Comprising a traditional Welsh longhouse and stone barn, this beautifully renovated 17th-century property makes a wonderful holiday home for a large group exploring the magnificent Brecon Beacons.
With ample space for 20 guests, this wonderful property is perfect for groups exploring the western edge of the glorious Brecon Beacons National Park. Situated in the Upper Swansea Valley, Ystradgynlais (3 miles) has some welcoming places to eat and drink. Within easy reach is the beautiful country park of Craig-y-Nos (9.5 miles) with some 40 acres to explore. Local attractions include Henrhyd Falls (9 miles), the National Showcaves Centre for Wales at Dan-yr-Ogof (10 miles), Newton House in the beautiful Dinefwr Estate (18 miles) and the magisterial ruins of Carreg Cennen Castle (15 miles). Due to the lack of light pollution, the Brecon Beacons is a fantastic area for stargazing, with daytime activities including horse riding, fishing and golf.
Retaining many original features including stone walls and exposed ceiling beams throughout, this imaginatively updated property comprises a bright and attractive farmhouse and a stunningly updated barn.

One of the triple rooms has an en-suite WC, and there’s also a handy shower room on this floor complete with shower and WC.
