This luxury holiday accommodation in the heart of the Swansea Valleys is the perfect countryside retreat, complete with stone circle, outdoor sheltered seating area and wigwam.
A beautifully presented 17th-century barn conversion with sweeping views of the Swansea Valleys. This elegant country hideaway is perfect for a special gathering with family and friends. Venture into the mysterious winding caverns of Dan Yr Ogof Showcaves and stand behind the cascading waterfalls in the Dome of St Paul’s, before ending the day with a restorative soak in the quirky outdoor cast iron hot tubs as the sun dips below the horizon.
Renovated in 2021, this rural gem features a grand open-plan interior with feature exposed stone walls, high vaulted ceilings, and earthy wooden and leather textures throughout. Step inside the light-flooded kitchen/diner and stock up the shaker-style cabinets with locally sourced goodies. Lounge on the leather sofa with an aperitif while the resident chef cooks up a storm, then pop a bottle and gather your nearest and dearest to dine around the wooden table. Step down through the stone archway to the lounge, throw another log on the wood burner, and unwind with a family games night or enjoy a film on the wall-mounted Smart TV. Retreat downstairs to find an adaptable super-king/twin and a double, as well as a ‘Jack and Jill’ shower room. Upstairs on the mezzanine floor is the en-suite king with an elegant freestanding bath. Dive into an al fresco breakfast on the patio or explore the grounds and discover the stone circle, a wigwam, and a romantic wooden structure.
Lace up the hiking boots, grab the compass, and set off along one of the hilltop trails winding through the Black Mountains, within 5 miles, or for a gentler pace amble along the St Illtyd's Walk from Pontardawe, 4 miles, and glimpse the Penlle'r Castell ruin. Soak up some culture with a visit to Swansea City, 13 miles, and scope out the best local eateries serving seasonal menus and fine wine.
