Romantic One Bedroom Barn Conversion Near Barmouth | Melin-Byrdir

Near BeachHot TubFarm Stay

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, two cafés and two pubs both serving food. 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!

Guest Reviews

Clare and Paul

We have stayed in two cottages on this farm. This one is our favourite, the cottage is cosy and snug, ocean views from the cottage and bedroom are stunning. There’s a fair outside space for relaxing and eating. Fresh farms eggs and homemade cake on arrival for guests are a treat. Two adorable dogs come and go, we didn’t use the hot tub or the wood stove on this occasion but they looked so inviting. The location made for a perfect cycling and walking holiday. Thank you

Louisa and David

Melin-Byrdyr is a little piece of paradise! The location is stunning- sitting in the hot tub with the mountain in one direction and sea views in another is going to be a happy memory for life.
The cottage itself is beautifully designed and decorated and super cosy on the wet evenings we had! We loved it so much that we stayed an extra night, and can’t wait to come back again in the future.
Thank you

We had a wonderful time at Melin Byrdir, so tranquil with views that linger in the mind. We have been coming to Wales for 50 years and have now found another area to explore and experience. With the sea to the front and the Rhinogs behind there are few places in Wales that can match it. The cottage was lovely in all aspects and has charm and character with comfort , outside area was great as well with the hot tub and garden with those views. All in all Dioni more than met my expectations they exceeded them ! We will be booking with Dioni in 2022 ! Thank you so much Anthea and Nick .



A fantastic relaxing break at this beautiful cottage. The cottage had everything we could ask for and it was lovely and warm. The hot tub was a highlight! Thank you Louise, we will definitely be booking again.

Stayed there in March 2020 for my wife\’s birthday and our 25th wedding anniversary.
Everything you need for a short break. When the weather is good it must be a lovely walk across the fields and along the coast road down into Barmouth, it wasnt for us but it was March.
We are looking at making another booking and really hope Pauline the pig is still around to greet us

Alex Rowley

Absolutely stunning. Looking out over the Welsh coast while sitting in a hot tub with a glass of wine is a feeling I will not forget anytime soon.
