Luxury Two Bedroom Holiday Cottage with Hot Tub and Sea Views | Y-Ddol

Dog FriendlyNear BeachHot TubReal FireEV Charger

Y-Ddol, a luxury two bedroom holiday cottage with hot tub and sea views is a beautiful, modern barn conversion set in-between Harlech and Barmouth making it perfectly located for exploring Eryri (Snowdonia). Slate floors and minimalist interior give this holiday cottage an ultra modern feel and the floor to ceiling windows with sea views give it that unique and very special point of difference.

As you come into the open-plan kitchen, diner and sitting room, the vaulted ceilings and chic furniture give a real sense of space. The underfloor heating and log burner provide warmth, and add to the inviting and cosy feel of the cottage. To the far right is the sitting room area where you’ll find the all important sea views along with the log burner, comfortable sofas and large TV. The oversized lampshades and over hanging lamps are a really great touch as are the splashes of colour from the beautiful vases and soft furnishings.

The warm slate tiles continue through into the kitchen dining area and are beautifully complimented by high gloss white kitchen units. A central island adds character as does the wooden lighting beam above it. The dining table and chairs are all in keeping with the rest of the room with their modern minimalistic design.

From the kitchen, we continue through to the bedroom area. A double and a twin; both beautifully finished and the backlit headboards would not look out of place in a swish boutique hotel. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower and continues with the slate grey theme of the rest of the house.

Outside is just as beautiful as inside! The wood burning hot tub is a fantastic feature and looks out onto the fields and the sea beyond. A spacious patio area with barbecue and seating will certainly be a place you locate to during the warm summer evenings and the hot tub will be used throughout the year; even in those colder winter months!

Floor Plans




Dyffryn Ardudwy is a great village set in between Barmouth and Harlech. There is a couple of convenience stores where you can get all your groceries; one of which is an award winning butchers.

15 mins to the south will bring to to Barmouth, a fantastic quintessential seaside town with a great mix of cafes and restaurants on the harbour and is great for a bit of retail therapy. A blue flag beach is great for swimming and days on the beach and the funfair is a great part of the traditional ‘Great British summer’ offering.

20 mins to the north will bring you to Porthmadog with the famous Portmeirion Village on the way. Access to the more traditional Snowdonia villages and the Llyn Peninsula are not far where you can enjoy a whole host of activities from climbing, canyoning, Zip World adventures or exploring the varied and beautiful landscape and history.

Yes, agree with other guests. Y-Ddol is very comfortable, spacious, warm, quiet, beautiful views and well-equipped. Beds lovely and provision has been made bathroom for toilet bags and there are plenty of hangers and space for clothing. Plenty to see and do in the surrounding towns and countryside. Very good Spar and butchers in Dffryn Ardudwy. Surrounding beaches clean and enormous and most have areas for dogs. We would recommend anyone to choose Y-Ddol for their holiday ad would certainly return. Coming from the South East it was very refreshing not to find potholes and every highway and lane very clean not a spec of rubbish anywhere. Clear the Welsh are proud of their country. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay Louise.

We spent a lovely week at Y Ddol. The house is quiet, comfortable and spacious and the view from the living room is beautiful, especially as the sun sets. We would highly recommend this house to anyone wishing to explore this area. It was always lovely to return to Y Ddol after a day by the beach or in the mountains.

The cottage is in a lovely quiet spot with great views out to the sand dunes and sea. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable. The welcome pack is a nice touch and the lemon cake was gorgeous. Lovely 25 min walk to beach and not far from Barmouth – Close to a bus stop and taxi options available. Great butchers at the Spa in the village. We love this area of Wales and have visited several times.
Now we have found Dioni we will definitely be booking with them again.

Lovely, comfortable cottage with lovely views. Log fire made it all the more cosy despite our rainy visit to the area. Would definitely recommend and look forward to visiting again.


Beautiful stay, enjoyed every minute of it. The house was lovely and warm and we loved the under floor heating. The view was spectacular from the floor to ceiling window we watched the sunset on most evenings. Perfect location and didn’t want to leave. We will most definitely be returning.


Hi, before my trip I searched on street view to get my barings but what I saw was an unconverted barn (whaaatttt, noooo!!!) but then realised the photo was from 2009 hahaha so when pulled up and saw this beautiful barn conversion, it is absolutely gorgeous (phew!!! 😅). The view of an open field, greenery and the sea on the horizon through the main window was lovely and watching the perfect sunset in the evening was amazing. The open plan set out was fab with under floor heating, the bedrooms and bathroom were great, and l especially liked seeing the stars at night through the skylight window in the main bedroom. It is a nice base to visit the surrounding areas from, a great little play park down the road, the beaches are long and beautiful, visited Barmouth and Harlech and it’s castle on Easter Sunday, climbed the vast number of steps of the two towers – omg my calves seized up for 1.5 days after (ouch) but that gave me an excuse to relax and enjoy this lovely home. Thanks for sharing Louise, will defo revisit again ❤️

Anwyl Louise,
Y-Ddol was a perfect property for us. My partner, Siân was in need of a complete getaway and relax, and we found that in your lovely barn conversion.
The view was stunning, constantly changing light with flocks of birds sweeping across to the feeding grounds as the tide went out.
The beach was ours for miles and a tasty Welsh lunch at the Victoria Inn made for a great day.
We can thoroughly recommend Y-Ddol….. we’re looking forward to returning!
Diolch yn fawr,
John and Siân


Had a lovely short stay at Y-DDOL. The accommodation is very cozy, all needs met and some beautiful scenery when looking out the floor to ceiling windows. Spoiled with gorgeous weather as well which I imagine is a bit of a rarity in this part of Wales in October! Would happily stay here again.

Y Ddol was a beautiful barn conversion with no expense spared in its construction. The underfloor heating was wonderful and the log burner was lovely on the days when it poured down. The bedrooms were big enough but lacked the storage space mentioned by other guests. They could also do with small bins in the bedrooms. The shower in the bathroom was amazing but one toilet roll between 4 guests didnt last long.The grounds around it were very well tended. All in all it was lovely accommodation.
October wasnt the best month to visit Dyffryn Ardudwy. First of all, it rained the whole time we were there but that’s how it goes. The only shop open in the village was Spar which had most of what we needed and a nice butcher attached. The fish and chip shop was closed and there was no pub so we had to drive to find both. There was very little open in Barmouth until the Friday – the day before we came home. We spent the week struggling to find somewhere to eat as we didnt really want to cook as it was our holiday. Even the fish and chip shops in Barmouth were closed until the end of the week and most restaurants were closed during the week. The best meal we had was in a seafood restaurant called Norbar which was only open on the Thursday and Friday. We found that Porthmadog was a nice place to get food and gifts but it was quite a track.

The best time to visit Dyffryn Ardudwy is during the summer months when everything is open.

Lovely house. Quiet lane. No pubs in the village as stated in the website and in the house! Easy drive to next village to get to pubs. I agree with other comments about nowhere to put your toilet bag or anything in the bathroom. If there are four of you there is very little space for clothing. No drawers just hanging rails with a few hangers. We were just two and used the second bedroom as a dressing room which meant we could move around our room without cases everywhere.
Lovely location and very clean.
