  • “Litttle Pentre Barn is the epitome ...”
    Litttle Pentre Barn is the epitome of a modern conversion of a rustic barn. Open plan with a grand central room with lounge and dining areas and appropriate furnishings; bedroom (with curtain separator from common area, but no wall and door); kitchen and bathroom on ground level and another bedroom in loft. Full height window wall in grand room with view to fields. Wood burning stove for heat and nice decorative touches. Kitchen pretty good with very nice new, free-standing stove. ...

Special thanks to the Sykes Cottages' relocation crew in finding us this place to replace original booking where the internet was not working at all and apparently had been out for many weeks without disclosing that in the listing information - unfortunately, we were not able to do without internet on this trip. Thus, Sykes Cottages demonstrated that it serves its customers well not just in the booking process, but also to resolve issues once the period starts. On short notice, we were relocated quickly to nearby Little Pentre Barn and the owner was accommodating. There were intermittent internet problems there, too, but that is to be expected in rural areas. Interesting town and area with easy drive to Wrexham. I am a hard grader such that my rating of a 9 probably is the equivalent of many others' 10.

About the location

OVERTON-ON-DEE

Ellesmere 5 miles; Llangollen 12 miles.

The village of Overton-on-Dee stands amidst delightful countryside close to the English border, offering a perfect base from which to explore North Wales, Cheshire and Shropshire. Situated on an escarpment around which the River Dee winds its course, this charming village boasts a fine collection of 18th century buildings, a small selection of local shops, a great restaurant and a traditional pub. The nine Meres of Ellesmere are also nearby, created during the glacial period and now providing scenic walks, boat trips, sailing, fishing and bird watching opportunities to the many visitors that travel from near and far. Ellesmere also has a broad variety of attractive buildings including St Mary's Church, which dates back to the Norman Conquest, whilst offering a fine selection of shops and no less than nine pubs in addition to an annual beer festival, making this an ideal holiday location all year round.
