    “The most beautiful barn in a perfect location.”

    - Annie, October 2021

The property

The Old Barn is exactly what it says it is, a splendid stone building.

Now carefully restored it is a fun holiday house in a peaceful location with a very pretty, small enclosed garden, just a short walk from the well known Bodnant Gardens. "I love The Old Barn!

Completely different with lots of interesting features, such as the stairs, the splendid living space with French doors opening on to a small garden & the balcony in one of the bedrooms." Nestling in the heart of the Conwy valley known for its spectacular scenery, Llanrwst, Snowdonia, Betws Y Coed and Llandudno, with its great theatre which has regular visits from the Welsh National Opera, are all a short drive away.

Warm, snug and cosy, The Old Barn is just the retreat to relax and recharge your batteries whether you visit on your own or with friends. Short breaks are available during the quieter months with flexible changeover days.

About the location


Conwy 8 miles; Llandudno 9 miles; Betws-y-Coed 12 miles.

The village of Eglwysbach is in the wonderful Conwy Valley, which is renowned for its beautiful countryside, scenic walks and the world famous Bodnant Gardens. Nearby Conwy, a World Heritage Site, is one of Britain's most unspoilt historic towns. A true medieval gem, the town is dominated by a splendid castle and completely enclosed by its well-preserved town walls - fortified with 21 towers and three gateways, the walls form an almost unbroken shield around the old town. There's plenty to enjoy in Conwy - the picturesque fishing harbour, National Trust's Aberconwy House, Britain's "smallest house" (worth an interesting, if quick, visit!) as well as the town's shops, pubs and restaurants. Close by are good beaches along the North Wales coast and excellent walking, mountain biking, canoeing, climbing and surfing in Snowdonia and the surrounding hills.

Note: Unfortunately, access can not be permitted to the house or grounds before 1600 under any circumstances, so please make sure you do not arrive before that time. There is a National Trust tea room 150 yards to the North at the Bodnant Garden car park.
Note: Except for the parking strip and the garden which adjoins the house shown on the plan, the land immediately around the Old Barn is private and NOT available to guests. Public footpaths are shown on the OS map provided. In addition, by kind consent of the Bodnant Estate, guests are welcome to walk the network of private tracks which is identified by green timber gates marked 'Strictly Private'.
Note: There is a £200 Good House Keeping Bond.
