Buzzard Barn is a two bedroomed holiday cottage forming part of a traditional barn conversion set in a beautiful area of The Brecon Beacons National Park and close to The Brecon Beacons National Park Visitor Centre.

The barn dates from the early eighteen hundreds' with some beautiful old beams in the sitting room, with the high ceiling the beams are exposed giving the barn a wealth of character.         

 

 Accomodation

Sleeps 4 - 2 bedrooms interlinking 

   

There is a light and warm spacious sitting/dining room with a dining table and chairs, sofas and chairs set around an electric wood effect stove, with double full height glass doors leading out to the terrace and garden where there is garden furniture and a BBQ. There are lovely views from here out across the water meadows to the small brook and then up to the hillside beyond.

The Kitchen has an electric cooker and a four ring hob, microwave, under counter fridge with a one drawer freezer section.

 

Bathroom Downstairs- A bath with a shower over and a hand basin and a toilet.

 

Upstairs fairly steep wooden stairs to a bedroom and a second mezzanine bedroom, probably most suitable for children or younger people , accessed up a short ladder.

 

Master Bedroom 1: A double bed

 

Bedroom 2: Twin beds - this room is reached via a short ladder on a split level floor. There is a door on this room for privacy and a room I am sure children would love but care should be taken with the ladder steps.

 

A converted barn - one of four in a quiet and peaceful location just outside the small hamlet of Defynnog close to Sennybridge with miles of great walking and mountain biking. There is an excellent pub in the village called The Tanners Arms and a tearoom/restaurant with a small art gallery, The Welsh Rabbit Centre. In Sennybridge there is the ever popular Usk & Railway or The White House pubs, Glanusk Cafe and garage with a shop where you can buy almost everything and a really popular cafe offering wonderful all day breakfasts and cream teas!

A short drive from the barn across Myndd Illtyd Common to The National Park Visitor Centre where you can sit and enjoy the extraordinary panoramic views, have a coffee or a meal on the terrace and browse the shop and exhibits there and then enjoy an easy walk across the common where in the summer mountain sheep and ponies graze.

 

The medieval Church of St Cynog, is located in Defynnog and is home to what is thought to be Europe's oldest living tree -  The Defynnog Yew Tree is believed to be over five thousand years old! 

 

An easy drive down to Dan-yr-Ogof Caves and Visitor Centre so loved by children.
