Llethryd Barns
Reviewed February 21, 2013

We just stayed here for two nights and it was flawless.
We had the courtyard suite which was really modern spacious, and comfortable with
everything you need.
Staying on a B&B basis with your own apartment does spoil you.
You cant beat getting back after a good days walking and being able to kick off boots and collapse into the sofa. Adrian was really helpful and pointed out some really good places to eat
Breakfast was lovely and there was plenty of it.The small breakfast is the size of a normal breakfast at most B&Bs.
Breakfast is server untill 10am!!!!!!!! ooohhhh yes! Normally you get up early and rush around getting ready for work every day, and you go away to kick back and you still have to get up at a sensible time. This is the first time I have been allowed to have a proper lie in while at a B&B

.
The Barns are located in the centre of the Gower and make a great base for exploring the whole place.

Room Tip: Garden suits would be quieter than the courtyard ones as they are further from the road.

We have just returned from a lovely weekend staying at llethryd barns on the Gower. Adrian and Julie were very welcoming and friendly. Barns were immaculate and breakfasts filling and delicious with a good variety of options. Service was prompt and polite. Loved the pigs, ducks and chickens although Maisie the goat was conspicuous by her absence!
Great location for exploring the Gower, lovely beaches and tea rooms a plenty.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend, all the benefits of a B&B with the privacy of your own self contained room.

Room Tip: Go for the garden suites as more private and away from roadside.

Adrian and Julie are fantastic hosts, lovely people and it is clear they take a real pride in what they do. The rooms are modern clean and homely, with cottage style. The breakfasts are delicious, thank you Julie!! The location is lovely and secluded, with beautiful grounds; the perfect retreat!! I would highly recommend this place to anyone, from a large family trip to a romantic get away for a couple.

I had a lovely peaceful 3 nights at Llethryd Barns during the olympics and stayed in a garden suite which I'd highly recommend. Great breakfast, sociable place to stay and meet fellow guests yet very private. Lovely gardens and a stone's throw away from all the beauty of the Gower. Julie and Adrian are perfect hosts and great fun to chat with. Will be coming back! Richard

We stayed here for a short weekend break (two nights) I and am pleased to highly recommend Llethryd Barns. I was originally looking for a self-catering cottage as we wanted our own space, privacy etc but could not find anything that matched our requirements. I did not fancy the idea of a B&B but this place delivered everything we were looking for.
You have your own self-contained unit within a barn conversion with your own access so can come and go as you please without disturbing anyone else. The interior was finished to a very high standard indeed with a living room area, spacious bedroom and bathroom. We chose one of the slightly more expensive Garden Suites so also had our own private outside space which was worth the extra. It felt more like comfortable hotel suite than a B&B and was perfect for us. The location was also ideal, being centrally located within the Gower Peninsula. It was the perfect spot from which to explore the stunning beaches and scenery. We spent the day walking down to 3 cliffs bay and beyond and were pleased to be able to explore the area from the doorstep rather than having to get in the car to get anywhere.
The breakfast was varied and delicious and the owners could not have been more helpful, advising us of good walks and booking restaurants etc for us.
If you are going to the Gower I would advise you to stay here as we really had nothing but a positive experience and hope to go back.

Room Tip: Garden suites are a little more expensive but worth it as you get your own private decking area over...

This accommodation is more than just B+B really. The accommodation is seperate to the main house with individual access, and it is all set in beautiful grounds with flowers, lawns, water feature and seating areas.
We had a courtyard suite which was really a small cottage! Really well equipped with a normal sized fridge, a lovely living area downstairs which had two large sofas and still plenty of space, and a huge and comfortable king sized bed upstairs (mezzanine accommodation but very large). We stayed with our toddler and he had a lovely low single camp bed upstairs next to us. This worked out perfectly as we could settle him to sleep then watch tv downstairs in the evening.
Adrian was so lovely and his service was second to none! The breakfast was to a high standard, beautiful fresh fruit salad, yogurts, cereals, toast, large cooked breakfasts, small cooked breakfasts, light breakfasts (bagels, ham, scrambled eggs) YUM!
The location in the Gower is perfect as its no more than 15 mins drive to any of the beaches and some even closer. We spent the days visiting all the beautiful beaches and had some lovely meals in local pubs in the evenings.
This was a perfect, peaceful 2 night getaway which enabled us to spend some well earned quality family time together, and I would highly recommend to anyone.
