"Our 4th visit and won't be our last!"
The property was clean and cosy, we never fail to leave feeling refreshed. Everything about it is perfect - huge thank you to Sue and Dave for welcoming us. A true home from home.
"One of the most relaxing holidays we've ever had, in one of the most comfortable and well-maintained properties we've stayed in."
Peaceful, private - recommended to anyone wanting to escape the demands of everyday life.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We're so glad you managed to relax and enjoy your downtime here with plenty of walking - and some special stargazing! Property Owner
"What a super place to stay."
The Barn at Glanoer is right out in the countryside. The stars in the sky shine brighter and the busy birdlife can be viewed from the giant picture window. From the enormous and comfortable bed to the cosy log burner it is hard to leave and a joy to return to. The owners are welcoming and have supplied many little touches to make it a great stay. The welcome basket was super and we loved waking to the gentle clucking of the chickens. We wouldn't hesistate to go back.
"Very welcoming and hospitable hosts."
A wonderful gem set in a stunning location and equipped with everything to make the stay so enjoyable
"We spent a week at this beautiful barn and absolutely loved it."
The owners were so friendly and had literally thought of everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We were provided with a wonderful welcome hamper on arrival, including home baked bread and freshly laid eggs by the Glanoer girls (their own chickens)! I especially liked the fact everything was locally sourced and the milk was supplied in a glass bottle not a plastic carton. I hate plastic milk cartons!! The barn was extremely clean and the bed linen and towels smelt gorgeous. The owners also allowed us to freely use their land to exercise our dogs which was amazing. The dogs absolutely loved it. We were also given a bag of dog treats and access to towels, leads, toys, wipes and even hi-viz dog coats and collars! So thoroughly thought out and greatly appreciated. It was so peaceful with the sound of the stream and the birds….we even saw a woodpecker! It was a great place to retreat to especially when having a busy Manchester life! We will definitely be returning. (If they’ll have us of course) :-) Verity, Mike, Poirot and Vera
"We had a lovely week at the barn it was comfortable and lacked for nothing."
The surroundings were lovely and we were greeted each morning by the chickens clucking gently. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts who looked after us so well. We would recommend this holiday as a lovely quiet relaxing place to stay, With everything you need.
"The Hosts were so welcoming and left a delicious hamper for our 1st morning."
The accommodation and setting was simply gorgeous would highly recommend!
"It was my second time at the Barn and another lovely stay."
I was made to feel so welcomed and the welcome pack is a lovely touch. Thank you both for a lovely relaxing stay and I hope to be back again!
Owners have thought of everything you need and lots of extra touches. Second time at this property. We love it!
"Hosts were very welcoming and helpful."
The Barn is a wonderful little retreat, the weather was ridiculously hot, but thankfully we had fans to try and get some airflow and the covered patio was a life saver. The hosts gardens are beautiful and a wonderful place for quiet contemplation.
"Sue and Dave were very welcoming of both myself and my dogs."
They were v respectful of privacy but were around for advice and help when needed. The property is a treat, really comfy and stylish, the window majestic with nature on your door step. It’s lovely
"We have just returned from a lovely week at the Barn."
We had a thoroughly relaxed, chilled out time which was just what we needed. The welcome from Sue and Dave was exceptional. The hamper we were given on arrival with lots of locally produced and home made goodies was excellent. Sue even made us bread and jam to take home!! They really are a genuinely lovely couple!! Even the dogs, Kiti & Poli and the hens made us feel welcome! The Barn was very clean and comfortable and very dog friendly. Our miniature schnauzer, Mollie was provided with treats, toys, towels and throws for the furniture. The Barn is well equipped and we had everything we needed. The gardens and surrounding area are stunning. Beautiful views and lots of places within a short distance to visit. The local pub, the Hundred House Inn serves great food and is well worth a visit. We enjoyed sitting in the courtyard outside the property with the highly scented Jasmine and we were delighted when the fairy lights came on at dusk giving the area a magical feel. This is a hidden gem and would be equally lovely to visit in winter with the wood burning stove and fire pit. We had a fab time and would not hesitate to recommend.
"Dave and Sue are brilliant hosts and made us feel very welcome."
Everything you could possibly need is supplied for you at The Barn (even for your dog). A welcome hamper is included, which is a real treat. The Barn is super comfy and clean. The surrounding gardens are beautiful. A really special place to relax and unwind. We loved it! Dave, Alison and Molly Dudley, West Midlands
"Idyllic location with outstanding views of surrounding countryside."
"Fabulous welcome from the owners; great attention to detail with the lovely little touches (e."
G. homemade bread, fresh eggs, flowers, logs for fire etc.). Lovely retreat for a couple looking to just relax in peaceful surroundings, with nothing but rolling hills (sheep and lambs in spring) and the stars at night! Excellent facilities to enjoy the stay inside and out. Lovely walk at nearby Water-break-it’s-neck - in lovely mid Wales. Plenty to do post lockdown in Builth Wells, Llandrindod Wells and Hereford. We even did a drive to Cardiff during our stay! Hope to stay again in the future.
"We stayed in the barn 5 years ago and it was just as wonderful as we remembered."
It was the perfect place to relax and unwind after working none stop through the pandemic. The barn was spotless and plenty of cleaning materials were supplied for us. Sue also went the extra mile and arranged some balloons in the cottage for my partners birthday. Thank you & see you again soon x
"Wonderful place to stay"
"Ideal base for a rural retreat."
Friendly owners show how it should be done, lots of welcoming touches. Unusual but very comfortable barn conversion.
"As Sykes property owners ourselves, it was obvious to us that Sue & Dave really care about their guests and care about their guests' holiday experience."
The barn conversion has been a labour of love, is extremely comfortable, with so many personal touches. As hosts, Sue & Dave were perfect - very welcoming and there for a friendly chat but completely unobtrusive. We loved the wonderful outlook onto the trees, the large covered patio area and being able to wander in the garden. We had a week of superb walking in the area and really enjoyed the solitude of the Welsh Hills. Glanoer is perfectly placed, within easy reach of so many places to visit.The Hundred House pub was friendly, serving good value pub meals in their large marquee. We would love to return, Glanoer is a very special place.
"We found the perfect getaway here, suits our needs perfectly and we will be back soon."
"A fantastic setting and very well equipped as well as some unexpected extras!"
Sue and Dave were great hosts - helpful and friendly but not intrusive. One of our best holiday homes ever!
"Sue and Dave were exceptionally welcoming and helpful."
There were lots of thoughtful touches that made the stay special. The welcome treats were lovely.
"Sue and Dave Exceeded our expectations which they have done on our other two visits, a cheery welcome from Sue and both the dogs !"
Because of the Coronavirus we didn’t do as much as we normally would but what a place to just chill out in an amazing property with everything you could possibly need. Just to sit and watch the birds on the feeders while reading a book in front of the wood burner and at times see the red kites soaring above is sheer bliss. If the property was a shed in a field and Sue had fitted it out with all the things you could ever need as she does we would be happy to stay but in this stunning property what more can I say! We cannot recommend this property and owners to much, the only down side this time was we could not give Sue a hug when we left
"Honestly was such a beautiful stay for the little weekend get away we wanted!"
"This barn is such a delight, despite Storm Dennis joining us for our weekend retreat we were able to shut away and truly loved this little gem."
"Absolutely wonderful property!"
The owners, Sue and Dave have thought of everything from the beautiful welcome hamper to the bottle of fizz for our anniversary. An oasis of peace and calm, would not hesitate to recommend, can't wait to go back!
"We had a brilliant break at the barn with our Springer Spaniel who loved it also!"
The barn is beautiful, and feels like a real treat with the spectacular views, roll top bath and log burner, whilst also keeping a cosy and relaxed feel, which is super dog friendly! It was a perfect escape away for us for a few nights, and we would highly recommend Staying here. The owners obviously really care about providing a welcoming, relaxed & high quality venue which exceeded our expectations. We’ll be back!
"The Barn is a truly wonderful place to say."
It is spaciousness and immaculately clean. From the minute you step through the door you completely relax and unwind. It is extremely comfortable and Sue and Dave have thought of lots of lovely features and additional touches to make your stay as comfortable as possible. My 4th stay here and I will definitely be returning.
"Had the most amazing stay,have stayed in lots of places over Wales but this is our favourite so far,sue and Dave are fantastic hosts really welcoming without being intrusive, the barn is beautiful with everything you need for a perfect stay,places to eat I would recommend is the red lion and the swan hotel in Kingston well worth a drive,you also have the beautiful waterfalls not far away the scenery is breathtaking we will definitely be returning."
"From the initial emails with detailed, helpful directions and good wishes for a safe journey to the final thanks and goodbyes, we had a lovely holiday."
Sue and Dave are really great Owners, not in the least intrusive but easily available, friendly and helpful. The Barn itself was lovely, very clean and comfortable with many helpful little extras and a great view from the huge front window.. Really enjoyed the welcome hamper including some eggs from the happy, funny Hens. The gardens are pretty and interesting, including a hidden pond with waterlilies and also a fountain. The local Pub serves lunches and is just a 2 mile walk away (or very short drive). We've come back from our holiday at the Barn feeling relaxed and happy. We've already booked for our Anniversary next year so you know it must be good!
"This place does exactly what it says: relax, rewind, refresh."
The location is stunning with beautiful views and well situated for trips out. The barn itself is fantastic with everything you need and the owners Sue & Dave have gone out of their way to think of everything- even down to little notes around the house to help.The dogs are friendly and well behaved and the chickens are really funny to watch and give you amazing eggs which are provided in a lovely welcome hamper. It was so tranquil and lovely to just sit and watch the birds feeding . This place really deserves 5 stars
"The Barn at Glanoer is absolutely fantastic, it is such a relaxing getaway."
The countryside is beautiful and waking up to the view every morning was a pleasure. Sue and Dave were so friendly and welcoming. The welcome hamper was a lovely gesture (the bacon and eggs were stunning!). It is perfect for bringing a dog and everything was taken care of (spare towels, water bowl, treats, toys etc). There is so much to see and do around Glanoer and you don't even need to drive anywhere, there are great walks that can be accessed straight from the barn. The Barn itself has a great kitchen and living area for relaxing. It's great to put the wood burner on and chill out for the evening. The bedroom is fantastic with such a comfy bed and watching the sun go down while being in the amazing bath was beautiful. Overall, there is nothing that would have made our stay more enjoyable. Me and my fiancée came away feeling relaxed and refreshed (and Oscar the dog loved it too!) and we will certainly coming back.
"The hosts we're very friendly and welcoming."
The views were spectacular and it was great to watch the wildlife. We saw a woodpecker on one of the bird feeders (one that I have never seen before). Our labrador loved the brook and enjoyed his daily walks around the fields. We have taken away many happy memories.
"A beautiful well presented barn, amazing views, quiet relaxing location, Dave & Sue the owners were very friendly & welcoming."
The little gifts upon arrival were very nice too in the welcome hamper, the wood burner, the lovely bath made this a fantastic place to stay.
"Perfect last minute get away with the other half and the dog."
Plenty of walks and places to visit near by. We felt very welcomed by the owners, the doggies and the Glenoar Girls!! We can't wait to return!! Heaven on earth.
"Perfect location, great hosts, everything was thought of to make our stay so much better."
Would highly recommend.
"The barn was a fantastic property, this was our third visit and we've already booked to return next year."
Sue and Dave are the perfect hosts - a warm welcome with a basket of goodies and they're only next door if you need anything.
"Excellent barn Sue and Dave lovely owners was there to help if needed visited different places really enjoyed it."
"Our hosts were like family."
The welcome was warm and generous the welcome basket was amazing (so thoughtful at Christmas time) the barn was decorated for the season. We really felt like we lived there.
"Accommodation was so relaxing."
Very well equipped. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend it to our family and friends. It is well worth a visit to this peaceful barn.
"The barn at glanoer is fantastic, Sue and Dave are excellent hosts 3rd year in a row :)"
"Lovely holiday barn."
Everything you needed was there. Welcome hamper was really nice. Very dog friendly including Sue and Dave’s dogs. Lovely hosts. If you want to see plenty of birds feeding outside your door in the morning and lots of happy chickens, this is the place to be. Great holiday and would highly recommend.
"This holiday rental should rank among Sykes flagship properties."
We can't praise Sue and Dave highly enough for their incredible kindness and care, their attention to detail is second to none. On arrival at this little piece of heaven, you are greeted by your lovely hosts and made to feel that this is all yours to wander around in at will; the feeling of letting the rest of the world slip away for a while is just wonderful. The facilities at Glanoer are of a very high standard throughout with the emphasis on your comfort. The property stands in the most delightful grounds with plenty of areas to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet or if you prefer a 'gaggle' of free range chickens to feed, they are there for your entertainment! We will be returning to this property time and time again.
"We enjoyed our break at the BARN it was a beautiful cottage Sue&Dave were very ..."
We enjoyed our break at the BARN it was a beautiful cottage Sue&Dave were very nice hosts we did quite a lot of travel around mid wales and it was a pleasure to return we were totally relaxed within half an hour Brian & Christine
"The Barn at Glanoer is a little piece of paradise from the minute you step through the door."
There is a welcome hamper with locally sourced and homemade goodies to provide you with a quick meal after your drive. The accommodation is beautifully decorated and is extremely spacious. Cathedral windows give you an excellent view over the surrounding countryside and the roll top bath is a little bit of pure luxury. The owners Sue and Dave go out of their way to ensure you have everything you need to enjoy your stay and provide a comprehensive welcome book and lots of leaflets on what to do in the surrounding areas. If you are looking for a wonderfully peaceful, holiday to relax and rejuvenate this is the place to go. You will not be disappointed. The worst thing is driving away at the end of your stay.
"This is our 3rd visit to The Barn @ Glanoer."
Dave and Sue Stone are perfect hosts. Excellent welcome pack including home made bread, marmalade, eggs from their own chickens, milk and butter all locally produced. It a great base to explore Mid Wales from. Most roads in the area are well maintained (few pot holes) and make getting out and about more pleasurable. Plenty of places for walking and observing wildlife. Elan Valley near Rhayader is recommended. Further out Powis Castle and gardens are amazing (near Welshpool). Lovely walks by the river Wye at Builth Wells are also great. There is so much to do and see in the area a week will fly by. If you don’t want to travel every day, relaxing on the patio with a BBQ watching the many species of birds on the feeders is a great way to relax and recharge your batteries.
The Barn at Glanoer ticks all the boxes for a relaxing holiday, the thought and detail that is put into how well the Barn is equipped is stunning! Everything that you would ever need is there and a lot I bet that you didn’t know you did!! The view out of the massive windows from the bed in the morning is to die for and to wake to the sound of birds and the country makes for a wonderful start to your day. Our dog Madi thought she was in heaven as all we had to do was to take her across the bridge over the stream then she could have her morning run around the large field. The hosts Sue and Dave make you feel so at home with a well honed knack of giving you space and privacy but bein so friendly and there for you if you need them or just want a chat. I think I am making this all sound to good (which it is) just hope you all haven’t booked the Barn up so we can’t stay when we next want to visit!
"Everything and more at this wonderful location."
We enjoyed every second of our holiday break. Our hosts Sue and Dave were so hospitable and nothing g to much trouble. We would recommend this tranquil and stunning location to anyone.
"Sue & Dave, went out of their way to make our stay so relaxing & special."
Their attention to detail, with lots of extra touches was just fab.
"Had a fantastic few days away at Glanoer, it had everything you could possibly need, Sue was lovely, a very warm welcome, a fab food basket to start us off, what a delight."
The owners are very good on the little extras, with a lovely welcome hamper. Could not fault this place.
"Perfect that's all I need to say"

"It was the ideal property."
I could not fault it, from the couple who owned it to the picturesque location
"Everything about this holiday was outstanding, from the accommodation to the hosts."
"A beautiful property in the most stunning rural location."
Quiet, remote, and sophisticatedly decorated - a perfect setting for relaxing and unwinding. Sue and Dave are impeccable hosts, so welcoming. Highly recommend this accommodation.
"The Barn at Glanoer, the perfect break."
We arrived to a warm welcome form Sue and the dogs, shown around and received a lovely welcome hamper. The barn was bigger than I expected from the photo's, the views and countryside stunning. We had the hens visit regularly every morning for their breakfast crumbs, our thankyou for their delicious eggs. Sue and Dave were the perfect hosts and nothing was to much trouble. We had a week of relaxation, pottering around the surrounding areas and enjoying the wood burner in the evenings, couldnt have wanted more! We will definitely be returning.
"Had such a lovely time here, would definitely recommend to family and friends and will be back ourselves."
Hosts were lovely. Enjoyed walking with the dogs and feeding the chickens.
"Sue and Dave Stone are perfect hosts."
Great location and very comfortable accommodation. Met by them and the dogs. Greeted every morning by their chickens who gave us our first breakfast. Lots of wildlife in the area, including Red Kites, Buzzards, Otter, Woodpeckers etc. Good pub close by. This was our second visit and we may go back again. Well Recommended
