A cosy self-contained stone cottage in a peaceful green valley below Cefn Llwydallt. We're 1000 feet up and the views are brilliant! There's a remote, "get away from it all" feeling, but we're just 3 miles from the main A470 road, and a short drive from Hay-on-Wye, Brecon, Builth Wells, and the Brecon Beacons. Perfect for a self-catering stay, downstairs is open plan, with spacious kitchen, dining and lounge areas, and a toilet; upstairs has two bedrooms, and a bathroom with shower and toilet.

The space
• Recently converted from a former double garage, the Barn Annexe is spacious, smart, clean and comfortable. And deliberately uncluttered, but with all the essentials for a comfy stay.
• The front door looks out onto green fields and hills, with a great view up the beautiful Sgethwin valley. Above us is the common land of Cefn Llwydallt. To the south, Hay Bluff and the rest of the Brecon Beacons are our backdrop.
• It's quiet! Fall asleep to the sounds of sheep and the breeze in the trees.
• There is adjacent parking for one or two cars.
• Sorry, but we can’t accept dogs (we have cats, and there are sheep nearby).

Where you’ll be

Crickadarn, Wales, United Kingdom

• We are just three miles from the main A470 road. Hay-on-Wye ("the town of books") is 14 miles away, and it is 9 miles to atmospheric Brecon with its Cathedral and Jazz Festival, 10 miles to Builth Wells for the Royal Welsh Agricultural Showground, 9 miles to quaint Talgarth, and 2.5 miles to the glorious River Wye (with canoeing at Glasbury, 10 miles).
• This is a peaceful and beautiful place: perfect for writing, painting, or musical inspiration. And for just relaxing!
• There are lots of fine walks, starting at the front door or just a short drive away.
• Night-time skies are dark here. Bring your telescope!
• And it's a good place for bird watchers: crossbill, pipits, wheatear, kites, buzzards...

During your stay

• The Barn where we (Jo and Dave) live is nearby, but not too close. We won’t be in your face!
• But we'll do our best to help you enjoy your stay in our beautiful valley.
