Location description from owner
The Wales region
This Llanwrtyd Wells accommodation is located about 1.5 miles from the small town of Llanwrtyd Wells which has several pubs, restaurants, and small shops. Llanwrtyd lies between the Brecon Breacons and the Elan Valley in a area of outstanding natural beauty and wilderness. The cottage is within a beautiful valley that has been classed a site of special scientific interest due to the diverse range of many rare birds, animals and plants. The cottage is mainly detached although is linked to another building via some old farm outbuildings.Right in the heart of Wales, this Llanwrtyd Wells accommodation is the perfect location for exploring the Brecon Beacons, Cambrian Mountains and the hills, valleys and forests that are the great outdoors of Mid Wales, as well as the nearby towns of Builth Wells, Llandovery and Brecon. In Victorian times, Llanwrtyd Wells was a fashionable spa town and many of its hotels date back to that time.
The area around Llanwrtyd Wells is full of natural beauty and breathtaking scenery, making it an ideal centre for walking, mountain biking, bird watching and touring. As you drive through Mid Wales it is often possible to spot a red kite, one of Britain's rarest birds. There are plenty of options for walking and hiking nearby in the Irfon Forest and around the Llyn Brianne Reservoir, an artificial lake which was created in the 70?s when the River Towy was dammed. At times of low rainfall, it is sometimes possible to see the roofs of the houses which had to be flooded in order for the dam to go ahead.There is a lot going on in Llanwrtyd Wells throughout the year, so if you are looking for something a little bit different, then this is the place to come. This Mid Wales town is the home of the Man versus Horse Marathons, the World Bog Snorkelling Championships and the Real Ale Amble.WalkingThe 15 mile route around Llyn Brianne provides some of the most splendid views available in Wales. Leaping Stiles provides some excellent suggestions for walking in the area.

“Beautiful accommodation in a stunning setting”
We had a wonderful time whilst staying in this very spacious and modern accommodation. There was plenty of room for the children to play inside and outside and the accommodation was well equipped. We particularly liked sitting in the cosy area in front of the fire. It was homely and luxurious and we had a very relaxing time. This is an ideal place to spend some time with family or for catching up with friends.
“Peaceful and quiet location with lovely rural views , yet easy access to Llanwrtyd and very high standard accommodation.”
We liked the location and very high standard of accommodation so much that we have booked again for next new year.
“High quality accommodation, great location”
The name Gwedd y Glyn is fine but to call it a 'Holiday Barn' really doesn't do justice to this fantastic and very highly specified property. Despite the amazing space within the building, the under-floor heating (powered by a ground source heat pump) and wood burner in the main room make for a very warm and cosy environment. The four bedrooms on the upper floor are very well appointed and in some cases with fantastic views. The ground floor bedroom is comfortable but more functional. The location is really picturesque, just over a mile from the town. The property owners were very attentive and helpful throughout our stay. The only minor issue at the time of our visit was the lack of WiFi, but there is a public FON hotspot nearby that can be accessed from most parts of the house. In summary, this is probably the best holiday rental that we have booked in a long while, and if repeat custom is the mark of a good product, then perhaps the biggest recommendation we can make is that we booked our next stay here before we left!
Exceptionally well restored barn, spacious,comfortable and luxuriously furnished. Warm welcome from owners. A real 'gem'!
“premium quality, scenery and relaxation at an affordable price”
Amazing views and scenery as you approach this property, and the wow factor continues as you enter Gwedd y Glyn. Everything is such high quality, the space and layout is ideal and it feels so welcoming and homely hearing the logs crackle festively in the wood burner. I cant wait to return and experience the area during all four seasons.
“A very luxurious and relaxing converted barn - it is an ideal location for a fun packed family holiday.”
Gwedd y Glyn is an extremely well appointed and very comfortable converted barn. We used it as a base to go for walks, horse riding, red kite feeding and other fun activities. The accommodation is large enough for an extended family holiday which we did as we were 5 adults and 5 children in total. We would thoroughly recommend it and will definitely return. It was a great holiday, enjoyed by all.
