Holiday Cottage, Hawking, Riding, Smallholding

The sensitively converted barn at Pen–y–bryn has been restored to a very high standard, providing two tastefully renovated cottages, one sleeping 4/5, the other sleeping 3/4. Both have a large lounge and are luxuriously decorated and fully equipped.

Pen-y-bryn is a working sheep and beef farm, which offers visitors a host of exciting and unusual activities.

There are five individual stables, and turn–out if required, so you can bring your own horse and ride the peaceful bridleways and lanes in this part of rural Montgomeryshire.

Hawking Holidays: Specialist courses are arranged for those who wish to experience or learn the art of falconry, with both birds and equipment provided. Courses range from one to four days and cover all the aspects of history, handling, feeding and flying birds of prey.

How to find Pen-y-Bryn

From the A458 4 miles west of Welshpool and 4 miles east of Llanfair Caereinion, turn south on to the B4385. Go through Castle Caereinion and continue for half-a-mile to reach Pen-y-bryn on the left.

Smallholder Holidays: If you are interested in setting up, or just learning about, a small-holding, you can attend a short course at Pen-y-bryn to learn as much as you wish. Topics covered include the basic management of all types of farm animals, sheep shearing and dressing, foot trimming, feeding, housing, grazing and showing.

Or perhaps you might just wish to use your cottage as a luxurious base from which to explore Powis Castle, the narrow-gauge steam railway, or the restored hall–house of Ty Mawr.
