Drovers Retreat is our sympathetically converted and eco stone barn at Graig Farm, in the Welsh Border country. It offers beautiful 4-star self-catering accommodation for up to four people. A travel cot and high chair are also available.

Ideal for couples, families, nature-lovers, walkers, cyclists and dog-lovers.

Drovers Retreat lies above a medieval Drovers road, a few hundred yards from a Roman road. Feel close to this history and wide landscape. You can 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.

Enjoy our own Drovers Woodland walk, where you can unpeel its history, whilst children and dogs can explore the regenerating wild area.

Relax and unwind to soak up the majesty of nature at our secluded and unique location, whilst still enjoying all the 4-star family luxury and conveniences you require. Then explore the local market towns and picturesque villages of the Welsh Borders- there’s more going on than you may think! 

This is Welsh Border Country at its natural, idyllic best.

Guest Reviews

Everything was First Class and very much appreciated. We and dogs enjoyed every moment of our week’s holiday. The property is a real jewel. We will come again.

Such a peaceful stay with so many thoughtful touches. We had a wonderful time exploring the nearby countryside with the life-saving map and walking books.
