The Old Home Farm - "Yr Hen Aelwyd"

A stunning Welsh Longhouse only three miles from Llanwrtyd Wells, with fabulous views across to the hillside clad in oak and traditional British woodland trees and down the valley for miles toward The Brecon Beacons. The farmhouse has been lovingly restored with love and great attention to detail.  During the restoration of the original stonework in one of the bedroom fireplaces,  the owners discovered another little room that was once a children's nursery.  The beds all have welsh blankets, and downstairs in the back kitchen/utility the old salting slab, the polished through age dark oak stairs and cupboards, original corner cupboards and plenty more - the beam over the fireplace has the date H N CARP 1678 presumably either the initials of the builder or the owners of the farmhouse.

When we visited there was very friendly robin that kept hopping down to meet us from the restored old Mounting Block - conveniently sited for the ladies and gentlemen to mount their horses. The farm house is on a very quiet no-through lane - so no traffic except one neighbour and Glyn Barn which can be booked together to sleep 21/ 22 people.   The farmhouse is situated in the wild and remote countryside above Llanwrtyd Wells - the perfect area for outdoor activities such as mountain biking, walking, fishing on the River Irfon and somewhere to stay for all the events that happen in this small market town. The Man versus Horse Marathon, Real Ale Wobble, Bog Snorkelling amongst the most well known events but also have    Wheel Barrow Races, a Worm Charming Contest and lots more wacky events!  But this lovely and spacious farmhouse is a perfect place for exploring this superb wild and little known part of Mid Wales within easy reach of The Elan Valley and West Wales Coast.

There are several good pubs and places to eat in the town - that is well used to catering for visitors. This is the perfect place to be able to spend time with extended family and friends and for a larger party to be able to join up with the neighbouring barn, Glyn Barn (same owners and just across the yard).

Accommodation Sleeps 12 in 6/7 bedrooms with 6 shower/bathroom   This fine house is entered into a large hall with the original dark oak staircase. The kitchen is very spacious and has combined modern and traditional - with a large Rangemaster electric cooker with a 6 ring hob set in the stone alcove, a microwave, dishwasher.  Large American style fridge and a freezer.    A utility room with washing machine and a tumble dryer.   Downstairs shower room with hand basin, toilet and a shower.   The dining room has seating for 12 people, with two dining tables to seat everyone comfortably and there is a flagstone floor and a large wood burning stove. M H  CARPI 678 is carved in the ancient beam above the alcove with the wood burning stove, ensuring this always warm and comfy. There are also sofas and chairs in this room.   The sitting room is again warm and comfy with sofas and chairs with TV and a DVD.   Upstairs the ancient flight of wide dark oak stairs to the First Floor:   Bedroom 1:  A double bed with an en-suite shower room, toilet and hand basin. Bedroom 2: King sized bed with an en-suite shower room , toilet and hand basin. Bedroom 3: A bedroom with twin beds  Bedroom 4: A Queen sized bed - a small double or a single bed.   The family bathroom with a bath, hand basin and toilet.   Shower room with shower, hand basin and toilet.   Upstairs a further flight of steep stairs to a large attic with:   Bedroom 5: A very large attic bedroom with a king sized bed; a very large central room with a spare single bed and masses of space for relaxing with sofa and chairs and a TV - a good place for children to hideaway.

There is also an en-suite shower room with shower, hand basin and toilet on this top floor.    Bedroom 6: A king sized attic bedroom reached up a further flight of very steep stairs.    Outside the farmhouse is a wide expanse of lawn and a terrace - a wonderful place to be able to sit to enjoy the fabulous views. There is a large enough space here to have a marquee if a special party or wedding is planned using both properties. (With the owners' prior permission and by discussion)   Useful Information
