  • "The Corn Store is an excellent holiday cottage in every way."

    Spotlessly clean, very comfortable and spacious. It is set in a very peaceful location ideal for walking and exploring the local area. If I had to pick a fault just be aware that the wifi and internet are not the best at all. This did,nt really bother us bur if you are planning to do some work from home it could be a struggle. Other than that I can,t recommend the Corn Store highly enough. We are already planning our next visit!

  • "The property is beautiful and peaceful."

    I believe the mattresses are being changed, which I wish had happened a week sooner as the beds were really quite uncomfortable. But with new mattresses it would be much much better. The cooker and appliances could also do with updating, particularly the cooker/oven. For 7 people who we booked for, we had to bring in an extra chair from outside but this was ok. We also bought a non- slip mat for the bath as it was hazardous, so adding that would be useful for future guests (and an additional drying bath mat for the ensuite, we had to use a towel on the wooden floor). Despite these criticisms/recommendations for improvements, the property was lovely, good value (excellent price for the full week) and I really would recommend it as a beautiful place to stay.

  • "The cottage was lovely, clean and welcoming."

    Unfortunately there was a problem with the shower in the en-suite but we called the agent and they came round very quickly with the maintenance person. The plumber came later that day but couldn't fix it. We were offered another house to stay in but decided to stay in the Corn Store and use the other house for the shower. It wasn't ideal but they couldn't have been more helpful. The only other things I would have liked is a measuring jug & smaller pot to use in the microwave. I agree with previous reviews about the lack of light near the cooker so we took a portable light which was useful. All in all it was a lovely property and we would stay again.

    The immediate area is very quiet and peacefull. A 15 minute slow walk will get you to the local pub/restaurant. Another couple of minutes will bring you to the river Dee. We loved our stay and we will be coming back.

  • "We really liked the cottage."

    The management was highly cooperating. It is a very nice place. They even arranged 2 fans on special request as during our stay it was hottest day in uk. There are few improvements needed. Firstly spider webs in all the roof corners as my child felt scared because of that. Secondly they need to put some extra light at or near the stove top since we had to use our phone torch to see the color of the food as it is very dim. Thirdly there is no hot water in ensuite shower. Rest of the things were amazing.

  • "Alison could not have been more welcoming or helpful."

    The en suite shower needs replacing; this seems to be a long-standing and unresolved problem. We all ended up having to use the family bathroom. Possibly a personal issue but the lights in the Kitchen/Lounge need replacing with more powerful bulbs (suggest LEDs).

  • "Lovely cottage, set in beautiful countryside."

    All amenities available, easy parking. Was a little chilly in the evening but soon sorted when we got the log fire going. Worth bringing extra kindling and fuel for the fire. Only downside, and not the cottage fault,was that there is no where for dogs to be let off securely for a good runaround as farm land all around with plenty of sheep . There is a nice secure decking area they can go out on but ours like to be off lead but couldnt find anywhere suitable, so a flexi lead is useful.

The shower in the master bedroom is great only if you wish a cold shower. I have mentioned this to the cleaning lady. Having said that we will be booking again without a doubt.

  • "A beautiful cottage in amazing scenery, extremely comfortable for 4 adults and a large dog."

    ....However, due to the surrounding farmland it is difficult to find safe walking places for dogs. The outdoor decked area is very secure but not the place to let your dog toilet if desperate and your not dressed yet !! Getting up close and personal with the cows and sheep maybe too much for some dogs !!

Will consider returning in the future with more of the family when the current situation changes.

  • "Stayed for a week in August, we were apprehensive as the previous guests reviews were not so good."

    Well all I can say is what a bunch of petty snobs this cottage is lovely. It has huge character and is everything you should expect for an old building. Yes it hasn't got any mod cons but if you want that then best get a flash apartment in st ives. As for the cleanliness then a few cobwebs in the windows is the only issue. The en suite is small but serves it's purpose, the bedrooms are cosy, living area and kitchen cosy and basic. Now it's not all a plus so here's a few negatives ..the frying pan is to small, the main bed is a hard, the oven takes about an hour to heat up( it gets there in the end) oh and if you don't like the countryside it's not for you the cows outside your window in the morning have some right conversations. Pub is 5 mins walk down the lane. It's not operating at it's best due to the pandemic and takes around 20 mins to get a drink but it's a nice place with friendly staff. Corwen town waste of time, smashing Chinese though we left a menu. So overall it was fine for our family of 5, we had a great week and after all this is a charity cottage so your doing your bit...

    The kitchen was very tardy the storage of the pots ,pans was dusty and dirty. The dryer and washing machine had been left dirty and the dryer un emptied I have sent photos taken to show these issues, master bedroom on suit and downstairs loo both have a damp smell. Customers should be advised that the Sky box only has basic channels only. A disappointing property

    The kitchen is pretty well kitted out, the oven isn't very large but sufficient and the hobs were slow! Any practical questions we had during our stay were dealt with promptly and well by the people that look after the property locally. We'd go again! Carrog is a great little village set on the River Dee, very pleasant to stroll along the river.

    I honestly think the cottage needs a bit more attention- the sofas were itchy and we were quite allergic to the dust and animal hairs; as mentioned by previous residents, when we turned the tap on there was a very loud noise, which was quite disturbing; in the small room, on the bed, the throw smelled of fish and the bed itself was quite thin; the toilet, belonging to the master bedroom, leaked as soon as you flush the toilet; in the main toilet, the first time we took a shower, the water leaked down below, near the bookshelf. On an overall level, the house was pleasantly decent.

  • "The ensuite bathroom is too small."

    Too compact. Can't swing a cat in it. It was a struggle to have a shower as the cubicle was way too small for an adult. It would be best to get rid of the bath in the main bathroom and put in a large en suite shower. The boiler tank made a loud noise when turning on tap in kitchen. Sounded like an electric drill. Think there is air in the tank or something. Apart from above we had a lovely holiday and the cottage is so comfy and cosy. I would recommend staying here. The views are to die for

  • "The cottage was in a lovely situation and very comfortable BUT there were several things not to our satisfaction."

    The small shower unit in the main bedroom was a bit archaic with the water ranging from hot to cold without much notice. The grouting is in a bad state of repair and needs renewing urgently. A number of the taps in the cottage could do with a dose of WD40 to free them up. Likewise a number of the controls on the radiators are very stiff and some will not move. The directions to the cottage are a bit misleading and could do with a re-write. There was confusion when we tried to contact the person on the confirmation booking form regarding collection of the keys. There was no reply and we had to contact Sykes HQ for information. It was then we were informed "Oh there is a box on the wall where you need to put in a code number to access the keys" How were we to know this The instructions for the television were very confusing and we had to ask the lady who helps to maintain the cottage for help on several occasions. Even then we could not delete the subtitles. A shelf in the fridge kept falling down and we ruined a jar of marmalade because of this as it crashed to the floor. It seemed that one of the bits of plastic that kept it in the fridge door had previously been damaged prior to our visit. Despite these problems we enjoyed our stay and the lady who helped with the tv was most helpful.

The property

The Corn Store is a stone-built barn conversion set alongside two other properties.

The kitchen is spacious with many features including a Butler sink and a dining table for six people.

The comfortable sitting room has French doors leading to a decked area with views over the fields.

An oak staircase leads up to the first floor with two double bedrooms (one with an en-suite) and a single bedroom, whilst outside is a patio area where you can relax with a refreshing drink as you watch the sun go down.

A lovely family holiday home for a relaxing break away.

Carrog Mill Cottages

These three holiday homes are situated in a peaceful location on the edge of the North Wales village of Carrog, in between the popular towns of Corwen and Llangollen. The properties are made up of a detached farmhouse and two barn conversions, which individually or together, can offer families and groups of friends an excellent base for discovering this wonderful part of the country. The cottages are situated down a private lane but are just a few minutes’ walk from the village of Carrog which is home to a friendly pub serving good food where you can sit and dine whilst overlooking the River Dee and the beautiful rolling hills across the valley. The village is also home to a station on the Llangollen Heritage Steam Railway line, so why not step back in time and pop on a steam train to Llangollen, home to a white-water rafting centre, an annual Eisteddfod and the World Heritage Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. Alternatively, head to Corwen, a lovely market town with a good selection of shops and pubs. Drive past Corwen to the Rhug Estate and its fabulous organic farm shop and restaurant, or head deeper into Wales to discover Bala Lake, Betws-y-Coed and the whole of the Snowdonia National Park. These comfortable cottages will provide a holiday that will live long in the memory.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
