Holiday Cottage in Wild Snowdonia | Ysgubor-Goch

Near SnowdonReal FireFarm Stay

This beautiful barn has been converted into a very handsome holiday cottage in wild Snowdonia. A rugged farm track leads you up through a disused slate quarry and the mountains of Snowdonia to a haven of peace and tranquillity. Here a traditional welsh long barn as well as the main farmhouse nearby provides idyllic holiday accommodation for guests wanting to escape the hassle of modern life.

The barn has 4 bedrooms and can comfortably sleep up to 8 people. The conversion is imaginative and well thought out. Bedrooms are spacious and the open plan design of the living area creates a wonderfully sociable environment.

From the entrance hallway we turn left into the living area. This huge open plan area comprises lounge, dining and kitchen areas. The lounge houses some comfortable leather sofas, a modern flat screen TV as well as a warming log fire. Overhead a suspended walkway connects the first floor bedrooms whilst preserving the sense of space afforded by vaulted ceilings.

The dining area comes next. A wooden table surrounded by eight country cottage chairs is overlooked by a traditional welsh dresser. And from here we walk through to the kitchen area. All the appliances you could ask for are included. Fridge, freezer, dishwasher etc. are all there. The washer dryer is housed in the adjoining utility room.

Returning across the entrance hallway we have a very spacious ground floor twin room. The adjoining bathroom with shower and wc ensures that any guests with mobility problems can be comfortably accommodated.

An open tread wooden staircase takes us to the three first floor bedrooms. One double room and one twin room occupy the southern end of the barn. That suspended walkway then takes us across to another spacious double bedroom and a luxurious bathroom. The bathroom has a wc, bath and separate shower cubicle. All the bedrooms are immaculately clean and tidy and a modern central heating system ensures guests feel warm and cosy even in the depths of winter.

There is also a great games room with pool table, table football and a giant connect four.

A short 3 minute drive will bring you to lake Cwellyn car park. The famous Snowdon Ranger path up Snowdon starts here. This westerly route up the mountain is often favoured by more experience walkers to the busier eastern routes on the other side of the mountain.

A little further is the next village of Rhyd Ddu. Another pub, another route up Snowdon plus the opportunity to jump on the Welsh Highland Railway, a narrow gauge steam railway that runs between the larger towns of Porthmadog and Caernarfon, along, what must be, one of the most picturesque railway routes in the world.

Caernarfon is about 6 miles away from the cottage to the North (15 mins in the car). The famous castle is a natural ‘must do’ but lots of shops, cafes and restaurants are also there. 15 miles to the south is the bustling seaside town of Porthmadog. Again, plenty of shopping opportunities as well as the popular sandy beaches of Borth Y Guest and Black Rock.

The fastest zip line in the world, internationally renowned white water rafting and premier down hill mountain biking are just some of the more adrenaline enducing activities also available in the area.

A beautiful cottage, in an idyllic setting: the whole of Snowdon on the doorstep one way, and only a 15 minute drive to Caernarfon the other. Lovely people, including the helpful and friendly cottage owner. The cottage itself was very warm, well-equipped and spotlessly clean. Many thanks for a lovely holiday.


Lovely cottage, everything that you would need for a fantastic stay. Warm, cosy and extremely clean. Lovely walks right from the front door. The games room was a hit with the children. Would definitely stay again. Excellent communication with owners.


We had a fantastic family holiday in the Cottage. It is very spacious, spotlessly clean and perfect for a family get together. Sure you have to drive a couple of minutes along a bumpy track but this isn’t a problem and the pay back is a stunning and isolated setting. The weather was fantastic during our stay so we didn’t use the log burner but I could imagine this would be a real bonus to return to a cosy fire in the winter months. I don’t know if Wi-fi in the area has been upgraded but we found it to very good during our stay. We would definitely return.

I stayed here for the second time to attempt Snowdon. There was 8 of us and the cottage has plenty of space to accommodate us. I love the open space and log fire and hot tub. Bad weather stopped me attempting snowdon for the second time but we had a lovely walk around the lake in Llanberis! Fantastic location and beautiful, clean, spacious cottage! Will definitely return for a third time next year! Thanks!

If you want to “get away from it all” for a peaceful break with your immediate family or a few friends, then this is the place for you. The cottage is a converted barn that has been beautifully renovated in a naturally beautiful, and slightly remote, part of North Wales. Despite this, you are only 20 minutes from Caernarvon, with all the attractions it has to offer. The cottage is well furnished, and the beds very comfortable. The open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area suited us perfectly, as it allowed us to converse no matter what we were doing. We had a fabulous weekend there – and I could see myself wanting to go back for a longer stay.

Lovely cottage, very quiet and clean in the middle of the hills. Fitted out well and very comfortable. Wi-fi ok but you are in the mountains so you shouldn’t expect too much. Lots of walks from the property. Owners very helpful

We rented this cottage for my 50th Birthday weekend. 8 adults had plenty of space in this lovely cottage. The open plan area was lovely for just hanging out. The log burner is really effective as despite open plan high ceilings the rooms warm up really quickly. Really well equipped, the washer drier was very handy after a wet day in the hills. The owner, Bethan, popped up to see us and try to sort a Wifi problem, it was a little hit and miss but certainly did not detract from a lovely weekend and location. Would certainly go back again..
