Abernant Barn has been beautifully renovated from a 100 year old stable block into a luxurious holiday home / cottage in the heart of Wales. Wonderfully secluded and set in 8 acres of private pasture, bordered by the River Irfon on one side and the Nant Cerdin on the other. The property includes fishing rights on the banks of the Irfon which runs only metres from the property. The accommodation includes underfloor heating throughout and large lounge with a wood burning stove for those cosy evenings. Outside an under cover decked area with sunken hot tub provides space to relax and BBQ whatever the weather. The village of Llanwrtyd Wells, the smallest town in Britain is only a 10 minute walk away and is well served by three pubs and a local store/garage. The local railway station is a 5 minute walk from the barn where a regular service on the heart of wales line will take you towards Builth Wells or Llandovery.

About Bernard Murphy
I discovered Llanwrtyd Wells during a mountain bike race called the Wobble. The property was a stable block and I just knew it had great potential due to it's unique location. We still spend as much time as we can in Llanwrtyd Wells as a family enjoy the brilliant community and beautiful Cambrian Mountains
Bernard Murphy purchased this Barn in 2012
Why Bernard Murphy chose Llanwrtyd Wells
We fell in love with this property after spending many weekends mountain biking as part of the green events organised by the community of Llanwrtyd Wells. Nestled in it's own 8 acres just 15 minutes walk outside the village and surrounded on two sides by river banks, the property is uniquely positioned.
What makes this Barn unique
With a relaxing sunken hot tub and it is quiet, and secluded, yet only 15 minutes from town with 3 pubs and a shop. Many events are run throughout the year by green-events such as the Man v Horse race and the Real Ale Wobble, a cross between mountain biking and a beer festival.

Tranquil and peaceful retreat
Fantastic getaway retreat without being too far away from coastal attractions
So glad you enjoyed. Very welcome back anytime.
Perfect weekend away
We had a great stay in the barn! The pictures don't do it full justice, it is completely picturesque and spotlessly clean! The rope swing was lots and fun and it was great to meet the friendly horses in the field behind. The hot tub was perfect. One tip I would say is bring loo roll as we forgot this and did a quick drive to the shop! Thank you Bernard we would love to come back!
The owner was prompt to respond. The house was clean and very spacious. Worth every penny. I will be going back again.
Perfectly remote and charming
This accommodation was practically perfect for the girls weekend I had planned. Well stocked kitchen, comfy and spacious living area, charming and peaceful location and a fantastic hot tub! Bernard was extremely helpful and always responds to any questions. I’d suggest if you are saying as 8 adults (as we were) the bunk beds are more suitable for children however we managed and the sofa is very comfortable if needed. Thank you for allowing us to stay.
For a group of girls wanting a weekend relaxing it was perfect! The house is wonderful, clean and spacious! Kitchen was well equipped with cutlery and pots and pans! Loved the underfloor heating and the log burner in the evenings! The hot tub was fab, loverly to relax in after a long walk around the loverly surrounding areas! Our only issue was finding the property more precise directions would have been very helpful as satnavs take you to a house nearby! Communication with the hosts was good and we would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful break! Thank you!
Hi Hannah, so glad you enjoyed your stay at Abernant Barn. It can be tricky to find especially in the dark but I've added detailed directions to the welcome email for future visitors. At least you know where we are for next time. ! Regards
Family fun celebrating 21st birthday
We had the best time in Abernant Barn. The house is perfect for big groups with a huge open sitting room, roaring fire, comfy beds and we even fitted all 9 of us around the table :) the lake at the bottom of the garden supplied hours of fun as well as the hot tub. Would def recommend and I’m sure we will be back again. Thank you.
