    "Christmas Break"

    We stayed for just four days over Christmas as we were visiting our daughter who lives nearby. We were met by Anne on our arrival and she showed us around and told us about the facilities and the area. The barn was very nicely decorated and very clean and tidy. She had left some bacon, sausages and eggs for breakfast and a little Christmas Cake for afters. The barn is right in the middle of the country and is quite isolated apart from the owners cottage which is close by. There is a wonderful feeling of being away from it all and it is a wonderfully relaxing place to stay. There is plenty of wildife and farm animals to watch and you have a brilliant view of the hills from the picture windows. Be prepared to negotiate the narrow lane and open the two metal gates as you come and go. It is well worth it!

    "Owl Barn Retreat - A Barn Conversion with a Fantastic View"

    I decided to treat my mum and 2 teenage daughters to a trip to Wales and came across Owl Barn Retreat on Best of Wales website.

    It was a last minute booking (3 days before arrival) and soon after making the online booking, I received a phone call from the owner, Anne, who wanted to say "Hello" and make sure I was happy with the booking.

    On arrival, we were greeted by ann who was very welcoming and showed us round the beautiful barn conversion. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, cosy and very well-equipped. Ann had also gone to the trouble of getting a complimentary welcome pack of milk, eggs, bread, butter, bacon, sausages and welsh fruit loaf all sourced from local suppliers and shops. The sausages in particular were very tasty and we ate the lot for breakfast next morning.

    Unfortunately, the weather was not great, but we decided to visit Chirk Castle, Llangollen and the close-by waterfall. The accommodaton is very well located for many of Wales' most beautiful locations and scenery, but is situated in a very peaceful spot, ideal for bird-watching, reading, walking, or just taking in the peace and quiet, and fresh air.

    There were plenty of books, current magazines and board games to keep us busy lazing away the time.

    The next day was rainy, but it was our last day and had to pack. Although it was a very short break, I plan to visit again as we did not make Vyrnwy Lake which I believe is superb for walking and bird-watching.

    On leaving, Ann came round to wave us off. Before setting off for the journey home, we walked around the paddock and lovely garden. The grounds are beautiful and ideal for a family with small children to run around.

    I would highly recommend a stay at the Owl Barn Retreat - it is suitable place to stay for families and for couples with plenty to do.
