My family stayed at Boffins Barn for Christmas and it was wonderful. The Barn is beautifully furnished, has a great kitchen diner and a lovely log burning fire. We would highly recommend Boffins Barn and will definitely make a return visit.

Boffins Barn at Pen Isa Cwm is absolutely beautiful, with fantastic views. We were greeted by the owners, who was very nice and friendly, made us feel welcome straight away and gave us the perfect amount of information. Furthermore, the property itself was impeccably clean and well furnished and we felt that the pictures did not do it enough credit! The lounge is incredible when the fire is going - just a great place overall! i hope we can go back!

This is an outstanding property. Located in a beautiful rural setting with outstanding views. Both the interior and exterior facilities are first class. My family liked everything about this Barn. The owners were welcoming, friendly and helpful.

Liked the excellent position of the cottage. There was no traffic noise but it was close enough to main roads for any trips out. Had wonderful friendly hosts who were available but not in your face. Everything, and more, had been provided for our comfort and enjoyment, I cannot praise this cottage highly enough. I felt as if we were the first people to use the cottage as it was in pristine condition.

Absolutely beautiful property which offered everything you would need plus extra. Extremely impressed and would most definitely recommend. Had friendly and caring owners who go the extra mile.

The owners were particularly friendly and helpful. They lived behind the Barn, but we didn't feel that they were intrusive at all. The Barn was of the highest standard, we have stayed in quite a few holiday cottages, and this was by far the most comfortable, well equipped and best maintained. We felt we would return there quite easily.

A beautiful holiday home in a rural peaceful setting with lovely people. Did not want to come home and look forward to returning in the future.

Had a wonderful relaxing week here. The cottage is amazingly well equipped and the owners cannot do enough to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Will definitely return and will highly recommend to family friends.

We have just returned from this place with our two (under ten) children. We loved this place. It was comfortable, Elaine and Martin were incredibly hospitable, the chickens (no rooster in the morning) were generous in their presenting of eggs for the week, and the views are stunning. There was a bottle of wine in the fridge (always a nice touch) and when our son's birthday came around, he was given a little fox named Boffin as a treat from Elaine. The stairs don't creak, the upstairs is relatively quiet even with kids up there and when everyone is asleep there is not a sound to be heard. The internet is intermittent, which was a huge blessing as it gave us ample opportunity to unplug and unwind with a book by the fire. Thank you so much for a wonderful time. We aim to be back, in fact that is our only reason for not wanting to give such an awesome review, we want to be able to go whenever we want!

We can not praise Boffins Barn enough, had a fantastic three night break, felt relaxed and chilled from the moment we arrived...all our needs catered for by attentive owners, views stunning, lots of lovely walks on the doorstep....5 * plus a truly amazing property, a place not to be missed.

My family stayed at Boffins Barn for Christmas and totally agree with previous positive reviews. The barn has been beautifully converted and furnished and is equipped with everything you could possibly need during your stay. There are so many little touches that lift this property above any of the others we have stayed in before. The owners are so friendly and helpful, whilst remaining unobtrusive despite their proximity. They went the extra mile, including decorations and providing extra table etc for additional guests on Christmas Day. I would highly recommend staying here at any time of the year and will definitely book again.

I am very wary of reviews written in superlatives but this property totally justifies every outstanding adjective in your vocabulary. The conversion has been done to the highest standard - everywhere! The setting is magnificent with wonderful views over the rolling countryside and with many attractions within easy reach.Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, who are close by, they were so welcoming, friendly and helpful. There were three generations of our family staying and everyone had a marvellous holiday. Well done Ellaine and Martin .. we had a star quality holiday.

We have just returned from a lovely long weekend trip to boffins barn and we were totally blow away. This barn has been transformed into the most lovely rental. a lot of times when going away somewhere you read in the reviews that its a "home from home" and usually this is true to a certain extent, but with boffins barn its couldn't be anymore accurate. Boffins has everything you could ever need, especially in the kitchen making it ideal for making your own family meals and not having to worry if there is all the utensils or appliances you need. All the work that has been done in the barn to transform it into a holiday home is done to the highest of standards. There has been no shortcuts made, everything has been done properly and without using cheap materials. I sometimes struggle to sleep well when im not in my own bed, but the beds at the barn are so cosy and comfortable I had a brilliant sleep. The bedding is spotlessly clean, and is also very soft which makes a very nice change to some holiday rentals choice of bedding. the same goes for the towels which are thick, fluffy and have a luxurious feel. There are also extra little touches such as a grey towel per person to use for your face ( so to not ruin the white towels with make up-always a worry for the ladies) and there are make up remover pads in the bathroom cabinets. I found this a brilliant idea, something I think other rentals could learn from. The living room was so cosy with the log burning fire, reclining leather sofas and the beautiful character of the barn itself. there is a flat screen tv with various dvd/cds to keep the whole family entertained. Outside, the barn has garden all around, in the front there is a lovely cubed table and chairs which is nice to sit at with either a coffee or something stronger, and look across to the stunning view all around the barn. It is so peaceful and calming, exactly what we wanted from our trip away from the hustle and bustle of Liverpool! Boffins barn is spotless, absolutely immaculate. I couldn't fault a thing which says a lot as im quite fussy when it comes to staying in holiday homes. We took my nan along with us and as she cant use the stairs, the barn is perfect as it has a downstairs bedroom with en-suit, meaning my nan had everything she needed for an enjoyable holiday without having to worry about getting access to things, as she had everything on the one level. She walks with a trolley and this was no problem at all in the barn. Its very spacious so my nan could move about easily without knocking or bumping into things. The owners were so welcoming and friendly and always took the time to have a chat. they are very knowledgeable of the local area and gave us a few hints and tips as to which pubs to eat at, where there was a playground for the kids etc. all in all id say this is the most beautiful place I have stayed, we could quite happily go again and again, cant wait to return!!

We booked a week at Boffins Barn as a last minute half-term break with our 2 young children. The transformation of the barn into a holiday cottage had only recently been completed and we were the first guests. Inside the barn has been fitted out to a very high standard with much attention to detail. The kitchen was the best equipped kitchen that we have ever had the pleasure of cooking in in a holiday cottage, easily up to the task of preparing family evening meals (which can sometimes be difficult in less well appointed cottages). The lounge boasts a large log burning stove and a generous supply of logs which are replenished each day. The bedrooms are all a good size and beautifully presented as is the family bathroom which has a great walk in shower in addition to the bath. Downstairs there is a 4th bedroom with en-suite toilet/shower, all finished to the same high standard as throughout. The only thing to be aware of is that due to the location there isn't a reliable internet connection. This could be considered a good thing if you are supposed to be taking a break from things, but worth noting. The owners Martin & Elaine, whose house sits a bit further up the hill behind the barn, were very welcoming to us and we would definitely consider returning. Both our children (aged 2 & 5) loved staying here and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to others with young children.
