had a great time. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed and more. And it’s in a beautiful location!
