About steve sharp

As owners of Merryfields Barn, Steve and Angie Sharp look forward to welcoming you.

We have lived in the Crickhowell area for over 20 years, having fallen in love with the market local towns, mountains, walks and rivers. It was a great place to bring up our children, and now we're fortunate to have Merryfields Barn, which was built on our land. Our own house is near enough the barn that we're available should there be a problem, and yet far enough away that the barn is private and guests can enjoy their own peace and quiet.

steve sharp purchased this barn in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

“We’ve had a fabulous holiday at the barn. The area is beautiful and the accommodation the best we've ever stayed in! We've been horse-riding, climbing, down the mine at Big Pit, climbed Sugar Loaf mountain, been on the Brecon Railway – there is so much to do here! Thank you for a lovely holiday and will certainly recommend it to our friends and family”

“Absolutely fabulous. We could not fault the barn. Clean, cosy and fully-equipped. Spectacular views and quaint walks. Thanks so much for the welcome basket. We will most certainly be back again. Amazing”

“We have stayed in lots of self-catering accommodation – found the quality of Merryfields Barn to be the best. Far exceeds the literature. Will definitely come again. Very friendly people in a beautiful location.”

“The open plan living accommodation was huge, views are amazing. We’ve stayed in lots of UK holiday lets and this one beats the lot, in terms of cleanliness, kitchen equipment, linen and the wonderful hosts"

Notes on accommodation: The barn was built 4 years ago, to a very high specification. Guests comment on the lovely feel/atmosphere and many say it feels like home from home. There are fabulous views of Crickhowell and the Black Mountains and a lovely garden for sitting out, watching the buzzards and rabbits, eating al fresco, secluded sunbathing, chilling with a glassing of wine or reading that book... Outside: There are two patio areas, one of which is private and secluded. A barbecue is provided and there's a hard wood table and four chairs, for eating outside, and a wooden bench, for admiring the views. At the back of the barn is a large paddock which guests can use when it isn't being used by our local farmer's friendly Welsh cob (a few weeks during the winter). There is a separate, fenced dog exercise area. Utility Room: The utility room has a washing machine, separate tumble dryer, boiler, iron/ironing board, recycling bins, etc.

The beaches at Gower, near Swansea, are fabulous (best in the UK - e.g. Rhossili and Three Cliffs Bay). They are about 90 minutes' drive from the barn, so near enough for a change if the children (or husband) get bored of biking and canoeing!


Nearest airports are Cardiff, Bristol (both about 1 hour) and Birmingham (90 minutes). Nearest train and bus stations are in Abergavenny, less than 15 minutes by car.


Nearest amenities: Golf 400 metres; Restaurant/bar: 400 metres; Llangattock (lovely village with church) 500 metres; Crickhowell town (with many shops, galleries, tourist office, banks, pubs and restaurants) 1 km.
