Description

A truly stunning, detached barn conversion, with such detail afforded to guest comfort, you may not want to tear yourself away to explore the surrounding area. Oozing character with high beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls, old inglenook fireplace and 16th-century bread oven. Exuding style and comfort with a wonderfully designed, and very sociable, open-plan living room and dining area complete with wood-burning stove, and a few steps down to the stylish oak kitchen. Included in the finer detail is a stunning dragon sculpture made by a local craftsman who also made the wrought iron bannister for the oak stairway that sweeps up to the mezzanine bedroom. During the festive season, Ysgubor Pantymangoed is decorated with a Christmas theme.
Privileged to be situated within the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park, there is much to do and see locally. Walkers will enjoy a stroll down to the river, or pathways from the doorstep that lead to the Black Mountain. There are ponds within the 130 acre grounds which are a haven for wildlife. Carreg Cennen Castle, and Dinefwr Castle and Country Park are popular attractions, as well as the romantic Aberglasney Gardens and the National Botanic Gardens of Wales. Slightly further afield are the stunning beaches of the Gower Peninsula, Britain’s first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with golden sands, clifftop walks and craggy coves. The market town of Llandeilo is worth a visit with its independent shops, pubs and restaurants. Swansea town offers an array of shopping, and Cardiff, the bustling capital city of Wales, is a must for a day trip with its Millennium Centre and Stadium, historical places of interest and fantastic shops and boutiques. Golf club 2 miles, beach 15 miles. Shop and restaurant 5 miles, pub 2 miles.
