Also off the kitchen is also a good-sized utility space with a washing machine, freezer and additional storage space. Adjoining is a drying room for coats and boots, with a toilet and wash basin.

A hand-made, oak staircase leads to four large en-suite bedrooms. All bedrooms are beautifully renovated with great oak trusses and floors. Each has a chest of drawers and plenty of clothes hanging space.

Attractive stone windows look on to the circular front garden, offering wonderful views in every direction.

The Powys region

Aside from the wonderful walking and cycling and places of historical interest to visit, the Brecon Beacons has recently become only the fifth destination in the world to be granted prestigious International Dark Sky Reserve status, making it Wales' first International Dark Sky Reserve. This recognises the Brecon Beacons as possessing an exceptional or distinguished quality of starry nights and nocturnal environment specifically protected and preserved for all to enjoy. A series of events will take place throughout the year to celebrate this award. So, you can be active during the day and star gaze at night - enjoying spectacular views at any time!

In addition, Mid Wales and the Brecon Beacons are full of top quality suppliers that are passionate about the goods they produce whether it be crafts or food, you don't have to go far to find everything you need. Whilst out and about there are many top quality pubs, restaurants, and cafes to stop at and enjoy some great Welsh hospitality before returning to your home from home at Abercynafon.

Brecon

Abercynafon is superbly located within the Brecon Beacons, situated in a remote yet accessible setting, near the picturesque Blaen y Glyn waterfalls and designated SSI Talybont Reservoir.

For walkers there is an abundance of walks to suit all abilities. Brecon Mountain Steam Railway is a short drive up the valley. This is a very popular spot for hill walkers and mountain bikers being an easy access point on to the mountains. Talybont on Usk:7km for local shop, post office, cafe and excellent, award-winning pubs and places to eat. Brecon: 20km. The perfect centre to explore the National Park. A Georgian town with an 11th Century cathedral. Plenty of historical interest with great modern day amenities. Browse around the market and the shops or visit the leisure centre, cinema or theatre.

“Just the most perfect place to get away from it all!”

Reviewed 24 May 2013

We have stayed at Abercynafon Farm Barn so many times we have lost count. We love it here! As city dwellers this place is the perfect way to get away from pretty much everything. You are right in the heart of the Brecon Beacon's, you can walk from the cottage to Pen Y Fan (if you're feeling keen!) and there are tonnes of other walks around. The place itself is kitted out wonderfully - very spacious and homely. Log fires, BBQs and plenty of relaxing are the order of the day! [And there is no mobile reception! :-)]

“Wonderful property and location!”

Reviewed 22 May 2013

We have visited on three occasions so far, and are looking forward to staying again later this year. The property is great for a large group. Really well equipped and spacious kitchen, comfortable living area and very welcoming hosts. An environmentally friendly property powered by hydro electric power. Beautiful location with superb walking and cycling opportunities.
