Hafan Haydn is in a fantastic location. We spent many happy hours admiring the views from the cottage. Just what we needed for a family with a young baby. It was very well equipped and we will definitely be returning!

This property is absolutely immaculate, and designed by the owners themselves to an incredibly high standard. The owners are next door, and you pass their home as you drive/walk to the property, but they are discreet and quiet. The land that the property is on is excellent, with a wraparound private garden with patio, shed and rotary line, which leads out onto the owners small holding, which has sheep and chickens. The area is so peaceful, apart from the odd bleat of the sheep, but is only a short drive to the beaches at Prestatyn, and makes a fantastic holiday destination. Perfect for families and couples alike.

Perfect hideaway from the world, beautiful location, friendly chickens and sheep just over the fence. You can sit warm and snug in front of the wood burner and still see the wildlife outside. Perfect dark skies for star gazing. Hosts have thought of everything, flowers, wine and fire lighters, its a real treat to stay here.

We absolutely loved seeing the chickens sheep in the field, and collecting our own eggs! The cottage itself was probably faultless! We really enjoyed the fire.

This is a relaxing cottage in a lovely location. We had a toddler and baby with us and they had stair gates, high chair and travel cot ready for us, at no extra cost! The owners are lovely, the little things they thought of made the stay more than perfect. The cottage was extremely clean and the beds were very comfy! I can't say enough good things about the cottage - we will be going again!

Lovely, comfortable home from home with everything we needed for our weekend stay provided. Plus beautiful views with chickens and sheep on the doorstep.

Hafan Haydn was a beautifully reconstructed barn which was delightful inside and contained everything we needed. The property was right out in the country; surrounded by sheep, cows and scenery yet located close to shops. Perfect in every way.

The cottage was absolutely superb! Really nicely finished and beautifully decorated for Christmas. We were cosy and warm and very comfortable for the duration of our stay.

One of the best, peaceful and lovely holidays we have ever had. Everything was brilliant, and the surrounding nature was great. Now we know what we are missing at home.

The cottage was fantastic, a perfect home from home - it was so cosy especially when the log fire was lit. The owners are wonderful, so helpful and accommodating. Will definitely be returning.

Had a warm welcome from friendly and helpful hosts. It was a delightful comfortable cottage, with many thoughtful extras provided by the hosts. The location was close enough to good transport links, yet was quiet and peaceful, and conveniently located for access to the many attractions of north Wales - such as world class gardens, the Vale of Clwyd etc.

We spent our Christmas here and we could not fault the cottage at all. Ideally situated with great views but not too far away from the local town and other main towns. The owners are very welcoming and go that extra mile to make you feel welcome. The cottage is great with a modern touch and very good feel to it. The best Christmas we have had as a family.

We loved the cottage, the location and felt very welcome! It was a great place to stay and lots of things to do in a short distance from the cottage.

An excellent property, with a very good standard of finish. The location and the panoramic views were an added bonus.

We had a very warm welcome and stayed in a lovely cottage, immaculate; up to now the best we have had in a lot of year's and we fully intend to return at some point. Exceptional welcome off the owners - thank you very much for making our holiday so wonderful.

The owners were very welcoming. Liked the tranquillity of the setting and its central location for touring North Wales. We will certainly be revisiting Hafan Haydn. We cannot think of one negative feature of our holiday.

A stunning location, lovely cottage and the owners were so welcoming.

A friend and I visited this wonderful cottage for a three day escape. It was a wonderful stay. The location was beautiful, surrounded by fields yet not too far from the local village for anything you wanted or many other local places of interest. The owners had thought of everything you could possibly need and made sure you had it - from toothpaste to a supply of milk, eggs, wine and cake upon arrival. It felt as if they were looking after you while also giving you the space to enjoy yourself. The cottage itself was beautiful - with a wonderful fire (which we really appreciated as the weather was terrible!) I honestly don't think I could recommend this place enough and would love to come back!

We and our baby absolutely loved our holiday here. The hosts were lovely and really helpful. Collecting eggs from the chickens was a treat, and our son loved watching them and the sheep. The cottage was wonderful, the views were just astounding. The woodburner was good fun, and we found it easy to get to local things like a supermarket, curry takeaway, and even the local hospital! Great location for walks.

Loved everything. The cottage is in a beautiful location, well developed and has a peaceful air about it. A real delightful stay.

I spent ages choosing our welsh cottage and was thrilled that Hafan Haydn was just as perfect as I had hoped when booking it nearly a year in advance. It was lovely, loads of charm, peace and quiet, and every morning I was woken up by the owls .... perfect.

The cottage and location were idyllic. It was so easy to relax there and do nothing if that's what we felt like, and at the same time there was loads of information on activities and places to visit in the local area if we wanted that too. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants a quite base from which to explore North Wales!

My partner and I went with my 1 year old baby in the summer for my birthday. We loved it. The hens tapping in the door and the sheep roaming about was great. The hosts put up a baby gate and travel cot for our child. There was a birthday cake and bottle of wine waiting for me on arrival. The place was spotless and tastefully decorated and the bathroom is beautiful. The views are stunning and it's so peaceful! We are hoping to go back very soon. Loved it.

The cottage is tucked away in an idyllic location. On arrival we had milk, eggs, a bottle of wine and some shortbread and even a childrens magazine for our 4 year old daughter. The accomodation was fantastic and had the high chair and cot for our little one all set up. Our daughters loved watching the lambs and sheep in the field opposite and the location is good for getting round North Wales.

My wife and I, along with our 5 month old, stayed at the cottage for 1 week. It has been lovingly restored by the owners who are extremely friendly and made perfect hosts. Lots of thought has been put into this, with great attention to detail. On arrival, goodies were provided, so after a long drive we could make cups of tea with cake, taste their own free range eggs from the chickens and sipped our complimentary bottle of wine. Small things like soaps included, sugar at the ready, dishwasher tablets stocked etc meant that we didn't have to go to the shops for anything other than our own main meal ingredients. That is a really welcome thing when you arrive after a long drive, and those small things take effort to continuously stock up and provide that added value to guests. That effort, is a reflection on the owners, who have provided a peaceful and private space to relax in. A previous review mentions a short walk to get to the cottage from the parking. This did not put us off, and indeed on arrival we discovered that the 'short walk', is just 20 meters from where the car is parked on the drive to where the door to the cottage is. It was not a reason not to visit, and we had no trouble with our 6 month old, even when there was thunder and lightning! The bedrooms are in a converted roof space. Space is tight, I am 6'1", but frankly, I loved the atmosphere created by being snuggly tucked up in a cosy space. The owners made space for us to put a cot (provided) in the second bedroom, and we had no issues in enjoying the cosiness of the bedroom spaces. It is standing height in the middle of the room, and is only intrusive in trying to walk down the side of the bed - not an issue for us, and adds character and enjoyment to a week away. All in all, I would fully recommend this cottage to all couples, couples & baby and couples with school age children etc - You may think twice with crawlers/toddlers due to the open plan spacious living downstairs, but it wouldn't stop us. The downstairs is perfectly appointed, and we greatly enjoyed eating breakfast on the completely private patio in the morning sun overlooking the roaming sheep on the expansive views. See our afternoon tea photo attached. An exciting setting with chickens and sheep, and fetch your own eggs fun!

The cottage is decorated to a very high standard with stunning views and great amenities within the cottage. We went with two young children and felt that it wasn't quite appropriate for young children as there were no doors separating the lounge from the dining room and no doors from the dining room to the kitchen so we had to put one of the stair gates there but otherwise this is a great place to stay if you have older children. Also the car parking is a little way from the cottage and this was tricky for us with small children. Great communication from the owners and lots of eggs and a welcome pack there for us which we really enjoyed.

We had the pleasure of being the first guests to stay at Hafan Haydn and we werent disappointed. The barn has been lovingly restored and it was a comfortable stay. The house was in a quiet rural location and close to town, shops, pub etc. The views from the cottage were lovely. The owners were very helpful and we would stay again if we were to go back to North Wales.
