We have had a magical relaxing time here with wonderful weather. The sunsets from the patio are stunning. We have loved walking. We have loved Loggerheads Country Park . We look forward to returning when Covid is less prevalent and exploring the local businesses more!. Thanks all for such a great time.

Thanks for such a relaxing stay. The Longbarn is the best equipped cottage we’ve visited and is an excellent base for all the activities North Wales has to offer. Zoe was a wonderful host very friendly and welcoming. We’ll have to start planning our 2022 trip!

We have had a fabulous time in this wonderful holiday home. We have enjoyed living in luxury and will take home lots of lovely memories. Being here has helped distract us from our anxious wait for both A level and GCSE results, which are due next week!. Fingers crossed… Thank you so much and we hope to be back soon.

“We have had a wonderful fortnight at The Longbarn. The property is luxuriously furnished and equipped with everything a guest might need. We enjoyed long, cosy days here and The Longbarn was glorious to come back to after busy days out – the sunsets from the patio !! Love the munching sheep. We climbed Snowdon, went on the Zipwire at Penrhyn Quarry, walked up Moel Famau and visited Chester and Llandudno. Highly recommend Bodnant Gardens and Newborough beach inn Anglesey as well as Conwy Castle. Thank you so much Zoe for encouraging us to feel at home. We’ll miss being here.”

“Fantastic cottage, beautiful attention to detail, even have “straighteners”. One of the best Rural Retreats we have ever stayed in and we have been visiting them since 1985. Enjoyed some circular walks including Moel Arthur and Llyn Brenig, lovely gardens at Bodnant, convenient easy walk into Ruthin, interesting town.”

“ We came , we saw, but little was conquered – well other than good food, great wine and beautiful countryside. The barn is just perfect and we all managed to relax and enjoy some good weather and day trips. Snowdonia is more magnificent than we remembered!”

Upon driving long the track approaching The Longbarn we were immediately in awe, as we entered our breath was taken away, absolutely stunning, the layout, quality, detail, décor, views and more.

Close by for amenities but far enough away for peace and tranquillity. My 40th will remain with me as a fantastic break away, not just because of the company but also because of The Longbarn.

Practically perfect in every way and the boys Yogi and Archie loved it too. Thank you and thank you to my partner for searching and finding it.”

Thank you so much for all the care and attention you have given to renovating the Longbarn and ensuring visitors have all they need, We used the guides to explore the local area enjoying many walks! We visited Zip world, the beach at Colwyn,  Great Orme (well worth £3.50 for a marine drive toll) , Loggerheads and all the local walks. Such great news! Fantastic!”

“The building has been raised to the ground and lovingly re-built, designed and expertly crafted into a perfect home; lovely to read the history. Fabulous to enjoy 360 degree of stunning hills; priceless to have the long patio with 180 degree private panorama. The Longbarn delivers more than the expected high quality, luxurious comfortable furnishings and stunning oak everywhere. Attention to detail is appreciated so utterly relaxing for human and hound Thank you Zoë and Susan”
