O espaço
Owl Barn is a superb recent conversion of an old stone and slate building on an upland hill farm in Carmarthenshire, Wales.
With its stylish decor and amazing views this romantic and quirky spacious barn will both wow and cosset you.

There are 2 large double bedrooms and 2 shower rooms;
The master bedroom has a super-king (6 foot wide ) double bed and an en-suite shower room.
The second bedroom has a king size 5ft double bed, and there is the option to have a fifth temporary bed provided in either bedroom. There is an additional charge for using this bed - please enquire to have the use of it if your group is less than 5. If you are a group of five you must book for 5. If you are 4 or less and want to use the extra bed you must request it. Please note that we do not allow sleeping on the sofas.
Thus we can accommodate up to 5 adults, easily, but do not allow more than that (babies excepted - we provide a cot free).
You will have ample parking spaces, a sheltered outside table and eating/sitting space and a little bit of peace and quiet.

Owl Barn is well stocked; with basics such as teas, coffee, and other simple cooking needs etc, to wide screen smart TV, DVD, Humax TV recorder, radio HiFi/CD sound system, and 6+ meg Wifi, books and magazines to browse.

Whether your stay (minimum of 2 nights) is for family, friends or a romantic weekend get away, you could not ask for a more delightful retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern life, and you are within seconds of quiet countryside walks which can be as challenging as you wish; a stroll around the farm or on sheltered roads and footpaths, or up to the trig point on the top of Fforest, the nearest hill top of the Cambrian range at about 1300 feet.
All without using the car.

This is a stylish warm and peaceful building with underfloor heating throughout, supplied by an air source heat pump.
It is well appointed, quiet and has lovely extensive countryside views and a sheltered terraced outside area to eat al fresco or just sit quietly.
There is parking for numerous cars.

Sleeps 4+1 in 2 bedrooms with the option of an extra single bed in either bedroom.

+ short breaks (2 night minimum)

+ Romantic? Most definitely!

+ Two couples? Ideal.

+ For a group of friends? Perfect.

+ A family? Oh yes.

- Smokers? Sorry, definitely not inside the building.

- Pets? Not allowed at all, sorry.

- Hen or stag parties? Sorry, definitely not; this is a quiet place, so no noisy groups please.

The main shower room is spacious and has room for a wheel chair.

There is a very quiet minor road running past the barn so walks with great views and without getting your shoes muddy are possible on the doorstep too.

Owl Barn has under floor central heating with oak flooring in the main, tiled floor in the kitchen, and the shower rooms. The fold-up bed can go in either bedroom, but fits nicely in the second bedroom..

The master bedroom with en suite shower room is at the end of the barn, and so would be quiet for a child using the fifth bed, if they needed to be in bed earlier than the rest of the group.
Linen is only provided for use with the extra fold up bed on request in advance and there is a small charge.

The second bedroom has a comfortable king size 5 ft wide double bed.
There is a separate shower room, which is spacious, and has a loo and spacious wet room type shower with no step into the shower.
A fold-up bed is provided for occasional use and linen is provided to make the bed up with, only when requested and there is a small charge for providing it.

The kitchen is a chefs paradise; large with a breakfast bar island that seats 4.
Stylish and well fitted, equipment includes; electric double oven, grill and ceramic hob with extractor fan, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, kettle, toaster, cafetiere and all the usual cooking utensils and pans etc. Superb views over the surrounding countryside.

Living Room: Spacious sunny lounge with lovely outlook, 2 comfortable 3-4 seater sofas. WiFi, smart TV with DVD player, CD/radio, mP3/iPod connection. Extending dining table that can seat up to 10.
A beautiful room with exposed stone wall and beams that is very relaxing.

A recent guest said;

"It was a real sense of awe we experienced staying at Owl Barn. What you achieved in the juxtaposition of modern/new against the rural backdrop is spectacular.

The floor-plan, the use of white, natural and gray tones; the exposed beams, and the way you seamlessly incorporate modern conveniences and comforts all worked so well.

And the lighting -wow! The lighting. Everything from the variety of fixtures, mix of colour-temps, angles/spotlighting. Amazing.

And that’s just the artificial lighting. The way you brought in natural light was equally impressive. The variety and positioning of windows/doors/skylights and their dimensions, not only let the light in but also the surroundings. Glimpses of nature from different angles, the main farmhouse, the sky. The choice of interior light-colour flooring, white walls serve to accentuate nature and the natural light."

Onde você estará

Llandovery, Carmarthenshire, Reino Unido

Llandovery is a pleasant market town, only 10 mins by car, along the leafy lane that leads down to the main road.
Take your time along here; there are many blind bends and 20 mph is quite fast enough!
Many shops, including a medium size supermarket, bakers, butchers, delis, cafes Post office, gift shops etc.
A great Chinese takeaway, and the Three Horseshoes fish and chip restaurant and takeaway, both on the main street are recommended, and there are Indian and other fast food outlets.
There are several good places to eat out;
The Old Printing Office cafe (daytime) is my favourite, behind the shop.
The Kings Head and Castle Hotels do good food, as does the Three Horse Shoes restaurant and takeaway.
The town used to have over 30 pubs! But now there are approximately 10,
and there a several country pubs in the Towy valley that make a good welcome and do food.
I provide a detailed list in my welcome pack and handbook.

Llandovery is the home of the Llandovery Drovers, a semi professional Welsh Premiership rugby side, and the centre of the small town is occupied by the famous Llandovery College, where many sporting greats have come to the notice of talent spotters, especially on the rugby field.
There is a swimming pool, tennis squash and raquetball courts, bowls and croquet adjacent to the delightful Castle Fields cricket ground, next to the car park in the centre of town.
A visit to the livestock market, beyond the town car park, on Tuesday mornings or most Fridays could be an interesting excursion.

This lovely rural area is fantastic for the outdoors with walking, cycling, both on road and off, and we even have a great MTB trail within easy cycling range of the farm, Cwm Rhaeadr MTB forest trail; cycle over into the next valley, 30 mins, ride the trail, 45 mins /lap, dine in the Neuadd Arms in Cilycwm and ride back to Owl Barn at Penygaer. Phew! Or put the bike in the car to get there.....
There are many other cycle and walking tracks through Crychan forest on the opposite side of our Bran valley, or ride/ walk out onto the hills of mid Wales or the Brecon Beacons, only 30 mins away.

Visit;
Lyn y Fan; the most fantastic (URL HIDDEN) is a delightful lake nestling in the cwm of Fan Fawr, the mountain in the view from the kitchen door; 35 mins in the car, then 40 mins walk to the lake. Magical with mystical stories about the Lady of the Lake! On to the top of Fan Fawr is a good hike, but what a view...yes, that is Somerset you can see from there!
Gold Mines at DolauCothi 30 mins away by car
Upper Towy valley, Cilycwm, Rhandirmwyn and on to the
Lynne Brianne dam, the largest of it's type in Europe, walking/cycling, very scenic 35 mins to the dam up the Towy valley.
Aberglasney; world famous gardens, 40 mins
National Botanic Garden of Wales, Nantgaredig 45 mins
Parc y Scarlets, Llanelli, home of Scarlets rugby 60+ mins
Cardiff and the Millenium Stadium 80+ mins
Swansea (football and Ospreys rugby) and
The Gower peninsular, beaches, walking, etc 90 mins
Llandeilo; shopping and architecture 30 mins
Brecon; shopping and architecture 35 mins
Laugharne; home of Dylan Thomas 65 mins
Brechfa forest/Abergorgech; superb MTB trails, 35 mins
Dan yr Ogof show caves open to the public 40 mins
Ystradfellte; amazing walks in wonderful sheltered wooded valleys with waterfalls and caves
Horse riding at Cae Iago Riding Centre, Ffarmers 35 mins
Llangose lake; sailing, canoeing etc. beyond Brecon 40 mins
Rallying; many events throughout the year, on the Eppynt military range or in Crychan and Halfway forests, 25 mins
The area has fantastic roads for motorcyclists, and you will notice many of them visit the town for a cuppa on their travels in summer.
Golf; there's a nine hole course just beside the river Towy. 10 mins
Builth Wells has a good 18 hole course. 35 mins
Builth Wells is also home to the annual Royal Wesh Show around the end of July, and the showground hosts many other events throughout the year.
Fishing is possible on the Towy river that flows down its beautiful adjacent valley and past Llandovery, or at Springwater Lakes 30 mins away towards Lampeter.

I have been a farmer for most of my working life, but 15 years ago I started holiday letting properties in Bath, and now on the farm in Wales too - both are such great places to visit and stay. I enjoy participating in a few sports, and I also like a bit of culture and comfort and that's what we try to provide for guests! I will endeavour to continue to offer a warm welcome, with comfortable, friendly and helpful hosting for guests in the future. Please do come and stay!

Durante sua estadia

I live on the farm in the main house across the yard, but I am often away too, so you may well not see me at all....
The keys are kept in safe place outside, so you may arrive at whatever time suits you, after 4pm normally, often earlier.
You will be given instructions by email about accessing the keys a couple of days prior to arrival.
However, I am always available on the phone/email/WhatsApp / text etc.
