About this property

Sleeping up to 22 guests, this spacious farmhouse in the heart of Brecon Beacons National Park is ideal for a multi family vacation, or a group of friends looking to spend time together

Situated at the upper end of the Swansea Valley, 3 miles from the village shops and pubs of Sennybridge and Defynnog, this period farmhouse with an interconnecting barn conversion occupies a secluded location at the heart of Brecon Beacons National Park. The property has fabulous views over the wooded river valley and surrounding hills, with great walking and mountain biking directly from the house. Head up and over to the beautiful Heol Senni Valley, climb Pen y Fan just 6 miles east, or explore the Black Mountain 10 miles west. For less energetic excursions there are several trout fishing reservoirs nearby, along with the nearby Craig y Nos country park, while the city of Swansea and the sandy beaches of the Gower Peninsular beyond lies 27 miles south west. Dating from around 1620, this extensive property is presented over many different levels and has a wealth of charm and character, thanks to its exposed stone and oak beams. The large, open plan kitchen is great for cooking a special meal, with a range style oven, freestanding slate topped island and hanging pan rack adding to the traditional farmhouse appeal. There's a kitchen table for some guests to gather around to ensure the cooks aren't left out of the conversations. The super sized dining room seats up to 22 guests, which is perfect for ensuring that nobody feels left out, but there is also plenty of room for people to find their own space when they need to. A comfortable beamed sitting room with a large inglenook fireplace and wood burner provides a cosy corner for anyone looking to enjoy a movie, or you may prefer to walk through from the dining room to the converted barn, which contains a second sitting/dining room, an additional kitchen and a conservatory where you can wind down at the end of the day. When it s time to turn in for the night, a total of nine bedrooms await you, five of which are found in the farmhouse. The first is a king size room with en suite bathroom that is accessed by its own staircase from the sitting room. A further three bedrooms a double, a twin and a family room with a double and a single bed are accessed via a separate staircase from the kitchen. Additional stairs then continue up to an attic room with three single beds, although a low beam on entry perhaps makes this ideal for younger guests. Four further bedrooms are found on the first floor of the barn conversion, with a double room, a twin room, a spacious room with four single beds, and a double room that might be best for a single occupant, as the bed is pushed against the wall. Outside, there is plenty of space all around the house for everyone to enjoy, although the garden is not fully enclosed. A BBQ and plenty of outdoor seating allow you to dine alfresco and enjoy the views over the valley, while younger guests will fall in love with the wild play area s trampoline and rope swing. More fun awaits in the games barn, where you can challenge each other to table football and table tennis (although you will need to bring your own table tennis bats and balls).
