Perched on a working farm just 3 miles from the market town of Abergavenny, this barn conversion is ideally located for active family holidays in the Brecon Beacons. When you’re not enjoying a tractor ride or helping tend to the sheep, set out on foot, bicycle or horseback to explore this stunning area with its forests, valleys and lakes.

Back at the property, entertain in the spacious oak kitchen or enjoy a spot of stargazing from the private hot tub. Inside, great care has been taken to retain original charm while also providing comfortable and stylish accommodation for 21st-century life. The handmade oak kitchen is a fantastic space for entertaining, with its Belfast sink with hillside views and large range-style oven. The lounge/diner is a welcoming space for relaxing after busy days, with its TV, DVD player, PlayStation and iPod dock. Offering four beautifully presented bedrooms and three bath and shower rooms, there is no need to queue in the mornings.

When the sun is shining, enjoy an al fresco meal in the garden before whiling away the evening in the hot tub with its sound system and lights. A paradise for walkers and cyclists alike, this working farm is surrounded by miles of gentle slopes, forests, trails and tracks just waiting to be discovered. One of the highest peaks in the Black Mountains, the heather and bracken-clad Sugar Loaf offers beautiful panoramic views across South Wales, the Brecon Beacons and South West England and is also home to skylarks, house martins and swallows. Take to the water for a day on Llangorse Lake (17 miles) or in wet weather take on the climbing wall at the activity centre.

Beautiful scenery, warm cosy cottage with spacious rooms. Luxury showers and bathrooms. Luxurious hot tub with stunning views. Minimal supplies and cleaning products offered but local supermarkets are approx 5-10 minute drive to local town. Be warned it is located on top of hill, steep driveway.

A truly wonderful get away, we all loved the peace and tranquility of the location but yet again we were close enough to the beautiful town of Abergavenny. We were sorry that we hadn't booked a week not a weekend in the stunning Sugar Loaf Barn.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
