Lovely place in the heart of Wales
Only negative point was the WiFi not usable... that actually turned out to be a positive point as well as this how holidays are supposed to be. But can be hard for most people I guess.

4/5 Good

Wonderful, peaceful countryside location.
We stayed in the High Barn and the location and condition of the accommodation was wonderful. The only disappointing element was that the wi-fi was not working but in hindsight this was not even that bad as it enabled a real escape and full relaxation. The town of LLandovery had all amenities needed and was only 15 minutes away. With young children the games room was a fantastic added benefit and the pool table was even level!!
