At-a-glance details

About Tyn y Parc Barn

Next to a pretty farmhouse on the Plas yn Rhiw estate, groups of friends and families will adore this character packed barn close to the North Wales coast.

With an old water mill behind the farm buildings, this converted barn is modern, bright and full of coastal charm. Perfect for walkers, families, surfers and outdoor lovers, you’ll find the barn nestled at the bottom of the Rhiw mountain, which rises behind the barn, and also close to the long sandy beach at Porth Neigwl (Hell’s Mouth).

Once you’ve stepped through the entrance porch you’ll find yourself in the hall, with the kitchen on your right and then the living room and dining area beyond. Straight on from the hallway is a separate toilet, family bathroom with its separate shower and then another corridor which leads to the bedrooms. Then, there’s the warren of bedrooms to explore! The first of these is a quad room, with four single beds, and then there’s a small flight of stairs that leads to the master bedroom, and another double bedroom on the other side of the landing (which has a door leading to an external stone staircase). Outside, the large garden is shared with Tyn y Parc Farmhouse next door but you’ll still have your own patio furniture for outdoor lunches, dinners or breakfast before a day of exploring.

Follow the lane from the cottage to the beach at Porth Neigwl (Hell’s Mouth) which is three and a half miles of sandy and pebble shore and craggy headlands, perfect for walking and with waves favoured by surfers. You’ll find the nearest pub and shops four miles away at Aberdaron or it’s a little bit further to Abersoch where you’ll find lots of kitesurfers enjoying the sheltered location. The bustling market town of Pwllheli (also on the coast) is home to the closest supermarket, as well as providing more shops, cafes and pubs, perfect for an afternoon stroll.

You’ll find the western fringes of the Snowdonia National Park with its unspoilt mountains steeped in history about an hour away from the cottage. You can also head to the incredible little beach known as ‘Whistling Sands’ at Porthor, on the western coast of the Llyn Peninsula. True, the sand may squeak, rather than truly whistle, but it’s still fun. If beaches aren’t your thing, then slate mines and a variety of restored railway lines pepper the landscape. Try Bounce Below at Blaenau Ffestiniog, where giant trampolines fill a disused slate mine, or hurtle through the air over a disused quarry on Europe’s longest zip wire. For a less adrenaline-fuelled day out, the fantasy Italianate town of Portmeirion with its brightly coloured crowd of buildings is also worth a trip. When you stay with us, the funds from your holiday go towards caring for special landscapes and places, like the rugged Llyn Peninsula and its incredible coastline.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
