Full Description

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.

Beautiful location, relaxed atmosphere
We absolutely loved having our wedding at Llyn Gwynant Barns, from the excellent communication beforehand to all of the support on the day, Nic and the whole team were amazing. It’s such a beautiful location and we loved the opportunity to spend all weekend with our family and friends in such a relaxed atmosphere. We couldn’t fault Llyn Gwynant as a wedding venue and would recommend Nic and the Barns to everyone!

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!

An enchanting, outdoorsy wedding with phenomenal service
My partner and I had our intimate wedding and camped over 2 nights here at the picturesque Llyn Gwynant Barns. Nic, Steve and the team made us feel completely at ease from the moment we made our first enquiry up until our departure the day after the wedding. From sending wines to London be sampled, catering to our diverse dietary requirements, ensuring the smooth running of the day and the warm yet professional service from the whole team – we could not have asked for a more personable and unforgettable experience. Special mention to Nic for being absolutely stellar in her communication and reassuring us that no question was too big or small, she really made us comfortable and relaxed. Big ups to Steve for providing a cot for our youngest guest and setting up the most magical yurts and being so thoughtful with finishing touches. He also went above and beyond helping with the tech side of things ensuring we could stream the ceremony to our loved ones overseas. The barns are stunning with bags of character and charm plus all the amenities we needed to create the wedding we had always wanted. We especially loved the stain glass window and all the outdoor spaces that we used for different parts of the day, like having welcome drinks in the front courtyard and the canapés by the fire pit. Not only were the surrounding areas the perfect backdrop for our special day and made for the most amazing photos, we were also able to camp out amongst the stars and hire out boats to explore the lakes the morning after the wedding with our party. We wish we could do this all over again and would recommend for any couple wanting an enchanting, outdoorsy wedding with phenomenal service to look no further than Llyn Gwynant Barns. Thankyou so much to Nic and the whole team! We had the best wedding ever 🙂

Fantastic place run by fantastic people
Our wedding at Llyn Gwynant Barns was the absolute best day of our lives. It was perfect in every way and I cannot thank the staff enough. From the day we booked, nothing was too much trouble. They go above and beyond for you! We arranged our wedding throughout a global pandemic and I did not at any point feel stressed. Everything we wanted they were able to sort or advise us about and I felt so looked after and informed throughout the process. You only have to visit the barns to see how stunning they are and just the perfect location for a wedding. We hired Tepees (from Steve at Bear Tents) and stayed for 2 nights with our friends and family which meant the wedding wasn’t over in just one day. So many of our guests used this as their holiday for the year and all said how beautiful it was. We used Truefood catering and Chris Morse as our photographer and these were also amazing. The caterers, along with barn staff, decorated the venue for us and it took my breath away walking in there and seeing all of their hard work. I would recommend a wedding at the barn to anyone! Fantastic place run by fantastic people, thank you all so much! The Jacksons x

Expert advice and calming influence
To Nic, Steve, Becky and all the other amazing staff at Llyn Gwynant Barns. Thank you so much for all your help and hard work all the way across our wedding weekend. The lead up to the day was a little stressful, with so many months going into the planning, but you made it much easier with your expert advice and calming influence! We had an even better day than we had imagined and we can’t thank you enough! We hope to come and stay at the campsite for many years to come and visit the barns whenever we can! Thank you again, lots of love from Holly and Mike

Our wedding day couldn't have gone better, despite multiple threats of lockdowns and changing guidance we always felt that with Nic at Gwynant Barns that we had the breathing space to plan whatever kind of wedding that the government would allow at the time. Nic was ever patient and always rapid in her replies, her advice and knowledge was brilliant and we were never made to feel pressured. The day itself was amazing and with Nic and Steve on hand helping to keep everything moving along all of our guests had a great time and universally the feedback from all was that it was such a relaxing and fun day "unlike most other weddings" and a day that we will treasure for all our lives" We had the barn to eat in and the lake to play in, it was awesome. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts
