Escape to the country! This lovely, rural location is ideal for walkers, cyclists and mountain bikers, star-gazers, birdwatchers and lovers of the great outdoors! Spend a relaxing holiday admiring the views, appreciating the Dark Skies at night, or get out and about in the surrounding countryside. The Byre is a conversion of part of a barn (the remainder used for owners' storage), overlooking open farmland and the wooded hills of the Crychan Forest beyond. Retaining some lovely beams, painted stone walls and other architectural features, this is a characterful cottage, most suitable for a couple, or family of two adults and two children. The owners live in the adjacent former farmhouse and keep free range chickens. A Welcome Pack of local produce, including some of their free range eggs, will be waiting for you on arrival.

Pets: One dog is welcome at the property but must be kept on a lead, as there are free range chickens, sheep in surrounding fields and the grounds are not enclosed
This peaceful, rural location is ideal for getting away from it all, yet it is just 5.5 miles to the small town of Llandovery, with shops, pub, eating places, supermarket, riverside walks and castle ruins. There are footpaths from the door, miles of forest walking and cycling tracks in Crychan Forest to the north and the northern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park is just two miles to the south. The market town of Brecon, with its Cathedral, is 20 miles away. The West Wales coast, with the picturesque seaside towns of Aberaeron, New Quay and Llangrannog, is around 40 miles away.

A lovely property in a beautiful setting. Everything we needed and then some Mr john pirrie - 12th August 2018
Wow!! A lovely property in a superb location, wonderful views and the owners could not have been more helpful and welcoming. The Cottage far exceeded our expectations. A very secluded location, very relaxing, wonderful walks right out of the front door. The welcoming pack including fresh eggs and home made bread was brilliant. Many thanks for a wonderful stay.Mrs S Wardman - 19th April 2017
