Fferm Lloft is a sympathetic first floor barn conversion, situated on an organic working farm on the outskirts of Dyffryn Ardudwy village on the west coast of the Snowdonia National Park, between Barmouth and Harlech. This cosy apartment is very well presented and is packed with charm and character. It is a perfect getaway, just an easy walk to the stunning coast - about a mile and a half and fairly level, approached along a lane. Just a few steps from the apartment there is a Games Barn and laundry room, also converted from a traditional farm building. The cottage is one of a collection of four which can all be booked together (see Ivy House Barns). The Games Barn houses a 'pub style' pool table, table football, table tennis & film library. There is a children's play area and barbecue/picnic area with picnic tables and charcoal barbecue adjacent to the Games Barn.
'Dyffryn beach has the most majestic stretch of sand stretching into the distance in both directions, perfect for swimming, relaxing (there is a section of beach for naturists) or dog walking. You could walk in either direction to Barmouth or Harlech and get the train back.' from Jacky, our local property manager

7 things to do from on the Cambrian coastline, Dyffryn Ardudwy, Harlech and Barmouth
1 – Summer or winter the vast sandy beaches along this section of the coastline are always stunning. The view from the road above can simply take your breath away as you look down across the sands to the distant mountains of Snowdonia beyond.
2- Take a scenic journey on the Cambrian Coast main line railway, lovely in either direction, or walk sections of the coastline and get the train back. There’s a station at Dyffryn Ardudwy, Harlech and Barmouth
3- Cycle a section of Lon Las Cymru (Route 8), a long-distance cycle way stretching from Holyhead the length of Wales to Cardiff. Beware of the section in the hills behind Harlech though, its on very seep lanes!
4- A visit to Harlech and its castle is a must. The castle is looked after by CADW and there are events on throughout the year. The village itself has some lovely cafes, my favourites are Llew Glas and Harlech Castle café, both serving delicious homemade food.
5- The Rhinog mountains behind the coast are known as one of the last remaining wilderness areas in Britain. One of the more popular walks is up the ‘Roman Steps’ from Cwm Bychan. Another is a visit to the Nantcol river and waterfalls, great for swimming if the weather is warm.
6- Barmouth is a thriving seaside resort with a vintage seaside atmosphere of candyfloss, ice creams and donkey rides. The beach is great, there’s a small fun fair during the summer, and the town itself has plenty of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Boat trips and canoe and SUP hire can also be arranged here.
7- Within an hour drive you can visit many of the most popular attractions of north Wales; including Portmeirion Italianate village, the West Highland and Ffestiniog steam Railway, Zip World zip wires and Bounce Below underground trampolines at Blaenau Ffestiniog and the mountains of Snowdonia for walks or the train up Snowdon itself.
Lovely peaceful position and friendly hosts. Will return Mr Robin Dynes - 31st July 2018
Lovely quiet break. The place is lovely, views are amazing and everything you need is in the apartment. The games room is great if the weather is a bit rainy. Storm Ophelia and storm Brian arrived while we were here. The homemade welcome fruit cake was especially tasty.Georgina - 22nd October 2017
