About this listing

Beautiful self-catering one bedroom barn conversion. Positioned in the lovely hills near Ruthin, North Wales, UK. Open plan, tastefully furnished, fully equipped kitchen, wet room, own garden, accessible and an ideal haven for two.

The space

In what is now a private hamlet the Shippon shares the classic farmyard space next to the owners' house, also a barn conversion. You are invited to enjoy the comfort of the fully self-contained, high-ceilinged living space. Watch the woodpeckers and other birds on the feeder and see the sun setting over the valley. The garden is accessed through the large oak French doors. The interior has rounded edges and retains original and hand crafted charm, while offering mod cons. All in all, a delightful romantic idyll. On one floor, with no stairs or step and gorgeous bona-fide wet room, the space has also been designed to offer a comfortable stay to the less-abled and wheelchair users without compromising style. Please note for we have another one bedroom property at this location under 'Studio in Lovely Barn Conversion' and are happy to link bookings.

Guest access

In addition to having their own self-sufficient holiday home, patio and garden, guests have access to rural walks from the door.

Honesty policy: Pets: Dog/cat mess should be cleared up by the owner straight away, like in a public park. Dogs or cats must not under any circumstances be left alone in the property. Dogs must be kept on a lead outside the property. There is important information about dogs in the guest info folder which the owner is responsible for familiarising themselves with. Guests are expected to inform us about any breakages/damage as soon as it occurs to enable earliest replacement/repairs. Breakages and damage must be paid for on departure. Guests are asked to leave the premises in a clean and tidy condition (ie washing up done and things put away). Stripping the bed is always very helpful. We do not expect guests to thoroughly clean the place, just leave it in a decent state.Recycling and waste must be separated into the three categories for which bins and instructions are provided: organic waste, recyclable waste and non-recyclable waste, and placed in the corresponding outside bins on departure. The waste collection service will refuse to take the waste if it is not correctly sorted. Complaints: every effort has been made to ensure a pleasant stay, but if something is wrong please inform us immediately so we can put it right.

Fantastic place to stay with everything you need. Jan & Robin were so helpful and approachable from when we first booked and although were away when we first arrived they ensured everything was ready for us and came to check all was well as soon as they returned. The silence, except for birdsong was wonderful and so relaxing. The property was spotlessly clean and so comfortable. Would certainly recommend staying here when visiting this beautiful area of Wales. Thank you

Jan and Robin's place is wonderful and they are great hosts. We were disappointed we couldn't stay longer as it is a peaceful retreat in a beautiful rural setting.

What a wonderful place this is! The attention to detail is second to none, the property is beautiful and immaculately clean. The setting is breath-taking and we felt like we had been there much longer than our 3 days. Communication was excellent with Robin and Jan, and their warm welcome equally appreciated. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely place.

Jan & Robin User ProfileJan & Robin is a superhost.

We moved here in 2003 from London and set about converting the barns. Robin did a lot of the work himself with local help. We have run 2 holiday cottages from this hamlet. We've had a variety of jobs from boat building to film pr and both used to live on boats on the Thames.
