Barn
The Barn is just north of the town of Brechfa. The farm has its own stream, paddocks and a second undeveloped barn. This is a rural paradise, with our closest neighbours 1/2 mile away and the most noise coming from sheep in the surrounding pastures. The Barn has been beautifully converted into two en suite bedrooms, both with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. It's well equipped - we've tried to think of everything! The spacious kitchen/dining area has underfloor heating (which is loved by dogs and people alike), and the sitting room is especially cosy with the wood burner. There's a Smart TV with Freeview, a secure wifi connection, DVD player and lots of board games to keep you amused.

The Barn caters for a maximum of four people and whilst we are happy for children, may not be the most toddler safe due to some steps, solid floors and wood burning stove.

Interaction with guestsUnfortunately, as much as I would like to always be on hand for any questions and provide assistance, work dictates otherwise. This means that I may or may not be around at the time of your visit. However, not to worry as with modern technology, I can be contacted via intercom, email or phone at any time. I also have a lovely couple who know The Barn inside out living nearby if there are any more serious issues I can not assist with.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Simply....The Best 😁
This is our second visit to The Barn, Nant Llwyd. Our first was with all our dogs and this time with the 3. We have always travelled with our dogs whenever possible, and resorted to buying a caravan as "dog friendly " often isn't! Most dog owners clean up, keep on leads, don't leave unattended etc etc, so it becomes unfriendly when the obvious needs stating. James is as many reviews state "charming". He makes you feel welcome and at ease. He has sooo many return visitors for a reason, and rightly so. The barn is comfortable and spacious but still feels cozy. The darkest of skies, and quietest of nights, peace is in abundance. There are so many stunning, quiet and unspoilt walks in the area, and the garden is enclosed for your peace of mind. The paddock is great for a dash around, in between walks. Without a doubt the very nicest of places to stay, and we'll be back! Again, and again! ☺️

Christmas Perfetction
This was our first time away for Christmas but our 11 time staying at this wonderful barn. So peaceful and cosy and with a roaring log fire on Christmas Day, made it truly magical. Everything is provided and you only need to bring yours clothing, so easy to get settled in and relaxed. If you are looking for a peaceful quite, get a way from it all place, I cannot recommend this highly enough. The host James always make us feel welcome. Its a perfect location for dogs and has excellent walks very close by. You and dogs will be totally relaxed and immediately. A perfect place set in a perfect location. Truly a home from home. Beaches and stunning coastal paths are within a 40 minute drive.

Peaceful and comfortable
The Barn is an ideal place to unwind and enjoy the peaceful tranquility of this stunning location. We have stayed here three times with our labrador and we have all been very comfortable. This is an ideal location for people who enjoy walking or biking (or just observing nature) in the beautiful Brechfa Forest. The barn is well equipped and very comfortable - I highly recommend for a peaceful break in a stunning location and Morrissey endorses my recommendation as he loves the opportunities to get into rivers on our walks.

Tranquility
The barn is peaceful and located in a quiet area ideal for walks and cycling. It is tastefully decorated with everything needed. The en-suite rooms work perfectly. We enjoyed cycling and walking in Brechfa Forest. We woke up to a variety of birds and insects. James welcomed us and explained the routes into the forest and he was on hand if we needed anything.

Picture perfect and peaceful
Our 7th time in this fabulous Barn with our furbabies and it feels like coming home. Such a peaceful and relaxing place to stay. Time to unwind and enjoying the surrounding countryside. Rush hour here is 2 vehicles in 2hours sheer bliss. Everything was provided so all we had to do was unpack. Our furbabies made themselves at home immediately. Thank you to the owner James Holt for making us feel so welcome. Looking to getting back there in 2020.

Home again
After a year not going on holiday for various reason, myself and my husband were really looking forward to coming back to the Barn this June, and being re-acquainted with it. It was just like coming home, warm quiet and very relaxing. James Holt, owner, made use feel really welcome and our seven dogs immediately made themselves at home. Everything we needed to be able to unwind was provided, all we had to do was unpack and relax. Really looking forward to going back again in 2019

Perfection
From the moment we arrived we loved this place, it was our first holiday with our 2 dogs and I spent a lot of time researching and I truly believe it paid off! The property is spotlessly clean, it's spacious and well thought out, the ensuite bathrooms are a little bit of luxury and everything is thought of, really is a home from home! The garden is a lovely space and the extra land is a blessing, so is the hose to rinse sand off the dogs!! Plenty of things to do in the surrounding area and the walks and views around the cottage are spectacular. We did not want to go home and I wish I had booked it for 2 weeks!!

Ideal weekend break location
If you are looking for a weekend break to recharge the batteries then the barn is ideal with superb modern facilities and walking/cycling tracks outside the front door. Great quiet location with stunning local views. Sure we will be back soon!

About the neighbourhood
The Brechfa Forest is a magical area. The bike tracks are now drawing enthusiasts from all over the UK and western Europe. Perfect too for dog walkers with miles of stable tracks and stunning views. Visit Llanllwni Mountain, an area of special landscape value and look east to the Brecon Beacons, south towards Llanelli and west towards the snow capped Cadair Idris.

How to get there
In this era of Sat Navs and online maps, actually getting to the location is relatively simple. However, using the post code brings you to the center of Llidiad Nenog. Coming over the moor and down into Llidiad Nenog, you should drive straight through the hamlet and out the other side for about a 1/2 mile, whereupon you will find Nant Llwyd on the right. Arriving from the direction of Brechfa, once you get to the top of the hill and emerge from the pine trees, you will see Nant Llwyd nestled into a shallow dip on the left. The way off the road is up a short incline and through a gate. There are two slate signs with Nant Llwyd on them. Come down the drive to the bottom of the yard and The Barn is on the left. If the gate is shut, then please can you shut after you come through as that will likely mean there are sheep roaming the roads and we try and keep them out of the grounds!
