A super, converted barn in the Brecon Beacons surrounded by wonderful mountain views, where you can explore waterfalls, mountains and reservoirs. En route home, stop at the local pub before returning to the warmth of a roaring fire.

In the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, surrounded by mountains, reservoirs and canals, is this beautifully-converted barn. Arranged over one level, this delightful property offers light and fresh accommodation with plenty of character through exposed beams and an original stone fireplace. Spend your days browsing the streets of nearby Brecon (7.5 miles), following the canal towpath or having fun on the water before returning for an al fresco meal in the enclosed garden, which is perfect for four-legged friends.

With increased accessibility for wheelchair users, this single-storey property is ideal for romantic getaways or family breaks. Rustle up delicious meals for two in the traditional kitchen, which provides plenty of space and has a good-sized farmhouse-style table in the centre. With a large fireplace complete with wood burner, cosy soft furnishings and double doors opening onto the garden, the lounge is a restful space at any time of day. When you’re not indulging in a long soak in the bath, make the most of this property’s outside space which includes a raised herb bed, sunny enclosed lawn garden and al fresco dining area.

Just 0.5 miles from the village of Talybont-on-Usk, this property sits within walking distance of the local pubs and shop. Walkers and dogs will be in their element with wonderful walks available from the doorstep to the foothills of the Beacons. Meanwhile, gentler strolls can be enjoyed along the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal. For local history, visit Tretower Castle and Court (7 miles), White Castle (22.5 miles) and Raglan Castle (25.5 miles), or for a greater selection of amenities head to nearby Brecon and Crickhowell (9.5 miles), both of which are home to independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs.

We had a wonderful week in this fabulous converted barn. It was very comfortable, well equipped and had everything one would need to make it feel like home. The owners were kind and welcoming and showed concern for our safety when it was icy outside. The apple juice and cider made there was a delicious treat. Thank you so much Jade and Andrew

This is our perfect holiday destination. We had a lot of rain this week and the cottage is perfect if you are staying at a time when the weather is not kind. We still managed to get out every day but it is comforting to know you have a warm, cosy place to return to. The area is super for mountain biking and in the summer, motorcycling. We love seeiRead moreng the duck and chickens running around the place. Talybont has a nice cafe and a couple of good pubs. We look forward to returning again. Hide
