Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
With its striking open plan sitting room/dining room and kitchen on the 1st floor, the Granary at Fferm Bryn Melyn Farm offers luxurious accommodation in beautiful surroundings in the Upper Dee Valley.Using a comfortable mix of traditional and modern, the interior design of this propery certainly has a 'wow' factor.I have spent much time ensuring that everything that will make your holiday special, is here for you in Y Granar, from the dishwasher and washing machine to the fridge freezer, microwave, ceramic hob and electric over, from the Satellite TV to the DVD player and CD/Radio, and in your bedroom and bathroom, fabulous bedlinen and towels for your use and complimentary bathroom toiletries.
The oak beams are a particular feature of this barn cottage as is the sunlight that floods into the glorious sitting room.There is a small balcony off this sitting room where one can enjoy the wonderful views.
The romantic bedroom with its King Size bed and adjoining bathroom with separate shower are on the ground floor together with a hallway and door onto the courtyard.As a very amateur photographer, it has been difficult to capture the true effect of this wonderful holiday cottage. If you would like, the sofa bed in the sitting room can be used so that the cottage accommodates 4 people.
Whether you choose to have an activity filled holiday, or just to hide away in this area of outstanding beauty and tranquillity, its all here for you at Bryn Melyn Farm.
There is private fishing on the River Dee within a short walk of the farm, abundant walks in the immediate area, a playroom with table tennis, pool, snooker, table football and darts,and a tennis court on site, a fabulous communal garden with panoramic views over the Dee Valley, which you can admire at your leisure from the garden furniture provided.A barbecue can also be provided.If a relaxing holiday is what you need, there is no need to move from the farm - just feast your eyes on the incredible scenery and be transported!

Daily, there is an enormous variety of birds jostling for supremacy. We have a particularly well fed robin redbreast who enjoys any food left out for him on the maintenance shed! Some of our keen birdwatching guests have also enjoyed a day out to Lake Vyrnwy and its excellent birdwatching facility.

"Wonderful stay at Bryn Melyn Farm"
This was our first experience of self catering holiday homes since our just turned one year old wouldn't have appreciated a Premier Inn room!
I was apprehensive as to how it would be at first but I needn't have worried, Bryn Melyn and Y Granar is a wonderful place.
Y Granar, as a bedroom and bathroom downstairs and a double length living room upstairs. The entire property was spotlessly clean, even in places where you'd expect a bit of dust to gather, there was none.
The whole place looked like it had been newly refurbished last week! Everything immaculate with an excellent kitchen, with all the dishes and cutlery you could ever want and a big dishwasher and washing machine.
The bed was very comfortable and we had a good nights sleep every night.
The complex itself is excellent with 4 small cottages and one big one and the big farmhouse, where I think the owner stays when it isn't rented out. But we didn't have any disturbance from other guests as there weren't any! No other cars parked and no sign of anyone else the entire time we were there so we had the place to ourselves!
The grounds consist of a large grassy area and a central courtyard and there is a walk down to the tennis court, and AFAIK you can make use of the garden of the farmhouse although I did feel like we were in someone elses front garden!
The only downside was in the morning after my wife had a shower and bathed the baby there was no hot water left for me to get showered too! But this doesn't stop me giving 5 stars and thoroughly recommending Bryn Melyn to anyone.

"Excellent party weekend"
What a lovely place, well equipped cottage with good facilities. Enjoyed a enjoyable weekend celebrating our friend's 50th birthday. The whole complex had been rented for a large group of friends and we all had a great weekend. Such a lovely setting.

"Weekend to Remember!!"
We hired out all 5 of the cottages and enjoyed every minute of it! The place is isolated with a nice pub 5 minutes down the road.
The cottages were all very clean with modern furnishings, and the main cottage was a good size for our group (25 people).
Eirian was a great host, who left us to enjoy the surroundings and was quick to help out when we had questions.
We had a few issues finding the place initially, but this was down to the Sat nav directions not taking us directly to the place. We were advised before we set off to make sure we had printed instructions, which got us there safe and sound.
We arrived late on Friday, but Eirian was still around to show us the property. Throughly enjoyed our stay there, and would definitely recommend it to friends and relatives.
