Accommodation, taxi and hire

Llyn Gwynant Barns  consist of three adjacent and imposing stone buildings, which are hired with two beautiful fields around the barns that overlook the lake. These fields ensure privacy and can be used for outdoor celebrations. There is ample room for a marquee but this must be one of our beautiful pagodas, see our Marquee hire page as we need to protect our grass and underground services.  Camping in the fields can be simply for your own guests to arrange and a few electric hookups are also provided near the barns for motorhomes or caravans. Alternatively create your own mini-festival  glamping site for guests with luxurious Bell or Tipi tents. These must be from our preferred tent company: since other local firms have damaged our grass. This company offers great value and comes highly recommended.

Non-camping guests can hire Plas Colwyn, a luxury mansion that can accommodate up to 22 people in the heart of Beddgelert, a charming village just 6 miles away. Even closer are a range of options including pods, lodge or apartments of Red Dragon Holidays, only 2 miles down the road.

Arfon taxis can provide transport between your accommodation options. The Hire Co offer a far wider range of furniture and tableware than is available from the barns.

Anji and her team provide an excellent service at a very reasonable price, and we are happy to entrust our fields and our customers to them. As they say “There’s something magical about our luxury tents… Outside, they’re beautiful, natural structures that touch the ground and reach for the sky with elegant and timeless simplicity. Inside, they’re a calm, welcoming shelter that’s practical, versatile and  supremely stylish, giving warmth in the winter and staying cool in the summer.” Website:, Phone: Anji on 07834 768348
