Additional Location Information
Merryfields Barn is located in the Brecon Beacons National Park and less than a mile from the beautiful town of Crickhowell. Pen-y-fan (the highest mountain in South Wales) is 15 miles away; Walesâ€™ capital city Cardiff and Hereford are both 40 miles; Swansea and the beautiful Gower peninsula are 50 miles away and Bristol, Bath and Cheltenham are all within 65 miles. The nearest major airports are Cardiff, Bristol and Birmingham.
The Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons National Park region is a hidden gem which tourists in the know keep to themselves. There are canals, rivers, lakes and mountains all around and yet Cardiff, Wales' capital city, Hereford, Hay-on-Wye, Bristol, Bath and the beautiful Gower coast are only an hour or so away. For families, there's a nearby mountain railway, a boating lake, fabulous climbing centre and outside zip wire course, several horse riding stables, numerous mountain biking routes, golf, tennis, hang gliding/paragliding, fishing, caving and some of the best walking, for all abilities.
The area is also a haven for bird-watchers, with buzzards and red kites regularly flying over the property. There's a 9-hole golf course just down the road and one of the UK's largest cave systems at the nearby Llangattock escarpment. The area is also well known as a 'foodie capital', with many excellent pubs and restaurants and an annual food festival in Abergavenny, 6 miles away.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Excellent and friendly location for a short break in the Crickho
Very comfortable accomodation with great views across the valley. Very clean and warm, with everything in good condition. Owners very welcoming and helpful. Ideal for a short break in the Crickhowell area.
Don't hesitate - just book!
I spent an age trawling the internet for the perfect holiday getaway, and I'm so pleased that I spent the time on it. I cannot recommend this holiday let highly enough. The open plan living accommodation was huge, and also has the added bonus of being able to shut off the lounge area, if you had small ones that wanted to watch telly in the quiet. Views are amazing but as it's quite high up, this will of course mean a steep walk up from the Village centre, although we cycled mostly! We've stayed in alot of English holiday lets and this one beats the lot, in terms of cleanliness, kitchen equipment available, linen and the hosts are very warm and welcoming. You won't be disappointed, but be warned though, the afternoon sun streaming into the lounge area, is very sleep inducing!

Immaculate cottage in fantastic setting; perfect.
This is our second time back to Merryfields Barn and it was just as wonderful as the first. the barn is immaculate, with verything you could wish for (including essential WiFi for teenage son). Well equiped kitchen allowed for good home cooking and washing machine meant we washed all muddy mountain biking clothing as we went, rather than returning home with it. The owners are wonderful; efficent, effective, and leave you to enjoy the peace and quiet.
For outdoor enthusiasts the location is perfect; excellent walking/cycling. And for people just lokking for peace and quiet...it is idyllic.
What a fabulous holiday let. It is very comfortable, warm, modern facilities, well equipped, spacious and good value. What more does one want?
We, two couples stayed for two weeks in fairly good weather with two dogs. The two joined barns are lovely and light with plenty of windows and doors. Upstairs are the two double bedrooms and bathroom is a bit cosy but for night time is enough, The bed mattresses were on the hard side so if you know that before you go then you can take a mattress topper along with you.
It is a very long and steep hill walk to the big village of Crickhowell where the shops are, a few good pubs are closer. The Canal walk is great if you have dogs.
