Lovely barn with plenty of space and facilities. Situated in a lovely quiet village with lots to do only a short drive away.
Myself and 9 of my friends stayed at Ysgubor Glandwr for a long weekend in July for a birthday celebration and were very lucky with the weather! On arrival we found a lovely welcome package, cupboards stacked with all essentials, toiletries in the bathrooms and a shed full of activities such as cricket, kayaks, bikes, tennis, BBQ - you don't need to bring anything! With us being a large party, there was plenty of space to spread out, from the two living rooms to the 2 outside seating areas, along with 2 full bathrooms. There are 4 bedrooms; two singles and 2 doubles (one with en suite), in addition to this the second living room had 2 sofa beds and 2 Z beds - plenty of choice.
The location was stunning, watching the sun set from the back garden each night was particularly special and there were lots of scenic walks to go on straight from the house. Just a short drive away was Bala town where we shopped and a lovely spot on Bala lake where you could have a dip - this we took full advantage of. There was also a very nice local pub with really nice pub food just a 10 minute walk down the road from the barn which catered for all our party including vegan and gluten free!
We would 100% recommend this barn to anyone looking to have a relaxing weekend with family or friends, plenty for everyone to do and a really beautiful place in an absolutely beautiful location.
What a beautiful barn, the owners have thought of everything to make the stay there truly a home away from home. Everything within the barn, from bedding, towels, furniture etc is all of the highest quality. The barn was immaculate and views you could never get bored of!!
The barn was immaculately clean and was a great base for us! We loved it so much we spent more time at the barn than we did exploring Wales!!
There is not much within walking distance to the barn, apart from the train that takes you Into Bala (would reccomend) but Bala is only a ten minute drive!
The drive to he barn over the mountains is amazing!! Sheer drops into valleys that provided amazing scenes! If you are a walker it is heaven!
We will definitely be back!!
We had a fantastic weekend in this amazing converted barn. Comfortable, luxurious, spotlessly clean and spacious enough for 9 of us plus 2 dogs, we could happily have just stayed in the whole weekend as everything has been thought of.....we have never been to a such a well-equipped holiday home! It was a relaxing couple of days spent exploring the stunning, local area (we all loved the fact that we didn't have to get in the car to go on long, rambling walks with the dogs) and playing the large array of games - our five children (14 years and above) particularly loved the galleried games room! A massive big thank you, Katy!
