I stayed in this beautiful house for 3 nights with 10 of my friends! The house was perfect for what we wanted. It is a perfect size, the rooms were very nice, and the overall experience was very good. The pottery place was very fun and cheap too! I would highly recommend this to anyone from families to a group of friends. Very very good weekend!

“Brilliant place for a family holiday in Snowdonia”
Reviewed 24 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

A very well appointed barn conversion, ideal for our extended family of 9 giving both space and comfort with a great separation of eating from relaxing and sleeping; stars were master bedroom and lounge. The bonuses were a pottery for the kids (and adults!) to test their skills and a walk to a lovely river across fields. The owner was friendly and very helpful immediately sorting out any little problems. Ideal location for easy access to mountains, beaches, castles and railways. Excellent value for money

“Curates egg - good in parts but bad on others”
Reviewed 1 April 2013 for a stay in October 2012

person found this review helpful

We stayed here last October 2012 with 3 other couples . The Barn is well equipped , spacious and with some good quality furniture but it was not clean throughout and did not appear to have been maintained well . Cheap/worn bed linen with particle foam pillows, throw overs on the settees , some dirty equipment, and other shortcomings added to our view that the rating as “excellent” is inaccurate. The mountain views to the front as stated in the brochure do exist but only from the upstairs bedrooms. We felt sufficiently disenchanted that we cancelled a second booking that we had already made for a family reunion at Easter 2013 . It took several months and the issue of court proceedings to get a full refund of the deposit . We and our friends travel a lot and our overriding concern is that of cleanliness combined with a 4 or 5 star quality standard. This is advertised as a 4 * property with the appropriate 4* price but it is not in our view 4 * value.

“Amazing house which made a great family holiday”
Reviewed 5 January 2013 for a stay in November 2012

We visited for a family weekend away where we celebrated my 30th birthday. We rented Ddol Helyg farm house also as we had a large party of 20 people ranging from age 6 to 83! We also took our dogs which the house was great for, with wooden heated floors throughout!

This accommodation was modern and had all the facilities and everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, bowls, cups serving dishes and abled us to cook a roast dinner for all of the party. The lounge was very spacious and great that everyone could get a seat while relaxing round the wood burner and playing games with the children. The house catered for everything and having a ground floor double bedroom with en-suite was great for a relative who had a broken ankle and couldn't make the stairs!
Overall this is an amazing modern house in a great location and I would definitely not hesitate to recommend it to families. The owner Barbara was very friendly and allowed us to stay in piggery pottery after closing where all the family(adults included) painted pots and other pottery!
I hope we can visit again sometime.
Please see my review on the Ddol Helyg Farm House if you have a large party.

“Paint a Pot”
Reviewed 15 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012
1
person found this review helpful

We've just returned from a weeks stay at Ddol Helyg and it was a great week.

The property is great for large groups and large families, it is based in Llanrug which we found ideal for days out to Anglesey, Caernarfon, Llanberis, Portmerion and Llandudno. There is only really one pub within walking distance and we were not too impressed with the quality or price of the food, but there are loads of good places around such as the Newborough Inn which was only 6 minutes drive away and was amazing.

The house itself is great, the kitchen is ideal for large groups, there is a dishwasher and utility room for washing etc... One of the bedrooms, the largest with the jacuzzi bath and shower is over the kitchen and heating, as a result it gets really really warm and is slightly cut off from the rest of the house, but people with babies might quite like this.

The rest of the rooms are next to or over the living room, we did find the main bedroom, and the bunk room and twin room (over the bunk room/next to the main room) were really warm - they seemed to have the underfloor heating and were slightly stifling - you can't change this yourself but ask Barbara and she will try to help. The remaining two rooms were colder but we liked this.

There is limited wi-fi reception and TV - but you are in Wales on holiday so do you really need this. I actually enjoyed not having access to facebook and emails.

My only criticism apart from the heating which can be resolved was the bathrooms were grubby, we had to clean the showers and bath before we'd use them.

Whilst it is pet friendly there are limitations, there are horses so the dogs have to be on their leads, the back garden is small - fine for one small dog but that is it, there was also a lot of bird feathers which had to be cleaned constantly - really it could have been cleaned up to be better, also the dog is not allowed to be left in the house alone or on the furniture.

The highlight is the pottery which Barbara owns, she is really helpful and is happy for you to go in at night when it is closed and take a bottle of wine and paint a pot - its about £9-11 including the £1 charge to paint it there - but its worth it. I painted two piggy money banks and it was great fun for everyone. We will definately be going back again
