Long Barn

Family-friendly and lavishly luxurious barn for 4 guests (+2 by special arrangement). Self-catering barn with boutique-hotel hospitality and spectacular views. Sauna and spa. Pets welcome

Twenty-minute drive to Hay on Wye. At the heart of the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons.

Long Barn is a highly seductive place for families. It is bright, spacious, widely open to the landscape, and yet cosy. Its multiple levels, the oak beams, the stone walls and floors, the classic British colour scheme, the mix of antique and contermporary design (Philippe Starck, Yki Nummi, etc), and the sytlish wood stove give it so much character. Perfect to rest, there are no cars and no noise around, just the sheep and the water streams to be heard.
