    So, we use Trip Advisor a lot ourselves and always try to keep reviews objective. The positives - - the coach house has been renovated to a high spec. - the rental price for 10 of us was great - the BBQ hut and chill out Zone were well used - there is an honesty box for the robe and towel hire, to drop the money in - the owners were very approachable if needed The Helpful tips- - Read all the instructions before you start doing anything / there are a lot though! - Cover the drain in the wet room - take a torch - don't expect a meet and greet service, the key is in the door and they do leave you to your own devices. - there are lovely walks in the area The not so positive bits (personal thoughts) - The tub and sauna are WoodFired, and for someone like me who loves the smell and sound of a woodburner this all sounds very romantic. The downside is it is very high maintenance- it takes approx 4hours to heat up for use,once it gets going and you have to regularly add wood during this time, and you cannot use it in the mornings as it cools down overnight. Then you run the gauntlet of the water suddenly getting very hot and you have to add cold water to bring it back down - that in itself turned out to be a challenge as the hose was connected to electrical timer, once we worked out all the switches in the hut (again .. read all the instructions fully first!) - the walk from the house to Zone is around the driveway, there was a security light at the rear then another at the gate but you are practically there before it comes on and it is very dark-another sensor light on the corner of the house would help massively- but we improvised and used our phone lights. - the house is in the middle of a stable yard, and the owners property so do not expect isolation - this is referred to in the information I think but just be aware. - they have two beautiful dogs who are very friendly and do join you - the jack Russell on arrival joined me in the car - some of us loved it but some are allergic, so just be prepared. - Flies were an issue - not as many as previous reviews but they were a constant presence. Hopefully for others going later as the weather gets colder this will stop, but farms, horses, etc ... - there was no where to dry towels and wet bathers in the house. There was a tumble dryer outside in the garage though. All in all, our weekend was what we made it, there are some lovely touches here and rental cost good value but we have probably been put off from renting anywhere again with wood fired equipment- purely our choice but somebody in the party could never fully relax as you are always thinking about lighting up, topping up and cleaning out. Thank you to the owners for the lovely home and the facility of the Chill out Zone

The property

Llanyblodwel 1.5 miles.

This detached barn conversion is situated on the owners’ smallholding on the outskirts of Llanyblodwel, in Shropshire.

A Grade II listed property that has been lovingly renovated to create a welcoming, character cottage, decorated and furnished in a classic country style.

The entrance hall leads through into an attractive, comfy sitting room with a full-height picture window and a woodburner set against a feature stone wall.

The kitchen is well equipped and thoughtfully laid out with a lantern-style roof light and a large social dining area for guests to eat and relax in comfort.

There are five well-appointed bedrooms, including a ground floor twin offering en-suite shower facilities in a wet room, which also benefits from wide doors and grab rails and may therefore suit the less mobile.

There are two first floor bedrooms with king-size beds and the master also enjoys an en-suite shower room, while two further bedrooms have the option of being made up as super king-size doubles or twins.

Enjoy dining alfresco in the private, secluded garden with a cobbled patio, which is sheltered by woodland and provides a delightful, tranquil spot to sit and relax whilst enjoying the surrounding wildlife and country air.

The owners have thoughtfully provided a Scandinavian-style log cabin with an internal barbecue stove with a shower and WC attached and small kitchen area so everything you need is ready and waiting!

There is a multi-level decked area and outdoor sofas and a table for you to relax in the warm weather or there is ample room around the wood fire in the barbecue hut.

There is also a wood-fired cedar barrel sauna and hot tub, allowing you to enjoy a steam and soak before tucking into a tasty barbecue.

There are many scenic hill walks from this superb cottage, through the Tanat Valley and onto the nearby Berwyn Mountains, and access can be found onto the popular Offa's Dyke footpath with ease.

Enjoy day trips to the Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall, visit the world Heritage site of Ironbridge with its many museums and craft shops, or enjoy a trip to Lake Vyrnwy with its numerous water sports activities and circular walks, before returning to this delightful holiday cottage to plan tomorrow's activities.

The village is surrounded by stunning countryside and boasts the Grade I listed St. Michael’s Church and a 15th century pub. Only six miles away is the ancient English border town of Oswestry and the Welsh village of Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant, home to Pistyll Rhaeadr, the UK’s highest single drop waterfall. 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 surrounding 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 the nearby market town of Ellesmere with its nine meres. Further afield are the Welsh mountains and coast, picturesque Lakes of Vyrnwy and Bala, while the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge, medieval Shrewsbury and the Roman city of Chester are also within driving distance.
