  • "Enjoyed the stay, we're getting on a bit so going up and down the outside stairs was a bit of a nuisance for us."

    However I would recommend and book again in the Ground floor accommodation. Lovely tranquil place, garden area outside was perfect to sit outside. Ideal place for the dog as big garden. Owner was friendly and polite.

  • "The Hayloft is really conveniently located for access to Shropshire and easily commutable to North Wales and the wider area."

    Unfortunately however we wouldn’t recommend booking the Hayloft. The bed is extremely uncomfortable and far too short for anyone 5ft10+, the pillows were so flat that we went out to buy some more, and the sofa is really uncomfortable when trying to relax in an evening. There was also a really unpleasant smell of oil throughout our stay which although the owner couldn’t smell he did try to rectify; but it didn’t improve and made being in the Hayloft very unpleasant. Whilst the owner is friendly and helpful, and the tortoise is a great surprise addition, overall the Hayloft is a lot smaller than it appears on photos and there were a few too many comfort and maintenance issues for us to be satisfied with our stay.

  • "Absolutely stunning little find!"

    Beautiful location surrounded by some fantastic walks on the doorstep. Great for dogs. Local, friendly pubs serving excellent food within walking distance. Peaceful, comfortable and clean. We would love to come back! The one downside is the bed. Very small and very noisy on every movement throughout the night disrupting sleep.

    Local pub in Treflach easily accessible via a lovely cross country walk, only took 15 minutes and meant we didn’t need to use the roads! Fab.

This place is well worth a visit. Do it...

The property

Trefonen 1.6 miles.

Resting alongside the Shropshire/Wales border giving you easy access towards the beautiful Snowdonia National Park, is this charming two-storey barn conversion.

The Hayloft has been converted into a stylish and contemporary base for couples seeking a rural escape.

Stepping inside, you will be welcomed to an open-plan kitchen/diner, with a dining area so you can gather for a romantic meal, or bring some board games from home for those quieter evenings and have a friendly game.

There is a double bedroom with matching bedside tables and lamps, ideal for some late night reading, whilst the family shower room provides plenty of deluxe fixtures and fittings for a long soak after a tiring day.

Follow the steps up to the second-floor, which offers a sitting area where you can spend your evening keeping up to date with all your favourite shows and enjoying quality time together, or indulge in a film night and break out the popcorn.

The property has access to a decking area where you can take a refreshing drink and soak up the sun rays.

Accessed via a quiet country lane, the surrounding area is ideal for a morning stroll through the woodland with your furry companion by your side.

Close by is the National Trail of Offa's Dyke Path, spanning across 177 miles and ideal for spotting some wildlife and superb mountainous views.

Oswestry is home to a number of traditional eateries and independent shops, whilst the surrounding area has a number of historical sites such as the 12th century Whittington Castle and the National Trust property of Chirk Castle.

The Hayloft is the place to visit for its grand walks and sightseeing opportunities.

Trefonen is a rural village which stands between the ancient English border town of Oswestry and the Welsh village of Llanhaeadr-ym-Mochnant, home to Pistyll Rhaeadr, the UK’s highest single drop waterfall. This traditional village boasts a pub, shop and has Offa's Dyke pathway running through the village. It is located close to where the successful 1995 film “The Englishman Who Went up a Hill but Came Down a Mountain” was filmed. The whole area is surrounded by lovely countryside, which extends into the Berwyn Mountain Range - perfect for wonderful scenic walks and cycle trails, including along the Berwyn Ridge Pathway, the Offa’s Dyke Path and through the beautiful Tanat and Ceiriog Valleys. Visit the riverside town of Llangollen with the nearby Pontcysyllte Aqueduct (a World Heritage Site), Chirk and Powis Castles and Gardens, Erddig and Attingham Park, or visit the nearby market town of Ellesmere. Further afield lies the Welsh mountains and coast and picturesque Lakes Vyrnwy and Bala, while the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, medieval Shrewsbury and the Roman city of Chester are also within driving distance.
