Red Kite Barn in the Guardian’s 50 Best Cottages

The Guardian has rounded up 50 of the best holiday cottages in the UK. Red Kite Barn, in its 80 acres of private woodland, was featured as one of the best holiday retreats for nature lovers.

"Named after the birds that sweep overhead, Red Kite Barn lies in a private forest north of Builth Wells in mid-Wales, surrounded by rolling hills. The traditional exterior hides a chic contemporary interior (and it’s eco-friendly too, with ground source heat pumps and wool wall insulation). The upstairs open-plan living area is flooded with light from windows on all sides, and downstairs there are three bedrooms (with beds rescued from London’s Savoy Hotel). But it’s the isolated location that’s the real winner: wrap up and enjoy a drink under the stars in the raised garden and forget about the rest of the world."
