'Ysgubor is a beach lover’s paradise. One of the nicest and cleanest beaches in this part of North Wales is just a short walk away.'
Ysgubor is a converted 18th century granary, sleeping up to 8 in this 4 bedroomed self catering property.
From £460 - £909
Pastel painted garden furniture sits on a manicured lawn. Shaded from the midday sun by a clematis, hanging heavily on a nearby trellis. The borders are full of flowers and a noisy finch twitters angrily as I try to photograph it all for the website. I wonder if Sue and Richard, the owners, would mind sorting out our garden some time.
Ysgubor is a converted 18th century granary. The front door opens up onto a comfortable lounge with TV and hifi etc. The kitchen dinner has a country cottage feel and is well equipped. There’s also a large en-suite bedroom on the ground floor. Some beautiful antique furniture adds a touch of class to each room.
Upstairs there’s 3 more bedrooms plus a second bathroom. One large bedroom with 3 single beds and across the hall a very cute child’s bedroom leads onto the master bedroom. All the bedrooms upstairs benefit from large skylights which fill the room with soft light each morning.
Ysgubor is a beach lover’s paradise. One of the nicest and cleanest beaches in this part of North Wales is just a short walk away. For us and our two young children it was a daily pilgrimage. Buckets, spades, towels, sandwiches, lots of water, and then a short shuffle in our flip flops to the beach. Stopping only to send Dad back for the forgotten sun cream.
Lots of other things to to in the area as well. A selection of pubs and restaurant if you eventually tire of the BBQ in the garden. Historic castles and monuments are dotted everywhere on the map. Barmouth, a popular seaside town is 3 miles to the south and The Royal St Davids, a beautiful 18hole links golf course, is a short drive to the north. Finally the hills behind the village offer plenty of options for even the most enthusiastic walker.
"Our second holiday in Ysgubor has been even better than the first. The cottage was extremely comfortable and Sue and Richard very welcoming. The weather has been astounding which has made the holday exactly what we needed to relax. Thankyou also for the fabulous bread and cake. Loved by all. We hope to make it an annual trip as it’s such a child friendly place and with the beach on the doorstep all you need. Thankyou."

"Enjoyed our stay, but can be noisy upstairs on a windy night (and cold for the time of the year!- but the owners lent us an extra heater to keep us warm!).
We did raise the concern over the thin plate glass doors in the property – with two young children we had to pad them with spare duvets in case of an accident.
The homemade bread and cake was a very lovely touch – and a tasty one too!
"I would say in my bad English everything was above my expectations.. The owners Richard and Sue was very nice and very friendly.. they live next door but you see them once a day.. when they leave the site.. The Cottage is spot on, Wales bread delicious and cookies as well .. God my wife felt in love with them.. only 1 complain was the weather.. but i think Richard can’t do nothing with that… i would give 9 of 10 if they have barbecue… but i think it is minor issue… overall very nice cottage and we definitely will come back next year .. Good luck with business…"

"Had such a lovely week here. Great cottage, really suited my family even our toddlers who had so much fun in the garden watching the cows in the nearby fields and the sheep being sheared. The local beach was amazing so too was the surrounding countryside. Short walks to shops and pubs. Couldn’t have been better. We hope to return."
Rachel Qureshi, London
"It’s certainly a place for ‘making memories! A super week – enjoyed by three generations, our 3 year old grandaughter loved the walk to the beach, the garden and the animals in the field. We felt very much at home straightaway and very comfortable all week – kitchen was very well equipped, there was nothing missing!
We had a wonderful sunset barbecue on the beach – hardly anyone else there, lovely memories – especially as our son made a surprise visit from Australia to join us!"
Jean & Mike Nield, Chester
"We’ve had a lovely break here, during the autumn half term. This is a great location for beaches, mountain walking, and exploring Snowdonia. The cottage was a warm and comfortable retreat when the weather closed in."
Eirian and Chris, Oxford
"The cottage was lovely, and being met by a freshly baked loaf of bread and stack of cakes was a particularly nice surprise, which made us feel very welcome. Garden was perfect for BBQ, well equipped kitchen, and only a short walk from the beach. One of the bedrooms being v. small wasn´t ideal for a group of 4 couples, however the owners did inform us of this when booking. All in all v nice."
Sally Guscott, Bristol
"Although we came equiped, it was nice to find tea, sugar and milk ready to make a cup of tea (normally the cupboard is bare) this together with fresh bread and home-made cakes made for a lovely welcome. Pretty garden area and pleasant, clean, comfortable cottage. Short distance to Harlech and Barmouth for gift shopping and beautiful beach.
As the cottage is advertised as disability accessible, I would like to make a small suggestion for a seat or stool in the downstairs shower."
Elizabeth and family, Lathom
"Had a lovely relaxing break. Great for the kids. Beach is fantastic and the cottage was lovely. Would love to come back for a longer stay."
Emma Roberts and family, Conwy
"I would like to inform you that all of us were impressed with Ysgubor cottage .It was very well equipped and suited our requirements.We were also pleased with its location so convenient for the beach and also to Harlech.I am ashamed to say it was my first visit to that part of North Wales being a southerner.We wlll certainly return in the future.
I also met Richard and Sue who were most hospitable and the supply of cakes and bread on arrival was very thoughtful.
Thank you once again for making all the arrangements."
"Well another fantastic trip to North Wales and to catch up with the owners was fantastic, Now been going there for 20 years, And looking forward to coming back, Thanks Gwion and Louise and family, It is certainly the most relaxing cosy place on Earth."
