A majestic farmhouse on the hillside, Darowen Barn is a traditional delight with a modern twist, including a stunning games room and luxury open-plan living!

Tucked away amid the rolling hills of Mid Wales, this is no ordinary home. Each room oozes style and grandeur, thanks to an incredible fusion of traditional charm and contemporary comforts. The bespoke and hand-crafted kitchen is superb, with fittings made from local Welsh oak blending magnificently with slate worktops and a ceramic sink.

Rustic-inspired oak beams and gorgeous slate flooring create a rural framing of thoroughly modern facilities, including a huge TV in front of the cosy sofas and modern log-burner. Beside this is the large dining table, and all of this is set in an open-plan style, allowing the conversation to flow freely through the shared spaces. There’s a second kitchen on the other side of the house; this one is even more spacious. For a little entertainment for kids and big kids alike, head to your dazzling games room, complete with a fabulous pool table, books, games and of course a docking station so you can put the tunes on and start the party!

Then, when it’s time for bed, take the charming staircase to the first floor to find all five bedrooms, all graced with breath-taking countryside views displaying the rich heart of Wales in all its glory! The master suite enjoys a king-size bed, feature stone walls, original beams and high ceilings and a beautiful ensuite bathroom with a large shower and underfloor heating. There are two more king-size rooms, one twin and a children’s room equipped with bunk beds. Two full, fabulous family bathrooms serve the latter four rooms, with underfloor heating, luxurious bathtubs, powerful overhead showers and the all-important warming towel rail.

And finally, out in your fabulous garden you’ll find an array of garden furniture in which you can sit back, relax and soak up the jaw-dropping views over the rolling hills of central Wales, hinting at the vast range of the Brecon Beacons which sit only moments away. Fire up the barbeque on a sunny day for a fine day of fresh air and tranquillity. A children's play area completes the set-up and ensures there’s something for all ages to enjoy!

A hiker's paradise of pathways weaving amid caves and waterfalls, The Brecon Beacons National Park is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful areas of Wales. A 520-square-mile park with a set of striking the Black Mountains to the west and east, you’ll find wild ponies among the dramatic red sandstone peaks, along with lively market towns brimming with charm and friendly locals. Across the park and throughout the year there is a full programme of cultural events and unmissable star-gazing opportunities.

Wales is a small, mountainous peninsula to the west of England with just over 3 million people (less than a third of London!), yet more than 400 castles and three expansive national parks! With over 15 million visitors a year, there’s got to be something special that brings visitors back time after time!

Could it be the breath-taking scenery? The dazzling gardens? The easy-going and welcoming folk? Or even the heritage railways that never cease to pique one’s interest?

Our personal favourites are the three national parks: the Brecon Beacons National Park, the Snowdonia National Park and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Whether you’re into hill-walking, hiking, canoeing, mountain biking, kayaking or climbing, or the rather more adventurous surfing, hang-gliding or even a go on the only four-person zip line in Europe, you’ll find your perfect spot amid the extraordinary natural landscapes of Wales’ most treasured parks.

With water to the north, south and east, Wales has rather more than its fair share of dramatic coastline, making for not only incredible scenery but also a superb beach holiday destination! The Pembrokeshire Peninsula which looks out over the Irish Sea promises rugged and steep limestone cliffs best enjoyed from the Pembrokeshire Coast National Trail. Along the way, you will find enchanting villages, picturesque resort areas, idyllic fishing harbours, winding estuaries, and incredible, wide-open beaches.

The Wales Coast Path traces the country's entire length, taking in perfect sandcastle-beaches and striking mountain passes weaving through the wilderness. The immense geological diversity can be enjoyed along with the extensive network of paths, while for some jaw-dropping architectural beauty, Caernarfon Castle and Caerphilly Castle are just two of the many sublime castles. While the utterly cosmopolitan Cardiff is brimming with splendid castles, arcades, and historical buildings, making it the perfect base for exploring the rest of the country!

Only two hours from London, getting into Wales is easy! Cardiff Airport, or one of the London airports when visiting South Wales. Other cities served by international airports in England which offer reasonable access to parts of Wales include Bristol (for south Wales), Birmingham (for mid-Wales), Liverpool and Manchester (for north Wales). Along the coastlines the roads are excellent, and there is an extensive train service throughout the country.

    Beautiful cottage with stunning views. Plenty of space for 3 generations of family ranging from 2 to 60 years old! Very remote but we enjoyed the peace and quiet. Lovely place, welcoming family and a stunning part of Wales with lots to explore.
