Rent The Best Luxury Holiday Villas
So many of us dream about converting an old barn, cow shed or farm building into our dream home and at The Old Cow Shed you can experience just that! Located in a small town directly by the Sea, just 70 km north from Aberystwyth, this beautiful holiday home is sure to inspire you! Surrounded by the luscious Welsh countryside, the cottage offers up a cosy sophisticated feel, with comfortable and tasteful furnishings throughout its four rooms. Sleeping six guests, the cottage is perfect for a family getaway: spending some quality time together in beautiful surroundings.
The architecture of the building forms a single-storey U-shape, creating a tranquil courtyard at the centre of the cottage where you can enjoy all the outdoor privacy you desire. A large dining table and chairs are arranged in the courtyard, perfect for sunny celebrations, firing up the barbecue and filling the countryside with your laughter. Glass doors, lined up along the façade of the cottage, create a continuous connection between the cosy interior and bright exterior, so you can meander in and out as you choose. These doors flood the interior spaces with light, creating vibrant living spaces for you to appreciate.
Inside, the whole layout is open plan, yet as the rooms wrap around the U-shape, they each have their own section, adding invisible barriers between each space. Starting at the end, the lounge is tucked into the corner of the building, with a vast window looking out upon the emerald fields and a large corner sofa facing in, so you can snuggle up and watch some TV. A fantastic modern egg-shaped wood burner sits between the lounge and adjacent dining area, bringing cosy comfort to both spaces. The dining area itself is bright and airy, with a table to seat eight, and views out to the courtyard. There is also a generous galley kitchen, with plenty of room for you to cook all the family favourites and located next to the dining space, no one is ever left cooking alone.
The largest of the bedrooms offers doors out to the courtyard, with its own en-suite and a luxurious double bed, a good night sleep is guaranteed. There is a further double room and a twin room that share a family bathroom.
This charming holiday cottage is the perfect blend of style and comfort, creating a faultless opportunity to enjoy what’s most important, family.
The Old Cow Shed sits in a in a small town directly by the Sea towards the Southern end of the ever-enchanting Snowdonia National Park.

Whether you are outdoor enthusiasts, or are just looking for a cosy retreat away, this diverse area offers something for everyone; it is truly magical.
The cottage itself is located 70 km north from Aberystwyth, just 3km from the sea and 4km from the nearest beach, with luscious countryside views stretching out in every direction. Amenities such as a shop, grocery, restaurant, bar and café can all be found within 5km of the cottage, so you can get all your necessities nearby. Snowdonia is an are steeped in culture and local history, where more than half its population speak Welsh, so why not give it a go learning a few words yourself!
The closest town is called Twyn, a seaside resort and brilliant base for exploring the best the area has to offer. The narrow-gauge Talyllyn Railway is a must visit during your stay, travelling deep into the hills and there is a fascinating railway museum there too. The mighty Tywyn Wurlitzer Organ is a pride in the town and attending one of the concerts is true joy. They only present the top organists in the UK and sometimes from abroad, all of whom are attracted to playing for the organ’s historic reputation. For something a little more light-hearted, ‘Race the Train’ is an annual fun event that you can attend, it was even featured on Countryfile!
For those looking to explore the great outdoors, the opportunities are endless. Snowdonia boasts the highest mountain in England and Wales, Mount Snowdon. You can climb it yourself, or take the train towards the top, taking in the remarkable views. It is a 90-minute drive to the base of Snowdon from the cottage, but well worth the trip during your stay. Ynysmaengwyn Park, Dolgoch Falls, Bird Rock and Llyn Myngul are all close by, presenting natural wonders for you to enjoy.
