Hafod and Ty Nant Barns are luxury self catering barns and are normally booked together for groups up to 30. Hafod has large dining and living spaces where everyone from both barns can socialise and eat together.

Hafod has been decorated in a cool modern style, with solar assisted underfloor heating and big windows opening on to the slate terrace and garden. In contrast, Ty Nant has a homely farmhouse atmosphere with an Aga, big oak table and a traditional fireplace. There are terraces to the front and rear of both barns, and an enclosed safe place for toddlers to play. Lots of playing space inside too!

There is an outdoor dining shelter with big gas BBQ - eat al fresco whatever the weather! There is a well equipped gym and sauna.

Catering can usually be arranged if required.

Further details outdoors

Garth Barns are part of Garth Farm, 240 acres of hill, fields, woodland and dingle with wildlife pools and spectacular views. Excellent walking country. The Farm Trail winds a path through woodland and open country. Good birdwatching. Owls, woodpeckers, buzzards, nuthatches, woodcock and redstarts are resident and ducks and swans are regular visitors.

In the field 300 metres from the barns there is a small lake with two little boats - a beautiful spot to spend the afternoon. The lake swimming is fantastic and there is jetty for diving from. There are 2 little rowing boats for guests and we have added 2 canadian canoes for 2014.

The Camp Fire in the orchard is a real hit with guests.

The Garth Barns Treasure Hunt was very popular with guests during 2013. This may be adapted to suit to your event.

The Powys/Brecon Beacons region

Mid Wales is one of the UK's best kept secrets. Glorious countryside, beautiful beaches, small market towns, quiet roads and friendly people. A scenic and lovely part of Wales, the area around the Barns offers a landscape of rolling hills, forests and mountain ranges.

Easy to reach, Llanidloes is a million miles away from the stress of modern life. Make yourself at home and relax in some of the most unspoilt and undiscovered countryside the UK has to offer. Llanidloes is an exceptionally friendly town with cafes, pubs and interesting small shops. There is a Leisure Centre with squash courts, swimming pool, tennis, table tennis, basketball and a good range of classes and activities.

The Clywedog Lake, a beautiful 600 acre upland reservoir, is home to the local angling and sailing clubs. The walks and scenery are exceptional.

Garth Barns are set in glorious countryside and some of the best waking country is on your doorstep. From a 45min Farm Trail to a 25 mile circular walk taking in the Hafren Forest and source of the River Severn, and lots in between!

There is fishing, sailing, abseiling, canoeing, mountain biking, off road motorcycling and clay pigeon shooting, all within a few miles of Garth Barns.

Beautiful beaches, the Centre for Alternative Technology, Powis Castle and Gardens are less than an hour away.

"Spacious accommodation, spectacular location, what more do you need!"

For my husbands 60th birthday we anxiously read the reviews worrying that it would meet our needs - from new born to 60! We were truly amazed at the attention to detail for the property. There was space for partying, tranquility, games and action all in well thought out accommodation. Clean, spacious, comfortable with ample room for parking yet no traffic so under 5's were safe. The boats on the lake were a big hit along with the table tennis and pool table. The barbecue and the campfire added to the fun. We enjoyed the small town of Llandiloes which was within walking distance and it had a quaint Saturday market. We had a fantastic weekend and would recommend Garth Barns to young and old alike.

"Perfect accommodation in a great setting"

I was looking for a venue for a slightly older stag weekend, it needed to sleep 21 of us in comfort, a very large and capable kitchen dining room, easy parking for a number of cars and a layout that drew us all together. The two barns are set in a great position at the head of a small valley, the sun pours onto one terrace in the morning, and they keep the light all day. They are beautifully converted, with great attention to detail and quality, and the list of 'proper extras' really set this rental apart from others. So often extras are there but either not fully working, or the table tennis table is buried under piles of rubbish in an outhouse! The sauna was great and easy to use, there was unlimited dry firewood for the stove, the table tennis table was in a very well lit and central location, as was the pool table. The kitchen and its equipment were of good quality, and worked well for our large post mountain biking feast, and cooked breakfasts. Showers all worked perfectly with plenty of hot water. Lots of planning has gone into the layout of these two barns and it made such a difference to the dynamics of our large group.
Veronica Hollis, the owner, was very easy to communicate with before we arrived, and when we did she was very welcoming, and explained everything we needed to know.
We all felt it was a great place for a few families to get together for a holiday, and would recommend the barns to anyone.
