A high rate of repeat bookings. Owners live within 400 metres so are on hand if necessary. Ample outside space with adjoining farm land, safe for children.

About the Owner

Rhys and Marian Owen purchased the small holding in 2003 and over two years lovingly converted the old cowbarn into a special place that guests could enjoy short and long breaks.

Many many years ago Rhys's family were tenants on the small holding but had to vacate after the death of his grandfather, it was quite emotional when 30 years later he and Marian were able to purchase the old family home.

Rhys and Marian live some 400 metres from Pistyll Y Glo and farm the adjoning land.

Rhys is a part time farmer as well as running his own business, Marian after University was a social worker but left to bring up their 3 children, she now works as a Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages.

Beautiful cottage, peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cottage in a peaceful location - just what the doctor ordered. Great for the twins to run around safely outside and parents to relax and enjoy the views. A great base for visiting North Wales with everything you could need while on holiday. Highly recommended.

An excellent cottage in a stunning location. A great base for visiting north Wales and Snowdonia. Close to local amenities with views of fields and grazing animals. A truly relaxing holiday in a clean, very well equipped holiday home - we didn't want to leave! We would definitely recommend the property. Thank you.

A beautiful cottage in a perfect location. It was safe for the children inside and outside. We have been renting cottages for eight years now, and this is the best place we have stayed in so far!!
