Aberdaron, Gwynedd, North Wales, Wales
Situated in the Llyn Peninsula Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), Ysgubor Bach stands alone half way between the historic village of Aberdaron and the beautiful beach at Porth Oer (Whistling Sands). Dating from 1748 it is a traditional stone built former farmhouse offering exposed beams, real fires, a fully working kitchen range and Aga cooker. The property has been renovated to a high standard and tastefully furnished, yet retains its homely atmosphere. In addition, the guests at the property have access (optional) to the only traditional Russian banya (sauna) in Wales, a spa treatment that is a fantastic hot-tub alternative.

The cottage was immaculately clean, spacious and beautifully presented and the owners couldn't do enough to help us and make the stay comfortable. The area is beautiful, a very short drive from Aberdaron village and beach, and is a perfect place for a family holiday for those with young kids. We'll definitely return to Ysgubor Bach in the future.

Management response:

Really glad you enjoyed your holiday and we do hope to see you again sometime. Thank you for the card and bottle of wine. Spacibo bolshoye!
