more about Ysgubor Y Ffin Estate

about the property

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.

The Estate of Ysgubor y Ffin (Border Barn) 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 provide 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. Please note - this is the listing for the house and the annexe - should you wish to book just the house that sleeps up to 6 guests please click here.

Ysgubor y Ffin is perfect for walkers -  you have direct access to a network of public footpaths that lead to Black Hill, the Offa's Dyke footpath, and Hay Bluff.

The house and cottage annexe provide privacy and tranquillity, yet are only 5 minutes drive from the nearest village, with shop, pub and post office.

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

July 2019

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

May 2019

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

January 2019

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

December 2018

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
