“We would definitely stay again”
Reviewed 17 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Excellent accommodation. Home from home. Very impressed with how spacious the accommodation is. Very clean and had everything we needed. Would love to go back again. One problem we did have however was that we needed to give a contact number for an emergency dentist appt. We could not give our mobile as there is no signal inside the house (walls are too thick) and the pay phone at the accommodation should have accepted incoming calls and this was not the case.

Thanks for your excellent review. Just on the Payphone, this is something we provide which many cottages do not, while others bar incoming calls. We don't profit from the payphone and so allow incoming calls but we've discovered that some companies bar calls to payphones which of course is beyond out control. Thanks for pointing this out and we will add a note to the welcome pack. We constantly strive to make this cottage the best around and although the location, garden activities and overall quality of the cottage is our key selling point, some of the technology we have have recently refreshed includes free unlimited wifi, Satellite TV and DVD, plus TVs in every room. I will also look at ways of providing another phone which accepts incoming calls although finding a company with whom to test this may be a challenge!
Thank you, David Langton (owner)

“Hard to beat”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is the second time we have stayed here. Boys loved the garden, the walk to the beach and everything about their holiday. We enjoyed the relaxation too. Everything worked, everything perfect. We will be back. Thank you.

“Home ♥”
Reviewed 25 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We have just returned from a wonderful week in The Barns. We had a fantastic time. The barn was absolutely spotless when we arrived, and had wine and Welsh cakes waiting. There is nothing you could possibly need that is not already there, it is superbly equipped. If you enjoy seclusion but also only a short drive from amenities then this place is for you. The garden is a dream for kids and adults alike and the house is beautiful and calm. A real home for a holiday. We will be back next year if not before. Thank you thank you thank you!

“wonderful place in a great location”

West Barn is a super cottage - seven of us stayed there and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The location is great - you can walk across fields to get to the beach and there is a pub in walking distance. The house is well equipped and we particularly loved the garden - a real kids paradise! The neighbours (also managers of property) were really friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend and hope to go back!

“It is truly heaven on earth”
Reviewed 30 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Well I don't know what to say. I LOVED EVERYTHING! it was the best holiday I have ever had or its definitely up there. Our stay was great
We had a lovely garden with too zip wires that never get old, a too big trampoline swings that had raised platforms to ride them a great looking pirate ship a tower with outside toilet and eating space the house its self was a treat tvs in every bedroom great toilet except the house layout isn't great there's a floor 2 with a bedroom but a window into the bathroom with only blinds to protect unwanted attention otherwise the place is great don't be afraid about sharing ur garden it's with practically the nicest people in the world and they pretty much leave it to u. Andrew the owner is always at work helping u when we go places he would trim bushes in our way while we where gone in fact he made us a new tyre swing while we were there for us (it was great) he'd give us all these challenges like on the big swing try and get to the branch of the tree ahead and I did it ! So in a nutshell it's more than 5 star accommodation the only limit is Wales itself! So injoy your stay that u are defiantly going to do.right?!injoy!!!:D
