    “First class property in an excellent location.”

    Very clean with excellent amenities. Our family group of five adults and four children thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Very clean with excellent amenities. Our family group of five adults and four children thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Two very minor issues: The wood-fired hot tub was OK but slow to reach temperature and a bit of a chore after a full day out - would much prefer the electric type. Barrier mats at the entrance doors would have been useful as a place to remove wet shoes.

The property

Corwen 6 miles.

Resting near the bustling town of Corwen in the Welsh countryside is Drovers Barn, a stunning rural retreat for eleven guests.

Offering luxury and style throughout, Drovers Barn is perfect for a large group or family seeking a peaceful escape.

Spend quality time with your loved ones in the stunning, spacious sitting room where a wood burning stove sits in the corner, adding a traditional feature to this contemporary dwelling, and a Smart TV which can be enjoyed from the comfort of the large corner sofa.

Grab a drink from the drinks cooler in the cupboard here and step out of the bi-fold doors, opening them up fully on a warm summer's day to make the most of the fresh country air.

Little ones and pets are sure to delight in the outdoor lawn space, as well as, adults eager to take a dip in the luxury hot tub.

As the evening draws in, gather at the outdoor seating area with its fire pit and automatic outdoor lighting for an alfresco meal, or head inside to the warmth of the stylish dining room.

Discover an amply equipped kitchen catering to all your culinary needs at Drovers Barn, with two electric ovens, two fridges, a freezer, a coffee machine and a wine cooler among the excellent appliances, making cooking for a large party a breeze!

Take the stairs by the dining room up to the first floor to find two of the five gorgeous bedrooms, all featuring a TV, consisting of a twin bedroom and a king size with an en-suite shower room.

From the sitting room, take a step up to find another king size bedroom with an en-suite shower room, before a further six steps along the corridor brings you to the beautiful wet room.

A final king size bedroom with an en-suite shower room is accessed via another two steps, before the fifth bedroom, a triple bunk perfect for children, resting at the end of the property, with all rooms boasting quality furnishings and plenty of storage.

The nearest town to this rural haven is the market town of Corwen, where a handful of local amenities can cater to your every need, with bakeries, butchers and greengrocers for picking up any essentials, and a host of cafés, restaurants and pubs for indulgent dining.

Being amidst the Clwydian Range and within the Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Corwen is surrounded by wonderful walking and cycling terrain.

The vast and magnificent Snowdonia National Park is practically on your doorstep and is home to breath-taking scenery and challenging Welsh hills and mountains, along with the beautiful Bala Lake where the whole family can try their hand at some exciting watersports for some holiday memories you won't forget!

Enjoy a trip to the pretty riverside town of Llangollen and visit the restored Llangollen Heritage Steam Railway, with Corwen being a stop along the journey, or learn about more history in the Llangollen Museum and Plas Newydd Historic House & Gardens.

Set in the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, at the meeting point of five river valleys, is the picturesque North Wales market town of Corwen. A charming town offering plenty of local amenities including traditional butchers, greengrocers and bakeries as well as a selection of pubs, cafes, restaurants and a leisure centre, trim trail and children’s play area. Corwen provides everything you need whilst discovering this stunning area. A journey on the Llangollen Heritage Steam Railway, which has now been extended to Corwen, is one of the best ways to see the beautiful views of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in comfort. Take a horse-drawn canal boat from Llangollen and visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pontcysyllte, Britain’s largest aqueduct. Corwen is immersed in history and heritage; learn about Owain Glyndwr, the self-proclaimed Prince of Wales, explore beautiful Rug Chapel and Langar Church, or climb through the heather to one of the most important Iron Age hill forts, Caer Drewyn, built around 800 BC. Visit the National Trust properties of Chirk Castle and Erddig, explore the atmospheric ruins of Cistercian Valle Crucis Abbey and Castell Dinas Brân. Foodies can visit the nearby Rhug Estate, one of the largest organic properties in the UK and dine at Tyddyn Llan in nearby Llandrillo, considered to be one of Wales' finest restaurants. The historical town of Ruthin and the town of Bala, with its celebrated lake, offering wonderful watersports, are just twenty minutes away by car. The exhilarating Snowdonia National Park is just fifteen minutes’ drive away; an arena of outdoor adventure just waiting for you to discover, which can also be accessed via the lovely village of Betws-y-Coed, the official 'Gateway to Snowdonia’.
