“Fantastic”
Reviewed June 27, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at this property in May, we had no problems finding the property, Martyn (owner) was most helpful through out the whole stay. He gave us lots of advice where to go and tips on what to do which made our stay much more enjoyable...more time in the hot tub which is state of the art and very private. My dogs were made to feel very welcome and loved the fabulous walks around hay. The bed was very comfortable and and kitchen had all the mod cons...even a picnic hamper to take up the hay bluff!! Fabulous! Already planning another trip!

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is a great place to stay and Martin and Colleen are very hospital. It's lovely accommodation and gardens, very comfortable and clean, with everything you could need. The hot tub is a great bonus too! It's near to Hay but also near to the national park with it's wonderful walking. We would definitely return

“Fantastic cottage in beautiful location”
Reviewed April 21, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Little Twmp Barn exceeded all expectations and I would recommend to anyone looking to enjoy this fabulous part of Wales.

The cottage is huge and so well kitted out, everything you could wish for is provided, only omission is a dishwasher. Games, books, DVDs, new TVs, candles, full table settings, kitchen equipment galore and a beautiful picnic hamper to boot. The furnishing is of a high standard, the beds were comfy and the outdoor space and furniture is fantastic. Couldn't fault it. Thank you to the owners for a wonderful stay, we will be back!

“Stunning Location and Excellent Facilities”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

I stayed here with my wife and teenaged daughter for 3 nights over New Year's Day and would recommend Little Twmp Barn to anyone wanting to visit this stunning area. We booked it as a base to visit Hay-on-Wye and the journey was about 10-15 minutes by car.

Views of the Black Mountains from the terrace were amazing with a large open garden area.

The owners were very welcoming and have created a very comfortable and well laid out cottage. The living room is large and has plenty of comfortable seating unlike some other guest cottages we have stayed in before.

We had a very enjoyable stay and will be back.

“Beautiful Festive Retreat”
Reviewed January 4, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

A delightfully decorated barn that has obviously had an amazing attention of lovingly lavished on its design. Modern, light, warm, comfortable and cosy. The Barn is fully equipped to cater for your stay. Nestled amongst The Black Mountains this Barn ensures scenic panorarmas and fantastic walks (that our dogs adored). Martin and Colleen and Alfie the dog were perfect hosts giving a warm welcome , available if needed but affording us privacy . We thoroughly enjoyed our short time there and came home feeling content and relaxed. We will certainly want to book again during 2015.

A beautiful barn with perfect hosts. Little Tymp Barn has clearly had a lot of thought and care put into it. Ideal for families with young children. Kitted out with a travel cot, high chair, kids DVDs, toys and Alfie the dog, who is the perfect companion for small children. A real treat for the adults too. Huge garden, Mediterranean-style veranda, wood-burning stove and beautifully decorated rooms made this holiday very special. Thank you Martin and Colleen.

Colleen and Martin were very helpful from our first enquiry about the property and made sure we were happy and comfortable. Alfie the dog makes you feel very welcome. The garden is lovely, the views are amazing and there are very good places to eat locally.
The Little Twmp Barn has everything that you could want and, as we stayed in October for a white water rafting session, we were very grateful that it was warm and cosy. We loved the log burner. A very good place to stay with plenty of things to do nearby. We were very pleased that we had come.
