Luxury Barn Conversion on Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) | Clogwyn-Barn

Dog FriendlyNear PubNear SnowdonReal FireFarm StayEV Charger

This luxury barn conversion on Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) offers spectacular holiday accommodation in a truly unique location. A wonderful example of a traditional stone built barn transformed into a 2 bedroom self catering cottage situated on the western slopes of Yr-Wyddfa itself. The decor and fixtures on the inside are outdone only by the spectacular landscape on the outside.

The spacious elongated open plan living area has, at its southern end, a well equipped kitchen with hand painted fitted units under a granite worktop. A welcoming log burner flanked by two comfortable leather sofas takes up the other end of the room. A central dining area sits in front of double glazed french doors that lead out onto a small patio and spectacular views of the Nantlle ridge on the far side of the valley. These doors, combined with the solid oak flooring and high vaulted ceiling help create a sense of light and space to match the landscape and completes this wonderfully social living space.

There are two bedrooms in the second half of the barn. The first has two victorian style iron single beds bedecked with cream duvets topped with traditional welsh woven blankets. The second master bedroom houses a king sized bed and has the added luxury of a tiled en-suite shower room with washbasin and wc.

Finally a large family bathroom has a shower over bath arrangement in addition to a second wc and washbasin.

Floor Plans




The great thing about staying on a working farm on Yr Wyddfa is that you have your own private access to the summit. The famous Yr Wyddfa Ranger path and Rhyd Ddu path flank both sides of the farm however and, less experienced walkers, might prefer to use these well marked routes to ascend the tallest peak in England and Wales.

Another highlight of this location is the Welsh Highland Steam railway that fights it’s way from the historic castle town of Caernarfon to the north down to the Harbour of Porthmadog to the south. Stopping off at the nearby Rhyd Ddu station as well as Beddgelert and Pont Croesor this most picturesque narrow gauge track is a fantastic way of exploring and enjoying the surrounding countryside.

Just the one pub in the village, but luckily the Cwellyn arms is fantastic and offers a great selection of real ales and home cooked meals. The village also has a lovely tearoom. Ty Mawr is most famous for it’s pancakes perhaps but also serves a delicious cooked breakfast if your feeling a little lazy one morning and, if you pre order they’ll even prepare a packed lunch for later on in the day for you.

All the usual activities associated with North Wales are within easy reach including fishing, horse riding, mountain biking and rock climbing.

Beautiful cottage in a fantastic setting. Hosts were excellent and cottage is well equipped. Perfect for anyone wanting to visit the Snowdonia region. Would highly recommend.

Janet Hill

A truly magical setting and despite the elements of rain and wind we had a few wonderful days walking. It was so wonderful to be able to walk from the barn up to Snowdon.
The barn is super clean and welcoming and the hosts were so warm. Highly recommend and we will be back.
Thank you so much Janet

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Clogwyn Barn. We were there for a fortnight and the property was perfect. We climbed Snowdon up Rhyd Ddu and back down the Ranger path and the property could not have been more ideally located. Spent a lot of time walking on the beaches with our dog (Newborough and Harlech were particularly good) and had some good meals out. The owners were really friendly and helpful. Would love to go back one day. Also like to thanks Dioni for searching this property out for us at fairly late notice.


An absolutely fantastic location with a multitude of gorgeous walks from your front door. Stunning scenery. Cottage very comfortable and owners super friendly and helpful.


The cottage was nicely presented and it’s in a lovely area, ideal for walks around the farm and of course climbing Yr Wyddfa/Snowdon. There were some nice gifts on arrival and the kitchen had everything necessary for preparing meals.

The shower in the en suite is nice but runs out the entire tank of hot water in about 5 minutes.

One issue that spoiled our holiday a bit was that at the time of booking, we were told that the EV charging was free to use, which seemed reasonable as the blurb says that they generate their own electricity, but when we got there, the owner wanted £25 per charge. Dioni confirmed that as this was a new policy, we could still charge for free but the owner insisted that we should pay and that the charger was really for her car. We gave up arguing and charged elsewhere.

In conclusion, a very nice base to explore the area but don’t make your choice based on the EV charging.


A lovely open space with cosy bedrooms. All the amenities. Safe enclosed area for the dogs. It was a lovely stay, perfect for Snowdon! We loved the barn and the area so much we have booked to go back. Owners are super friendly too.

Clogwyn Barn has the most beautiful views out of the big glass doors and windows and the Barn is spacious and comfortable. We all had a fabulous but exhausting time mountain walking and also a walk at the end of the Llyn Peninsula. It is always exciting to see the steam train chugging above the property. Warm and friendly hosts you will be so glad you booked this property.

Rachel Clough

Stunning cottage, immaculately clean and very cosy/ comfortable. We loved our welcome pack, the cake was delicious thank you.
In an ideal location, although the weather wasn’t kind to us, we still managed to get out and about. Would definitely love to return.

Kirsten Parrish

A fabulous place to stay – beautiful location, beautiful barn and lovely welcome pack on arrival. The cottage was spotlessly clean, really well equipped and very easy to live in. So quiet and peaceful too. We used it as a base for walking in the area which is of course fantastic – Snowdon straight from the door, and a short drive to other brilliant walks too. We didn’t want to leave…
