About this listing
The house sleeps up to 8 guests comfortably. The Haybarn is a mix of old and modern and equipped with everything needed for a fantastic holiday. Located in a prime area to take advantage of the many day trips and activities available in both Wales and Shropshire.
Powys is the largest county in Wales and one of the least populated in the UK. This means that there are many places to discover and enjoy but without the stress and at your own pace. Obviously some of the best things to do in the county involve exploring the glorious countryside where you will find waterfalls, mountains and forests. There are also many beautiful market towns to visit such as Welshpool and Montgomery which has recently opened a fantastic Michelin starred restaurant, the Chequers.
There are many country pursuits available in the area and with great possibilities to play golf, go horse riding, fishing and shooting among many other activities. The breathtaking Snowdonia can be reached in under an hour from the house as can the beach both of which make fantastic day trips that we highly recommend.
Although in Wales the house is on also on the Shropshire border which also has so much to offer. Fantastic examples of Tudor architecture can be found in towns such as Ludlow, Shrewsbury and Chester as can some of the country's favourite food, Ludlow has more Michelin starred restaurants outside of London than anywhere else in the UK! Shropshire was the birthplace of the industrial revolution and you can see great examples of it's revolutionary past in places such as Ironbridge and the renowned Victorian model village at Bliss Hill for example. There are also great walks around close by such as at Church-Stretton, the Long Mynd and the Styper stones to name but a few.
The local area is full of attractions and things to do, some of the local activities we recommend include: visiting the National Trust around Powis Castle in Welshpool which is said to have the best gardens in the country; a ride on the well-known Llanfair-Welshpool steam railway; a visit to the Redwood plantation in Forden; taking a spot of lunch in the Victorian 5 star hotel overlooking the stunning lake Vyrnwy after a walk; a visit to the highest waterfall in Wales, Pistyll Rhayder or simply enjoying some of the great walks straight from the door which include trails on the Offa's Dyke that go around the famous and historic Leighton Estate
