For a peaceful holiday in idyllic countryside this beautifully converted stone barn ticks all the boxes. Surrounded by 600 acres of farmland, the property sits in the heart of the Berwyn Mountains over looking the River Ceiriog. Semi-detached, alongside Ysgubor y Berwyn (BOW152), the two properties can be booked together, to accommodate two families, friends or larger parties.

Ystably y Berwyn is thoughtfully decorated and retains many of the buildings original features such as oak beams and double height ceilings. The barn is comfortable and spacious with generous sized bedrooms and a cosy lounge with wood burner. The kitchen opens out through patio doors to a private terrace and is well equipped for preparing meals while socialising with family and friends. On the terrace you can enjoy a relaxing dip in the hot tub while taking in views over the valley. There are many scenic walks and mountain bike routes from the door and wildlife is everywhere, Lloyd George once described the area as 'a little bit of heaven on Earth'. 

The Berwyn Mountains are beautiful, unspoilt and in a relatively unknown area situated in the north-east region of Wales with many walking opportunities.

Beautiful property in a beautiful place. Just make sure to book the pubs for food, or take food, shops are quite far away. One of the best places we've stayed, loved it here

Mrs F,

We had a fab weekend and the hosts were so accommodating and helpful. The lodge is in a beautiful setting and is great value for money.

Ms P,

Absolutely loved this property and can’t wait to go back again ! The barn itself is just stunning with amazing views so peaceful the owners make sure all your needs are met from fluffy towels to all your kitchen gadgets. The barn was spotlessly clean with lovely comfy beds along with a lovely hamper and care packages in every bathroom can’t fault anything loved everything about this place.

mrs C,

If you wish to enjoy a lovely family/friends time, away from outside world than this is the perfect spot. This property is located in remote area but if you are Nature lover than look no further. The owners of this property are so welcoming and jolly nature. If you need anything, they are just a call away. About the property inside its lovely, mix of old design with modern touch. It has got everything you need for perfect family / friends holiday.

Mr P,

Lovely property in a beautiful location. Really well equipped and the hosts were fantastic.

Mr D,

Lovely quiet little farm right on a stream. Great walks around the farm itself and the accommodation was perfect. The family are lovely and very helpful. Lovely gift basket with Welsh goodies upon arrival. We will be back.

mrs G,

Lovely well-equipped property in a beautiful rural location. The hot tub is amazing, and sitting in it looking out over the views really made our holiday.

Mrs H,

A wonderful stay in a beautiful location. Amazing to lie back in the hot tub and see the mountains and gardens. The owners are lovely and we enjoyed life on the farm and had the opportunity to watch the sheep shearing. The accommodation was brilliant - the best equipped place we have ever stayed in. Highly recommended.

Mrs N,

Lovely location with lovely welcoming owners. Hot tub was immaculate and very relaxing. The only problem is the wifi didn’t work.

Mr R,

We have stayed here 6 or 7 times, and the only way I could describe it is ‘our happy place’. An hour and half drive from home but a world away, brilliant place to stay.

Mr M,

Excellent property, very clean and well equipped. Would definitely recommend a stay. Owner very helpful and friendly. Hot tub was superb. Cottage located in one of the most beautiful places in the country.

Mr E,

We came with our one year old son for a much needed relaxing break, and the Berwyn barns (and the entire area) was an absolute dream. The property was gorgeous, clean, and well equipped, and the owners were so helpful and a joy to speak to. Our son loved watching daily farm life take place around us, and we took some beautiful walks right on our doorstep. Not to mention relaxing in the hot tub overlooking the hills with a bubbling stream below. Highly recommend!

Mrs P,

I would highly recommend this property. It is of a VERY HIGH standard. !! can't believe its a 4 STAR !! I honestly would have given it a 5 STAR and I'm very well travelled. This beautiful converted barn is so cosy. I loved the wood fire. The hot tub so lovely to lie in with snow falling on myself and my children. The underfloor heating in the barn made the stay so comfortable. Liz and her family are super lovely. If you're looking for a high standard accommodation with the old fashioned values and peace and beauty then this is for you! Trust Me you'll love it!!!

Miss C,
