There is also a spacious hallway, fantastic wet room, family bathroom with corner bath and two bedrooms (one king-size, one single) on this floor.

The sitting room has comfy furniture, a freeview TV, DVD, basket of toys for children and enormous windows from where you can admire the truly stunning views. Despite all the mod cons, the old beams and handy nooks and crannies in the thick walls remind you that this barn has been standing a long time.

Each cottage also has a modern and attractive shower room and a good-sized entrance hall ideal for storing bags, boots and coats. The open-plan kitchen, living and dining room is upstairs to take advantage of those beautiful views, and each is very well equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, modern oven and TV with DVD player. These cottages also benefit from wide balconies, which interconnect with the neighbours making it great fun for families or friends holidaying together.

It also offers direct disabled access to the lovely indoor swimming pool next door. Vale Kennel also boasts a fantastic sunroom with fabulous views of the Brecon Beacons and a very inviting wood-burning stove. There is also a lovely attic-style twin bedroom, (accessed through a miniature arched doorway!) and a tiny upstairs toilet - this set up the perfect hideaway for older children (although a stair gate has been fitted, this is not ideal for very young children due to the steep staircase).

Location description from manager

The Wales region

Brecon is centrally positioned in the National Park and is a very popular base for walkers, mountain bikers and those who just enjoy being within the beautiful surrounding countryside with breathtaking views. The cathedral town boasts two museums - The Welsh Borderer's Museum and the Brecon Cathedral along with a shop and cafe. The bustling town centre is quaint with many individual shops and cafes. There is an annual world renowned Jazz Festival held in the town during August.

Crickhowell is a small, pretty and sheltered Georgian market town set between the lower slopes of Table Mountain and the backdrop of Llangattock Mountain with its great limestone crags. The River Usk, renowned for the good trout and salmon fishing, flows past spanned by an interesting buttressed bridge with twelve arches facing downstream and thirteen arches facing upstream. There are many excellent walks in the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons and horse riding, fishing, and canoeing can all be arranged locally.

Abergavenny is a bustling market town with a large covered outdoor market and a busy cattle market; there are ample local producers, craft and antique markets and every September the famous Abergavenny Food Festival brings together a wealth of local food producers, celebrity chefs and an enthusiastic food loving audience. This area remains a favourite base for walkers, cyclists, para-gliders, fishermen and canal enthusiasts, and there are many outdoor activity providers.

Hay-on-Wye is a popular market town on the River Wye, sitting on the border between England and Wales, at the foot of The Black Mountains. Overlooked by the fascinating 11thc. Castle, the town has a wealth of interesting old buildings and the "largest second-hand bookshop in the world" in the old cinema- one of the 30 major antiquarian bookshops, each with their own speciality. Hay-on-Wye hosts the world famous Literary Festival.

Builth Wells in the Mid Wales countryside is varied with magnificent great reservoirs using the natural shape of the landscape - now established over many years and a natural habitat for all kinds of wildlife and flora. There are great expanses of open countryside where the Red Kite (which can be viewed at close proximity in several Red Kite Centres), buzzard, kestrel and sparrow hawks wheel and hover overhead.

The Upper Swansea Valley is an ideal location for those wishing to explore this area known as 'Waterfall Country',

Monmouth takes its name from the mouth of the Monnow River, which flows into the River Wye just South of the town. Monmouth is a bustling market town with many shops and supermarkets. The pubs and restaurants provide good food. All types of outdoor activities are available, there is excellent fishing on the River Monnow and the River Wye; golf is nearby at the Rolls of Monmouth; Hot Air Ballooning at nearby Raglan and pony trekking in the area; excellent walking in the Wye Valley and the Royal Forest of Dean, exploring the Welsh Borders and Offa's Dyke Path

On the western side of the Brecon Beacons lie the old market towns of Llandeilo and Llandovery. Both are charming market towns with excellent local shops and information centres, guiding people to the numerous local places of interest such as Carreg Cennen Castle.
