Gorgeous six bedroom barn conversion with hot tub and valley views, brimming with character near Powys.
Please note: minimum stay for this property is: 2 nights low season & 7 nights high season
In a steep-sided and beautiful valley in the heart of Wales, this stunning 18th Century barn has been lovingly converted into a self-catering holiday cottage which sleeps up to fourteen people between six bedrooms. With a state of the art outdoor hot tub, WiFi throughout and a full size table tennis table, Upper Valley Barn is the perfect destination for larger groups of friends or family looking to take in the dramatic beauty and historic charm of rural Wales without compromising on luxury.
The main living space is a high ceilinged, airy kitchen-cum-dining room, with seating space for up to eighteen hungry hikers, and sprawling views over the valley below. The terrace with its outdoor dining table and hot-tub can be accessed directly from this south-facing room. The other communal areas are upstairs, comprising a home cinema room and a drawing room with double-height ceilings, exposed original rafters and ample space for guests to relax with a book and a bottle of wine and chat. You’ll also find the utility room on this level, with a deep sink and washer/dryer, ensuring that whatever the weather you’re ready to strike out each day.
In total there are six bedrooms spread across the two floors, some with en-suite facilities and some sharing bathrooms. The master bedroom has a bath tub in the room itself, so you can take in the extraordinary views as you take a long soak at the end of the day. The bedrooms face a range of vistas, and each have their own distinct aesthetic charm. Overall, the look and feel of this former barn is a combination of timeless farmhouse chic and more contemporary comfort. Sleek, elegant design characterises the space, from authentic wooden beams and joists to smooth, clean lines. Expect high-quality brickwork, glassy slate floors and top of the range kitchen cabinetry. The best views are out over the deep, long valley, and there is ample living space inside and out for multi-generational parties to get stuck into work, play, socialising and film-watching without wanting for space.
This area of Wales is an outdoors enthusiast’s paradise with many walking routes just a short drive away. Canoe and kayak fans will love the nearby National Whitewater Centre, while landlubbers of all ages should head to the Centre for Alternative Technologies with its seven acres of carefully stewarded wildlife and views of Snowdonia National Park. The largest body of water in Wales, the magnificent Lake Bala, is a short drive away through peaceful mountain passes. Once there, expect everything from a quaint steam train along the shore to yachting on the lake. Head there on a Monday to experience the market.
