Enjoy complete relaxation on this quiet country farm in the rural hills outside Brecon. Explore what the Brecon Beacons has to offer before curling up in front of the cosy wood burner for a quiet evening with the family.

Just a few miles to the north of the Brecon Beacons, this beautiful double-barn conversion offers a relaxing atmosphere for a group of friends or a larger family exploring this stunning rural area. With ample space for up to eight guests, these two delightful properties share a connecting door making them a fantastic base for two families holidaying together. There’s also a private hot tub, children’s play area and a games room. Set on a working farm surrounded by glorious countryside, there are miles of breathtaking walks and bike trails to follow throughout this enchanting area.

The property has been imaginatively converted from former bull pens and is divided into a lower barn and an upper barn, both retaining original features including exposed beams, exposed stone walls and some low sloping ceilings. The lower barn has a spacious open-plan living area with a relaxing wood burner, TV, DVD player and plenty of seating in the lounge, a fully equipped kitchen and a charming dining table perfect for the whole group to share a favourite family meal. There are also two cosy bedrooms: a king-size room with an en-suite bathroom, and a twin room with en-suite shower room. Crossing through to the upper barn, you will find a charming first-floor lounge in the eaves of the property, with a TV/DVD, wood burner and doors leading out onto a terrace. The upper barn has a bright and fully equipped kitchen and a stylish dining area. There are also two further bedrooms: a king-size room with an en-suite bathroom, and a ground-floor twin room with en-suite shower room. Going outside, the terrace features several seating areas and a BBQ ideal for relaxing and gazing at the stunning country views. You can also unwind in the private hot tub, while smaller children play on the swings, slide and see-saw in the play area. The property has a handy games room with snooker, table tennis, pool and boules. Ample parking space is available along with two 7kw ChargeMaster ports for car charging.

This was a lovely pair of cottages with the flexibility to link as one big cottage. The rooms including bedrooms were all of good size and despite being on a farm it was a nice quite countryside location. The owners Fiona and Bryan were very welcoming and had even arranged for a local hare to visit us in the evenings.

Lovely holiday cottage with beautiful views. The property is isolated with tight lanes to approach it but the views are worth it. If you are after a quiet holiday this is the place for you.

We had a warm welcome from the owner, she also left some lovely goodies. She explained everything clearly. We felt had we had any problems, we could approach her. We loved the cottage, it was well decorated,clean & tidy. It was well equipped throughout,even down to child toilet seats .

Pretty valley, with good weather you could happily just stay on the deck. Plenty of space in the property, easy access to the hills. Narrow country lanes to approach the only drawback, for some, although generally quiet in practice.

Overall we had a great time at the Bull Pens. The buildings and surrounding area are beautiful and secluded. Our host Fiona was helpful and welcoming and showed us how to use the hot tub. Pretty much everything we needed was provided with only a couple of small issues, there was no showers in the two double bedrooms, only in the twins and we couldnRead more't find any extra toilet roll in any of the bathrooms so the supply was quite limited. Overall though I would definitely recommend! Hide
