A Grade II-listed barn that’s won the Green Tourism Silver Award. It sits on the edge of a steep wooded gully dropping down to a stream on the edge of a forest; you’ll feel miles away from civilisation but Bob and Carolyn live in the farmhouse nearby if you need anything.
All the basics are here along with a homemade cake, milk, apple juice and an ‘honesty freezer’ so you can cook from scratch or simply heat up a home-cooked meal. There are plenty of good books, maps and games to mull over in front of the wood-burner, and a games barn has a pool table, table football and darts.
Views are of farm buildings and some magnificent old trees, and a small gravelled area has seating and a barbecue. Plenty of walks along forest tracks and footpaths leave from the door; the nearest restaurant, the Lion Hotel at Llanbister, is a 20-minute drive.
