These two properties are close to each other, along the same country lane, 100 yards apart. Upper Ffinnant is a traditional characterful stone farmhouse and Chalgrove a contemporary barn conversion; but they both have the wonderful views in common! Chalgrove is ideal for families or friends wishing to get away from it all and have a relaxing, refreshing country break. It is well-equipped, spacious and tastefully decorated throughout, and the original stone barn dates back to 1822. Set above the Usk Valley, the property affords wonderful views and there are miles of walking and cycling routes. The owners have sympathetically renovated the barn using the original Welsh stone, complemented by Welsh slates, handmade oak doors and beams throughout - all of which make this a very warm and comfortable home for your holiday. There is large, welcoming, open plan living area with beautiful views across the untouched farmland towards the peaks of the Brecon Beacons. A well-equipped kitchen leads from the dining area, which has a large table to seat 8. There’s a further snug room with chunky sofas for quiet relaxation or watching TV or a film, and this room opens out onto the patio which is ideal for a barbecue. The bespoke oak staircase leads you to four lovely bedrooms, two of which are en-suite, and a family bathroom. With the ground floor shower room, that makes a total of four bathrooms! The local area is littered with attractions. For a pampering break you can enjoy an afternoon at a local spa just ten minutes away or maybe golfing is your sport and there are two courses within 10 minutes’ drive. For families, you can go hiking or pony trekking in the Brecon Beacons or Black Mountains and enjoy some of the play barns and open farms in the area. Peace and quiet surrounds you as Chalgrove is situated on the boundary of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The area is blessed with rolling hills, woodland, canal walks and river valleys, and guided walks through the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains are available. Views throughout the entire year are outstanding and dramatic views can be seen by keen photographers throughout the day. Bustling towns such as Brecon, Crickhowell, Abergavenny and Hay-on-Wye are traditional market towns where local produce can be purchased so look out for the farmers market days and farm shops for some real treats. The Taff Trail is nearby, explore caves at Dan-Yr-Ogof, and plenty of castles to see at Carreg Cennen, Caerphilly, and Cardiff Castle is a must. The Brecon Mountain Railway is ideal for an afternoon out with the family. The Brecon Beacons is Wales’ first International Dark Sky Reserve, recognised as possessing an exceptional or distinguished quality of starry nights and nocturnal environment. Brecon is the nearest town, but the surrounding area offers some outstanding places where you can wine, dine or simply get a takeaway, and the villages around the Brecon area have some outstanding pubs which offer good food. Shop, pub and restaurant 6 miles.
Chalgrove can be booked together with Upper Ffinnant (UK6297) to accommodate up to 14 people.

About the local area

The Brecon Beacons National Park covers over 500 square miles, from Llandeilo in the west to Hay on Wye in the east. The National Park contains a wide variety of spectacular scenery, with mountains, waterfalls, lakes and caves all in the area. The Brecon Beacons is also home to many species of bird life and wild plants.

In the Brecon Beacons National Park, you will find small towns, quaint villages and tiny hamlets sprinkled across the area. Ruined Welsh castles, Celtic standing stones and relics dating from the Neolithic and Bronze Age are to be found, some inscribed stones date from the 5th and 6th centuries.

The Brecon Beacons National Park reaches its highest peak at Pen y Fan, over 2900 feet. The 'Beacons' were the sites of ancient signal fires. Here the views are awe inspiring. At the eastern edge of the Brecon Beacons, the Black Mountains (not to be confused with the Black Mountain in the west), form the border between England and Wales, a border country of gentle landscapes, with easy access to the National Park.

The Brecon Beacons National Park is popular all year round with climbers, geologists, bird-watchers and botanists. There are all sorts of activities to choose from in the area, walking is very popular, not surprising with over one thousand miles of footpaths to choose from. There are guided walks, one way walks (catch the Brecon Bus to take you back to your starting point), even walks for those with limited mobility.

Visitors interested in cycling, horse riding, gliding, sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and fishing will find they are well catered for too. The Park also hosts events throughout the year and is home to many interesting attractions if your feet get a bit tired!
