Sarn is a small village in Montgomeryshire near the border with Shropshire. It forms part of the ancient parish and civil community of Kerry. Sarn lies at the apex of the townships of Cefnyberin, Gwernygo and Gwenthrew.

The village lies on the A489 road six miles east of Newtown and five miles west of Churchstoke.

Less than a mile to the west is the smaller settlement of Llancowrid, also on the A489. The hamlets of City and Bachaethlon are ¾ mile from Sarn, on the minor road up to the Kerry Ridgeway.

The historic parish church is Holy Trinity, part of the Ridgeway Benefice, in the Clun Forest deanery of the Church of England's Diocese of Hereford.[1] The village also possesses a Baptist church.[2]

There is a village hall, a primary school, and a public house — the Sarn Inn.[3] A small recreation ground includes a tennis court and a bowling green.

Historic buildings in the parish include Great Cefnyberin, a Grade-II timber-framed house, which dates from the mid-16th century.
