  • "A spotless and well equipped property in a very quiet rural location but only a few miles from local facilities."

    Eileen is a wonderful host - on hand if needed but otherwise unobtrusive. Provided with a lovely welcome pack of essentials plus a yummy home baked bara brith. Althogether an excellent place to stay for a restful week.

    Beautiful countryside, quiet, cosy and well presented, we had a lovely holiday and would definitely visit again. Eileen was a wonderful host and went above and beyond to help us, plus the homemade bara brith was delicious. Highly recommend!

  • "The host Eileen met us on our arrival and is very welcoming and friendly."

    The property is part of three properties formed from an old barn. It is superb condition and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. It is up a short track, off the access road at the top of a hill with beautiful views all around especially over to the west. There is plenty of parking with garden seating areas at the front to watch the sun set, or BBQ at the rear. It is such a lovely peaceful place to stay. We stayed a week and enjoyed exploring the hills and mountains in the area. We would love to return some time in the not too distant future.

    It is very well equipped with everything you need and more. It is located in a most scenic area of Mid Wales. The owner, Eileen, makes you feel at ease from the start and provides a very good welcoming pack, including a scrumptous home baked cake, which was much appreciated and enjoyed. I enjoyed a most restful and peaceful stay.

  • "Eileen was very friendly and welcoming, and ensured that the cottage was comfortable and very clean for our arrival, with lots of little details such as milk, eggs, biscuits, tea, coffee and sugar in the kitchen, and robes to snuggle up in, in the bedroom."

    There were lots of other thoughtful touches, such as a velour blanket in the lounge, which was great; I arrived at The Granary full of a cold and the first thing I wanted to do was relax on the reclining sofa and wrap myself up in the blanket! Thankfully the next day I felt a bit better and we started exploring some of the beautiful Mid Wales countryside, hills and coast. Even the weather was perfect for our 3 day break; having climbed Cadair Idris, visited Dolgellau, and been fascinated by the Centre for Alternative Technology, we strolled along Aberdovey beach and watched the fabulous sunset, wishing we could stay a bit longer. The views across the valley from the cottages are just lovely, and we were delighted to see red kites take off from one of the nearby fields, and hear owls hooting in the distance at night. Having had a lovely meal at the Goat Hotel (I recommend booking in advance!) in nearby Llanfair we ended a memorable evening standing in the back garden of The Granary watching a shooting star in a beautiful starry sky (very little light pollution!). We would definitely recommend staying at either the Granary, or Eileen's adjacent cottage The Stables, which is a little larger, and I am sure it would be just as perfect. We will definitely return!

About the location


Welshpool 8 miles.

The town of Llanfair Caereinion is built upon the site of an old Roman fort, in the valley of the River Banwy. It is a thriving town built around The Church of St Mary, with a Post Office, two supermarkets, a butcher with local meats and a selection of three different pubs. The annual Llanfair Caereinion Carnival is very popular with locals, and proceeds through the town with a full parade of floats and dancing troupes, providing a Rio carnival atmosphere. There is a river walk along the banks of the Banwy leading to an Arboretum, containing over 25 different species of British trees, an ideal place to explore before stepping back in time and jumping on the start of the narrow gauge heritage steam railway that runs 8.5 miles west to Welshpool. Welshpool nestles into the upper reaches of the picturesque Severn Valley near the border between Wales and England. This bustling market town is surrounded by rolling hills and glorious unspoilt countryside. There's a unique blend of shops offering arts & crafts, fashion & leisure, fresh produce, and quality pubs and restaurants, as well as the town centre’s restored cock fighting pit and interesting Heritage Trail. Visit the famous 13th Century Powis Castle, and the renowned Dingle Gardens. Enjoy a cruise in the summer sun along the Montgomery Canal or glorious walks and bike rides along National walking trails and the Offa’s Dyke Pathway.
