Lovingly decorated barn conversion boasting home comforts for a family of four in the heart of the Brecon Beacons, with further properties hosting additional guests on this working sheep farm.

Located in an idyllic spot in the north of the Brecon Beacons, this beautiful barn conversion makes a great holiday home for couples and families discovering this stunning area. Set on a 220-acre working sheep farm with two other properties, this delightful property has been imaginatively converted while retaining many original features including exposed ceiling beams and whitewashed stone walls. The barn provides cosy accommodation for four guests, and offers plenty of opportunities to explore the farmland, go fishing on-site or discover the fantastic landscapes of this stunning national park.

Dating back over 200 years, this attractive barn conversion is reached via a couple of steps and features a cosy lounge with a pretty dining area, as well as a spacious and fully equipped kitchen. Heading upstairs, both the master bedroom and the twin bedroom offer stunning country views, have stylish en-suite facilities and low sloping ceilings with original beams. Stepping outside, a small patio to the side of the property features garden furniture and a BBQ, making it a lovely spot for al fresco meals in the evening. You can roam throughout the surrounding farmland, where children are welcome to help tend the sheep.

With the summit of Pen y Fan offering a magnificent backdrop (14 miles), this glorious area offers miles of exhilarating walks and bike trails. Local attractions include the National Showcaves Centre for Wales (8.5 miles), Henrhyd Falls (14.5 miles), the Wales Ape and Monkey Sanctuary (13.5 miles) and the Usk Reservoir, popular with walkers and anglers alike, with a plentiful supply of trout (6.5 miles).

A beautiful barn in peaceful surroundings. The property has its own old charm of small wondows and beams. Kitchen had all the modern appliances that you would want to use in self catering accommodation. Both ensuite bathrooms updated to quality standard.

Driving to and from the barn is not for a fainthearted driver as it is a steep incline, but well worth it for the views. Hide
