Cefn Bach Cottage and Cefn Mawr Barn have been graded as 4 star (Very Good to Excellent quality) self catering holiday accommodation by the independent Visit Wales.
Had a perfect few days at the cottage and barn. The place was just as described with some beautiful thoughtful touches and was sparkling clean. Mai was a perfect host and on hand when we needed her. This is just the place for families who want time together and still plenty to do to keep the littles entertained. We will miss it and would love to return soon.
Excellent stay. Cottage was everything that could be expected. Recommended to all and will be coming back.
Had a lovely stay in your cosy cottage. Would be happy to live here, especially as the setting in the valley is so beautiful too. Loved the Welsh blankets and all the furnishings. Enjoyed the hens too! Thanks for an enjoyable weekend.
Amazing! Me and my family loved this accommodation. Modern, clean and a great host. Highly recommended.
Thank you Richard and Mai for providing this wonderful cottage for a relaxing and comfortable break in the beautiful Ceiriog Valley. So many thoughtful touches with everything we needed and more - the kids loved the books, the play barn and of course the chickens! We have been so impressed with how well equipped, clean and stylish the cottage is - I particularly loved the Welsh blankets, ceramics and calico print, not to mention the amazing setting with stunning views from the cottage, just gorgeous. It has been great staying here and exploring the area (Chirk Castle and lovely day out in Llangollen too). We could happily stay here and look forward to a return visit. Thank you for your welcoming, warm hospitality.
An extremely warm welcome from the hosts and the barn is lovely and very cosy. Fully equipped and if you have a baby everything is provided for you.
Spent a lovely few days at the barn and cottage over New Years with some friends. Both places are exactly as described with everything you need for a short break. Stunning views from the front of the barn as well! Thanks Richard and Mai for a fantastic stay!
This place is gorgeous. The beautiful views and the inviting vibe of the cottage makes for a perfectly peaceful retreat. Wonderful for couples and families as the cottage is private but rich with things to do! The hosts are lovely and the friendly chickens make you feel brilliantly cared for! 100% recommend!!!
An absolute gem - the pictures don’t do it justice!
Very nice spot, house is spacious and very nicely finished. Boys really enjoyed the games area, local walks and wildlife. Recommended.
Beautiful cottage and stunning surroundings with fresh flowers and a homemade cake on arrival; thoughtful touches that added to the wonderful experience. Mai was so friendly and ready with any information we needed. We had a truly unforgettable time at Cefn Mawr and would highly recommend to anyone!
Beautifully converted stylish modern barn. Excellent facilities. Lovely hosts who made our stay faultless. Clear instructions on location. Highly recommended!!
Six of us stayed for a walking weekend at Richard & Mai’s Barn. We received a very warm welcome from Mai and found the barn to exceed our (already quite high after reading other reviews!) expectations! The barn is superbly equipped and located. It is peaceful, comfortable, homely and modern. It’s spotlessly clean and has everything you need for a perfect stay. It was lovely that Mai or Richard responded immediately to any questions we had. This accommodation is one of the best we have stayed in as a group and actually one weekend wasn’t long enough to explore the unending beauty of the area. Many thanks!
I went with two of my friends for her birthday, it was a lovely stay. The property is very clean, spacious, and warm. Richard and Mai were very welcoming and so we're the chickens! We had a great time :)
Our stay at Glyn Ceiriog was absolutely fantastic. Mai was a warm and welcoming host and the barn itself was done to outstanding specifications. We were lucky enough to have a tremendous amount of snow whilst we were up there (which our 2-year-old and 6-year old-loved) They also loved the games rooms that was fully stocked and kept them entertained (when not throwing snowballs at each other!) The Barn was fanatically laid out with the open-planned upstairs and we had a lovely time at Glyn Ceiriog. We would definitely recommend
A stunning property in a picturesque area. Extremely good value for money. Definitely would return.
A lovely weekend in such a beautiful location. Wonderful accommodation with lovely extra touches to make us feel welcome. The games area is a fantastic addition too. Can't wait to come back!
We've just spent a wonderful ten days over Christmas and have absolutely loved both the location and accommodation. There are so many little touches that make the barn a very special and spacious place to stay. The Christmas decorations were really creative and tasteful and helped make this our best Christmas yet. We would love to come back and try a summer break here in the future and can't speak highly enough of Cefn Mawr!
A lovely weekend in a glorious location, lovely touches and beautifully appointed. We look forward to coming back. Highly recommended.
A lovely cottage in a lovely valley. A great base to cycle and walk although the hills were a bit challenging for our two wheels! Found the local pub really friendly (The Oak) with good food and beers. Hope to come back sometime with the rest of the family.
A truly splendid location and superb accommodation! The barn conversion is excellent and more than enough for our needs. The kids throughly enjoyed the games room and surrounding area - especially the attention of Delilah!! Thank you for a lovely week and particularly organising such great weather. We will be back!
Fantastic week - sunny October, beautiful views, lovely house. Thank you Mai and Family
It was amazing and it had so many fun things to do. The pets were adorable and the chickens' eggs were delicious. Thank you.
What a lovely cottage with breathtaking views! We enjoyed bringing our family to Wales to show them some family roots. It was a nice break to unwind from the hustle and bustle. Thank you so much for the milk, tea and hot chocolate on the first rainy day to help us get over the jet lag! The children also enjoyed your animals.
We had a wonderful time here – many thanks for your extremely comfortable cottage. It is great in itself and also a superb base for exploring some of the area. The views and walks and the surrounding countryside have been most enjoyable. Thank you very much for your hospitality.
