  • “Wow what a time we had.”


    The stay was amazing from start to finish. I couldn’t fault the place however to make things that extra bit better. It’s a 11 person place so only one iron and ironing board was a bit of a pain. The hot tub although lovely was a pain trying to get hot and then the amount of wood it requires can become really expensive. Also maybe more then one towel each. The whole place has underfloor heating so it’s hard to get your towel dry. However we had a amazing time and have decided to make this a twice yearly trip with all our friends.

The property

Corwen 6 miles.

Enjoying a beautiful position in the North Wales countryside is this wonderful barn conversion, Drovers Barn.

Reached via a private track and electric gates, Drovers Barn is a secluded getaway for eleven guests seeking a relaxing, luxury base to enjoy with loved ones.

Enter into the stylish kitchen on arrival and be immediately impressed by the wonderful offering of appliances in this culinary haven, with two electric ovens, two fridges, a wine cooler, and many more at your fingertips, you can look forward to evenings spent around the breakfast bar with a glass of wine while food simmers on the hob.

Delight in coming together around the dining table in the next room for family meals, with a TV in the corner perfect for catching up on the news with breakfast.

A handy cloakroom can be accessed from the kitchen, whilst heading back through the kitchen and up four steps brings you into the heart of the home; the spacious sitting room features a beautiful wood burning stove in the corner, placed perfectly before the large corner sofa where you can wind down as you watch the Smart TV.

In the summer months, grab a cold beverage from the drinks cooler in here and bring the outside in by opening up the stunning bi-fold doors that lead onto the patio, where a long outdoor dining table and chairs and fire pit makes the perfect spot for alfresco meals, with outdoor automatic lighting and a luxurious hot tub to relax in beneath the stars.

Of the five beautiful bedrooms which are all complete with a TV in each, two are accessed via the staircase by the dining room; discover a lovely twin bedroom and a king size bedroom with an en-suite shower room.

From the sitting room, take one step up and find another king size bedroom with an en-suite shower room, whilst continuing along the hall and up a further six steps brings you to the immaculate wet room where you can feel refreshed with a morning rinse before beginning your day.

Completing the layout are the two final bedrooms reached via a few more steps, comprising a king size room with an en-suite shower room and a triple bunk room.

When you can tear yourself away from this fabulous property, take a trip over to the charming market town of Corwen, set around the flowing River Dee and the meeting point of five river valleys, it's a lovely location enhanced by the many local amenities at hand, including butchers, bakers and greengrocers.

Delight in an afternoon treat at one of the cafés or pubs after a morning of walking in the surrounding area, with Corwen resting within the Clwydian Range and the Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it has many scenic areas to explore.

Embark on a journey back in time on a vintage steam train from Corwen to Llangollen on the Llangollen Heritage Steam Railway, taking you through picturesque countryside before arriving in the pretty town.

While you're in Llangollen, visit Plas Newydd Historic House & Gardens, Llangollen Museum or head out on another trip with The Horse Drawn Boat Centre taking you to Britain's largest aqueduct, Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

Avid adventurers should venture over towards the Snowdonia National Park to Lake Bala where exciting watersports await you, as well as plenty of walking and cycling opportunities through breath-taking landscapes.

Make memories to last forever in North Wales at Drovers Barn.
