Families and friends can immerse themselves in the rural tranquillity of this wonderful Welsh property and enjoy spending quality time together in the great outdoors.

This delightful property is the perfect retreat for large groups with a passion for the outdoors. Situated in a quiet, riverside location at the end of a farm track, this sympathetically renovated barn is across the courtyard from the owners’ farmhouse, but guests can still expect privacy. With the river so close, guests can enjoy two stretches of salmon and trout fishing. Flowing through the farm’s 50 acres, the river has a spectacular gorge and 20-foot pool, which makes it perfect for canoeists and swimmers who can brave the cold temperatures. There are also miles of walking and cycling trails from your door, in addition to more well-known routes at nearby Cwm Rhaeader, a popular destination for mountain bikers. The villages of Rhandirmwyn and Cilycwm are both within 3 miles, with their village shops and pubs. Once a mining area, there are also lots of historic sites to explore nearby.

Packed with rustic charm, this property offers picturesque views of the beautiful setting as well as providing plenty of space for up to ten guests. The open-plan lounge/diner has floor-to-ceiling windows to allow guests to appreciate the stunning location during the day, but it is also the perfect place to relax in front of the wood burner of an evening. Exposed beams and floorboards add character throughout. The oak kitchen is charming and its six-ring gas hob and electric oven makes cooking for ten people easy; you can then enjoy your meal at the large farmhouse table and chairs. A handy utility room adjoins the barn, which is a great place for drying out muddy boots and wet gear. Completing the ground floor is a super-king-size bedroom (which can be made up as twins on request) and a wet room with a shower. Up the handcrafted stairs, you will find the four other bedrooms: a double room with an en-suite shower room, two king-size rooms and a twin room. All the bedrooms are well-presented and afford views of the Cambrian mountains and river. Also on this floor is a shower room with a double shower as well as a family bathroom with a shower over the spa bath.

Back on the ground floor, patio doors from the lounge open onto a large south-facing patio with a charcoal BBQ and garden furniture. This is the ideal place for al fresco dining, and as the sun sets you can make the most of the darkness by partaking in a spot of stargazing. The patio has a ramp for wheelchairs and a portable telescopic ramp provides entry into the barn. To the rear there is a lawn with a badminton net and access to the utility room and stables with safe storage for fishing equipment, bikes and canoes. There is ample parking in the farmyard which has direct access through the front door into the lounge.

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

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.
