Guestbook comments from the owner

At the risk of repeating what everyone else has said ,this really is a fabulous place. You have obviously given a lot of time and thought to the conversion , decoration and furnishing of this lovely barn .We particularly appreciated your welcome ,the generous food and wine basket, the feather duvets and crisp clean bedding ,the provision of dishwasher tablets toilet rolls and absence of electric meter ....Pat Heather and Chris 23/4/12

As everyone seems to agree your barn really is delightful and set in such wonderful surrondings .When booking properties over the internet you are never sure if you have made right decision but as soon as we arrived at top of drive we knew we were onto a winner.The space offered both inside and out has been perfect for two families .Being able to walk from the barn has been so easy and the highlight was the waterfalls walks.The Newtons and Budds 12/5/12

Had a lovely time ,loved the cottage we all want to live here.Will come again.

Beautiful barn, in a great location. Lucia has made sure that all your self catering needs are met, and she was a great host, offering advice about the area,where to shop, where to go for days out etc.Beautiful waterfall walks right from the door, the dog loved it.What better way to wake up with 360 degrees of beautiful scenery, so peaceful.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I met our daughter at the cottage. She is at uni in Cardiff so a great location to meet. Not too far from Cardiff. We were so impressed by the fixtures and fittings. The pictures do not do it justice so much better and bigger. We were very comfortable. The only downside is that the wifi is poor if non existent. They have tried to fix this but we only got a signal outside the cottage. However the location was so central to amazing walks. Even though the weather was rainy it didn't matter. We loved every minute of staying here and would love to return one day.

Little taste of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean and with all amenities. We had a wonderful week - lots to do in the area - waterfall walks and caves. Lovely and peaceful - life at a relaxed pace. Our 7 month beagle puppy loved the garden.

I would definitely recommend and we hope to return.

Away from it all....

  • 3 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Pen Y Porth barn in the Brecon Beacons. The barn is set in beautiful surroundings and is very spacious for a 2 bedroomed property.

The kitchen and lounge area downstairs is open plan and very comfortable. There is also a large selection of DVDs to watch in case of a rainy day. The bedrooms are big and my son loved having the Xbox in his room to play with.

The outside space was fabulous - perfect for the kids and our dog to run around and let off steam!!

There are beautiful walks nearby and we even walked up Pen Y Fan mountain which we would highly recommend. The path up the mountain was easy enough for the children and our dog although bad weather stopped us from climbing right to the very top!

The only disappointing part of our stay was the lack of wifi. This is something we always look for when booking a property. Although wifi was set up in the barn, it didn't work, to the extent that we couldn't even browse the internet or check emails. Despite raising this during our stay there didn't seem to be any sense of urgency to get it sorted. Unfortunately, we won't be coming back here because of this but if lack of wifi is not a problem for you, then this place is a perfect little haven, away from it all. Very relaxing.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great comments about the barn . It is set in a amazing but remote location in the Brecon Beacons National Park close to waterfalls , caves ,mountains and lakes with fantastic clear skies at night . Unfortunately it does mean you may have to sacrifice some modern technology due to location. Having said that the barn does in fact have Internet but it was not wi fi and was not advertised as having wi fi . Despite this as soon as I was told that your devices did not have ports to connect lead to modem I contacted the satellite broadband provider and immediately ordered a wireless router due to errors on their part it did not arrive in time for your stay . So now the barn has wi fi ! So if you love the great outdoors , getting back to nature and exploring a beautiful part of the world then my barn is definitely the property for you .

Perfect Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted a holiday cottage to celebrate Thanksgiving with a couple of friends from the US. The kitchen was more than sufficient for preparing a feast with modern appliances and all the accoutrements. The bedrooms were large with en suites. Very clean and well looked after. It was the perfect base for our treks around the Brecon Beacons. It is within short walking distance of excellent hiking trails that lead to the nearby waterfalls. The Penderyn Whiskey Distillery gives an excellent tour with tasting and is a 5 minute drive. The pub in Ystradfellte was very homely and full of friendly locals who made us feel very welcome. A perfect place to get away.
