About the property

10 bedrooms in three houses within the wilderness of a national park

Castle Farm sits in the heart of the Black Mountains in South Wales. It's a spacious self-catering family holiday home, bunk barn and cottage in an absolutely stunning and private location, providing outstanding views and comfortable accommodation. Its perfect for big groups of friends and family get togethers

The 40-acre farm stands in an exceptionally private location, with direct access to the Brecon Beacons National Park behind the house, its own stretch of river for paddling in, a nature walk and acres of woods. Castle Farm consists of a lovely old farmhouse sleeping 10, a separate cottage for up to 7 and a studio style barn which has bunk beds for ten plus. The large farmhouse and cottage are available for rent either individually or together, by the week, weekend or mid week break.

This is a fabulous place for lovers of the great outdoors, with superb hill walking outside the door. Barbecues are actively encouraged, either next to the river or closer to the house. There's also a riding outfit round the corner for anyone who wants to go trekking. Foodies will be in heaven, pottering around the famous market at Abergavenny and trying restaurants such as The Walnut Tree and The Hardwick. For the more literary, Hay-on-Wye is seven miles away.

Castle Farm is self-catering, but catering can easily be arranged. The dining room in the farmhouse has a 12-seat dining table, which can be extended to seat 16 or 24 with an additional table, while the light and airy kitchen has an Aga, a butler sink, a 10 seat oak kitchen table and plenty of workspace.

The farmhouse, cottage and the barn all have SKY Freeview TV, DVD player, Hi-Fi, a growing supply of books and all the usual utilities (washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher etc).
