“We would go back tomorrow!”
Reviewed 11 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011

My friends and i along with 4 young children hired both apartmetns for the week of New Year 2011.
Firstly the surroundings are beautiful and its extremely easy to find. Phill and Sarah are absolutely lovely and welcoming. Even though they live on the land they did not ever bother us or moan, but if we needed anything Phill was there in a flash.
The apartments / barn are completed to and extremely high standard with under floor heating and lovely finishes. Even little things like the smell of the bedding made it more special everything is well cared for.
There is lots to do near by and the river walks outside the barns are gorgeous. We went to visit the Waterfalls and local towns whilst there which was great.
We would highly reccomend The Dolphin Inn for dinner (located in the next town) the food was amazing and the family that own / run the pub were extremely welcoming.
We would return to le-gro barns tomorrow and had a wonderful holiday - thanks Phill ansd Sarah. Sian Murphy and crew :)

“An Awesome Weekend”
Reviewed 17 November 2011 for a stay in October 2011

A few friends and I wanted to stay in the country and we came across Le-gro barns. The best money I have ever spent an awesome weekend away, in a lovely cottage with lovely owners(Phil and Tracy). This was amazing than we could have imagined and thanks to the good weather we were blessed. The owners were exceptionally kind and helped us in what ever we need. We have memories that we will never forget and will plan our next trip soon. Buster the owners dog is cute and adorable and we all miss him truly. Le Gro Barn rock on!!!

“Le-Gro Barns set a new standard in self-catering”
Reviewed 11 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

Holidaying in the UK has never been a real consideration until now.
I was made to feel utterly welcome and the scenic surroundings created a very relaxing atmosphere.
I am happy to consider Le-Gro Barns 'my home from home.'
In the 2 days stay we were fishing, canoeing as well as playing golf without ever travelling more then 10 minutes.
I will definitely be back and thank the Barre family for a great weekend away.

“Lovely cottage in a peacful location.”
Reviewed 8 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We rented the cottage for the weekend as a getaway in Wales. The owner of the cottage Phil was very friendly and gave us tips on what to do and see in the area. He also thought us to do some fly fishing in the river running next to the cottage which was an added bonus. Went to see Chirk Castle, Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall and Pontcysyllte Aqueduct which were close to the cottage. Would recommend this place and also go back for sure. Thanks Phil for making our stay there comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

“Go Go Le Gro !”
Reviewed 4 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

A group of ten of us have just returned from a weekend away at Le Gro Barns.

We had a fantastic time there with great hosts in Phil and Tracey (The owners).

Phil was responsible largely for building the two guest houses as well as many of the features inside including wardrobes, the main stairs etc. This really adds to the authenticity of the cottages knowing that the owners had such a fundamental part to play.

The buildings themselves are impressive and have been constructed to a very high specification. As you can see from the pictures on the main tripadvisor page, no expense has been spared, this really is a 5 star place in terms of fittings and fixtures with under floor heating, individual room thermostat control, triple glazing to name but a few. Apart from all these mod cons, there are also nice touches with the traditional wood fire, bbq outside usage, exposed brick walls etc. For those that need their fix of Facebook and internet there is also free wifi in both buildings.

The surrounding area around the guesthouses is beautiful with some gorgeous scenery as well as a brook nearby. Please check out the photos on the Le Gro Barns website.

Activities

There’s an excellent range of activities available within 30 mins drive from clay pigeon shooting, to walks, to golf and pony trekking. Our group concentrated more on the golf and we had a good time at the range.

Overall, we had a fantastic time and this was due not only to the gorgeous surroundings and numerous activities on offer, but also the superb hospitality from Phil and Tracey. Thanks for a great time and happy memories guys! We would thoroughly recommend Le Gro Barns to anyone!
