Situated on a farm, very friendly hosts, the kids loved feeding the lambs! area of exceptional beauty, constant flies but you expect them on a farm, would go there again!!!
Just returned home from a weekend at the barn. The photos do not do the property justice at all! The accommodation is over two floors and is well spaced. We had 12 adults in our party and we had plenty of room without feeling on top of each other. A beautiful Welsh welcome hamper on arrival which was unexpected. A well equipped kitchen and a great kitchen table that easily sat all of us with plenty of room for extras.
A few minor flaws - no lighting, solar or otherwise outside to enter/exit the hot tubs which worked. There is a step so be careful in the dark. The hot tubs were great but did trip out a few times, this was rectified every time we asked so wasn't too much of a problem and we were shown how to manage if happened again. Upstairs shower had had a leak before we arrived but with 6 other bathrooms/shower rooms available wasn't really an issue.
Barn owners were friendly and approachable (even the dogs). Overall a great weekend had by all in an amazing location on a working farm with the most spectacular views. We would definitely recommend it to large groups and mixed ages.
So last week a few days prior to us coming to the cottage we tried to ring them for key arrangements but couldn't get hold of them... eventually we got hold of them only to be told that the shower had broken and dishwasher had broken but was hoping to be fixed for when we got there. When we got there the lady took us round and basically might aswell of told us what was working... the dishwasher hadn't been sorted, the shower wasn't working ( main shower upstairs) we couldn't put the lights on outside because it was tripping electricity.., so had to go out in the hot tub in the pitch black and nearly broke our necks due to the drop next to the hot tub as well as not being able to see what we were doing! Then hot tub tripped the first night the farmer came round sorted it day after but said if we needed anything then tough as he wouldn't be available... it tripped again so couldn't use oneof the hot tubs. We asked if someone came to clean the hot tubs on a daily basis... she said that her husband would come do it but he's pretty useless... about 10 mins later came back with chemicals for us to do it ourselves. There was no path to the hot tub was gravel/ stones which meant some of the girls cut their foot going in and out of the hot tub. We didn't get given a key for the cottage so all weekend it was unlocked so we couldn't go out... they had dogs that kept appearing out of no where ( counted four) we get it was on a farm but they were constantly outside didn't go in to the point most nights ( early mornings) we'd get woken up with the dogs barking! It's fair to say I've been to a lot of cottages not had a problem but I won't be coming back to this one!
There are two hot tubs at this property, however we were only able to use one at a time as they both tripped out (on separate occasions) and took 10 hours to warm back up. As we were a large group this was very disappointing as we were not able to enjoy the tubs as a whole group. Also the outside lights were tripped so making your way from the tub to the house was very dangerous.
We stayed here as a large group of 12 for a family get together! it was perfect, very secluded and away from everything. Perched on a hill overlooking hills and forest with just the wildlife to submerge yourself into.
The Barn is luxurious all but two of the 7 bedrooms had ensuites two kitchens one on each floor, handy to have the food separate from the drinks! The kitchen up stairs is huge and accommodates 12/14 with ease. The louse upstairs holds the most fabulous view that you just don't want to tear yourself away from.
Outside you have a enclosed small garden with limited grass and two hot tubs to share between you all. At night this is a wonderful experience to sit and watch the stars and enjoy the peace and quiet!
A must for anyone who just wants to get away from it all
Absolutely excellent property, plenty of space for everyone.
Friendly owners who couldn't do enough for you.
Location is amazing with stunning views. Loved sitting in the hot tubs looking over the valley.
What an amazing place, the owners are brilliant, sorted a minibus for our party of girls into Rhayader, I phoned numerous times with different queries and Sharon the owner was amazing! The barn is spectacular a must see, we (11 ladies celebrating 40th) had a fab time and would highly recommend this place!
