Bryncaled is a two bedroom barn conversion near Chwilog a beautiful and rural part of the Llyn peninsula. The sun was shining and the neighboring farmer was haymaking when we visited the cottage, so I think we saw it at its idyllic best.
Recently renovated this old stone cottage has been well designed and laid out. Its original stone exterior belies the up to date facilities within. A large bright kitchen-diner boasts a modern fully fitted kitchen as well as fantastic views over the surrounding fields and the mountains beyond.
The lounge is equally spacious. A comfortable 3 piece suit faces onto a renovated stone fireplace and chimney breast The original wooden beams and real wood flooring adds character and warmth to the room.
The adjoining hallway leads initially to the bathroom. Well laid out once again, with a shower over bath. Two bedrooms in total. One twin and one double. So perfect for small families but the price means it’s not unreasonable for two.
There is one farmhouse nearby but apart from that Bryncaled is surrounded by green fields on all sides. The area is a stronghold for the welsh language and the cottage offers a true taste of rural Wales. The village of Chwilog is just over a mile away. The village has one pub, The Madryn, a post office and small corner shop for papers etc. The popular harbor town of Pwllheli and its boating marina is 5 miles away and the very fashionable seaside town of Abersoch a little further on again.
These seaside destinations are a must for all guest naturally. (Don’t forget to try the ice cream at ‘Cydwaladers’ when you get to Criccieth.) But the real advantage of staying in this cottage is the fact that the mountains of Snowdonia are also so accessible. Snowdon itself is only a short drive away and the area now offers an abundance of activities for all.
Centres for white water rafting, mountain biking and rock climbing are fast making Snowdonia the in place for adrenaline junkies. More leisurely and cultural pastimes are also available naturally. The area is littered with historic monuments and castles. Criccieth is the nearest, with Caernarfon and Conwy castle all within an hours drive. The gardens at Bodnant are also well worth a visit as are the art galleries in Llanbedrog and Llangefni.

"Just stayed here with the family over the Bank Holiday weekend and it was fantastic. The cottage is great, loads of room for all of us (2 adults and 2 teenagers), great kitchen/diner and lovely comfy beds in the bedrooms. The cottage is very well kitted out with everything you would need except food & drink. The location is great, nice and quiet but close to Snowdonia and the coast. We did Snowdon on the Saturday and had a great long weekend. We will be recommending it and hopefully coming back soon. I just wished we lived a bit closer!"

"We had a lovely stay at Bryn Caled. It was as good as it looked on the website, modern and comfortable. We also were pleasantly surprised to find we had a back garden with picnic table and washing line where we were only overlooked by the cows in the neighbouring field!"
Ruth Owen, Llangollen
"We spent 2 very enjoyable weeks at Bryncaled.The cottage was superb. Snowdon was a must. We went on a clear sunny day , so the views from the top were stunning. I would recommend pre booking your railway tickets. We had a 3 hour wait at the station. We passed the time by driving to Bangor to suss out the golf course."
Anyone like us who enjoys playing golf will find this a good central base. We played 7 rounds at 7 different courses.
We have already recommended Bryncaled to several friends.
"Lovely conversion in a very peaceful setting – yet with a wide range of things to do within easy reach. We enjoyed having the cows as close neighbours, and also climbing the hill behind the cottage – fantastic views of the coast and Snowdonia."
"Bryn Caled is a little gem! The barn conversion has been carried out with attention to detail, modern, spotlessly clean, with everything you could need, yet still retains the character of the old building. The rural location is so quiet and peaceful, but is within easy reach of Pwllhei ( and the new Asda supermarket) and the beautiful surrounding beaches, Abersoch and Morfa Nefyn in particular. The owner, Arwel, called to see if everything was to our satisfaction, very friendly and helpful. I thanked him for the delicious scones baked by his wife, then pointed out that a pint of milk to make a cup of tea to go with them would have been very much appreciated after our long journey! Also, although the hangers in the wardrobes were nice wooden ones, there were no trouser hangers. I see after reading the visitors book that Arwel has implemented previous guests’ requests, I hope he does so again! We would definitely holiday here again, thank you for an enjoyable stay."
