Brecon, Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales
Set in the most glorious countryside, surrounded by rolling fields, woodland and 180 acres of farmland with grazing cattle, red kites soaring overhead and a wealth of interesting trees, flora and fauna. Beautifully converted to an exceptionally high standard from the original 17th Century barns, the two cottages have a contemporary, yet comfortable and homely feel. The craftsmen builders have retained the original oak beams, and some of the stonework. The owners are very happy to help guests make the most of their stay and have plenty of local information and recommended places to visit in the area.
