“Beautiful Barn Conversion In Idyllic Surroundings”
Reviewed 21 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I had been looking for a barn or cottage to stay in with 7 of my friends to celebrate my 40th Birthday. Having spent my last birthday in a beautiful cottage in Machynlleth with stunning valley views I really wanted to return to Wales again. I didn't think we could outdo last year but as soon as we arrived we all excitedly ran around the spacious barn and straight away knew it was better! Firstly the directions the owner Bernard gave us were concise and very discriptive. Excellent for when sat nav fails and you are driving along unknown country lanes. Secondly the impressive veranda with decking and hot tub was amazing. All topped up and ready to go. We spent all our evenings outside here as its such a good social space. Further round we had a picnic table area, a fire pit, BBQ, a wooded area and the river. Our only neighbours were the grazing sheep and horses. Inside the lounge is massive and has speakers in the ceiling allowing you to connect your music to the sound system and play that should you require. The kitchen we were impressed with as it had everything you could possibly need including a microwave, dishwasher and a large dining table that could be extended for extra guests. One thing we were disappointed with last year was a tiny fridge no bigger than a microwave. At Abernant they spoilt us with one large fridge freezer and a couple of days into our stay we discovered another fridge in the boot room / utility!! Upstairs three large bedrooms two with double beds and one with four bunk beds. Plenty of room for everyone. Upstairs you will also find the main bathroom with bath and shower. Lovely wooden beams from the original barn can be found in the bedrooms but theres still lots of headroom! (Good for a tall person like myself!!) Llanwyrtd is about 20 mins walk away from the barn but about 5 mins in a car. We had a drink at the local hotel and bought provisions from the small Spar shop they have in town. All in all everyone enjoyed themselves and said they would like to return one day. I had the best birthday ever and chosing the perfect venue for it certainly enhanced that! If you want peace and quiet but also somewhere contemporary where you can have a small gathering this barn is definitely the place to stay! Finally I would just like to thank Bernard who was extremely helpful and kind throughout our stay. Any questions I had he responded promptly. I can't wait to visit again for my 50th!!

“lovely quiet place”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I and my family had a good time at the barn, very quiet and relaxing location. Lots of space for children to run around played lots of ball games on the big lawn, also there is a river just outside of the barn where we tried fishing but were unlucky. The hot tub is a great addition to all of this.
We self-catered and found the kitchen very good with lots of equipment. My wife enjoyed cooking on the induction hob as she normally uses a gas one.
We enjoyed our stay and looking forward to coming back to this lovely place.

“Excellent tranquil location”
Reviewed 19 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Abernant barn is a perfect place to go for peace, quiet and tranquility. Set in its own large grounds you can stay here in comfort and enjoy a perfect relaxing holiday. The barn is fully equipped to a really high standard with everything you could need to enjoy your stay. Inside is immaculate with a lovely kitchen (including dishwasher) and a washing machine and vitally for large parties, two loos. There is a really nice bathroom with a walk in shower and a freestanding bath. It is nestled in a little wooded area bounded by a stream and the decking, which is huge, gives you a great view. Outside has a really warm hot tub, BBQ and fire pit. We were lucky enough to have great weather for our stay, except the last day when it rained, but the barn would be perfect in all weathers as the decking area is completely covered. Inside would be cosy in the cold weather with a large wood burner to heat up the lounge. The little town is a few minutes walk away and has a shop and a couple of pubs - everything you need. The whole setting is beautiful and there are a number of quaint towns dotted about. Overall I would recommend this to anyone who wants a quiet break with a lot of space. Absolutely perfect.

I'm glad the weather didn't spoil your stay. The under cover area has saved many a rainy day. Maybe see you again next year.
