A solid oak staircase leads from the living quarters to the bedrooms upstairs. There is oak flooring upstairs with underfloor heating. All four bedrooms are beautifully appointed with comfortable beds, and 100% cotton bedlinen to set the scene for 5 Star indulgence. There are three kingsize beds which are zip-link so that they can change to twin beds to suit your requirements, and one double bed. There is one ensuite shower room beautifully decorated with marble tiles. The main bathroom has a bath with handheld shower.

Lying just outside of Marton, it is set in the shadow of Long Mountain, a hill to the East of Welshpool in Powys, Wales, crossing the national boundaries of England and Wales and the county boundaries of Powys and Shropshire.
So close to Offa's Dyke and surrounded by the many hills and valleys of the Welsh borders this is the perfect position from which to set out on daily idyllic walks or too as a base for setting further afield with Snowdonia less than an hour away. With little traffic passing Stonewood Barn you may instead wish to sit and ponder in the courtyard and garden areas where peaceful moments can be enjoyed.

The historical Long Mountain extends from Forden, Powys, in the southwest to Vennington near Westbury in Shropshire to the northeast and rises to a height of 408m at Beacon Ring, where there is a hill fort.It is sometimes considered to include the Breidden Hills to the north although the latter are separated from the Long Mountain's main body by a valley through which run a railway line and a major trunk road (the A458) connecting Welshpool with Shrewsbury.

Location description from owner

The England region

Go shopping in Welshpool, Newtown or Shrewsbury, ride the Welshpool to Llanfair light railway (one of the great little trains of Wales) or spend a day at the magnificent Powis Castle (which often welcomes Prince Charles as a summer guest). The Shropshire / Wales border location makes it ideal for trips to Mid Wales and the beaches of the Welsh coast.

The Shropshire / Wales border location makes it ideal for trips to Mid Wales and the beaches of the Welsh coast.

Welshpool has a long and colourful past. Walk the town's Heritage Trail and discover them for yourself. A unique blend of shops offer arts & crafts, fashion & leisure, fresh food & wine. Quality local produce reflects Welshpool's role as the centre of an agricultural community, promoting local crafts and items of a Welsh flavour.

For the more adventurous there is golf, fishing, walking, climbing and 'quad bike trekking' all within easy reach. Within reasonable driving distance is Bala Lake, with a whole range of watersports and a visit to the popular, bustling seaside resort of Aberdovey, and the magnificent beaches of the Mid Wales coast are only a 45-minute drive away.

The historic market town of Shrewsbury is only 19 miles away. The town has over 600 listed buildings including the Castle and the Abbey. Relax in beautiful Quarry Park or take a boat trip on the River Severn. The historic centre is a shopper's paradise packed with designer shops, smart new malls and an amazing range of independent retailers.

“Shropshire retreat”

Reviewed 24 Apr 2017

A great location for beautiful countryside and views, peace and quiet, and exploring the historic Welsh borderland. Idyllic walks in the Shropshire hills are all well within an hour's drive. Beautifully restored barn with excellent facilities.

“Beautiful house in a great location”

Reviewed 11 Apr 2016

Stonewood barn really is a stunning house finished to a very high standard. It is lovely and warm and cosy even in February. We stayed with friends and the house was plenty big enough for 8 of us. There are lovely walks from the property, with Offa's dyke very nearby. The owner, Sarah, was very helpful and kind. We would recommend this house to friends.

“Stunning, luxurious barn in a beautiful location”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2013

Three generations of our family, and the dog, stayed in Stonewood for a week for our annual family gathering (and Nan's 80th birthday), and we loved it. The roads to the barn are narrow, but the location is well worth it, with stunning views, in particular from one bedroom across the hills. The barn itself is well equipped with beautiful fittings, underfloor heating, washing machine, dish washer etc. This extends to the little things - the towels and bed linen were all really good quality, small toiletries were provided and Sarah left us a welcome basket of coffee, tea, chocolate and cookies. The towels were even replenished half way through the week, which is something we've not seen before. Sarah the owner was responsive and helpful prior to the booking, and on hand if we needed anything during our stay - she couldn't have made us feel more welcome. It was great that aside of the double room, the other three rooms could be set up as doubles or twin, and when zipped together, you couldn't tell the beds had two separate mattresses. The large kitchen/dining room has a seating area and makes the room really sociable, and suitable for a group of friends as well as family. The neighbours are also very friendly. The bed and breakfast next door have chickens and sell their eggs, so I'd highly recommend sourcing your breakfast eggs from them. Another benefit is that, when the gate is shut, the gardens are totally enclosed, so you can let the dog into the garden without worrying he'll escape. There's a utility room which you can use as a "holding area" for muddy dogs until they dry off. Overall we loved our stay, and can't recommend Stonewood Barn enough. Tips - The roads are steep left and right out of the barn, but there are walking routes that are less steep across the fields. There's a lane/track almost opposite the barn which leads down to a little river which is a good little walk (plus fun to wade in). A short walk right out of the house takes you to a small track on the right. The views across towards Shrewsbury are stunning, and worth the short steep trek. The Leighton Arms in Marton is really good for food. You'll need to book for sunday lunch but the food is worth it. Go hungry though as the portions are generous. Phone signal is patchy, but one of the neighbours broadcasts a BT WiFi Hotspot which you can access from the lounge end of the house. There are a couple of steps on the ground floor from the kitchen to the lounge. Welshpool nearby (about 5-10 mins drive) has a Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsburys. Shrewsbury is a lovely town, and definitely worth a visit.
