  • "An absolutely beautiful property in a beautiful location."

    It was lovely to get three generations of the family together after such a long time. The Barn was well equipped, spacious and the hot tub was a bonus. Thank you!

  • "Outstanding stay at the Barn."

    From the moment we arrived we were blown away by the beauty of the property, its location and the surroundings. The property was 5 stars, really high hygiene standards, amazing facilities and extremely welcoming, It exceeded our expectations. We were a family group on our first get together since covid so it was lovely to have found a property that ticked all the boxes. Thank you to Julia for being a superb host. We have made so many memories whilst on our short stay at your beautiful Barn.

    Such a lovely review. Thank you, you were great guests and thank you for respecting the property and other guests staying in the complex. It was great to meet you. Kind regards Julia and Lee. Property Owner

  • "Spectacular property."

    Party of eight friends to celebrate my birthday. The open plan living suited us perfectly for our festivities. We enjoyed, mostly, good weather, nice walk to the nearby pub, The Blue Lion. Also terrified ourselves at Zipworld on Velocity2. The property was warm and very well equipped, there are no negatives at all. The view was totally absorbing from the living area, especially when the Pheasants and Canada geese came to feed nearby. We all loved our time at The Barn and wouldn't hesitate to visit again. Thank you, Julia.

    We bought eggs from the owner they were the best too. The only thing we all said would be a nice feature would be a long fire, but that's because we love them on a cold winter's night. Thanks for a great stay.

    Ample parking available and within the property the kitchen was well stocked with cups, plates bowls and utensils. Lovely gesture of milk and eggs provided on arrival. Strong enough WiFi setting to support multiple phones as well as Netflix. Plenty of space both inside and outside the property for 6 adults and a toddler. Would recommend

  • "Our family of eight (three generations) had a fabulous holiday at the Barn."

    everyone had enough of their own space and the living areas were more than adequate for us. We loved every minute and my granddaughter keeps asking when we can go back to our holiday house! This is a great place for groups and families as there is so much to do for all ages the surrounding area and yet if you just want to put your feet up, sit in the hot tub and admire the view you couldn’t get a more perfect setting.

  • "The cottage is a spacious well laid out property which is supplied extremely well with all you would need for your holiday."

    The hosts are extremely friendly and helpful and the house was vey clean and well furnished. The cottage is in a complex of 4 properties and not very private with communal areas and the hot tubs offer very little privacy but the standard of the build and maintenance outside is excellent. The local town does not have a lot to offer in terms of restaurants etc but Llangollen has much more and only a 25 min drive. Lots of lovely places to visit locally. The only real Issue is that the Wi-fi is extremely temperamental and the mobile phone signal poor given the rural location which as we had teenage children was frustrating but may not be important to other travellers. All in all would highly recommend as a lovely place to stay and explore the local area.

    Hot tub could do with a privacy fence around it as you are very near the next property’s hot tub so not private. Internet not that good and there are no taxi firms willing to pick up. All in all lovely peaceful stay

    Thank you for staying at The Barn and leaving a review, we are glad you enjoy your stay at our property. Unfortunately due to the rural area the WiFi we have available is the basic package. We have not placed a fence around the hot tub as we feel the views of the river Dee and rolling mountains are too good to miss. Property Owner

  • "Fabulous property, very spacious & extremely clean."

    Perfect kitchen/dining/living room space for 2 families to socialise & play games. The owner was extremely friendly & helped us when the WiFi went down. Lovely local walks. Due to the narrow roads we drove into the village with the dogs & took footpaths along the river from there. Sheep everywhere in Wales so couldn’t let dogs off the lead. We drove to beaches to walk the dogs as you were guaranteed no sheep! Beaches were beautiful. The Welsh weather didn’t spoil it!!

  • "We had a brilliant holiday at the barn with the family."

    Decided early in lockdown that travelling abroad was going to be difficult so my daughters, partners, son and grandkids etc (9 in total) decided to book The Barn was exactly as described, if anything even more spacious. The views are amazing out of the main living area and the grassed area makes the property feel even more spacious. This is a shared area and we made full use with badminton, rounders etc. Kids loved it. Bear in mind the neighbours in the other houses have equal right to use this area but did not tend to although we really wouldn’t have minded at all. Everyone loved the hot tub, only 4 at a time so we had shifts but that never caused an issue as you could sit by the hot tub and chat to the people in it. Bedrooms are excellent although different sizes and the master is huge... I suggest a sweep for the rooms but share some of the storage space. Free free range eggs on arrival which was a lovely touch. Spa shop is in the village and the farm shop has everything and meat is lovely if you make use of the BbQ which we did. This place feels isolated but it’s within striking distance of anywhere you would want to go. We had a day trip every other days with cycling and walking mixed in between. This is Wales so weather can be amazing or dreadful. We had all sorts of coats and boots so dress appropriately and you will be fine. Watch out for the 9am check out... we thought it was 11am so ended up leaving late (apologies to the owners) All in all, thank you to the owners for a wonderful family holiday.

  • "The cottage was perfect."

    It has been done so well and is truly beautiful. On a very wet week in Wales there was more than enough room for 6 adults and three children to play, relax and spend quality time together. The view from the property was stunning and we all had such a good week. We are hoping to rebook really soon and the owners were fab and very helpful.

    3 other cottages in the same area one directly connected to the barn. Was a little worried about disturbing the neighbours if we was loud at night. Some rooms on the small side. Could have supplied some “home comforts“ like tea coffee sugar. Overall a lovely place

  • "We had a lovely time staying at The Barn."

    The property is beautiful and the attention to detail outstanding! Very clean and tidy hot tub and en-suites in every room which was a bonus! The location is quite remote, which suited us as we wanted a quiet week, there is a small town about half an hours walk away; but there isn’t much there just a pub and a Spar. Although there is bigger towns and plenty to do if you are happy to drive which we were, the roads are extremely narrow so I’m not sure I’d fancy visiting at busy periods; that said I still would! Would thoroughly recommend!

    The accommodation is well equipped with plenty of crockery and kitchen utensils but could do with some larger saucepans for a big group booking. Not everything is listed on the website eg bbq which necessitated a couple of phone calls to the owner to check. She was really helpful and also allowed us an earlier check in so we could arrange for a food delivery before the children’s bedtime. The stated 6pm check -in is quite late on arrival day and in effect reduces your holiday let by half a day..

    The house was incredibly clean and had everything you’d need for an enjoyable and comfortable holiday. The hot tub was piping hot on arrival and had fantastic views. The area is very quiet and secluded yet not too far from local amenities. I couldn’t recommend this holiday home any more! We will definitely be returning. The only negatives was the very small tv in the living room. Defiantly not big enough for the size of the room. We took our own 50” tv with us which worked great. The WiFi is a bit iffy if a lot of guests are using it.
