This beautiful barn conversion sits in peaceful countryside yet is within 2 miles of the small town of Crickhowell. With original features complementing contemporary design, this cosy cottage is the perfect romantic hideaway for two.

This charming property is ideal for couples seeking an active holiday in the Brecon Beacons. A footpath from the property leads straight up the valley to Llangattock Mountain, where the caves of Agen Allwedd are very popular for caving. Craig-y-Cilliau, the hillside behind this delightful barn conversion, is a Site of Special Scientific Interest rich in wildlife species and a haven for nature lovers. The cottage is within easy reach of the villages of Llangattock (1 mile) and Crickhowell (2.5 miles), where there are plenty of eateries and coffee shops to visit after hiking or biking in the hills.

This lovely barn conversion, set over two floors, is full of character. Whitewashed exposed stone walls and beautiful traditional beams blend seamlessly with all the comforts of everyday living. Downstairs, the open-plan lounge has large patio doors that let natural light pour in. High ceilings in the living room give a sense of space, and the two sofas facing the wood burner are ideal for relaxing while enjoying a film on the Smart TV. The kitchen has all the appliances you need to prepare a delicious brunch or romantic evening meal. Upstairs, you’ll find a king-size bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. Head outside and enjoy the small, sheltered garden where you can fire up the BBQ and dine alfresco on fine evenings watching the sunset.

Delve into the area’s history with a visit to the Big Pit National Coal Museum and nearby Blaenavon Steam Railway, 10 miles away. History buffs should head to Raglan Castle (15.5 miles) to discover how this imposing fortress, set in beautiful countryside, became a fortress and then a regal residence. Walkers can explore the Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) National Park, where the town of Talybont-on-Usk (11 miles) is an ideal spot for trails for all abilities, including along the Brecon Canal.

Everything about the barn was as you would hope and expect. It is just as advertised. The location is perfect, away from it all, but easy to get to the local village etc. Nia and Alan are very good and helpful hosts. It is the perfect base for walking in the area, with helpful leaflets full of suggestions. A nice relaxing active break.

Cottage is in a lovely remote location surrounded by hills and countryside [and sheep!] and there is an abundance of wildlife. It has been well converted from a barn and is clean and comfortable. Crickhowell is just over 1 .5 miles by road or about 35 minutes walk using the path behind the cottage. The cottage is well placed for walks.

We have just returned from a fantastic week at Cwmbach Barn. The accommodation was comfy, spacious and well equipped, and the host was lovely. The location was just what we had hoped, being away from noisy roads and neighbours (our neighbours for the week were the sheep and the many varieties of wild birds).

Fabulous quiet location with easy access to town and all the local sights. Great walks around the cottage. Straight on to a path/right of way at the back of the cottage which is great for dog walks. Loads to see and do around the area and we plan to come back as soon as we have time. Cottage equipment and comfort was fantastic.
