It felt like we were staying in a boutique hotel.

A beautiful barn converted imaginatively into a wonderful retreat. Our hosts were exactly right in that they were helpful and welcoming without being intrusive. The Barn had absolutely everything we needed and more. We will definitely be coming again.

You must go to this property, it is absolutely fantastic! From the moment we arrived the owners made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage itself is decorated beautifully and the added touches like the welcome hamper full of goodies really made the stay extra special. The location of the property is perfect for a relaxing break away. We were very sad to leave!

We have stayed here before. We have been staying in this type of accommodation for twenty plus years and it is unusual for us to go back to any holiday cottage unless we found it to be especially good. The Barn at Glanour is certainly one of the best all round packages we have experienced. We are quite likely to book again.

The Barn at Glanoer is in a lovely, peaceful setting with a beautiful view from the impressive window which overlooks the garden and stream.
Mr Massey
April 2016
We were met on our arrival by the owner who went through everything that we needed to know during our stay. The property was absolutely stunning with everything supplied for us during our stay, the break was one of the most relaxing we have ever had. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts which made us feel more than welcome. We will be returning to this great place later on in the year.
Mrs Smith
June 2016
This is a wonderful barn, with wonderful hosts, in a wonderful location. We have stayed in many holiday cottages but this is by far the best. The owner's have made their holiday barn the perfect place to rest and unwind and oasis of calm!
Mr Meeks

We found The Barn at Glanoer to be absolutely perfect for us and our dog. Inside the first impression is welcoming, practical and comfortable but very attractive.The owners are really nice people and they have everything just right. The Barn is very private and not overlooked. We spent most of the week at The Barn. It was so pleasant and relaxing there that we found no incentive to go anywhere else.
Mrs Thompson
March 2015
Wow what a fantastic cottage. It is simply beautiful, in a stunning location and has absolutely everything you need. The owners were great and left us to relax while being on hand if we needed anything. Definitely would recommend staying at The Barn - it's a real find.
Mr Steeds
April 2015
Absolutely fantastic, couldn't fault any aspect of the accommodation. 100% would recommend.
Miss Vinnecombe
September 2015
The Barn was an absolute dream to stay in, and the area was very central to Mid Wales for exploring. The owners were excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them, they were very knowledgeable about the local area and were able to recommend some excellent places to visit. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone who wishes to visit Wales.
Mrs Buckle
April 2015
The owners were extremely welcoming and helpful. The hamper of bread, eggs etc was perfect and we loved the treats and toys left for our dog. We also asked for a meal to be provided on the evening of our arrival (as offered on the Glanoer website). This was excellent. Everything was done to make our stay as restful and comfortable as possible. It was no hardship to curl up on the comfy sofa while the rain lashed down outside and watch the numerous birds on the feeders outside our windows.
Mrs Shaw-Weston
February 2015
Exceptionally well equipped with all of the highest standard - the bed was superb. The welcome was warm and the hosts attentive yet allowed us total privacy. I can't recommend this place highly enough.
Mr Evans
February 2015
Great base for hiking the surrounding areas, a very relaxing place in a lovely location. The hosts were very helpful and not intrusive in any way. It was great to wake up every morning and look out from the (very comfortable) bed, to see the dawn breaking through the full length glass front, then to sit and watch the many different types of bird that came in to feed from the nut feeders. It was hard to drag ourselves away from this fascinating viewing. Then when we returned after our days hiking, it was great to relax in front of the log burner and watch the stars with a nice glass of wine. Everything we needed was at hand and the owners were great at supplying information about the local area. To sum up, a beautiful place to stay with really lovely people to give you any help or information you require.
Mr Rogers

We loved everything! The beautiful window, the log burner, the bed and welcome hamper were particular highlights. A perfect holiday for peace and quiet.
Mr Watson
August 2015
It was a perfect package and the facilities suited us very well. The owners were very welcoming and helpful, the location was exactly what we wanted.
Mr Wylde
April 2015
It was very relaxing in a superb location where our hosts had thought of everything we could possibly need. The location of the property was in a beautiful part of Wales with plenty of wildlife to be seen. An excellent place to spend a week away from all the usual humdrum of life in the City.
Mrs Baker
February 2015
The owners made us very welcome but gave us privacy too. The location is amazing and the bird life is encouraged to visit by regularly replenished bird feeders. The information booklet was also very practical and informative. We will definitely return to Glanoer.
Miss Sheehy
December 2014
We have just returned from a fantastic week away at The Barn. The location is perfect for relaxing and winding down. The view from the large window is amazing, it was beautiful to wake up to on a crisp winters morning. The decor is modern, fresh and spotless, you couldn't ask for anything more - only to stay a bit longer! Thank you for such a wonderful break away, we would have no hesitation in recommending!
Mr Baker
July 2014
This property was the whole works with great owners and a great welcome. We had a perfect holiday and were totally relaxed by the peace and quiet.
Miss Downer
May 2014
I absolutely loved this holiday cottage and the owners were helpful, hospitable and provided all that was required and more. The standard was very good but the little extras made it even better. The cottage itself was the result of a very well thought out use of space and furnished tastefully. I wish I had stayed longer. I would book this again.
Mrs Wood
November 2014
Our hosts were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. The location was perfect. The Barn was amazing and so tranquil, a definite must for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle, you cannot help but be relaxed here.
Miss Durrant
December 2014
Fantastic holiday cottage, so homely and comfortable. We had a warm welcome with a lovely hamper which had all the essentials to start your holiday. Hospitality from the owners was fantastic. They were there when needed and nothing was too much trouble. Plenty to do in the area if you wanted to head out and about. The Red Kite feeding was amazing but the cottage was perfect just to spend quiet time in relaxing and unwinding . We had a wonderful holiday, a real get away from it all week.
Mrs Causton
June 2014
The Barn is gorgeous and just right for two people, the owners have thought of everything to make your stay relaxing. The furnishings are comfortable and stylish and the welcome basket is a lovely touch. The view from the glass window is amazing, what a lovely way to wake up in the morning and have a bath in the evening with GT in hand! There are many nice places to visit in this area and the local towns have some interesting individual shops. We were really lucky with the weather during our stay so spent most evenings just sitting on the patio, drink in hand, watching the show provided by the abundant bird life. We also really appreciated the company of the resident doggies and also the chickens (thanks for the eggs girls). We did venture out one night to the most fantastic restaurant, The Drawing Room which is well worth the expense for a very special meal. All in all we had a really restful, relaxing week which was just what we both needed. If you want to visit this part of the world then book this lovely Barn, you will not be disappointed.

Another gem from Sykes. The Barn had been thoughtfully converted with modern decor. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful without being intrusive. A little isolated but this did not bother us, it was peaceful with great country views. It was an ideal place to RELAX! If you love the countryside this is the place for you.
Mrs Hermes
May 2014
The Barn is an absolute gem. Beautifully decorated and with every need catered for the owners can be very proud of what they have created in a lovely part of Wales. From the warm welcome and the most generous welcome pack I have ever received in 15 years of holidaying at cottages to the extremely thoughtful dog welcome pack to the lovely fluffy towels and bathrobes this is a couple who know all about catering to their guests needs. The Barn has been architecturally modernised but retained a warm and rustic feel which gives it a unique and special charm. I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage and know that the dogs and I will be back.
Mrs Kerbel
April 2014
The accommodation has been skilfully converted to make it feel very spacious. Outside felt the same, with a large sheltered patio and a private garden area with a stream. This meant that if the weather forecast was not so promising, one felt happy just pottering around and watching the birds through the gable end of the barn which is all glass. If it was a clear night the stars were amazingly bright. A great all year round getaway location.
Mr Murfitt

Beautiful accommodation and surroundings as well as friendly helpful hosts.

A little piece of heaven! A beautiful place, peace and quiet and a wonderful warm welcome. I can't recommend this place highly enough. We will definitely be returning.
February 2016
We booked this lovely barn conversion to celebrate my wife's special birthday,and from the moment we arrived we knew it was going to be perfect. Sue met us,and handed the keys over and showed us in,explaing how things worked,we felt very welcome After she left,we had a bit of a reccy,and found a super welcome hamper,the free range home produced eggs were delicious not to mention,bread,marmalade,butter,bacon and milk As the barn is in quite a remote location,self catering is the obvious choice,and we couldn't think of anything we needed during are whole stay,it really is that well knitted out. The bed was super comfy,I slept like a log. And then as if things couldn't get any better,on the big day,(birthday). Sue popped round with a homemade cake,complete with candle playing happy birthday tune. We thankyou Sue and Dave,for making our stay so memorable,hopefully we will return one day,but until then,take care and all the best. Colin,Sally & Alfie the cocker poo

A wonderful week at Glanoer with our dog. Excellent barn , beautiful peaceful countryside location . Very friendly hosts. Highly recommended.
January 2016
We booked this barn for a new years break for my husband myself and our dog, a three night break to escape reality and that is exactly what we got! There was a lovely welcome hamper for us and even some dog treats! The owners really have thought of everything with this barn, a log burning stove (with the first basket of wood provided), a luxurious bath overlooking the amazing window so you can see the beautiful countryside as you relax, so many DVDs and books to choose from and a kitchen with everything you could think of needing. It is in the middle of nowhere with at least a 15 min drive to the nearest shop. We did enjoy a walk in the countryside even though the weather was awful the whole time we were there. We would love to return to enjoy more walks with the dog and make the most of the lovely outside space.

What a wonderful relaxing escape. Sue and Dave have made The Barn at Glenoer so welcoming it's hard to leave; from the welcome hamper with homemade marmalade and eggs from the free range ladies to soaking in that roll top bath while experiencing the views through that window. Your every comfort is catered for. The area is perfect for exploring further afield too. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend The Barn at Glenoer particularly for pet owners as our dog loved it too.

We arrived on Friday afternoon and were greeted by Sue and the dogs, a very warm welcome. Sue had left a welcome pack consisting of fresh eggs from her chickens, fresh baked bread, home made marmalade, tea, coffee and butter. the accommodation was just perfect. A lot of thought had gone into the design of the barn conversion. Dave and Sue have achieved a very high standard, you would be hard pressed (or very picky) to find fault. The setting is idealic and very peaceful. Abundant wildlife can be enjoyed including great spotted woodpeckers, Red Kites, Buzzards, and a host of garden birds. It is the perfect location to explore Mid Wales as once onto A roads there is so little traffic, it does not take long to get anywhere. A most relaxing week and this property is well recommended.
April 2015
Not long home from our amazing weeks stay at Glanoer Barn in mid Wales,what a fantastic time we had at one with nature. We were welcomed by our lovely host Sue,and gorgeous dogs Poli and Kiti and shown the barn,it was everything we imagined and more,comfy sofas and lovely log burner,which we did use in the evening...A lovely and unexpected touch was the little welcome hamper left for us,with butter,fresh bread,eggs from the girls and home made marmalade,which was to die for.We ordered our first evenings meal from Sue and we must say it was delicious,very tasty salmon indeed,and dessert was outstanding...Nothing was too much trouble for both Dave and Sue, and we will certainly be back in the future,continue the good work guys...

On arrival we were lost,a quick call to Sue,problem solved she drove out to our location and guided us in.Then the amazing accommodation was before our eyes.Just perfect in every way,lovely presentation of the Barn with a most welcoming hamper of home made bread,marmalde,butter,fresh coffee,eggs from their free range hens,with milk and bacon in the fridge.An absolutle perfect start to our break.During the next day or so we soon realised that Sue and Dave think of everything,the little touches were all there just everything you may need.Sue and Dave are perfect hosts always on hand to offer advice and information on the local area and anything else you may need,,but without ever imposing themselves upon you. Two of the lovliest people you could wish to meet.Everything in this property is of a very high standard much much better than 5 stars but that's all we can give for this review.Take our advice and book it we can guarantee you will not be dissapointed . We will be booking again soon.Big Thank you to Sue and Dave for a fantastic break Shay and Sean.

Hate writing this review because selfishly we don't want anyone else to book this hidden gem. However, we feel we owe it to Two lovely people Susan & Dave.(Your hosts at Glanoer) From the moment we arrived we felt at home. Susan showed us round the barn which is outstanding. There was even a complimentary welcome basket with fresh eggs laid by 'The Glanoer girls' ( the chickens), butter, a loaf of bread, milk in a jug in the fridge and a packet of bacon. Tha views from the windows which cover both levels of the barn are beautiful. Watching the birds feeding from the bird feeders strategically placed right in front of the barn whilst eating breakfast brings its own peace and calm much needed from our hectic lives back home. Although the barn has central heating for those colder evenings its much more fun to light the log burner which is easy to do even if you were never in boy scouts or girl guides. The bed is so comfortable we didn't want to get out of it. The wet room is far easier to use than a shower although for those who like to bathe, a cute roll top bath in the bedroom overlooking the hills is a treat. If you're a dog lover you'll love Poli & Kiti (Susan & Daves) wonderful pets. So lovable and will gladly tag along for a walk in the fields with you if you so wish. Susan and Dave were in the process of building a pond whilst we were there which we're sure will add to the overall feel of being at one with nature. There had also been concrete evidence of dog otters at Glanoer. For those who want get away from the stress of city life or just to use as a base for visiting the area, then we're sorry to say, Glanoer is simply 'Perfect'!

Wonderful place to stay,log burner,starry,moonlit nights,peace and quiet but with great hikes close by. Excellent hosts in Sue and Dave (Dai Cockney) very helpful but not intrusive in any way,lovely touches upon arrival (welcome hamper with eggs,bacon,bread,butter,tea,coffee,milk) and a lovely birthday cake for my wife,lovely comfortable bed with excellent views out into some very interesting countryside,loved having breakfast watching the amazing assortment of birds feeding at the feeders. Near to Builth & Llandrindod for larger food shopping if you need anything. Everything at hand in the cottage,wi-fi good,TV modern,iPod dock & player,but we loved switching everything off (apart from the log burner) and just sitting there enjoying the moon & stars,would highly recommend and congratulations Sue & dave on a smashing place xx

The Barn - Heavenly, welcoming, warm & tranquil. Amazing hosts, beautiful welcome basket for us and also for our dog Radley!! Nothing is too much trouble for Sue and David. Fabulously appointed accommodation a gem in mid Wales that everyone should try. Bed & Breakfast is also available at the Farmhouse, you will not be disappointed in whichever accommodation you choose.

The Barn at Glanoer never fails to impress. The owners, Dave and Sue, are always friendly and helpful. So if you're looking to get away from it all without flying halfway around the world, this could be the place for you.

We stayed at this property in January, this was our Christmas present to each other, a week of peace, quiet and relaxation. We were not disappointed, it was an amazing stay from start to finish. We were greeted by the owner who showed us around the barn and presented with a lovely breakfast hamper which included home made marmalade and the tastiest eggs we have ever had! The bedroom was wonderful with stunning views of the countryside through the full length window, and the bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in. The barn was equipped with everything you could need, the attention to detail was second to none. We can't wait to return next January!
September 2014
My girlfriend and I had planned a gorgeous sun filled week away in Greece, plans changed and I began to look for a cottage break in the UK. The first thing I saw of Glanoer was the roll-top bath situated on the bedroom mezzanine in front of a two story window that framed the beautiful Welsh countryside. I was sold and booked 8 days at the start of August. Expert directions (courtesy of the hosts) had us comfortably cruise through beautiful Wales and arrive at the Glanoer farm early evening. Upon arrival we were met by the wonderful Sue Stone who after making us feel welcome and at ease,preceded to show us all we would need to know about the barn. Our new home for the week was spotless, modern but with tons of period features and old world charm not to mention ridiculously well appointed. Anything you could ask for was there at hand. A beautiful gift basket with eggs laid by the farms own fabulous Glanoer girls, homemade marmalade and freshly baked bread was just the first of many surprises. During our stay our hosts were on hand if ever we required anything but the best thing they offered was privacy. We felt like we were completely alone at times, apart from the birds, butterflies and occasional rabbit that is. We cooked, ate by the babbling brook in the dying sun and then lit the wood burner and watched movies on the comfy sofas and big screen tv. Heaven. Leaflets provided by our hosts led us to a number of walks and days out namely, renting a boat on the Brecon canal. We could not have wished for a more beautiful place to spend our holiday. We will definitely be returning to where we both spent the best holiday we have ever taken.

If you want hustle and bustle this is not the place for you. When we arrived all we could hear was the babbling brook and birdsong. The barn didn't disappoint. The layout was ideal with an open plan living space and the bedroom on a mezzanine. The large window made it feel like the outdoors had come indoors. The owners and their dogs made us very welcome, and left us to enjoy our break.
August 2014
There are so many positives to this place, I'm not sure where to start so I'll just start at the beginning! We arrived last Friday to the barn and were immediately welcomed by the owners Sue and Dave and their very friendly dogs. The place itself was stunning - totally out in the countryside where all you could hear were the birds and the trickling stream. The barn, which is attached onto the main house, was immaculately clean, and yet felt very warm and homely. My favourite thing about the barn was the view out onto the gardens and fields. Waking up in the morning and being able to see nothing but greenery and sunshine was just perfect. To make our stay even more memorable, Sue and Dave had provided us with a beautiful hamper full of homemade goodies - the orange marmalade and the seeded bread were very much enjoyed! As well as this, there were also some lovely treats left out for our dog Bertie, who, like us, had an absolutely fantastic time frolicking around the fields and investigating new areas. There are some great walks in the local area if that is the sort of thing you or after. Likewise, if you want to go a bit further a field, there are lots of good drinking spots and quirky shops to explore in Llandrindod Wells and Hay-on-Wye. All in all, this is a great place to recharge your batteries and we certainly can't wait to return.
June 2014
We have just got back from a weeks stay in the Barn. Pictures do not do it justice. although small in size, it felt, because of design extremely spacious. The views from the floor to roof pentagon shaped window, which occupied most of the end wall, were delightful. We were able to watch birds such as, greater spotted woodpecker, redstart, pied fly catcher, dipper , nut hatch come into the garden and the stream running through it, from this window. The downstairs was open plan with a wet room, powerful shower and toilet. Upstairs a mezzanine super king size bed with a freestanding roll top bath. Everywhere was tastefully furnished Primarily we were on a walking holiday and this did not disappoint but even on the one extremely wet day we experienced it was great to stay in and watch the rain, reading our books in comfort. The welcome we all received was extensive including that given to our well behaved dog she also enjoyed her stay! We cannot recommend this more highly

The impression of space both inside and outside this property means that you will not feel the need to venture very far. It is very much a getaway, peaceful location but with two large supermarkets and a number of restaurants in nearby Llandrindod Wells a beautiful six mile drive away, you are not too isolated. We understand that we were the very first self catering guests to stay at The Barn,as the Farmhouse already offers B &B and we are sure it will it will quickly become fully booked. If you remember fondly how bright the stars used to seem at night then this is the spot for star gazing.
June 2014
This small barn has been really stylishly renovated. It's beautiful. The mezzanine bedroom is very special - waking up to the view from the enormous window is truly good for the soul. Everything in the barn is new, high quality and clean, and great thought has been put into ensuring that you are really comfortable. Sue and David are just lovely - they are welcoming and helpful. Lots of local knowledge and helpful advice. Sue's home made bread is part of the welcome hamper which is a stunner - bread, home made marmalade, butter, eggs, bacon, milk and filter coffee. Wonderful. Probably the highlight for me was the view. To be able to sit with a coffee and watch a woodpecker come back and forward for peanuts, to watch sheep wandering about and the soppy and affectionate dogs lollop around was so relaxing and joyous.

If you're looking for a quiet and secluded spot to get away from then look no further. By their own admission the owners, Sue and Dave, are new to B & B and that could be what makes them so keen. Nothing was too much trouble and we were really well looked after. We chose to have breakfast in the house rather than cook ourselves - excellent decision on our part. Sue has great attention to detail and we think that this B&B has a great future. RECOMMENDED!!!
