  • "The Granery is a lovely barn conversion."

    It is decorated to a very high standard. I was worried about being cold during our stay. I should not have worried. It was warm and welcoming. The bedrooms are luxurious, and comfortable. It was lovely to be in the hot tub, both during the day and evening. The views are amazing! A very pleasant touch was when I received a knock at the door, to welcome us. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. I would definitely recommend The Granary.

  • "We had an excellent long weekend, everything was absolutely perfect."

    Huw made us feel extremely welcomed, and supported should we need anything. The property was stunning - very well appointed and contained everything we needed. We’ll miss waking up to the stunning views each morning. All in all, a fabulous stay. Thank you.

  • "We had a great stay and it’s a great property, we stayed over Christmas the views are incredible and although not much is open this time of year there’s still lots to do, we explored Snowdonia, towns and local waterfalls, the fireplace and hot tub after a long walk we really enjoyed."

    We arrived to a welcome food basket and Christmas decorations. The owners were very quick to respond or fix anything and visible. It’s the first time I’ve stayed in holiday accommodation, it comes with some quirks and is not perfect especially as they are multi used. The biggest negative was the bed in the master room, it's broken and way past its best, I ended up sleeping on the sofa some nights. The experience of this type of getaway has not put me off and I would do it again.

    Thanks for the lovely comments in your review, but I'm sorry to hear you found the bed uncomfortable. It's a shame you didn't mention this during your stay, I'd have been more than happy to fix it. I've now replaced the mattress. Property Owner

    The hot tub was great. The setting is amazing - very picturesque. Despite being part of a few holiday buildings together, Y Granar is really private. Would highly recommend.

  • "Just PERFECT in every way ."

    .... The setting of the property, the facilities provided, along with the cleanliness overall, the views from the windows and the hot tub, the peace and tranquility, and just absolutely everything else, made this, our second week-long holiday at Y Granar in 3 weeks, just the most memorable holidays ever spent with our extended family. And finally, Huw, the owner, is one in a million. Many thanks to him for all his help and great chats. It's all down to Huw that we shall all return for a third visit very soon!

  • "The TV was rather high up on the wall with no means of bringing it down."

    Could it be placed further down the wall at a ‘normal’ TV height so that you are not always craning upwards. It would also be nicer if it was on a bracket so it could be angled into the room for everyone to see properly. We were only a party of four so coped but the cottage sleeps six and people would have to sit maybe too snuggly on the sofa in order to view it properly. Otherwise it was a wonderful place to stay and the owner was very welcoming.

    Had an amazing stay here as a family of five and the owner was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and he even gave us fresh eggs and changed our mattress when we mentioned it was uncomfortable. You will not regret staying here - the views are amazing in this idyllic, remote and stunning location. We can’t wait to go back to sit in the hot tub and gaze at the rolling hills and hear the sheep! Everyone had their own privacy in this complex of barns due to their clever layout. Book now!

  • "Wonderful..."

    .and these are comments just to be helpful ....not criticisms! 1. Directions should make clear it's not the FIRST entrance on the left coming from Oswestry - because the "no entry" is in a different colour we read Castellnoch Barns a thought it was the entry road 2. Oven gloves would be useful addition in kitchen 3. In big upstairs bathroom it would be good to have a shelf over or near the basin. 4. Fence is a bit too high to see the wonderful view over the hills from the table and the hot tub. But excellent ....and replacement for broken kettle in a matter of minutes was very impressive

    You can see how beautiful this house is on the photos but decor and views when we arrived were even more amazing. So warm and cosy with the underfloor heating plus the log fire. A lovely little welcome basket full of treats which was so thoughtful. Thank you, we only wished we’d of booked a Longer stay. We will definitely be booking up again and hopefully get enough friends to fill all three of the properties.

    The accommodation was well thought out and very spacious. The small complex of 4 accommodations were well designed outside as well with lots of space and privacy from the others, and the surrounding countryside was stunning. We were a party of 2 couples and the ground floor ensuite bedroom was ideal for myself and my husband who is disabled. The two upstairs bedrooms both also had ensuites and both had wonderful views. We especially enjoyed the hot tub with its views and the homely but tasteful interior. We found lots to do in the area.
