Drovers Retreat - Dog Friendly Accommodation near Llandrindod Wells, Powys
Drovers Retreat is our sympathetically converted 19th century stone barn at Graig Farm, in the Welsh Marches. It offers self-catering accommodation for up to four people. A travel cot and high chair are available on request. Our two acre area ‘Drovers Woodland Walk’ is livestock-free and therefore ideal for dogs to run in, off a lead. A large dog bed is available, together with stainless steel bowls and a jar or treats.
People have lived in this tranquil rural landscape for many hundreds of years. The farmhouse was built in Queen Elizabeth 1st's reign. The barn lies above a medieval Drovers Road, a few hundred yards from a Roman Road.
Feel close to this history and tranquil landscape. Walk or cycle the green lanes, forest tracks and footpaths; listen to the sounds of nature and livestock, or just breathe the clear upland air. Red kites and buzzards circle above on the thermals with their evocative cries, whilst sheep graze in the fields below.
Relax and unwind to soak up the solitude and majesty of nature at our exclusive and unique location, whilst still enjoying all the family luxury and conveniences you require in a haven of peace. Then explore the local market towns and picturesque villages.
This is Welsh Border Country at its natural, idyllic best.
Drovers Retreat is a Grade II listed stone barn converted into a perfect holiday getaway in the heart of the Welsh Borders. We believe in working with the history of the building and have retained as many period features as Building Regulations allow to keep its story alive. Conveniences of contemporary living sit comfortably within the location of the barn and reflect our life in Africa as well as our rural roots.
Drovers sleeps up to 4. All rooms lead from the spacious living and dining room; these comprise a kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms - 1 double, 1 twin.
The impressive living room, with vaulted ceiling, beams and original flagstones, has a dining area, Freeview tv, cd player, radio and a selection of games and reading material.
The whole building is well insulated, cool in summer behind the stone walls and extra cosy in a Welsh winter, with the log burner for added comfort.
A refurbished butler sink sits happily in the traditional farm kitchen which is fully equipped with electric hob and oven, under-worktop fridge/freezer, washing machine, and dishwasher. There is an energy-efficient electric clothes drier, perfect for damp coats or a full wash.
The bathroom has a thermostatic shower, and a large bath, heated towel rail and Victorian-style wash basin and wc. There is an electric shaving point and a hairdryer.
The adjoining original stone and timber barn is a wet weather haven with table football, snooker, darts and plenty of space.
