“Cannot be faulted”
Reviewed October 27, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Dee and Pete were very helpful, even as we were arriving late at night and
only asked last minuet to bring along a pet they were quick to helpful out, and even came out in the dark to see if we had settled in well! We loved the stay as it was very cosy and the owners have the right balance of being there to help, but not always checking up on you. The location, owners, cleanliness, facilities and barn were all excellent! Would definitely recommend others to stay!

“a warm friendly stay.”
Reviewed October 13, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

we loved the barn so warm and cosy, every thing we needed was there, the view from the front porch over the Dee vally can not be put in to words, just to sit outside and take in the vista very special, the ultimate destress therapy, good walkes in the forrest with the dog but very hilly, only constructive critisisem we can say is a shower in the bathroom would be better than the bath, but this will not put us off comming back many thanks to Dee and peter and family, our lovely hosts for the weekend.

Thank you for your lovely review. Sorry about the lack of shower but we are fed by natural spring water and the pressure does not always allow showers therefore we decided the bath was the best option.

“A beautiful relaxing holiday in well equipped cottage in a lovely part of Wales”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We are just back from our second stay at Tyn-y-fron Barn and have enjoyed it even more this time, if that was possible. The cottage is well equipped with everything you will need for your stay. It is a wonderful base for travelling to local interests. Snowdon is a short drive away as is the beautiful Barmouth beach. As last time we found the welcome from Dee and Peter very pleasant and appreciated that we were left in private but they were always available if needed.

It is good that this accommodation is dog friendly as our two dogs enjoyed their stay as much as we did due to the endless local walks they could go on. There are good local facilities in Bala and Corwen and even a local pub within a short walking distance. There is some great fishing on the River Dee and we even saw some otters on our visit. AND THE BEAUTIFUL VIEW IS TO DIE FOR!

We couldn't recommend this place enough and know we will return....Thank You Dee and Peter

“great location”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

on arrival 23/5/2014, i was informed by lady owner they was expecting me on the 22/5/2014,. this i was un-aware of, she then said it would be probebley alright to stop until saturday. i must add apart from the lady owner verbily showing us around the holiday let. that was the only coversation i had with her the whole holiday. on the final day of leaving, i knocked on owners door . i was greeted with barking dog, and a female telling the dog to shut up. i waited 2 mins, no reply. i must add i and my partner have been on a lot of simular holidays,and we do like our privacy . other owners have checked on us on at least one occassion that is everything is ok. the occomadation was great apart from seating , which was cane and not very comfortable, we did notice the property has been sold. there was no information pack listing doctors etc. wasnt sure how they wanted rubbish sorted,again no information. finally the lady owner always seemed busy, as i believe they had their own relatives down to stay.

I am sorry that the client did not like me mentioning that he had arrived a day late, but indeed he had as can be verified by trip advisor who booked him in. However, despite this, to be helpful we said that he could stay until the following Saturday. This would not have been possible if we had a prior booking. We did not have to do this but felt that it would be kind to do so. The property IS NOT for sale. This is our next door neighbours.
The Cottage suite is very comfortable and has had no previous complaints.
Because we live on site we make a point of leaving all our holiday makers in peace unless they ask for assistance.
Also because we live on site, yes, we did have family visit for two nights. This has absolutely nothing to do with any clients that may be in the Barn at the time and is totally irrelevent.
We are glad he enjoyed the views, in fact who could not.
By the way, lady owners name is Dee.

“Peaceful, comfortable barn - with wonderful views.”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Beautifully situated, easy to find - short journey to pubs/restaurants/walks. Perfect location. Accommodation comfortable and perfectly adequate, all the things you'd expect; good sized bathroom, large enough kitchen area and lounge area spacious enough for two, and visiting cat. Nice area to sit outside to eat breakfast and enjoy the view - and owners on hand when needed if locked out (!) Lovely comfy bed. Efficient heating (shame its needed in Aug!) Would have been useful if there was washing up liquid there and perhaps a dvd player as only BBC channels available. Otherwise fantastic and we'd love to visit again.

Thank you for your good review.
Sorry about the towels but you are the first people to comment and everyone else seems very happy with them.
Also sorry you didn't find the cleanliness of the bsthroom satisfactory.
First person to complain about that too! We think our little cottage is spotless and we know, from the visitors book that people just love it... and of course from the other reviews. Glad that you feel you could recommend a friend despite our shortcomings.

“You have to be there to believe it!”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This place is a truly wonderful place. The service off Dee and Peter is second to none! We really felt welcomed and nothing is too much trouble.
The barn itself is warm, cosy and clean. The view from the balcony is breath taking... We really did not want to leave. There is no downside and I cannot wait to return. Tyn - Y - Fron has been a holiday to remember.
Thank you very much Dee and Peter.

P.S Two little cats often come to visit you - They are so friendly and they even enjoyed half a steak each off us one night.

“Breathtaking scenery, friendly owners, lovely warm cottage, overall fantastic!”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Came here as a couple for our anniversary, and was more than pleased. The scenery was lovely, we walked to a pub for dinner one night which took about 20 minutes to half an hour, and popped into the nearest town one day which was about an hour walk, but it didn't feel that long with all the lovely scenery to look at! The owners are lovely, they came and introduced themselves, then they let you get on with your trip but are there if you need anything. We loved the cottage and didn't want to leave! And loved the warm bathroom it was definitely a plus!! We had such a lovely, quite, peaceful trip and will definitely be coming back again for longer in the summer! Would recommend to anyone!

we only came for a few days but wish we were here longe
