There is also a spacious and stylish open-plan kitchen-diner which is found three steps down from the drawing room interlinked with this is large sitting room which is a beautiful glass conservatory which houses a comfortable corner sofa and wood burning stove.

Beautiful barn, perfect for a large family group, with space to come together to eat and socialise, but enough room to have quiet time with a cosy sitting room and a comfortable tv room. The property has a lovely family feel, with beautiful paintings, quirky furnishings and comfy beds.. The views from the property are stunning - we were treated to Read moresome beautiful sunsets over the valley. Beautiful walks from the door, and Abergavenny just a short distance away for supplies.

The barn was gorgeous, my family and I loved it. It is so beautifully styled and really spacious. 9 of us easily had lots of space. The garden was lovely for our evening meals in the sun and we would happily book to come back every year. Super close to Hay on Wye for a lovely mooch. Absolutely lush weekend. Thank you!!!

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
