This beautiful four bedroom farmhouse sleeps eight guests in style with many modern touches and a feel of luxury. Situated between the historic village of Aberdaron and the popular beach at Porth Oer (Whistling Sands) on the Lleyn Peninsula, Ysgubor Bach is spacious and largely open plan downstairs, combining traditional oak beams and a gorgeous inglenook fireplace complete with log burning stove.
At the heart of the farmhouse is a cosy yet spacious lounge with sofas, a flatscreen TV, WiFi and an inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove. The dining area has a wooden table which expands to seat 8, and an iPod dock and radio. A traditional oak doorway leads through to the gorgeous farmhouse kitchen complete with slate flooring, black Aga with two ovens and gas hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge and an amazing traditional solid fuel range for those who want to cook 'Downton style'. And for coffee lovers there is a De Longhi Magnifica bean to cup coffee machine with integrated milk frotha for cappuccinos. A separate utility room houses a washing machine, tumble dryer, Belfast sink and small fridge/freezer, and there is a ground floor cloakroom with WC and basin. At the front of the farmhouse, guests can enjoy the views from the pretty conservatory with seating and driftwood table. Upstairs there is a family bathroom with a basin, WC and bath with handheld shower, a separate shower room, and four bedrooms - a kingsize with ensuite shower room, a double, a twin and a room with full-size bunk beds.
Ysgubor Bach has a patio area with seating and a barbecue to the front of the house and to the side there is a large secure grassed area with trees. There are lovely views across open farmland and ample off-road parking for up to three cars.
RUSSIAN BANYA EXPERIENCE
The owners of Ysgubor Bach have lived and worked in Russia and wanted to bring a little bit of Russian tradition to Wales - so they built a Banya !
This self-indulging relaxation experience is a true hot tub alternative - come and enjoy the secret that millions of Russians have known for centuries: the cleansing and refreshing atmosphere of traditional sauna bathing. Enjoy the facilities with your family and friends and have a relaxation experience of a lifetime.
The luxury Russian Banya, or sauna, offers guests the opportunity to experience what is known as "wet heat." The Russian Banya usually has temperatures of 60-80 degrees Celsius with humidity at about 60-70%. The design of the Russian Banya involves the use of a wood-burning stove that heats up the special stones present inside the stove itself. It is these stones that absorb, hold, and slowly release the large amounts of heat that offer the guest an invigorating and relaxing experience. Also, the Russian Banya has a bucket of water with a ladle, which is used to gently pour drops of water onto the stones so as to raise the humidity of the Banya.
The Banya is available as an option between 1100 and 2200 and the maximum number of persons that can be accommodated at one time is 8. If you wish to use the banya during your stay please provide 24 hours notice as the stove needs to be prepared for some hours before it is hot enough to use. A 3-hour banya session costs £20 per person (min 2 persons), and a towel and sheet per person are provided. All you need bring are a swimsuit and a pair of flip-flops, and a bathrobe if you wish. Children are also welcome to experience the Banya but must be carefully supervised at all times. (over 10 HALF-PRICE and under 10 FREE)
A birch venik (£5) may also be purchased and instructions on its use can be provided, and we have felt hats for rent (£2) if required.
£200 security deposit requested please.
Up to 2 dogs welcome by arrangement.
Electricity, heating and WiFi included. An initial supply of wood for the stove is provided.
Bed linen and towels provided (please bring your own beach towels).
Cot, high chair and stairgate available.
Strictly no smoking please.
Sorry, no hen or stag parties accepted.
Please note the stairs are open to the lounge so young children should be supervised.

Gorgeous property and surroundings. Owners were lovely and great to deal with. Will be back againMrs regina bergin - 9th July 2018
The property is beautiful and every detail is well thought out. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and loved the cosy sitting room with the cosy log fire and the long dining table where we played card games in the evening. We would definitely recommend this property.Mrs Karen Bushdyhan - 8th January 2017

Enjoyed Ysgubor Bach very much. House was super & owners very friendly. They accommodated our bikes in the garage. We especially enjoyed the warm conservatory & the log fire. Living space was excellent.Mrs Anne B - 23rd May 2015
