A wonderful barn conversion on Tycynfin Farm, a busy working livestock farm, offering accommodation for two in the Stable, 6 in the Barn and 4 in Cynfin Old House. Boasting the most wonderful views across a wide section of the Usk valley below the Bwlch pass and views of the main peaks of the Beacons in the background.

This is an ideal location for a family or a group of friends, visiting the area or simply for relaxing and enjoying the stunning views.
