About The Hay Barn

The Hay Barn is ideal for people who want to escape from a stressful day-to-day routine somewhere with sea views, easy access to beaches and plenty of character. The former farm building is on the doorstep of Nefyn Bay on the north of the Llyn Peninsula. It has been transformed to create a luxurious two-bedroom cottage with stylish features that include solid timber flooring, original granite walls and very comfortable furnishings. The two-bedroom cottage is ideal for couples and families but can also accommodate two couples thanks to its flexible layout.

The Llyn Peninsula is spectacular. The views are incredible in every season whether you are walking along the Wales Coast Path or sunning yourself on one of its many beautiful beaches. Cycling, golf and fishing are three more ways to enjoy being in this pristine landscape, as are swimming, kayaking, jet skiing and waterskiing.

Visitors have their pick of sandy beaches so you can plan your day to suit the weather and your mood. The cottage sits on Nefyn Bay, with Nefyn Beach protected by a stunning headland and giving views to The Rival Mountains on a sunny day. It's also dog-friendly with dogs allowed at the eastern end all year round. Pwllheli is the region's main town boasting two beaches as well as an excellent variety of amenities and a lovely seafront promenade. Borth-y-Guest is next to a fishing village with charming Victorian properties and views as far as Mount Snowdon, while the squeaky sand at Porth Oer (Whistling Sands) results from a phenomenon only found on one other beach in Europe. Alternative beaches include Aberdaron, Porth Lago and Llandbedrong, while Criccieth has two Blue Flag beaches and a castle.

The Hay Barn is around a half hour's drive from Caernarfon Castle, which is still majestically imposing centuries after its construction. It's also only a 30-minute drive from the charming Italianate village of Portmeirion and the lovely harbour town of Porthmadog, while the foot of Mount Snowdon and the Snowdon Mountain Railway is easily accessible for a day out.

If you desire peace, tranquillity and uninterrupted time with your family and friends then the Llyn Peninsula is perfect for you. The Hay Barn is one of a collection of luxury self-catering cottages on the estate, each of which can be booked independently or together to accommodate groups of extended families or friends on holiday. Please see the owner's site for more information.

Accommodation Comprises:

Original rustic features have been restored and combined with modern comforts in this charming stone cottage which has accommodation over two levels.


  • A spacious entrance hall welcomes guests on their arrival, providing space to relieve themselves of coats and walking shoes.
  • Light-filled living area with zones for relaxing, eating and cooking. Exposed oak beams stand as a testament to the building's age, while the sleek kitchen brings it firmly into the 2020s.
  • Living area with leather sofas, a TV with a DVD player and a choice of books for guests to enjoy during their stay. The colour and texture of an original granite wall contrast beautifully with the timber flooring and fresh white walls in the rest of the room.
  • Dining table with seating for six people.
  • Fitted kitchen with integrated appliances and lots of space to store and prepare food. A half-glazed door opens from the kitchen to the rear of the cottage.
  • Tiled shower room with a walk-in shower, WC and a handbasin.


  • Luxurious touches continue upstairs where there are two spacious bedrooms separated by a Jack and Jill bathroom.
  • Master bedroom with a king-sized bed against a backdrop of an original granite wall. A wardrobe and chest of drawers provide ample storage, and there are also bedside tables and reading lights.
  • Second bedrooms with a super-kingsized (6ft-wide) bed that can be converted into two single beds if required - please inform the owner of your preference when booking.
  • Bathroom with a deep bath, heated towel rail, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: The cottage faces a shared central courtyard where there is bench seating and also has a private terrace with a table and chairs for outdoor meals. There is allocated parking nearby.
