This stone-built barn conversion, adjoining the owner’s home, is in the grounds of an eight acre smallholding and is situated two miles from the village of Hundred House in Mid-Wales and sleeps two people.

The Barn at Glanoer is a stone-built barn conversion, adjoining the owner’s home, with its own private entrance, in the grounds of an eight acre smallholding and is situated two miles from the village of Hundred House, close to the market town of Builth Wells in Mid-Wales. This cottage sleeps two people in a mezzanine zip/link super king-size double bedroom with roll-top bath and a glass balcony over-looking the sitting area. The cottage also has a ground floor wet room, and an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburner.

Outside there is off road parking for two cars, and a front lawned garden with patio, furniture and barbecue. The Barn at Glanoer is a wonderful romantic retreat with many places to visit and activities to enjoy in the area. Note: Due to the unfenced stream 20 feet away, care should be taken.

Note: Dogs must be kept on a lead due to free range chickens and the sheep on surrounding fields. Note: Due to the mezzanine area with the glass balcony, children should be supervised at all times.


What a place! Private, peaceful, beautiful surroundings. The barn was well equipped with everything we needed and the hamper on arrival was a lovely touch, fresh coffee and eggs, marmalade, milk, homemade bread, butter, bacon...how thoughtful. We visited and hiked around Elan Valley, Brecon Beacons, Ludlow and locally ?water-break-its-neck? (walked from local Fforest Inn). The bath and log burner were a treat to look forward to after a long hike. The Fforest Inn did wonderful food (homemade chips) also The Hundred Inn but we did prefer The Fforest. Sue and Dave were really lovely, left us in peace but were happy to help if ever needed. They even gave us some puppy pads as we were picking up our puppy on the way home. Would love to return so hopefully our pup will become a well behaved dog and we can all go again. Couldn?t have had a more relaxing stay, thank you Sue and Dave xx??

Excellent, relaxing week
Had a fantastic week at the barn, arrived to a warm welcome from Sue and the dogs, The welcome hamper had us off to the butchers first thing on Saturday, Sue's bread was delicious. The hens came regular as clockwork for their breakfast crumbs, our thankyou for their fresh delicious eggs. We came for a relaxing week and certainly got one, the barn was bigger than i expected and beautifully done out, the bed so comfy and the log burner was a lovely treat in the evenings. The views and surrounding countryside were beautiful and watching all the birds on the feeders was a treat. We pottered around the surrounding areas, during the day and relaxed in front of the log burner in the evenings, perfect! Sue and Dave couldnt have been nicer hosts, we will definitely be returning

If you are looking for a relaxing country retreat in a fantastic barn conversion look no further.
A wonderful week at Glanoer with our dog. Excellent barn , beautiful peaceful countryside location . Very friendly hosts. Highly recommended.

This is a wonderful barn, with wonderful hosts, in a wonderful location. We have stayed in many holiday cottages but this is by far the best. The owner's have made their holiday barn the perfect place to rest and unwind and oasis of calm!

You must go to this property, it is absolutely fantastic! From the moment we arrived the owners made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage itself is decorated beautifully and the added touches like the welcome hamper full of goodies really made the stay extra special. The location of the property is perfect for a relaxing break away. We were very sad to leave!
