“Peace and tranquillity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2010

We stayed in "Stabal" which is a converted stable with a ladder up to your bed . Nice and quirky , you are left alone by the friendly owners and can come and go as you please
The breakfast is excellent and this is a good base to visit Barmouth, Harlech & we went as far as Aberystwyth. You have a nice gas fire ,portable TV, microwave and fridge, We found it really cosy and would definitely recommend it . You do need a car , although we did walk down to the local pub one night ...but only the once and took the car the next times!!

My wife and I have just come back from a 4 day stay at Byrdir.
The comments from all the other reviewers are fully justified. Great welcome, Gwion is a very friendly and entertaining host, location and set up is great, Dell greets you as soon as you arrive, the ducks seem content on their small pond.
We stayed in a studio, which gives you some self-catering facilities if you want them but do take some cooking crockery and utensils as none are supplied. We slept soundly up in the loft. Theses rooms give you more privacy over a normal B&B but you also have the use of a very comfortable visitors lounge in the farmhouse, with plenty of leaflets/books on the area.
The breakfasts lived up to expectations, Louise doing a very good job, and it's nice to stroll over the farmhouse in the morning for them.
THere are numerous footpaths criss-crossing the immediate area if you are interested, the views from them with the great weather we had were stunning. Gwion recommended a number of places to eat so no problems there.
I wouldn't be keen to go in the height of summer as apparently it gets very busy in that part of the country but we're already looking at going back next year, hopefully June & Septemeber.
Glad we've found Byrdir and looking forward to more visits, well done Gwion and Louise for such a relaxing stay and well thought out accommodation.

Had the most relaxing time staying here. Brilliant location and exceptional, relaxed service from the owners (and the dog and goose). A great mix between the freedom of self-catering facilities and having a big cooked breakfast prepared for you every morning. A perfect base for walking in the hills and down on the beautiful coastline. The service you receive here is the kind of service you wish you received wherever you stay (but don't!).

What else can I say? Unfortunately we could only stay one night, but it was fantastic. We arrived by motorbike and had not even got off when we were greeted by the family dog, a stick was kindly dropped on my partners foot, this started a long game of fetch!

As we walked to the front door the two ducks came waddling by then we were greeted by Gwion who took us to our accommodation. Although there were only 2 of us we stayed in a family studio. It was fantastic, had a large comfortable living room with gas fire, small kitchenette, a little dining area with a huge window and an ample sized shower room.

Upstairs, in the mezzanine, a charming and lovely bedroom again large and under hte beams with a little door that led out onto a balcony. The views across the fields down to the sea were amazing, we did not want to leave, have to confess we had a few glasses of wine watching the sunset.

The little touches were lovely, we found a decanter with we think Pinot, just enough for a glass each, a very nice welcome and there were some good quality toiletries for us to use if we needed them.

Everywhere was spotlessly clean and well presented.

Breakfast was scrumptious and ample, Ifan served us and was very friendly giving us a few tips on the welsh language.

This was worth every penny I am so glad I found it on the net.

Have told everyone I know to go there, it is so peaceful and relaxing but at the same time close to the beach, mountains etc.

You have to give it a try!

We had a lovely 3 night stay. We were also able to semi self cater in the studio rooms. Louise's breakfast were lovely and Gwion was wonderfully welcoming. We had stunning weather and enjoyed the cheap local transport and wonderful coastline walks.

Coming 'home' at night to Byrdir with panoramic views and quiet countryside was both relaxing and refreshing.

We stayed at Byrdir for 3 nights with our 6 month old baby and really enjoyed it. We were looking for somewhere quiet to spend some time together that was close to the beach and in a beautiful location - Byrdir was perfect. Our studio cottage was well appointed with a very cosy feel. It had a first floor balcony with sea views and also a kitchenette with a microwave which was perfect for warming up baby feeds. The hosts, Gwion and Louise, were very accommodating and more than happy to help wherever they could. The breakfast is fantastic. I'm not a massive fan of a full English breakfast, but breakfast at Byrdir is a treat. Perfectly cooked evey time with delicious thick - cut toast on the side. Yummy. Iwould definately recommend staying here.

I have been going to Byrdir since 1987 and always found it a delightfull place to stay. It is a mile above the village of Dyffryn Ardudwy and you could not find a more peacefull place.

All the rooms are comfortable and well equiped, plus there are a number of self contained studios with a great view out to sea. Originally built up by Ann and Evan, they have passed it on to their Son and daughter-in-law, Gwion and Louise, who are contining with the same very high standards.

I can recommend Byrdir most heartly, you will not be disappointed.
