A quaint barn once owned by Henry VIII but now providing perfectly placed holiday accommodation for visiting the Criccieth area.

These detached, converted barns (refs OK7 and OK8) are located in the hills between Pentrefelin and Criccieth, with spectacular views out to sea. From the garden, guests can enjoy wonderful 360 degree views of Cardigan Bay, together with a picturesque backdrop of the Snowdonia Mountain range. These 500-year-old cottages, once owned by Henry VIII, have been lovingly restored by the owners to provide beautiful holiday accommodation. Little Barn (OK8) is equipped with a hot tub for exclusive use, which is ideally positioned to enjoy the stunning views over Cardigan Bay and the mountains. These are idyllic cosy and romantic cottages. This is an ideal location for walkers, bird watchers and golfers, with many activities just on the doorstep, including horse riding, fishing, climbing and sailing, being located just 10 minutes from Pwllheli Marina and having a spectacular golf course and fishing lake within walking distance from the properties. These properties are also popular with artists, due to the spectacular views and abundance of light. With many lovely walks from the doorstep, as well as the beaches at Criccieth and Black Rock Sands at Morfa Bychan all within easy reach. Criccieth has a good selection of restaurants and pubs, and Criccieth Castle, standing proud over the bay, is well worth a visit. In the other direction is Porthmadog, home to the famous Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland railways. Portmeirion is close by, and the mountain ranges of northern Snowdonia, the village of Llanberis and the Llyn Peninsula are also within easy reach. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    Had an absolutely fabulous week here for new year with my husband and my dogs. It was so relaxing! The view outside the door is spectacular. The cottage has eveything you need, and there's a really handy guidebook inside that gives you info on local dog friendly places. Also if you get a clear night the stars are fabulous. No light pollution!

    A beautiful cottage in a lovely location with incredible views and very central if willing to travel by car. The owners left little touches in the cottage such as salted butter and bread upon arrival which was appreciated. They really have done an amazing job and we would love to return one day

    We loved Little Barn, the cottage was well equipped, cosy, we loved the log burner, plenty of walks from the front door, Beddgelert and Barmouth are a must, Criccieth is beautiful we had a lovely day walking along the coastal path from there.

    A cozy little place with an excellent location at Snowdonia. Just a few minutes drive if you want some hiking, train riding, towns and so on. Superb view from the cottage over the coast. The biggest drawback was all the spiders inside the cottage. For me that wasnt a problem, but for my wife that was a big issue. I think I killed about 30+ spiders in the corners and the ceiling. Lots of spiders and lots of spider webs all around the cottage. But all in all, it was an lovely stay. We would definitely come back here again.

    The reason we would not stay at Little Barn again is on this occasion we were with our family who were staying in The Old Cowshed this is okay but if the other cottage was occupied b y strangers we would not feel comfortable. TheLittle Barn was lovely and the views were graat we loved having our meals outside with such lovely views.

    Lovely cottage with fantastic views. Well placed for the beaches of the Llyn Penisula and the mountains of Snowdonia. Private and peaceful location. The hot tub is a lovely feature, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A perfect hideaway for two. Note: The bedroom does have low beams around the bed, and the bathroom/ toilet is downstairs. This did not bother us, but less able or older people might need to be aware.

    Beautiful views from outside cottage, but sadly nothing could be seen from inside. Cottage was rather dark inside with little natural light. The bed is way past its lifetime and should be replaced.

    Beautiful location, superb views. Hot tub needs attention as not fully working. Local maps would have been handy, lovely selection of goodies when we arrived. Sun loungers would have been nice. Local beaches not to far away to explore.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. The hot tub is a top of the range Canadian 4 man Hot Springs and is 100% functional. I can only assume that these guests did not operate the jets? As for maps there are area guides and places to see in the property already.
