Dog FriendlyNear BeachHot TubReal Fire

Located in a rural part of the Pen Llyn (Llyn Peninsula), Llwyn y Forwyn is a lovingly renovated barn near the Lôn Goed, perfect for small families and couples. This single storey renovation includes two bedrooms and a fabulous and private outdoor space with wood heated hot tub. For guests that enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside, woodland walks and exploring the coastline, Llwyn y Forwyn is the ideal destination.

A private gravelled driveway leads to the property's front door, opening into the hallway. To the left, a bright and airy lounge shows off the barn structure with exposed wooden beams in the eaves of the building. Velux windows and a glazed door into the garden allow light to flood in to this cosy space. A pair of two seater leather sofas are positioned in an L shape around a thick rug, facing a cosy log burner installed on a slate hearth in the corner of the room. A large Smart TV is located on the wall about a gorgeous wooden side unit. Passing through the hallway, the kitchen diner is well equipped for guests self catering needs. The kitchen units are of traditional farmhouse style with a modern touch, finished in a neutral stone colour with a white granite effect worktop. A large fridge freezer with water dispenser is located in the corner of the kitchen, and there is a built in dishwasher along with oven, gas hob, microwave, kettle and toaster. A four seating farmhouse dining table sits in the centre of the space, the chairs painted in pastel shades.

From the kitchen, a further corridor leads to the lovingly renovated barn near the Lôn Goed's two bedrooms. The main bedroom, a cosy double includes a wooden framed bed with rustic wooden bedside cabinets and table lamps. To the opposite end of the room, a large wardrobe and chest of drawers of the same style are situated alongside a wall mounted TV. The bedding, in neutral colours and a chequered pattern, complements the furniture nicely. The second bedroom, ideal for children, includes a set of dark wooden bunks in same style as the bedroom furniture. A chest of drawers with open shelving is located next to the bunks, along with a table lamp for subtle lighting. The bedroom windows both feature thick blinds in a Welsh blanket pattern. Completing Llwyn y Forwyn's layout is a bathroom between the lounge and kitchen. Wood strip flooring is laid to the floor and classic white wall tiles give the room a stylish feel. A bath is installed to one side with shower head over, next to a WC and basin unit with storage under.

Floor Plans




The fabulous rural setting of this lovingly renovated barn near the Lôn Goed provides a haven of peace and tranquility for guests wishing to spend time at the property, as well as exploring the local area. Doors from both the lounge and kitchen open into a fabulous garden space including a sunny patio area with brightly coloured wooden seating, an outdoor dining set, drum barbeque and most impressively a wood heated hot tub with privacy screen. This, as well as a large lawn, creates the perfect private space for al fresco dining in the evenings, a glass of wine in the hot tub, or simply a secure space for the kids to play. If you manage to drag yourself away, there is also plenty do in this part of the Pen Llyn.

For gentle walks, the picturesque Lôn Goed passes nearby the property. A seven mile woodland walk, Lôn Goed begins at the coastal setting of Afonwen before heading inland towards Bryncir. Lôn Goed translates in English to Tree Lane, so unsurprisingly much of the route is under a canopy of trees providing shade (or shelter) from the elements. It's a lovely walk and suitable for all the family. Keen cyclists will also enjoy the area with a number of cycle lanes that start nearby, one of which heads in the direction of Caernarfon and onwards into the Ogwen Valley.

The seaside town of Criccieth is only a ten minute drive from Llwyn y Forwyn and is a great destination for a day out. With the imposing Criccieth Castle sitting at the high point of the town, there are fabulous views into Eryri (Snowdonia) and along Cardigan Bay from here. Be sure to stop into Cadwalader's for some amazing ice cream, or grab a sea front lunch at Dylan's Restaurant, located in a fabulous art deco building. Slightly further afield, Morfa Bychan beach is a long expanse of golden sand where drivers can park on the beach. It's a popular spot for all in the summer months. For amazing coastal walks, the Pen Llyn has a range of diverse landscapes, all accessed along the Wales Coast Path. The northern coast is wild and rugged with impressive cliffs and sweeping beaches, whilst the southern coast features sandy coves with gently lapping waters.

Amazing stay! Lovely place and the host are so lovely and polite. Definitely recommend!


Great accomodation in a nice rural location. Booking was simple and communication was great. We were nicely welcomed on the day of arrival and knew there would be help on hand should we need anything. Would definitely stay again and recommend Dioni for other beautiful places to stay.


Wonderful cottage in beautiful surroundings. Eifion and Ema were the perfect hosts… we were made to feel very welcome. The only time we needed them was when we ran out of teabags and they were very quickly on hand to help us out! The cottage was immaculately clean and even better than it looks in the photos. It felt like everything had been thought of. We were after a peaceful few days in a tranquil location and it exceeded our expectations!

Llwyn-y-forwyn was superb and spotlessly clean, it had everything you could need and was very warm and cosy on the cold Winter evenings with the log burner glowing. We had a fabulous week in this beautiful part of Wales and to top it off it snowed on the last day. I would very much recommend this beautifully converted barn to anyone wanting a relaxing break .


Could not recommend this beautiful cottage highly enough. Everything was perfect. The cottage was probably the cleanest place I’ve stayed and I loved the modern yet traditional decor of the place. The facilities were great for my one year old daughter, from a great high chair and a lovely cot where she had fab nights sleep. We certainly made use of the cosy log burner and outdoor hot tub which were perfect for the cold November weather. The hosts were super friendly and were on hand for anything that was needed. Would love to visit again soon!


Beautiful cottage and spotlessly clean. The surroundings were peaceful and a good location to explore the peninsula. Made use of the hot tub to make the most of the quiet nights and to star gaze. The owners had left lots of helpful information and were on hand should we have needed them. We can’t wait to book another visit.

The cottage is beautiful. Newly renovated to a fabulous standard, it is spotlessly clean with everything you need and more.
The living room is comfortable and cozy with the log burner making evenings extra special.
Beds are comfortable, plenty of storage space and hangers, full length mirror in main bedroom, I felt like everything had been thought of. Oh, and it’s in a super quiet spot! I’m a light sleeper and often struggle when we go away if there’s road noise etc but it was silent here and we both got 3 good nights sleep.
The bathroom is well appointed and the shower water pressure was ace. Nice touch that there is a bath for a lovely soak too.
Kitchen again was well appointed and had everything you could need. Spotlessly clean too.
The garden was lovely and large, completely dog friendly and secure, with a gorgeous view to the hills.
The hot tub takes quite a while to warm up (explained in instructions) so I’d give yourself plenty of time to prep it. I suspect it’s an easier process in the summer months when it’s warmer but again it’s a nice touch.
The house is dog friendly with hard floors everywhere apart from the bedrooms. A little dog “pack” was also provided consisting of dog bowl, towel, blanket – lovely touch.
We loved our little welcome pack of cake, biscuits etc and it made us smile that there was a treat for the pooch in there too! Thankyou.
The location is tucked away but an easy drive to all the wonderful beaches and walks in the area.
One of the nicest stays we’ve had in a long time. A big Thankyou to the owners. Xxxx


My husband and I really enjoyed our stay, beautiful cottage and quiet location. The cottage was very clean and well equipped. We were made to feel welcome by host and a goodies welcome supply pack. We can highly recommend this property.

Would also recommend Dylans Restaurant in Criccieth, great food and service, book a table to avoid disappointment.


Beautiful house and surroundings it was very clean and the hosts were always there if needed. Lovely welcome pack which was a very nice touch. Would definitely recommend it to anyone and will definitely be coming back. Ideally located as lots to see and do around the area.


Lovely cottage which was very clean and with nice quality furniture and fittings. Great garden for dogs and the hot tub was an added bonus. We had a relaxing break, the cottage felt very peaceful and we had everything we needed. Good location, only a short drive to Criccieth and convenient for exploring the area. Thanks for having us.
