  • “Was a wonderful house with wonderful owners, Mr jones and Ryan went above and beyond with anything we needed help with.”

    Very friendly people! We don't get to have many hoildays so it's so important everything is prefect when we do and especially with having two babies as well and I can honestly say we had a wonderful experience. The only feedback I would suggest is to change the steps that lead into the pool for those that are mobility restricted, would be better to have steps that lead into the pool gradually rather then the metal step that go straight down. Thank you Sykes cottages and Mr Jones for a wonderful ...

The property

A beautifully-presented, detached barn conversion situated in the grounds of the owner’s home, in a tranquil setting in the rural hamlet of Aberhafesp.

With luxury upside down accommodation designed to take advantage of the wonderful view stretching across the Severn Valley, along with impressive features including a large pool and a hot tub, this cottage offers exclusive accommodation for a special getaway with friends and family.

This contemporary cottage offers a unique holiday base, with two identical accommodation areas incorporating living areas, bedrooms and bathrooms, separated by an inter-connecting door, creating wonderfully flexible accommodation, perfect for two groups wishing to enjoy a holiday together but still retreat to their own space at the end of each day.

There are six bedrooms set on the ground floor, two benefiting from en-suites and French doors opening out to the garden, as well as two quality family bathrooms.

The two kitchens, with dining areas and comfy seating, are extremely well equipped, whilst the charming sitting rooms are each complete with a woodburner, which you can nestle beside after an evening’s peaceful soak in the hot tub under the wide starry sky.

The spacious south-facing garden also offers a pretty patio area, perfect for dining alfresco after a refreshing morning swim in the large pool, which is housed in a separate building just a few seconds’ stroll from the property.

The whole area surrounding this beautiful cottage in Wales is a wonderland for adventure, with walking, cycling, fishing, clay pigeon shooting and quad biking opportunities within very easy reach.

Discover the romantic ruins of the ancient Motte-and-Bailey castles situated in the nearby old county town of Montgomery, and in the hills set above the village of Abermule.

Visit grand Powis Castle and Gardens, the delightful medieval town of Ludlow in nearby Shropshire, or the attractive coastal village of Aberdovey on the stunning Cardigan Bay Coast, a paradise for watersports enthusiasts.

This excellent cottage provides a rare opportunity for groups to spend quality time together and still appreciate some private moments after exciting days enjoying the superb on-site facilities and stunning surrounding area.
