Rhyd Gethin Barn offers spacious, high quality, comfortable, pet friendly accommodation in a recently renovated (2016) barn.
The barn has been sympathetically converted to provide excellent accommodation with full central heating powered by a bio mass boiler, double glazing throughout and high spec insulation.
We aim to provide a perfect base for Families, walkers and cyclists, with a wide range of places of interest and activities nearby.
The ground floor of the barn has an open plan layout with a comfortable sitting area to one end and access to the private, enclosed garden through French doors.
The well equipped modern kitchen has a dining area with a table and four chairs and full height windows looking south out onto the garden and mountains beyond. We provide a welcome basket with fresh homemade bread and welshcakes, plus milk, juice, tea, coffee and hot chocolate. And, if you are bringing your dog we provide some homemade treats for them too.
The sunny south facing garden has an area of lawn with patio, a footpath leading round to the river and waterwheel and a secluded seating area to catch the last sun of the day. There is comfortable garden furniture and a BBQ for your use.
On the first floor is a large sitting room with sofas and armchair, freeview tv and a dvd player, there are also lots of books and some family games.
There are two large bedrooms:
The master bedroom has a super-king sized zip and link bed (can be a double or two singles), an en-suite shower room with complimentary toiletries and walk in wardrobe.
The second bedroom has a king-size zip and link bed (can be a double or two singles) with clothes hanging space and a chest of drawers.
There is a family bathroom which includes a P shaped bath with shower over, we provide complimentary toiletries.

The Building - the restoration of the barn took into consideration the local environment and wildlife as well as wider environmental considerations.
The building has been insulated to the latest building regulatory standards with double glazing throughout to ensure efficient heating of the space.
Heating and hot water is via a bio mass wood pellet boiler, the pellets are manufactured locally from local wood and meet the latest Ofgem BSL standards, we also collect the pellets when out shopping so no extra mileage for deliveries.
Water - drinking water is from a local spring which is double filtered and sterilized and neutralised via UV light on site, our water system is inpected annually by Denbighshire County Council. Waste water is processed on site via a Bio Digester which puts clean water out into the river beside us.
All lighting in the barn uses low energy light bulbs either CFL or LED.
Every summer we have families of nesting Martins and Swallows and nesting sites have been provided in and around the barn and our home to accommodate them.
Bat boxes have been built into the external walls of the barn and the ridge tiles adapted to allow bats to access the roof space as well.
Salmon and Trout spawn in the river beside us which is a tributary to the River Dee and guests are encouraged not to disturb the riverbed.
We also put out feeders for the wide population of wild birds which regularly visit us.
Our Guests - we enable and encourage our guests to recycle paper, glass, cans, plastic and cardboard by providing bins for collection and Denbighshire County Council guidelines. We also provide a compost bucket which we add to our hot composter in our garden.
We encourage our guests to use local suppliers for food, highlighting those that provide local or organic produce in particular.
We also provide information for our guests to take local walks which they can do from the door.
