  • The perfect base for exploring Black Mountain and the Brecon Beacons
Property code: BN222

Sleeping up to 22 guests, this spacious farmhouse in the heart of Brecon Beacons National Park is ideal for a multi-family vacation, or a group of friends looking to spend time together

 

Situated at the upper end of the Swansea Valley, 3 miles from the village shops and pubs of Sennybridge and Defynnog, this period farmhouse with an interconnecting barn conversion occupies a secluded location at the heart of Brecon Beacons National Park. The property has fabulous views over the wooded river valley and surrounding hills, with great walking and mountain biking directly from the house. Head up and over to the beautiful Heol Senni Valley, climb Pen-y-Fan just 6 miles east, or explore the Black Mountain 10 miles west. For less energetic excursions there are several trout fishing reservoirs nearby, while the city of Swansea – and the sandy beaches of the Gower Peninsular beyond – lies 27 miles south-west.

 

Dating from around 1620, this extensive property has a wealth of charm and character, thanks to its exposed stone and oak beams. The large, friendly kitchen is great for cooking a special meal, with a range-style oven, freestanding slate-topped island and hanging pan rack adding to the traditional farmhouse appeal. The dining room seats up to 22 guests, which is perfect for ensuring that nobody feels left out, but there is also plenty of room for people to find their own space when they need to. A comfortable beamed sitting room with a large inglenook fireplace and wood burner provides a cosy corner for anyone looking to enjoy a movie, or you may prefer to walk through from the dining room to the converted barn, which contains a second sitting/dining room, an additional kitchen and a conservatory where you can wind down at the end of the day. When it’s time to turn in for the night, a total of nine bedrooms await you, five of which are found in the farmhouse. The first is a king-size room with en-suite bathroom that is accessed by its own staircase. A further three bedrooms – a double, a twin and a family room with a double and a single bed – are accessed via a separate staircase. Additional stairs then continue up to an attic room with three single beds, although a low beam on entry perhaps makes this ideal for younger guests. Four further bedrooms are found on the first floor of the barn conversion, with a double room, a twin room, a spacious room with four single beds, and a double room that might be best for a single occupant, as the bed is pushed against the wall.

 

Outside, there is plenty of space for everyone to enjoy, although the garden is not fully enclosed. A BBQ and outdoor seating allow you to dine alfresco and enjoy the views over the valley, while younger guests will fall in love with the wild play area’s trampoline and rope swings. More fun awaits in the games barn, where you can challenge each other to table football and table tennis (although you will need to bring your own table tennis bats and balls).

Great accommodation for a big group holiday of 22. Very well equipped kitchens with plenty of pans, crockery and cutlery. Comfy beds and plenty of seating areas to socialise in. Lovely views from the garden and lots of birds on the feeders. Loved the nest box camera in the farmhouse kitchen. Great walks nearby. Had a fantastic week!

This 'cottage' is a wonderfully restored farmhouse and converted, connected barn. It was ideal for three generations to celebrate an 80th birthday (albeit 2 years late due to covid). Every decade except the 70's was represented and there was something for every generation to love from the wonderful conservatory to the trampoline; from the lambs in Read morethe orchard to the excellent cooking facilities. Lovely walks from the door suited all. We really appreciated the cooperation over changing dates too. Hide

Plenty of bedrooms/beds/bathrooms, plus 2 kitchens and 2 lounges made it easy for people to break off and not be on top of one another.

This is a well-equipped, extensive farmhouse situated in a quiet corner of the Brecon Beacons. My family have enjoyed staying here twice and would happily return. The bedrooms are clean and comfortable, the main sitting room spacious and a smaller room equally cosy, both with cheering log fires.

A stunning rural location for a family gathering. Loved the abundance of birds that can be spotted on the feeder next to the kitchen window (nuthatches, woodpeckers, goldfinches and more). You can walk straight from the property or drive to nearby locations for excellent hikes or sightseeing. The road to the property is very quiet (we only ever sawRead more a farmer and food delivery van) but is mostly a narrow single track - be warned! The houses are really well equipped and the views are to die for! Hide
