great stay

Great weekend lovely secluded setting , didn't realise the barns were so close to the house but it didn't spoil our break . There was 10 ladies in the house and it still felt spacious inside. Hot tub was great and the house was furnished to a high standard and we had everything we needed dishwasher tumble dryer ect. Will definitely be booking again.

Secluded and beautiful location

Beautifully located barn conversation, with large sized rooms which would accommodate the advertised 12 people. Exceptionally clean and all needs catered for I.e washer, dish washer etc (bring your own washing powder, toilet rolls etc) . All the bedrooms are spacious and towels are provided, Would have been nice to have tvs in the bedrooms, but this does not detract from the fact that this place is very relaxing, peaceful location ideal for exploring the local area. We were not particularly worried that property is in the middle of a working farm and there was no disturbance during our stay. Loved the hot tub, great fun, would have been nice to have had a canopy over it to shelter us. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Amazing, welcoming and beautiful

Myself and 11 friends booked this cottage for my 30th birthday. The owners could not do enough to help us. The house was clean and beautifully decorated. It is in the middle of a Working farm , so take some wellies. The house is very large which made living with 11 other ladies quite easy. Can't wait to book again. Didn't want to come home!

Perfect stay, wish I lived here!

I arrived here at night after a 2 hour drive and found it hard to find because the directions given were from the opposite way, but once I worked that out it was very easy to find. I can imagine it's very easy in the day. As soon as we got in I fell in love with the place. It's so much bigger than what it appears in the photos. It's very homely, with everything you need, kitchen utensils galore! Plenty of plates, glasses, mugs etc, even a dishwasher. (A few dishwasher tablets are left under the sink for guests) You do need to take most things yourself, such as washing up liquid, tea bags, sugar etc. I did ask this beforehand though so this wasn't a shock. We did need to call to ask how to work the oven and the boiler went off but the owners were lovely! We had a great night in the hot tub! Such a bonus and the reason I ended up booking this cottage over others. As we arrived in the dark we didn't realise how close the animals were to the cottage, their are barns either side of the cottage (not too close and you can only see one which is opposite the front door) with cows in, it didn't bother us though as we knew it was a working farm, we even had a delivery of sheep while we were there! I would definitely stay here again if I had the need, I'd love to go in the summer actually, would be lovely having a barbecue in hot weather there.

Beautiful Place, would recommend to anyone

This barn conversion is everything you could wish for and more. Stayed here September 2015 with 10 friends, house was large, plenty of room in the living room, and the kitchen is beautiful with a lovely cooker and hob that was perfect for breakfast each morning. The views are perfect as well, great for walks, and so peaceful. Being on a working farm was not a problem for us and couldn't really hear any noise from livestock or machinery etc, just very peaceful. Local town is only a 2 minute drive down the road, Rhayader which has a good few pubs/restaurants and a handful of shops. The owner was very nice and helpful, honestly couldn't ask for more! Some other nice touches was the Hot tub, the freeview TV, which was a nice size, free WiFi which all 11 of us could use at the same time, a Wii games console, and a selection of board games, which was nice social point for everyone and fun :) Thanks for a lovely stay, Would recommend Glanyrafon barn to anyone who wants to get away for the weekend and relax.
