    Hot tub was a great hit at the end of the day for everyone

  • "Our second time at Rhianwen, it is so chilled there."

    Spotlessly clean, some fab new additions eg the outdoor sofa, outdoor blankets and firepit on the Sunrise terrace - didn't get enough opportunity to use it as we were unlucky with the weather but took every opportunity we had! The more spacious games room was excellent, the kids just loved it. The huge hot tub under the moon and stars, always a winner, so relaxing! Beautiful walks from the door when the weather allowed and fabulous local foodie experiences. A refreshing break, thank you so much. We will be back.

    The beds were so comfy. the facilities are excellent and the Hot Tub is great too especially at night with all those stars. Lowri is great too makes you feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble perfect. We will definitely be back.

  • "This is our favourite place to book."

    The location, accommodation and sheer tranquility of the barn compares to nothing else. We traveled with family the 3 bedrooms all en-suite makes this place heaven to share. Before arriving we had pre planned all our days out but ending up enjoying board games around the table and evenings in the hot tub. Just wish we could pick this place up and plonk it in other parts of the UK!! We have already booked our 2022 stay.

  • "What a fantastic conversion - beautiful, relaxing setting."

    The 3 en suite bedrooms (with the comfiest beds!) gave everyone their own space and the open plan living area brought everyone together. The children loved the games room and the large hot tub under the stars provided the perfect to end to each day. There are some fabulous wooded walks nearby, don't miss a walk through the trees at Rhydycroesau or up the mountain behind the house into the clouds. And lookout for the llamas just down the road. I'm sure the barns are delightful in the summer but they are a cosy, refreshing winter retreat too!

  • "Fantastic getaway for the family."

    As keyworkers we had been working through covid and the boys had been at school - we wanted time as a family and time to relax and this barn conversion allowed us to do this. On booking we wanted a place we would feel at home with some added extras - boys in their own space and us time to catch up over the last 6 months - to chill. The weather wasn't tbe greatest as experienced 2 storms but the comforts of the barn was all we needed. The hot tub was devine - the views amazing and we got chance to have a bbq too. Hosts were amazing very friendly and welcoming. Would stay again. Only suggestion we would have is a fixed canopy over hot tub so it could be used in all weather.

  • "Lovely peaceful location!"

    The owners were extremely friendly and cared about every part of our stay. The barns were ideal for us sharing as a family of 4 with my husbands parents too - we had more than enough space! There were also some lovely local walks that we could take the dog on and pick blackberries to make a crumble with back at the barn - definitely a highlight of the holiday for our 4 year old. We will definitely be returning again!

    Gwyn (host) was extremely welcoming & helpful & it was the perfect venue for a ‘family gathering’ of five adults. My only comment in terms of the facilities relates to the kitchen equipment. We did almost all our cooking in the barn & could have done with one or two more chopping boards & perhaps, an electric whisk but these were minor issues overall & ‘Rhianwen’ can only be highly recommended. A wonderful holiday in a very beautiful & unspoilt part of the UK.

I have to say the best of all was Farmer Jac, we all loved him he came around daily and even took my father, (94 yrs old), up to the top of the mountain. It was an idyllic holiday for us and we plan to go again, if we can find our way in the snow!!!

    The barn was of a high standard and was as described. Hot tub was excellent but unfortunately the weather was not kind to us so only managed to use it one of the days we stayed. Owners were very friendly especially farmer Jack who stopped off each day to chat to us. The views from the barn were lovely and the garden ideal for our dog but him being an escape artist he did manage to get out once!! Owners left a welcome pack of milk, eggs and biscuits which were greatly appreciated. Had a lovely relaxing week. Due to weather only managed one day out to Oswestry town centre which had lots of places to eat and shop (Aldi and Morrisons for food shopping) We shopped on line and Sainsbury's delivered ours shopping straight to the barn.

    Spotlessly clean , very well equipped with lovely bedding and fluffy towels. Bedrooms and bathrooms were very spacious with very comfortable beds , powerful showers and light up make up mirrors in bathrooms. It was great to have separate towels provided for hot tub use. I met the owners by chance on my arrival and they were very friendly and helpful . Farmer Jack drove past us a few times in his Land Rover and always had a wave and a quick word . It was a lovely touch to have milk , welsh cakes and fresh local eggs waiting for us. The under floor heating kept the whole place very cosy and warm though we did also light the log burner ... logs and firelighters were also provided. The hot tub was very large and easily seated six of us. We also used the games room one evening for table tennis and darts. There are lots of scenic walks nearby and also on the farm owners land .. full details are provided in a guest handbook. This is a beautiful barn conversion which I would thoroughly recommend .

    The cottage was beautifully presented and went beyond our expectations. The area was stunningly beautiful and the access allowed on the estate was wonderful. The only slight niggle for us, as dog owners, was that it was really suitable for pets as the garden was not secure.
