On an organic farm, with incredible countryside views, this attractive, three bed-roomed, stone built barn conversion provides character packed, yet spacious accommodation. It sits high in the Cothi Valley and commands spectacular views from many of its windows. The beam crossed living-room with its log burner and generously proportioned soft furnishings is the cosiest of places to relax and unwind after the many adventures to be had from the doorstep. Alternatively, barbequing and star gazing from the patio across the front of the property is enjoyed by many. While older children discover the old steps at the side of the barn lead to the perfect den; an airy loft with old sofas, table tennis and snooker. Peace and tranquillity reign supreme at Llystyn Farm and its caring owners are on hand to meander with guests around the many acres of organic arable and pasture land, the flower rich meadow land and the woodland: A must for anyone with an interest in conservation and the growing of good food. As you wander past sheep and cattle grazing on organic pasture land, learn of the woodland replanting and hear that water is from its own spring, it’s easy to appreciate why the farm has won a Conservation Award. Naturally, the area teems with wildlife: over 70 different species of birds have been identified on the farm; barn owls frequently punctuate the night time hours while rare red kites swoop majestically through the daytime skies.Read more about Llystyn Barn

The 5,800 hectares of Brechfa Forest on the doorstep, offers expeditions aplenty: Way-marked routes take walkers from thick conifer plantations, over gushing streams to open vistas over fields and the residues of ancient woodland. The world renowned mountain bike trails offer adventure for all abilities: The Derwen Trail provides a great introduction to the sport for families and novices, while the black graded, Raven Trail will put even the most experienced to the test. Whether horse-riding, fishing, cycling or walking you can’t fail to appreciate the natural beauty of the area and the wealth of outdoor adventure to be had. Ty Mawr Country Hotel, just a mile away in Brechfa village, with its menu of local produce and its own micro brewery, offers a great venue for reflecting on the day’s experiences. The range of activities, facilities and experiences on offer within just a half hour drive of Llystyn Barn, are vast and diverse: From shopping in Carmarthen (Wales’s oldest town and according to Arthurian Legend, birthplace of Merlin!) to sunbathing on the award winning Cefn Sidan beach. Or why not pan for gold at the Dolau Cothi goldmines at Pumsaint, just 11 miles from Llystyn Barn but don’t miss the chance to sample the hearty, traditional, home cooked food available at the Black Lion in Abergorlech on your return journey. Castle lovers are spoilt for choice but the majestic Carreg Cennen Castle, with breathtaking views from its battlements and cavens cut into the cliff beneath its foundations (take a torch!) is definitely worth a visit. With the attractive, ancient town of Llandeilo, with antique shops and galleries, being just a hop away, don’t miss the chance to re-fuel in The Angel Hotel with its delicious contemporary dishes and elegant, yet relaxed atmosphere. South West Wales, all so easily accessible, really does offer something for everyone if you’re able to drag yourself away from the peace and tranquillity of Llystyn Barn to experience it!
