Neglected for years as it no longer met the needs of modern day farming methods, this lovely old barn has been saved from dereliction by being renovated into a sleek, luxury holiday cottage. We have done our best to keep the original look of the building’s impressive exterior, keeping its original features and adding contemporary fittings.
Ysgubor Iwrch now offers guests a luxurious base from which to enjoy a memorable holiday in Snowdonia, North Wales.
Step inside the impressive front entrance into a bright and airy open plan kitchen, dining and living area. Kick your shoes off straight away to make the most of the toasty underfloor heating which runs throughout the building.
Enjoy cooking delicious meals in this modern, well equipped kitchen. The sociable layout means the rest of the family can keep you company while they sit around the large hand crafted dining table. Throw the patio doors wide open on a sunny morning to enjoy a leisurely breakfast or brunch, taking in the views of the orchard and the fields beyond. Gather around the oak table for a family get together and enjoy an evening of playing board games – you’ll find a selection hidden away in the farmhouse kitchen dresser.
Relax on the large leather sofa to enjoy a blazing log fire in the wood burning stove. There’s also a couple of comfy armchairs surrounding the fire and the flat screen TV – plenty of room for all the family to watch a film or just take in the comfort and warmth of a crackling fire.
At the end of the day, retire upstairs to sleep in super comfy beds with crisp, white cotton bed linen. Large windows and skylights ensure that the bedrooms are nice and bright on winter mornings. Close the blackout blinds for lazy Summer lye-in’s.
Enjoy the invigorating rain shower in the en-suite bathroom or, if a long soak in the bath is more your thing, choose the second bathroom along the landing.

The cottage is always warm and cosy thanks to the environmentally friendly under floor heating which is fitted throughout. An eco friendly ‘Air Source Heat Pump’ provides the heat for the underfloor heating. The heat pump itself is powered by electricity generated from the river that runs along the bottom of our land.
A wood burning stove provides additional heat if necessary (a basket of logs are supplied, small additional charge for extra logs).
We want you to know exactly what you’re getting when you book your stay at Ysgubor Iwrch so we’ve tried to be completely honest in our description of the place.
Wi-fi – our rural location means we can only offer limited free wi-fi to our guests. It’s fine for checking emails, Facebook, and browsing the web, but not so good for watching videos, playing online games or downloading large files. There are a number of cafes nearby which offer free unlimited wi-fi.
Mobile phone reception tends to come and go at Moel Yr Iwrch. There is usually no signal inside the cottage but you can make calls a short walk up the road or in the field next to the cottage. Our house landline is always available in an emergency.
Ysgubor Iwrch is located on a small working farm. This might mean that from time to time some agricultural related noise is expected (eg machinery, sheep braying, chickens/cockerel crowing).
Dog friendly. Dogs are very welcome at Ysgubor Iwrch. We do, however, respectfully ask that owners consider carefully whether their dog/s are suited to be staying on a working form. Our cottages are surrounded by open fields and there are a lot of things to chase – sheep, chickens, cats, children…… There is an enclosed garden and paddock directly outside the cottage’s back door where you can exercise your dog. There are lots of walks in and around Betws y Coed where your dog/s can run off the lead.
We charge a fee of £5 per dog per night or £25 per dog per week.
Check in time is from 4pm and we kindly ask that you check out by 10am. We try to be on hand to welcome you on check in but alternative arrangements can be made if a late check in is requested.
Up to 2 well behaved dogs are very welcome (small charge & conditions apply – please refer to Conditions of Booking).
Large groups. All three of our cottages can be let together to sleep a maximum of 12 people – an ideal setting for a Christmas or New Year family get together.
Additional guests. Should you have friends or family that wish to join you during your stay we are able to offer additional accommodation for up to two people in ‘Y Granar’, our self contained double bedroom which is adjoined to our farmhouse. Affording a large double room with a sofa and flat screen TV, an en-suite bathroom and it’s own private entrance, ‘Y Granar’ offers guests their own private space while they can join you in your cottage for meals and family get togethers. Please contact us for further details and prices.
