This light and airy barn is set on a working farm in the picturesque Afon Crai valley, with enviable national park views. Perfect for families or couples.

The characterful barn is set in a remote location in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Sleeping eight guests, with the benefit of two additional pull-out beds, the property is extremely flexible, suiting both large families and groups of friends. The property makes the most of its surroundings, with a fabulous sunroom looking out over the countryside. Children will also have the opportunity to meet the owner’s Shetland sheep and Angora goats! The accommodation is within easy reach of the market towns of Brecon and Llandovery (14 miles). The gorgeous barn conversion is decorated in neutral tones, which enhances the period features and vibrant soft furnishings. Quirky furniture and unique accessories bring personality to the property. The cosy lounge area is a lovely place to curl up with a good book or watch the Smart TV, or alternatively relax in the bright sunroom which benefits from magnificent views across the valley. Outside, there’s a wonderful, enclosed garden with a seating area where you can unwind with an aperitif at the end of a busy day. After dinner, gather around the fire pit to toast marshmallows and reminisce about your holiday. The Afon Crai Valley is a paradise for walkers, with picturesque routes in every direction and the chance to spot a wide variety of rare wildlife, including the area’s famous red kites. Those looking for a challenge can take on Pen y Fan (13 miles), the highest peak in the national park. The climb is exhilarating, but you’ll be rewarded with jaw-dropping panoramic views. Just 5 miles away, is the small village of Sennybridge, where you can enjoy a hearty pub lunch after a long walk. From here, a scenic drive takes you into Waterfall Country – a must for the itinerary – with magical tree-lined gorges and thundering waterfalls.

Had a great week staying here in the barn. We couldnt fault it. The views are incredible and the barn is just amazing - we didnt want to leave.

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.
