“Probably the best place to stay in Wales!!”
Reviewed May 8, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Came to Wales for a week to play some Golf and to relax from a busy life at home. Found this "barn" by chance and booked it as our accomodation. What we found there was just fantastic. This place has been renovated so nicely and with a lot of love to details. The quality and finish of the build is outstanding. Everything is so clean and there is plenty of space - even for larger groups. Since the house is so well equipped we cancelled our nights at the restaurants and just cooked at home. There is even a BBQ for those lucky enough to get good weather as we did :) Caroline was very friendly and helpful in every way.
We could not imagine a better place to stay at when you are in the region. And we will DEFINETLY come back next year. We really highly recommend this place to everyone (just don't book when we want to go back there!!)

“A Stunning Barn in a secluded spot”
Reviewed May 8, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I travelled to Ruthin to undertake some business, so my mother thought we should make a trip of it, and we stayed at Ysgubor cook for two nights with my 7 month old baby. From start to finish our stay was fantastic. Set in the secluded welsh hills and newly converted, it really was gorgeous. We had everything we needed including a Travel cot and high chair provided which was extremely useful. , Caroline and Dyfrig went above and beyond with their hospitality. I highly recommend Ysgubor Cook if you are looking for some peace and quiet in a beautiful location!

“Already looking into booking next year!”
Reviewed May 4, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A well needed break! The barn is set in a beautiful part of the Welsh countryside. We managed plenty of walks, a trip to Snowdonia and even managed to squeeze time in for a bit of shopping! Caroline and Dyfrig were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The barn itself was immaculate and furnished to a very high standard- when can we book again?

Reviewed May 3, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

What an idyllic stay! Caroline and Dyfrig were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. It's located in a beautiful part of the Welsh countryside and the barn itself is gorgeous- so homely and warm. Thank you so much, can we book the same time next year?!

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed April 26, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

You always take a gamble when a property has no reviews however, we struck gold here. We discovered the barn has only just been renovated, and to the very highest of standards. The location on the edge of the forestry is perfect for a quiet break.The views over the fields to the distant mountains are stunning, as are the local walks just outside the back door. Together with spacious accommodation and contemporary décor, made this a holiday destination perfect for us. We appreciated all the thoughtful little extras provided by the owner to ensure a great, but all too short break . We are planning to return for a longer stay later in the year.
