“The most stylish of B&B's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

We were booked in here by the company with which we had arranged our Offa's Dyke Walk trip, and as with all our accommodation were delighted, though no other house could quite match the spectacular position and style of Tynllwyn Farm. It was just a pleasure to stay in such a wonderful house and feel the history.

It was also a pleasure to experience David's hospitality from the moment he picked us up, through the welcoming pot of tea and cake, the excellent breakfast and ultimately to the next day's packed lunch which introduced us to barra brith - a real taste of Wales.

I don't know what all the rooms in the house are like, but our double room at the front offered a wonderful view, and walking down the magnificent staircase in the morning I felt as though I had joined the aristocracy. This is one not to be missed.

Room Tip: If you get the chance, stay in the house itself in a room at the front.

We stayed at Tynllwyn Farm for 1 night in one of the holiday cottages. The cottage was lovely, really really clean and very well equipt, even fresh milk in the fridge! The bed was very comfortable, the shower was strong and hot. We took breakfast in the Farmhouse and that was very good too. Outside the cottage is a beautiful lawn with garden furniture and amazing views, I wish we has stayed longer, infact i could live in this cottage for ever! I cannot fault anything in this establishment, everything was done so well, the appliances in the cottage are top of the range, not what you usually see in holiday lets - i loved the sink!
Well done Sarah and David, and thank you for making us so welcome and comfortable.

Room Tip: if you are booking a cottage ask for one with a view of the pond.

David, thank you for a most wonderful stay during our LEJOG trip, just a mile or so from the main road and ideal for us. You made us so welcome and, of the 15 B&B's we stayed at during our trip, this was one of our favourites. Such beautiful grounds and a wonderful breakfast before heading off. We would definitely like to return one day. I would like to say that if you are in the area then do stay here, you will not be disappointed.

We arrived late after taking advantage of a beautiful "SUNNY" evening walk at a nearby lake checking out the waterfalls and wildlife.
"No problem" for David who showed to our room & quickly directed us to the local Hotel which served diner until 9 pm.
A traditionally built farm house with large rooms & squeaky floorboards set high on the hillside within the farm grounds. Our very comfortable and clean room had a magnificent view over the valley. I slept like the preverbial log and was only awakened by a distant bleating of sheep.
Breakfast was home from home for us as we love fresh fruit with our cereal and were then tempted to the fresh poached eggs with mushroom. Local honey ( I took a jar home) on the table with toast meant we had to endulge even more - perfect with good strong coffee!
By the way you DO NOT have to be a walker or Offa Dyke fan to enjoy this part of Wales there are numerous activities and attractions although if it is dry I would reccomend walking the hills with the other "sheep".
In Jane and David Emerton their conversion from farming to B. & B. plus holiday cottages was a great idea for us tourist to the area so is our gain for and a loss to the farming business - keep up the good work you are the perfect hosts!

Room Tip: Although central location this house is well away from traffic and other noise - front facing rooms...

Although not right on the Path, we stopped here overnight on completing the leg to Buttiington Bridge. Of the 12 B&Bs that we stayed in, this was the best by someway. David, the owner, picked us up at the bridge and returned us the next day (£3 each way) and he was a perfect host for the whole time we were there. On arrival we were taken aback by the Country House setting which was different from the normal B&B.
We had booked in for the 3 course evening meal (£20) and the food was superb. There was so much that we thought it was to be shared amongst 4 and not 2! The views from the house and rooms were superb and we were made to feel welcome at all times. This is the sort of place you would take your spouse for a special occasion. The packed lunch we ordered for the next day was also excellent.

Wow. My wife and I stayed here for two nights while walking Glyndwr's Way and Offa's Dyke (we took a rest day in Welshpool) and had an outstanding experience. We called David after the wettest, most difficult day of our three-week trip, and he quickly came and picked us up in Buttington--no problem getting into his car while absolutely soaking and covered with mud. The farm was purchased after WWI by David's grandfather (a veteran) and has recently been converted to a full-time hotel/B&B--and it is lovely. When we arrived he immediately took all our wet things to dry and set us up by the roaring wood stove with a pot of tea. Our room was _vast_ and clean, with an amazing shower and bathroom. Dinner was _outstanding_ (delicious! huge!), and throughout one felt there was nothing one couldn't ask of the hosts they wouldn't try to accommodate. From the farm it's a quick and nice walk into Welshpool, where you can visit Powys Castle. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again for an extended time.

Despite not being directly on the Offa's Dyke route, the option of B&B here should not be discounted. David arranged to come and collect us once we reached Buttington Bridge, and kindly dropped us off at the same spot the next morning. The house and surroundings are delightful and by far our favourite of the 12 we stayed in over the duration of our long distance walk. By arrangement, we also had an evening meal. Being served delicious home cooked food in the dining room really made us feel like Lord and Lady of the manor. I loved it and would relish an opportunity to go back for a longer stay.
