Well we said last year that we'd be back and we have been. 3 stays booked in for 2016 - have had 2 so far and 1 more to go at end of August. Hands down our favourite home away from home. The cottage is so well equipped, comfortable, peaceful, cosy, immaculately clean and so picturesque. Fiona and Andrew friendly, approachable and very interesting and enjoyable hosts. We're considering trying to talk them into winter opening!!!

Beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

If u want 'out in the sticks' but too far from places to visit, & to experience tranquility in the beautiful Welsh countryside then this is the place to stay. The setting of this cottage is absolutely stunning with views right across the countryside. Andrew & his wife are so welcoming & advised us on eating out & places to go mountain biking with the kids.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments and I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We try to make our cottage as comfortable as possible for visitors. I suspect you meant that we are "not too far from places to visit"?

Cosy & peaceful little stone cottage in beautiful surrounding

  • 5 of 5

We had two excellent weeks in Pentre Barn Annexe. We felt really welcomed by the owners Fiona and Andrew, they were helpful with everything - information about the place, things to do and how to get around. The cottage is painstakingly clean and well equipped. It is beautifully situated with gardens and farmland around it.

We would definitely recommend it to our friends.

There are lots of things to do and places to explore around for people who like walking or cycling the countryside or are interested in history: Llangollen, Ellesmere, Welshpool, Shrewsbury or Chester are within easy reach by car. The Chirk and Pontcysyllte Aqueducts or the Llangollen Railway, Erddig Hall & Gardens or Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall are all really worth a visit.
