Guestbook comments from the manager

Penrhyn Barn is rated 5 stars in Trip Advisor. Although it took us a while to find, the barn was even more lovely than the photos. The fresh flowers and fruit were a nice touch, as was the greeting by Tess the dog! All the bedrooms were clean with lovely decor and spacious bathrooms, the jacuzzi bath was a particular treat after a day's walking. The surrounding area was perfect for walks and although we arrived on the Friday night in heavy rain, Saturday and Sunday were beautiful and sunny which made the views even more spectacular!

We didn't go to the local pub for food as we ate at the barn for every meal or made packed lunches but the local tea room was nice.

Thanks to Mic and Jacqui for making us feel welcome and for providing some charcoal for the BBQ on Saturday night! All in all, very beautiful place to stay. Wish we'd had longer there.

“Perfect location, perfect accommodation, perfect hosts. ”

Wonderful House in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a great holiday at Penrhyn Barn. There were 9 of us and this property was a perfect size and layout, with plenty of bathrooms, powerful showers and super comfy beds. The location is wonderful with river and forest walks right from the door. Mic and Jackie are lovely hosts and we would definitely recommend it.

Peaceful, clean and a wonderful place to play!

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful property. The barn was just as lovely as the photos, clean, well equipped and very comfortable beds. There was always hot water and plenty of games and dvds to keep us entertained on rainy days. The owners made us feel really welcome and very kindly set up a football net for us in the fields. The views across the fields, mountains and river were beautiful and on our sunny evenings we sat outside listening to the river and sheep, idyllic. The lack of phone signal and wifi was not a problem. Mic and Jackie were happy to look anything up on the internet for us and had a telephone land line available. Our party was made up of children, teens and adults and all agreed it was a perfect venue for a happy family holiday.

There are ruins of a Norman castle and also churches and some fine Georgian houses. It was also an important drovers' town, where herdsmen gathered from all over South Wales to drive their sheep, cattle, geese and pigs to London. The Heritage Centre is housed in a building dating from around 1750 and has a small museum with interesting displays featuring some of the myths and legends as well as the history of Llandovery and the surrounding area. The striking statue of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd Fychan, a supporter of Owain Glyndwr's struggle for Welsh independence, stands by the castle ruins. In 1401 he was butchered by Henry IV. The Llandovery Craft Centre is on the site of the original meat market and is now a cafe with shops selling crafts and gifts.

The 'Physicians of Myddfai' from medieval times became renowned for herbal remedies and they are also associated with the local legend of the Lady of the Lake Llyn-y-Fan Fach. There are many castles both in Llandeilo - Dinefyr Castle - and around, such as Carreg Cennen Castle, one of the most dramatic fortresses on top of a limestone crag and with fantastic views.
