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 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 Snowdonia!

Great cottage, cosy, lovely garden, lots of visits from ducks, dogs, chickens. Wood fired hot tub was amazing. Takes a while to get going but worth it. Great walks from the cottage with no need to drive, check out ONS map.

What can I say, it was an amazing special place with beautiful views
from a fantastic barn with everything we needed for our stay. Cannot recommend
enough and looking forward to coming back.

Jess Oliver

My partner and I stayed here 10th – 14th March 2022 and we cannot recommend highly enough. Cottage was spotless, cosy and had everything we needed, the hot tub was an fantastic extra that we enjoyed every evening! Really beautiful scenery and such a tranquil place for a real rest. The cottage itself is about a 30/40min walk to the train station/corner shop (spar) and taxis are available. Final comment to agree with all the other comments regarding the lemon drizzle cake and eggs, they really are delicious! Thank you so much Louise, will certainly be back!

Susan Hodges

Lovely cottage. Fantastic Stay . Amazing views even though weather was very windy and wet. Hot tub was a real treat as was the lemon drizzle cake. Would return again.


Myself and my partner had the most lovely time at Melin Byrdir! The farm is absolutely gorgeous with the most lovely people there. We also loved the lemon drizzle cake and the fresh eggs which we used for breakfast! Would love to come again

Myself and my husband have just enjoyed a lovely relaxing 4 night break at this gorgeous little cottage. The property itself is beautifully decorated, cosy and has everything you need to hand. The views are breathtaking and the hot tub was a wonderfully relaxing, it took us a day to get it going but easy to keep heated once we got the hang of it.
Thank you Louise for the welcome basket and the lemon drizzle cake it was absolutely delicious. We can highly recommend this cottage and we will definitely be returning. We are literally driving down away from the cottage and both me and my husband are very sad to be leaving. In his words “this is my new favourite place”.

A beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. So peaceful. On top of all that, lemon drizzle cake to die for

Clare Cater

Another lovely stay at Byrdir, think this was our 3rd visit. The cottage has everything you need and is warm and comfortable with incredible views of the countryside and the beaches stretched out in front of you. The area has plenty to offer and we’ve done different things each time we’ve visited. Thank you to Louise and family and animals for a warm welcome as always. Hope to see you again soon

Just returned from a wonderful week at Melin-Byrdir, taking in the fabulous sunsets from the private garden area on most days. There were also great views from the bedroom, looking out of the top window of the cottage.
So many places to visit from here, like Barmouth, Abersoch and Dolgellau, plus the stunning waterfall in the next village.
