    • “Fantastic accomodation and relaxed stay”

    • “The cottage is tucked away in an idyllic location. On arrival we had milk, eggs, a bottle of wine and some shortbread and even a childrens magazine for our 4 year old daughter. The accomodation was fantastic and had the high chair and cot for our little one all set up. Our daughters loved watching the lambs and sheep in the field opposite and the location is good for getting round North Wales.”

    • “My partner and I went with my 1 year old baby in the summer for my birthday. We loved it. The hens tapping in the door and the sheep roaming about was great. The hosts put up a baby gate and travel cot for our child. There was a birthday cake and bottle of wine waiting for me on arrival. The place was spotless and tastefully decorated and the bathroom is beautiful. The views are stunning and it's so peaceful! We are hoping to go back very soon. Loved it.”

    • “My wife and I, along with our 5 month old, stayed at the cottage for 1 week. It has been lovingly restored by the owners who are extremely friendly and made perfect hosts. Lots of thought has been put into this, with great attention to detail. On arrival, goodies were provided, so after a long drive we could make cups of tea with cake, taste their own free range eggs from the chickens and sipped our complimentary bottle of wine. Small things like soaps included, sugar at the ready, dishwasher tablets stocked etc meant that we didn't have to go to the shops for anything other than our own main meal ingredients. That is a really welcome thing when you arrive after a long drive, and those small things take effort to continuously stock up and provide that added value to guests. That effort, is a reflection on the owners, who have provided a peaceful and private space to relax in. A previous review mentions a short walk to get to the cottage from the parking. This did not put us off, and indeed on arrival we discovered that the 'short walk', is just 20 meters from where the car is parked on the drive to where the door to the cottage is. It was not a reason not to visit, and we had no trouble with our 6 month old, even when there was thunder and lightning! The bedrooms are in a converted roof space. Space is tight, I am 6'1", but frankly, I loved the atmosphere created by being snuggly tucked up in a cosy space. The owners made space for us to put a cot (provided) in the second bedroom, and we had no issues in enjoying the cosiness of the bedroom spaces. It is standing height in the middle of the room, and is only intrusive in trying to walk down the side of the bed - not an issue for us, and adds character and enjoyment to a week away. All in all, I would fully recommend this cottage to all couples, couples & baby and couples with school age children etc - You may think twice with crawlers/toddlers due to the open plan spacious living downstairs, but it wouldn't stop us. The downstairs is perfectly appointed, and we greatly enjoyed eating breakfast on the completely private patio in the morning sun overlooking the roaming sheep on the expansive views. See our afternoon tea photo attached. An exciting setting with chickens and sheep, and fetch your own eggs fun!”

    • “We had the pleasure of being the first guests to stay at Hafan Haydn and we werent disappointed. The barn has been lovingly restored and it was a comfortable stay. The house was in a quiet rural location and close to town, shops, pub etc. The views from the cottage were lovely. The owners were very helpful and we would stay again if we were to go back to North Wales.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The cottage is decorated to a very high standard with stunning views and great amenities within the cottage. We went with two young children and felt that it wasn't quite appropriate for young children as there were no doors separating the lounge from the dining room and no doors from the dining room to the kitchen so we had to put one of the stair gates there but otherwise this is a great place to stay if you have older children. Also the car parking is a little way from the cottage and this was tricky for us with small children. Great communication from the owners and lots of eggs and a welcome pack there for us which we really enjoyed.”

    • “One of the best, peaceful and lovely holidays we have ever had. Everything was brilliant, and the surrounding nature was great. Now we know what we are missing at home.”

    Ms Kuntzsch, Fischbachtal, September 2015

    • “Had a warm welcome from friendly and helpful hosts. It was a delightful comfortable cottage, with many thoughtful extras provided by the hosts. The location was close enough to good transport links, yet was quiet and peaceful, and conveniently located for access to the many attractions of north Wales - such as world class gardens, the Vale of Clwyd etc.”

    Mr Hatherly, Craven Arms, June 2015

    • “Hafan Haydn was a beautifully reconstructed barn which was delightful inside and contained everything we needed. The property was right out in the country; surrounded by sheep, cows and scenery yet located close to shops. Perfect in every way.”

    Mr Collett, Johannesburg, May 2015

    • “The cottage was fantastic, a perfect home from home - it was so cosy especially when the log fire was lit. The owners are wonderful, so helpful and accommodating. Will definitely be returning.”

    Mrs Darley, Hartlepool, December 2014

    • “We spent our Christmas here and we could not fault the cottage at all. Ideally situated with great views but not too far away from the local town and other main towns. The owners are very welcoming and go that extra mile to make you feel welcome. The cottage is great with a modern touch and very good feel to it. The best Christmas we have had as a family.”

    Mr Cross, Northwich, December 2014

    • “I spent ages choosing our welsh cottage and was thrilled that Hafan Haydn was just as perfect as I had hoped when booking it nearly a year in advance. It was lovely, loads of charm, peace and quiet, and every morning I was woken up by the owls .... perfect.”

    Miss Wilson, October 2014

    • “An excellent property, with a very good standard of finish. The location and the panoramic views were an added bonus.”

    Miss Handisides, Sheffield, October 2014

    Mrs Goddard, Barnoldswick, September 2014
