Description from owner


Ysgubor Glandwr is a luxury barn conversion that lies within Snowdonia National Park, boasting beautiful views, four bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 living spaces, dining area, large open plan kitchen, games room with pool table, utility room and separate toilet.

Situated in Llanuwchllyn, a traditional village bordering Bala Lake it provides an excellent base and central location for outdoor recreational activities and a peaceful tranquil retreat with unspoilt countryside views to include the Arenig Mountains.

A recent, sympathetically converted luxury barn, it offers accommodation for up to 8-10 guests comfortably. With a wealth of communal space, the double height living area combines the first sitting/ family room, dining area, kitchen, and games room with a pool table on the first floor level. In addition to the four bedrooms (one with ensuite bathroom), there is a double bed settee upstairs, a large family bathroom, additional toilet with basin and a large utility area for any four legged friends looking to get dry after a long day out walking and swimming in the lake. There is underfloor heating throughout and fires within each living area. Entertainment is provided with a large 3-D television, DVD library, games console & board games.

Outside the barn there is outside seating, use of a BBQ and ample on site car parking and storage for bikes. There are a range of facilities and walks within close proximity to the barn, we provide a full activity pack including walking guides to help you explore the best that the area has to offer. Within a 5 minute walk you can reach Rheilffordd Llyn Tegid (The Bala Lake Railway) which is a delightful 9 mile return journey by steam locomotive alongside Bala Lake, taking in the spectacular views of Snowdonia National Park.

Please note unfortunately we do not accept any hen/stag parties or single-sex groups.

Reviewed 27 Dec 2018

Returning home today after a fabulous Christmas stay in this beautiful barn. It was decorated so nice for Christmas and felt so homely. It was more than big enough for us all (5A 2C) with ages ranging from 82 to 8 months and our 2 dogs loved the enclosed garden. We cooked Christmas dinner - everything there that we needed, large fridge/freezer to store the food and with underfloor heating it always felt cosy. The only problem for us (which wasn't property related) was that our little grandson was fine on arrival day but the day after totally covered in chicken pox and was then very poorly Christmas Eve, Day and Boxing day - which somewhat spoiled it as he's only 8 months old and was his first Christmas. Today we go home and he is much brighter but absolutely covered in spots. We would love to come back again. Thank you for allowing us to stay here. It's been amazing

Owner's reply: Hi Gail, We’re so pleased you enjoyed your stay over Christmas, hope your grandson is better now. Look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Katy

“Stunning scenery”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2017

We stayed in an spacious, luxurious property with plenty of room for 9 of us. My two boys practically had their own wing of the property. It had everything you could wish for and more. The area was very quiet with not an awful lot for the young children to do. A park or a playground would of kept them entertained. They did however enjoy playing pooh sticks in the stream behind the property. Bala itself is a lovely place to get some lunch and their is a small supermarket for any supplies you may need. We had a few nice days out to Snowden, Chester zoo and Barmouth. We would definatley visit again.

Owner's reply: So pleased you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you again soon. Katy

“Fantastic week away in North Wales”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2017

We had a fantastic week at Ysgubor Glandwr holiday barn. The accommodation is perfect for two families and has everything needed to keep everyone entertained. The kids loved the games room and the large outdoor space allowed plenty of room for them to run riot. The barn was extremely well stocked with a large array of essentials as well as a lovely welcome pack of chocolate and Prosecco. Nearby Bala is a great place to eat/drink or shop. The old steam railway is a great way to get there and the main start point is 1 minute from the barn. We also went to zip world and did the velocity experience. Would highly recommend this to any adrenaline junkies. Overall we had a fantastic week and the weather was also kind which made it all the more enjoyable. The owners are very helpful and the accommodation very well looked after. We hope to return again in the near future.

Owner's reply: Hi Brent, Thankyou for your kind review, we try to make the barn as homely as possible so people can relax and enjoy there stay. Sounds like you had fun. Look forward to welcoming you again soon. Katy

“A fabulous barn in beautiful surroundings”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2014

Our group of 4 adults and 5 teenagers adored our time in this wonderful barn. The owners have obviously taken time and effort to make this such a warm and welcoming place to stay. Kelly was incredibly friendly and helpful with all our questions and the fantastic welcome basket on arrival was the perfect start to our holiday. It is huge,spotlessly clean, well equipped and beautifully furnished to a very high standard,with comfy sofas and huge TV's in all the living areas and xbox360,wii and playstation and board games provided for those rainy days. Our teens took over the games room upstairs and the pool table on arrival! It's so light and airy and the views are stunning. Even on a grey day the barn remained cosy and bright. We made use of the kayaks available and used the gas BBQ a few times and it was so easy to cook for our large group in the kitchen and great to have enough room to all sit together for a meal. If you have a dog, he will adore it, plenty of lovely walks from the property and a warm utility area to crash out in. Bala lake is great for watersports. We also took the stunning drive to Mt Snowden, which half of our group climbed while the other half went to the Padarn Country park which has lots to do. We also did white water rafting at the National white water centre in Frongoch, which is not far from Bala,which was great fun. We loved our week in North Wales and only did a fraction of the things we wanted to do. Even the few days of rain that we had didn't spoil our enjoyment and we didn't want to come home. We would definitely come again and hope that we are lucky enough to stay here again.

“Very well presented and equipped”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2014

I stayed here for my 40th Birthday. The house is stunning and very well equipped for adults and children. There are 4 good sized bedrooms, a big open plan kitchen/diner/lounge, a games room and a further big living room which has two sofa beds. Very tastefully furnished I was very pleased I had chose this property, and its better than the pictures. Locally there are a number of pubs as well as Bala Lake. We had a lovely meal at Tyd LLann which is a michellin star restaurant about 12 miles away. Actually it was an outstanding meal. We drove to LLandudno to take in the breathtaking scenery (about 40min drive) and we went to Snowdonia to do the worlds fastest zipwire at Zip world, then on the way back we went to the other zipworld to do Bounce Below (trampolines in a cave under a mountain). then for two nights we had a lovely BBQ at the property as well as cooking other items we had brought. I would highly recommend this property. just bring yourselves, your clothes and your toiletries. Absolutely everything else is provided.
