This is a cottage to impress - from the blissfully quiet, rural location to the unique features and high quality finish, the games room, woodburners and breathtaking views. Newly renovated from a traditional Welsh barn, this stylish hideaway is perfect for your group get-together and can host everyone together in a large living / dining area. You also have the option of dividing the cottage into two self contained units (Beudy Tanllan and Ysgubor Tanllan). Set in an enclosed gated area, with its own patio area, it offers a stunning and generous landscape to explore in the immediate surroundings.

To Summarise - a word from the owners...
The local area has so much to offer and you can have some amazing day trips, but we really love life in our little patch of Mid Wales and feel that you can have the most memorable adventures right here where the pace of life slows down and you feel at one with nature. Climb a hill, watch the sunrise or sunset, build a den, dam a brook, listen to the birds singing, play pooh stick on the little bridge down the lane, read a book in the open air, fill a sketchbook with drawings and paintings, the list goes on.

Just fantastic all round. What a beautiful place, the owners were great. Everything about the accommodation was first class and the beds were so comfortable. Would recommend this lovely rural area to anyone that enjoys peace and quiet but can also explore surrounding area. The owners should be so proud. Easy to make contact with customer service and no issues at all. As already highlighted, accommodation was 5 star.Elaine from Deeside - 3rd January 2019
This is a stunning property. Everything about it was well considered. It was very comfortable and thoughtfully equipped. We were a family of 9 adults who love to cook and all we needed was plenty of space to spread out. We all really loved it.Jane from Cambridge - 10th December 2018
Absolutely gorgeous property! The pictures don't do it justice. Beautiful location and setting, the lack of signal and Wi-Fi is a refreshing change to truly enjoy a weekend away.Heather from Wrexham - 13th November 2018

This place is out of this world!!! Loved the cottage, owners thought of every detail. Location was amazing. Would love to return.Mrs Monika Filip - 9th May 2018

Enjoy the truly breath-taking views, watch red kites from your window, or explore Glyndwr’s Way just half a mile from the barn.
