In addition to the four bedrooms (one with ensuite bathroom), there is another sitting room with two sofa beds, a large family bathroom, additional toilet with basin and a large utility area for any four legged friends looking to get dry after a long day out walking and swimming in the lake. There is underfloor heating throughout and fires within each living area. Entertainment is provided with a large 3-D television, DVD library, games console & board games. Outside the barn there is outside seating, use of a BBQ and ample on site car parking and storage for bikes. There are a range of facilities and walks within close proximity to the barn, we provide a full activity pack including walking guides to help you explore the best that the area has to offer. Within a 5 minute walk you can reach Rheilffordd Llyn Tegid (The Bala Lake Railway) which is a delightful 9 mile return journey by steam locomotive alongside Bala Lake, taking in the spectacular views of Snowdonia National Park. For those that prefer to explore by their own steam there is use of 4 kayaks, please note these are used at your own risk and any losses will be charged. Please note unfortunately we do not accept any hen/stag parties or single-sex groups. More

About the neighbourhood
Llanuwchllyn is a traditional village bordering Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) within Snowdonia National Park. There is a small well stocked local shop and pub within the village, with further amenities, larger shops and restaurants located in Bala, just 4.5 miles away from Llanuwchllyn. There are a number of outdoor recreational centres in the local vicinity offering a wide range of activities and water sports including, horse riding, sailing, windsurfing, canyoning, gorge walking and white water rafting. We provide an activity pack within the accommodation to help you explore the best the area has to offer. Llanuwchylln is a truly versatile base with spectacular walks from the doorstep, a 30 minute drive away from the beautiful sandy beaches of Barmouth, and less than an hours drive for shoppers paradise in Chester.
How to get there
From Bala or Dolgellau turn off the A494 and proceed through the village of Llanuwchllyn for approximately half a mile. There is a small single track road Adwy Wynt which is adjacent to a larger road Maes-Y-Pandy (there is a small white cottage visible from the road that marks the start of the track). Proceed down the track and you will find Ysgubor Glandwr at the bottom. Due to the secluded nature of the property it is sometimes difficult to find us, should you not be able to locate us for any reason please just get in touch.
