Tasteful, cosy, peaceful, clean, a gem of a place.
Just seven nights and days did not seem long enough in this wonderful accommodation set amongst the lovely rolling hills of Powys. The barn had everything we could have needed during our stay and all was very well maintained. We had excellent communication with the owners throughout our build up to our holiday and all instructions were clear and coherent. We were blessed with sunny days throughout our stay- excellent cycling weather- and even when the evenings did seem cooler, the barn was gorgeously warm. We would thoroughly recommend a break here to recharge the batteries and would love to return.
Beautiful barn in rural setting
Owners should be very proud of the care and attention they have put into this conversion. Barn is well appointed and myself and my family have just spent a very relaxing week there. Communication off the owner was greatly appreciated, especially the message on the morning of our departure to warn us of a weather change and to pack warm clothing and umbrellas.
Beautiful, comfortable and clean holiday home in an idyllic setting
Great accommodation - made the perfect base for our long weekend away. Very clean and well-equipped (only things we would have liked more of were large mugs and teaspoons!) Efficient and friendly communication with the owners. Beautiful setting in Welsh countryside with sheep in fields around. Loved it and will likely be back again!
Excellent property in peaceful location
Thoroughly enjoyed our week stay in Orchard Barn. A very well equipped and superbly maintained property. Enjoyed the peace and quiet that Orchard barn provides. A great base for visiting numerous family attractions, all within an hours drive. Within 30 minutes of the nearest park and ride for Royal Welsh Show.
