A stunning property, in a beautiful setting in the Brecon Beacons. Much to see and do from your doorstep and a well presented home, perfect for a special occasion, to return to at the end of your day.

Bettws is a sweet village in the Brecon Beacons. Country and mountain walks are right on your doorstep, with the Sugar Loaf and Skirrid nearby providing amazing scenery. Just three miles to the historic town of Abergavenny with an eclectic mix of shops, pubs and restaurants, regular festivals and markets and even a little cinema for rainy days. Nearby you can visit galleries, museums and historic castles. Interesting days out at Blaenavon Iron Works and The Big Pit or perhaps try star gazing at the Brecon Beacons Visitor Centre. Plenty of activities to enjoy including riding, golf, kayaking on the Usk and Wye or a visit to Hay on Wye the town of books, which is twenty miles away.

It is difficult not to be impressed when driving up the gravelled drive to this detached barn. Entering the double height dining room simply adds to a very welcoming arrival. The room flows to an opulent lounge with TV/DVD, with large comfortable sofas framing a warming wood burner, providing a relaxing environment any time of year. There are some stone steps down to a delightful sun room, looking out over the grounds and an ideal spot to enjoy a good book and a cup of tea. The kitchen is also a few steps from the lounge and is well-equipped for large family gatherings. It has a double electric oven and hob, microwave, coffee machine and dishwasher. A small flight of wooden stairs takes you to a large utility area with fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and handy WC. Heading away from the lounge through the dining area and up a step, takes you to the ground floor sleeping accommodation. The first room is a sweet double bedroom, with ample wardrobe space, bed linen and towels provided. There is a useful WC before reaching a pretty en-suite double bedroom with shower and WC. For entertaining the family there is a games room at the end of this hallway, which is home to a pool table. The first floor is accessed via the imposing staircase that greets you upon arrival to Kestrel Barn, alongside the dining area, with the landing stretching across the length of the building. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, with character A-frame beams and lovely rural and mountain views. It also benefits from a dressing area that leads to the large en-suite with shower and WC, both down a few steps from the bedroom. There is a further double bedroom, again with a beautiful aspect. The family bathroom is well appointed with a roll-top bath, separate shower and WC. The final two bedrooms are both twin rooms. This detached barn is a splendid holiday destination for families and couples, the wonderful location and local offerings makes this a must visit whatever the season.

Outside there are large enclosed grounds with lawn and patio with furniture. There is ample private parking which includes a carport.

The property was absolutely fabulous - beautifully decorated with quality furnishings. The underfloor heating was so cosy that we never even lit the woodburner. It has a fantastic layout for a large group; the open plan design of the different areas meant plenty of space to spread out, yet we could all come together as one big group very comfortablRead morey. Lovely welcome from the owners, including the chocolate cake and Welsh cakes! It really made our weekend to stay somewhere so beautiful. Hide

This is a beautifully situated barn conversion in a wonderfully peaceful valley on the edge of the Brecon Beacons. The neighbouring properties are close by, especially the converted cider press buildings, but the neighbours are delightfully friendly and welcoming. The host was very helpful and friendly though we never actually met.

This is a fabulous house in a beautiful location, convenient for Crickhowell, Abergavenny and the rest of Brecon district. It is very well equipped for 8-10 adults or a mix of 12 adults and children. Certainly one of the nicest houses we have rented.

Kestrel Barn was a perfect place for a family holiday. We were 4 generations from age 7 years up to 83 and all enjoyed the space in and around the property. It was very clean and well equipped.
