About the property

7 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, Private Pool and Hot Tub, Pool table

Cae Madog Barn features spacious luxury holiday accommodation in a quiet rural location at the foot of the Cambrian Mountains with easy access to many local activities and places of natural beauty in the stunning scenery of Wales.

Cae Madog Barn Holiday Cottage sleeps 16 people in 7 bedrooms: 2 with king size beds, 2 with double beds, 2 with two single beds and 1 with 2 sets of bunk beds. One double room has an ensuite bathroom and there are two other shower rooms plus a family bathroom which has a bath with shower above.

Enjoy the countryside of Wales with a luxury holiday amidst stunning scenery and swim in your own private heated swimming pool or lounge in the hot tub, enjoying breathtaking views of the Cambrian Mountains.

You have exclusive use of your own fabulous outdoor heated swimming pool. Although there are a great many activities to get involved in and numerous places to visit in Wales, you may just want to spend the afternoon floating in the pool, watching the red kites soar in the sky. On cooler days, sink into the luxury of your hot tub and enjoy the outstanding views, snug in your own log cabin.

As a holiday cottage with an exclusive swimming pool and hot tub, we are highly sought after for large parties. But even when you’re not in the pool or the tub, you’ll enjoy the peaceful outdoor space at Cae Madog Barn; when you’re sitting on the patio, the Twymyn Valley is spread out before you with rolling hills in every direction, and you can picnic or have a barbeque in the summer sunshine. Both adults and children are sure to enjoy the detached games room with its pool table.

Explore Snowdonia, climb Cader Idris, visit the renowned Centre for Alternative Technology or King Arthur’s Labyrinth. Half an hour’s drive takes you to the beautiful sandy beaches at Aberdovey, Barmouth and Borth, and right on your doorstep you can enjoy the walks and breathtaking views of the Cambrian Mountains.

Try horse riding, fishing, clay pigeon shooting, rallying, quad bikes, bird and badger watching, sailing, mountain biking around the lakes and golf. Visit the bustling market towns of Newtown and Machynlleth.

About Simon and Gemma

We have lived in Wales for 30 years and bought the Barn about 10 years ago. It was semi-derelict at the time and renovating it to a high standard has been a labour of love! We make sure we live in the property ourselves a couple of times a year and invite members of our large family to stay so we can 'road test' everything to make sure it's got everything you want for a fantastic family holiday.

Why Simon and Gemma chose Llanbrynmair

Plenty of room for multiple families but with space to escape from all the hustle and bustle.

I booked this for my daughters hen party gathering as it ticked all the boxes. The place was perfect making the stay extra special. Spotlessly clean, well equipped in a picturesque location. Bedrooms warm and comfortable with beds made up on arrival. It had the most impressive view imaginable, especially whilst relaxing in the hot tub with a glass of wine! Lots of space in lounge area and huge dining table that meant our party of 16 could all sit comfortably together for meals. Just perfect and couldnt have been better. Would definately recommend for family gatherings etc.

Thank you Simon and Gemna

Lovely barn with character and comfort

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here recently and had a wonderful time. The location is great for walking without driving but has nice towns nearby too. The accommodation was perfect for us (16 of us) plenty of good quality comfortable chairs and beds and could all fit around the dining table comfortably too. One of the best places we’ve stayed in.
