  • "Fantastic cottage with everything you need in a stunning location."

    We had a wonderful time and the hot tub was a hit with all. We will definitely be back.

  • "Lovely cottage."

    The downside is that it’s quite isolated and the hot tub was a pain (and fuelled at our expense). It was difficult to regulate so could get scalding hot. The cottage itself was well laid out and very clean with great facilities.

  • "The cottage was beautiful and I would definitely stay there again."

    However I had a problem with the hot water to the cottage, the 2nd and 3rd day of our stay we had none in the evening even with the booster to the hot water system being activated. A couple of items added to the kitchen would have been good, these were sharp knives, pizza cutter and a larger teapot. Loved the cottage and grounds, the whole family really enjoyed themselves. Thanks.

  • "A superb facility."

    We enjoyed a family Christmas there very much. We got to grips with the wood fired hot-tub quite easily. The only drawback was the lounge furniture. The L shaped sofa is extremely uncomfortable and the small two seater settee and two single chairs are not fit for purpose. We were nine in total and when the outside weather is wet and cold you need a comfortable lounge. This would be enough for us not to book another stay at Drovers Barn which would be such a shame. Clean, warm and very well presented. Thank you.

  • "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.

    Would highly recommend

  • "A lovely barn conversation in beautiful countryside."

    We enjoyed the hot tub but a wood fired tub is certainly quite challenging to manage. Beautiful inside with very comfortable beds, however, it does lack space for muddy shoes and wet coats and no tumble drier for wet towels. Also although garden is enclosed, there is only a low wall on one side, no match for our cockapoo! Small details only, we had a lovely stay and fortunately lovely weather.

  • "The barn itself and views were amazing."

    The down side was the hot tub - there isn’t a temperature control on it making it hard to judge it’s heat. In addition, chlorine tablets had been left in but the device didn’t seem to be working as they were still in it at end of week. The owners didn’t come to check it daily which is what we are used to from previous experiences and we couldn’t top it up. Previous people who had used the toasting machine hadn’t cleaned it which meant we had to do that before using it. This should have been checked. This all stated we did enjoy our stay. These are things they could be improved on.

  • "This is a fantastic barn conversion in an excellent location to explore Wales."

    I would recommend this property to anyone wishing to visit Snowdonia, Anglesey and the surrounding area. The house is clean, modern, well equipped and thoughtfully designed. Please don’t get a takeaway from Abuls Indian Restaurant in Corwen. I have never had such a dreadful Indian meal.

  • "Excellent cottage - specced out really well."

    Owners didn't hesitate to splash out on the property - everything was to a high standard. The only issue was the Internet however even then I feel bad mentioning it because you are in a remote area away from the rest of the world, however I was unable to do my work based on the Internet quality and also it being unsecured without any registration requirements did raise a concern to me- maybe add a password to the Internet connection or even a registration requirement? Overall, the property was amazing with plenty of space and rooms to enjoy!
