The SpaceTroedrhiwgelynen is a four bed roomed luxuriously converted farmhouse. Renovated to an incredibly high standard with all modern conveniences - roll top iron bath, walk in shower/wet room, jacuzzi. Perfect. The kitchen dinning area is very spacious so great for social gatherings. The living room has a huge inglenook fireplace with clearview woodburner and there is a well stocked log pile adjacent to the barn. The barn hosts an indoor table tennis, table football and basket ball hoop. There is a sizeable trampoline in the rick yard and a swing tyre in the orchard behind the house. Lots of space and all with beautiful views. The NeighborhoodTroedrhiwgelynen is ideally located to explore the wild and remote Cambrian mountains and the Brecon Beacons - whether by foot, pony trekking (with two centres nearby) or mountain bikes (the Cwm Rhaeadr trail is spectacular). There are also two beautiful man made gardens - Aberglasney and the National Botanic Garden of Wales. The area abounds in interesting places to visit with the National Trust well represented with three properties: the 18th-century Welsh gentry estate of Llanerchaeron, the romantic Dinefwr park and castle, or our most local attraction - the Dolaucothi Roman gold mines. We are not alone in enjoying this beautiful area, Prince Charles' Welsh home, Llwynywermod, is nearby. The coast is not far away with the beautiful Nash sea side town of Aberaeron on the Ceredigion coast well worth a visit. Our farmhouse is situated within the RSPB's Gwenffrwd-Dinas RSPB reserve where the campaign to save the critically endangered red kite was centred. Visit the Red Kite Feeding Station at Llanddeusant to see how successful this has been. For rainy days there are plenty of choices: visit the largest showcave complex in Northern Europe at Dan-yr-Ogof or take a trip on the Heart of Wales Railway Line with its spectacular viaduct crossing at Cynghordy. Warm up with a visit to the Penderyn Distillery, the only one in Wales. Finally after some rain, make a trip up to the Llyn Brianne dam to admire the sight of water cascading down the spillway. There are a number of authentic Welsh country pubs in the area to while away the time infront of an open fire or in a beer garden with beautiful views. What we love most about the area is its tranquillity and beauty. When walking on the mountain or through the beautiful deciduous woods, you will not see another soul. Getting AroundYou will need a car (own or rental) as we are in wild countryside.

All without getting in the car. This is a stylish warm and peaceful building with underfloor heating throughout, supplied by an air source heat pump. It is well appointed, quiet and has lovely extensive countryside views and a sheltered terraced outside area to eat al fresco or just sit quietly. There is parking for numerous cars.

There is plenty of room in the lounge for the fold-up bed, or it can go in either bedroom.

So bring your wellies, walking boots, coats and binoculars. You will see Red Kites, buzzards, sparrow hawks, starlings, swallows, wagtails, cuckoos, woodpeckers, crows, finches and probably lots of other birds and even, perhaps, the owl we named the barn after! Squirrels, badgers, hares, sheep and cows as well as the occasional fox and feral cat too. Maybe the odd low flying fast jet or a Hercules, possibly even below where you are standing, which is always impressive, if loud! Interaction with Guests I live on the farm in the main house across the yard, but I am often away too, so you may well not see me at all.... You will be given instructions by email about accessing the keys a couple of days prior to arrival. However, I am always available on the phone/email/WhatsApp etc. The Neighbourhood Llandovery is a pleasant market town, only 10 mins by car, along the leafy lane that leads down to the main road. Take your time along here; there are many blind bends and 20 mph is quite fast enough! Many shops, including a medium size supermarket, bakers, butchers, delis, cafes Post office, gift shops etc. A great Chinese takeaway, and the Three Horseshoes fish and chip restaurant and takeaway, both on the main street are recommended, and there are Indian and other fast food outlets. There are several good places to eat out; The Old Printing Office cafe (daytime) is my favourite, behind the shop. The Kings Head and Castle Hotels do good food, as does the Three Horse Shoes restaurant and takeaway. The town used to have over 30 pubs! But now there are approximately 10, and there a several country pubs in the Towy valley that make a good welcome and do food. I provide a detailed list in my welcome pack and handbook. Llandovery is the home of the Llandovery Drovers, a semi professional Welsh Premiership rugby side, and the centre of the small town is occupied by the famous Llandovery College, where many sporting greats have come to the notice of talent spotters, especially on the rugby field. There is a swimming pool, tennis squash and raquetball courts, bowls and croquet adjacent to the delightful Castle Fields cricket ground, next to the car park in the centre of town. A visit to the livestock market, beyond the town car park, on Tuesday mornings or most Fridays could be an interesting excursion. This lovely rural area is fantastic for the outdoors with walking, cycling, both on road and off, and we even have a great MTB trail within easy cycling range of the farm, Cwm Rhaeadr MTB forest trail; cycle over into the next valley, 30 mins, ride the trail, 45 mins /lap, dine in the Neuadd Arms in Cilycwm and ride back to Owl Barn at Penygaer. Phew! Or put the bike in the car to get there..... There are many other cycle and walking tracks through Crychan forest on the opposite side of our Bran valley, or ride/ walk out onto the hills of mid Wales or the Brecon Beacons, only 30 mins away. Visit; Lyn y Fan; the most fantastic spot....it is a delightful lake nestling in the cwm of Fan Fawr, the mountain in the view from the kitchen door; 35 mins in the car, then 40 mins walk to the lake. Magical with mystical stories about the Lady of the Lake! On to the top of Fan Fawr is a good hike, but what a view...yes, that is Somerset you can see from there! Gold Mines at DolauCothi 30 mins away by car Upper Towy valley, Cilycwm, Rhandirmwyn and on to the Lynne Brianne dam, the largest of it's type in Europe, walking/cycling, very scenic 35 mins to the dam Aberglasney; world famous gardens, 40 mins National Botanic Garden of Wales, Nantgaredig 45 mins Parc y Scarlets, Llanelli, home of Scarlets rugby 60+ mins Cardiff and the Millenium Stadium 80+ mins Swansea (football and Ospreys rugby) and The Gower peninsular, beaches, walking, etc 90 mins Llandeilo; shopping and architecture 30 mins Brecon; shopping and architecture 35 mins Laugharne; home of Dylan Thomas 65 mins Brechfa forest/Abergorgech; superb MTB trails, 35 mins Dan yr Ogof show caves open to the public 40 mins Ystradfellte; amazing walks in wonderful sheltered wooded valleys with waterfalls and caves Horse riding at Cae Iago Riding Centre, Ffarmers 35 mins Llangose lake; sailing, canoeing etc. beyond Brecon 40 mins Rallying; many events throughout the year, on the Eppynt military range or in Crychan and Halfway forests, 25 mins The area has fantastic roads for motorcyclists, and you will notice many of them visit the town for a cuppa on their travels in summer. Golf; there's a nine hole course just beside the river Towy. 10 mins Builth Wells has a good 18 hole course. 35 mins Getting Around It is best to arrive under your own steam by car, motorcycle (or even bike), although there is a train service to Llandovery which is on the Heart of Wales line, between Swansea (connects with mainline to London) and Shrewsbury. Buses run to Brecon and Carmarthen from Llandovery. There are several local taxi firms that would happily collect and return you to the farm. It's a steady climb of around 500 feet in 3 miles to the farm from Llandovery, so keep a bit in reserve to get back if you are going out for a cycle ride! More info in my welcome notes, that I will email you before you arrive, and in the folder in the house, along with local maps etc. Other Things to Note All the main UK mobile networks have pretty good 3G coverage, but you may find the odd dead spot inside, due to the thickness of the stone walls. O2 is the worst for that, but has a good signal in most rooms, and outside, of course. The WiFi speed is healthy enough to stream videos etc, and we have a Netflix subscription so you will be spoilt for choice with films & iPlayer etc Sky Sports may be possible on request, and for a small charge (~ÂŁ15per week). Owl Barn is a fantastic recent conversion of an old stone and slate building on an upland hill farm in Carmarthenshire, Wales. With its stylish decor and amazing views this romantic and quirky, yet spacious barn, will both wow and cosset you. Sleeps 4+1 in 2 bedrooms. It's a great place for outdoors activities, or you can stay in and watch the weather go by, or even Netflix!

Llandovery is a traditional Welsh market town in the Upper Towy (Twyi) valley, bounded by three rivers. Its name means 'church amidst the waters'. It has a historical heritage dating back to Roman times. There are ruins of a Norman castle and also churches and some fine Georgian houses. It was also an important drovers' town, where herdsmen gathered from all over South Wales to drive their sheep, cattle, geese and pigs to London. The Heritage Centre is housed in a building dating from around 1750 and has a small museum with interesting displays featuring some of the myths and legends as well as the history of Llandovery and the surrounding area. The striking statue of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd Fychan, a supporter of Owain Glyndwr's struggle for Welsh independence, stands by the castle ruins. In 1401 he was butchered by Henry IV. The Llandovery Craft Centre is on the site of the original meat market and is now a cafe with shops selling crafts and gifts. The area has beautiful countryside where visitors can enjoy walking, birdwatching, cycling, riding, and other outdoor pursuits, or alternatively visit local houses, sites of historic interest and castles. It is at the western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, an area of special landscape, wildlife and cultural heritage, and Fforest Fawr Geopark, the area designated in 2005 by UNESCO because of its outstanding geological heritage. The 'Heart of Wales' Railway line offers the opportunity to see some spectacular scenery including the Cynghordy Viaduct. Close by are Cilycwm, Rhandirmawn and Llyn Brianne Reservoir which are beautiful places to walk or drive. Stop off at the Dinas RSPB Nature Reserve for a stunning walk along the river and through alder and oak bluebell woodland. Brecfa and Crychan Forests offer woodland and waterfall walks and mountain biking paths. Myddfai (approx 3 miles away) is now the Welsh residence of the Prince Charles, Prince of Wales. The 'Physicians of Myddfai' from medieval times became renowned for herbal remedies and they are also associated with the local legend of the Lady of the Lake Llyn-y-Fan Fach. Not far away are the ruinous abbeys of Strata Florida and Talley, both founded in the 12th century. The town of Llandeilo is also very attractive with more upmarket shops, cafes and restaurants.

Take your time along here; there are many blind bends and 20 mph is quite fast enough! Many shops, including a medium size supermarket, bakers, butchers, delis, cafes Post office, gift shops etc. A great Chinese takeaway, and the Three Horseshoes fish and chip restaurant and takeaway, both on the main street are recommended, and there are Indian and other fast food outlets. There are several good places to eat out; The Old Printing Office cafe (daytime) is my favourite, behind the shop. The Kings Head and Castle Hotels do good food, as does the Three Horse Shoes restaurant and takeaway. The town used to have over 30 pubs! But now there are approximately 10, and there a several country pubs in the Towy valley that make a good welcome and do food. I provide a detailed list in my welcome pack and handbook. Llandovery is the home of the Llandovery Drovers, a semi professional Welsh Premiership rugby side, and the centre of the small town is occupied by the famous Llandovery College, where many sporting greats have come to the notice of talent spotters, especially on the rugby field. There is a swimming pool, tennis squash and raquetball courts, bowls and croquet adjacent to the delightful Castle Fields cricket ground, next to the car park in the centre of town. A visit to the livestock market, beyond the town car park, on Tuesday mornings or most Fridays could be an interesting excursion. This lovely rural area is fantastic for the outdoors with walking, cycling, both on road and off, and we even have a great MTB trail within easy cycling range of the farm, Cwm Rhaeadr MTB forest trail; cycle over into the next valley, 30 mins, ride the trail, 45 mins /lap, dine in the Neuadd Arms in Cilycwm and ride back to Owl Barn at Penygaer. Phew! Or put the bike in the car to get there..... There are many other cycle and walking tracks through Crychan forest on the opposite side of our Bran valley, or ride/ walk out onto the hills of mid Wales or the Brecon Beacons, only 30 mins away. Visit; Lyn y Fan; the most fantastic (URL HIDDEN) is a delightful lake nestling in the cwm of Fan Fawr, the mountain in the view from the kitchen door; 35 mins in the car, then 40 mins walk to the lake.

Getting AroundIt is best to arrive under your own steam by car, motorcycle (or even bike), although there is a train service to Llandovery which is on the Heart of Wales line, between Swansea (connects with mainline to London) and Shrewsbury. Buses run to Brecon and Carmarthen from Llandovery. There are several local taxi firms that would happily collect and return you to the farm. It's a steady climb of around 500 feet in 3 miles to the farm from Llandovery, so keep a bit in reserve to get back if you are going out for a cycle ride! More info in my welcome notes, that I will email you before you arrive, and in the folder in the house, along with local maps etc. Other Things to NoteAll the main UK mobile networks have pretty good 3G coverage, but you may find the odd dead spot inside, due to the thickness of the stone walls. Voafone&O2 are the worst for that, but there is a signal in most rooms, and outside, of course. The WiFi speed at 6 meg each way is healthy enough to stream videos etc, and we have a Netflix subscription so you will be spoilt for choice with films & iPlayer etc Sky Sports is possible on request, and for a small charge (~£15per week).

                                The Stable Cottages, which are in a U-shaped block originally date from the 15th century and have recently been converted to four spacious delightful holiday cottages, together sleeping 19/20 people in the four cottages, which are set around the old Stable Yard. Each of the four cottages named after the local resident Birds of Prey in the area has been cleverly designed with a separate entrance and can be completely private if wished or can also be used together for a large group with one of the larger properties having room for the whole party to eat together. Until recently they have been in use as stables and farm buildings thus giving the conversion a new lease of life.

                                        Troedrhiwgelynen is a beautiful stone farmhouse in the Gwenffrwd valley. It is set at the foot of the 5000 acre Mynydd Mallaen at the southern end of the wild and untamed Cambrian mountains of mid Wales. The farmhouse, once home to generations of Cawdor estate farmers was since 1967 home to the RSPB warden of the Gwenffrwd-Dinas reserve, reportedly the favourite reserve of RSPB wardens themselves. The reserve is in a spectacular area of countryside – a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation - "the cream" of Euorpean protected sites. Enjoy a walk through enchanting alder and oak woodland, past fast-flowing, spectacular rivers. You should have no problem spotting a red kite, and in the summer there'll also be pied flycatchers, redstarts, common sandpipers, dippers and grey wagtails. The house was completely renovated and the adjoining cowshed converted to a luxurious standard using traditional materials in 2010-11. The quality of the conversion has been recognised with it winning the best conversion award in Carmathenshire in 2011. Commensurate with the natural environment, great care has been taken to adopt a sustainable approach to the conversion. The house is heated by a ground source heat pump with underfloor heating throughout. The ground floor has slate flagstones or quarry tiles and the first floor has beautiful oak floor boards. The house is lime plastered throughout and was lime rendered outside. Retreat after a day of mountain walking, bird watching, mountain biking, horse riding or sight seeing to a log fire in a spectacular enormous inglenook fireplace, complete with bread oven. Relax in a Jacuzzi bath or indulge in a fabulous meal with a well equipped and spacious kitchen with range cooker.
