  • A gorgeously renovated traditional barn in a working smallholding
  • Less than 1 mile from the vibrant literary town of Hay-on-Wye
  • Blow the city cobwebs away with a hike in the Black Mountains
Property code: BN167

This sweet and stylish barn sits less than a mile outside ‘Book Town’. Explore the literary haunts of Hay-on-Wye and get inspired with a walk through the Brecon Beacons National Park.

The barn sits on the land of a working smallholding, so your first holiday activity may well be sampling the fresh produce. Head off for a mile’s walk into the heart of Hay-on-Wye, browse independent shops and cafes, attend a literary event, and soak in the town’s bookish history. Or take a stroll around Hay Castle, a 12th-century medieval fort and 17th-century mansion, before stretching your legs on one of the many walks that wind into the Brecon Beacons National Park.

The barn itself has been thoughtfully and stylishly converted. The rooms flow into one another, in an open-plan yet cosy design, brought together with natural tones and traditional details, like the flagstone floor. The main space is a bright sitting room, where you’ll find elegant seating, a wood burner and TV, and French doors leading out to the patio. The kitchen is a sweet space with a dining table, perfect for romantic meals. Walk through and you’ll come to your shower room and luxurious king-size bedroom, dressed with vintage French furniture and with an inspiring view of the fields to wake up to.

Outside the barn, you have your own patio area with a BBQ so you can sit out in the fresh air and enjoy your morning coffee before heading into town.

The Brecon Beacons is a vast, mountainous and rural region of Wales. Stretching 42 miles from east to west and covering an area of 520 square miles, the Brecon Beacons is dominated by the National Park of the same name. Split into three main areas, the Black Mountain in the west, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Fforest Fawr in the middle, and the Black Mountains in the east; each is a wild, bold and inspiring place to visit on holiday. With 1232 miles of public trails which includes the 95-mile-long Beacons Way, it’s a wayfarer’s delight. One of four Dark Skies Reserves in the UK (and one of 11 in the world), stargazers can delight in the open night sky, to enjoy the darkness in full splendour. The Fforest Fawr is a UNESCO Global Geopark because of its important geology and a need to conserve and protect the area from negative over development.

Stay at a self-catering cottage in the mountains and cascading woodlands or out on the moors; you can also stay in one of the Brecon Beacon’s lovely towns like Hay-on-Wye, Crickhowell, Llangorse or Brecon. Outdoor lovers will enjoy a choice of easy to challenging treks up and around Sugar Loaf Mountain, Carn Pica, Craig Cerrig-Gleisiad, Pen y Fan, or Hatterall Ridge (and many more besides). Take in uniquely Welsh attractions like Dan-yr-Ogof (the National Showcaves Centre for Wales), The Big Pit Mining Museum, Llanthony Priory, Carreg Cennen Castle, Fourteen Locks, and the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway. Wildlife abounds in the Brecon Beacons, and it’s a great place to spot red kites and discover the successful story of their reintroduction to the UK’s skies at the Red Kite Centre. There’s so much to do for outdoor lovers and extreme sports fans here, so why not book your self-catering holiday in the Brecon Beacons today?

Our holiday cottages across the Brecon Beacons have been carefully selected. From dog-friendly cottages in the countryside to large farmhouses on the mountainsides and everything in between, we have a holiday in the Brecon Beacons to suit you.
