The attractive barn has a welcoming lobby, with interesting art work and plenty of space for coats and boots, opening into the spacious open plan lounge/kitchen/diner flooded with natural light. Open the French doors, listen to the birdsong and step outside onto the patio area with wonderful views over the grounds and beyond. If you decide to eat in the well equipped kitchen area then you have everything you need to prepare a delicious romantic meal, with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, alongside many other little thoughtful extras creating a lovely space to cook in. Relax on the comfortable sofas, play board games, plan tomorrows activities and embrace the wonderful views. On chillier evenings, light the ready-laid wood burner and watch a good film or lose yourself in a good book. Along the corridor,  there is a comfortable double bedroom which leads to a stylish en-suite shower room one step down.

Up the private drive, past the owners home, the property nestles on the gravelled courtyard with superb countryside views. You can enjoy alfresco dining in the private raised patio area with table, chairs, charcoal BBQ and pretty borders with lovely views. There are also a number of shared spaces to sit and relax in the nine acres of grounds. Maybe picnic by the standing stones or at the top of the garden near the trees. If you are bringing your bike there is lockable storage and an outside tap with hose available. Plenty of outside space for your canoe or kayak. The shared, spacious, vaulted ceiling games barn is also accessible from the courtyard and offers a wide range of fun activities to enjoy, including Free View with large wall projection, Nintendo Wii, darts, table tennis, slate bed pool table and high quality hi-fi system. Ample private parking on site, within walking distance to the property. Please note that the path from the car parking area is quite steep.

The owners have also wilded seven acres of the grounds to make a small sanctuary for wildlife with the creation of a large natural lake, new copses and wildflower meadows. Guests are welcome to walk around the lake but swimming and fishing are prohibited, but a wander through the wildflower meadow on a summer's evening is a real nature lovers treat.

Home to three national parks, three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Britain's smallest city, Wales is a wonderful destination for a staycation in the UK. Bordered by golden sands and surf-battered cliffs, and filled with dramatic peaks and valleys, this beautiful country is a real magnet for those who love the outdoors.

Climbing, hiking, mountain biking and wildlife watching are just a few of the activities on offer during holidays in Wales. And then there are the castles, over 600 to be exact, so you could visit a different one every day for a year and still not see them all! Add to this a string of award-winning beaches, cosmopolitan shopping cities like Cardiff and Swansea, as well as a host of thrilling attractions, and it's easy to see why Wales is so special.

North Wales

Surrounded on three sides by water, with the enchanting Isle of Anglesey at its rugged tip, North Wales offers an incredible base for your break. Head to the Llyn Peninsula to reveal sandy shorelines and secluded surf breaks, or enjoy a bucket and spade day out at a traditional seaside resort, such as Llandudno, Barmouth or Abersoch.

Further inland, you’ll find the Snowdonia National Park, home to one of the biggest reasons to visit North Wales, if not the highest, Mount Snowdon - easily accessible thanks to a train ride. North Wales is packed full of rich heritage too, with the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Harlech, Caernarfon and Conwy Castles, and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal.

South Wales

From the lakes, waterfalls and mountains of the Brecon Beacons National Park through to the winding rivers of the Wye Valley and the breathtaking beaches of the Gower Peninsula Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, South Wales is a feast for the eyes. Tread the Wales Coast Path for epic views over turquoise seas, explore the Glamorgan Heritage Coast which includes the pristine sands of Rhossili Bay, or try some water sports at Mumbles on Swansea Bay.

If you fancy a challenge, see if you can reach the summit of mighty Pen y Fan, or delve deep underground and uncover the secrets of Dan yr Ogof cave. And that’s before we even mention the beauty spots of Llangorse Lake, the Fforest Fawr UNESCO Global Geopark and Llanthony Valley.

West Wales

Encompassing the counties of Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire, as well as the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, West Wales is a spectacular peninsula. If you’re looking to spot dolphins, seals and puffins, and experience some of the cleanest waters in the country, then this is the place.

Wander the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, hop aboard a boat trip to the wildlife sanctuaries of Ramsey, Skomer or Skokholm Islands, or visit the Cistercian monks of Caldey Island. For a beach day, lounge on the soft sands of Barafundle Bay or stroll through the charming streets of Tenby, Laugharne or St Davids. And after all that sea air, venture inland for a hike in the Cambrian Mountains, the Brechfa Forest, or the Towy Valley.
