A lovely little find nestled into the forest landscape – feeling cosy yet open at the same time.
Beautifully designed – really appreciated the mixture of materials used on the outside of the cottage and LOVED the warm colours of the bedroom, making it stand out from your usual cottage interior.
Very friendly owner who is there if you need her but still makes you feel like you have your own private space to relax – a real getaway. We loved how there was no WiFi and no phone signal – once you’re up onto the main road there is signal if you need it.
The water pressure is a funny one but it didn’t bother us as we were in a rural landscape so you would have to expect it if you stayed here.
Upon arrival there was wine, tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits – very yummy biscuits!
Would definitely stay here again in the future! Perfect for walkers!

We stayed for two nights in this beautiful property. We had passed it a few times on our way to Alwen Reservoir, and didn’t realise it was a holiday let. We found it on this website Dioni. So glad we did. So relaxing, with a beautiful garden to relax in Had my morning coffee watching the birds – swallows flying above my head, and chatting to each other on the telephone line above. Five minutes walk to the reservoir, and it’s magical walk around it. Very comfortable and warm. Loved the log burner! Would definitely stay again.

Two year Wedding Anniversary Stay!
15th to 19th of July 2020
Great bed – very comfortable
Lovely kitchen layout – plenty of utensils to use – had all the basics of crockery, cutlery, oven dishes, knife block knives, chopping board and many other items
Good oven and decent dish washer
Having a splashback at the stove would have been good
Bathroom layout was nice – Great skylight – water pressure via kitchen tape and shower head would not have a constant flow – water pressure went fast to slow – annoying when your trying to have a shower
Plenty of skylights through the property which I loved – awesome natural light coming through
A food waste bin would have been great – we did plenty of cooking and had food scrapes
Recycling and general waste bin – Wales is big on this
As description states, no WiFi and phone reception – this was fine with us – just an FYI if you were curious
TV is free to view channels – system was slow to load Guide or change TV
Plenty of places to go for walks without needing the car or drive far

Just returned from an amazing week at Hafod Y Llan. Right from the start Lucinda and Scribble gave me and my two dogs the most warm and wonderful welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for Lucinda including refencing part of her garden just so that my tiny terrier rascal couldn’t find the smallest of gaps through the fence and gate which is completely dog proof for any other dog!!!!! In addition when my little rascal went missing Lucinda and Scribble both came out to help!!!! Very quickly my girl was found with their help!!!!!
Furthermore, the accommodation was 5 star!!! Warm, welcoming and kitted out perfectly. The welcome pack was spot on including wine and chocolate biscuits. Even a dog bowl was provided. In a perfect location with so many walks from the door step I hardly used my car. I can not recommend this place any higher. Me, Rosie and the little minx Lily will certainly be back!!!!

The barn is beautifully designed and decorated. It has all the requirements for a relaxing stay.
Lucinda has provided extra little touches of tea, coffee, biscuits and wine, water in the bedroom.
Set in beautiful gardens she has created a lovely outdoor space to sit in.
I would highly recommend this place for a stay. Simply beautiful.

We had the most wonderful & relaxing time! The Alwen reservoir was a great 7 mile walk, not a difficult one but great to tire out the doy. The cottage was cosy and decorated beautifully.. we will definitely be back! Our favourite UK break away.

My partner & I enjoyed this barn so much, it’s in a great location in the forest by the reservoir, the peace & quiet is great. We were on a four day biking holiday & all the mountains we wanted to bike up were not that far by car. Would highly recommend this barn for people who enjoy the out doors & being away from the noise of towns. Would definitely return.

Excellent location for a relaxing break. We loved the area and the local walks. Very comfortable property.
If you want to eat out though plan ahead.
Would recommend Abuls Spice in Corwen if you like Indian food. The Italian, Con Amici in Denbigh was also excellent. Both are a good 10 mile drive away though.
