  • "It was a stunning barn conversion and the gardens were beautiful."

    Our hosts were very friendly and helpful and invited us to share their picturesque gardens. We enjoyed the lovely views from the lounge and the well equipped kitchen with its Aga which was a new experience for us! It was great to have two bathrooms and so much space overall. The surrounding countryside was beautiful and we enjoyed a wonderful week’s cycling. We would highly recommend a stay here!

  • "Ty Camlad is a gem."

    Alan,Sandra and Rebecca could not have done more to make us feel welcome and at home. The barn itself is magnificent and extremely well-equipped. One minor problem (which is beyond anyone’s control) is the noise of the road but it would be churlish to hold that against what is one of the finest holiday let’s that we have experienced. Our best Regards to Keith!

    The website couldn't process the payment so I had to call and pay over the phone. Not a big issue but it was an issue.

  • "One of the most friendliest welcomes we have had in years."

    Nothing was too much trouble for the family. The barn is absolutely stunning in a beautiful and quiet part of the world. The owners are directly adjacent to the barn, but you feel you have your own area as it has been segregated off from the owners. Easy access to many areas in mid Wales. It's so nice not to have to clean utensils etc before use, everywhere was spotless. A suggestion to make the stay even better would be, it would be useful to have a small table with mirror in the bedroom and some blinds for privacy in the main barn. Even though it's not over looked. We had the most wonderful stay, lovely weather and would definitely return again.

  • "Ty Camlad is a stunning barn that has been refurbished to a luxurious standard with exposed wooden beams and breathtaking high ceilings."

    It is like stepping into your very own Grand Designs (complete with photo book to show the refurbishment!). The owners warmly welcomed us on arrival and provided lots of helpful ideas on where to visit during our short stay (including an OS map for walks which was useful to help navigation in the snow). The Stiperstones walk was beautiful, made even better by returning to light the log burner, and dry our walking boots by the Aga. We had the most relaxing peaceful break in an area of the country we didn't previously know. There was lots to do and our only regret was not staying longer than the short break. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ty Camlad to friends, family or anyone reading this review.

  • "The barn is ideally located to get easily into the Shropshire hills and to Offa's Dyke as walking was one of the reasons for visiting the area ."

    It is also a quiet setting to relax and unwind. The Jones family were on hand if required to answer questions and helpfully provide some aga cookbooks in the property. The free log basket with others available to purchase thereafter is great although the property was snug with warmth from the aga so I did not use them. I will recommend the property to others without hesitation and am looking for dates to book in 2015.

    We will have no hesitation in recommending to friends and are quite likely to visit again in the future ourselves. Of particular note was the friendliness of the owners who made our holiday extremely enjoyable. The whole area is wonderful. You should be grateful that the owners have chosen Sykes Cottages to advertise their holiday let.
