  • Connected farmhouse and barn that creates enough space for larger groups without sacrificing privacy
  • Wild play area and games room for young and young at heart guests
  • The perfect base for exploring Black Mountain and the Brecon Beacons
Property code: BN222

A brilliant base for lovers of the great outdoors, this charming farmhouse and barn sleep 22 guests over nine bedrooms. With lots of rooms perfect for sociable days and communal mealtimes, fill the rustic, characterful home with laughter, muddy boots fresh from adventure, and two of your dogs. With a trampoline and rope swings, let little ones bounce the night away whilst you challenge competitive guests to a night in the games room. Sitting close to the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Pen y Fan is just 13.5 miles away, and Llangorse Lake is a 19-mile journey and great for days out with family and friends.

 

Exuding traditional charm retained from its earlier years in the 17th century, this beautiful farmhouse and interconnecting barn conversion commands fabulous views over the valley. Arrive at the dwelling and make yourselves at home, stocking the cupboards with provisions, choosing your bedroom and unpacking. A trio of tables caters for fun-filled sociable dinner times with everyone tucking into a feast and chatting about the adventures to come. The large kitchen, with its bright bursts of colour, has all you need to cook up a storm, with extra island space for chopping and slicing so you can have more than just one designated chef. After days in the great outdoors, head home and relax in the lounge where you can get the wood burner roaring and put on a DVD for a moment of peace and quiet. When it’s time to liven things up, head to the games barn and try to emerge victorious! Snap up the sun in the barn’s conservatory, a great spot for a morning mug of coffee if it’s too chilly to enjoy it alfresco. Completing the barn are a second kitchen and a lounge/diner, and four of the nine bedrooms. Several staircases lead to the farmhouse bedrooms where you must take care of sloping ceilings and low beams before resting your head for the night.

Great venue for large family gatherings. We stayed at Llynwin farmhouse to celebrate mums 90th birthday and had four generations of family with us. Lots of fun and laughter and memories made. The games room was a godsend for the children as the weather wasnt the best.

This proved to be a super property for a 17-strong 3 generation family holiday with ages ranging from 3 to 77.

Charming, rustic cottage surrounded by lush countryside. Many bedrooms and interesting layout kept the kids occupied for hours, and a nicely sized dining room with two tables gave enough space for all 19 of us to eat at the same time. If you like walks and wildlife (and you're not put off by a spot of rain) then this is a great place.

The location put this in the top category for those who love the Welsh...or any ..hills. Its direct access on the open moorland is very special. For large family parties such as ours, it provides space for the individuals to do their own thing without being on top of one another. The bird life too is at a different level to the countryside of southRead moreern England . BUT, in my view the house would not be suitable for the disabled or those those with balance problems.
