About The Barn at Gelli Newydd


The Barn at Gelli Newydd is one of the highlights of our portfolio. Guests will fall in love with its setting but also the wonderful design and finish, crafted with the finest materials and maintaining the ambience of a luxury Welsh Barn. Beautiful local Welsh larch cladding and natural stone encapsulate a slick, luxurious and spacious barn. Perched high on a hillside above Trefriw, between Conwy and Betws-y-Coed.

This is a charming, unspoilt part of beautiful North Wales is a region rich in outdoor action and adventure, from the world's first inland surfing lagoon-Surf Snowdonia, zip wires at Zip World, high ropes, and cavern trampolines, to the many forest walks, mountain bike trails, hills, lakes and rivers for which the area is rightly famous for. People travel from all over Europe to have a go on Zip World - booking is vital. Join scenic footpaths straight from your doorstep, go onwards and upwards from the cottage and you'll come to two lovely, little-visited lakes, Llyn Geirionydd and Llyn Crafnant.

The luxury Shaker Kitchen Company kitchen is the focal point of a fabulous house, with open plan living and capacious living room /dining room, the ideal focal point for friends and family to gather, here we have the perfect setting to enjoy views across the stunning Conwy valley below.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Barn. The photos did not disappoint - the views were incredible and the barn was amazing. We were there during three storms, but were still able to get out and explore. The walks around the barn are great and exploring further afield was so much fun (Llandudno, betws y coed and Conwy). We also loved being able to snuggle up during the bad weather, play board games and drink wine. Thanks for having us and we can't wait to come back soon!

About the Area

If you would like more information on the local area, please call us on 01348 837871 to speak to one of our friendly team.

Amazing setting with rolling countryside and views but so close to The Snowdonia ranges, ZIP-World and Surf Snowdonia - an adventurers haven.

You won't have to cover huge distances here, but there's a whole world of experiences close by such with Betws-y-coed just down the road, Adventure Parc Surf Snowdonia, Zip World Quarry, Bodnant Gardens, Ffin y Parc Gallery, Historic Conwy, and many north Wales coastal towns, beaches, castles and historical sites to discover.


Trefriw has a vibrant heart, so expect a friendly welcome at the post office/shop, the award-winning butchers, the fantastic working woollen mill, in the two pubs, and in the brasserie and local cafe.

Action and Adventure

The perfect base for those looking for a thrilling new adventure or challenge, be it abseiling, canoeing, coasteering, climbing or mountain biking, go on give it a go! There is something for everyone right here in the immediate area, with activities to exhilarate and quench the thirst of every thrill-seeker. Take to the trees with friends and family at Zip World Forest to tackle ropes, nets and swings strung through the canopies, or the Fforest Coaster toboggan run and the new Plummet 2, a pulse-pounding 100ft/30m drop through a trapdoor that's the closest things to free fall this side of an aeroplane.

For more woodland forays you can go walking, riding and mountain biking in the glades of the Gwydyr Forest. Other outdoor activities include canyoning and scrambling, and if you want subterranean adrenaline thrills there are these too, at nearby Go below Underground adventures. Adventure Parc Surf Snowdonia is just 4m away, Zip World Quarry 10m, Bodnant Gardens 6m, Ffin y Parc Gallery 5m, Betws-y-Coed 6m, Historic Conwy 9m, and many other fabulous north Wales coastal towns, beaches, castles and historical sites to be discovered.

Lakes & Mountains from the door

Trefriw is blessed with two of the most spectacular lakes (Geirionydd and Crafnant). Both lakes lie in the most stunning surroundings and offer different facilities. Geirionydd offers watersports for everyone (paddle and powerboating) whilst Crafnant is a much more peaceful environment. The community lead project Trefriw Trails has 8 waymarked trails which are suited to all ages and abilities for walking and cycling.

The Fairy Falls - Trefriw

Take a look at these beautiful waterfalls, a hidden gem in Trefriw, just a very short uphill walk up the path opposite the Fairy Falls Inn.

Trefriw Mill

The River Crafnant, tumbles down from mountain lakes, provides the power to run the machines at Trefriw Woollen Mill, which have been producing traditional Welsh bedspreads for over 150 years. You can take a tour of the mill and watch its clattering, impossibly complicated machinery blending, straightening, spinning, winding and weaving the wool, and then pop into the mill shop to peruse the highly desirable produce.

Mountain Biking

With so many MTB centres on our doorstep, mountain bikers are spoilt for choice. From tranquil forest trails to serious downhill, there is a route for everyone. Two miles from the Marin Trail, Trefriw lies at the very heart of the mountain biking community and offers MTB visitors to the area the chance to refuel and relax.


In a nutshell, this handsome, historic town, is capital of the verdant Vale of Conwy.

Llanrwst's famous three-arched bridge across the Conwy, Tu Hwnt i'r Bont is one of the most photographed spots in Wales. It leads across the clear-flowing waters to a beautifully restored 15th-century house now owned by the National Trust. History is thick on the ground wherever you look.

The town has an attractive range of independent shops selling everything from books to artisan and specialist foods.

Snowdon Mountain Railway

If you don´t feel like hiking, you can catch the train to the peak of Wales´ highest mountain. A brilliant way to experience the jaw-dropping landscapes, it is an unforgettable journey.

Beaches and Coastal Paths

With miles of seashore wishing easy reach, you can enjoy wooded estuary walks, large sandy beaches, dramatic cliff paths, secluded bays and traditional Welsh harbour towns and villages. Between the Conwy and Dyfi estuaries, discover the wide and fast waters of the Menai Strait on a speed boat, the spectacular Llyn Peninsula and the alluring mountain-backed areas of Cardigan Bay around Harlech. The possibilities for quiet days without seeing a soul or family days out are endless. The coast is 20 minutes drive through breathtaking scenery.

Food & Drink

The pristine countryside, rivers and seas are the source of fine, fresh food and drink and part of your Welsh experience is to discover the wide variety of quality food and drink producers in North Wales. Locally there are a host of restaurants, Cafe's and pubs, takeaways and fast food outlets. Llandudno and other destinations in Conwy County have a wide variety of food types on offer, including European, Indian, Chinese and Thai, as well as more traditional Welsh and British menus. The proximity to the coast means that there is a great choice of fresh fish and seafood on offer.

With a range of national and international award-winning producers such as Edwards of Conwy master butchers, Baravelli's chocolatiers and Parisella's ice cream, you'll enjoy the very best of Welsh produce during your stay in the county. Plus, you can dine out at award-winning restaurants and bars such as Bryn Williams, Signatures and The Albion in Conwy.
