Nestling in the beautiful Crai Valley in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Madogfechan Barn is a recently converted 18th Century barn renovated to the highest standards using quality materials. Accommodation includes entrance hallway to living area and kitchen. Oak spiral staircase leads up to an open balcony with two bedrooms (one double and one twin) and a bathroom with bath and shower.

Within easy reach of Bristol, Cardiff and Swansea and less than 20 minutes from the cathedral town of Brecon, Madogfechan Barn is the perfect location for exploring the many delights and special qualities of the National Park and the newly established Fforest Fawr Geopark.
The Brecon Beacons in mid Wales is well renowned for its stunning landscapes which provide both active and passive recreational opportunities for the visitor. Excellent walking, cycling, mountain biking and horse riding routes and trails are available to satisfy all ages and abilities. The Usk and Wye rivers provide for good canoeing and for the more adventurous, there are a range of opportunities for both rock climbing and caving. The area is a haven for wildlife and for birdwatchers, Red Kites soar around the Barn. Each season brings its own unique charms.

Local attractions include the highest mountain in southern Britain, Pen Y Fan, the historic Carreg Cennan Castle, Craig Y Nos Country Park and Brecon Cathedral. For explorers there are the delights of the Forest Fawr Geopark, Blaenavon World Heritage site and the picturesque waterfalls area.

Crai Valley offers peace and tranquility to restore the mind, body and soul. It has also been awarded the designation of a Dark Sky Discovery Site of the Milky Way Class, which means that there are fantastic views of the stars and in particular the Milky Way.

The barn affords access to a wide range of recreational opportunities such as walking, cycling, star gazing, bird and wildlife watching, canoeing, caving, photography and mountain biking. A comprehensive guest pack and maps are available and there is a star gazing pack available.

We welcome pets and there are many pleasant walks available straight from the door.
