Barley Store - A delightful 1 bedroom property within the Llanilid Cottages barn conversion.
Llanilid Cottages are three wonderful properties converted from what was once an 18th century barn in the heart of Tir Capel Farm. The cottages sleep 10 in 5 bedrooms and are stylish and newly furnished throughout, they provide all the modern facilities you'll need but retain the barn's character with the original oak beams and exposed stone walls. Situated at the heart of the owner's 220 acres organic farm in the beautiful Crai Valley, visitors to the cottages benefit from open access to the surrounding farmland.
Barley Store offers a newly fitted, modern kitchen with electric hob, oven, microwave, fridge/ freezer and washing machine. The living/dining room has a dining table with chairs, TV, DVD, CD player and a comfortable sofa.
Up the stairs to a
Bedroom 1: spacious beamed bedroom with a double bed and en suite bathroom.
The en suite has a bath with power shower over, toilet and handbasin.
The name Llanilid means 'the land belonging to the church of St. Ilid's' and the farm actually stands on an ancient Roman site - a standing stone marking a Centurion's tomb was found on the farm along with the ruins of St. Ilid's church.
Spend days taking picnics and exploring this wonderful organic farm or get on your bike and visit the nearby hamlets and villages. Keen fishing enthusiasts should read on as there are numerous fishing opportunities and walkers are well catered for with the largely undiscovered western side of the Brecon Beacons to explore.
220 acres of organic farm to discover
Tir Capel is a traditional family farm of some 220 acres, rearing cattle and sheep. The farm is fully organic and is part of the Tir Gofal Environmental Scheme, which helps to preserve and protect the landscape and improve the wildlife habitat. You and the family are welcome to enjoy the numerous walks through woodland and fields, as well as feeding the chickens and meeting the animals. Perhaps take some food and enjoy a picnic down by the river - a short walk from your cottage, or have a BBQ on the patio and admire the clear night skies. When bedtime comes, the cottages are situated well away from the actual working farmyard so a long, comfortable night's sleep awaits.
Barley Store is one of three stylish cottages converted from a range of 18th century barns in an elevated position on the farm. It sleeps 1 in a spacious, very comfortable bedroom with ensuite bathroom. The restored oak beams throughout, oak floors and numerous exposed stone walls retain the character of the original barn.
Flexible accommodation for up to 10 people
Another significant bonus of Llanilid Cottages is the flexibility. Two cottages sleep 4 people, with the third accommodating a further 2. This makes Llanilid Cottages the ideal choice for a holiday with the family or with friends. Corn View and Rye Barn can accommodate 4 visitors each - both are also available to book through us.

We had a lovely holiday in our cottage, the booking lady was very helpful and the owners of the cottage were friendly and welcoming. The cottage was very well fitted out and comfortable, the only slight problem was that the kitchen was so well kitted out that there was no empty cupboard space for our groceries!-
