The Powys/Brecon Beacons region
The Powys borders run along side the spectacular Dyke which King Offa ordered to be constructed in the 8th century, probably to divide his Kingdom of Mercia from rival kingdoms in what is now Wales. The Trail explores the tranquil Marches (as the border region is known) and passes through the Brecon Beacons National Park on the spectacular Hatterall Ridge. In addition it links no less than three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty – the Wye Valley, the Shropshire Hills and the Clwydian Hills.
1. Welshpool & Oswestry – about 15 – 20 minutes by car. Has a good range of supermarkets ( Tesco,Sainsburys, Morrisons, Somerfields, Iceland), all your high street favourites – Boots, WHSmith, plenty of cafes and coffee shops, and some specialist shops.
2. The nearby Medieval town of Shrewsbury and city Chester offering excellent shopping,cinemas and a racing course. www.visitchester.com or www.visitshrewsbury.com
1. Lake Vyrnwy
We are approximately 25min drive to the spectacular Lake Vyrnwy which lies south of the Snowdonia national park. It has a stone built dam constructed in 1880’s and is the first of its kind in the world. The small village of Llawddyn was flooded to create the Lake. There is a nature reserve that is of special scientific interest and a special protection area.
The RSPB has hides around the lake where rare species of bird such as the Siskin, Wood warbler, Redstart, Pied flycatcher and the Peregrine falcon are known to breeding. As well as all this there are the most amazing walks for you to explore the surrounding landscape. There is a small shop and café for refreshment after your expedition at the lake, they also offer cycle hire with a water sports centre for canoeing and sailing enthusiasts.
2. Llanrhader & Pistyll Rhader falls
Le-Gro barns are close to the village of Llanrhader with the magnificent Pistyll Rhader water Falls. The village was used in the film “The Englishman who went up a hill but came down a mountain” starring Hugh Grant, Tara Fitzgerald and Colm Meaney. Some of the locals also stared in the film and if you are lucky you might spot them.
3. Castles and Manors:
We are very fortunate to have many splendid castles and stately homes within easy driving distance. There is Powys Castle in Welshpool where Prince Charles used to stay when he is visiting the area. It has fabulous gardens and grounds, well worth a visit. In the opposite direction and closer to Oswestry there is Chirk castle. For a great day out in Shropshire there is Stokesay castle and Ludlow castle along with the smaller Clun and Whittington castles.
There are many fabulous stately homes such as Erddig at Wrexham and Attingham Park and Stokesay Court in Shropshire that the whole family can enjoy. Many of these are National Trust or English Heritage properties.
4. Offas Dyke and other country walks
(Welsh: Clawdd Offa) is a massive linear earthwork, roughly following some of the current border between England and Wales and is 177miles long.It was created by the AngloSaxon king, King Offa who ruled the kingdom of Mercia from 757 to 796. In the 8th century it formed some kind of delineation between the Anglian kingdom of Mercia and the Welsh kingdom of Powys.
Offas Dyke passes over Llanymynech hill which can be accessed form the barns on foot or by car. The network of public footpaths lead on to Llyncls common nature reserve providing an excellent walk with spectacular views over the Shropshire / Powys borders. There is also the Heritage centre and Llanymynech offering lovely walks along the Montgomery canal. In the neighbouring villages there are may walks and nature reserves maintained by Shropshire Wildlife Trust. Oswestry has an Old Race Course which is a great place to walk and the views across the Shropshire plains are spectacular.
5. Chester Races
For a day out with a difference there is always Chester races. They begin in May and finish in September. They are a wonderful excuse to dress up and spoil yourself. With all your winnings you could go and treat yourselves to a sumptuous meal at one of the may restaurants Chester has to offer. For more information on races
There are many other places of interest to visit that are close and an easy car drive away with such as Llangollen canal and the Pontcysylle Aqueduct. The Iron Bridge Gorge Museum that was part of the beginning of the industrial revolution in the 1700’s is a fascinating day out. The Severn Valley Railway, Wroxeter Roman city. You can even experience Victorian living at Blist Hill town.

"Fantastic place, friendly landlords"
Both cottages at the Barns are very nice and well looked after. We rented the top and lower cottages as we were a group of 12. We were all amazed by the place. We thank the landlord Philip as he was very accommodating and kindly agreed to put the table of the top kitchen downstairs so we could eat together. Also grateful that there was no problem to rent only for a bank holiday week-end and pay the week-end rate (not always the case for other holiday rentals where landlords try to charge you for a week).
Place is well located, not too far from the English border (easy to get to) and beautiful walks within 30-40mins drive.
Thank you for your kind feed back. It is always comforting to us when our guests appreciate our property, the beautiful location and our efforts to accommodate them.

"High quality accomodation in a beautiful setting within easy reach of many interesting places to visit."
We stayed over the Christmas week, my dad, sister and nephews in the downstairs apartment and myself, my husband and our 18 month old daughter in the upstairs one. Although we all spent most of our time either out or downstairs, it was good to have a separate upstairs living area so that we could retreat with our daughter at bedtime and keep somewhat to her routine. The accomodation is off a very high standard and the grounds lovely. The river is a only a few hundreds yards away and we woke to sheep directly outside our windows every morning. Although the owners property is within sight, we hardly saw them and did not feel at all 'watched over', in fact we only saw them at a distance to wave to but they made to clear to contact them at any time should we need to (we didn't need to). There is a small village close by with a few pubs shops at restaurants....the Indian take away was delicious), nearby towns include Oswestry and Shrewsbury, the latter in particular is definitely worth a visit. If you fancy driving further a field there are many really interesting attractions to visit. Would definite recommend it.
We are really pleased that you enjoyed your Christmas with us. Thank you for you positive feed back. Many people like yourselves staying in group feel that it is an advantage to have the two separate lounges so we are delighted you benefited from this. We are pleased that you managed to visit many of the fabulous place of interest that we have on our door step.

"Fabulous Stay at Le Gro"
Had a wonderful Weekend at Le gro with family,The accommodation was first class,and
Beautiful setting in countryside.But only short drive into Shrewsbury,which is also lovely,
Also had barbeque one evening, which were provided . Lots of very interesting places around but we were only there for short break, wish it could have been longer.
Hosts were lovely, everything you could wish for. I loved watching the birds,and even saw a fox in distant early one morning. but I also loved the quiet in the late evening FAB
Thank you for your kind feed back, we are really pleased that you and your family had a happy and memorable stay with us and look forward to helping you have another joyful family get together next time.

"Best accommodation ever, would definately revisit!"
My daughter stumbled across this beautiful accommodation, and we thought that we would never have a chance because it looked too expensive. After looking at the prices, it was amazing how good the price was! Once it was booked, we were all raring to go, and when we arrived it was beyond our expectations. Greeted by lovely owners Tracy and Phil, a gorgeous friendly dog called buster, and the kids:) The accommodation was absolutely outstanding!! And the location was perfect! Best place ever! Definitely revisiting!
Thank you for your positive review. We are delighted that you had such a great stay with us and enjoyed the property, were certainly enjoyed having you all stay and really hope to see you all again soon.

"Beautiful accommodation in a beautiful setting, with a welcoming host"
Stumbled across this property on the web while looking for somewhere to stay over an extended weekend while attending a relative's birthday party in nearby Trefonen. Philip Barre dealt with our reservation and payment courteously and efficiently and met us on arrival, though we were later than intended.
The properties (we booked upstairs and downstairs) were beautifully converted and furnished to a high standard. We settled in with a fire burning in the wood-burning stove (thankfully for Mr. Barre, this is not a review of the weather!) next morning however, the sun was shining, the river was flowing past the end of the garden and we were ready to enjoy our weekend in this very beautiful Border country.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for your kind an positive comments regarding the accommodation and the service we provide. Hope to see you in the future.
