  • "Beautiful property, a great space for a group."

    The open plan space downstairs is very cool. Really lovely views out the front from the hot tub/patio and sitting room. The owner lives in the nearby farm and was very responsive to our requests.

    Love the peace and tranquillity here, but the closeness to places. Highly recommend The Hayloft, and the owners Melissa and Matt, nothing is to much trouble for them

    Very clean and lovely. The hot tub was clean and warm. The view is breath taking! Was beautiful waking up and seeing sheep in the field! Can't wait to book again. Highly recommended. Beautiful breath taking walks and lovely pubs locally. Definitely recommended to friend and family :)

  • "We had a wonderful time at the Hayloft."

    The owners were very welcoming and friendly. We had quality family time making memories. All the facilities were very well thought of and implemented. There were elements of wear and tear in the showers and dining chairs, however that said it wasn't a problem for us as we felt it was a small detail in the grand scheme of the whole package. I would definitely recommend and would certainly not hesitate to revisit in the future. Thank you Matt and Melissa

  • "The Hayloft is just what we wanted and more for a wonderful friends get-together."

    Plenty of space for board games, communal cooking, and meals. The hot tub was always nice and hot and we enjoyed playing on the covered pool table outside. The view out the glass front of the barn never got old, especially on stormy afternoons. The surrounding area is lovely as well and I'd recommend an easy trip to the water-breaks-its neck waterfall. All the rooms were cosy and comfortable, and the bathrooms clean and modern. If you are a large group staying for more than a few days, bring some extra toilet roll with you. A few bits around the house could use a bit of an update- for example, the dining room chairs are a bit uncomfortable, the tablecloth could do with being replaced, and there didn't seem to be a key for the door to the patio, but all in all they weren't significant enough to hamper our enjoyment of the property. Would definitely stay again!

    Thank you for the lovely feedback! Addressing the points raised... We have already replaced the tablecloth and are in process of purchasing new dining chairs. We're pleased to hear the few points raised didn't effect your stay and that you'd return for another holiday with us! Property Owner

  • "The house is lovely and is set in beautiful surroundings, the facilities are great, beds very comfortable and towels provided, both for the hot tub and normal showering."

    The downside is, its just down hill from a farm, which stinks, a normal farm with normal farm smells wouldn't be so bad, but the smell is really really strong. This means that there is an abundance of flies everywhere, the house is full of them, it made cooking in the kitchen really difficult as the flies landed on everything, more than 30 buzzing around. There were dead flies under the bed, I counted 20 under mine. it really spoiled the stay. The hot tub was lovely and warm, but hadn't been cleaned properly and a previous guest had obviously got in with fake tan or something and there was a greasy scum around the top of the hot tub and brown foam when you put the bubbles on. The hot tub wasn't ready when we arrived, but if it had been clean we wouldn't have minded so much. It was sorted during Saturday and that was much better. There is a fire pit, but could really do with a BBQ, this was raised by a guest in 2017 so hasn't been addressed. Getting a taxi anywhere is a no go, but the owner organised a very lovely man with a mini bus to take us into the nearest town so we could have a meal and the local pub, we then had to ring him and he picked us up. Fantastic service and only £20 each way, although we paid him £50 because he was great. If you could pick the house up and put it a bit further away from the farm then this is the most amazing place. But marred by flies :(

The house was gorgeous and we'd definitely recommend it!

  • "The holiday accommodation was brilliant, exactly as we expected from the photos."

    The views were beautiful and far better than we could have imagined. The welcome basket was a lovely touch and the place was immaculate when we arrived. The only negative we would say about the accommodation is the shower in the main bathroom only produced scolding hot water and the temperature control did not alter the heat of the water coming out. As such none of us could shower in the main bathroom. This is a minor problem that can be easily rectified by a visit from the local plumber. We would also recommend some more comfortable seating are outside rather than just the picnic bench. Other than that the accommodation was excellent and perfect for a large family get away. We would definitely come back and would recommend to others.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Since your stay, we have fitted a brand new shower that is working perfectly. We appreciate your comments about the outside seating and will look into this for the future. Once again, thank you for staying with us. Property Owner

The property

Bleddfa 3 miles.

A beautifully converted barn with a modern style and real feeling of comfort and luxury, set adjacent to the owner’s home on the family’s working sheep farm in the stunning undulating countryside of the Welsh Marches in a tiny hamlet of Monaughty, three miles from the quaint villages of Bleddfa and Llangunllo.

A perfect base for friends and family who are looking for somewhere to relax and enjoy each other’s company as well as being surrounded by great days out.

Set over three floors, there are five cosy and comfortable bedrooms, a mezzanine master bedroom with breathtaking views and en-suite on the first floor, along with two further bedrooms and a family bathroom, as well as a further two rooms on the second floor.

There is a well-equipped kitchen, with everything you need to make the most of the dining area and comfy seating perfect to curl up in front of the TV.

This also opens out into an additional sitting room with a vaulted glass apex window, perfect to sit, chat and watch the sun go down across the valley.

Outside, you can sit on the patio, relax in the luxury of the hot tub and just take in the stunning valley view, enjoying a glass of something cool before sitting down for dinner and an enjoyable social evening.

The barn is a short drive from the thriving market town of Knighton, set on Offa’s Dyke Path, hugely popular with walkers and cyclists with great little places to eat.

You are ideally placed to explore the fabulous ever changing surrounding countryside from the Radnor Forest and diverse landscape of the Welsh Marches with Offa’s Dyke winding its way onwards towards the Shropshire Hills, an Area of of Outstanding Natural Beauty which is peppered with quaint little towns and villages, including the Black and White trail.

The area offers some great days out, with an almost endless opportunity to walk in fabulous countryside, with fantastic cycle trails too.

Why not grab a round of golf at either nearby Knighton or a little further afield at Kington, said to be the highest golf course in England.

Kington also offers Hergest Croft Gardens and tearooms or for a great family day out, as well as the Small Breeds Farm Park and Owl Centre.

Slightly further afield, within an hours’ drive away, why not take a trip to Ludlow, a pretty medieval town, popular for its gastronomic delights, or perhaps visit the National Trust property of Berrington Hall near the popular town of Leominster, known for its apple trees, fabulous walled gardens and Capability Brown parkland.

A perfect retreat offering luxurious and spacious accommodation with breathtaking views, ideal for friends and family looking to spend quality time in each other’s company, perhaps relax in the hot tub, yet being close to fantastic local countryside and great days out.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.
