This beautifully converted stone barn boasts picturesque views of the Black Mountains, perfect for a romantic retreat accompanied by plenty of nearby walks in the Brecon Beacons. Set on a working farm above the medieval village of Tretower, this cosy property enjoys an authentic countryside atmosphere. Make the most of the fresh air with a morning coffee out on the terrace. Walking enthusiasts will love the proximity of a variety of walks, from mountain paths to riverbank meanders, while foodies can appreciate nearby Crickhowell and its selection of welcoming eateries.

Through the entranceway for coats and muddy boots is a comfortable open-plan living area. Decorated with calming neutral tones, this is a cosy space to relax in after long days of outdoor pursuits. Cook up a delicious meal for two in the compact yet well-equipped kitchen which you can enjoy at the dining table by the window.

A cosy little cottage, which we found clean and well presented. The location was perfect for exploring the Brecon Beacons and the Wye Valley. The views from the front door of the property across the valley were stunning, and will stay with me for a long time.

Enjoyed a short stay on a quiet little farm with a great view south over the valley and Tretower court/castle. Sheep, lambs and cows in the surrounding fields plus a cool looking bull in the barn next door. The garden / patio is a really nice place to sit and enjoy the view and sun with an added bonus of buzzards and kites drifting past.

Awesome views of the Mountains / Valley / Tretower village - Prob the best we have ever had - Very well equipped / clean. Owners very friendly who own the working farm.

A wonderfully situated cottage with superb views. Very well designed to make the maximum use of the space, and lovely and warm. Spacious bedroom with comfortable beds, good en-suite. Access by single track roads, very few passing places. We were glad to never meet any traffic!. Short rough farm track in last few metres. Bedroom window overlooks theRead more cattle shed, probably empty later in the spring and summer, and cattle were remarkably quiet and interesting to watch! We hope to come again. Hide

Spectacular location with superb views to the South over Tretower village and the valley. The 2-bed property is well-equipped and clean and is remote and tucked away in the middle of a working farm. Don't attempt to drive there in a low-slung sports car! There are good amenities in nearby Crickhowell (7 minutes), and Abergavenny is also within easyRead more reach (20 minutes), as are Hereford, Ludlow and Leominster, (about 1 hour +/- each). Great place for solitude or sightseeing, whatever you prefer Hide
