Set in idyllic countryside, this converted stone barn offers a wonderful setting to explore a very special area. Semi-detached, alongside Ystabl y Berwyn (BOW151), the two properties can be booked together, to accommodate two families, friends or larger parties.

With a hot tub and spacious interior you can truly relax in comfort and style. The property has been thoughtfully decorated and retains many original features. The large kitchen provides ample space for friends and family to prepare meals and dine together and in warmer weather this space extends onto the patio through the large kitchen patio doors.

In cooler months the large wood burner sets the scene for an evening's board game, film or some good conversation with your nearest and dearest. Alternatively, you can step out into the hot tub for a warming dip under the stars.

Surrounded by 600 acres of farmland the property sits in the heart of the Berwyn Mountains. There are many scenic walks and mountain biking routes from the door to explore, and wildlife is everywhere, making it an ideal bird watching location. The Berwyn Mountains range is a beautiful, unspoilt area of upland situated in the north-east region of Wales. The isolation this area has to offer is unforgettable with its many walking opportunities and its low number of visitors despite being so near Snowdonia National Park. In short - an amazingly well-kept secret.

The picturesque local village of Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog has two inns, The Hand and The West Arms and they both serve good food. Other activities and attractions in the area include, Pistyll Rhaeadr, the highest waterfall in Wales (9 miles away), Llangollen (15 miles) and Bala (27 miles).

The property is far better than the pictures on the website. The ceilings in the bedrooms are very high so nice and airy. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. Please remember that is self-catering accommodation in a remote location so please ensure you take everything you need for your stay. There are shops just outside the village to stock up. Also, some of the main supermarkets deliver to the property. Also, there are two nice pubs in the Village with an extensive menu. The village is a 2 mile along a very quiet road. You have fantastic views from the back of the cottage where your hot tub is situated. Added bonus of a stream and small waterfall also which is very relaxing. I cannot express how much my friends and I enjoyed our stay. The cottage was lovely and clean. The owner was extremely helpful and very nice. I would highly recommend a visit if you want peace and quiet.

Mrs B,

We have been coming to Berwyn Barns for a number of years now. It is one of our ‘happy places’, our year would be much poorer if we didn’t have a little retreat to this wonderful place. Can’t wait for our next visit. John and Chris.

Mr M,

This cottage is absolutely beautiful. The views around are amazing and the surrounding area is lovely to go for a walk. The lady whose cottage it is was so helpful. We were able to see the cows with their calves which was great for kids. The stream right by us was lovely to watch. The hot tub was great. They have literally thought of everything. Thank you so much for such a relaxing break. Will definitely be back.

Mrs U,

Just had our 5th yearly visit and enjoying it so much we are thinking of going to every 6 months.

Mrs J,

We absolutely loved our stay and the host was very welcoming and helped make our stay comfortable. It's a cosy place to stay and the rooms were lovely. We still made good use of the hot tub despite the cold November weather. It was a great base to explore Snowdonia from and we would book again if coming back to this area.

Mrs F,

This was our 5th annual visit to the property. Liz and her family are always welcoming and we will be back again next year.

Mrs J,

Fantastic home with everything you need. Lovely furnishing and rooms .hot tub a bonus. Child friendly outdoor space. Owners where helpful and friendly.

Mrs L,

Beautiful views, lovely clean accomodation that is well cared for. Bit of a distance to get anywhere but worth it.

Mrs S,

Beautiful location, excellent and well presented cottage, brilliant spot if you want to get away from it all! Owners were friendly and couldn’t do enough to help and support with any queries or questions we had, thoroughly enjoyed and look forward to another visit!

Mr T,

Stunning location. Sitting in the hot tub listening to the nearby stream and sheep was delightful
