  • "The owner (Eileen) is on site at the nearby farmhouse and is one of the warmest, most caring and helpful people you could ever meet."

    The property is furnished and finished to a very high standard with loads of nice touches, the cottage was spotless when we arrived. There was some homemade Bara Brith waiting for us, along with milk and eggs. A beautiful peaceful location with open countryside views, with shops and amenities only a short drive away, this place is ideally situated for exploring the Mid Wales.

    Our accommodation was so comfortable, lovely seating out back and front to enjoy the countryside, sunsets and sunshine. Inside had all you needed.

  • "An absolutely immaculate property with just about all of the facilities you could wish for in a holiday cottage."

    The owner is on site at the nearby farmhouse and is one of the warmest, most caring and helpful people you could ever meet. If you were to have a problem, she is on the other end of a phone. The property is finished and furnished to a very high standard and was spotless when we arrived. There was even some of Eileen's gorgeous bara brith waiting for us, along with milk and eggs. Parking is right outside the front door. We had a very relaxing and comfortable four nights here and will certainly return. The sooner the better! Jeff and Carol The Stables is situated amongst beautiful scenery and is handy for many picturesque towns and villages.

    A beautiful peaceful location with open countryside views and yet shops and amenities only a short drive away, this place is ideally situated for exploring the Wesh border. We can honestly say that we wanted for nothing, the property is very well equipped, it was warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean and very well maintained to high standard throughout. Eileen made us feel very welcome and her Bara Brith was delicious too.

    Everything was immaculate! We barely left the cottage it was absolutely stunning! The Bara Brith was stunning! The bed is super comfy, plus bunk beds proved a hit with our son, who used both of them during his stay! we have absolutely no complaints, the shower could do with a bit more pressure but you can't have everything, superb stay, and can't wait to come again!

    The Stables provided a well equipped, warm comfortable base from which we explored beautiful mid Wales. The conversion from dilapidated farm buildings to stylish holiday accommodation has been very well done both inside and out making the most of stunning views and sunsets. Very likely to return.

  • "If you fancy a real get-away break, surrounded by seemingly endless rolling countryside, with a touch luxury, then look no further."

    My Wife and I were amazed at the high quality of the cottage yet it still retains a wonderful homely feel, full of rustic charm. The only thing that I could think of as a negative is how utterly sad I felt when our holiday came to an end and we had to go home! Excellent host, no intrusion whatsoever but there if you require anything. Home made cake on arrival was another unexpected delight too. Highest possible recommendations from us in every aspect.

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, 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.
