Small Barn Cottage

The best thing about Small Barn?  Lots of extra space to chill out in the sun room with views to the Snowdonia mountains

Small Barn  is a spacious 4 star holiday let near Dolgellau and Barmouth in Snowdonia, North Wales.  The lovely slate-floored sun room has comfy sofas where you can relax and enjoy views across the Mawddach Estuary – often described as one of the most beautiful in Wales.

Small Barn has been newly refurbished in a cosy country cottage style.  The house provides modern self-catering facilities and accommodation for 2 – 4 people in a traditional building and outstanding location. There is direct access to the Mawddach Estuary and Trail through our fields – it’s a great place to bring your bike, camera or dog!

Despite its name, Small Barn is actually the most spacious self-catering let here at Graig Wen.  The large lounge has a  37″ flat screen TV with Freeview channels, DVD, or you can enjoy the views quietly from the separate sun room.  There is free wifi. The well equipped kitchen opens onto the lounge so you can socialise while you cook – and the dishwasher takes the strain!  The two bedrooms are set out with one double bed and 2 single beds with colourful Welsh wool throws.

Outside there is a fenced in decking area with seating and there’s 45 acres of beautiful meadows and woods to wander.  Small Barn self-catering accommodation belongs to our neighbours Clare and Ian, who welcome guests to their family holiday home.
