A stunning property, in a beautiful setting in the Brecon Beacons. Much to see and do from your doorstep and a well presented home, perfect for a special occasion, to return to at the end of your day.

Bettws is a sweet village in the Brecon Beacons. Country and mountain walks are right on your doorstep, with the Sugar Loaf and Skirrid nearby providing amazing scenery. Just three miles to the historic town of Abergavenny with an eclectic mix of shops, pubs and restaurants, regular festivals and markets and even a little cinema for rainy days. Nearby you can visit galleries, museums and historic castles. Interesting days out at Blaenavon Iron Works and The Big Pit or perhaps try star gazing at the Brecon Beacons Visitor Centre. Plenty of activities to enjoy including riding, golf, kayaking on the Usk and Wye or a visit to Hay on Wye the town of books, which is twenty miles away.

It is difficult not to be impressed when driving up the gravelled drive to this detached barn. Entering the double height dining room simply adds to a very welcoming arrival. The room flows to an opulent lounge with TV, with large comfortable sofas framing a warming wood burner, providing a relaxing environment any time of year. There are some stone steps down to a delightful sun room, looking out over the grounds and an ideal spot to enjoy a good book and a cup of tea. The kitchen is also a few steps from the lounge and is well-equipped for large family gatherings. It has a double electric oven and hob, microwave, coffee machine and dishwasher. A small flight of wooden stairs takes you to a large utility area with fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and handy WC. Heading away from the lounge through the dining area and up a step, takes you to the ground floor sleeping accommodation. The first room is a sweet double bedroom, with ample wardrobe space, bed linen and towels provided. There is a useful WC before reaching a pretty en-suite double bedroom with shower and WC. For entertaining the family there is a games room at the end of this hallway, which is home to a pool table. The first floor is accessed via the imposing staircase that greets you upon arrival to Kestrel Barn, alongside the dining area, with the landing stretching across the length of the building. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, with character A-frame beams and lovely rural and mountain views. It also benefits from a dressing area that leads to the large en-suite with shower and WC, both down a few steps from the bedroom. There is a further double bedroom, again with a beautiful aspect. The family bathroom is well appointed with a roll-top bath, separate shower and WC. The final two bedrooms are both twin rooms. This detached barn is a splendid holiday destination for families and couples, the wonderful location and local offerings makes this a must visit whatever the season.

Outside there are large enclosed grounds with lawn and patio with furniture. There is ample private parking which includes a carport.

This is a fabulous house in a beautiful location, convenient for Crickhowell, Abergavenny and the rest of Brecon district. It is very well equipped for 8-10 adults or a mix of 12 adults and children. Certainly one of the nicest houses we have rented.

Kestrel Barn was a perfect place for a family holiday. We were 4 generations from age 7 years up to 83 and all enjoyed the space in and around the property. It was very clean and well equipped.

Perfect for a family break, and with two young children plus two 3 month old babies it was an idilyic retreat for the new Mums with the beautiful stunning views. Will was so friendly & helpful. The little ones loved feeding the sheep and having the freedom to run around in such a lovely, safe environment.

Excellent and very well-appointed property, great facilities etc. We all had a great time and were very comfortable. This property is expensive to rent but made up for it by being so well looked after by the owners.

This is a fabulous house. We were a family of 12 including 2 children and there was plenty of kitchen equipment and room for everyone to be comfortable. The beds were very comfortable and had traditional Welsh blankets to make sure everyone was cosy. The owners were very friendly and the grandchildren loved the tractor! We had pretty dreadful weathRead moreer (rain and snow!) we found enough to do. Walking up Sugarloaf is a must, and we all loved visiting the lambs. Thank you for a great holiday. Hide

Great for a gathering or party, its all there! Very friendly owners with lots of support if needed. They also have good knowledge of the area. Well placed for walks and not too far from Abergavenny although the road is quite challenging, but then it is the hill country. Beware of other road users! If the sun shines this venue is terrific.

We had a wonderful stay at Kestral Barn.... The owners met us with a lovely welcome and although they were busy planning they left beautiful flowers and a homemade chocolate cake which was a lovely touch. The property itself is stunning and extremely comfortable..we didn't want to leave and nearly didn't due to being snowed in on day 3 of our stay.Read more The lovely log burner and underfloor heating kept us warm and there were plenty of games to keep us busy.. We will definitely be back... Hide
