Near BeachFarm StayEV Charger

This luxury one bedroom studio cottage on a working farm combines comfortable accommodation with the rural charm of country life. A private patio and lawn has uninterrupted views across the farm down towards the sea and the distant flash Bardsey lighthouse. Internally, modern facilities sit along side some of the original features of this converted stable. The convenience of modern living with echoes of the past.

A stone step from the patio leads guests into an open plan living area. Tall vaulted ceilings and whitewashed walls give a great sense of light and space. Exposed stone around the original windows and a hardwood floor provides that feeling of character and quality. To the right of the room the living area includes a luxurious leather sofa which sits in front of a lovely living flame fire mounted on a welsh slate hearth.

To the left a modern fitted kitchen includes a combination oven, electric hob and dishwasher. A traditional welsh dresser sits along side the kitchen housing the blue china that is so popular in so many welsh homes. A small dining table and chairs sits in front of a deep set window with that fantastic sea view.

The style and character of the living room continues through into the bedroom. Again, deep set windows provide some great views in the morning when you throw the curtains open. A comfortable super king sized bed and general peace and tranquillity ensures a good nights sleep. The adjoining en-suite bathroom is immaculately decorated and houses a simple white bathroom suite including a large shower cubicle with power shower.

Floor Plans




Stabal-Byrdir is one of three cottages set within an old stable block on the farm but a well thought out layout ensures each cottage has its own private access and garden area. Stabal-Byrdir’s garden, arguably, having the best view of the three. There are lots of walking routes right from your front door and some wonderful sandy beaches just over a mile away.

The farm itself is located a mile above the village of Dyffryn Ardudwy. There are two small cafes in the village. also a very good butchers, Spar shop, post office and garage so all the essentials are covered. For a wider range of shops and restaurants guests might want to travel 5 miles south to the popular seaside town of Barmouth. 5 miles to the north is the historic castle town of Harlech. The larger towns of Porthmadog and Dolgellau are 30 mins away to the North and South respectively.

Eryri (Snowdonia) is fast becoming a hot spot for adventure activities. Adrenaline fuelled days out at the Tryweryn White Water, Zip World and Coed Y Brenin mountain biking centre. But more traditional pastimes continue to be popular. A visit to Portmeirion village is recommended as is a trip on the Welsh Highland Railway or a day visiting the pet farm at Llanystumdwy.

Super location with fantastic views and a fun drive up narrow road to farm.Loved the lemon drizzle cake and the eggs were great for breakfast.

Lloyd McGeoch-Williams

Lovely cosy cottage with sea views. Great spot to explore this area. Very clean and well equipped. Wouldn’t hesitate to use Dioni again.

Leisa Bowen

What a wonderful place to stay! First of all good directions which we found first time.  A beautiful and quiet peaceful place. Cottage spotlessly clean with all you could need in the kitchen. A wonderful welcome pack. Home produced lemon drizzle cake which was delicious and home produced eggs from the chickens. A wonderfully comfortable bed – huge!! The bathroom and shower was also clean and lovely to return back to after a busy day out. The view from cottage was stunning. Looking over fields and to the sea. Local wildlife making an appearance as well!! 5 stars a definite!!

Yet another lovely stay at Stabal-Byrdir. Thankyou for your hospitality, Gwion and Louise

Lovely modernised cottage with wonderful views. Many thanks to Louise for the eggs and lovely lemon cake. I agree with other comments about an armchair but also the need for a small saucepan. Didn’t enjoy running the gauntlet of the narrow lane but apart from this it was perfect.


The venue was perfect.
A quiet escape in the countryside.
The cottage is finished to a wonderful spec with everything you need. Spotlessly clean.
Welcome pack of essentials, including eggs from the farm and a freshly baked cake was a lovely surprise – and delicious.
Definitely recommend this accommodation without a doubt.


A beautiful location if you want peace and quiet… What can I say… We have been staying at Byrdir for several years now, we come back at least once a year…we have stayed in different cottages but this is our favourite… You can walk from the door out into the hills and a few minutes drive and your on the amazing beaches, accommodation is modern fixtures but traditional style… Cosy and warm very clean and tidy … We will always come back here just because it’s a brilliant base to go on adventures…
Got to also recommend the Norbar, a brilliant bar and seafood restaurant…..
Thanks Louise and Gwion for another great holiday and see you again very soon xx

We stayed for a week at Stabal-Byrdir. We were fortunate with the weather so saw Snowdonia at its best. Bodnant Gardens and Powis Castle are worth a visit especially during spring. Locally Llandanwg beach is great and also the beach cafe. Among the sand dunes is St Tanwg’s Church. Tha Hafan Artro Hotel and pub in Llanbedr have a varied pub menu at reasonable prices. The cottage is ideal for anyone with mobility problems being all on one level. The cottage is set among a small group of converted farm buildings, has its own private garden with views towards the sea. We enjoyed Louis’s drizzle cake and free range eggs. Hope to return very soon.

We have really enjoyed our stay in Stabal Byrdir. The cottage is very well equipped and is warm and comfortable to return to after a day out in the mixed conditions we experienced in April. It is set in a beautiful location with very easy access to the Rhinogydd hills. We found some excellent walks from the cottage. We strongly recommend the ice cream in Harlech. We are already planning to return
