  • "We enjoyed our stay, the property met and exceeded our expectations."

    A strong positive for us was the EV charger. We would have liked a drier to put washing on that could not go into the tumble drier, but that is a small point. Overall this is definitely a five star property

  • "The cottage was fabulous absolutely top notch and beautifully kept perfect for our stay which was for a wedding at Iscoyd Park."

    Showers were wonderful and the bed very comfortable. Nothing to improve at all. Our host Anne-Marie was lovely and on hand for any queries we had. Only wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you Anne-Marie for a wonderful stay

  • "We had a lovely stay at 1 Barn Cottages despite having to leave early due to a death in the family."

    It is well set up for even the smallest of dogs and that was a huge relief to us - our dogs will always find the weak point in a fence or hedge and there just wasn’t one. The owner’s dogs were a worry but she kept them away and generally out of “our” paddock - except for when they came to visit the folk staying next door. The secure patio area was very helpful. We found all the furnishings and fittings to be of the highest quality and were very comfortable indeed. We loved the remote control shower! Probably the only issue for us was noise from next door - it carries very easily and stopped our dogs from settling, which in turn kept us from fully relaxing. We would go again but would hope that the adjacent property was empty - if you are booking both together then you will have a wonderful time with zero issues!

  • "Fabulous accommodation in a lovely quiet area, so relaxing with wonderful bird song, the hosts are lovely and so helpful."

    Perfect for anybody with dogs. We have been twice with our cat, and it worked out very well for him, as Anne-Marie provided a barrier, so we could have the doors open and still keep him secure without his harness on, he also enjoyed exploring the paddock with his harness on. Will definitely return and would recommend. Thank you for a lovely stay.

  • "Beautiful barn cottage with everything you need."

    Comfortable and warm. The main plus for me was the outside area, a paddock that I didn’t have to go down the road to. My dog was safe. The countryside around the property is peaceful and the birdsong superb. The local facilities great and friendly. I would definitely recommend the property, and thank you to the owner for making our stay relaxing and welcoming.

Barn Cottages At Iscoyd

Two contemporary, all-ground-floor cottages, resting amidst the beauty of the Iscoyd Estate, the Barn Cottages at Iscoyd offer a desirable base from which to explore the countryside of Wales and beyond. Resting in Iscoyd, in easy reach of all of the amenities that Whitchurch has to offer, there's no better choice for a rural retreat. The original house of the property was constructed in the mid to late 19th century, and was used as a farm and dairy before the property was extended in the 1960s when the barns were originally built. Two historic cottages offering a group of six a flexible sleeping arrangement encompassed by a sleek, stylish interior, they make the perfect choice for your discovery of North Wales. Both of the properties are very similar in style, with their open-plan living spaces making the perfect space to come together to toast to your celebratory escape, the wooburning stoves bringing a welcoming warmth in the winter months, or sit out in your own private gardens where you can dine alfresco as your canine companions make the most of the shared enclosed paddock amongst the stunning countryside surroundings. The local area is a true delight for those seeking a rural escape, with plenty of opportunities for walking and cycling in easy reach, as well as the wonder of Iscoyd Park being close by, perfect for those attending a wedding. Venture into the nearby market town of Whitchurch just under five miles away, where its beautiful buildings from Medieval, Tudor and Georgian times house a range of cafés, pubs and restaurants where you can indulge in a hearty lunch, while you can also enjoy a generous breakfast pack on request back at the cottages, with local products bringing you the very best tastes of North Wales. For those seeking outdoor adventure, The Lands End to John O’Groats cycle routes pass through Whitchurch, as well as it being a ‘Walkers are Welcome‘ town, while the Fenn's, Whixall & Bettisfield Mosses National Nature Reserve is the perfect place to wildlife watch. The town borders all of Chester, Wrexham and Shrewsbury, making the cottages a wonderful base for touring both North West England and North Wales, with each town holding its own unique atmosphere with plenty of family-friendly attractions too. Explore the beautiful Roman walls encompassing Chester or spend a day at the races, while Wrexham boasts the National Trust delight of Erddig, steeped in rich history and home to a landscape pleasure park, with Shrewsbury being of equal historic wonder with its castle, museum and Tudor centre home to wonderful shopping experiences.
