  • Just got back from another stay at beacon view barn no.2. Highly recommended. Lovely welcome pack. Comfy beds. Walks on your doorstep. Clean tidy and spacious with lovely hot tub with great views. You may feel like you are driving to nowhere but it’s well worth it. We never stay anywhere the same twice but this is slowly becoming our city getaway. Good communication with owners and dog friendly ❤️ Thanks we will be back again soon Dee lee Charlie Ben and Chewy the dog

  • We had such a lovely break at Maesgwyn. So warm and welcoming, kid and dog friendly with stunning views.
    Everything we needed! Lin + James are the perfect hosts and made everything so easy from start to finish.
    We can’t wait to visit again in the future.

  • Stayed here for 3 nights and all I can say is WOW. The place was amazing, everything we needed and more the views around the area were definitely the highlight.. perfect way to spend our anniversary.
    Thank you Lin & James, you truly have built something different and beautiful.

  • Came home today after a much needed weekend break in the countryside. Me, my fiance and 2 dogs rented the Beacon View Barn for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. The inside of the barn is decorated to a very high standard and the views are breathtaking. The jacuzzi was the perfect extra touch for maximum relaxation. Our dogs couldn't get enough of the garden and fresh outdoors - I think they are missing it already as we live in a city!
    Will 100% be back again in the future - maybe for a Christmas!
    Thank you Lin and James:-)

  • My girlfriend and I stayed at Beacon View Pod on the 9th August and I genuinely cannot recommend it enough. It was absolutely amazing, the views were breathtaking, the cabin was immaculate and well equipped with everything needed for your stay. It was so nice at the cabin we didn’t feel the need to venture out! We can’t wait to go back and will definitely be looking at booking again soon!

    — Tomos, 18 Aug 2021
  • Wow!! The beacon view pod was AMAZING!! Everything we wanted and more. The view is outstanding, it’s cosy, well equipped, comfortable, clean, peaceful and spacious. We absolutely fell in love with it and can not wait to return (already booked!). We ordered a shopping delivery for when we arrived, the local pub is friendly and food was good. To be honest we were so chilled and happy enjoying the pod we didn’t venture out much, instead we preferred to enjoy the soothing hot tub every day/night whilst admiring the view and breathing in pure fresh air!! It really is a little slice of heaven! Thank you Lin and James for being so accommodating, helpful and friendly we can’t wait to come back!!

    — Julie, 01 Aug 2021
  • Just got back from a wonderful week in the farm house. Everything was amazing. The place was fully equipped and spotlessly clean. Owners were very friendly and couldn’t do enough. Would definitely recommend and we will all definitely be back.

  • As our stay comes to an end, wanted to say thank you to Lin and James. 1 Beacon View Barn is well laid out, has all the amenities you need to get away from it all. You can decide to chill out and take in the peaceful countryside from the patio or hot tub or drive out to see the local towns and do the walks. Definitely recommend staying here and will be returning for another visit.

    — Joyce Wilson, 02 Jul 2021
  • Just had the most relaxing 1 weeks holiday at 1 beacon view, with the spectacular views and hottub, with great Bbq nights and Hotub under the stars.
    The barn is all you would expect very comfortable and relaxing this place is a gem and looking forward to visiting again maybe in the new pod which arrives next week.
    Would like to thank Lin, James and family for a lovely time.

    — Shaun Haycock, 23 Apr 2021
  • What an amazing stay we had , totally relaxed and definitely did not want to leave . The hot tub was fabulous and we were lucky enough to have clear nights to star watch from the tub. Well done to Lin and James for all the hard work that goes into theses stunning holiday let’s . Can’t wait to revisit .

    — Nigel, 11 Apr 2021
  • Fabulous week spent at 2 Beacon View Barns, a lovely property with stunning views that just make you want to relax. The property was sparkling clean, had everything you could need for a very comfortable stay, it's dog friendly and has a very nice hot tub. We came for a nice quiet week to celebrate my partners birthday and it was perfect. We enjoyed walking locally some of the views off local high points are not to be missed and then you can stroll home to the tub. The garden is secure for the dog to wander about and ours enjoyed a sunbath (all be it in November), everything is just right for a relaxing time. There is lots to do attractions wise a short drive away if that's your thing, this truly is a stunning part of the world.

    — Sandie O'Sullivan, 28 Nov 2020
  • A well maintained and equipped holiday accommodation with stunning views and walks to the local villages. Not too far to some larger towns for shopping or just visiting. Also well situated to visit larger towns in England & Wales with other attractions.
    The little extras of tea, coffee mils, flowers and a bottle of wine were greatly appreciated after a long journey. The hosts were also very helpful with our sons O2 medical/equipment needs and we were sorry to leave.
    Lin & James thank you for a great holiday.

    — Andrea Ted & Lea, 15 Sep 2020
  • Just spent an amazing week with family at Maesgwyn holiday lets. This is our second visit having been in December but we love it so much we couldn’t wait to get back. Lin and James were amazing hosts and from Booking and throughout the week nothing was too much trouble.
    The house itself is beautiful full of period features, cosy and spacious. Enough room that we weren’t all falling over each other! Although our aim was to switch off somewhat from the chaos of the last few months it was great to know the house had fast wi fi! The kitchen is very well equipped. The house lovely and clean.
    Set in truly spectacular countryside it’s quiet and relaxing. The hot tub is amazing day or
    Night! Plenty of amazing walks and cycle tracks literally outside the front door or a short drive away too!
    Would highly recommend and I am in no doubt we will return again! Thanks you Lin and James!

    — Karen Doherty, 07 Sep 2020
  • We had a fabulous week in 1 Beacon View Barn. The barn was really spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed. Lovely welcome pack, just what we needed. Lin and James were really welcoming and always very courteous. The surrounding area was really stunning and very quiet (except for the sheep and lambs -but we thought they were amazing neighbours!). We will definitely be back. Thank you

    — Karen & Ashley Wright, 02 Aug 2020
  • We (2a2k+dog)have just returned from Beacon View and all I can say is we didn’t want to come home. So very peaceful, everything you need plus added gestures from Lin the owner. You do feel like where are you heading especially in the dark however the property and it’s home comforts totally makes up for it. The dog loved it and the day trip to Elan valley is a must. We don’t usually return to places but after a few nights away soaking up the hot tub I would definitely say we will be back.❤️

    — Dee Fletcher, 30 Dec 2019
  • Outstanding quality & breathtaking views. A perfect family getaway with no distractions, endless adventures & tranquility!

    The Barns have everything and more so all we needed were our wellies and swimsuits!

    Owners went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect, providing plenty of recommendations and suggestions.

    Could not recommend The Barns enough, although I’m hoping it stays our hidden gem!

    See you soon 💕

    — Zoe Starrs, 27 Dec 2019

  • Lovely and quiet space. Conversion done brilliantly! I already recommended to my friends. The only thing I would suggest is to do a few signs on the way to the barn. It would make things easier🙃

  • Fabulous few days away in this beautiful isolated home. No phones or TV just good friends to relax with.

    This is a perfect place to visit when you want to get away from everything.
    The house is amazing and has everything and more, it’s beautiful.

    Thank you for letting us stay.


    — Tracy England, 07 Nov 2018
  • We have just come back from a long weekend and We loved it! The house is incredible, nestled beautifully in a very isolated part of Wales. The walks with the dogs were invigorating and inspiring as we roamed around the perimeter. Returning back to a dip in the hot tub, fabulous log fire and a few drinks. If you want to unplug and just get away from it all then this is the place for you. The house is stocked with everything you need and Lin gives you the warmest welcome. I have already recommended it to several friends and will be returning in the not so distant future!

    — Maria Haynes, 07 Nov 2018
  • Amazing hosts, amazing Barn with amazing views. Just cannot say enough about our stay. Very relaxing with lovely walks with our dogs. Thank you Lin and James, looking forward to seeing you again

    — Sarah Bevan, 29 Sep 2018
  • We have just returned from a long weekend in this lovely cosy house(which we were lucky enough to win!!) which is set in the Welsh hillsides. Spacious and well equipped the house made for a very comfortable stay with incredible views and a hot tub to enjoy them from. The owners were warm and friendly and had left some lovely goodies for us and our dogs on arrival. We enjoyed some lovely walks from the house with the dogs and children who loved seeing the sheep and cows so close up! Worth the 7hour drive from Scotland for sure.

    — Elaine Sandhu, 24 Sep 2018
  • What a amazing barn, beautiful gifts on arrival could not have wished for better accommodation to enjoy our weeks holiday. Thank you to Lyn and James .The hot tub and views were breath taking 10 out if 10 would definitely recommend

    — Michelle Sawyer, 16 Sep 2018
  • We had an amazing holiday with our dog at No1 Beacon View Barn. Very tranquil and peaceful enjoying the beautiful views whilst relaxing in the hot tub. The barn is decorated to a high standard, very welcoming and treats left to welcome us and our dog when we entered the barn with tea, coffee, milk, eggs, dog treats and bubbly. The owners were very friendly, welcoming and helpful during our stay. Would definitely recommend. Our dog loved the countryside and walks he went on. Cannot fault our holiday. Thank you.

    — Niomi Layton, 14 Sep 2018
  • We stayed here with our young baby in July. It was so clean and the kitchen so well equipped it took away any of the stress a self catering break can sometimes create! The view from the hot tub is lovely and lots of nice walks (even suitable for us with baby) straight from the door. Would highly recommend and look forward to booking again!
    Thank you Lin x

  • One word, AMAZING! We had an absolute fantastic long weekend away this weekend in these beautiful converted barns, surround by stunning views. Lin and James, you have been fantastic hosts and we appreciate everything you did for us to ensure we had the best weekend. Our welcome package was such a lovely surprise, even the dog got some treats which we thought was very kind of you to not only think of us but even our lady. Thank you!! High quality facilities with everything that you need; hot tub with superb views, clean and modern décor and fantastic self-catering amenities.

  • Had a lovely time, barns have been made really homely and have everything you could possibly need in the kitchen! We were welcomed by fresh cut flowers, milk in the fridge, fresh from the farm eggs, a bottle of prosecco, and a pack of dog treats for Bella our dog! The hot tub was great and relaxing! Even had the good weather to use the bbq. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to just get away from it all!

    — Peter Clift, 11 Jun 2018

  • Amazing! Beautiful cottage with everything you need. Tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. Fantastic mountain views especially from the fantastic hot tub which we used in all weathers including snow!
    We were snowed out and the owners rescued us, then we were snowed in and they went the extra mile to help us! Nothing was too much trouble. Fantastic people. We were super warm and cosy and enjoyed the huge television, duds and the games which were provided. Lovely welcome procecco to welcome us and farm eggs for our many omelettes!
    Would recommend to everyone and hope to return soon.

  • Lovely week for 7 adults and 4 kids 3 dogs . The scenery is amazing and very remote. Well equipped cottage with lots of everything you need for larger groups. Comfy beds lots of bathrooms with showers in. Hot tub was well used during our week in all weathers from glorious sunshine to monsoon rain. Plenty of space for the dogs to run around but kept them under control as there were lambs in the surrounding fields. The only cautionary note is the limited internet download amount, we ran out twice during the week as we are all internet addicts but also due to one of the group needing to work using video conferencing but defiantly wouldn't ever knock a score down for this. We all loved the place.

    — Phillip Love, 02 Jun 2017
  • Absolutely lovely cottage....this was our second visit, always such a lovely holiday. The cottage is so clean and welcoming. Highly recommend. Thank you again for a lovely holiday. The Slim's xx

    — Grace Slim, 22 Apr 2017
  • We stayed here over Xmas 2017 and I have to say it was the best Xmas ever. The house is so amazing, the hot tub was so clean it was sparkling and the owners were so helpful and couldn’t do enough for us. They ended up pushing us on the country road in our van as we we got stuck in the snow. I can not recommend this place enough. I so hope we get chance to visit again. Thank you

    — Zena de Torres, 06 Feb 2017
  • We stayed at the beautiful Maesgwyn last week. Despite the fact that our van had broken 50 miles from our destination , we had the most loveliest of weeks. The owners of the farm, Lin and James were so lovely to us and helped us out above and beyond. They picked us all up with all of our stuff from the garage and believe me , we brought all but the kitchen sink !! They took us to the local tesco so I could stock up on food. Welsh lamb on the Sunday was a must. ( the oven cooked it to perfection )

    The farm house , was the best place to stay without a vehicle , even though it is remote. The area is sublimely beautiful. The farmhouse had all the faculties we needed, so clean , comfortable , homely. The hot tub was amazing Drinking wine and looking at the view or stars was bliss whilst lazing in the tub.

    We walked a lot during our stay , the views and walks were just lovely. We saw hares, several different birds, friendly dogs, horses , cows, sheep and the most magnificent bull. We didn't see many people but those we did were really friendly.

    The local garage we used for the van , I would completely recommend . They repaired our van as quickly as they could. Very friendly and honest. So a massive thank you to them !

    The tranquility of the farmhouse and area was a real holiday. It was good for the whole family. 4 children , 1 dog and us parents. We stayed happy and content the whole week.

    So thank you Lin and James for being such a lovely family and providing a perfect retreat from the busy world.

    Liz , Charlie and family. Xxxxxx
