“Beautiful cozy home in stunning Welsh countryside”
We recently stayed at The Haybarn and had a wonderful time. The house is really well kept and clean and suited to families. The house has a really lovely warm atmosphere to it and we especially loved coming back after our long walks to the log fire. There is a lot of space and it's great for kids as there are boardgames, table football and lots of other great things to keep them entertained. It was really well located to - we had a lovely time exploring the local area but it was also close enough to the shops if we'd missed anything. I would thoroughly recommend this house to anyone. We found that even though the weather wasn't amazing - it rained for a few days, but we had a lovely time just cooking in the kitchen, having a glass of wine and just enjoying the atmosphere. An amazing place to chill out with your family or a bunch of friends!
On arriving at the cottage up a road that is in terrible condition but just passable with extreme care, we arrived at the cottage. The exterior was just a foretaste of what was to come, crumbling steps and dirty windows, on stepping inside we were horrified. It was cold damp and dirty, the furniture was well worn tatty, carpets frayed and dirty and the wooden floor in the kitchen area needed a revamp. The kitchen itself was dirty and had not been cleaned for ages. The bedrooms downstairs were dirty and the duvets on the bed were damp and creased, The bathroom was in keeping with the rest of the house, we can do quirky but dirty and tatty we don't do. On the plus side I rang the owner from the property and told him it was unacceptable and that we would not be staying, he asked for photos which we sent him and he promised an immediate refund which we got. It would appear his housekeeper was not up to the job, the property however still needs a refurb. This almost ruined our family get together, we found another property around 25 miles away which was fantastic, thank you internet!
Owner's reply: We take all feedback seriously and agree that the heating should have been set beforehand to make the barn cosy. We are currently purchasing an internet controllable thermostat so that we can ensure this mistake does not happen again. We are also working with the neighbours to repair the track that suffered badly in the extreme rainfall and snow over the winter. Following your experience we have met with the grounds keeper about the items you identified and as always are looking to raise the standard of the barn for our guests. We are extremely sorry that the house was not to your taste. The kitchen area was revamped under 18 months ago and included resurfacing of the floors as well as the large range cooker and hood to serve large groups comfortably. We feel confident that the issues you experienced were superficial as we have had nothing but positive reviews since we started renting the property and a host of repeat bookings. Had we been given the chance to rectify these items upon your arrival, we are sure you would have had a wonderful stay.
fantastic place to stay and it's location was great for walking and visiting many lovely surrounding towns and beauty spots. The barn is well designed giving plenty of privacy with the bedrooms layout and a massive living area which the children loved. the fire was easy to use and most garages sold logs. There's plenty of cooking utensils and crockery etc. and having the child's gate fitted on the stairs was a great idea.
“Wonderfully relaxing and great for family holidays”
We did have a wonderful time at the Haybarn, it's a lovely place and my sister and I could have happily lived there!! It was a brilliant place for us all to get together and we had some fantastic days out from there. Everything we needed was there and it really felt like home from home. It's so important to us that our dog is also able to come on holidays with us and the gardens were perfect for him. We shall certainly be staying there again in the future and would happily recommend to our friends and other family who did not come this year!
“The house made the holiday!”
This house has real character and is the perfect place for a family getaway. The place was perfect for a group holiday with young kids. The house is spacious and full of character, yet has all the neccessary mod cons, including excellent cooking facilities and dining area. There was plenty of space in the house and garden for us to hang out together, or to have our own space. On top of this, the house is in a wonderful area with great views. There is some fantastic countryside and scenery nearby, whilst being close enough to the town of Welshpool for pubs, restaurants and supermarkets etc. This was a perfect little getaway, and we will be back in the future!
“Amazing house full of character, beautiful location.”
We loved the large open plan living space - kitchen, dining area and large sitting room with log burner - great for socialising as a group. The house is full of character, the beds were comfy, the large range cooker great for cooking for a big group of people. We loved the location next to a little stream and close to the woods and Offa's Dyke. The location felt secluded yet it is only a couple of miles from the town of Welshpool which has lots of amenities, shops, pubs and places to eat. Will definitely be back next year!
“Perfect snug for a country break”
We stayed here over the New Years break and had a fantastic time! The owner was extremely helpful and informative from the off, giving us extensive details about directions and all of the great little outings there are in the area, like Powis Castle (highly recommended). The Pentremill itself is wonderful. We all especially enjoyed the open plan first floor living room/dining area/kitchen, as it meant while we were doing different things (cooking, reading, stoking the fire), we were still all together. The log burner heats the place a treat and there's plenty of space to really kick back. Would definitely consider staying again in the future, perhaps when it's not so rainy!
“Fantastically spacious and quirky barn conversion.”
We stayed in December as part of a large extended family group and I can honestly say that it is a perfect property for such an occasion. The main open plan living space really lends itself to accomodating a large group for a family party however the main sitting area with wonderful log burner is still remarkably cosy and warm. All bedrooms are comfortable doubles apart from the bunk bedded room, perfect for the kids. The master bedroom is even spacious enough to house a small sofa. Whilst not luxurious The Haybarn has an extremely warm and welcoming feel perfect for relaxing following a day exploring the local area. We will certainly be looking to book again in the near future, thanks to the owners for a lovely break.
“a spacious and comfortable holiday home in a lovely environment”
We really enjoyed our stay in this interesting, spacious and comfortable converted barn. There was everything we needed to hand, with a well equipped kitchen and the house fully furnished. The owner was really keen for us to enjoy our stay, giving us detailed directions and covering every eventuality. We will definitely go again.
“Spacious, comfortable, kooky barn with amazing countryside walks”
I stayed with my extended family and we all had a great time and loved the house. The upstairs room is really large and has a gorgeous log burner which we didn't actually use as the weather was too warm (I will be going back in the cooler weather so look forward to a couple of cosy nights by the fire!). We all found the beds comfortable which was good because we spent most of our time walking in the mid wales countryside, so were shtetred by the end of each day. Lovely surrounding area with great walks straight from the front door. The house is a great mix of old and new with lots of unusual features, which might not be to everyone's taste, but I loved the fact that the house had such a unique personality. Thanks for a great place to stay!
