THE ENIYA BARN

Menu

WELCOME

Ideal for romantic secluded getaways, solitary retreats and adults seeking peace and quiet in nature.

Full renovation of The Eniya Barn is now complete. The old roof has been completely rebuilt, inside gutted out, cosy new log burner installed in the quirky old fireplace, simple yet tasteful open plan living, all bar the bathroom of course! Perfect for singles or couples but can sleep up to 4, 2 in a double bed and the living area has a 2 seater sofa bed. Please note there are no door separations between areas though so you need to know each other well.

The Eniya (pronounced En-eye-ya) Barn sits in the stunning Snowdonia National Park, North Wales, nestled in a secluded peaceful location on a gentle mountainside.

Steeped in history the main house, which we live in, is a 16th century, grade 11 listed building which has folk tales of princes and fairies linked to it.

The Eniya barn is detached from the main house and is offered as self-catering accommodation. It has its own garden sitting area with a stone built barbeque/fire in the wall off of the property, great for sitting out under uncompromising starry night skies where the Milky Way is visible.

This area is a never ending walker or cyclists paradise. Cyclists can sleep easy knowing your bikes are completely safe up here. There is an array of sight seeing adventures to go on all around.

We are incredibly lucky to live in a part of the world where the rare, mesmerising, natural phenomenon of bio-luminescence can be seen from Anglesey, which is a 45 minute drive away. The northern lights can be seen from the same point. Truly a photographer's paradise!

Regular buses run from the main road.

Bangor train station is 30 minute drive away.

Steam train stations near by.

25 minutes to the major motorways.

Local general store 10 minutes drive.

Major food stores 15 minute drive to Caernarfon and 25 minutes to Bangor (24hr opening)

Many sights and attractions which we can advise you on for days out.

We offer the following retreat options:

1. Simply come and stay as a self-catering, 'get away from it all' quiet-style holiday in an idyllic location.
