The accommodation at the Barn is excellent. It is well fitted out and ideal for a quiet, relaxing holiday. Their are plenty of walks directly from the property so there is no need to drive. As you are approximately one and a half miles from the nearest road it is perfectly safe for animals and small children.
My only criticism is that the track down to the property is in urgent need of some TLC.

Chosen because my wife would like to live in a barn, The Barn exceeded our expecations by a long way. Imaginatively converted and beautifully furnished the accommodation is well above par. The owners made sure that we were comforatable and offered help should we need it. I must mention the single track road that is access from the a481. Not for the faint hearted. Nor is the final track into the property that needs to be driven with care. That said, the effort is well worthwhile to enjoy a beautiful location.
Sadly we visited before summer arrived in 2013 and we had more than our share of rainfall. However that did not stop us getting out and about and we even enjoyed a walk alongside the river Wye on Sunday afternoon in the rain! Every day it was a pleasure to return to the warmth and comfort of The Barn.
Had we have been much younger and fitter we would have enjoyed the hill walking opportunities surrounding The Barn.
All in all a good time was had by all. Next visit we hope to find the sunshine! Very happy to add our recommendation.
