The space

The Cabin is made up of a open plan kitchen and lounge with double doors opening out onto a spacious decking. There is a double bedroom and a second bedroom with a full sized bunk bed. There is also a shower room. The Cabin is fully centrally heated from the farm's biomass heating system.

Guest access

The cottage sits in the main farm complex above the black barn and the horse riding arena. You have your own access and come and go as you please. You can bring your car to the front door of the Cabin if necessary.

Interaction with guests

Hugh is the farm owner, lives in the main farm house opposite the cottage and works on the farm during the day so he is available most of the time and is happy for you to knock on the door if you have any queries or need some help.

The neighbourhood

The farm is on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park - "from the depths of its limestone caves to the grandeur of Pen y Fan and Cribyn, its highest peaks, there’s plenty to explore in this gem of a national park. By day, there are moorlands, trails and towns to discover, while by night, you can feast your eyes on the stars"

The closest amenities are in Sennybridge village where there is a fuel station, small village shop and post office. To the east is the cathedral town of Brecon and historic market town of Llandovery.

Getting around

You will need to have your own transport (see other things to note).

Other things to note

Please note that access to the farm is along unsurfaced track and crosses a culvert. This is usually not a problem however, immediately after exceptionally heavy rain the track can get washed away into deeper ruts and the the culvert can flow over the concrete crossing point. There have been occasions when I have had to ferry guests across in 4x4. Even when the water is not a problem, low slung cars can find it difficult to negotiate the track. With care a vehicle such as a VW Golf can manage to get in and out quite easily.

There is a laundry in the main barn that guests are welcome to use. The barn can also be used for drying and storage of bikes etc.

The farm is home to 5 horses, 5 chickens, 5 cows, 4 ducks, 1 cat and 2 dogs.

We absolutely loved our stay here. A cosy and idyllic log cabin with amazing views of the nearby farms. Lovely local country walks. We walked to sennybridge the first night which took about 40 mins but is about 5 minutes drive away. Lovely local pubs in sennybridge. This place sits just on the border of the national park so accessing the main attractions in the Brecons in really easy. It was a lovely comfortable and tranquil stay and we would definitely come again. Hugh has the most friendly dogs and chickens. We had to stop ourselves from stealing Oscar the Labrador!! Thanks for having us !

A well equipped cabin with everything you could need. Hugh left some info on Brecon walks and an OS map on the dining table so it was easy to plan our days out. Being dog fans, it was a pleasure to have Oscar the Labrador come visiting at the decking doors each evening. The farm setting is very idyllic with free roaming chickens and the sound of sheep baa's. Would definitely stay again on our next trip to the Brecons.

My partner and I stayed here for three nights. We shared the cottage with another couple and their little girl. Another couple had the loft with their baby and another the cabin with their two daughters. It was a perfect retreat where the children could safely play outside, feed the ducks and chickens and the owners very friendly dogs. It was perfect for everyone as they all had their own space but then we could all get together to eat as a group in the main cottage. Hugh was lovely and very flexible with our needs too. It's a little out of the way of the main attractions in Brecon but that's what made it so ideal. The views were phenomenal and the whole place was so peaceful :)

The cabin is excellent value for money and has everything you need to make your trip comfortable and enjoyable. The setting is serene and provides stunning views. When sat outside or walking around the farm all you can hear is the running of the nearby stream and the bleating of lambs, it was truly idyllic. We were lucky enough to get some clear nights so were blessed to witness the stars that the dark sky reserve provides, I've seen no better in this country. The friendly dogs on the farm that love to visit also add to the stay. I cannot recommend this place enough.

This is a fabulous spot. The cabin exceeded our expectations and we felt very at home. Hugh is very welcoming and Oscar ( the chocolate lab) is a great addition. Great value and lovely scenery.
