This beautiful property is everything we think a family holiday home should be; stylish and beautiful, deeply relaxing and comfortable, welcoming of all and brimming with character and luxury touches! The barn itself sleeps up to 10, working particularly well with two families sharing, although there is the option of stretching the accommodation to sleep up to 30, please simply contact us for details.
Book for a party and you'll love the huge dining table, crafted from a single tree trunk which spans the main living space, perfect for a really special meal or two. Book as a family and enjoy the gorgeous hand made kitchen, elegant bedrooms and close proximity to Hay on Wye and activity providers.
As you enter the walled courtyard, the garden can't fail to impress, fully restored and beautifully planted, resplendent with raised fish pond, Welsh flagstones, cobbles and authentic plant borders. You'll definitely start to get that tingle that you've booked somewhere special!
Once inside, your gaze is drawn up to the fully restored oak ceiling, a testament to local craftsmanship, the beams criss cross the full length of the barn and lend an atmosphere of warmth and cosiness to a large space. In summer months throw open the oak doors that run across the barn and let the sunlight flood in, winter months, cosy up, with underfloor heating (loved by pets) and large log burning stove it's perfect for enjoying a wintery weekend in Hay on Wye.
At the far end of the barn, you'll find the soft seating area, with large sofas flanking the log burning stove, armchairs, cosy Welsh blankets and a large selection of holiday reads and magazines, designed for relaxing and chatting with friends. Further along the length of the barn is a large, deep filled sofa with a cleverly hidden large tv and dvd, which enables you to catch up on a programme or two, without disturbing anyone dozing by the fire.
The kitchen is thoughtfully designed, with large range, central island, essential dishwasher and all the crockery and cutlery you would need to entertain, caterers are available to help if needed. Moving through the kitchen you will find a boot room, with downstairs loo and washing machine, as well as lots of space for dog baskets, muddy boots and pushchairs.
