Romantic One Bedroom Barn Conversion Near Barmouth | Melin-Byrdir

Near BeachHot TubFarm StayEV Charger

This romantic one bedroom barn conversion near Barmouth commands stunning sea views over the Cambrian bay coastline. A private patio and garden provides the perfect platform from which to enjoy the surrounding countryside while a tastefully furnished interior affords all the convenience of a modern holiday cottage.

A stone step leads us through a glass doorway. A living flame gas fire sits on a welsh slate hearth to your right. A luxurious leather sofa sits to your left (don’t ask how we got the sofa through the narrow entrance). An impressive stone opening reaching from floor to ceiling takes us into a small dining area. The circular dining table and chairs must have one of the best views in Wales.

Turning back into the main living area we circle the central staircase to get to the kitchen area. The kitchen is small but well equipped and includes a combination oven, grill and microwave and electric hop, fridge and dishwasher. An adjacent ground floor bathroom has a modern white bathroom suite with power shower.

As steep wooden staircase leads us up into the vaulted ceiling of the barn. The stairway has an alternating step design so may not suit guests with mobility problems. The original and exposed oak beams of the barn flank a low slung king sized bed. White Egyptian cotton sheets and an uninterrupted view of the setting sun ensures a comfortable and romantic end to your day.

Floor Plans




A large shared car park with bike storage facilities is exited via a private pathway that leads down to a beautiful secluded garden. A large patio with outdoor table and chairs eventually gives way to an expanse of lawn with uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. Neighbouring farm animals are a popular distraction but guests should make the effort to explore the surrounding countryside either by foot or in the car.

There are lots of walks that can be enjoyed from the farm. There are maps and guides available in the cottage. Guests can wonder up to the rugged Rhinog Mountains or meander down through the village, which is about a mile from the farm, then on to the miles of sandy beaches that we have in this part of North Wales.

The village provides all the basic needs for our guests. There’s a small grocery store, an excellent butchers, a post office, a garage and two cafés. If you want more choice a 15-minute journey in the car will take you to the bustling seaside town of Barmouth. A 15-minute drive to the north will take you to the renowned castle town of Harlech. Both towns have a slightly larger selection of shops, cafes and restaurants.

This part of north wales is of course famous for outdoor activities. You can be zip lining at 100mph eighty feet above the ground in the morning and exploring historic slate caverns one mile below ground in the afternoon. Spend one-day white water rafting down the fierce Tryweryn River and the next climbing up the steep slopes of Wyddfa (Snowdon). You might prefer to throw yourself down the testing mountain biking trails of Coed Y Brenin or you might prefer a more relaxing day riding the narrow gauge Ffestiniog Steam train up to Tan Y Bwlch. The worlds your lobster here in Eryri (Snowdonia)!

My husband and I had a lovely stay at Melin-Byrdir. The location was really peaceful and we loved seeing all of the animals. The hot tub was really enjoyable, it did take a few hours to heat up but is a rewarding experience. The welcome pack of freshly laid eggs and lemon drizzle cake were a really lovely touch and delicious! The stairs are a challenge to use but this is clearly stated at booking so just to be aware if you have mobility issues. Thank you for a lovely stay x

Our third stay at Melin-Byrdir. Great views, peaceful and private. Lovely hosts.
Good base for the Rhinogs and beach. Harlech Castle up the coast, slate mines nearby for rainy day. Train service up and down the coast with station nearby.


Fantastic stay in the barn, the view from the bed & the hot tub are both incredible. We had a great weekend and will be returning. P.S The lemon drizzle cake was delicious!


Great place for a weekend away for two. The lemon cake was a lovely welcome and the place has everything needed for a few days.
Hot tub is a great addition, you get a feeling of accomplishment when the water gets up to temperature and you get to enjoy. Be warned it can take up to 3 hours to get to temp in winter using at least 2 bags of logs (you must keep it roaring).
Great location to see the stars – dark enough to see the full milky way from the hot tub one evening.


A fabulous cosy cottage in a lovely secluded setting with views to die for. Thanks for the lovely welcome too!

Delightful hideaway cottage for two in a tranquil, peaceful location with fantastic views of the hills. We enjoyed sitting on the sunny patio terrace in the evening watching the sunset and waiting for the hot tub to heat up. No need to use the car if you like walking and cycling. Nearby Barmouth and Harlech towns not far by car. Wonderful walk along beach to Barmouth and return train back to Dyffryn. Would recommend taking good food supplies if you wish to avoid too many trips to the village shop down a one mile steep hill return!
