“The Barn that just kept giving!”

They say you get what you pay for, in the case of the barn, that was incorrect, as you got far more then you pay for. Location is remote. But you are 20 mins away from the Lakes and just over 30 minutes from the amazing Waterfall. You also about a beautiful hour drive from Barmouth beach. So there enough things to do around the area, to enjoy the location.

There was 10 adults that stayed at the barn, which normally means chaos, but due to the size and layout of the property, there was plenty of room for everyone to have their individual space. The bathrooms were of a very high standard as was the kitchen. The Barn was full of DVDs, books and games. Would definitely book again and Marcus was a delight to deal with, never failing to answers countless questions I had. Couldn't fault anything about the stay.

“Perfect Retreat”
Reviewed 14 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The perfect retreat for a family getaway. We were a family of 7 adults, 1 teenager and two small children (7 & 4) staying at The Old Granary and we had a wonderful time. The kids had loads of space to go wild without causing any damage and were safely secure in the garden in full view of the house. The bedrooms were spaced out to give everyone a bit of privacy and there was never a queue for one of the three fabulous bathrooms. The kitchen was perfect for all the family to enjoy every meal together and was excellently equipped - we had no inclination to eat out. The surrounding area is beautiful and peaceful, we enjoyed a lovely walk along the road then back along the river (a little long for the little ones but they managed it and had fun on the way). Decided we would definately book again.

“Fantastic getaway!”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed here with friends and our young children. We had a fantastic long weekend. The barn is amazing, very high spec with everything you could require and more.
We explored the surrounding areas,had a fantastic day at the beach in Barmouth. For those who enjoy driving the route from Welshpool to Barmouth is stunning. We had a lovely day on the steam railway in Welshpool.

It was great coming back, the kids playing in the garden and just chilling out with a few bottles of wine taking in the beautiful scenery.The barn is big enough so you're not getting in each others way. Beds are really comfy and the bathrooms are gorgeous.

Little tip: Asda deliver to the property, saves you having to bring lots of shopping bags with you.

Big thanks to Marcus who came through when we needed him.

“Beyond beautiful!”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed here in April for 3 nights with our extended family. The scenery was stunning and he house was breathtakingly beautiful. It had been restored sympathetically yet had all the modern amenities. Our absolute favourite was the baths, they were amazing! Our children enjoyed the garden and the library was very interesting to look through. I would recommend this to anyone, even people travelling with someone with mobility concerns as there were bedrooms on the ground floor. The nearest town was well equipped and beautiful, if you like vintage/antiques the market set up in the old hall is to die for and we had a wonderful time there.
