If you're looking for a quiet and secluded spot to get away from then look no further. By their own admission the owners, Sue and Dave, are new to B & B and that could be what makes them so keen. Nothing was too much trouble and we were really well looked after. We chose to have breakfast in the house rather than cook ourselves - excellent decision on our part. Sue has great attention to detail and we think that this B&B; has a great future. Recommended!!!
The impression of space both inside and outside this property means that you will not feel the need to venture very far. It is very much a getaway, peaceful location but with two large supermarkets and a number of restaurants in nearby Llandrindod Wells a beautiful six mile drive away, you are not too isolated. We understand that we were the very first self catering guests to stay at The Barn,as the Farmhouse already offers B &B; and we are sure it will it will quickly become fully booked. If you remember fondly how bright the stars used to seem at night then this is the spot for star gazing.
This small barn has been really stylishly renovated. It's beautiful. The mezzanine bedroom is very special - waking up to the view from the enormous window is truly good for the soul. Everything in the barn is new, high quality and clean, and great thought has been put into ensuring that you are really comfortable. Sue and David are just lovely - they are welcoming and helpful. Lots of local knowledge and helpful advice. Sue's home made bread is part of the welcome hamper which is a stunner - bread, home made marmalade, butter, eggs, bacon, milk and filter coffee. Wonderful. Probably the highlight for me was the view. To be able to sit with a coffee and watch a woodpecker come back and forward for peanuts, to watch sheep wandering about and the soppy and affectionate dogs lollop around was so relaxing and joyous.
We have just got back from a weeks stay in the Barn. Pictures do not do it justice. although small in size, it felt, because of design extremely spacious. The views from the floor to roof pentagon shaped window, which occupied most of the end wall, were delightful. We were able to watch birds such as, greater spotted woodpecker, redstart, pied fly catcher, dipper , nut hatch come into the garden and the stream running through it, from this window. The downstairs was open plan with a wet room, powerful shower and toilet. Upstairs a mezzanine super king size bed with a freestanding roll top bath. Everywhere was tastefully furnished Primarily we were on a walking holiday and this did not disappoint but even on the one extremely wet day we experienced it was great to stay in and watch the rain, reading our books in comfort. The welcome we all received was extensive including that given to our well behaved dog she also enjoyed her stay! We cannot recommend this more highly
If you want hustle and bustle this is not the place for you. When we arrived all we could hear was the babbling brook and birdsong. The barn didn't disappoint. The layout was ideal with an open plan living space and the bedroom on a mezzanine. The large window made it feel like the outdoors had come indoors. The owners and their dogs made us very welcome, and left us to enjoy our break.
The Barn is gorgeous and just right for two people, the owners have thought of everything to make your stay relaxing. The furnishings are comfortable and stylish and the welcome basket is a lovely touch. The view from the glass window is amazing, what a lovely way to wake up in the morning and have a bath in the evening with G&T in hand! There are many nice places to visit in this area and the local towns have some interesting individual shops. We were really lucky with the weather during our stay so spent most evenings just sitting on the patio, drink in hand, watching the show provided by the abundant bird life. We also really appreciated the company of the resident doggies and also the chickens (thanks for the eggs girls). We did venture out one night to the most fantastic restaurant, The Drawing Room which is well worth the expense for a very special meal. All in all we had a really restful, relaxing week which was just what we both needed. If you want to visit this part of the world then book this lovely Barn, you will not be disappointed.”
