Ysgubor Helyg is a recent, quirky conversion of a traditional stone barn, semi-detached to the owners’ farmhouse on a quiet rural no-through lane in the hills between Llanfair Caereinion (6.5 miles) and Carno (8 miles), 10 miles north of Caersws. This is a peaceful location for those wishing to walk and drive the beautiful Mid Wales countryside.
The cottage benefits from oil-fired central heating (combi-boiler), with water from a private spring (tested and passed as safe for drinking); WiFi is also available in some rooms

Easy to book with friendly customer service. A great selection of cottages at reasonable prices. Ysgubor Helyg is very remote and only suitable for those with a car or motorbike, but a very pleasant place to stay. Mrs Alison Flynn - 24th September 2018
