Llyn Gwynant Barns Full Description
Events can be fully or partly self-catered using the facilities in the Kitchen Barn or one of our approved catering companies can be bought in to provide a formal or informal meal. Self contained mobile catering of your choice can usually be approved for those who want festival style catering outside the buildings. Guests can opt to camp in the private barn fields with lake views, making this a cost-effective as well as beautiful location for your wedding. The standard hire is for two days and additional nights can be booked around weekends. The Big Barn is a wonderful large room, 12 x 12 metres, with a high roof, tall oak windows, a stage at one end and large glass doors opening out to a terrace overlooking the lake. There is a stone fireplace and woodburner, mood and stage lighting. A very reasonably priced bar is open post ceremony until midnight of your wedding day and we charge a corkage fee of 10%. The Kitchen Barn has a commercial kitchen at one end and wooden tables, benches and seating at the other. The Tall Barn forms the entrance to the Big Barn. There are steep steps on one side to alpine-style sleeping platforms for up to 20 people which can be used creatively for sleeping, storage, quiet kids area and as a dressing room. Internal heated bathrooms are accessed from the Big Barn have three toilet cubicles, including one wheelchair accessible, two hot showers, additional basins, and many mirrors. The Barn Yard outside has parking for about 30 cars, and an outside toilet block with 3 additional toilet/shower cubicles. There are two electric hook-ups here. Two camping fields run down to the lake. When hiring the barns, you get private use of these fields, which can be used for tent camping or small campervans; in addition, there is space for a few caravans beside the hedgerow at the top of the Barn Field, where there are four electric hook-ups. Further parking is available on the campsite overflow car park by arrangement.

Best weekend of our lives!
Thank you so much to Danielle and Steve for helping us to make our wedding weekend the absolute best! We had the most amazing time, which is all thanks to you guys being so helpful, calm and patient with us. Organising a wedding in just 11 months whilst selling and moving house was no easy feat and you both made us feel so reassured and supported and helped to make our weekend work so smoothly. We couldn't have asked for a better work force to help us and a better venue with such stunning views. We also loved that we could make it our own and decorate it how we liked, so many of our guests commented on how very 'us' the wedding was, so unique and different. We also loved being able to stay at the venue for the whole weekend with our family and friends, it really extended the wedding celebrations which had we gone to a different venue we wouldn't have experienced. We loved the camping vibe and the community spirit of everyone 'mucking in' together to get the wedding underway. We loved that we could have a camp fire on the Sunday night to roast some marsh mellows, that we could have alpacas come along to the wedding and we could plant a love tree as an alternative to exchanging rings in the ceremony. We couldn't have done these things anywhere else. We truly can't thank you enough for making our weekend the best one we've ever had! We were so sad to leave on the Monday.

Absolutely beautiful and completely unique
We got married at Llyn Gwynant Barns on the 8th July and it was everything we'd hoped and more. The venue is absolutely stunning and we lucked out with the weather. The sun shone, the majority of guests glamped in the bell tents (we had 30+ set up!) and everyone enjoyed the surroundings, having a dip in the lake, paddle boarding, kayaking and venturing off on hikes to explore the area. The venue itself is wonderful and special mentions go to Steve and Danielle who work tirelessly to make sure everything is perfect. They are honestly a joy to deal with and are so laid back they take any stress out of the situation - they want it to go without a hitch as much as you do! Depending on what you want and how you want the venue decorated, there is a lot of setting up and packing away to do. If you want a venue you can just roll up to where everything is done for you, this might not be the place for you but we wouldn't have gone anywhere else. We had everything exactly as we wanted it. With some willing helpers in the form of guests, many hands make light work and it was extra special having our friends involved. The new bathrooms are fab and all the facilities kept spotless. Big thanks to the team. We had THE BEST day and want to do it all over again every year 😂 x

Dream come true!
Having spent a lot of time around Snowdonia in the past, and having camped at the campsite, as soon as we saw the Barns we knew it was the place to host our special day. The magic of this part of the world is enough as it is, but the service assistance and complete love and care from Steve and Danielle made it a truly unforgettable experience for not just us, but all of our friends and family as well. Throughout the entire planning process, Danielle and Steve were helpful, responsive and accommodating at every turn. On the day they were amazing and truly helped bring our dream to life, on-hand to assist in the smooth delivery of the wedding as well as friendly and approachable to all of the guests and vendors. I'd say for those who want a beautiful, rural wedding that you have the freedom to customise to your own taste and enjoy simplicity and nature with friendly and accommodating staff - Llyn Gwynant Barns will be the backdrop for the most special day of your life. We can't express our gratitude enough.

Truly magical
Truly magical. We had our wedding at Llyn Gwynant Barns and could not have been better. Staff went above and beyond, could not have asked for more friendly or helpful people. If you're looking for a location for a party or wedding with a view, look no further!

Wonderful staff
My Husband and I (still sounds odd) held our wedding at Llyn Gwynant barns in September 2021. Due to covid our wedding had been postponed but the barns and their staff were wonderful about the whole thing and never made us feel like our day wouldn’t happen. Nic and her staff bent over backwards to ensure we had the best day. All our guests have said what a wonderful time they had, what a beautiful location and how fabulous the barns and bell tents (supplied by Steve from Bear Necessities) were. The barn staff and all the suppliers linked with them helped with all the days little things and made sure it went without a hitch. I am truly delighted that we held our wedding at Llyn Gwynant Barns and we can’t wait to come back. Thank you for helping to make our day amazing!

Large vehicles such as motorhomes can only access by taking a left hand turn heading north (up the hill), and so you may need to turn in the layby beside the lake.

Note that a number of older SatNavs give incorrect locations for this postcode LL55 4NW and place the campsite at the wrong end of the lake! Google Maps and Ordnance Survey maps show the campsite correctly at the north end of the lake.
