“Lovely week in beautiful Countryside”
Reviewed May 19, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Just returned from a fabulous week at Boffins Barn. Martin was a perfect host with nothing being too much trouble.

The house itself is in an idyllic location with great views down the valley and only the sound of the birds breaking the silence.

The cottage is well provisioned and mattresses, bedding & towels all 5 star quality.

Great walks from the doorstep and even managed to “borrow” Paddy the dog for a bit of company on my journeys.

Denbigh, Mold, Rhuddlan & Ruthin all handy and well worth exploring. We will be back.

“Perfect Family Getaway!”
Reviewed October 10, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

We visited Boffins Barn from 30th September - 7 October 2017 as a group of 6 adults and can not fault this place one bit!

We were greeted by the lovely Martin who was very welcoming and helpful, he had also sent us an email previously to help us with directions on getting there. He also popped by with fresh eggs from the chickens which was a nice touch!

The barn itself is absolutely beautiful well decorated modern and well maintained!
It is in a perfect location close to the local town of Mold for all the supermarkets you would need and only a half an hour car ride from place like Chester and Llandudno.

We will definitely be returning again next year.

“Beautiful Cottage & Warm Welcome”
Reviewed October 1, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had a lovely week at Boffins Barn where we received a very warm welcome form owner Martin, Paddy the Dog and the hens - who provided fresh eggs for breakfast. Boffins is set in peaceful, scenic countryside but only about 15 minutes drive from the A55 and the routes to Chester & Wales. Great local pub in the village (The Cross Foxes) providing home cooked meals and an Indian restaurant (The Lounge) where we enjoyed 2 lovely meals. Will definitely return for a future visit.

“Lovely modern converted barn in a rural location, yet close to the all the sites”
Reviewed September 20, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We came over from Sweden, 4 adults, 2 children and 2 babies and absolutely loved this place. It's very modern, clean and nice inside with everything you would need for a relaxing holiday, also the outside was perfect with a nice garden, lovely view and great outdoor furniture and a BBQ, we enjoyed a few breakfasts and dinners eating outside.

The location was perfect we thought, very quiet and rural but close to the seaside and other sites.

Martin was very helpful and made sure we had a good stay.

We will definitely consider coming back when we visit North Wales again.

We have just returned from this place with our two (under ten) children. We loved this place. It was comfortable, Elaine and Martin were incredibly hospitable, the chickens (no rooster in the morning) were generous in their presenting of eggs for the week, and the views are stunning. There was a bottle of wine in the fridge (always a nice touch) and when our son's birthday came around, he was given a little fox named Boffin as a treat from Elaine. The stairs don't creak, the upstairs is relatively quiet even with kids up there and when everyone is asleep there is not a sound to be heard. The internet is intermittent, which was a huge blessing as it gave us ample opportunity to unplug and unwind with a book by the fire. Thank you so much for a wonderful time. We aim to be back, in fact that is our only reason for not wanting to give such an awesome review, we want to be able to go whenever we want!

We can not praise Boffins Barn enough, had a fantastic three night break, felt relaxed and chilled from the moment we arrived...all our needs catered for by attentive owners, views stunning, lots of lovely walks on the doorstep....5 * plus a truly amazing property, a place not to be missed.
