  • "We absolutely loved our stay at the Loft and would happily book again."

    The main room is really spacious, with everything that you need to be comfortable on holiday. The bedroom is very small but perfectly fine for 2 small children (or one older child or adult) and really cosy. Our boys are 5 and 2 - the younger one slept in a travel cot which just about fitted in the bedroom alongside the bed. Di, who runs the farm, was extremely welcoming and friendly. We all enjoyed "helping" to feed the animals (pigs, sheep, ponies, chickens, goats) many mornings and evenings. Remember to take wellies! Di has 5 lovely dogs. Our boys began the holiday quite wary of the dogs as some of them are very large and bark a fair amount! However, by the end of the holiday both boys really loved the dogs and had gained so much confidence around them. There are some great places to visit from the Loft, but you need to be prepared to drive for at least 30 minutes to most of them. Our favourite place was the Elan Valley, about a 45 minute drive away. Thank you Di for a wonderful, unique holiday!

    Thank you for coming, so glad you all enjoyed it. Property Owner

  • "What a lovely little hideaway in the middle of some of the most spectacular surroundings the UK has to offer."

    We have already recommended this place to our friends and we hope to return. Not just value for money but a truly unforgettable time. No WiFi or phone signal was utterly blissful! Our little boy was welcomed onto the farm to help with feeding the animals and he loved it! Our host was warm and friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thankyou

    Thank you Martin, it was a pleasure having you and your family. Hope to see you again. Property Owner

  • "The accommodation had everything you need, there was a table with 4 chairs with a full kitchen , oven , microwave, fridge freezer ,crockery, cutlery, utensils , tea towels , hand wash , washing up liquid."

    Bathroom was nice with all towels provided plus some handwash . The whole room you get is spacious . In the big room there is a small sofa , large double bed , Freeview TV , a dvd player with quite a few dvds provided by the owner . Couldn't fault anything about the stay I went with my two boys aged 5 and 7. They absolutely loved everything about there stay, the owner , Di , was lovely and my boys loved helping out with feeding the animals morning and night. This is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life and get back to what humans should do and be with nature .

    Thank you Michael, it was lovely to meet you and the boys. Look forward to seeing you all again. Property Owner

The property

Knighton 8.4 miles.

Tucked away in the countryside and off the beaten track is this rustic, first-floor apartment, The Loft, in Llanbister Road near Knighton.

A lovely bolthole on a working farm for exploring Mid Wales and Shropshire, this dog-friendly accommodation is ideal for romantic breaks or young families who love the outdoors.

You'll find an off-road parking space on arrival, set in a small enclosed garden area with a picnic bench, where you can savour your morning coffee whilst admiring the rural views.

The apartment is set on the first floor of a former dairy.

Climb the 13 steps to find yourself among the eaves in a lovingly refurbished space with Velux windows framing idyllic views.

You can prepare basic meals in the kitchen/diner, complete with a gas oven and hob, microwave, and fridge/freezer, along with a table seating four guests.

The double bedroom has a sitting area for all guests to relax on the sofa by the warmth of the impressive woodburning stove with a farmyard scene engraving, whilst watching the TV.

An ideal space for young children, the second bedroom has a 2'4 single bed with a truckle, and access to the bathroom.

Here you can freshen up after long walks with a hot bath or rinse off using the hand held shower.

A wonderful base for avid walkers and explorers, The Loft is a peaceful location with acres of common land and local footpaths to explore; close by, you'll find The Greyhound Inn for well-earned drinks.

The market town of Knighton is a short drive away where you can stock up at the local convenience store, dine at the traditional pub of Horse & Jockey, or plan a day at Offa's Dyke Centre to embark on the scenic Offa's Dyke Path.

Glyndwr's Way is another lovely route to wander and escape the hustle and bustle, whilst the breath-taking Elan Valley is a little further afield.

Venture into the Shropshire Hills AONB, known for its charming villages and waterways, including the small town of Clun; explore the ruins of Clun Castle, local history at Clun Town Trust Museum, and the Clunton Coppice Nature Reserve.

Presteigne is also nearby, whilst over the Welsh border you'll find Ludlow, home to the fascinating Ludlow Castle which often hosts markets, fayres and concerts.

Make The Loft your rustic, homely base on your next rural retreat.
