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 on both nights of your stay and bespoke drinks packages can be purchased. 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 4 additional toilet/shower cubicles. There are two electric hook-ups here. Two camping fields, Barn Field and Cae Hendre, 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.

“The location. Llyn Gwynant is nestled in the mountains of Snowdonia, a stone’s throw away from Snowdon. It was really atmospheric, misty and then bright sunshine – a really unique way to introduce our guests to a location that already holds such an important place in our hearts”

Perfect choice for our wedding
Llyn Gwynant Barns was the perfect choice for our wedding! We wanted a relaxed atmosphere surrounded by nature and beautiful views, and a venue that would allow us to decorate for ourselves and have an informal, simple meal. The barns are just beautiful and the location really can’t be beaten – all our guests were full of comments and compliments about the stunning views and the barns facilities. We wanted to use local vendors so were thrilled when we were informed that the barns would be able to provide our choice of local beers alongside their already well stocked bar! We rallied together friends and family to help us set up the decorations and did all the flowers ourselves – having the barns for the whole weekend meant that we had plenty of time to make it look exactly as we imagined and the staff at Llyn Gwynant were more than accommodating and helpful throughout. I really have to give a shout out to Nic who helped us out from the very beginning and really made the whole process so easy and stress free! On the day, all of the staff and especially Emilie, were great and assisted us with various furniture moves and provided a seamless service at the bar. All in all, we wouldn’t change a thing – our wedding day was exactly as we pictured and we had the best day. A big part of that is down to the venue and we can’t thank you enough!”

All weddings should be like this!
The very first time we visited Llyn Gwynant, we knew it was the perfect wedding venue for us, being situated in one of the most stunning parts of Snowdonia. The Barns themselves are beautiful, inside and out, and allow so much freedom to make them your own (although we ended up doing very little to them – they’re perfect as they are!). There are so many areas of the venue that make it so special – we were drawn particularly by the back patio area, which was great for sitting outside by the fire pit in the evening, and the extensive private fields where guests can wander to explore the views – and we could plant an oak tree! Something for us to come back to visit on our anniversary! We hired the venue from Friday through to Sunday, and our guests staying onsite really enjoyed settling in on the Friday night, making use of the well-equipped kitchen and chill-out area, as well as the campsite’s bar and pizzeria. Steve and his team excelled themselves setting up tipis for our guests (in bad weather that thankfully cleared up for the wedding itself!) – having everyone on site in this way created a really relaxed, festival-like atmosphere, and Steve was on hand into the evening to ensure everyone was happy with their comfy beds & bedding! All of the staff were amazing, from start to finish. Nic and Steve in particular were super friendly and extremely helpful from the start, happy to answer all of our questions and show us around when we were booking and planning. On the day itself, the Gwynant team couldn’t have been more helpful in making the day run smoothly, always flexible, and going above and beyond with everything. We can’t put into words how much we appreciate their time and effort! In short, our wedding couldn’t have been better – we’d love to do it all over again! The words that sum it all up best though came from one of our guests (and echoed by others): “Amazing venue, amazing wedding – All weddings should be like this”. Thank you!”

Amazing weekend
We had the most amazing weekend celebrating our wedding at Llyn Gwynant Barns. Nic and the team were so helpful in the run up to the wedding which was great because we live over two hours away from the venue so it was handy to know that they were always on hand to answer our questions! The weekend itself was brilliant and exactly what we wanted, staff were on hand to help if we needed it but we were also left alone to do our own thing. This created a very relaxed atmosphere which was perfect for our wedding weekend! We booked the barns and campsite from the Thursday to the Monday which I would absolutely recommend because it gave us plenty of time to decorate and prepare for our wedding on the Saturday but also enjoy the beautiful surroundings after the wedding… and also time to enjoy the left over wine! Over all a perfect wedding venue if you want a very personalised chilled out wedding weekend. “

Our own unique wedding
As a local boy, I knew how amazing the setting was. Once Siobhan had seen it, we both realised this was the place we wanted our reception to be. The day itself was magical, and the ability to decorate ourselves and create our own unique wedding is something we treasure. Both families camped the night of the wedding, which allowed us all to spend that extra time with one another, again something we had really looked forward to. All the staff were excellent throughout. They were where they needed to be, and we experienced great communication throughout the planning and on the day itself.

Beautiful backdrop
Llyn Gwnant was the ideal place for our wedding, the facilities and the setting were just what we were looking for. We appreciated the option to rent Bell tents for our guests, and the large kitchen area. The main barn itself looks stunning and was easily big enough for our meal with ~120 guests, and then a ceilidh after. Staff were helpful, friendly and enthusiastic. The new patio area with benches was popular as a sheltered outdoor area, while the lake and tree provided a beautiful backdrop for our ceremony. We’re very happy to recommend Llyn Gwynant, especially if you love the outdoors and want the freedom to run things your own way.”
