Property code: 42856

Nestled into the hillside with magnificent views of the Black Mountains, this accommodation is spread across two properties, the main farmhouse and a self-contained barn, both restored with every luxury in mind.

Get the extended family together for an unforgettable trip to the Brecon Beacons, hanging your hats in this unique and versatile holiday home. Boasting two properties on the same sight- the main farmhouse and sympathetically converted barn- this accommodation comfortable sleeps 10 guests. Younger visitors may be inclined to bunk down on the sofa beds, bringing the maximum guest capacity up to an impressive 14 visitors – perfect for even the largest of family groups! Residents both young and old will find plenty to see and do in the local area, with the National Parks mountains, dark skies and charming towns all close by for discovery.

Despite being two separate properties, the main farmhouse and barn conversion have both been decorated with the upmost luxury in mind. No expense appears to have been spared when it comes to farmhouse kitchens, one of which has an original Aga and TV for morning entertainment. There’s space for everyone to dine together in the dining room or outside in the private courtyard. Come rain or shine you’ll find plenty of space to unwind. Enjoy evening drinks in the private hot tub, sink into a cushy L-shaped sofa for TV watching in the snug or perhaps throw a log or two on the fire in the cosy lounge.

Set in the stunning landscape of the Black Mountains, you’ll never find yourself short of walking and cycling routes throughout the duration of your stay. Step outside with your loved ones in tow, ready to tackle the Waun Fach or Sugar Loaf Mountains, both within 30 miles. A trip to Llangors Lake (13.5 miles) is a hotspot for waterside walks or nail-biting guided activities, whilst the book town of Hay-on-Wye (5.5 miles) is close by for a much less strenuous day out.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £200 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

SLEEPING 5 - 10: Five luxury double bedrooms in total. Three large double bedrooms in the main house, all with lots of storage and cosy duvets, hairdryer available. Two large double bedrooms in the barn with large brass beds, no outside noise apart from the occasional sheep bleeting and a chorus of bird song!

ADDITIONAL GUESTS:  This is a sleeps 10 but has two double sofa beds so can take up to 14, we also have Hidden in the heart of the hills not far from Great Escape Farm , a private nest of beautiful handmade shepherds’ huts providing accommodation for 8 guests - please refer to Great Escape Glamping 42859 as needs to be booked separately but great if you have a larger party than 14.

COOKING: Spoilt for choice! The main house has a very well equipped kitchen with electric oven and hob, flat screen television and breakfast bar. The barn has an open plan kitchen with lovely oak units and an electric oven and hob.

DINING: Lots of choice again: relaxed in the kitchen of the main house, or walk through into a lovely dining room with open fire. Or in the barn with spectacular views across the mountains. Barbeque available.

RELAXING: Cosy sitting room in the main house with open fire, flat screen television, Sky TV and DVD. Upstairs den with X Box and sprawling sofas + Wi-fi. Wood burner and cosy sofas in the barn with flat screen television and DVD player as well.

KEEPING CLEAN: Luxurious bathrooms in the main house and barn, both with walk in showers and roll top baths. Upstairs loo and basin in the barn as well. Self contained laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer, perfect for stashing muddy boots.

HOT TUB: Exclusive to the house, with beautiful views over the countryside.

PETS: Very welcome however must be kept on a lead due to nearby livestock. Dogs only allowed in the kitchen area, not allowed on the furnishings, upstairs on beds or sofas. If this is ignored an extra cleaning charge could be applied.

SECURITY BOND: There is a £350 security bond for this property managed by Sugar and Loaf.

HOLIDAY PREPARATION: We would advise to contact local amenities directly, such as shops, restaurants, pubs and attractions, to confirm the latest opening times and availability.

Have just returned from a wonderful stay at Great Escape Farm. Beautiful location with stunning views. Houses very well equipped and well maintained. We had lovely weather, went for many walks and climbed Hay Bluff (great for the step count!). We will be returning! Thank you for a wonderful holiday

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.
