Your digital detox begins here...
 The Red Kite Barn is situated in its own private 80 acre woodland estate in
 Powys near Builth Wells and Newbridge-on-Wye. Above the barn are the green
 mountains of the Elenydd.

Access to the barn is via its own private track off the B4358 road near the
 village of Llanafan Fawr between Newbridge-on-Wye and Beulah.
 The nearest village of any size is Newbridge-on-Wye. If you enter the village on
 the road heading from Builth Wells, pass through and look out for the turning on
 your left, signposted to Beulah. Take that road for approximately 2.5 miles. At
 the brow of the hill, where the parish church is set back from the road on your
 right behind yew trees, take the single track lane on the right just beyond the
 church and adjacent cottage.

There is a wooden sign here for 'Red Kite Barn'. Keep going along this lane
 without deviating to the right until you come to a wooden 5-bar gate. Keep
 straight ahead after this gate until you come to another turning on your right
 [which you ignore] and a second wooden sign to 'Red Kite Barn'. Carry on
 straight ahead along the rougher track, keeping the de-forested area to your
 right, at the end of which keep going for a further 100m and you will see a
 second wooden 5-bar gate on your right bearing a sign reading 'Red Kite Estate'.
 Pass through this gateway, and head straight on, passing over a wooden sleeper
 vehicle bridge, and up a fairly steep incline [keeping your revs up!] until the barn
 appears in front of you. Pass in front of the barn at the bi-vocation of lanes, and
 park up to the right of the building. You have arrived!

Once you see the Red Kite Barn leave it on your right and continue up the track (marked or 'Conker') after a few 100 yards you with see a further sign and steps leading up to the pod - you will be able to park at the bottom of the steps

Added Covid information

In light of the Coronavirus, we are asking our homeowners to instruct their housekeepers to focus more on items that are frequently touched e.g. door handles, keys, remote controls, radios, light switches and bedside lamp switches which should be cleaned and wiped thoroughly with anti-bacterial disposable wipes. 

Current NHS guidance is that Coronavirus is most commonly transmitted via human-to-human contact and cannot survive on surfaces for long but we consider this additional cleaning a sensible precaution. 

We would suggest that you wash your hands regularly, as handwashing remains the best defence for infection prevention.

If you have any further concerns, we recommend that you bring your own anti-bacterial wipes and anti-bacterial handwash with you. 

If you do fall ill during your stay and suspect Coronavirus, or do so soon after travelling home, please do notify us immediately.

If you develop symptoms whilst you are on holiday 

Self isolate

Call 111if your symptoms get worse or persist

Visitors should inform Sea & Slate and/or the owner of property

We sadly are unable to refund you for your holiday if for any reason you cancel your break within 8 weeks arrival period – We strongly advise that you check your terms on your travel insurance as to how you may be affected if you are forced to cancel

Wishing you a healthy and happy stay

We advise that you please separate rubbish –glass in one bag, plastics in another, paper in another and non-recyclable in another and food waste in another. Recycling is very important in Ceredigion/ Carmarthenshire & Pembrokeshire and we ask please that you do this to assist our housekeepers

Wishing you a healthy and happy stay 

All the very best
