Set in a wonderful location, a traditional stone barn with the cottage Beacons Gallop next door, converted from a range of farm buildings on a working farm and perfectly located for all types of visitors especially keen walkers and mountain bikers.  The farm is immediately on the footpaths leading straight up to the Peaks of The Brecon Beacons with Pen-y-fan and Corn Ddu raising up behind the farm and cottages so no car needed; there is also the ancient Roman Road nearby which is a relatively easy walk right through the midst of the peaks of the Brecon Beacons. The owners breed horses and on discussion visitors are welcome to bring their own horses to ride in the hills. It is only a ten minute drive to Brecon.
