We enjoyed our weekend at the cottages very much- fabulous location, beautiful cottages and warm welcoming hosts! My grandsons thoroughly enjoyed playing on the woods among the bluebells and wild garlic. I have stayed in many cottages and villas in this country and abroad and never seen such a high standard of decor and attention to detail. We were all very comfortable in our beds and slept well in this peaceful location! Thank you Libby and Mark for our enjoyable family weekend!
This was our second visit to Owl Barn and it was as lovely as we'd remembered it. Mark and Libby are so welcoming and can't do enough for you - a delicious lemon cake was awaiting us on our arrival with fresh eggs and milk. Needless to say we put on a few pounds during our visit!! The location is great, close to Newborough beach and other visitor attractions and close to Llangefni which has all your supermarkets and a beautiful nature reserve we discovered this time. It is also only about 15 minutes away from Waitrose and some lovely restaurants in Menai Bridge so it was really handy. Owl barn itself is such a lovely property, we were quite happy to come back early in the day to relax in the massive lounge with the log burner on. It is so cosy and although we were only there 4 nights we really felt like we'd had a good break in a home from home. Thanks you Mark and Libby for making us so welcome, we look forward to our next visit. Jen :)
We had a fantastic week at Owl Barn - the weather was kind to us, but it wouldn't have mattered. Such was the quality of the accomodation. It could have rained all week and we would have been happy in this quiet little haven of luxury, eating Libby's home made cake, croissants and jam!
The outside area was large and thoughtfully designed. Our dogs loved the wooded area and the grass lawn and we loved the views of the bay and the spectacular sunsets. There were private areas by the cottages and Owl Barn had a little courtyard by the kitchen that Mark thoughtfully fenced in for the dogs.
The location was spot on, quiet and peaceful, but an easy drive to some great restaurants in Menai and 5 minutes from Newborough beach.
But the difference between a nice holiday and a great one was really down to the owners, Mark & Libby, who couldn't have been more helpful. It seemed genuinely important to them that you had the best holiday you could at the house in the yard, and we certainly did.
We will definitely be returning!
Our second stay at Owl Barn as a family, and it was just as perfect as the first time! Mark & Libby gave us a very warm welcome, and were always on-hand when we needed more logs or to discuss our plans for the week. Owl Barn is the perfect retreat for us; great for staying-in on the wet days and great as a base when visiting all the beautiful beaches on Angelsey. We can't wait for our next stay!
We had an excellent weekend at the House in the Yard, The Owl Barn. Mark and Libby looked after us extremely well and we had the wonderful experience of dining at both the Marram Grass restaurant (as featured by Michel Roux Jr) and the Michelin star Sosban restaurant. But it was the little details that made the difference, the homemade cake and the thoughtful breakfast platters !
This is a great vantage point to get some Isle of Angelsey culture. I hope to go back for some more one day
This place is amazing. The cottage is spotless and everything from the towels to the bedding to the general feel of the place is very much high-end. This was our second visit and we are very much looking forward to a third. It's perfect for a family get together or a romantic break - we've done both. Dogs are very much welcome - our cocker spaniel loved it. And the private acres of garden and woodland are great for kids and dogs. It's also not far from some beautiful beaches. The fact that you can rent a cottage either side of this one as part of a package for a larger get together also make it perfect for special occasions for extended family. I can't recommend this place highly enough.
