Overview of Berry Wood Barn

What Oliver loves…

  • You'll want to go to bed early with the comfortable beds and Egyptian cotton bed linen.
  • The large Balinese table on the patio is ideal for relaxed meals.
  • The kids can be kept busy playing table tennis, trampoline, swing and slide.

What you should know…

  • The barn has a lot of stairs, one of which is stone, so it is not suitable for people with mobility problems.
  • You are in the middle of nowhere with only sheep for neighbours.

The two beautiful old barns making up Berry Wood Barn have been lovingly renovated to create a warm, spacious and light family home with the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere.

The barns have taken 4 years to turn into a very comfortable family home. There is underfloor heating throughout and handmade curtains to make the barn cosy in the evenings when the fire is lit.

The barn is set in 3.5 acres of land. There is a flat grass lawn and a trampoline for children to play on.

This is a beautiful property to explore the local area and enjoy activities while being able to relax and unwind in comfortable surroundings.

Interior & Grounds

Interior
The barns have taken 4 years to turn into a very comfortable family home. There is underfloor heating throughout, handmade curtains to make the barn cosy in the evenings when the fire is lit and many antiques and lovely pictures.

The kitchen is a large light filled room which links the two barns, there are French windows that open onto a sheltered courtyard. There is an antique table which comfortably seats 12, a Lacanche range with 2 ovens and 5 rings on the hob, a dishwasher and a butler’s sink.

A few steps up from the kitchen is the sitting room with a large open fireplace, comfortable sofa and chairs and French windows that open onto the courtyard. There are book shelves stacked with lots of books for young and old to curl up with on a rainy day by the fire. There is also a TV with a DVD player.

A few steps down from the kitchen there is a TV room/playroom with comfy sofas and a very large flat screen television with Sky TV, games and DVD’s. There is also a built in music system with an ipod which you can use in the kitchen, sitting room, playroom and main bedroom.

In the understair cupboards in the playroom there is a washing machine, tumble drier, microwave and a very small freezer. There is also a downstairs toilet.

The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a roll top bath and two basins, French windows open onto its own terrace with a table and chairs and stunning views.

The child’s bedroom next door with a sleigh bed and a travel cot has an interconnecting door into the main bedroom.

Four bedrooms have super king size beds and one bedroom has two large singles. The bedlinen is all Eygptian cotton.

There are three bathrooms in total all with heated towel rails and roll topped baths to soak in after a long walk. Two out of three of the bathrooms have a shower.

Outdoor Space
The kitchen has French windows that open onto a sheltered courtyard on one side that has a very large bbq and a table tennis table. On the other side the doors open onto a terrace which looks down the valley, there is a large sunbed for balmy days and an iron wood table from Bali which seats twelve.

The barn is set in 3.5 acres of land, there is a flat grass lawn called the football pitch and a trampoline.

Map, Location & Local Information

Berry Wood Barn is one of the most spectacularly positioned houses in the Llantony valley in the Black Mountains.

Perched high on Hatterall Ridge in the Brecon Beacons National Park, the views from the barn are truly breathtaking. Stand at the kitchen window and the valley sweeps away before you towards Hay on Wye.

Although you are in the middle of nowhere with only sheep for neighbours, Abergavenny is only 15 minutes drive away and Hereford is 20 mins.

Local Activities:
Walking
You can walk directly from the barn or drive a short way to find many fantastic walks.

Riding
At Llantony Abbey there is a pony trekking centre where you can do half a day or a whole day riding in the hills. Within 10 minutes drive from the barn there is a riding stables with very good teachers and horses.

Shooting
There is clay pigeon shooting ten minutes from the barn as well as a shooting school about 45 minutes drive from the barn.

Bird Watching
On Hatterall Hill, 5 minutes from the barn, there are Red Kites and many other beautiful birds.

Hang Gliding
Many people love to jump off the hills around us and hang glide when the wind is blowing in the right direction.

Climbing, Zip Wires and Sailing
There is a climbing wall for children (useful on a wet day!), zip wires, riding and a lake to sail on at a local Activity Centre.
