This beautifully restored Welsh barn enjoys a secluded location, on a working farm with views over Brecon Beacon Mountains.

A warm Welsh welcome, or “Croeso Cynnes” awaits you at Y Gegin Fach; a traditional detached Welsh barn. Nestled on a 130-acre working farm in a picturesque location, the barn has been lovingly restored to a very good standard, retaining all of its original charm and character, and furnished and equipped to excellent standards for that unforgettable holiday experience. This former stable dates back to the 18th century and has original features, including stone walls and oak beams. Y Gegin Fach literally translates as The Little Kitchen, although the kitchen diner is anything but! All around welcoming touches have been added, including contemporary amenities and a blazing wood-burning stove for those cosy evenings in. The owners’ home is close by but they have created a separate lawned garden, with its own barbecue and pizza oven for private use of guests at Y Gegin Fach. You can sit back and relax, where the glistening River Marlais passes, and watch the red kites and peregrine falcons soar over the magnificent scenery. There are beautiful walks right from the doorstep in these tranquil surroundings and wonderful views of the famous Brecon Beacons, an official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Wales’ first and only the fifth destination in the world to be granted the status of an international dark sky reserve. Just a stones’ throw away, the Brecon Beacon National Park, is abundant with wildlife, and is home to many walks (tame or challenging) and enchanted sites nestled amongst tumbling waterfalls and rugged countryside. The historic town of Llandeilo is a short drive away and is famous for its award-winning chocolate shop, boutique shopping and elegant restaurants dotted around the town. Discover the county’s historic sites, including Carreg Cennen Castle and Aberglasney Manor & Gardens or explore the Heritage park of Dinefwr and learn the rich history behind its beautiful 12th-century castle, situated amongst a tranquil 800-acre park with wild deer running free. The National Botanic Garden of Wales, Dan-Yr-Ogof Caves and National Trust Dolaucothi Goldmines (underground tours available) are all within easy reach. Fishing within 5 miles. Beach 30 miles. Shop 2½ miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    We had an amazing holiday at the cottage. The owners were kind and welcoming and full of local knowledge for our trip. Cottage is ideally located for the Brecon Beacons and has lots of good pubs and restaurants nearby.

    The barn is great and plenty to do without having to travel too far, however it is very remote and miles of single track roads to get there and to go anywhere is the only negative we have.

    Beautiful Cottage, much nicer than the photos suggest and the owners Hugh & Ann are lovely. The cottage is in a nice rural location, very quiet with lots of nature and peace to be enjoyed. Inside the cottage was very homely, comfortable and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped the only thing lacking was a good non stick pan for the morning eggs! Plenty to do and see in the surrounding area for us and our two young children. In summary, highly recommended!

    Very relaxing week in a very special cottage. Can't recommend it highly enough. Lots to see and do in the surrounding area. We particularly enjoyed our visit to the Dolaucothi Goldmines.

    Beautiful, clean cottage with everything in you could need. Lovely peaceful location but central to enjoying Carmarthenshire.

    This is quite simply a stunning barn conversion in a magical location. Great amenities within the cottage are coupled with an idyllic setting. We stayed at lambing time and Hugh (landlord and farmer) was superb with my 6 year old son, showing him around the farm. The views towards the Brecon Beacons are breathtaking. I didn't want to leave. We will definitely be back.

    Fantastic cottage. We loved staying here. The cottage was spotlessly clean , nicely decorated and well equipped. The bed was amazing, we slept so well. The owners are very helpful and accommodating. Only slight improvements would be a better blind for the skylight and a steamer in the kitchen. There is plenty to do if you don't mind travelling a bit. We went to Tenby, New Quay, Brecon, all about an hour away. All in all , we had a lovely holiday, I have stayed in a lot of cottages and this is definitely the best one!
