“Unique establishment”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We booked one night B&B in Barley Suite. This is farm guest accommodation and our first experience of it. The owners employ someone else to work the farm, but they live in the old farmhouse and the suites and cottages are converted farm buildings. What they call a suite is far more than you'd expect. We had a self contained "duplex appartement" with a tiny kitchen with a micowave, toaster, fridge and sink, a living room with a wood burner, and stairs up to the bedroom and bathroom. Both the suite and the large yard outside were absolutely spotless! There is a lovely well kept garden, with some sculptures and two summer houses. There is also a sauna and hot tub. I agree with other reviewers about the obvious love and care that the owners put into their properties. The decor is beautiful, and there are ornaments here and there which you feel must have been specially chosen. The only drawback was the mattress - I woke up with backache, and it had sheets and blankets rather than a duvet which I prefer. But the bed was a superkingsize, and had a lovely carved bedhead. Towels and toiletries were brilliant, although there was no drying up towel for the kitchen. There was a gorgeous china teaset for serving tea, a cafitiere, full tea and coffee caddies with a jug of fresh milk in the fridge. Apart from the lovely woodburner, if you turn the central heating on, the place heats up like an oven in 5 minutes flat! Breakfast was served in the main house, where all the guests sit around a large table. The food was delicious and our hosts were very attentive. They are very friendly people and make you feel at home. They showed us one of their cottages - it was gorgeous and the bath had taps in the middle! Would be lovely as a romantic retreat! We will certainly be returning here. I don't think the website gives enought information.

The setting was post card perfect.

There were different shades of green of the nearby hills, tree and valley. Then there was this pretty garden. Among the colourful flowers and plants flown different birds towards the feeder. It was a joy and privilege to encounter their dance and chorus. In addition to a few well placed benches, there were two summer houses to relax with a book and a drink while takng in the view of the valley in the company of a few charming sheep and lambs. That was my favourite ways to spend an afternoon.

The cottage was clean, airy, bright and very comfortable. The bedrooms were spacious and the shower was good. The hot tub and sauna was a favourite with my husband and our two teenage sons.

Clare and Neil were so friendly and helpful that we felt we have known them a long time. They made us felt very welcomed. You could feel their love and pride of their farm and cottages in the way they attend to their garden and every small details of their cottages. Well done Clare and Neil.

This is a perfect place to get away from it all. The garden, the rolling hills and the views. It doesn't get any better than this.

We recently returned from a week's holiday at Cyfie Farm and can honestly say that it is one of the best places we have ever stayed in as regards comfort, location and personal attention. The formula is half way between B§B and self-catering, making for great flexibility and convenience. Our suite was very comfortable and was available to us all day since the rooms are cleaned while guests are at breakfast. The location is far enough off the beaten track to feel really in the country while not being too remote, and all the positive comments about the views are not exaggerated. It is all run to the highest standards, but the best aspect is the warm and personal welcome extended by Claire and Neil to their guests. The breakfasts are excellent with plenty of choice, and the dinners available at weekends are delicious and well presented (take your own wine if you want to do them justice!). There are plenty of local places of interest (castles, gardens, waterfalls etc.), and Snowdonia and the coast are also within easy reach. Seeds restaurant in Llanfyllin is the nearest good eatery, 'good' being the understatement of the year.

We have just enjoyed a perfect experience at this beautiful farm!
From the second I got out of the car I was physically stunned by the tranquility and serenity of the place.
The only sounds were the gentle bleating of the spring lambs and the sudden whooshes of the swallows passing overhead.
The views through the valley - all the way to England in the East, and from the top of the drive, the dark, brooding mountains of Snowdonia - were spectacular in the dappled Welsh sunshine.
All this serves as a counter-point to the pretty and beautifully maintained gardens, full of vibrancy, colour and perfume, blossoms spilling out in abundance and welcoming you into what feels like a secret garden, complete with a couple of private, bijou summerhouses.
Neil and Claire, our hosts greeted us with a warm, personal welcome and indulged us with a tour of the place and a few kind suggestions as to our choice of venue for our evening meal.
Our suite (The Barley Suite) was immaculately clean, 'chocolate-box cottage' cosy and an excellent example of tastefully elegant country-living.
We had booked the spa for use in the evening and enjoyed a beautiful sunset from the comfort of the hot-tub - an absolute treat!
A sound sleep was had in a comfortable and warm bed - and the gentle bird-song in the morning led to a gentle and refreshed wakening.
Breakfast was served in our hosts home and was as fresh, well prepared and tasty as anyone could ever ask for. The choice was great and the still warm, freshly baked bread rolls a real winner!
The reluctance to leave in the morning enormous - how could one tear oneself from this oasis of tranquility!
Needless to say we would be thrilled to go back again one day and I simply cannot thank our hosts enough.
I appreciate this review may seem a touch over-effusive to some - but it simply was that good and I certainly don't mind sharing that!
