The village of Overton-on-Dee stands amidst delightful countryside close to the English border, offering a perfect base from which to explore North Wales, Cheshire and Shropshire. Situated on an escarpment around which the River Dee winds its course, this charming village boasts a fine collection of 18th Century buildings, a small selection of local shops, a great restaurant and a traditional pub. The nine Meres of Ellesmere are also nearby, created during the glacial period and now providing scenic walks, boat trips, sailing, fishing and bird watching opportunities to the many visitors that travel from near and far. Ellesmere also has a broad variety of attractive buildings including St Mary's Church, which dates back to the Norman Conquest, whilst offering a fine selection of shops and no less than nine pubs in addition to an annual beer festival, making this an ideal holiday location all year round.

Previous visitors' comments about Little Pentre Barn:
We used the location as a music video set. The overall surroundings of the cottage was very tranquil and set the correct tone for our music video. The owner was very helpful in clarifying issues we had at the time.
Mr Solanki, Stafford, March 2013
Excellent location. Very quaint cottage. Friendly owner who had the log fire burning upon our arrival and had biscuits and a jug of milk so we could have a cuppa. Lovely taverns around the area including The boat and Cross Foxes. Went to Lion Quays spa for the day. Finished off going on the bikes to llandegla forest, which was awesome! Thanks.

Mrs Thompson, Port Coquitlam, June 2012
We enjoyed the freedom to be able to come and go. We were also very close to family and being able to invite them for a meal was good, we will return again as it's a good point for visiting places in North Wales.
