If you love taking your dog away with you and you want to stay somewhere with that little extra in comfort then you will be hard pressed to beat "The Barn".

The two bedroomed holiday let has been tastefully decorated. Each bedroom has its own ensuite (1 shower and 1 bath/shower) the beds are of high quality along with the duvets, pillows and bed linen ensuring a wonderful nights sleep. This part of the house is, quite rightly, the "no dog zone". But don't worry! the rest isn't!

The open dining/lounge and kitchen area is great for chilling out in the evening with dog(s) and a huge entrance (leading to utility) is the perfect place to let them sleep. There's a fully enclosed garden with lovely views just for your own use.

There are some beautiful forest walks just down the road - one from the house and others a mere mile or two down the road. The lovely owners will happily dog sit if you want a meal or trip out on your own and freshly laid eggs, home made cakes and bread are available on request.

This is a break from the real world, a beautiful, quiet and relaxing break with or without pets. It is not in the middle of a town or village but 5 miles will put you in a small town with a shop etc.

The only thing i would say is make sure your dog is a well behaved one - there are loads of sheep in the neighbouring fields and out on the open moors and it may be too much of a draw to want to chase them !

Would I go back? Absolutely ! The dog sulked for a couple of days so it's anything to keep him happy! Until the next time ........

Stayed with my partner for a long weekend at this well-equipped holiday cottage. Everything was spotlessly clean, the bed was extremely comfortable, and there wasn't a single thing we needed that hadn't already been thought of, even Sky TV and wifi! The location is stunning, and there are some beautiful walks right from the doorstep - the owners have even provided maps and recommendations of walks and these didn't disappoint. There are also some lovely places to visit within easy driving distance.
This is a lovely location to escape from the hustle and bustle of the town. We enjoyed waking to the birds outside our window and the sheep in the nearby field. There is a lovely garden area , and the owners keep free range chickens who provide delicious eggs. Home made cake is also available which is delicious! Elinor and Paul were friendly, helpful and welcoming. This is the nicest holiday cottage we have stayed in, and we will definitely be back for a longer stay.

My wife and I spent a glorious week in southern Wales, at the Barn at Nant Llwyd in 2010. Elinor and Paul treated us royally, the "Barn" was anything but a barn -- a charming two bedroom converted old stone barn, complete with living room and full kitchen, and outfitted with fine bedding and linens and North American quality bathrooms. We've stayed at vacation rentals in many parts of the world, and the Barn ranks in the top tier.

There are lots of outdoor activities, charming pubs and quaint restaurants nearby, and southern Wales is a delightfully beautiful surprise.

We highly recommend The Barn. You will be treated well.
