Tucked away in a woody hollow, Esgair Barn is the perfect place for a refreshing break in unspoilt Carmarthenshire. Recently converted from a barn it’s now a comfortable holiday home.

There’s plenty of space here for outdoor time and fresh air whether or not attractions are open. Whether you’re planning an energising itinerary of hiking or biking or just want to get away from it all you’ll be happy here. Fans of trees, hills, rivers, castles, beaches, wool and even gin will not be disappointed.

The space
You are welcomed into the barn through the large porch with plenty of space for wet coats and boots, and somewhere to sit while you prise them off.

The living room
The living room is a grand double-height room with sofas and a big table and banquette to seat you all in comfort. The windows look out over the fields and stream to one side, and a small gravelled private patio on the other.

There’s a wood burning stove to keep you extra cosy, and some good old-fashioned board games and jigsaws in case it rains. We’ll be dividing up the games/ books/ extras we provide and swapping them between guests so you can still enjoy them. TV provided but you’ll be too busy watching the birds and squirrels.

The kitchen
Food can be a big feature of a holiday, so we’ve stuffed the kitchen with everything we could think of to help you whip up a feast (or heat up a pizza). You’ll find:
•A range oven
•A microwave
•Plenty of pots, pans and utensils including baking equipment
•Lots of crockery and serving dishes
•A fridge freezer
•A dishwasher
•A washer/dryer and airer.
There’s also a sofa and stools so you can keep the chef(s) company while they cook.

Bedroom 1, downstairs, with a huge superking bed and easy access to wet room next door. Wardrobe and large chest of drawers for all your gubbins. This used to be where the donkey slept but is now ideal for grandparents. Can also be made up as twin beds on request.

Bedroom 2, twin beds with skylight for watching the stars. Features desk from the now sadly closed village school. Can also be made up as superking on request.

Bedroom 3, comfortable kingsize bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers. Everything you need for a good night’s sleep. Challenge you to find something to hang on all the pegs!

Bedroom 4, cast iron kingsize bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and a woolly friend. En-suite shower room.

There’s a large wet room on the ground floor with toilet, sink and walk-in shower with seat. It has underfloor heating and a heated towel rail.

There’s a retro-style family bathroom upstairs with a bath, toilet, sink and heated towel rail.

There’s an en-suite shower room off one of the upstairs bedrooms with toilet, sink, electric shower and heated towel rail.

We’ve had fun decorating the barn with characterful furniture and décor, and been inspired by all the talented artists and crafts people living locally. We’ve included locally produced items where we can.

Where you’ll be

Llanwrda, United Kingdom

Llansadwrn is a lovely village spread out over hills overlooking the western end of the Brecon Beacons. A walk (or jog!) around the village "circuit" gives amazing views of nearby Lynn Y Fan Fach and the Black Mountain on the horizon, and pretty wooded hillsides and farmland in between.

The village pub is in walking distance and landlord Cliff is welcoming, but the pub doesn’t currently serve food. It's a very friendly community and you will be made to feel welcome while you're here.

There are village shops, post offices and butchers in nearby Llanwrda and Llangadog, and Co-ops and other shops in Llandeilo and Llandovery. Please support our local shops, but Tesco do deliver to the barn if you get stuck.

Depending on the season, we can arrange a veg box stuffed full of locally grown organic fruit and vegetables to be in the barn for your arrival, for a reasonable price. Please let us know on booking if you would like us to arrange this.

During your stay

Our house is opposite the barn, across a courtyard. We live here with our two cats and elderly gentleman alpaca. We’re happy to chat and offer advice from a safe distance, but if you prefer to be left to your own devices that’s fine too.

We love exploring the area and can provide recommendations for places to visit and good places to get takeaway locally.
