Abernant Barn has been beautifully renovated from a 100 year old stable block into a luxurious holiday home / cottage in the heart of Wales.

The property includes fishing rights on the banks of the Irfon which runs only metres from the property. The accommodation includes underfloor heating throughout and large lounge with a wood burning stove for those cosy evenings. Outside an under cover decked area with sunken hot tub provides space to relax and BBQ whatever the weather. The village of Llanwrtyd Wells, the smallest town in Britain is only a 10 minute walk away and is well served by three pubs and a local store/garage. The local railway station is a 5 minute walk from the barn where a regular service on the heart of wales line will take you towards Builth Wells or Llandovery.

3/5 Okay

Peaceful location, property needs some attention.
The location is quiet and picturesque. The overall layout and design of the property is good. There were however a number of small points which detracted from the positive points; 1. The log burner chimney does not comply with building regulations: it is within 2.3 m of a Velux window but does not extend 1 m above the top of the opening, as required by Document J. Consequently, smoke was blown into the children's bedroom. 2. Ripped bin bag containing old bits of roofing chrysotile asbestos present adjacent wood store and accessible by children. 3. Bedroom doors had no door handles or locks. 4. Property described as child friendly but no fireguard for log burner or stair gates to stop toddler climbing the stairs every three minutes or falling down them from the landing. 5. No way to dry clothes: without lighting log burner. The absence of a tumble dryer and the presence of underfloor heating (ground source heat pump, which was very cool) meant we had no way to effectively dry wet clothes. 6. All knives in kitchen were blunt. No bread knife. 7. Chest of drawers in children's room repaired with incorrect length screws leaving razor sharp point inside drawer. 8. Not enough storage in bedrooms for one week stay. Aside from these points, which are remedied quickly (apart from the chimney), the venue is quite spacious and pleasant.

5/5 Excellent

Brilliant place 10/10
Our stay was brilliant! The scenery and location of the barn was beautiful, very quiet and peaceful and the local village is only a short walk away. The barn conversion is very open and has plenty of room, the living room is very homely and cosy. We also made good use of the hot tub despite the rain! We were provided with all essentials and had everything we needed for the week. Bernard was also very quick to respond to any questions and was very helpful. We saw others mentioning that it was difficult to find but when we had used the app we were able to find the location relatively easily. We will definitely be coming back soon! 100% recommend

5/5 Excellent

A fantastic place.

Excellent family new year
We stayed with family friends so there were four adults, two girls aged 8 and two boys aged 10. There was plenty of room for all of us in the house and the children loved the outdoor space. Top activities were fishing (didn't catch anything though!), building fires and petting the horses in the next field. The hot tub was a big hit for the adults. The converted barn is in a great location, secluded but only 10 minute walk to the town centre. Communication with Bernie, the owner, was great - very quick to answer any questions we had. Would thoroughly recommend Abernant Barn to anyone wanting to get away with friends or family for a very relaxing break.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing place to stay for families or groups
Amazing location and property. Easy to follow directions. Really feel like you are in the middle of no where. Close to Brecon Beacons and elan valley also!
