A stunning 17th Century, Grade II listed farmhouse, nestled in the Radnorshire hills. Just a short drive from the Brecon Beacons National Park and the literary town of Hay-on-Wye.

Traditional character and authentic style reveal themselves around every corner of this stunning 17th-century, Grade II-listed farmhouse in the Brecon Beacons. Sleeping eight people across four bedrooms and welcoming two dogs, this quirky property is the perfect accommodation option for large family gatherings or group getaways. Surrounded by peaceful, sheep-dotted, rolling hills, this farmhouse is the ideal accommodation choice for groups who want to make the very most of their time exploring the untamed beauty of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Radnor Forest and the River Wye Valley.

Step inside this historic property and you’ll find yourself in a welcoming boot room. Kick off your shoes and wander towards the heart of the home – the large family kitchen/diner. Cook up a feast for your party and host a dinner party around the large dining table in front of the wood burner-effect oil fire in the property’s original 17th-century fireplace. Alternatively, head out onto the property’s stone terrace to strike up the BBQ and dine alfresco. You can always make your way to the property’s terrace, which features lovely views over the surrounding hills, for a glass of something chilled after dinner. Later in the evening, make your way to the cosy main lounge and relax in front of the TV, or head up the stairs to the second lounge, which is ideal for late night splinter groups. At the end of the day there are four gorgeous bedrooms to choose from – one of which boasts glorious Jacobean beads and one of which has lovely Edwardian beds. In the morning, head up to the top garden and you’ll find a small pond, which is sure to delight any younger visitors in the group – just make sure there is an adult with them at all times.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

History buffs will enjoy a trip to Hay Castle (5.5 miles), one of the great medieval defence structures on the border between England and Wales that’s survived to tell its tale. You should also grab the opportunity to see Arthur's Stone (12 miles), a Neolithic burial chamber made of great stone slabs, set in the hills above Herefordshire's Golden Valley. This atmospheric tomb has been linked to King Arthur since before the 13th century. Outdoors enthusiasts will adore the hike up the Black Hill (11.5 miles), which has to be one of the most spectacular Black Mountain walks in South Wales. Any antique-hunters in the group looking for treasures should head to Builth Wells (13.5 miles), where pretty Victorian storefronts pepper the streets, while keen mountain-bikers should make a beeline for BikePark Wales in Merthyr Tydfil (42 miles), where you’ll find an incredible network of trails for riders of all abilities.

Such a wonderful cottage in a fantastic part of Wales. Having the moors to walk and Hay so close by is amazing too. The cottage is beautifully decorated and had all the mod cons.
