The bunkbarn is the perfect accomodation for hikers. Really close to the trails, it offers clean bunk bed rooms, with a fully equipped kitchen and a large common living room. The owner is extremely kind and friendly. The place is not easy to find. I would recommend the place if you have a car only.

Brought a group of guys here for a friend's stag party, booked for exclusive use. House had everything we needed and plenty of space for about 16 people. Heating was almost too good for Wales in November and showers worked great Brian the owner was very helpful, welcoming and kind enough to tell me that I managed to overpay him!... More

Not so easy to get here... but in the end when you arrive you find a very nice place! It is very clean and tidy, and it is not expensive at all, compared to any other hotel or b&b around! It is located in a perfect place if you are planning trekking in the Brecon Beacon.

I was in there area for some hiking and needed somewhere cheap to stay the night. This place was in a quiet area surrounded by farms. There is a nice pub called The Red Lion a short walk away. The accomodation was simple yet suitable.

We stayed as a group of 10, split between 3 rooms. Having stayed in many barns and bunk houses before, this was by far the best equipped, and comfortable. The communal area is well furnished and the kitchen has everything you need. The owner is very helpful and friendly and leaves you to enjoy your stay. The location is perfect... More

It is a few years since we were last here. I said in my last review that we would be back, so true to our word we went back. We were fortunate to have the place to ourselves and had a great few nights away. Nothing changed except the weather. There are plenty of walks and the one to the... More

A great bunkbarn. Why? Super bunks, great mattresses, clean & simple bedrooms. Well equipped kitchen. Very relaing sitting room/ dining room, lots of comfy chairs. all of this is very clean. A working Welsh farm is on the doorstep, although the solitary peacock is quite noisy during the night. Lovely to watch the ducks on the pond in the early... More
