Caely Barn description

This tastefully renovated, detached barn conversion offers an ideal base from which to explore the many delights of Mid Wales and beyond. The barn is flooded with light in the downstairs open plan living area and also offers easy walking access, with both a double bedroom and a wet room also on the ground floor. Upstairs, there are an additional two bedrooms and a family bathroom. Caely Barn is situated within the owner’s smallholding, where there are geese, chickens and sometimes lambs. Guests are welcome to make use of the shared field, which has picnic benches so families are able to enjoy a barbecue and outdoor games.
A comfortable 20 minutes’ drive will bring you to the magnificent Elan Valley area, stretching over 70 square miles. It never fails to delight and inspire visitors with historic landscapes and thriving wildlife. The dams and reservoirs are the working legacy of remarkable Victorian engineering, and the visitor centre and café are definitely worth a visit. You can stroll, picnic, hike, cycle or mountain bike, or perhaps enjoy a spot of birdwatching or fishing (licence required). Visit Rhayader, on the River Wye and gateway to the Elan Valley, with its Red Kite Feeding Station and Royal Crystal workshops.
The historic town of Llandrindod Wells, the centre of many events throughout the year, can be reached within 10 minutes. With its stately Rock Park and lake, as well as golf course, numerous restaurants and pubs, and local arts and crafts shops, it’s definitely worth a visit. The Rock Park spa treatment rooms were originally used in the Victorian era. Close by is the fascinating house of Abbey Cwm Hir and churchyard, and within easy reach are Builth Wells, the Royal Welsh showground with year-round events and the historical spa town of Brecon, home of the annual August Jazz Festival, cathedral, castle and museums. The coastline of West Wales easily accessible for a day out on the beach, within an hour you could be enjoying an ice cream strolling along the promenade at Abersytwyth or enjoying a ride on the world’s longest working electric cliff railway. Make Caely Barn your home from home as you explore this wonderful region and escape the stresses of everyday life in beautiful Mid Wales. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
