7 night Price
This wonderful, detached property is a stunning example of a Welsh long barn and sits within the Hafod Forestry Commission Estate, which occupies about 500 acres of the Ystwyth Valley. The estate was designed in the late 18th century and although the original mansion is gone, the historic walks network has been restored to allow you to enjoy this wonderful landscape.
The owners have lovingly restored this property and created something truly luxurious. It’s all on one level and so much detail has gone into it, from the fixtures and fittings to the lighting and soft furnishings. The large open plan living, dining and kitchen area leads directly to the large garden via bi-fold doors, out onto the decked terrace with a firepit and barbecue. The master bedroom has a handmade feature kingsize bed and a huge en-suite bathroom with double ended free standing bath, twin basins and a walk-in wetroom with special light effect to tell you when the water is warm! There are two further bedrooms, each with their own special lighting effects, the twin has a ‘cosmic’ ceiling and the kingsize bedroom has romantic, twinkly drapes around the bed. A ‘Jack and Jill’ family bathroom can be accessed from the kingsize bedroom or from the hallway and has an eye catching copper sink set within an oak barrel. There is also an additional cloakroom with toilet. Access to the property is via an unmade stone road which is unlit.
The views are amazing and you’ll probably while away many an hour watching the variety of visiting birds and often see red kites and buzzards circling overhead. From the doorstep of the barn, the estate can be explored on foot (there are five way-marked walks of varying length and difficulty), where there are streams, waterfalls and rustic bridges to discover. It provides an excellent base for exploring and taking part in activities such as canoeing, mountain biking, horse riding and walking, or just relaxing in a ‘get away from it all’ location.
Nearby attractions include Devils Bridge, first built by monks in the 11th century and from where you can take the Vale of Rheidol steam train that meanders through the valley to the seaside town of Aberystwyth, and the Silver Mountain Experience, an 18th-century silver-rich lead mine. A 30-minute drive will bring you to the attractive Ceredigion coastline with an array of beaches and coastal towns and villages. The Pendre Longbarn is a unique property in an idyllic spot so come and see for yourself! Beach 15 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
The Pendre Longbarn can be booked together with Pendre Isa (GVRUK30091) to accommodate up to 8 guests.
