Holiday Rental House
A converted barn on a farm provides plenty of space for family and friends to gather. The large lounge, kitchen and dining room are versatile spaces for catching up with each others news or dancing the night away. The flexible combinations of sizes of the 7 bedrooms including a downstairs wheelchair friendly bedroom mean multi-generational family gatherings, groups of friends and youth groups can be accommodated. The fully equipped kitchen and under cover BBQ area provide flexibility for catering options. There is also a pub which serves food and village stores in walking distance. The property is popular for reunions and birthday parties. There are no immediate neighbours, so a peaceful setting if you simply want to sit around the fire pit in the garden in the evening looki...A converted barn on a farm provides plenty of space for family and friends to gather.

The base price is the price for up to 20 people and provides exclusive use of the property, with additional members of the group being charged per night. Please note that bedrooms 1,2,3 and 4 contain bunkbeds. Bedroom 1 is downstairs.More

Interaction with guests
Guests have exclusive use of the barn, and garden. My own house is also on the farm so I will be available if people need assistance, and I am happy to chat with guests as I see to the needs of the animals around the farm. I am a tourism ambassador for Carmarthenshire and the Brecon Beacons National Park so can assist with suggestions for activities and places to visit in South West Wales.

About the neighbourhood
The property is adjacent to Brechfa Forest, and in the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains. Brechfa Forest is currently managed by the forestry commission with a mixture of ancient woodland and conifer plantations. The forest is open access, you are free to roam where you will. Llanllwni Mountain is common land with sheep, cattle and horses roaming freely to graze and fantastic views over the county. Guests come to the area to walk, cycle or ride in Brechfa Forest. As well as being open access so you can roam where you want, there are also three mountain bike trails ranging from family to black standard.
Getting around
The nearest train and bus station are in Carmarthen. There is limited public transport in the area. but I can provide you with the contact details of a local minibus company.
