Byre – perfect for one or two couples
Encouraged by the enthusiasm of our wonderful guests we converted what was once the cowshed (or byre) into self-catering accommodation in the idyllic Brecon Beacons setting. This two-bedroom cottage is perfect for one or two couples or a family/group of four/five, and as both bedrooms are equal in size and stature, there is no need to quibble over who gets the best one!
This tastefully furnished two-master-bedroomed stone dwelling with solid oak beams throughout and flagstone floor belies its lowly beginnings. It provides an open plan living area with double height sitting room complemented by French windows looking out towards Pen y Fan and the Brecon Beacons.
A wood-burning stove ensures the place is warm and cosy should the weather be inclement with comfy seating to relax and enjoy the views, the company and the conversation. The dining area enables you to enjoy romantic meals prepared in the well-equipped kitchen; or you might choose to come back from a day out on the hills to a hearty stew that has been cooking in the oven on the wood burning stove.
A solid oak staircase will lead the way up to one of the spacious super-king bedroom suites complete with pedestal bath in the bedroom so you can enjoy a soak and the views across the valley to the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons. The en-suite is fitted with a walk-in shower, loo and basin.
Downstairs a corridor leads to the other super-king bedroom and separate bathroom, the former having French windows onto the patio and views across to the Brecon Beacons and the latter fitted with a bateau bath, separate large walk-in shower, loo and washbasin. As in our other places, towels will be provided and, for those staying for a week or more, bathrobes too.
Underfloor heating means you can kick off your walking boots at the door and enjoy the warmth permeating through the flagstones. Both French windows lead onto the patio that runs the length of the property where you’ll be able to sit outside and enjoy the changing scenery or rustle up a meal on the barbecue.
