Perfect rural holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the barn. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. It was near a farm and we had two very friendly pigs by the driveway that greeted us each morning. The area was rural and perfect for exploring the local area from. We particularly enjoyed a trip to the Spaceguard Centre in Knighton.

Overall, I would highly recommend this house and would definitely stay again.

Brilliant place to stay to get away from all the hustle and bustle. Quiet, tranquil and idyllic. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate returning and would highly recommend to family and friends. Zara and David where very helpful and provided us with all the information we required. A car is a must to get out and about as we visited a few of the nearby towns for drinks and food.

Just the place to stay

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful surprise opening the door to this very comfortable beautifully set out converted barn. A real treat to stay in such a quiet part of the Country yet with so much to do whether it rains or is sunny. If staying here you must visit the dams and see the Red kite rehabilitation centre. Would recommend this lovely place. Enjoy

Absolutely immaculate lovely converted barn

  • 5 of 5

This is an immaculately completed barn conversion in a lovely remote location. It was very clean and perfectly presented. It had all you could need in it. Beds were incredibly comfortable. Bathrooms were lovely and showers better than home! I have already recommended it to all my family and friends!

peaceful getaway in an excellent barn conversion

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here on twice, in winter and spring, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The accommodation was spotless, warm and comfortable with everything we needed. It is in a lovely quiet spot hidden away from everything yet only a short drive to town with shops and facilities. There are plenty of local walks and bike rides from the doorstep or slightly further a field there are some beautiful places to visit. It is also great just to sit outside in the peace and admire the view and the lovely spring lambs! Would highly recommend visiting this beautiful, unspoilt part of the country and staying here for a peaceful getaway.
