Wonderful location, great property with mod cons, clean and very comfortable. The property has one double and 2 singles and whilst everything has a new and fresh feel, it retains the charm associated with a converted barn with beams and stone walls. We enjoyed sitting...More

Thank you for your lovely review! We would be pleased to see you back at The Byre. We always try to encourage birds of all sorts to the gardens, and have been lucky enough to see goldfinches on the bird-table this week. Regards, lesley

How to get there
Railway: Llandovery: 9.0 km
* The position on the Trip Adviser map is incorrect. We are 3 miles off the A40 to the East of Llandovery. The peace and quiet afforded to The Byre is due to it being tucked away in a valley well away from main roads, but this means that access from the A40 is along a two way, narrow lane with passing places, but several blind bends, so please do drive carefully!
From the A40 (Brecon to Llandovery road). Take the Babel/Pentre- ty- Gwyn turn off (Sat Navs may suggest other exits, but this is the recommended route). Once over the small bridge, follow the road around to the left (follow signs for Country House B&B). Continue on this lane without turning off, through the hamlet of Pentre-ty-Gwyn to Babel and turn off left at the Babel Community Hall (follow signs for Merlin Cottages)...
