We had a superb time. The hosts were very friendly. The cottage was exactly as described and superb in every way. The enclosed garden was great for our two dogs, very safe and secure with a view to die for! The moment we phoned your office to book everything went like clockwork.

The beautiful cottage is in a secluded area. The cottage was very well decorated and had everything you could possibly need. The wood burner and the Jacuzzi bath just added to the gorgeous cottage. The views were amazing. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Lots of things to do in the area. We will definitely be returning to this beautiful cottage.

The cottage was in a lovely setting with far reaching views across a valley. It was very peaceful and quiet. The cottage made an excellent base for visiting the local area, we would definitely stay there again.

The location was outstanding, had beautiful views. We received a lovely welcome and tour of the property and felt there was always someone around to help if it had been needed.

The owners are such lovely warm genuine people. This is a warm cosy cottage on a small working hill farm with stunning views from the master bedroom and lounge. There was easy parking and it was so peaceful - with a hidden secret wooded valley gorge for the main access towards Welshpool. The place is spotless, with so much love and care put into it. There was a log fire with unlimited wood and it was warm with easily controlled underfloor heating. Had good DVD films, and was sufficiently private with your privacy respected. The views from it and the farm are glorious.

The owners couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable, polite, friendly and non intrusive, they truly were great hosts. The on-site resident was also very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be returning! Thank you.

This excellent, well appointed and supplied accommodation gives onto the most astonishingly gorgeous view of great distance. There may be better things than sitting in the separate garden overlooking this wonder, sipping whatever you will, on a lovely day, but I cannot think of it. The area itself is of great natural beauty in general, and so the nearby roads are rather narrow, but it is not too far to Welshpool for all your big-town needs. A major plus of this accommodation are the friendly owners. To be warmly recommended to anyone who really wants to get away from it all, but does not want to trade in the modern conveniences in part exchange.

We had a lovely New Year break at Halfen. Standards throughout the cottage were superb. Warm and cosy with under-floor heating, a wood burner in the lounge and a deep Jacuzzi bath and power shower to relax in after walks in the surrounding countryside. The owners and the nearby resident were welcoming and extremely helpful. The views and walks were fantastic; our two terriers loved it. Looking forward to our next stay at Halfen Granary.

An awesome way to see the New Year in with friends! Friendly and extremely helpful hosts and the cottage fully met our needs as a group plus 2 dogs! Plenty of beautiful walks and places to visit nearby. Would certainly recommend and would love to go back one day

We had a fantastic time here, after a few hiccups with work commitments only half our party could attend so we will definitely be returning in the future, we particularly liked the luxury of underfloor heating and the scenery.

Our stay in the Halfen Granary was nothing short of excellent! Everything that we could have wished for was provided, in fact, it far exceeded our expectations! The property was up to a very high standard and very well equipped. It was also very comfortable with a well fitted living room, a fine kitchen, great bathroom and 3 bedrooms upstairs. There was a television and DVD player in the living room and also one in each bedroom. Add to that various books and games and a huge amount of information about the area and you have all the elements for a great holiday in the Welsh mountains. The area is lovely, with lots to do and plenty of walks in the neighbourhood. Highly recommended!

I echo the previous reviews - the cottage is lovely, well-equipped and clean. The views are stunning and the cottage is ideal for those who enjoy peaceful holidays in the heart of the countryside. There are no streetlamps and one evening we were treated to a quite magical display of stars. We chose the area initially because we had family matters to attend to (I was brought up about ten miles away) and we thought Halfen looked nice from the description and from the photo. We also chose it because it has an enclosed garden for our two Jack Russell dogs. In fact, the garden proved to be a hit as it is big enough to play ball with them and it is very secure. The surrounding fields contain sheep so it was very important to us that the dogs could be allowed off the lead within a secure environment. Although the cottage is part of a farm, the yard outside is very clean and well-maintained. On the day we arrived, we were given a very warm welcome and enjoyed chatting to the owners in passing. My elderly mother stayed with us for a few nights and, although she doesn't walk very well, she managed to climb the stairs with no trouble - the stairs are wide and the handrail is solid wood. The kitchen is very well-equipped and I loved having a decent-sized freezer (we were there for two weeks). The only thing I could have done with was a kitchen scissors to open bags of food etc but I was able to buy one cheaply when we went shopping. On that subject, I would recommend Welshpool as it is the nearest sizeable town to Halfen. It has three supermarkets plus the usual shops and services. Unfortunately, we drove the long way to Welshpool and only found out towards the end of our holiday that there is a much shorter route - we wished we'd have asked the owners about this from the start (so much for my local knowledge!). A word of warning - for the last couple of miles to the cottage (from either direction) the road is very narrow so be prepared to give way to oncoming vehicles. All in all, a lovely break and we would definitely go back.

The place where the Granary is located is just beautiful. If you want a rural retreat and somewhere where you can totally unwind and relax then this is the place for you. The house itself was second to none, like a home from home and the family who own the property were excellent hosts throughout, nothing was too much trouble. I can highly recommend this property and the location and we will definitely be returning as soon as possible!

The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The cottage was really good and homely full of various types of equipment including a travel cot. Beautiful scenery and surroundings and very quiet in the middle of nowhere but not too far to go to different attractions just what we wanted. We were lucky with the weather so were able to sit in the garden if we didn't want to go out. We would go again if we wanted a break from it all!

Just got back from a fantastic week here. The accommodation is best described as traditional, homely and snug. The kitchen is stocked so just bring food and possibly a dishwasher tablet or two. The jacuzzi bath has a radio so you'll sit in it for an hour, beds comfy although the twin beds are best for children. Their is a BBQ area which looks out into the valley which we utilised twice. Jack the owner is extremely friendly and answers all questions. You can watch him round up the sheep. Highly recommended
