This beautiful converted cider barn is full of character and lies in the picturesque Welsh Marches. The accommodation is decorated with a comfortable, vintage country style with modern facilities. Original beams and a welcoming multi-fuel burner add to its charm and appeal, and a basket of logs will be waiting for you to cuddle up in the warmth. The cosy bedroom is in the eaves of the barn, with oak beams and a small fireplace. A welcome basket and dressing gowns are provided for your stay but please contact the owner, in advance, for any additional extras which may be required on arrival, especially for those truly special occasions.
The Cider Barn is set on the owners’ small holding with rare breed Balwen Welsh Mountain sheep. Chickens and guinea fowl can be seen roaming the fields and garden and visitors are welcome to feed the pet sheep, friendly chickens and guinea fowl, as well as meet the new born lambs expected in the spring time. The barn has a small garden area with seating and a BBQ and you can share the garden with the nosy guinea fowl, if you wish.
The Cider Barn has numerous nearby walks and riding stables within the beautiful surrounding countryside. Visitors can enjoy the slower pace of life and potter round the old villages and towns. The barn is well placed for the small town of Presteigne, 2 miles away, which holds many events throughout the year and is the first town when you cross the border into Wales, with its pubs, restaurants, takeaways, museum and antique shops. The award-winning Stag Inn (Dining pub of the year in 2018 Good Pub guide) is 2½ miles away in Kington. Leominster is a small market town and offers vintage/bric-and-brac and antique shops a-plenty, just 10 miles away. Ludlow and Hereford are about 40 minutes away by car. There are many other attractions such as the Chase distillery, Monkland Cheese, cider makers, museums, farm shops and markets, all within the locality. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

About the local area

For those who really want to escape it all then mid Wales is the place to go. Because of the vast mountain ranges in this area much of it is uninhabitable. However this does not stop it from being a beautiful place to visit.

The Cambrian Mountain range dominates and because it is often over looked due to the Snowdonian and Brecon Beacon ranges it is a secret just waiting to be discovered. Fish in one of the many reservoirs and rivers or bike up some of the challenging trails across the range.

Further to the east the towns of Builth Wells and Llandrindod Wells both provide amenities for your day in the mountains. From here you can also travel to the Black Mountains in the South East or visit the neighbouring English border
