Property code: BN126

Sleeping two, this bright and airy converted barn has magnificent views from every window. Head off on foot and explore the best the Brecon Beacons has to offer

Scamper back through time discovering the fascinating history and heritage of Tretower, a destination known for its medieval court and circular tower that has set tails wagging for centuries. Your cosy base sleeps two along with a tufty pawed companion, so you’ll soon be investigating the marvellous Brecon Beacons and sweeping Usk Valley with plenty of stops for a picnic. Crickhowell promises local fare and dog-friendly pubs, and your private outdoor terrace is perfect for stargazing with treats after a busy day.

Beneath the stone exterior of this charmingly converted barn is a sanctuary characterised by its surprisingly contemporary kitchen, period beams and comfortable bedroom that has ample space for a basket. Kick off your boots and wipe down Fido’s paws at the doorway, hanging up the leads and stepping inside for a hearty meal at the table followed by drinks on the sofa watching TV. You’ll be able to rejuvenate yourself in your shower room, and Rover will love snoozing at your feet whilst you dine alfresco outside in the gravelled courtyard, but please take care with curious pups as it is not enclosed.

Your doorstep gives way to a plethora of trails such as the Beacons Way and routes through the Black Mountains, while there’s also lots of potential for exploring the village. Wander down to the iconic castle and sniff out the views or hop in the car and cross the famous bridge into Crickhowell 2.5 miles away to pad around the shops and grab a bite to eat. Abergavenny is a must for any foodie 8.5 miles away, but the culture enthusiast will adore Brecon 13 miles away and its vibrant art scene that includes galleries and glass blowing.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Spectacular location with superb views to the South over Tretower village and the valley. The 2-bed property is well-equipped and clean and is remote and tucked away in the middle of a working farm. Don't attempt to drive there in a low-slung sports car! There are good amenities in nearby Crickhowell (7 minutes), and Abergavenny is also within easyRead more reach (20 minutes), as are Hereford, Ludlow and Leominster, (about 1 hour +/- each). Great place for solitude or sightseeing, whatever you prefer Hide
