Neat, clean, well equipped, cosy and comfortable. The wood burning stove was fab. It's a really old property - which is beautiful. It's there on the description if you look closely, but not super clear - the owners live there and both front doors (to theirs and the holiday property) share the same courtyard/driveway.
We didn't love the closest town but the pub we found did offer decent food. We enjoyed our weekend there, couldn't ask for much more really.
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the comfort and original features of the barn. The barn is attached to our home, as mentioned, but you will find that we do respect our guests privacy . After our initial welcome we are very discrete, but on hand if needed. The barn has its own private garden accessed from the lounge for guests to enjoy in the warmer months . Thank you for your review.
We had a really lovely stay in this peaceful property. The owners, Carol and Chris, were very kind and helpful. The house was very clean, comfortable and well equipped, the area absolutely beautiful. We would love to come back! Thank you!
Carol and Chris were very helpful, fab communication - easy to book and hassle free.
When we arrived we were more than pleasantly surprised, it was bigger than expected, beautifully decorated and immaculate.
We stayed with 2 children (7&9) which wasn’t an issue at all.
They enjoyed the board games available and both snuggled up on the sofa under a blanket watching one of the available DVDs whilst I got on with cooking some dinner in the kitchen.
The kitchen literally has everything you could want or need, even things like foil, pans of all sizes, cake tins (!) and of course a bottle opener for the wine!
(One thing I did try and look for was a tray to take up coffee and bagels to my partner in the morning in bed, this would be handy)
The house was immaculate, warm and cosy, and I had a wonderful nights sleep - lovely mattress/pillows/covers! Didn’t want to get out of bed!
We stayed in torrential rain, so didn’t get to utilise the outdoor space, but we did have a peep outside and it would be lovely to sit out in the summer with the bbq. There is also total privacy which is nice.
We will definitely be back to this little gem! Thank you Carol and Chris!
We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your lovely comments. Definitely will get a tray for future guests and for your return. Best regards Chris and Carol
A lovely situation.
This wasn’t just what we needed after a very hectic summer. The cottage was beautiful - a real home from home - with excellent views all round. The weather was somewhat changeable but there were plenty of opportunities to explore the area. The owners, Chris and Carol, are delightful.
It was a pleasure to meet you both and thank you for your great compliments. We are pleased that your stay was just what you needed and we hope to see you again. Best regards
Chris and Carol

Nearby are Offa’s Dyke Path, and the start of Glyndwr's Way, the Long Mynd, the Teme Valley, Mortimer Forest, Radnor Forest and the spectacular Elan Valley.
The Radnor Forest with bridlepaths and walks is well worth a visit if you are a keen walker.
