We received a very warm welcome from the owner. The cottage was full of character and very well equipped. The surrounding countryside was beautiful and the location was perfect for visiting several counties.

This is a very spacious property which is quiet and only a mile and a half at most from Presteigne (ten minutes on my bike.) The kitchen is especially well equipped with everything you could wish for and ample supplies of plates, mugs and the necessary kitchen equipment. The conservatory is a lovely place for sitting in and reading....the absence oRead moref stairs makes is a suitable property also for people who might struggle with access. Really excellent place.

The large open plan living room and kitchen with the added conservatory gave plenty of space for everyone. The cottage is well equipped and the two bath / shower rooms, as well as wash hand-basins in two of the bedrooms, make it easy for 6 to share. Lovely countryside and interesting places to visit nearby.

Long Barn Cottage is a fabulous place to stay. My wife and I and my 2 sisters had a lovely 6 night stay. The cottage is handily placed for day trips to any of the Welsh border locations, in particular Ludlow, Builth Wells and Montgomery as well as many others. We especially loved the conservatory. The shower room and toilet can be accessed with no Read moresteps up or down . Both the property manager and the owner made us feel welcome in what really is a nice 2nd home on The Rodd property.

The kitchen was very well equipped with all types of utensils, pans etc, however, there is a lack of storage space for visitors food.....it really needs a larder or separate cupboard for storage.
