The Grain Store description

Holiday home
Originally built as a grain store in the 19th Century, this detached property now offers accommodation for groups of up to four people. It is set in an enviable location, offering views of the sea and Mount Cader Idris. The grounds belong to the owner, although there is a private area of garden reserved for visitors with garden furniture and a barbecue for the sunny summer months. Inside, the accommodation is arranged over levels and the renovation has retained original features such as exposed beams throughout the property. For the colder seasons, the cottage is served by central-heating and a coal-effect fire in the sitting-room. With easy access to picturesque walks, this property is a tranquil base for a small group of friends or a family.

The harbour town of Abersoch is part of the Llyn Peninsula, a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The area is a maze of outstanding coastal footpaths and beautiful beaches that play host to major surfing, sailing and wakeboarding events. Abersoch has a number of golf courses to entertain and challenge enthusiasts of all levels and, in June, the whole town takes on a real carnival atmosphere as the annual Abersoch Jazz Festival gets underway. Visitors are well served by shops, pubs and restaurants and there is a selection of fine beaches to choose from, in addition to a number of secluded bays, coves and cliffs to explore. The wildlife reserve on Bardsey Island will provide nature-lovers with the opportunity to spot puffins, dolphins and the yellow star anemone.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

The cottage was a little quirky, having been a farm building conversion, but had everything we needed for a super holiday experience. It was in a lovely quiet spot, within walking distance to Abersoch. One of the better places we have stayed at.

This was our second stay at The Grain Store. It is an excellent accommodation, everything you need is at hand. The location is fantastic, with wonderful views and it is really quiet peaceful, which suits us perfectly. The owners who live in the adjacent farmhouse are really nice, friendly people. We love walking with our dog Bella it is such a lovely area around Abersoch, with loads of coastal walks miles of mostly dog friendly beaches to explore. This coupled with the stay at The Grain Store enabled us to have a smashing holiday. We will be staying there again, it is great.

superb view to the sea from the kitcheneasy access to the town and sea.could do with a sofa in property though
December 2012
Very well equipped and clean. Lovely views, but lacked a blind in the kitchen to keep out the morning sun & for privacy at night.
The Keelings
December 2009
Although the owner lives very near within the grounds, our privacy was always respected. He was unobtrusive although very pleasant when we spoke to him to settle up at the end of our stay. The cottage was spotless, warm and cosy. Well appointed and equipped.Lots of hot water at all times. Great country and coastal walks on the doorstep, the nearest beach is about 10 minutes walk away but all the beaches in this area are clean. Do visit Hell's Mouth on a windy day! Beautiful views to the sea from the kitchen or the hills from the side of the cottage. Angela's is an excellent Italian restaurant but do book. There are no low points to this critique. We would go again and have recommended it to anyone who will listen. Fabulous.
