Vacation Rental Description
Located in the Brecon Beacons National Park, with stunning views of nearby Crickhowell and the Black Mountains (including the Sugar Loaf and Table Mountain), Merryfields Barn is a new conversion built to a high specification by local craftsmen.
This cosy property is full of character, with oak beams and doors, floors of oak and limestone with under-floor heating, a Japanese square bath and a walk-in shower room.

The oak kitchen is well-equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. The property has two sets of oak French Doors which open onto paved patio areas; one has fabulous mountain views over an orchard and the other is completely private, with garden furniture and a barbecue area. There is also a paddock with a small stream at the back of Merryfields Barn, for the use of guests.
Merryfields Barn is situated in a hilltop hamlet of 30 houses and yet, despite its rural position, there are several good restaurants and some excellent village pubs nearby. The charming and thriving market town of Crickhowell is less than a mile away, with its individual stores, shops, galleries, tennis courts, tourist office and some great restaurants and pubs. Just down the road is a 9-hole golf course and the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, with its newly-refurbished paths, narrow boats, kingfishers, bluebells and even a large redwood tree. At the foot of the hill is Llangattock village, which its 13th century church and attractive, narrow streets.
The property is a perfect holiday location for people who enjoy bird-watching, hang gliding and paragliding, mountain biking, horse riding, caving, walking - or for those who just want a relaxing break in a beautiful environment.
