Llys-Faen is a stunning converted 5* quality stone barn with hot tub in the middle of Llyswen a small riverside hamlet on the banks of the River Wye.  The barn dates back to 1832 with some wonderful ancient oak beams and home grown oak used throughout the property for the floorboards and the stairs.  The barn sits adjacent to the owner's property in the centre of Llyswen, with its village pub - The Bridgend at the end of the village.  Visitors staying at the barn have everything on the doorstep with a village shop/garage and cafe within walking distance.  Walk from the barn door onto The Wye Valley Walk or enjoy the excellent fishing (permits from The Wye and Usk Foundation), canoeing, biking and horse riding all within easy reach.  The barn is also an excellent place to stay if attending a wedding at the nearby award winning Llangoed Hall, a superb wedding venue beside the River Wye or  just enjoy a wonderful afternoon tea.  Llyswen is 8 miles from Hay On Wye ,  with the Hay Literary Festival  held in May, 10 miles from the market town of Brecon  and 12 miles from Builth Wells and the Royal Welsh Showground.

Customer Comments

  • What a delightful place to spend Christmas, home from home! The owners attention to detail is superb, the Christmas tree and beautiful Christmas decorations were delightful. It was lovely to arrive to such a spotless house with everything to hand, it was our first time in Brecon and we were not disappointed with the welcome we received from not only the owners and their family, but from the many locals we met, in particular in the Bridge End Inn which is a mere five minute walk. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the simple home-cooked dishes we had on our first evening. We had another superb meal at the Bridge End Inn in Talgarth only 4 miles away. We look forward to returning to this wonderful location and cottage sometime in the future.
