Llandovery

We are situated in the Upper Towy valley an area called 'Little Switerzerland,' by the locals. It is a gateway into the undiscovered Cambrian Mountains, where red kites glide on unseen thermals and vast open moorland and moutains drop down into tumbling mountain streams and gorges.

Explore the forests, valleys and shores of Llyn Brianne reservoir in utter solitude, no crowds, no queues, just clean mountain air, beautiful scenery and a feeling of peace and tranquillity.

Rhandirmwyn means valley of the minerals where lead used to be mined in the last century, the Dolaucothi Gold Mines are close by and you can take a fascinating underground tour or try your luck at panning for gold. Search for Twm Sion Catti's cave at the Dinas Bird Reserve, there is a walk round the reserve that follows the River Towy as it cascades over huge glacial boulders, it's spetacular and Twm's cave is hidden in the hillside.

If you crave excitement and an adrenalin rush then hurtling down the new mountain bike trail at Cwm Rhayder should suffice but for those who want to take in the beautiful scenery at a more leisurely pace then walks up the the waterfall have been described by some of our guests as a hidden fairy glen.

Llandovery market town is seven miles away and has a collection of pubs, shops and a heritage centre, this truly is a land of myths and legends and here you can learn about 'The Lady of the Lake' and the 'Physicians of Myddfai.'
Rhandirmwyn has a village shop and a local pub that serves good food and a selection of real ales, Cilycwm village, which lies in the opposite direction has a lovely country pub that serves delicious home cooked food and further along the valley towards the mountains is the small village of Ffarmers where the Drovers Arms serves excellent local welsh cuisine.

Come to Penrhyn to unwind, relax by the river, try your hand at fly fishing, trek across the mountains, speed down forestry trails on a mountain bike, or seek out ancient legends and explore castles and Celtic market towns.

“Lovely Barn, Beautiful area”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2012

The barn was warm and homely with fabulous surrounding views of the countryside and river. The barn is very well equiped with everything you'd need for a self catering holiday and the owners are very helpful. The mostly open layout of the barn allows good social interaction when preparing meals and eating etc, plus the extra bathrooms and toilets come in handy for large groups. The surronding countryside and stunning walks just a short drive away were magnificent and the river gorge following the river to the left of the barn was very impressive. I would recommend this barn and area to anyone and would definitely visit again.

“Stunning views, beautiful house.... brilliant stay!'”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2012

We were made to feel really at home in and around the farm! Mic and Jacqui made sure we had everything we needed and more- put up a lovely badmington set for us which gave us endless fun in the sun. The walks and views all around were simply divine.... and the house welll the best we've stayed in in 15 years of anual holiday trips around England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

“Beautiful and so relaxing. Can't wait to go back!”

Reviewed 2 Dec 2011

Really can't wait to go back. The barn has been beautifully converted and is big enough for large groups. My wife and I went with our six month old baby who loved stroking the horses that Mick and Jackie have. Tess the sheep dog was also a big hit. The whole area is stunning with plenty of walks and other attractions to keep the whole family entertained. Mick and Jackie are the perfect hosts and we look to going back soon.
