Pen yr Heol Barn used to be the old shearing shed, and is in a superb location on the footpath up to the peaks of the Brecon Beacons.

The barn has been recently restored using traditional materials, Welsh oak, slate and stone.


Downstairs the floor is covered by terracotta tiles over underfloor central heating whilst upstairs is covered by reclaimed pine.

There are two bedrooms upstairs: a beautiful double room with original beams and a view over the rear patio and up towards Pen y Fan, and a very large room which can sleep up to four with views down the valley. Downstairs there is an en-suite bedroom with French windows onto the patio and views over towards the Black Mountains, and another double bedroom with stable door onto the patio.
