    Dan and Emily are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble. This was our third visit and we have already book to go back later this year and also next year. This really is a five star accommodation.

  • "Absolutely stunning property in idylic countryside."

    No expense spared by the owners in making this such a luxurious holiday home. Anyone visiting will find the owners most welcoming and extremely helpful should you need anything. I would rather this was a well kept secret but The Sheep Shed deserves to be experienced by fellow travellers !

  • "We have just enjoyed 7 wonderful days staying in The Sheep Shed, the reasons for which are many."

    However there is one that outshines all others and that is the hosts, Dan and Emily. Helpful, friendly, supportive, informative and attentive in the most understated but effective way we have ever exprienced. Their presentation of the Sheep Shed was beyond 5 stars, clean, bright, welcoming, comfortable, well supported by the fact that everything you could possibly need, let alone want was provided with a cocktail of subtlety and style. It created the most relaxing but also inspiring break we have ever enjoyed. The stunning scenery and vistas of the surrounding locale wasn't scruffy either! Thank you Dan and Emily for letting us share part of your world and for giving us a break above all others. Mike and Melanie

  • "Our time staying at The Sheep Shed was just lovely."

    The cabin itself is just stunning and decorated to a very high standard. It has everything you could possibly need for your stay. Dan and Emily have done an amazing job creating this haven and were very helpful during our stay. It is situated in the most spectacular scenery and such peaceful countryside, the only sound you can hear are sheep and birds! Which we loved. The added touch was the hot tub which was just lovely to use and take in the views of the green fields, sheep and birds of prey. I think we used the hot tub everyday, even in the rain! We would highly recommend staying here as it's truly beautiful and it will not disappoint. Thank you Dan and Emily for our lovely time here.

    The situation of the Sheep Shed in the surrounding countryside and the privacy and peace this brings is not often found. All home comforts were provided. Our hosts were the right balance of attentive, responsive and welcoming but good at leaving us to it unless they were needed. The surrounding area has much to offer for treats and for yet more stunning scenery. And, who knew sheep behaviour could be so fascinating...! A memorable trip for all the right reasons.

    Dan and Emily are wonderful and helpful hosts. The house is perfect fantastic views and very quiet location. The hot tub was a real bonus even in December and at this time of year watching the 1,000’s of starlings flying low overhead every afternoon at 4 pm was magical. My only comment a few more kitchen knives and garlic press for those who like to cook would be handy but not real issue. Will we back yes we will

The peace and quite and the views from the panoramic windows is a delight and for any stargazers then take your telescope because the clarity of the night sky is 100%. If you are interested in gardens then National Trust Powis Castle is a place to visit. For the more adventurous then the National White Water rafting center near Bala, a great cafe here perched on the edge where you can watch if you're not into getting into the action.

The property

Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant 3.3 miles.

This bespoke, high-end property rests in an idyllic position just a few miles outside of Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant, amidst the rolling countryside of Mid Wales.

The location is simply amazing; set down a private track on its own elevation, offering complete privacy.

As you step into the property, the spacious open-plan living area is sure to capture your attention, complete with vaulted ceiling and large sliding patio doors that offer superb views of the surrounding area.

Budding chefs can dust off those cooking books and impress in the kitchen, boasting a gloss white overtone with a range of integrated appliances, while the dining table is the perfect spot to enjoy family mealtimes.

If the underfloor heating wasn’t enough, the contemporary woodburner offers an additional level of warmth, accompanied with a Smart TV and plush sofas for a delightful night in.

Each bedroom is positioned within its own wing of the property; the master boasts that wow factor with a super-king-size and sliding patio doors for seamless access to the decking, plus a contemporary en-suite shower room for convenience.

The second bedroom rests at the other side of the conversion, offering a super-king-size bed with rural countryside vistas, a beautiful sight to wake up to each morning.

The excellence of The Sheep Shed continues to the exterior; the decking features outdoor furniture and an impressive hot tub - just what you’ll fancy after a day of rambling.

Alternatively, while away the hours as you rustle up something tasty on the barbecue while soaking up the Welsh sunshine.

From the door there are plenty of wonderful walks, including the stunning Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall, a breath-taking location standing at 240 feet high, it's an impressive landmark and Britain’s tallest single drop waterfall.

Those keen to get their steps in can explore the famous Offa’s Dyke Path, a 177 miles walking trail which loosely follows the England/Wales border, you can hop on it near Welshpool, or head to Oswestry and while you’re there you can discover the British Ironwork Centre, Old Oswestry Hill Fort, and the Park Hall Countryside Experience.

If watersports are your passion, sailing and fishing can be enjoyed at Lakes Vyrnwy and Bala, or hop on a steam train at the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway and marvel at the countryside from a different perspective.

With all this, along with Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park in easy reach, a holiday at The Sheep Shed ticks all the boxes.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
