    The bedroom and downstairs bathroom is great but could do with grab rails and shower chair to make it even better!

  • "Great property in a beautiful setting."

    The house is a great size for us as a family; the decor and amenities are of a high standard. My daughter uses a wheelchair and requires the use of a roll in shower. The two bedrooms on the ground floor have walk in showers with no doors. Whilst the showers were a little snug for a caregiver helping her, they worked for our visit. The host helped us in any way he could and was keen to have feedback on the accessibility of the property. A great stay and we hope to visit again.

    The beds were so comfortable and all the facilities you'd need. We really enjoyed the hot tub and going for a walk in the surrounding countryside (on the allocated walking paths). We would love to return and would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful trip in beautiful surroundings.

    Absolutely beautiful house with a beautiful setting. Fully enjoyed sitting and relaxing in the hot tub looking around at the beautiful views. The sand pit and garden was perfect for all the children, we played many of games out there and the little ones spend hours in the sand. Everything we needed was within the home. Lovely places near by and the views on the drive are spectacular. We will be 100% booking again and bringing along more of our family to hopefully come stay with us. The host was absolutely lovely, so helpful. He always had time to talk and was polite and understanding.

  • "We just wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude for providing such a wonderful vacation rental."

    Our group of 3 families thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Y stable cottage. The hot tub was a particular highlight, and the kids loved it. The private hot tub was a fantastic add-on to unwind and relax after a day of exploring the local area. We also enjoyed the Market Square take away, which had great food. A special mention to Hugh, the owner of the cottage, who was responsive and attentive to us to ensure we had a comfortable and enjoyable stay. He went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay. The bedrooms were also very comfortable and spacious, which made it easy for our families to relax and enjoy our time together. We were all so impressed with the cottage and the surrounding area that we are already talking about planning another trip back. We will definitely keep your cottage at the top of our list for future vacations. Thank you again for providing such a fantastic rental. We had a great time and are looking forward to returning soon. Regards Rag , Nag, Kiran

    The house is beautiful with a gorgeous views from every window. There’s everything in the house that you could possibly need. The beds are so comfy. We had snow whilst we were there which was lovely for the grandchildren to play in and also lovely sat in the hot tub watching it. The only negative comment I would make is the settee upstairs is very hard, we all ended up sitting downstairs. Would definitely recommend for a peaceful holiday away from everything.

    Location was lovely - had a meal at one of the local pubs on the first evening, and we also visited the waterfall for a walk. The property was lovely and clean and had everything we needed - the downstairs was the perfect entertaining area and the hot tub was fabulous, although not quite up to temperature on the first night. Would highly recommend and definitely consider staying here again.

  • "We had a lovely week at The Stable."

    The place is finished to an great standard. Even with the address not being on Google maps it was easy to find it with the postcode and signposts. We were really happy with it on arrival, it's peaceful and quiet. You don't hear anything from the other barns and the hot tub was lovely after a day out and about, the views from the barn are beautiful, stunning to wake up to! Unfortunately the kitchen wasn't in the best state when we came to cook on the first night, it was clean to look at but all the oven trays were greasy and there was melted cheese on one of the plates in cupboard which has stuck two played together, we had to wash most things before we used them and the kettle wasn't used at all as it was black inside, glad I took my coffee maker with me. The rooms were lovely, beds are comfy enough, we had issues with the underfloor heating not.working in some rooms and wouldn't switch off in others, not ideal in august. The bathrooms look great and it was nice to have separate bathrooms but the drains on the showers don't work very well, with in 60 seconds of getting in with the waterfall shower being on it's over flowing and flooding the whole room, we gave up and used the bath but not what you except and other couples in the other rooms didn't have the option of the bath so they were mopping up for ages after and rushing in the shower to stop it going under the door in to the bedroom. I would recommend staying here but with a warning about the issues we had, not the end of the world but not what you except when paying over £2000 either.

    Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear you had an issue however nothing was reported to us during your stay. We are on hand to help Customers with any issues they may have to make sure the holiday is enjoyable for you. We have checked this out on changeover and the issue was caused by a small problem with the shower drain. This has now been fixed and is 100% working order. Thanks for your comments and bringing this to our attention. We hope to welcome you back in the future Property Owner

    A genuine rural retreat in private and secluded farm land surrounded by grazing sheep. Huw, who manages the property, built the stone barn conversion buildings himself to a very high standard.

    Only thing is the sofa and seats in the upstairs lounge are rock solid, not comfortable at all, couldn’t relax together up there which only left a few sitting on the sofas down stairs and the rest had to sit at the dinning table all night long, ended up going to bed early just to get comfortable. One of the ovens didnt work. Other than that we had a great time, and nice walks by the waterfall and Moel Sych. Owner was very friendly.

  • "We had a wonderful weekend at The Stable."

    The views from the garden and top bedrooms were outstanding! The cottage feels like it's built in a middle of nowhere so it's a perfect spot for those who want a nature escape. When we arrived we didn't find a Bbq however the owner was very quick to resolve the issue and brought the bbq half an hour later which was very nice of him. The cottage was very clean and tidy, lot's of space for families with kids. Plenty of towels,bedlinen and there were even bathrobes in every room. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed the only downside was there was no dishwashing liquid and only 2 dishwasher tablets but we bought some ourselves as it's not a big deal. Really spacious hot tub too! Highly recommend it!

    Fantastically clean and well kept. Great entertaining space in the kitchen and the hot tub is of course amazing! Owners came to check on us the second night which was kind and much appreciated and were also available at check to ensure we got in okay. Only downside is the wifi is not good which meant sadly we had to leave after the weekend and couldn’t stay for the week as unable to access work emails (working from home). However, I would not let this put you off. Enjoy the fresh air, countryside, the sheep all around and relax in the outdoor hot tub! Leave the work at home! We are planning to return again next year and I can’t wait! Thankyou for a fantastic stay!
