A beautifully converted barn surrounded by miles of remote countryside, yet only 1 mile from the quiet village of Cilycwm. Sleeping five plus one dog, it’s an ideal escape for the whole family.

Nestled into the valley and surrounded by woodland on one side and open hillside on the other, there is ample space to roam and explore here. Enjoy walking, mountain biking, pony trekking, or bird watching - all from your doorstep. Nearby you can pan for gold at Dolaucothi gold mines (9 miles), catch your dinner with fishing at the Llyn Brianne Reservoir (12 miles - permit required), or browse the local shops of Cilycwm (1 mile).

At the heart of the house, an open-plan kitchen/diner makes a wonderfully social space to cook, dine, and relax, with a central dining table seating up to eight. From here, enjoy views over the surrounding gardens, mountains and woodland. From here, a few steps lead down to the lounge area - a striking room with an impressive vaulted ceiling. On cold winter nights, fire up the wood burner and turn the room into a cosy haven in which to snuggle - ideal for a family film night in front of a DVD. Also on the ground floor, you’ll find two bedrooms: one twin and one single. Upstairs, curl up on one of the comfortable armchairs on the mezzanine with a balcony overlooking the living space - the perfect spot for devouring a good book. The double bedroom can be found just off the mezzanine, and the bathroom is also on this floor.

Step outside into the spacious gardens enjoy the private lawn area,  with picnic table and views of the stream, woodlands and hills. . With no roaming sheep, your hound will love sniffing out adventure here. All in all a delightful spot for an al fresco evening drink. Nearby woods can be explored by guests - 18 acres of woodland with a variety of pathways. Wildlife and 15 varieties of indigenous trees with spectacular views of the Black Mountain and Pen-Y -Banc

This honestly was one of the loveliest places we have stayed in the UK. A wonderfully comfortable cottage for our small family of four, brilliant and very kind hosts and the most beautiful places to walk on our doorstep. The nearby town is fine but the actual accommodation and surrounding area to that are excellent! We will be back.
