Just perfect. Comfortable, clean, warm, well furnished and equipped all set in beautiful countryside.
we had a wonderful stay over the new year at the warren. it was like home from home. the cottage was so well eqipped and comfortable. It was immaculately kept and the hosts carol and chris couldn't do enough for you. I would certainly recommend this accommodation to anyone if looking for a quiet stay with lovely views and walks.
The property is found up a steep single track a couple of miles outside of Knighton. It is very spacious and lovely and clean, the owners take a great pride in their holiday accommodation and the equipment and bedding is of very good quality. The owners have preserved lots of character elements in the barn yet it is still nice and warm and very light. The owners live in the farmhouse next door and are on hand to help with any issues and to tell you about places to visit and eat.
We enjoyed walking further up the lane from the barn and across the fields towards Knighton with our two dogs. It is in a great location for walks, plenty of steep hills and forest walks if you enjoy a challenge. We loved our trip over to Elan Valley, about an hour away, the walk round the reservoirs was nice and flat in the main but you may want to take drinks and a pack up if you want to do a long walk as refreshments are currently only available from the visitors centre.
Just a couple of things that could have made it excellent for us, we found the master bed mattress a little soft for us and the WIFI and mobile signal was definitely hit and miss (if you don't want to be interrupted by technology then you might see this as a plus point) A bit bigger TV and fridge would be a big plus too, although both serviced our needs during our stay.
Perfectly located and very comfortable accommodation, with everything we needed for a relaxing family break in this beautiful part of the world. There was so much to see and do nearby, don't miss the stunning Elan Valley, or a walk on Offa's dyke, a trip to Powis castle with its amazing gardens and the nearby Welshpool steam railway (which gives you a relaxing way to enjoy the stunning countryside), picturesque Ludlow and its castle - we also visited Blists Hill Victorian Town, a definite favourite of our trip, and historical Ironbridge. I would heartily recommend The Warren, the hosts ensured we had everything we needed - and don't forget to stay home and enjoy the local scenery and wildlife, there was much to explore too right on our doorstep!
Great cottage, everything we needed was there and even more.Very kind and friendly owners with good advices what to do and where to go. Splendid views in the area. Absolutely worthwhile. We certainly return to mid west Wales next year.
We wanted a quiet new year break and that is exactly what we got, it is a perfect place . With a lovely log burner to top it of, the accommodation is spotless and beautifully presented with everything well thought out . There are plenty of books full of information about the area so if your planning walking no need to research to much before you go you can plan when you get there, it's just a short drive or a couple of mile walk down to the town of Knighton, we didn't bother walking as we were limited on time but no doubt in good weather it would be great. Perfect accommodation in a perfect location , and perfect hosts Chris and Carol of whom nothing is to much trouble .
A beautifully renovated barn with superb attention to detail in a lovely location. It’s only a short drive to Knighton for interesting shops, Tuffins supermarket by the Texaco garage is a fabulous place for all your shopping requirements, we were especially pleased at the wonderful selection of gluten free products. Carol and Chris were very welcoming and friendly the property is extremely well equipped and immaculately decorated. A useful selection of books and maps of the local area were available. We had a lovely time and enjoyed the stay enormously. Thank you very much.
