“Glyn Isa Country House fantastic”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Thank you to Elizabeth and Darren at Glyn Isa Country House in Rowen.
We had booked a last minute breakaway (Friday and Saturday) and stayed in The Captain's Room which was absolutely gorgeous and situated in the front of the property overlooking the gardens.
Everything about our stay was idyllic. The house was very tastefully decorated and we were made to feel very welcome. The breakfast was very nice and thankfully very hot (nice warmed plates) and my husband thought a poached egg to perfection.
Only regret was to leave so soon, hopefully to return for another treat.
The local at The Ty Gwyn on a Friday night (Welsh singing) was brilliant and made to feel welcome and lovely food.
Definately recommend a stay.

Room Tip: The Captain's Room is a must

We have just returned from another short break at Glyn Isa. As usual we received a very warm welcome from Elizabeth and shown to our room.This time we stayed in The Captains room which is at the front of the house overlooking the beautiful garden. The room had a magnificent four poster bed and a sofa which was great for relaxing on after a day out.Breakfast was freshly made to order and a perfect start for the day ahead. Please stay at this Country House, you will never be disappointed.

Room Tip: The Captains room is at the front of the house and is beautifully furnished.

We enjoyed a three nights break at this lovely place, and we enjoyed every moment of our stay.
One morning Elizabeth kindly arranged for us to have breakfast earlier on the day, as we had made previous arrangements to travel on "The Welsh Highland Railway", and that was a great help, because of the timing and the mileage involved that day.
The house is very nice indeed, and is in a good location. Our accommodation was very clean and comfortable, and a lot of thought had gone into the decor generally. Our breakfasts were enjoyable, and kept us going until a meal later on in the day. Elizabeth is a charming hostess, but unfortunately we did not get to meet her husband Darren. And Riley who is the family dog is delightful.(Hopefully we will have a return visit sometime).

Wonderful couple,(Elizabeth and Darren) very welcoming, seems like nothing is to much trouble for them .Darren even made up a log fire in the sitting room on the two nights we stayed. The house is beautiful . Riley can come home with us any time,.We will be booking again. Thank you for a nice weekend.

Room Tip: we stayed in the captains room but I would think any of the rooms would be nice

I have tried so very hard to even think of one tiny thing that was wrong at Glyn Isa but have admitted defeat! Elizabeth-you treated us to a wonderful escape from the real world before and after our wedding and we both loved every minute of the time we had there. Your home is beautiful, you were charming, the breakfast was awesome, and the only bad thing we can say is that we had to leave. We will return without a shadow of a doubt.

Room Tip: The four poster bed was a joy!

We have probably stayed at Glyn Isa about 9 or 10 times over the last couple of years. It is everything we want for a relaxing weekend . Liz and Darren always give us a warm welcome into their beautiful home which is always clean from top to bottom and yes we have stayed in all the rooms.
I would continue to recommend Glyn Isa to anyone looking for a tranquil break in a beautiful location.
big thanks to Liz and Darren

We had 2 nights in Rowen (wasn't enough). The house Is old and beautiful, giving the feeling you go back in time...The hosts are very nice, helpful with plans for the day , umbrella for the rain and very nice breakfast. The garden is lovely and all the scenery is beautiful.
