Fantastic property set in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the property for 4 days during the August bank holiday with my husband and parents and had a truly memorable time. The barn converted house is set in a beautiful location, furnished and kept in top-notch condition and very clean. Things that require special mention are the kitchen that was very well equipped with utensils of all kinds, gadgets including a cd player, 2 bathrooms and an additional closet. The place is thoughtfully and meticulously done up with great attention to minute aspects. During our stay we visited the red kite feeding centre, elan valley dam, judges lodgings and travelled beside the coast on the Cambrain rail apart from the many walks that are easily accessible and were very kindly mentioned in their list of activities to do. There are lot more things one can get to do and see from here. We had a memorable time and would definitely return here on the next opportunity.

Stunning Accomodation designed with sympathy to its peaceful, rural surroundings

  • 5 of 5

As a teacher, I was looking forward to a peaceful break and this fitted the bill perfectly. Four of us thoroughly enjoyed a walking holiday here. My husband has mobility problems so the downstairs bedroom with en suite was ideal. The barn is open plan, modern and very comfortable. It is good value and we couldn't fault it! I
