As featured in Vogue & Conde Nast Traveller: Chic, luxurious & blissfully remote. Filled with one off finds, lovely linens and heart-stopping views. Five star and fabulously family friendly.

Relax with all the clan in a classically British converted property, conveniently located with both English and Welsh countryside lying within easy reach. There's space for all the extended family across multiple generations, as the home sleeps 11 and has a versatile selection of bedrooms, creating ideal sleeping arrangements for any family. Young and old alike will adore the endless surrounding space and remarkable views.

 

Somewhat off the beaten track, this detached property is entirely private. Your kids will be delighted to explore the nearby fields and greenery, whilst you don't have to worry about them disturbing any neighbours. The home is decorated with traditionalism in mind, utilising clean and bright colour schemes to accentuate the light and airy feel to the rooms. Adults and kids can enjoy a touch of privacy with two individual lounge areas, one of which has Sky TV and one of which features a fireplace and a small library of books to choose from. Be sure to come together to enjoy family mealtimes as the open-plan kitchen and dining room has space for everyone to sit down and enjoy, interlinked with this is a large glass conservatory which houses a comfy corner sofa and wood burning stove. A vintage oak dining table seats 12, perfect for a celebratory meal, and the beautiful farm-style kitchen has everything you need to feed all of those hungry mouths. When it comes to camping down for the night, the property is well equipped to host a wide range of families. One master bedroom is the super king-size and features both an en-suite bathroom and an adjoining single bedroom, perfect for a younger guest. Four more bedrooms make up the house, all of which can be either king-size or twin rooms due to zip and link beds. Heading outside, you'll find not only an outdoor dining table but also a stylish Rattan sofa and armchairs, perfect for enjoying a morning coffee whilst the kids bounce on the outdoor trampoline.

Please note there is a refundable £500 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

SLEEPS 2-11: 6 beautifully furnished bedrooms in total. Master bedroom with super-king size bed and en-suite bathroom, adjoining single bedroom. Four more double bedrooms made up with super king-size beds (which can be made into twins by request at the time of booking). All bedding included. No Hen or Stag parties.

COOKING & EATING: Hand made, huge and fully equipped kitchen. Lacanche electric range, fridge, small freezer, microwave. Massive French dining table and chairs with plenty of space for twelve people to enjoy.
RELAXING: Three lovely rooms; a more formal drawing room, with open fire, elegant furniture and a cosy atmosphere, a cosy den, with huge sofa, large tv, dvd, wi-fi and Sky Sports and a large glass conservatory which houses a corner sofa and wood burning stove.
STAYING CONNECTED: Wi-fi throughout, can be patchy, so computer points in every room. Patchy mobile signal, land line available.
BATHING: Three beautiful bathrooms and one downstairs loo: en-suite with roll top bath, double basin and loo. Two upstairs bathrooms with roll top baths, showers, basins and loos.
OUTSIDE: Remote and beautiful location, with private grounds, trampoline, swing ball and sledges available (at own risk). Garden furniture and gas barbeque available in summer months. In the winter months it could be muddy and this needs to be considered when driving on the track leading to the property
ACCESS: Due to the rural location guests are advised to use a large vehicle or 4x4 if arriving in October and up to the first week in April. The barn has a long farm driveway, which will get muddy in bad weather, so it's best to pack the wellington boots for opening the gate on arrival.

Situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park, this home is the perfect spot for city-based families to enjoy a true countryside break. As one of the most popular Welsh beauty spots, there is never a shortage of walking and hiking routes with views that will impress all ages. Enjoy a new way of seeing the sights with a trip 3 miles down to the nearest equestrian centre, where the whole family can enjoy a day out horse riding. It's also worth mentioning that the Brecon Beacons is a renowned International Dark Sky Reserve, and the stargazing is second to none. Due to the isolated location of the property, you won't struggle with light pollution from your back garden, meaning you can enjoy the wonders of the universe without having to travel too far from home.

We had an absolutely incredible stay at this stunning barn conversion in Wales. So beautifully decorated, super clean, very well equipped and superbly comfortable bedrooms. Possibly the best cottage we have ever stayed in and a place we would aspire to. Easilys accommodate 3 x couples and up to 5 children.

Our family group had a lovely week in this beautiful house. We really enjoyed the peace, the views and the garden for children to play in. Inside it is very comfortable with good beds and plenty of places to relax. Felt storage space was a bit lacking, both in the kitchen and the bedrooms. Our cars were OK with the steep drive, but in mud and rain Read morethey probably wouldn't have been and a 4x4 would be needed. Hide

Lovely barn/house, decorated in cottage style with quirky furniture and lots of homely touches and ornaments. Spacious downstairs and very comfortable. Outside space, and views were amazing.

Wonderful place for a family Christmas. Lots of living space and a huge table for monopoly, jigsaw, crosswords. Very wet and muddy outside, but in better weather it would be brilliant.

Had a fabulous week with our 3 grown up children and their wives and families(4 children from 1 to 4 years old). Lovely, spacious, well-equipped cottage in an idyllic, remote setting - (dodgy signal and wifi isn't great) but we drove to Raglan Castle, Beacon Park Boats(recommended) and the Brecon Mountain Railway, as well as walking round the farm Read morefields and hills. Highly recommended. Hide
