You’ll certainly want for nothing with a stay here in the Brecon Beacons, finding endless walking and hiking routes from your doorstep and an unrivalled holiday home awaiting you at the end of each day. Perfect for getting the extended family together, this delectable barn conversion sleeps 11 guests in comfort. Four versatile king size bedrooms offer zip-and-link beds to accommodate a varying makeup of guests, whilst plenty of games and activities lie waiting to be discover by visitors both young and old.

Lovingly presented with vintage interiors and plenty of traditional elements throughout, it’s clear to see that no expense has been spared when readying this property for visitors. Amble on up the long farm driveway to discover the property, making a beeline for the sociable open-plan kitchen space. This bustling hub of activity features a vast dining table for 12 and plenty of amenities to feed the masses. When it comes to unwinding, three generous rooms ensure everyone has somewhere to settle down. Warming wood burners can be found in the drawing room and conservatory, whilst the den features a cushy L-shaped sofa and all the entertainment your younger visitors could ask for. Be sure to spend time together when the weather is bright, soaking up the rays in the well-furnished outdoor space with lawn, BBQ and play area for children.

Discover the border towns that lie waiting on your doorstep, stepping out in walking boots and wellies to explore. Venture towards the town of Abergavenny (6 miles) to summit the Ysgyryd Fawr and Skirrid Fawr peaks, located 4 and 7 miles respectively, or tackle the area’s iconic Sugar Loaf Mountain (9 miles). Those less inclined to spend their trip in walking boots will adore a trip to the literary town of Hay-on-Wye (15.5 miles) or charming Brecon (22 miles).

SLEEPS 2-11: 6 beautifully furnished bedrooms in total. Master bedroom with super-king size bed and en-suite bathroom, adjoining single bedroom. Four more double bedrooms made up with super king-size beds (which can be made into twins by request at the time of booking). All bedding included. Regret no party groups, including hen or stag parties.

COOKING & EATING: Hand made, huge and fully equipped kitchen. Lacanche electric range, fridge, small freezer, microwave. Massive French dining table and chairs with plenty of space for twelve people to enjoy.
RELAXING: Three lovely rooms; a more formal drawing room, with open fire, elegant furniture and a cosy atmosphere, a cosy den, with huge sofa, large tv, dvd, and Sky Sports and a large glass conservatory which houses a corner sofa and wood burning stove.
STAYING CONNECTED: Wi-fi throughout, can be patchy, so computer points in every room. Patchy mobile signal, land line available.
BATHING: Three beautiful bathrooms and one downstairs loo: en-suite with roll top bath, double basin and loo. Two upstairs bathrooms with roll top baths, showers, basins and loos.
OUTSIDE: Remote and beautiful location, with private grounds, trampoline, swing ball and sledges available (at own risk). Garden furniture and gas barbeque available in summer months. In the winter months it could be muddy and this needs to be considered when driving on the track leading to the property. Please note: to ensure the extensive gardens are well maintained for your enjoyment, the gardener may be on site working during the week
ACCESS: Due to the rural location guests are advised to use a large vehicle or 4x4 if arriving in October and up to the first week in April. The barn has a long farm driveway, which will get muddy in bad weather, so it's best to pack the wellington boots for opening the gate on arrival.

Beautiful barn, perfect for a large family group, with space to come together to eat and socialise, but enough room to have quiet time with a cosy sitting room and a comfortable tv room. The property has a lovely family feel, with beautiful paintings, quirky furnishings and comfy beds.. The views from the property are stunning - we were treated to Read moresome beautiful sunsets over the valley. Beautiful walks from the door, and Abergavenny just a short distance away for supplies.

The barn was gorgeous, my family and I loved it. It is so beautifully styled and really spacious. 9 of us easily had lots of space. The garden was lovely for our evening meals in the sun and we would happily book to come back every year. Super close to Hay on Wye for a lovely mooch. Absolutely lush weekend. Thank you!!!

We had an absolutely incredible stay at this stunning barn conversion in Wales. So beautifully decorated, super clean, very well equipped and superbly comfortable bedrooms. Possibly the best cottage we have ever stayed in and a place we would aspire to. Easilys accommodate 3 x couples and up to 5 children. Trampoline, slide, swing, small football aRead morerea, lots of odd toys & books for little ones. Endless walks, views you can't take your eyes off, books and fire. Can't wait to return! Hide

Our family group had a lovely week in this beautiful house. We really enjoyed the peace, the views and the garden for children to play in. Inside it is very comfortable with good beds and plenty of places to relax. Felt storage space was a bit lacking, both in the kitchen and the bedrooms. Our cars were OK with the steep drive, but in mud and rain Read morethey probably wouldn't have been and a 4x4 would be needed. Hide

Lovely barn/house, decorated in cottage style with quirky furniture and lots of homely touches and ornaments. Spacious downstairs and very comfortable. Outside space, and views were amazing.

The long drRead moreiveway was a little difficult with an ordinary vehicle. There was no inventory on arrival of equipment/condition as you have to pay a refundable depo Hide
