With its oak pegged beams, under floor heating and Aga wood burning stove, the Barn at Llanerch y Felin provides a cosy retreat for any couple wishing to enjoy the beauty of the Conwy Valley and Snowdonia in independent luxury accommodation.
Situated in over an acre of gardens and surrounded by fields, the Barn is a perfect starting point for hillwalking in the Carneddau mountains. There is a private courtyard garden with a chimminea for barbecues and guests are also welcome to wander and enjoy the rest of the garden.
Rowen is only 5 miles from the medieval walled town of Conwy which has excellent road and rail links with the rest of the UK. It is 10 miles from the Victorian seaside resort of Llandudno.
Attractions close by include the National Trust owned Bodnant Gardens and the newly opened Bodnant Welsh Food Centre with its fine dining restaurant, tea rooms, wine shop, cookery school, farm shop and bee keeping centre.
Further down the Conwy Valley, the towns of Llanrwst and Betws y Coed are well worth a visit and from Blaenau Ffestiniog, a narrow gauge railway winds its way through spectacular scenery to the famous Italianate Village of Portmeirion and then onwards to Caernarfon, with its medieval castle and views of Anglesey and the Menai Straits.

The kitchen has granite worktops and bespoke oak units concealing modern appliances to include touch control hob, conventional oven and microwave, washer/dryer, dishwasher, fridge and freezer.

The conversion of the Barn to holiday accommodation and landscaping of the surrounding grounds achieved a Conwy Valley Civic Society Award for its owners in 2013.
The owners' house Llanerch y Felin is a grade II* listed Snowdonian farmhouse, built in 1590 and the oldest house in Rowen. It was recently featured in Country Homes and Interiors magazine for its sympathetic restoration and interior decor. The gardens are open for the Rowen Open Gardens Day on 18th May 2014.
