Enjoying an elevated location within a cluster of traditional cottages, this charming detached barn is the perfect base for family and friends to relax and enjoy time together at any time of year.

Gather your loved ones and take a step back in time with a stay in this beautiful barn, sleeping eight in four bedrooms within 30 peaceful acres of farmland. With the living space designed with socialising at its heart, find ample spaces for a group to relax together, with plenty of nooks for some quiet time too. An abundance of activities in the local area will keep everyone happy, so spend an afternoon browsing the eclectic book shops of Hay-on-Wye or take a group visit to get the pulses racing at Battlelands Paintball before returning to laze next to the warmth of the crackling wood burner.

Rustic in style yet with modern conveniences, exposed stone walls and wooden beams reflect this barn building’s original construction with the traditional features lovingly retained throughout. Country chic with a neutral palette of beige and cream complementing the warm wooden furniture and stone floors, the kitchen/diner is the hub of the barn, perfect for sociable mealtimes or an evening of board games. The utility room is ideal for the extra storage space that is required for a group holiday! Down the stairs to the spacious living room, where low ceilings create a characterful and cosy setting, just perfect for a companionable evening of film watching. Marvel at the beautiful views and, as the evening sets in, light the wood burner and enjoy a snooze on the sofa. The four bedrooms boast countryside views, and are comfortable and cosy – and, with the en-suite shower room and family bathroom, there is no queuing! The spacious interiors are matched perfectly by the far-reaching surroundings. Roam freely in the fields or climb higher for a picnic along the well-waymarked footpaths. Discover a children's hideout for endless hours of fun. The small enclosed garden with table and chairs is perfectly placed to enjoy the summer sun. There is off-road parking for three cars.

We loved Shoppe Cottage! The big kitchen diner was great for our evening meals where we all could cook and chat and eat together.

The barn was perfect for a family short break. The location is peaceful, not difficult to find, offering beautiful views. The barn itself was well equipped and tastefully decorated with handcrafted items in keeping with the style of the building. We appreciated also little touches like a basket of toys for toddlers. Young and adults (!) enjoyed theRead more play area, as well as the opportunity of walks starting straight from the door. Hide

Had a lovely week in this beautiful cottage, fantastic surroundings, was made very welcome by the owners, the only downside was that the dogs had to stay in the utility room and kitchen (this was not mentioned on the website) if the property takes dogs they should be allowed in all areas downstairs, as we had paid extra for them.
