Castell Courtyard was fabulous could not be faulted in any way, we all had a brilliant time-old young alike.

This place is amazing. It has been done to such a high standard and we wanted for nothing. There isn't anyway it could be improved. They have gone above and beyond to create the perfect holiday house.

Castell Courtyard was absolutely amazing! It blew us all away. Everything was finished to such a high standard. The hot tub was brilliant. We didn't want for anything and I can't recommend it highly enough. The owners were lovely too. I think I can speak for all of my party and say we will definitely return!

Just returned from a fabulous weekend break at Castell Coyrtyard with friends. What a fantastic place to stay. Top end luxury in a beautifully renovated barn with more than you could ever expect in a holiday let with beautiful character and wood burning stoves. Lovely outside space too with the added advantage of a hot tub.

Fantastic attention to detail and lovely landscaped gardens with views over the Welsh hills. Loads of room for four families with plenty of seating in both the lounges and dining area.

The house was fantastic. We had a 30th birthday celebration and it was perfect. Nobody wanted to leave! Will recommend to all family and friends. Without a doubt, one of the best houses we've stayed in!

We had a family holiday at Castell Courtyard for my mum's 80th birthday, with several branches of our family (aged from 7 months to 80 years) together for the first time for ages. The house was fantastic - finished to an excellent standard, and really spacious. It rained for the first 3 days so we couldn't get out much, yet the spacious feel meant that no-one got cabin-fever. The house (and owners) happily accommodated a baby, toddler and young children safely, as well as superb accessible rooms for older members of our party, with plenty of entertainment for everyone in between. The owners had thought of pretty much everything we could want or need. The hot tub was also a massive hit. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends, and would be delighted to stay again ourselves.

The hot tub is a great addition to the property! Perfect for what we needed from the weekend. The whole property is geared up for groups and is decorated to a very high standard. In all honesty, i'm looking for another excuse to go back sooner rather than later as it was such a great place! Definitely recommended.

A great property with lots of space. It was very clean and the owners were very easy to deal with, also all rooms were very warm with the underfloor heating!

What a fabulous place. We have just returned from a stay at Castell Courtyard, for half term week, a group of 10 adults and 8 children (teenagers). The place is huge, plenty of space so you never feel on top of one another, bedrooms are in three separate wings plus two lounges with log burning stoves ; the children took over the smaller lounge which has smart TV. Everything is really good quality (Even Jo Malone diffuser) they have thought of everything that you could possibly need. The pictures on the website really don't do it justice, it is large enough to lose yourself. Only comments would be that a games room (snooker/air hockey etc) would have been could to keep kids entertained as there isn't anywhere outside to play football/cricket etc (I would probably change downstairs bedroom near door) however having said this they really did entertain themselves with hide and seek etc. Thanks for fab time.

Went in january for a friends hen party and i didnt want to leave would have happily stayed here and moved in what a place. They have every base covered for anyone to stay here with the distance in rooms you could easily visit with young children and not disturb guests who dont have little ones. There are games provided dvd's a playstation you really will find everything. The kitchen i especially loved they literally have anything you could need want and more and all being in perfect condition everything was spotless on arrival and just so well thought out. Extremely comfortable beds and bed linen is all in perfect condition the decor of the whole place was impeccable. I would recommend this place to everyone if you want true luxury at a brilliant price then you must book. We had caterers in on the saturday who were also fantastic. i would love to go back here. Thank you for a truly wonderful stay.

I have just returned from the most amazing weekend staying at Castell Courtyard. There were 15 of us altogether and it was for my hen/birthday weekend. The place just blew us all away, I saw the photos before we went and thought it looked gorgeous but its fantastic! Very recently converted into a stunning property that wants for nothing. The owners have been very helpful throughout, advising us on eating places and local attractions. We ordered an Asda delivery shop which turned up before we arrived, the owners had taken it in for us and even put the food in the fridge and freezer. A lovely touch was the vase of fresh roses and 2 bottles of Prosecco left for us on the counter! The property is extremely well equipped, kitchen wise, they have everything and enough of everything to accommodate large groups. All the appliances seemed to be top of the range. The place in general was very clean, very comfortable and very well decorated with lots of finishing touches. We didnt even need to use the wood burning stoves as it was nice and warm anyway. The bedrooms are fab, some had ensuites and some didnt, the ones that didn't however, only shared a bathroom between 2 rooms anyway, so it was never an issue. Plenty of comfortable seating lounge areas, big widescreen tvs, playstation etc etc! The hot tub is out of this world, can comfortably fit 9/10 in at one time and was all ready and up to temperature for when we arrived, we definitley got our use out of it! I did a bit of research before we went and managed to find a Caterer from nearby Oswestry, who I can highly recommend, she came on the Saturday night and cooked us a 3 course meal which was superb, there were 4 of them in total, so it was full waitressing service and they fully cleared up after too. All pots washed and put away. Another recommendation would be a pub which was 8 miles away, The Green Inn at LLangedwyn (also recommended by the owners) we went on Sunday afternoon and it was really good food and fab service. I have already been looking at availability for Castell Courtyard for going again, but its pretty booked up for the rest of the year! I think I can speak for all 15 of us when we say we would definitley return!

The couple who own Castell courtyard have thought of absolutely everything to make it an amazing stay; there wasn't one thing we needed / wanted that wasn't there or thought of. We went for my husbands 30th and NYE - there was only 16 of us so it felt even more so like a mansion! The house is actually bigger then it looks in the photographs and has been designed / decorated beautifully. Super clean, super comfortable, luxurious, light, airy, super warm and cosy - just perfect for our winter break with our friends. We have stayed in a lot of houses / cottages as groups before and this is by far the best!! I could list everything that was amazing but I would be here all day. Thank you so much for a wonderful time away and we certainly be back in the future.

Many thanks to aled and family for making us so welcome. This is a very high quality conversion in a beautiful location. Even the sun shone in February! The kids loved seeing and feeding the animals and it was nice to find out a bit about life on a working farm. Perfect location for a family holiday and looking forward to next year.
