“Couldn't have asked for anything more!!”
Reviewed October 3, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The directions given to find the property were easy to follow and helped massively! On arrival we were greeted by the lovely hosts, Peter and Dee. Dee showed us around the barn and made us feel very welcome..even leaving us some fresh eggs in the fridge!
The barn itself is very quaint and had everything we could have possibly asked for. Bala is just down the road for any bits and bobs needed, and the Chinese is very tasty.. As is the white lion pub!
The only thing I would say, is if you're not a fan of cats, to let Dee and Peter know before hand, whilst I love cats, I am allergic to them so had a very sneezy weekend (my own fault for not being able to resist giving them a fuss).. Though having read the visitor book, I notice other guests have asked for the cats to be kept away and the hosts have done so.
The view from the property on a brisk foggy morning is absolutely breath taking, with the fog sitting down in the valley, being able to see the hills above it.

Made the prefect child free getaway and would love to come back very soon!!

Thank you so much Peter and Dee for allowing us to stay in your beautiful barn xx

“A delight in everyway”
Reviewed July 7, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My daughter and I joined friends for half term in June. I he low expectations as I imagined camping in Wales would probably be wet, windy and miserable. Instead we basked in scorching temperatures. My friend's children wanted to camp so I had a bed in the shepherd' shut which my friend had booked. So I was happy. The campsite had a camp kitchen which meant tht it was blissfully civilised . The loos were clean and fine and our hosts very helpful. We were next to a hen hut so we had fresh eggs and we had a campfire every night.

“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.
