Builth Wells

The barn is located about half a mile from the peaceful village of Rhulen in Edw valley. Rhulen consists of six cottages and its well know 13th century church of St David which is thought to be one of the earliest churches built in Radnorshire.

Rhulen is a small hamlet nestling in the rolling hills of Radnorshire countryside. Golf and fishing nearby and glorious walks from the doorstep. The Immediate area is full of attractive walks and footpaths with excellent public access, that cross heather and grouse moors and ancient drover's roads. You may even stumble across a heard or two of wild ponies.

The winding lanes around Rhulen are delightful for driving and cycling.

"Great spacious secluded converted barn."

We spent a lovely 5 days at Cwmpiban Barn over the Easter break. We were 2 families of four with children aged 10,9,8 and 7 and there was more than enough room for us all. Our boys loved being able to roam the fields surrounding the barn and we really felty like we were getting away from it all. Everything we needed was at the cottage and we got a very warm welcome from the owner who was very laid back. A car is essential though and the nearest shops are a good 20 minute drive away. There is lots of walks starting from the barn and we did a very enjoyable walk to a friendly pub in Aberedw (about 5 miles away). We will return to Cwmpiban Barn and would absolutely recommend it if you are happy to stay out in the coutryside away from it all!
