about the property

Priced for up to 10 staying, sleeps 10. Brecon Beacons contemporary barn near Hay-on-Wye and Abergavenny. Secluded, but not far from pubs, restaurants and shops. Great for a family holiday at Offa's Dyke.

A super house for large get-togethers, Ysgubor y Ffin is priced for 10 staying.

Ysgubor y Ffin lies in one of the most beautiful rural locations in the UK, enjoying marvellous views of Offa's Dyke and Red Daren from the doorstep. The house was converted from an 18th-century barn into a spacious home, combining original oak-beamed character with a comfortable, contemporary living style. 

The house and cottage annexe provides spacious accommodation for up to 10 guests: the main house sleeps 6 guests and the cottage annexe sleeps 4 allowing different generations of the same family to holiday together comfortably, whilst retaining their own private spaces.

Wow! What a lovely place to while away the time. The Golden Valley on one side, Offa's Dyke on the other and Hopes of Longtown on the way in. Stunning scenery and such peace and quiet. What's not...

customer reviews for Ysgubor Y Ffin Estate

Wow! What a lovely place to while away the time. The Golden Valley on one side, Offa's Dyke on the other and Hopes of Longtown on the way in. Stunning scenery and such peace and quiet. What's not to like. The cottages were lovely. Well appointed with all mod cons. Very comfortable and relaxing. Great for movie night if you get through all the board games! Watch out for the Woodpecker's nesting in the tree opposite the dining room and make a trip to Ty Gwyn cider shop in nearby Pontrilas. Michael, the host was great and a good time was had by all.

- Steven power ,

Beautiful House!!! We had an amazing weekend and the views were absolutely outstanding!! There are many fantastic walks and places to visit close by. Perfect weekend all round.

- Emma P,

The home was absolutely stunning and accurately described. The valley the home resides in is truly spectacular. I highly recommend for hikers to drive 2 miles up the road to Black Hill Trail. It goes around the rim of the valley, is suitable for adults of all ages, and affords some amazing views. We ran into wild horses that blocked our path. Cannot be upset with wild horses though! The home is well stocked, but you will be best served to purchase groceries in Abergavenny prior to your arrival. Easy drive to Tintern Abbey and a couple of castles. I highly recommend this home if you are looking to get away from fast paced life. -Tae


A uniquely remote and beautiful location, we had a great week here over half term. We walked up Black Hill, visited the goat farm on the opposite side of the valley, walked over to Llanthony Priory (and back again), had a great couple of hours splashing in the river at Clodock just behind the Cornewall Arms (a really good river spot for kids), visited Hay on Wye on market day (Thursday), went mountain biking at Black Mountain Cycle Centre, had bbqs in the sun, what more can you ask for?! - Tom


Charming and well-appointed house in a beautiful and quiet location. Nice open-plan kitchen and dining area made this a very sociable place to stay for our family group. Bedrooms are a good size. We would highly recommend a stay here. James


This is by far one of the best places we have stayed. It has everything you could possibly want! Wonderful views, we didn't want to leave, a true home from home. A real gem, highly recommended! Lucie


Such a beautiful property and setting. The pictures, as good as they are, don’t quite do it justice.  Check in was as easy as can be, the directions entirely accurate and the property every bit as amazing as hoped. It’s a true home from home with everything needed to enjoy the space fully. Highly recommended for a peaceful break. Thank you again! Guest, Paul


Gorgeous place for friends to get together - we thoroughly enjoyed cooking together, long walks from the house in stunning scenery, and luxurious cinema film experiences. Plus of course the views from every window in the house. Gorgeous! Guest, Kelly


Very special place, charming house with great comfort, gorgeous views indeed. We enjoyed the calm and the nice region. Liesbet (from Holland)


Lovely characterful house, great BBQ area and amazing backdrop for a family get-together. All bedrooms are cosy and clean, lots of books to browse and lovely walks and things to see nearby. Thanks for a great stay. Kirsty


What a lovely house, it had everything needed for a relaxing weekend, the cooking facilities, open plan kitchen, outside area and lounge allowed everyone to be sociable no matter what we were doing. The Crown Inn (a short walk away) was lovely both for dinner and breakfast. Paula


Even better than it looks or sounds in the reviews! The location is idyllic a real escape with unbelievable views whichever way you turn. We had 8 of us staying with two dogs and the space was just perfect. The house is super cosy and really well decorated, the beds are unbelievably comfortable! Cosy fires and tonnes of board games, the perfect combination after long days of walking. We are already planning the next trip back. Bethany


A beautiful house in a stunning location with unrivalled views and scenery to die for. An incredibly enjoyable break spent in a home that wants for nothing. Couldn't recommend a more suitable place to relax, unwind and share good company.” Enrico January 2019


Ysgubor y Ffin is a delight; beautifully situated, warm and comfortable and fully equipped. We could not have wished for better, Thank you!

- Sue T,

Great house tucked away with a fantastic layout that literally just swallowed 10 of us up and kept us warm, cosy, and comfortable. Great proximity to the mountains for some walking and also perfect for quiet days spent reading and relaxing by the fire." Dan 19


We had a wonderful stay at Ysgubor y Ffin! The property is situated in a superb location with views from every window! We are looking forward to returning again soon!

- Jeremy H,

We’ve all had a great time - what a gorgeous house!! We really loved it, the design is amazing, amenities are fantastic and the views from every window are brilliant. Every one in our party loved it. Highly recommend a stay to anyone who loves a rural retreat with all mod cons!! Thanks again, Anna


This is a beautiful house in an absolutely stunning spot. There is a lovely distribution of space in the house allowing for several different areas to socialise, read or relax depending on the moment. The outside seating areas mean you can make the most of nice weather. All the rooms are really nice, the beds are very comfortable making for a good night's sleep. We loved the well kitted out kitchen which had everything we needed. Thank you very much. Lydia


Lovely venue for family get together with spectacular views of Offas Dyke. A party of 10, aged from 10 to 83 there was plenty of comfy space for everyone to socialise, good kitchen and great outdoor space. Highly recommended.
