Wow! What a fantastic place! We have had a fabulous stay and the most amazing Christmas ever.

Mic and Jacquie you have made us feel so welcome, like coming home. You have gone out of your way to make our stay as comfortable as possible.  We don’t want to leave. Thank you for making the barn look so festive, it was a lovely touch. We will definitely be back and certainly recommend it to all our friends. Many thanks again and Happy New Year 2016.

5 years later, we’re back again; shouldn’t have left it so long! Very relaxing and restorative. Lovely time relaxing around the wood burner after walking near the reservoir and the bird reserve at Dinas. Pleased to see Tess is still here – what a happy reunion we have all had.

Thank you for making us so welcome – you are wonderful hosts. We will be back sooner next time!!

Many thanks

Fantastic place to stay in Wales – we could not have found a better place than Penrhyn Barn for a family holiday. The grandchildren loved playing in the river and with the resident host – Tess the sheepdog.

Thank you Mic and Jacquie for providing us with such a great place, no stress, no phones, no noise – perfect!

17th - 23rd July 2010

Really enjoyable break here at Penrhyn, despite the rain! Lovely to see the beautiful scenery on the sunny days. Enjoyed the local area, fishing in the river and caught two brown trout and saw an otter! – also the forest walks and the mountain bike trail is fantastic. Brilliant beaches too at Pembrey – this location has it all. Many thanks

4th  - 11th Sept 2009

Don’t want to leave!! What an exceptional place and location. The barn provided everything we could have hoped for and more besides. Jacquie and Mic were the perfect hosts – plus of course Tess who played a significant role in settling down our spaniels. I only hope she doesn’t miss them too much.

We could not imagine a better holiday spot. Great views, lovely walks from the doorstep, the river and its features, the weir, the gorge and the pool. Lots more out and about. Friendly locals, great pubs and excellent dining.

A week was not nearly enough and God willing we will be returning to enjoy it all again – and not too long from now.

Such comfy beds as well, our batteries are fully charged and ready to return to the fray.

A big thank you for making us so welcome and sharing your little bit of paradise with us. See you soon - we promise!
