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.

There are five individually designed bedrooms in the barn, a downstairs double, with en-suite shower room, then four further bedrooms upstairs, including a super king size bedroom , a king-size bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a double and a twin, so something for every size of group! Each is elegantly dressed with crisp white linen, soft duvets and cosy Welsh blankets and there are a total of four bathrooms.

There is lots to do in the area, from hiring bikes and cycling into Hay on Wye, or pedal further along the Subtrans routes, hiring canoes or even Vespas from the nearby River Cafe. The Black Mountains are in very easy reach, as are the Brecon Beacons, with something available for every level of adventurer....armchair to mountaineer!

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

BROWSE FOR BOOKS: Hay on Wye is the nearest town, just 1.5 miles across the River Wye and easily reached on foot or cycle. With over thirty second hand book shops, plenty of lovely independent shops and the famous Hay Festival every May, it's one of the top places in the Welsh Borders to spend an afternoon.

FRESH AIR: The Black Mountains, forming part of the Brecon Beacons National Park are in easy reach, with spectacular walking and cycling trails and pony trekking available nearby. There is also a local gliding centre should you prefer to see the area from the air! Bike hire is available nearby.

RIVERS & WATER: The River Wye is at the bottom of the fields nearby, with canoeing hire in nearby Glasbury. Fishermen will enjoy the River Usk & River Wye for a casting day. Or check out the spectacular waterfalls in the National Park.

MARKET TOWNS: As well as Hay on Wye, there is the Cathedral town of Brecon 12 miles away, the City of Hereford with impressive Cathedral housing the ancient Mappa Mundi 20 miles away and the cute mountain town of Crickhowell just 25 minutes on the other side of the Black Mountains.

A BITE TO EAT: Voted the Best Pub of 2013 in the Good Pub Guide, the Felin Fach Griffin is within easy reach and serves delicious local food. Nip into Hay on Wye and try Richard Booth's Cafe or The Globe at Hay is a good space with kids. It's well worth a visit to The River Cafe in Glasbury for delicious coffee and cake, as well as a decent Italian lunch.

Upstairs there is one super king size bedroom, a king-size bedroom, a double bedroom, plus a twin room, plus a further 3 bathrooms. All with beautiful bed linen and towels provided.

ENTERTAINING: Huge double-height sitting room and dining room (17m in length). The dining table is a one-off made from solid oak and can seat up to thirty people. The Sugar & Loaf Team can advise on caterers too, there are some fabulous ones in the area that can rustle up anything from food in the freezer, to a fully catered dinner party.

COOKING: Beautiful state of the art kitchen, with large range cooker, dishwasher, lots of pots, pans etc. Basic kitchen supplies and local welcome pack on arrival.

RELAXING: Two sitting areas, one designed for lazing by the tv and dvd, in earshot of the kitchen, so works well when wanting to watch someone else do the cooking! There is a large, relaxing area at the end of the barn with log burning stove (logs provided), two large sofas and a number of armchairs, seating 10+ with ease.

OUTSIDE: Private and pretty, large walled garden with views of the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons National Park. There is a barbeque and outdoor seating available.

PETS: Pets are very welcome at this property, please do contact us in advance if you would like to bring more than two.

Gorgeous house in a quiet location. The house itself is beautifully decorated, very clean and well equipped. The garden has a lovely fountain and was a joy to sit in on sunny days. Would highly recommend it for large families wanting to stay near Hay on Wye.

Myself and a group of friends I went to University with had a lovely reunion at the Medieval cottage. You have a gorgeous large walled garden to relax in and a large communal space. Kitchen was well equipped with everything you could need, bedrooms were spotless and the bathrooms were lovely. Perfect quiet location if you want to play loud music orRead more if you want to relax. Ideal for us. Would definitely recommend. Hide
