This remote rural retreat is ideal for those looking to experience the tranquillity of the Brecon Beacons and immerse themselves in a wilderness adventure.
Enjoying a quiet rural location in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this cosy and inviting barn conversion provides a wonderful getaway for four guests. Just a mile from the hamlet of Crai, this imaginatively updated property retains plenty of its original charm, with exposed ceiling beams and stonework. The barn lies at the end of a single-track country lane and has fantastic views across the tranquil Crai Valley. Offering welcoming accommodation for couples, small families, walkers and cyclists exploring this idyllic area, the cottage is also set within Crai’s Milky Way Dark Sky Discovery Site.
Located next to the owner’s cottage, this wonderfully light-filled barn conversion features glass doors leading through to a large entrance hall and into a delightful open-plan living space. The inviting lounge is dominated by an impressive fireplace, and there’s an elegant, fully equipped kitchen and charming dining area. A handmade oak spiral staircase takes you to the two delightful first-floor bedrooms: a double and a twin, as well as the stylish bathroom. The garden features a patio surrounded by a hilly lawn. With plenty of outdoor furniture, this is a lovely spot for enjoying al fresco meals, or for staying up late into the night stargazing – astronomy equipment is provided for you to discover the stars.
Set in a remote spot in the Crai Valley, there are some wonderful drives, walks and bike trails to follow, the National Showcaves Centre for Wales (7.5 miles), the Wales Ape and Monkey Sanctuary (12.5 miles) and Pen y Fan (14.5 miles) in the area. Activities include fishing, climbing and hiking, with a range of pubs and restaurants to sample in the nearby villages of Defynnog (4 miles), Sennybridge (5 miles) and in the thriving cathedral town of Brecon (13 miles).
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
