These two delightful barn conversions are adjacent to the owners home and overlook the peaceful rolling countryside of rural mid Wales. The Owl House (ref UK6485) sleeps 12 and is a sympathetically restored oak-framed stone barn. The full length windows in the kitchen/dining room overlook a pretty decked area outside complete with barbecue. With steps throughout the ground floor, the upstairs living room is accessed by a stunning spiral staircase. Tawny Barn (ref UK6486) is another cosy barn conversion sleeping 3 people.
There are walks from the door, and it is only a short distance by car to the pretty town of Llanfyllin, which is well worth exploring. In the other direction is Lake Vyrnwy and its famous Victorian dam. Take a stroll along the lakes shore or hire a bike and explore one of the cycle tracks. Beyond Lake Vyrnwy you can take the mountain road through Cwm Hirnant over to Bala. The nearby town of Welshpool is also well worth a visit, with its canal and famous Powys Castle, National Trust, which has many acres of grounds to explore, together with the house. The Welshpool and Llanfair Railway runs from Welshpool, with steam trains meandering along the valley to the small town of Llanfair Caereinon, and provides a delightful and unhurried way of seeing the surrounding countryside. There are the British Iron Works, the National Cycling Museum and Offa’s Dyke all under 30 minutes from the property. The Llanrhaeder Waterfall is also well worth a visit. For the more adventurous, you can find white water rafting, karting, canoeing and pony trekking within an hour, and further afield are Zip World, Bounce Below, Tree Top adventure and Go Below. Beach 40 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
The Owl House can be booked together with Tawny Barn (ref UK6486) to accommodate up to 15 guests.

About the local area

This being frontier country, there are plenty of historic sites, fortresses and castles which remind us of the area’s turbulent past. Thankfully now all is peaceful, allowing the visitor to immerse themselves in centuries of history; from Wales’s largest prehistoric monument, Gop Cairn, to the 700 year old intact magnificence of Chirk Castle.
Wrexham to the north enjoys a very privileged location. Within twenty minutes travel you can lose yourself in the Welsh hills, be fascinated by the Roman remains in Chester or view the rich historical past within Wrexham. A short drive from Wrexham town centre you can find and enjoy a number of historical sites which remind us of the local way of life over hundreds of years. Add to this excellent road links to North Wales, the North West and beyond and you can understand why Wrexham is a very popular place to visit and stay.
Located between the River Dee and the Berwyn Mountains is Llangollen, a picturesque, bustling market town. Famous for the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod held in July each year, visitors come from world wide to spectate and compete in poetry, dance and music competitions.
Further south is the town of Welshpool. This area has an endless range of things to do and places to see. From walking trails, wildlife, fishing and golf to historic sites, beautiful villages and stunning scenery. Nearby is the town of Montgomery where you can visit the historic castle of the same name or enjoy the countryside along the Montgomery Canal.
