Drewin Farm is an ideal place to stay when walking the Offa’s Dyke path (just a hundred yards or so off the track). After the tough Knighton to Cwm section it was great to be welcomed at Drewin Farm by Ceinwen and Robert Richards with a plate of Bara Brith and a hot chocolate. The whole farmhouse had a homely, relaxed feel to it and our rooms were very spacious with comfortable beds and well supplied with teas (including Earl grey), coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits.
One point that some guests may need to take note of is that the stairs up to the bedrooms are wide but quite steep.
On the evening that we arrived at Drewin Farm Ceinwen was not cooking but Robert was quite happy to drive us to the nearby Mellington Hall Hotel for dinner and collect us after the meal. The food there was very good but the service was rather slow, such that we had to ask the receptionist to call Drewin Farm to delay Robert’s return trip.
Drewin Farm’s breakfast the following morning was truly excellent, served at 7:45am so that we could make and early getaway. To start there were big bowls of fresh strawberries and fruit salad. This was followed by creamy porridge (which we had requested the night before) and then all the usual cooked options up to a full Welsh breakfast - all beautifully cooked.

We stayed two nights with Cainwen Richards at Drewin Farm. It is only a hundred yards off Offa's Dyke, so very convenient, with an amazing view to the north so you can see where you've been and feel very pleased with yourself. She is a loving, sunny, warm, bubbly person, nothing is too much trouble, and the farmhouse is charming in a slightly old-world sort of way, having been in the family for generations. We were treated as friends, invited to join her and the other two guests, who are old friends of hers, for dinner at nearby Mellington Hall, and really looked after. We particularly appreciated being allowed to come back and let ourselves in for an unscheduled second night with her, as she and her friends had advised us not to try to drive home after doing the switchbacks. They were right!

My wife and I stayed here while walking Offa's Dyke and had an excellent experience. The proprietors were very welcoming to us in all our wet, muddy glory, and immediately served us an excellent tea in their kitchen (beautiful scones and cream!). The room was large and very comfortable, and the setting is gorgeous. Breakfast was delicious. Also, the shower was great! Say hello to Jess, the friendliest sheep dog in Wales.

Had the lovely pleasure of being a guest at Drewin Farm in May 2012 while walking the Offa's Dyke Path. Having being unable to make contact beforehand due to a faulty phone, I was unable to arrange for an evening meal but even on a Sunday evening with no notice my hostess was extremely obliging and served a fine light tea as she was hurrying out to Sunday evening mass and on her return most graciously put together a lovely ommelette and chips to keep the hunger pangs at bay. Had a lovely cosy single room with shared bathroom but as the other couple who were staying had an en-suite, no inconvenience there and joy of joys, no shower- had to make do with a long, luxurious soak in the bath :-)). The only drawback to be aware of is the distance from the nearest village/shop but forewarned is forewarned.

Mrs Richards is a motherly and caring host and you are certainly taken care of in her home. This is not a hotel style accommodation. You are very definitely lodging in a working farmhouse. Mrs Richards try's hard to look after everyone but you may need to fit in with the concensus view of other guests over mealtimes. And Mrs Richards prefers not to cook in the evenings unless she has seversl guests at the same time. Instead she will take you to a local hotel so you can have a meal there.
The whole place has the warm feeling of a happy functioning home and you will be well cared for. If you want a choice of menu or mealtimes or the total attention to hotel standard cleanliness you should seek out a hotel. But for an affordable, comfortable place to stay that is right on the Offs's Dyke path, Drewin Farm is hard to beat.
