Property code: BN285

Studded in a deep valley beneath the Brecon Beacons, this lovingly converted barn is perfect for large groups keen to swap the daily grind for scenic walks and tranquil surroundings.

This spacious and charming barn offers a serene contrast to the popular tourist hotspots of Mid Wales with its breathtaking views, soothing ambience and rustic appeal. Set within the grounds of a working farm and surrounded by seemingly endless countryside, the property sleeps 10 guests across four bedrooms and is an excellent choice for those seeking outdoor adventures with a healthy dose of local history. The market town of Brecon is a 5.5-mile drive away offering independent shops, a museum and a cathedral, but you can also get back to nature and explore off the beaten track.

 

Inside is a treasure trove of original features from oak ceiling beams to terracotta flooring, creating a traditional vibe. The open-plan living space is kept toasty and snug by a roaring wood burner whilst sofas, armchairs and a TV provides a brilliant spot to spend quality time together. Rustle up something special for dinner using the range cooker and settle down to a family feast around the table. Younger guests can escape to the snug to watch TV and play with the toys provided whilst the grown-ups appreciate a well-earned rest, and at bedtime, sleepovers are a must for youngsters in the dormitory-style bedroom on the first floor. There is a further bedroom on this level and there are two bedrooms downstairs as well as a walk-in wet room. The master bedroom has sole use of a private en-suite for the ultimate treat. Outside, two attractive terraces and a lawned area will prove tempting for BBQ suppers, and you’ll be able to explore the fields if they are not occupied by livestock.

Pack a picnic and bring along a map to navigate with ease, or play it safe and hire a walking guide to take in the sights of the tallest peak in South Wales, Pen y Fan. Nature enthusiasts should be on the lookout for the red kites, peregrine falcons and buzzards that reside in the area, and if you factor in a visit to the Talybont Reservoir 8 miles away you should be in for a treat as it is a popular pit stop for migrating birds.

The surrounding area is dotted with historic remnants dating back to the Iron Age, perfect for the history-enthusiast adventurer.
