Upper Valley Farmhouse and Barns consists of a beautiful classic whitewashed 17th Century Welsh Farmhouse (Cwmwr Uchaf) as well as a traditional stone-built 18th Century Barn that has just been sympathetically renovated to a high standard. Both luxury self-catering cottages are located in a wonderful rural location surrounded by a working farm, offering true peace and quiet and the most wonderful views.
The Farmhouse is a little haven tucked away upon a hillside, in an idyllic, quiet setting with plenty of fresh air and greenery. A perfect rural retreat for a couple or for all the family. The Self Catering Farmhouse and Barns are Dog Friendly. The Farmhouse has no distractions such as wi-fi and modern technology as we have actively chosen not to provide it. This is a place to escape to, to get away from all the stresses and pressures of life and truly unwind. There's an amazing collection of rare and antique books dotted around the Farmhouse waiting to be read in front of one of the roaring fires as well as lots of family games to be played, there is also a lovely upright piano if you feel like tinkling the ivories. Wonderful hillside walks start from directly outside the front door and there are plenty of places to visit in the local area.
The beautifully converted Barns are light and airy with exceptional views down and across the valley. Here you can stay connected to the outside world - there is wi-fi throughout. You can relax in the cinema room, in the hot tub or just sit back and listen to music in the drawing room. Many of the rooms retain original features, such as exposed oak beams and each room has been carefully and thoughtfully created to ensure that guests can relax in wonderful surroundings in the utmost comfort.
There are some beautiful local walks directly from the doorstep – up to the top of the mountain and back, over the valley to the local Pub or of course you could just stay put, stoke up the fire and relax with a good book.
