  • "Myself and a group of friends recently stayed at the stables for a 40th birthday and we had the best time."

    Both the main building, the Annex and outside area were beautifully maintained and well equipped for all your needs, and I would definitely return and recommend to others. Perfect for all occasions, wether with a group of friends, or with a large family, there’s something for everyone. The owners were easily contactable, and were able to assist with all enquires before and during our stay.

  • "Great for Gatherings!"

    The Stables and Annexe were clean and comfortable, ideal for our multi-generational family gathering. Special mention for the social spaces, games room and hot tube which were superb and special thanks to our lovely host Louise!

  • "Upon arrival we were greeted by a beautiful view."

    The rooms are huge and clean and we had plenty of towels. The property was ideal for our 12 guests and the games room was a great way of bringing everyone together as was the communal eating area. I will 100% be recommending this property to everyone I know going forward. Thank you to Louise and family for having us!

  • "The house and annex was beautifully clean."

    we received a welcome pack with afternoon goodies. We were a party of 16. 13 adults & 3 kids. We organised a supermarket delivery shortly after arriving. Locality was brilliant. Went to an activity centre (Oakerwood) , horse riding and after leaving the cottage, went to Elan Valley, went for walk , picnic and then Rhayader to see Red Kite Feeding Centre. Had a wonderful time. Would definitely return.

  • "Lovely property with lovely views."

    We went as 14 adults, you and old, a teen and a 3 year old and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. The property is clean and spacious. We cooked every meal time and the house has everything you would need. The hot tub and games room went down great. The games room actually has more games than pictured. We had an issue with the noise when the cold water tap ran upstairs in the main house but the owner dealt with it. There was a nice welcome basket on arrival. There were a lot of flies coming in but that just comes with being on a farm so not a major issue. There is also another property joined on to the main annex for 11 people called the Hayloft so if you have a larger party, it would be ideal. Would go back again!

    One comment we would make:- The Information Booklet needed more detail regarding the recycling procedure along with a more even mix of the recycling trays. But overall our stay was great!

  • "Amazing stay."

    Great location - tucked away from the rest of the world but only a few minutes drive away from all you’d need. Everything was clean and tidy and comfy. The beds were amazing. Any issues we had were swiftly dealt with. The only issue we did have was an oil refill but the owners acted swiftly and did all they could to sort us out. We loved our stay and had a wonderful holiday. That can be tricky for four families with young kids, but The Stables had everything we needed.

    Kitchen well equipped, beds, sofas very comfortable. Couple of things downstairs toilet flush not 100% & Upstairs stairrail bit loose. Games room was brilliant, having a few pool players in group was very impressed with table and new balls. Hole place was very warm and underfloor heating was a game changer. Much appreciated Thanks

    Hot tub was constantly hot, showers were lovely and the beds were a dream! There was building work being done in the property directly across from us but we didn’t hear a peep from them, instead as they were going on lunch breaks/ready to leave offering to nip to the shops for us for extra alcohol or food which was so lovely! the owner Louise was delightful too nothing was too much bother! The only problem we had with staying here was the flies, but in my opinion that’s out of the owners hands so it’s more just a location thing.

  • "Amazing week away at The Stables."

    The owners were easy to contact and were amazing when we needed some help. The hot tub got plenty of use and the animals were super friendly. Facilities were perfect. The bath tub was devine and so much storage, that for the first holiday ever we didn't live out of our suitcase and instead put everything out. 10/10. And would definitely consider a return in the future.

  • "The barn was lovely and very well equipped."

    Plenty of flies to keep us company, compounded by the extreme hot weather....but after all, it is a farm! Reversal of the cold tap direction through us, so don't think that they don't work....just turn them the other way :-) Louise and Richard are brilliant landlords and any issues we had they worked hard to get resolved as quick as they could. Definitely a great place to get away from the stress of life, and although out in the sticks, you have plenty of animals to keep you company (we particularly loved the 2 donkeys and the goats next door!) and the nearest civilisation is not that far away. Great break away having been locked in our own houses for 2 months!

  • "Fantastic place to stay!"

    Lovely living room which was used by our group and was the focal point of out stay. The rooms and bathrooms were spotless and very modern. Hottub was amazing, especially at night. Huge kitchen and fridge which was very helpful. Oven was a bit tricky to get to temperature but didn't take anything away from the experience. Master bedroom was also very lovely and the location overall was enough out of the way to enjoy the feeling of isolation but not too far away to pick up a local chinese takeaway from Knighton. Didnt realise the far side of the stables was another holiday let but didn't hear a sound from the people stopping there so wasn't as issue at all. Overall an amazing weekend away. Would recommend to anyone.

The property

Nestled on a working farm and surrounded by undulating countryside close to the charming market town of Knighton set within the Welsh Marches rests this impressive pair of self-contained holiday homes, consisting of a three-storey converted barn and separate annex.

An idyllic base for friends and family who are looking to catch up, relax and enjoy each other’s company or perhaps make the most of the stunning local walks with Offas Dyke within easy reach.

Set over three floors, the main house offers five comfortable bedrooms, to the right of the galleried staircase, you will find a large family bedroom, consisting of a king-size bed and a single.

Up further stairs you will discover the master bedroom with a king-size bed and an en-suite, including a shower, basin and WC.

To the left of the staircase is an additional family bedroom with double bed and single, a family bathroom, consisting of a stand-alone bath, separate walk-in shower, basin and WC.

From here, you follow the carpeted stairs up to a double bedroom and a twin.

The barn boasts a truly impressive spacious interior, complete with large vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and galleried staircase.

There is a well-equipped kitchen with a large dining table, perfect for enjoying a social evening with the whole group, which leads through into the adjacent sitting room with comfy seating perfect to curl up in front of the TV or sit and enjoy the countryside views through the patio doors which fill the room with light.

For an escape from the excitement, the self-contained annex offers additional living quarters, perfect for a small family or a couple, with the rustic character of the main house maintained throughout.

Make use of the fully-equipped kitchen tucked away in the corner of the open-plan living space to whip up a romantic meal for two, and gather together at the dining table to indulge in your culinary delights.

Snuggle up with your significant other in front of the television to catch up on your favourite show, or recount the day's adventures with a crisp glass of wine before making use of the contemporary shower room to prepare for bed.

When sleep calls, choose between either of the two sumptuous king-size bedrooms, with one positioned on the ground floor for your convenience and the other idyllically nestled under the intimate setting of exposed wooden beams.

Outside, you can sit on the patio and enjoy the luxury of the hot tub and just take in the views of the surrounding valley whilst the little ones keep themselves entertained and try their hand at table football in the unique games room.

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

You are ideally placed to explore the beautiful countryside of the Welsh Marches with Offas Dyke leading up towards the Shropshire Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there is nearby Radnor Forest, a large stretch of Moorland and a myriad of small historic towns and villages perfect to spend a day exploring.

The area offers some great days out, in addition to the fantastic walking the area is perfect for cyclists as well as less traditional pastimes available such as clay shooting and a local rally driving school or perhaps a more sedate round of golf at one of the nearby courses.

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

Slightly further afield, within a half an hour drive you will find the pretty historic town of Ludlow renowned for its gastronomy, take a trip to the impressive Victorian Dams of the Elan Valley in the picturesque Cambrian Mountains or take a trip to Builth Wells, home of the Royal Welsh Showground.

An ideal location for a relaxing retreat offering comfortable and spacious accommodation with far reaching countryside views, perfect for family and friends looking to spend quality time together, relax in the hot tub or perhaps enjoy exploring the stunning local countryside and great days out.
