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.

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.

Guest Reviews


We had a lovely 3 days at Byrdir, small but ideal for a couple. We were very comfortable. Harlech Castle well worth a visit and went on walks in Beddgelert and Dolgelau. Our 3 days were finished off at Norbar and the food was fantastic.
Hope to visit again soon.

To say we enjoyed our stay at Stabal-Bydir is an understatement. We had a gloriously sunny private patio to sit on with wonderful views. The cottage itself had everything we needed with a large comfortable bed, a big plus for me and a good shower in an ensuite bathroom.
Our hosts had provided a delicious homemade lemon drizzle cake and eggs from their hens who will introduce themselves to you as they saunter around the gardens.
The information and local maps provided were really useful and helped us find a stunning beach we would otherwise have missed.
We enjoyed our stay here so much that we have booked a return visit in 3 months time.

We have just returned from spending a lovely weekend staying in the Stabal-Byrdir cottage. A beautiful cottage, comfortable and peaceful. We were grateful for fine weather to be able to walk to and along Dyffryn beach and also visit Portmeirion and Harlech, and at the end of the day relax in the garden and enjoy the views from the cottage. Louise is a fantastic host and similarly to other guests we very much enjoyed her lemon drizzle cake.

Stabal-Byrdir is a super cottage in a great location at the foot of the Rhinog hills. We were able to walk direct from the cottage which was a very warm and welcoming place to return to at the end of the day. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped and has wonderful sea views from the outdoor seating. We will return, hopefully with better weather.

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.

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

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

Pam and Colin Palmer

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.
