A wonderfully converted barn, which retains charming original features whilst offering luxurious accommodation for a large group. An ideal rural retreat for escaping the everyday hustle and bustle.

Celebrate special occasions from the unique vantage point of this impressive property that sleeps ten in the heart of the Carmarthenshire countryside. Superb facilities such as elegant dining spaces, a bubbling hot tub and a roaring wood burner will help you ease away from the stresses of modern life, whilst the excellent location means you will soon be filling your itinerary with scenic walks, pony treks and even wild swimming if you are feeling brave.

Beneath the traditional exterior is a lavish retreat characterised by exposed stone, timber beams, split-levels and steps, all of which provide a delightful atmosphere for spending quality time with loved ones. Enter via the lower ground floor to find the first of five bedrooms, and climb the stairs to reach the living space, utility room and shower room. A cheerful farmhouse-style kitchen fit for a feast creates the perfect setting for hearty breakfasts, whilst the garden is equipped with furniture, a BBQ and a hot tub for al fresco dining and entertainment. Curl up by the wood burner in the sitting room or crack open the board games in the main lounge, retiring to the first floor at bedtime to choose from four lavish bedrooms, all of which feature sloped or vaulted ceilings. Two of the bedrooms boast their own en-suite shower rooms, and there is also a generous family bathroom.

Surprise and delight your entire party with a wide variety of activities, walking and cycling from the comfort of your doorstep, or tackling the steep Devil’s Staircase 7 miles away. Wildlife enthusiasts will adore birdwatching at RSPB Gwenffrwd-Dinas 8 miles away, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get back to nature with some wild swimming at Wolf’s Leap, 9 miles away.

Wonderful barn with everything you could think of. It really is home from home. Beautiful views to wake up to. The photos dont do the barn justice. Milk and Welsh cakes left for our arrival - a lovely touch!! Cant wait to return.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
