Barn | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Moelfre, named after the mountain behind the cottage, is a one bedroom barn conversion on a working welsh hill farm. I hope you’ll agree when I say they’re nicely furnished and decorated. We’re certainly very proud with the way they’ve turned out.
Using craftsmen from the village to completely refurbish an old barn, has meant that we’ve been able to use as much local and natural material as possible. Adam and Nick did most of the structural work including laying the slate tiles on the heated floor. Mike, a carpenter from the village, hand carved the oak beams and glazed gable end. Whilst Charlie and Rich, two brothers and friends of ours, did a brilliant job of the external granite stone work. (I was allowed to help with the backbreaking but unskilled work of fetching the stones from the fields.)
We’ve arranged the barn with a ‘grogloft’ or sleeping deck up in the eaves of the barn. The skylight up there has a fantastic view over the farm, Moelfre and the Rhinog Mountains. We’ve tried to include everything you’ll need such as a combination oven, hob and dishwasher. The underfloor heating provides more than enough heat but we’ve also installed a cast iron log burner to help create that romantic atmosphere. The french doors open to a view of the Cambrian coast and the Llyn Peninsula on the distant horizon.

During the summer months we also try and persuade our guests in Moelfre to join our B&B guests for a complimentary cooked breakfast every morning. It gives us a chance to say hello and perhaps talk about the best activities and locations in and around the farm.

We are a working farm so always glad to receive any help with feeding the animals or just the never ending task of throwing a stick for our border collie.

The North Wales region
All the attractions associated with Snowdonia are close by. Historic castle and golf course in Harlech, narrow gauge steam railways in Porthmadog and Talyllyn, slate and copper mines in Bleuna and Beddgelert as well as more adventurous pursuits like kite surfing, white water rafting and mountain biking etc. Let me know what you fancy and I'll point you in the right direction.
Moelfre is on the grounds of our farm here at Byrdir where we also run a small B&B. During the summer months, when the B&B is open, we'll try and persuade you to join us for a cooked breakfast in the main farmhouse. Although you're naturally free to stay in bed and cater for yourselves if you prefer. There are lots of other advantages to staying here on the farm. It'll give you a chance to get involved in things like feeding the pigs, collecting the chicken eggs and meeting the ducks. Throwing a stick for our border collie, Dell, seems to be the favorite pastime of most of our guest however. Great views in every direction. Views over the Cambrian Coastline and its sandy beaches a mile to the west, Snowdon and her friends are to the north and you are naturally encouraged to explore the rugged Rhinnog Mountains that climb up behind the cottage to the east.
