Part of Oak Barn & Trefaen group

Oak Barn is a wonderfully restored old stone barn, designed to an exceptionally high standard and decorated with an excellent eye for every detail. Full attention has been paid to every inch of the barn with handcrafted oak doors, well thought-out colour schemes and the very best of handmade furniture and fabrics. This Eco Barn has some lovely views across the valley, set in the idyllic peaceful and remote Crai Valley, yet on a vibrant working farm with Poplar and Beech Tree Eco Lodges and the smaller Trefaen. This is the perfect location for walking, exploring, touring and especially relaxing in the super (SHARED) HOT SWIM/SPA POOL.  Bring your own Telescope or binoculars to make the most or this designated Dark Skies Area.
