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

Ysgubor Helyg is just outside the hamlet of Cefn Coch. Tregynon, 6 miles away, has a village shop and petrol station. Llanfair Caereinion, 6.5 miles, is an attractive market town with a range of shops, pubs and other facilities, and the Welshpool – Llanfair Caereinion steam railway line. The picturesque former county-town of Montgomery, with its spectacular castle ruins, local museum, cafes, restaurants and Monty’s Brewery Visitor Centre is 16 miles away. It is around 20-25 miles to the southern edges of the Snowdonia National Park, including the ancient market town of Machynlleth and the picturesque Mallwyd with the historic Brigands Inn pub. This is an excellent location for walking and for escaping the hustle and bustle of modern life.

Electricity and central heating included

Bed linen and towels provided

* Charge for use of additional occupancy, for use of day bed (single or double) and/or pull-out single: £30 per person per week; please note that the sitting room and dining room are only set to accommodate 6 adults comfortably


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.
