Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Sophies Barn was delightful! Better than expected (photos do not do it justice!) Very beautiful location, quiet and perfect for a peaceful getaway! Very nice owners too! We would like to return in better weather to appreciate all the countryside more! Dec 2012.
  2. This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. A relaxing break. The owners live in the house next to the cottage but left us to it and welcomed the children who even went for a ride in the land rover to feed the lambs. June 2012.
  3. 2nd visit to Sophies Barn, fantastic again. Lambing time when we went and so nice to see the lambs with their mums. The barn is clean and has everything in iy that’s needed and the log burner is wonderful. Views to die for, amaxing... March 2012.
  4. Lovely quiet barn conversion in the middle of beautiful countryside. Feb 2012.
  5. As described... very rural, beautiful, you need wellies!! Jan 2012.
  6. This was everything I wanted from a weekend in Wales with my family, including 2 children. A lovely and comfortable and unique place to stay with character, and spectacular views of very Welsh scenery. We would definitely want to return. Dec 2011.
  7. For November the weather was ok. The Cottage is amazing, everything you need is there, even a pair of binoculars to watch the wildlife and soak in the amazing views, can’t wait to go back. Nov 2011.
  8. We arrived exhausted, and Sophie’s Barn and this part of Wales was the perfect tonic to recharge our batteries. The barn is excellently located at the head of an extremely picturesque small valley, away from the main farmyard, but close to the farmhouse should you need anything. We were given a fantastic welcome by the family who made us feel special and at home. They were very happy for us to walk our dog through the farmland down to the river, and it was always a lovely start to our day. Overall we loved Sophie’s Barn for it’s views, comfort and cosiness. This was the first time we’ve rented a holiday cottage and would love to come back. Thank you for a great holiday! Oct 2011.
  9. Nearest Pub 3 miles away. Great base for exploring area. Lovely setting. Great for doggie families. Friendly owners. Aug 2011.
  10. The property was excellent and far exceeded our expectations, the owners were extremely helpful and the location was beautiful. The peace and quiet was amazing (apart from the lambs and sheep bleating, absolutely nothing was heard). April 2011.
  11. Compact, well-equipped barn conversion. Sleeps 4 in two rooms - open plan; not private. Owners very welcoming and helpful. Secluded location with wonderful views and walks. April 2011.
  12. It had everything you need. Feb 2011.
  13. The views from the living room are spectacular and on a cold day with the woodburner alight you would be more than happy to just stay put and enjoy the view. The mezzanine bedroom arrangement for us was perfect as we had a 11yr old that loved the idea of having his own space, but appreciated the security of being able to see us in the opposite mezzanine. Our dog loved playing with the owners sheepdogs and there is space for a dog to roam safely off the lead and without the risk of harming sheep. Jan 2011.
  14. Peaceful break in beautiful surroundings. Sept 2010.
  15. The barn was beautifuly laid out and very comfortably furnished and stunning surroundings. Aug 2010.
  16. Old Barn sympathetically converted. Excellent views. Very helpful and friendly owners. June 2010.
  17. Spacious with loads of character and fantastic views. May 2010.
  18. The barn has been beautifully renovated with fantastic views over the valley. The owners were extremely friendly. May 2010.
  19. Fantastic views and walks from the property. April 2010.
  20. A return visit to this lovely peaceful barn conversion with beutiful views. April 2010.
