This former barn is surrounded by stunning countryside and has plenty to amuse guests of all ages, including a well-stocked games area and a hot tub for unwinding in style.

Get the extended family together for a stay in this magnificent property, where up to 14 guests are invited to settle in and call the place their own. Boasting plenty of amenities for guests of all ages, this charming home from home promises a warm welcome every evening after long days exploring the Brecon Beacons with picnics and walking boots in tow. Just a short journey from the towns of Sennybridge and Brecon, find everything you need close by for achieving the most idyllic Welsh stay.

 

A beautiful getaway both inside and out, this converted barn will give you a warm welcome from the moment you reach the driveway. Step inside to discover the heart of the house, a large open-plan living space with a lounge and dining room together. A farmhouse-style dining table ensures everyone has a seat for evening meals, whilst a comfortable corner sofa is the hot spot for movie nights. Throw a log or two on the warming wood burner and enjoy family time with a cosy ambience. Whilst older guests take to the contemporary and well-equipped kitchen to prepare dinner, kids will be delighted to discover pool or table football in the games area. Alternatively, a bubbling hot tub, BBQ and outdoor furniture create an unbeatable al fresco space for each and every visitor.

 

Once you’ve soaked up all of the fun activities available at home, head out on foot or in the car to experience the wonders of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Endless walking routes can be found from your very doorstep, with South Wales’ highest peak, the Pen Y Fan mountain, just 10 miles away. Those more inclined for water sport adventures should make a beeline for Llangorse Lake (15 miles), whilst a trip to nearby Sennybridge (3 miles) promises a relaxed day out. For the adventurous we are just a short distance to the New Zip Tower at Hirwaun (20 miles).
