Perched on Llangattock Hillside, with breathtaking views of Sugar Loaf and the Black Mountains National Park, is this beautifully converted 16th-century stone barn. A haven for walkers and cyclists, there are countless trails and tracks in the local area, together with some of Europe’s most interesting and challenging cave networks. Back at the barn, warm up beside the roaring wood burner in the impressive open-plan living space or head outside to enjoy a BBQ with a view. Inside, this tastefully converted barn boasts spacious and open-plan accommodation with soft neutral decor and a host of additional features from a telescope to board games and books. Prepare delicious family meals in the well-equipped galley kitchen with a breakfast bar and window overlooking the garden. The spiritually soothing lounge/diner is a wonderful space for relaxing after a long day, with its dining table, wood burner, cosy sofas, TV and selection of games, books and DVD's or open the doors for access to the garden pagoda. At the end of the day climb the spiral staircase to reach the first and second floors where the en-suite twin bedroom and king-size bedroom in the eaves are located. Outside, a generous stone patio with oak furniture and a BBQ is the perfect place to spend sunny afternoons, while the fire pit allows you to sit out well into the night. Set in a peaceful and idyllic location, this property sits above the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Behind the barn itself, a large area of open access is great for cycling, horse riding and wildlife watching. For walkers, the River Usk and Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal offer tranquil and leisurely routes, while more challenging climbs can be found along the Table Mountain Path or up Waun Fach (14 miles). For amenities, the picturesque town of Crickhowell (1.5 miles) offers a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants.

We loved our stay here. It's a really beautiful location and a lovely building. It is in very good condition and very clean and tidy. The kitchen is easily well equipped enough to handle making a few family meals. It's also close to a few very nice pubs and restaurants, and the nearby towns are nice. Thanks for a lovely holiday.

A fantastic location for a really cosy barn up on the hillside. Amazing views across the valley and close to all the attractions in the Brecon Beacons and beyond. It was quiet and comfortable just what we had wanted. We would certainly recommend the barn to anyone with or without a children.

An absolutely gorgeous place hidden away in the hills. The route up is quite steep, but we were aware of this in advance and didnt have any issues throughout the week. It was also lambing season, so we were very lucky to have adorable visitors in the field next door every day!
