Cynfin Barn (CYNFB)
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
A wonderful barn conversion on Tycynfin Farm, offering accommodation for two in the Stable and for 6 in the Barn. Boasting the most wonderful views across a wide section of the Usk valley below the Bwlch pass and views of the main peaks of the Beacons in the background. The barn nestles on the slopes of the Black Mountains above the picturesque village of Tretower, with it's fascinating fully restored medieval Manorhouse and tower- the remains of the Norman motte and bailey. This really is a wonderful place to stay, an ideal location for a family or a group of friends, visiting the area or simply for relaxing and enjoying the stunning views. An extensive range of footpaths can be reached from the owners' land, (so no need to get in the car), such as The Beacons Way, and along the Black Mountains -to Hay on Wye in one direction and beyond Crickhowell in the other.
The building has been very well restored retaining the lovely ancient oak beams and much of the original stonework. Warm and comfortable with underfloor heating beneath pale oak floors and new good quality furnishings throughout.
Cwmdu village with the nearest pub is 1 mile across the fields, or about 2 miles away by road. There is also the excellent Nant-y-Fin restaurant just over a one mile away, on the road to the popular market town of Crickhowell, with it's independent shops and good pubs and restaurants, which is 3 miles away.
