Set in the grounds of the owner’s spacious country home, this pretty barn conversion makes an idyllic retreat for a family or a couple looking for a relaxing getaway in the stunning Brecon Beacons.
Lying midway between Brecon and Abergavenny (both within 11 miles), the charming village of Llangynidr is set on the banks of the Usk, with the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal rising through five locks nearby. The village has some good pubs, a shop and a cafe, and provides a fantastic base for walkers and cyclists exploring the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons National Park. Attractions and landmarks nearby include the Blaen-y-Glyn waterfalls (10 miles), Tretower Castle (4.5 miles), Llangorse Lake (7 miles) and Cantref Adventure Farm (8.5 miles). There are plenty of picturesque villages and market towns throughout the area including Crickhowell (5 miles), Talybont (3.5 miles) and Brynmawr (9 miles), all offering some excellent places to eat and drink.
Retaining a number of original features including exposed ceiling beams, stone flooring and whitewashed stone walls, this attractive barn conversion also meets green tourism standards and has solar panels on the roof, making this a cosy and welcoming holiday home. The property is arranged over a number of levels with several steps leading into several rooms. A few steps lead up into the delightful lounge which is a wonderful space to relax in at the end of a lovely day. Featuring plenty of seating, a large stone chimney, SkyTV, a wood burner-effect gas fire set in an inglenook fireplace and French doors leading outside, this is the perfect space to unwind in and catch up with a good book or watch a movie in the evening.

The washing machine and tumble dryer can be found in the utility area. Exploring the ground floor further, you will find a cosy bedroom with a circular bed and an en-suite bathroom complete with a hand-held shower over the bath. A few wooden steps lead up to a snug mezzanine floor which can be used as a study space or reading room, and has a desk in front of a window with lovely views. There’s also space here for a single Z bed if required. You will also find a pretty double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom complete with a hand-held shower and bath.
