We have just returned from a wonderful weekend at Barlings Barn. Terry and his wife made us very welcome upon our arrival and couldn't do enough for us during our stay. Everything we could have needed was available in particular the kitchen was very well equipped which made cooking and preparing food for 19 people a doddle. The swimming pool,...

We had a wonderful stay at Barlings and Terry and his wife were so accommodating. The kitchen facilities were superb, we made dinner for everyone on the saturday night. Everything we needed was there to cater for a full dinner party. Highly recommend for a group get together!

Barlings barn was the perfect place for my best friend's hen party. The accommodation was spacious, with areas of the barn being large enough for all the hens to eat and spend time together, whilst having lots of bedrooms for everybody to have their own space. The barn is very comfortable and feels like a home from home. The facilities...

About the neighborhood

Regular train service from London Euston on the Aberystwyth line to Caersws or Machynlleth stations (either is 12 miles away). The journey can be very pleasant if you plan some stopping points.
