Barn
A beautifully renovated and tastefully furnished stone barn set in a tranquil hillside location on the outskirts of Brecon with stunning views of the Brecon Beacons, the Black Mountains and Hay Bluff. As one guest commented 'The Byre has all the luxury of a 5* hotel with the added bonus of being self catering'. Perfect as a bolt hole from the stresses of life where you can kick off your shoes and relax in front of the log burning stove and admire the views whilst curled up on the sofa with a glass of wine and a good book. Alternatively you can soak up the sun and the views on the decking whilst enjoying a barbecue. The Byre is also ideal for those more active types seeking outdoor pursuits such as walking, cycling, canoeing, pony trekking etc. For the culture vultures there's Llant...A beautifully renovated and tastefully furnished stone barn set in a tranquil hillside location on the outskirts of Brecon with stunning views of the Brecon Beacons, the Black Mountains and Hay Bluff.

After a full day's activity you may choose to cook a meal in the well-equipped kitchen. Alternatively, you may opt to eat out, the nearest restaurant being the renowned Felinfach Griffin just a mile away along quiet country lanes.More

You were such delightful and enthusiastic guests and I'm thrilled you had a wonderful break in spite of the weather. Hopefully Spring is on its way; it certainly feels like it as the day after you left both our goats gave birth to twins!
