Near BeachNear PubReal FireFarm Stay

A wonderful retreat in North West Wales, Gadlan is a thoughtfully renovated spacious barn conversion, packed full of character and charm. Sleeping two, this beautiful and rural two bedroom property is a wonderful spot to relax, recharge and explore the local surrounds of the Llyn Peninsula.

The front door leads into a wonderful large open plan living space, with high vaulted ceilings. Exposed original wooden beams provide a hint to the history of the building, alongside the exposed stone work and wooden lintels above and around the doors and windows. The remainder of the walls are finished in a bright white, contrasting nicely with the dark wooden flooring of the room. The carefully chosen furniture, fixtures and fittings place traditional character pieces alongside modern and contemporary items. The U shaped kitchen units, finished in a pastel pink are sleek and modern, with a granite top. With ample counter space along with storage, there is a built in fridge freezer, dishwasher along with a built in oven and microwave. This is a fabulous kitchen for preparing breakfasts and dinners for the group, to dine seated around the traditional farmhouse dining table positioned against the side wall.

Retiring to the cosy lounge area of Gadlan, there's a fabulous grey leather Chesterfield sofa with brightly pattered throw, sitting alongside a minimalist wooden armchair complete with reindeer skin throw. It's a cosy space to catch up on a box set on the wall mounted smart TV, or simply to chat while listening to the crackle of the fire in the centre piece log burner, sitting on a slate hearth. A door to the rear of the room leads to a peaceful outdoor space with a sunken patio and seating area, surrounded by a lawn and fields of grazing cows.

The property features two good sized double bedrooms, both accessed from the main living space. To the rear of the property, the first bedroom is a stunning and stylish space, finished in white. The feature wall includes exposed stonework above a plinth with up lighting - a bed located centrally with sockets either side including USB ports. Storage space in the room comprises of a simple open wardrobe with shelf under, completing this wonderfully minimalist space. The second bedroom to the front of the thoughtfully renovated spacious barn conversion is another lovely double room, with a metal framed bed covered with a bright Welsh blanket, along with bedside tables and a traditional wooden wardrobe unit. Wall lamps create a warm glow against the feature wall which is painted in natural tones.

The layout of Gadlan is completed by a wonderful bathroom with walk in shower cubicle. With stone tiled flooring and natural colours to the walls, the large bathroom features a wonderful rainforest shower, WC and modern sink unit built into a slate surround.

The rural setting of the property is less than three miles north of Pwllheli, and half a mile south of the small village of Y Ffôr which has a convenience store for stocking up on groceries prior to, or during your stay. Wanting to head out for dinner and drinks? Pwllheli offers numerous restaurants, bars and cafes. Ydlan is the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful Llyn Peninsula and its wonderful coastline, all of which can be accessed along the Wales Coast Path. West of the property, there are a number of stunning beaches including Llanbedrog with its clear shallow waters and Abersoch, a popular resort with a stunning golden sand beach, water sports and great drinking and dining scene.

Heading east from the thoughtfully renovated spacious barn conversion, the seaside town of Criccieth should not be missed. The main focal point of the town, Criccieth Castle, sits on a hill providing views across the Bae Ceredigion (Cardigan Bay) coastline as well as clear views across to the mountains of Eryri (Snowdonia) on a clear day. For ice cream, head to Cadwaladers on the high street, or for a wonderful lunch or dinner in a great setting, visit Dylan's Restaurant on the beachfront, located in a stunning art deco building.

The west and north coasts of the Llyn Peninsula offer some fabulous walking routes, with great clifftop trails, one of which starts from Aberdaron. The wild and wonderful beaches of the north coast are a must to explore and no visit to the Llyn should be made without a stop off at the Ty Coch Inn. This beachside pub at Porthdinllaen offers fabulous beach parties and can only be access via a cliff top walk from the Morfa Nefyn golf course, or a walk along the Morfa Nefyn beach to reach this quaint seaside village.
