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

Relax and unwind to soak up the solitude and majesty of nature at our exclusive 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. 

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

We’ve had a wonderful time! You’ve provided us with memories that will last forever! We were stunned when we arrived. This place was extremely comfortable - home away from home.
