This three bedroom property in the village of Mainstone is able to sleep up to five people.

This delightful 18th Century, stone-built barn conversion is situated close to the owner’s farmhouse on a 4 1/2 acre smallholding. Specialising in rare breed pigs, sheep, ducks and chickens, the farm is also home to a wildlife pond and is set on the outskirts of the hamlet of Mainstone. The property itself is surrounded by wooded pastures and offers comfortable, well-equipped accommodation. This includes a spacious, triple aspect sitting room with superb views, three lovely bedrooms and a cosy lounge. The large garden boasts a spring-fed stream with decking across it, making this an incredibly relaxing outdoor space.


Perfect stay.
I stayed here with my wife, parents and our dogs. The location is so picturesque and quaint. The facilities within the barn are plentiful and well thought out. If you are looking for a quiet retreat from the world and enjoy walk then this is the place for you. The dogs enjoyed the abundance of fields and woodland to explore and play in. The garden is perfect for dogs and children as totally fenced off around the barn for piece of mind. We will definitely be coming back to this little gem.

The owners were very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. The surroundings were so peaceful and really beautiful. The decking area had the sun all day and was lovely to sit and eat al fresco. The garden was secure and plenty big enough for dogs to have a run round.

The accommodation was very dog friendly, which enabled us to have a relaxing stress free holiday.

Wonderful walking in a beautiful area
We three friends stayed for a week in this barn conversion with the express hope of finding some lovely walks. We were not disappointed. The accommodation itself was just what we wanted:well equipped,warm,enclosed garden for dogs and children, useful welly boot area and downstairs toilet.The owners, who live next door, were attentive and friendly without being intrusive. All in all The Old Cwm Barn is an excellent place for a holiday if you love country things.

The barn is in a marvellous position for those who like peace and quiet, country life and walking. The arrangements for dogs are good: a well fenced garden and lovely walks just from the door.
