One of two lovely converted barns close to the Brecon Beacons. A relaxing rural aspect, amongst unspoilt fields. Contemporary interior with a great lay out and a short drive from attractions and towns.

Just a few miles from the breathtaking vistas of the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park, this inviting property makes a lovely retreat for two. The cottage is set on a 7-acre smallholding with horses and sheep, which you’re welcome to visit. Just outside the picturesque village of Cwmdu, this tastefully updated barn conversion makes a tranquil getaway for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers exploring this spellbinding region. A fabulous bolthole for couples getting away from it all, the cottage features exposed ceiling beams and wonderful far-reaching views. Originally a threshing barn, this attractive property has a spacious and relaxing open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The cosy lounge is perfect for sitting back, watching a movie, or catching up with a good book. The dining area is by the French doors, providing a lovely light-filled space for sharing a romantic meal for two which you can rustle up in the thoughtfully designed kitchen. Upstairs, the delightful first-floor bedroom features a king-size bed. The bedroom has impressive, exposed beams in the vaulted ceiling, along with an en-suite shower room. French doors lead out from the dining area into the generous garden which features a patio with outdoor furniture, providing a perfect spot for a morning coffee, BBQ or a glass of wine in the evening. Cwmdu has a welcoming pub and well-stocked shop, and is perfect for exploring the Brecon Beacons. The busy market town of Llandeilo (7 miles) offers a variety of restaurants, cafes and pubs. Local attractions include the remains of Talley Abbey overlooking Upper Talley Lake (1 mile), Dinefwr Castle and Newton House, Carreg Cennen Castle, Aberglasney Gardens, Herbert’s Quarry and the National Botanic Garden of Wales (all within 16 miles).
