We love coming to The Barn! We love the big skies, warm brews, and deep sleeps. We have been coming to give our souls a rest for about 8 or so years and it always gives us what we need.
Gorgeous accommodation and beautiful setting. Had everything we needed to help us relax and unwind. The perfect get away from it all spot.
Meg and Jonny
Our second visit to W&W, and it was just as magical as our first! We can't wait to return - everything about the farm, the barn, and the surrounds is truly perfect.
Oliver and Angela
What a stunning place to stay! Tucked away in the beautiful quiet countryside with amazing views across to the black mountains. We had a lovely stay in the Barn, spacious and well equipped, comfy bed, great amenities and a gorgeous log fire for the few chilly July evenings we had! Most welcome after some long walks and a visit to the local pub. We enjoyed a great afternoon canoeing from Glasbury to Hay followed by a look around the shops . We will definitely be back, again, thanks Matt and Polly for a wonderful stay.
Elaine from Devon
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Barn. Fantastic weather helped but the Barn is equipped for any weather - a log burner with a good supply of logs, games and comfortable beds. The look is retro, the ethos environmentally friendly and the views inspiring. Great location for walks, country pubs, Abergavenny and just about the Hay Festival. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of normal life you couldn’t beat this. A warm welcome by Matt and an excellent information book got us off to a good start and things carried on the same way. We’ll be telling our friends about it.

Our late summer family holiday at Warmth and Wonder's barn was one of the most relaxing breaks we've had in a long time. While only around 3 hours from our home just west of London, it was a total escape from the frantic pace of our usual life. A gentle charm exudes the farm as you make your way up the drive, orchard on one side and fields rising on the other to the top of the slope where the welcome of the wooden barn awaits. The view is nothing short of splendid and the eye is soothed by the sun rising or falling over the Black Mountain ridge that lies directly ahead providing the perfect accompaniment to breakfast or dinner on the terrace. The children enjoyed feeding apples to the pigs, visiting the chickens and the hammock provided them with endless entertainment. Days were spent either on horseback or trekking the mountains. The nights were cooler and we even lit a couple of log fires. Feels like a world apart - and a wonderful one.
Mark from Leeds
We have holidayed in many cottages over the years and this was hands down the best cottage we've stayed at. Everything about it was spot on. I particulalry loved the outside space (the little hut, the multiple sitting areas, the space, the quietness), however that does not belittle the inside. It is not often you can holiday in the UK with 2 teenage kids & everyone would want to stay longer. Thoroughly recommend.
Gill from Ledbury
Just what we were looking for: the seclusion, space, quality of natural/built environment and the obvious care taken by the hosts to create something special, were so welcome. We have already booked again.
Sue & Ian from Oxfordshire
Matt and Polly have created something really special at Garn Farm. It's a beautiful spot – and it was a privilege to spend a few nights there. The barn is super comfortable, with everything you need. And if it's an escape to somewhere tranquil that you are after, then this is it. Add to that tranquility the amazing views, and it all adds up to a place that is very hard to leave.
Harold from London
We had a beautiful stay at the Barn. Facing the Black Mountains, surrounded by streams, sheep, ducks and hens, the Barn is a very cosy retreat for a family of 4. A great week for walking and enjoying nature as a family.
Maureen from Oxfordshire
Really enjoyed our stay at Warmth and Wonder, the views of the Black Mountains are spectacular, the Barn cosy and the farmland to explore with pigs and chickens to feed! You have everything you need to have a restful stay and within reach of lots of walks and places of interest to visit.
Mandy from Cheltenham
What a little hidden gem. An absolutely beautiful barn with wonderful touches, both inside and out, the photos don’t do it justice. A delightfully rural location, walks straight from your door, an idyllic and relaxing break was had. Thank you. Can we keep this our secret 🙂
Susan from London
The barn is comfortable and warm and the setting is beautiful and so peaceful. Good walks from the house with great views and good access to the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons.
Will from Hampshire
I really enjoyed staying at Warmth & Wonder and would highly recommend it. It's a lovely quiet setting with great views from the veranda. The spacious open plan living and kitchen area are perfect for chatting and for not isolating the chef! Matt & Polly were very welcoming but did not intrude on our holiday at all. It's a very convenient setting for day trips and the local shop/post office, Hopes of Longtown, was very well stocked and welcoming. I would certainly visit again. Thank you.
Chris from Derbyshire
We could only book 3 nights as booked at last minute. We loved it.The views were wonderful from the decking where we had coffee and lunch when sun shone on the Saturday. The barn itself was very comfortable, huge bed, good, powerful shower over bath. Lovely touches throughout which kept it quirky but this can mean basic, but this did not apply at all here. Biking was good, if hard work coming back up the hill and walk from Longtown to Offa’s Dyke good round walk with helpful walking guides in the barn. Pub at Clodock where time had stood still but gave a good welcome and good pint. Shop in Longtown absolutely amazing. Enjoyed the home made bread, and wonderful wandering through the orchard and chatting to the chickens! Thank you, great time. We will return for longer stay.
Lliam from Sussex
We had an amazing family holiday. As parents of two young children we could not have been more comfortable in the barn. Extremely well set up for kids. The location is truly beautiful and our hosts were kind and welcoming. We could not recommend staying here enough!
Nina from Somerset
Warmth and wonder is a perfect name for the beautiful space Matt and Polly have created on their amazing land. Their attention to detail gives such a warm welcome you instantly feel at home. The wonders that are at an arms reach from the door of the Barn are captivating, you don't have to go far to be emerged in nature and wildlife. Relaxed and recharged is how we reluctantly left. We definately recommend a stay at The Barn.
Louise from Hampshire
Just returned from a lovely weekend, away from it all, at The Barn at Warmth & Wonder. This was a random choice, booked merely as a midway meeting point with family, for some 'catch up and chill time' and did not disappoint. It is in a beautiful setting... There are plenty of games, books and DVDs for all ages, if required, to while away the time, as well as some very good info on walks in and around the surrounding area plus places to visit. A weekend really was not long enough!
Isabel from London
We enjoyed our long weekend at Garn Barn very much. The Barn is beatiful, as is the land all around. It was the perfect place to visit with our kids, excellent toys inside and lots to play with and explore outside! We received a really warm welcome from Matt & Polly and family and will definitely return!
Willo from East Sussex
This is a gorgeous place to stay. We had a very snug January weekend, walking in the misty landscape and warming by the log fire. Incredibly relaxing.
