Customer Reviews

We had a great week at this property which is set is beautiful surroundings and a very peaceful location. With great walking on the doorstep, huge sandy beaches with sand dunes nearby and the fabulous bike trails in the Forest at Coed Y Brenin, we found a week just wasn't long enough to do everything we wanted to. The barn was really comfortable with everything we needed and the homemade lemon drizzle and bottle of wine on arrival was very welcome after a long journey. This was a great find and we'd definitely recommend it!

Well what can I say a fabulous, well situated barn. Yes as in other review the adjoining properties do prevent you from opening your curtains, but to be honest the best views are to the front of the property anyway. This did not spoil our stay at all. We have enjoyed having the views from the living area and the easy access to the surrounding areas. We brought our dog Poppy, who tried to make friends with Nell (the farm dog.) eventually by the end of the week they became good friends. I would say if you are going to look for fault your going to find them. Yes there are small things, but nothing that either spoils the holiday or hinders the beautiful experience or scenery of the cottage.
