We strongly recommend buying any meat you need from this local butcher. The food just has that much more taste than something from the supermarket.

"Lots of light and space inside, surrounded by peace and countryside beyond."

Celebrated our Ruby Wedding week here with 7 adults, a teenager, a 2 year-old and 3 dogs. Loads of space to gather in - or disperse to. Full-length windows fold to give level access to patio and lawn, secure for children and dogs. Integral espresso machine! Ice-maker was too difficult to work out! But, be aware, narrow lanes inhabited by mad postie van! Worth the trips to dine at Seeds Restaurant in Llanfyllin, to picnic and waterfall-wander at Lake Vrynwy, to golf at Welshpool GC on top of the world, and to explore the gardens at Powis Castle which beat anything we've ever seen. Of course, the weather was mostly brilliant, which helps, but the Old Granary has games and books aplenty - and lots of space to find your own play area inside when the rain falls. Stunning!

Absolutely beautiful property which boasts stunning views. Plenty of parking and enough space inside for 10 people to be comfortable. This house was clean beyond clean and very well equipped! If charm, character, location and peace is what you are after then this is the place for you!

A great place for a family gets away or for a group of friends looking for a base. I would definitely book again.

Communication with owner is easy and he always responds in timely manner.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay

"A fantastic stay at The Old Granary"

There were 9 of us staying at this lovely property and there was more than enough room for all of us. It was great to have the teenagers sleeping downstairs with the younger children baby and adults upstairs. We could all sit round the table to eat and all sit in a comfy seat to watch TV or the sun set in the evenings. The bathrooms are to die for and the beds are so comfy I slept like a baby. A lovely setting we had a fantastic time and would recommend A stay here to any large groups who don't want to be cramped. This place has everything you need for a fantastic stay

we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the lovely review
