The cottage is situated in Abbey Cwm Hir (abbey in the long valley), a picturesque village tucked away in the Radnorshire hills with character and history, including the ruins of a Cistercian abbey where it is beleived the headless body of Prince Llewellyn (the last native Prince of Wales) is buried.The cistercian monks founded the abbey in 1143 and always liked to build in secluded places thus the village sits hidden away from the "outside world" nestling amongst the tree covered hills.
Glyndwrs way national trail and national cycle route 25 pass through the village making it a perfect base for walking/cycling and exploring mid wales and seeing nature at its best.The market town of Rhayader and the Elan Valley is 6.5 miles and the spa town of Llandrindod Wells is 9 miles. The coast is 40 miles.
The Local area is a perfect destination for anyone seeking all year round activities, whether its a gentle amble or energising mountain biking across the rugged hills, the spectacular countryside provides an inspiring backdrop for it all.
The surrounding area
The nearby 70 square mile estate of the flooded Elan Valley is spectacularly beautiful and is home to some of Britains most rare wildlife and plants along with magnificent engineering to create a fantastic experience whatever your choice of activity.
Scenic hills and valleys that are criss-crossed with footpaths, make it ideal for walkers who appreciate the unspoilt beauty of the magnificent mountain scenery, natural history and calming peace of the countryside.
Hundreds of miles of bridleways and quiet lanes, makes this the ideal base for cyclists of all ages and abilities to explore the area. Cycle hire is available and allows you to explore the spectacular views including the 13km (8mile) Elan Trail which runs through scenic countryside around the Elan Valley reservoirs. It is a safe and dedicated trail for all visitors, from walkers, cyclists to wheelchair users and children.
Hanging oak forests, rocky outcrops and unpolluted farmland make this the best place in the country to watch rarities such as red kites, peregrines, pied flycatchers and redstarts.
The surrounding countryside is home to the famous Red Kite and daily feeding can be seen at the UKs leading Red Kite Centre, Gigrin Farm just six miles away. Over 150 kites gather for the daily afternoon feeding sessions at Gigrin Kite Centre, not to mention scores of buzzards and ravens.
Amongst the other activities nearby why not visit the local Leisure Centre which is fully equipped with a gym, squash courts, pool and solarium.
For many years Welsh Royal Crystal has drawn in crowds from far and wide . Along with its on site showroom you can observe the skills of glass blowing by the nearby Elan Glass Studio.
Fifteen minutes away is Gilfach Nature Reserve where you can enjoy a unique wildlife experience set in 200 acres of dramatic countryside with a tumbling upland river, sessile oak woodland, meadows and upland moorland. The reserve provides an opportunity to explore natures rich diversity, from otters to polecats, and discover a lovingly restored Welsh longhouse

Had a fantastic stay , cottage exceeded our expectations combined with great surroundings I wouldn't hesitate to return to happy union stables for a relaxing comfortable and very enjoyable stay and strongly recommend , owners were great and welcome package was brilliant we loved the freshly baked barn bread many thanks with only one negative which was poor wifi but due to area it's understandable but maybe having own dedicated wifi in cottage would improve this but seriously not a bad point by any means because there isn't any I can think of
Fab property in a beautiful setting. 100% recommended.
Yet another fantastic stay at this holiday home. We all thoroughly enjoyed our second holiday here. The cottage is very well equipped and is a real home from home. Theres so much to see and do in the area for all ages. Our hosts were very welcoming and the cottage is a real credit to them. Im sure that we will be returning again in the near future.
We had a great time at The Barn. It felt like home from home, had everything we needed. The Barn is spacious and homely and Karen and John were around if we needed anything or information. Even though it is its quite remote you can still get to a supermarket/shop etc easily enough as its a short drive away. Great location to go walking, running and mountain biking from. Unfortunately, we had to leave early and didnt get around to doing as much as we would have liked. We would definitely return as wed like to explore the area more.
Fantastic holiday cottage, a real home from home situated in a picturesque village. The cottage was very well equipped with everything that you could possibly need for an enjoyable and relaxing holiday. The owners were very friendly and could not do enough for you. We will definitely return in the near future.
