The Llyn Gwynant barns are an outstanding venue for celebrations of all kinds, and the function barn is licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies.
See our barn rates page for prices.
These imposing stone buildings are set in a very beautiful natural location overlooking Llyn Gwynant lake, with private fields surrounding them.
The cost of hiring the barns for an event includes the use of both fields for tents, small campervans, caravans (if sited beside the hedgerow) and for marquees, bouncy castles or other facilities, if you check with us in advance.
To get married in Llyn Gwynant barns you will need to contact the Gwynedd Registrars office: telephone 01766 771 000, or you can email them on firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to check with us however that the barns are available for the date you want, as they can be heavily booked.
All barns are used for an event.
- The Function barn is a wonderful space with its high roof, tall oak windows, a stage at one end and large glass doors looking down to the lake. There is also a stone fireplace in the room with a large woodburner. This is a truly beautiful place which our photos can only partly express.
is approximately 12 m by 12 m and can accommodate up to 300 people, or about 130 seated at tables, see the many images on the pages to the left, as well as our floor plan.
Globe lights hang from the ceiling and there are mood lights on the stone pillars. Power points include one of 30 amp on the stage suited to sound systems. A PA system and professional stage lighting is for hire, see Equipment hire and Facilities pages on our website.

Furniture in the Camping barn includes sturdy wooden tables, benches and seating around a wood-burning stove, see our Facilities page for images as well as barn photos page 1.
An interior door leads fromt he Camping to the Bunk barn with alpine style sleeping platforms for 20 – 30 people as well as floor space and shelves for storage.
- The barn yard outside these buildings has room for parking about 30 cars, with parking for 10 - 20 more vehicles around the barns, and overflow parking on teh campsite driveway and carpark. There is also an outside toilet block in barn yard which has 2 gents, 2 urinals and one ladies. Internal toilets and showers are presently under construction.
- There are two camping fields outside the yard, Barn field and Cae hendre, neither visible from the campsite. Both are very beautiful and available to those hiring the barns for marquees, tent camping or small campervans. If you do not wish to have any camping you still have use of the fields as they ensure the privacy of your event. Parking in barn field is sometimes allowed by arrangement if the ground is sufficiently dry. Parking can be available below Cae hendre by arrangement.

We can help you organise your celebration by providing a list of local suppliers who have provided services at the barns, as well as a list of equipment we offer for hire at competitive weekend rate, see our equipment hire page.
