    “Fridge freezer and kitchen cupboards and drawers could have been cleaner.”

    There was a large piece of broken glass by one of the armchairs in the lounge. The pans were scratched and well worn and there were no mixing/serving bowls at all. We were glad we had taken our own slow cooker and resorted to using the ceramic bowl to mix and serve things in. Also we had concerns about a protruding piece of fence post and a fence post hole on the edge of the lawned area. ...

    There was a large piece of broken glass by one of the armchairs in the lounge. The pans were scratched and well worn and there were no mixing/serving bowls at all. We were glad we had taken our own slow cooker and resorted to using the ceramic bowl to mix and serve things in. Also we had concerns about a protruding piece of fence post and a fence post hole on the edge of the lawned area. That said the barn conversion is beautiful. We visited some lovely places in the area. We also enjoyed fishing in the river that runs through the owners' land. The hot tub proved very popular with all the family.

The property

Nestled on a working farm, near the Shropshire border and with Meifod walks almost on the doorstep, is this attractive barn conversion.

Join with family and friends and admire the countryside surrounds, bound together with cascading waters, rustling trees and green fields.

The interior boasts an impressive, quality finish with exposed brick walls and flagstone flooring sweeping cleanly throughout.

Make your way into the farmhouse kitchen, a lovely place to cook up the family meal in style.

The breakfast island and dining table offer a pleasant spot to gather with drinks and delicious food.

Stroll through to the lounge and relax into one of the sofas, enjoying the warmth radiating from the woodburner.

Here you can watch a film on TV or play a game together.

A set of glass patio doors rest in one corner of the room and open out into the garden, drawing the lovely Welsh environment inside.

There is a lawn for the kids to run around with the dog, and a swing set.

You can idly watch on either from the hot tub or at the garden table.

Indulge in the luxurious bubbles and listen to the sounds of the river flowing freely behind the bordering trees, or sit with a glass of wine and absorb the natural atmosphere engulfing the farmland.

Back inside, a set of oak, open-tread stairs lead up to a mezzanine landing with a high-vaulted ceiling.

There are four bedrooms to choose from, each boast exposed beams and views over the garden.

The large bathroom has a Jacuzzi bath, so the pampering is never over, whilst the master bedroom occupies an en-suite shower room.

Walk into the village and stop off for a drink at the local pub, or spend an afternoon at nearby Welshpool.

Visit Powis Castle and walk the lovely gardens or take a day out shopping at Shrewsbury over the border.

Those who enjoy walking and adventure can explore Snowdonia National Park, there is plenty for everyone at this characterful holiday home.

About the location

MEIFOD, POWYS

Llanfair Caereinion 6 miles; Llanfyllin 6 miles; Welshpool 7 miles; Lake Vrnwy 11 miles; Shrewsbury 27 miles

Meifod is a sunny little, stone-built village by the River Vyrnwy with a local pub and convenience store with a post office, enveloped by rolling hills and woodland, with attractive houses. Situated about 7 miles north-west of Welshpool, this pretty village also offers tennis courts (day tickets can be purchased cheaply from the village shop), its own ruby and football teams and a historic church where there is said to be the royal tombs of 2 former princes of Powys. Fishing permits for the River Vyrnwy and Banwy can also be purchased from the village shop. Lake Vyrnwy with its RSPB reserve and Pistyll Rhaeader (Llanrhader waterfall) a 240ft waterfall in 3 stages, which is counted as one of the Seven Wonders of Wales, are only a short drive away. Both are sites of scientific interest. Gwyndu Cottage is about an hours drive away from 5 of the best places to ride mountain bikes in North Wales. Nearby, Llanfair Caereinion is in the heart of old Montgomeryshire's Banwy valley and is one of the smallest towns in Powys. Just a short walk over the Banwy Bridge from the hilly streets of the town centre, is the steam Welshpool to Llanfair Light Railway. Welshpool is a bustling market town, nestled in the Severn Valley 4 miles from the border between Wales and England. There is a lovely blend of shops, quality pubs and restaurants, as well as a restored cock fighting pit and interesting Heritage Trail. Visit the famous 13th Century Powis castle, or enjoy a cruise along the Montgomery canal. There is much to be enjoyed of an afternoon here. A gentle stroll through the town will have you taking in the Georgian architecture, there is even a golf club with a top of the world situation, overlooking the picturesque Welsh borderlands - a perfect location to practice your swing! Further afield is country town of Shrewsbury, with its half-timbered Tudor buildings, museums and lovely shopping experiences. An opportunity not to be missed!
