    We arrived mid-afternoon to be greeted by Suzanne. Walking into Sophies Barn, the boys ran up their spiral staircase to choose their beds. We took our dog through to the fenced off garden and was greeted with a stunning view of Castle Hill with the brook meandering through the fields. Bliss. Phil told us that all the farm fields were available to explore and walk our dog in, be aware there are sheep, lots of sheep, so it makes sense to have your dog on a lead. The living area is perfect for a family, large dining table for mealtime, two leather recliner sofas for relaxing (when your not outside drinking in the views) with freeview tv and dvd player, both bedrooms have their own seperate staircase with a large queensize bed on one side of the barn and two single beds on the other, no complaints from the boys about sleeping and we slept like babies. The kitchen area is adequate, having all the utilities you need although when we booked we read there was a washing machine, there isn't. The only gripe came from our son and his friend that there was no broadband/wi-fi but Suzanne and Phil assured us that plans were in place to fix that. Night here is amazing with a cloudless sky, I never knew you could see so many stars. The nearest town is Llandrindod Wells about seven miles away which has everything you need for supplies and one or two good pubs. Sophies Barn is about fifty miles from the coast with some wonderful beaches that are dog friendly but check first as some beaches ban dogs during certain months. Borth is perfect for long walks with your dog, boasting ten miles of soft sand. The mountain pass to Aberystwyth and Borth takes longer to get there but is well worth the time with stunning views of the Elan Valley. All in all a beautifully relaxing week spent in stunning countryside. Highly recommended.

    This is the second time we've stayed at Sophie's Barn and are already planning a return trip next year. The location is beautiful, so peaceful and relaxing - we slept better than we have for months! There are some great walks straight from the door and lots of other activities slightly further afield. The owners are lovely people - friendly and helpful but without being obtrusive.

    We had a great holiday based here. Sophies Barn is thoughtfully converted and furnished in a wonderfully quiet and beautiful location. It exceeded our expectations as did the welcome and friendliness of the hosts, Suzanne and Philip. We found there were many walking options right from the door and further afield so we were spoilt for choice. Highly recommended.

    The cottage is in a beautiful location with amazing views. The owners, Phil & Suzanne were very welcoming and helpful. Good sized rear garden for our dog and well-fenced as there were sheep in the adjoining field ! Llandrindod was only 3 miles away with a good selection of places to eat. We would certainly consider a return visit.

    For two adults and two teenagers and the dog, it was perfect. The oven could do with updating but otherwise the facilities were superb. The owners were very friendly, helpful and accommodating.

    What a lovely cottage and such beautiful views. We had a wonderful relaxing week, exactly what we wanted. The kids loved the dogs coming over to visit, and being able to visit and holding the lambs on the farm was a bonus. The owners are lovely and very helpful, I now have a new skill... Fire lighting! You have to see the place for yourself to appreciate how amazing it is. Not loads to do locally but that's exactly what we wanted, found enough to do in the days before snuggling up with the real fire in the evenings. We would definitely return. Only downside, kitchen needs a new oven and a bit if a spring clean

    Amazing rural location; great view and dark skies so plenty of stars. Very comfortable with basic, but more than adequate facilities. Great hosts.
