The cottages sleep 10 in 5 bedrooms and are stylish and newly furnished throughout, they provide all the modern facilities you'll need but retain the barn's character with the original oak beams and exposed stone walls. Situated at the heart of the owner's 220 acres organic farm in the beautiful Crai Valley, visitors to the cottages benefit from open access to the surrounding farmland.
Barley Store offers a newly fitted, modern kitchen with electric hob, oven, microwave, fridge/ freezer and washing machine. The living/dining room has a dining table with chairs, TV, DVD, CD player and a comfortable sofa.

Spend days taking picnics and exploring this wonderful organic farm or get on your bike and visit the nearby hamlets and villages. Keen fishing enthusiasts should read on as there are numerous fishing opportunities and walkers are well catered for with the largely undiscovered western side of the Brecon Beacons to explore.
220 acres of organic farm to discover - Tir Capel is a traditional family farm of some 220 acres, rearing cattle and sheep. The farm is fully organic and is part of the Tir Gofal Environmental Scheme, which helps to preserve and protect the landscape and improve the wildlife habitat. You and the family are welcome to enjoy the numerous walks through woodland and fields, as well as feeding the chickens and meeting the animals. Perhaps take some food and enjoy a picnic down by the river - a short walk from your cottage, or have a BBQ on the patio and admire the clear night skies. When bedtime comes, the cottages are situated well away from the actual working farmyard so a long, comfortable night's sleep awaits.
Barley Store - Barley Store is one of three stylish cottages converted from a range of 18th century barns in an elevated position on the farm. It sleeps two in a spacious, very comfortable bedroom with ensuite bathroom. The restored oak beams throughout, oak floors and numerous exposed stone walls retain the character of the original barn.
Flexible accommodation for up to 10 people - Another significant bonus of Llanilid Cottages is the flexibility. Two cottages sleep 4 people, with the third accommodating a further 2. This makes Llanilid Cottages the ideal choice for a holiday with the family or with friends. Corn View and Rye Barn can accommodate 4 visitors each - both are also available to book through us.
Organic farm produce delivered to your door - Tir Capel Farm produces organic meat for the award winning Graig Farm Organic Company and you are welcome to visit and sample the incredible range. Alternatively, Crai Valley Produce offer some wonderful holiday hampers made up of the finest locally sourced food and drink, why not arrange for a hamper to arrive ahead of you by speaking to the owner.
Fishing, Cycling, Walking - the choice is yours - Keen fishermen, or women need look no further for an ideal holiday cottage. There is ample opportunity for Trout fishing on the nearby Usk River and free Brown Trout fishing can be enjoyed on the river below the farm - just wander down from your cottage. Coarse fishing enthusiasts can arrange to fish at the nearby stocked carp pool.
Whilst there is plenty of walking on the farm, the surrounding area offers superb cycling on quiet country lanes and the Brecon Beacons will keep walkers of all levels occupied.
