  • "Wow!! This place is amazing"

    ! Thank you so much to the kind owners who were on hand with anything we needed. Location is stunning and the property has been finished to such a high standard. All of the bedrooms are individual and interesting. Beds were so comfortable and it was lovely having so many en suites as we had 8 people staying. Very well equipped, we didn't leave the property for the whole time we stayed as everything we needed was there. Beautiful views, we will definitely book again!

  • "The pictures don't do this place justice."

    It is absolutely beautiful in an incredible location. The way they've blended the 16th century farmhouse with the modern decorating is lovely. The hot tub by the flowing river in the winter months is a great touch. A really special place for our 10 person family to spend Christmas. Will definitely return.

  • "We received a lovely welcome from Eirian The house is beautiful and tastefully decorated."

    It was interesting hearing and seeing the development of the property. The views that surround you are incredible, and it’s very peaceful. The bedrooms are all equally beautiful, so you won’t need to fight over who gets which one. There is one bedroom up some steep stairs, so bear that in mind if you’re planning to use all 5 bedrooms and are less mobile Would definitely recommend & return. Thanks!

  • "Thank you so much for renting to us this fabulous, well located, clean, comfortable, spacious and luxurious house."

    We had such a wonderful time with all the comforts that we could have wanted. The owner of the property was at hand should we have needed them and the warm welcome we received was really lovely. We combined families for our break and to sit at the large open-plan kitchen table having our meals together and playing cards was really something wonderful. We will be booking again - such a treat of a place, Loved it and didn't want to leave !!

  • "Beautiful location."

    Plenty of room to spread out in the farmhouse. Hot tub was great and enjoyed by all of us. Host was more than helpful and very welcoming. Plenty of things to do in the surrounding area. Definitely need a car though. Somewhere I would think of going back to.

  • "A beautiful blend between old and new!"

    We had the most fabulous holiday at Plas Glan yr Afon for my husband's 40th Birthday. The accommodation was so beautiful and had everything we needed. The owner Eirian was so accommodating and helpful with any questions we had during our stay and was great to recommend places to go. Our children absolutely loved the window in the floor that you could look through to the lower floor. Every detail in the refurbishment of this gorgeous old barn has been thought of, blending seamlessly the old and the new features. We would highly recommend to anyone.

  • "We had the best time, we loved the design of all the rooms, each with its own individual style and it was the perfect size for 8 people."

    It was spacious and super comfortable with lots of seating options to relax, eat and chat, loved the fire place and hot tub with its beautiful views, all perfect for spending quality time with fried sand family. The showers and bath were all amazing and the kitchen had everything we needed. The host was very friendly and attentive. The Wi-Fi wasn’t that great but other than that it was fantastic vacation and wished we could have stayed longer but we will definitely be back.

  • "Lovely cottage in a remote location, finished to a really high standard."

    My family enjoyed a great bank holiday weekend stay. For those considering working while on the break, the wi-fi is via Vodafone hotspot but got a steady 40mbps during our stay, so no issues there. The TV is also sat in a media wall, so no scope to plug in consoles should the children fancy playing video games. The stairs to 2 of the bedrooms are very step, so worth considering for those with mobility issues. Overall, a brilliant stay, our host was lovely and we would return.

  • "It’s a beautiful newly refurbished and well equipped converted barn on a working farm, it is a good size and easily accommodated 2 families with enough space and two large living areas."

    It has lovely views. The owners are friendly and helpful. We spent Easter week here and had a great time, everything is within 20 minutes driving distance so you can enjoy some of the busier villages and attractions as well as the peace and quiet of the location and more remote walking areas. There are two pubs within short drive, one we walked to through fields. We would definitely consider coming back again.

  • "A wonderful stay in a wonderful cottage!"

    Ten of us stayed in this fantastic, converted building in beautiful surroundings. It is spacious enough for ten, yet feels cosy and warm with lovely underfloor heating downstairs and a huge hearth with log burner in the main living space (there are more, big cosy sofas downstairs than in the current pictures). The whole space is beautifully decorated and comfortably furnished, with thoughtful nods to the building’s history. The place is well equipped and what's not to like about a hot tub overlooking the river and hills! A great location just a few miles from the A55, superb for exploring North Wales and with more local walks over public footpaths. We found this cottage at the last minute on Sykes and I cannot rate it highly enough; it’s a beautiful place to stay, either as a base for more exploring or a relaxing time with family and friends. Wonderful.

The property

With stunning countryside views, Plas Glan Yr Afon is a 16th century Grade II listed building set on a working farm in Llangernyw, North Wales.

With grounds home to cattle and with a wealth of characterful features including an inglenook fireplace, exposed stone and original timber touches reused within the renovation, this fabulous property seamlessly blends character and contemporary.

Step inside the grand open-plan living space, hang your coat on the old saddle hooks, and find everything you need for a celebration with loved ones; the sleek kitchen is fit with all the appliances the chef of could want to whip up tasty dinners, while the pew-seat dining table offers a space to catch up about your day.

From here, take the open-tread staircase up to the first-floor sitting room, fit with a media wall with a Smart TV and electric fire to snuggle up in front of for your evening entertainment.

When sleep calls, find five beautifully decorated bedrooms where you can catch your rest; the ‘pink room’ is home to a stunning reupholstered French bed and a showcased exposed original wall, while the ‘green room’ boasts a grand headboard, lovingly repurposed from an old stable, with an en-suite shower room complete with a unique stone sink.

Moving through the property, the family bathroom steals the show with a spacious freestanding bath and a walk-in shower to freshen up in, and steep stairs lead up to two more bedrooms, fit with vaulted ceilings and skylights.

The last bedroom is ideal for those with limited mobility and rests on the ground floor, with a gorgeous en-suite shower room, river views and zip and link beds, with easy access to the patio.

Spend your mornings, afternoons, or evenings in the garden, where you can dine al fresco or soak in the hot tub while admiring the vast countryside views.

With its lovely Welsh cottages and stunning landscape, Llangernyw is the ideal spot to escape the hustle and bustle of city life; those with a fishing rod licence may relax along the river Elwy on the property, catching the likes of brown trout and salmon.

You'll also have easy access to some fantastic destinations, like the majestic, Grade I listed Gwrych Castle, via scenic drives along the popular B-road route.

Visit Saint Digain, one of Wales's oldest churches, and don't forget to walk along the coastline cycling route.

The evocative Plas Mawr, a 16th-century Elizabethan townhouse, and the lovely Quay Street, with its pretty stores and eateries, are among highlights.
