Thistledown Barn is available to single people or couples. In order to preserve peace for everyone, we regret that children and dogs are not permitted.
We have a stunningly beautiful, but remote location. You can only get within a mile of the house by public transport, so a car is almost essential. You will look out over green fields to the Berwyn hills. The location is elevated, sunny and sheltered; a rare combination.

You can use a private stone patio area to relax and pray when the weather is suitable. You are welcome to enjoy the grounds, or you can walk in countryside for many miles in any direction.

Guests use a modern luxury kitchen with every convenience

Most of us think that peace is an absence of trouble. But it is much more than that. It is an enduring sense of wellbeing that is stronger than the fear, insecurity and inadequacy that many people live with.
