  • Quaint 18th-century barn conversion within easy reach of the Wye Valley Walk and Brecon Beacons
  • Perfectly placed for exploring Hay-on-Wye, the literary ‘town of books’
  • Sit back and relax in your very own indoor hot tub
Property code: BN225

Dating back to 1832, this converted stone barn by the banks of the River Wye offers bags of traditional character, with an unexpected modern twist

Close to the banks of the River Wye, this charming property is ideal for celebrating special occasions and taking scenic walks across the spectacular Mid Wales countryside. Bursting with period features such as ancient oak beams yet beautifully finished with contemporary details such as underfloor heating and a fantastic indoor hot tub, it is a lavish treat for families of up to eight guests.

 

Inside, the open-plan living space offers cosy interiors and a delightful wood burner for chilly evenings. Snuggle up on the sofas with mugs of hot chocolate and delicious treats to watch films, or challenge your loved ones to a few board games. Your resident chef can whip up fabulous feasts in the farmhouse-style kitchen, so all you’ll have to worry about is opening the wine ready for meals around the table. Sliding doors lead out to a small courtyard that’s ideal for al fresco drinks, and there’s a useful downstairs utility room and shower room. You’ll feel like a celebrity soaking in your private hot tub in the spa room, which is a luxurious extra touch for your stay! At bedtime, climb the wooden staircase to find four elegant bedrooms; a master king-size with an en-suite shower room, a twin bedroom, and a king-size room that interlinks with a smaller room containing one small and one standard single bed. Completing the property is a family bathroom with a shower-over-the-bath.

 

Studded within the village of Llyswen, you’ll be well placed for adventures along the meandering river such as fishing and canoeing. A short 8-mile drive will bring you to Hay-on-Wye, a location best known for its array of bookshops and pretty eateries and Brecon (9.5 miles) has artisan shops and friendly pubs as well as access to the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal for picturesque strolls.

  • 4 bedrooms – 2 king-size, 2 twin (1 twin room has 1 standard single and 1 small 2’6” single bed)

We had a great holiday, the house accommodated two families well with everything you could possibly need. The owner was very accommodating and helpful. The pub (griffin) a two minute walk away is also well worth a visit. Good location to walk the river wye, visit Brecon, hay on wye and other locations in the Brecon Beacons.

Lovely large barn conversion with friendly owners on hand if required. Our young adults enjoyed the hot tub. It was hot whilst we were there and therefore had the windows open. Being situated on the main road through Llyswen it could get noisy as it was quite a busy road. Otherwise great base to explore from
