Escape to the country and enjoy a stay off the beaten track with this unforgettable self-catering accommodation, enjoying life on a working farm and close proximity to the Brecon Beacons.

Surrounded by livestock and wildlife in the heart of Powys, this converted farmhouse offers the perfect chance to get away from it all and truly unwind. Located in the Cambrian Mountains, an area once known as the ‘green desert of Wales’, you’ll find an abundance of walks from your doorstep. Keen mountaineers will enjoy exploring the local area on foot or jumping in the car to discover the Brecon Beacons National Park (20.5 miles) a little further afield. After long days of activity, you’ll no doubt look forward to a relaxing evening, visiting a welcoming local pub (3.5 miles) or checking out the independent cinema and theatre in Builth Wells (11.5 miles).

Step into this unique barn conversion to find an instantly welcome place to call home. An open-plan kitchen and dining room offers a sociable spot for two to prepare food and dine, with electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge with freezer. Continue through the property to find a charming lounge area, where comfortable seating and a small selection of books creates an inviting place to relax. Switch on the TV to flick through Freeview channels or perhaps put on one of your favourite DVDs. You’ll find a quality sofa bed here in the lounge, perfect for a couple more guests throughout your stay. This property has one bedroom which can be found upstairs on the first floor. Sink into the comfortable double bed and relax in preparation for tomorrow's adventure. The property also offers a shower room with WC.

Wander outside and soak up the sounds of the countryside, taking coffee or enjoying evening drinks on the furnished patio. The property offers a secure, shared storage space for outdoor equipment such as bikes and boats, with a handy wet room for cleaning off all of that Welsh mud.
