  • A Georgian farmhouse designed with rustic grandeur, perfect for a special occasion
  • The house sits on 240 acres of working farmland beside the River Usk
  • Go for farm walks or venture into the depths of the Brecon Beacons
Property code: BN164

Bring the whole family including lucky canine companions for a stay in this traditional farmhouse. Relish the rural delights of farm life before venturing into the mountains.

Close to the waterside village of Talybont-on-Usk, there are handfuls of riverside, peak-top and activity-fuelled adventures to be had nearby. Sleeping 13 across seven rooms, and three dogs, this characterful bolthole is a wonderous base for reuniting with family and friends. Enjoy adventure-filled days and sociable evenings in one of the many spacious rooms or roam the acres of farmland which surround you and make some new four-legged friends.

Wind your way down the tree-lined lane and find this chocolate-box farmhouse standing proud amidst blossom and verdant land. Step in via the pretty porch and begin to make yourselves at home, choosing bedrooms, unpacking provisions and putting the kettle on for a warm welcome. For chilly evenings after days spent exploring, light the wood burner in its charming inglenook fireplace, and cosy up for a while. The bright kitchen has a four-oven AGA so you can pile on the pans and feed everyone with ease after plating up at the large table. A second kitchen is great for storing leftovers and for packing up picnics ahead of adventures. For a post-dinner tipple make your way through to the conservatory area or throw open the doors and head outside to the fabulous, enclosed garden, a safe space for everyone to play, dine and unwind. Socialising is fun but tiring work - seven gorgeous bedrooms invite you to sink into comfortable bedding and wake feeling refreshed and ready for the day ahead. Sitting on the first floor, along with two family bathrooms and a shower room, the bedrooms are beautifully decorated with splashes of colour, and one has an exquisite hand-carved four-poster bed. There is ample on-site parking.

Avoid jumping in the car and head out to explore the extensive farmland surrounding your home from home. Chat to the owners, who will be happy to take you on a tour of their working farm and introduce you to all the fluffy, four-legged and friendly animals who also call this home. Venture further afield and explore the Brecon Beacons National Park from this amazing base. The activity centre at Llangorse Lake is just 7 miles from your door and if you fancy staying dry and enjoying a gentle day out, you can watch the thrill-seekers of the group whilst taking a gentle waterside wander. Whilst holidaying in the Brecon Beacons, you will see many a stunning view, but it’s hard to beat the panoramic scenes which reward you after climbing Pen y Fan (13.5 miles).

This farmhouse was ideal for a big family get together. Loads of space to spread out, a very well stocked kitchen and a beautiful garden for the kids to run around and explore. We managed to fit 14 around the table comfortably and they had plenty of crockery, glasses and utensils for all the cooking we required. The 10 minute walk down the canal paRead moreth to the playground and the Star Inn in the village was ideal. We would fully recommend this place and will definitely be coming back to stay! Hide

This house is vast. Works really well for a big group as there are so many break off areas, everyone has their own space. It was comfortable, characterful and well equipped. Maybe a little maintenance needed here and there but didn't take away from it being a great place to stay. Lovely canal walks to local pubs and the village. The Royal Oak at PeRead morencelli is a nice walk, about 35-40 minutes away. We all loved our stay here and would happily return. Hide
