Wake up to nature

Unique places to stay on the edge of the Brecon Beacons in West Wales

Derwen Cabin

Derwen looks east, over the meadows and woods and across the valley towards the tiny village of Llansadwrn. Enjoy beautiful sunrises and perhaps catch a glimpse of deer. The cabin is light and airy by day and yet still snug and cosy by night.

Llwynbwch Barn

Light and airy, Llwynbwch Barn has been lovingly converted to a very high standard. Originally a hay barn, this is now a wonderful homely space. The main room has a cathedral-like vaulted ceiling with skylights to let the sun or star light stream in. The wood burner is a central feature with its spectacular chimney.

Hafan Cabin

Hafan looks West across its meadow and captures wonderful sunsets over ‘the Fan’, the local hill. Enjoy starry skies from the deck, toast marshmallows around the campfire or cwtch up inside by the woodburner with a good book.

  • Wonderfully snug weekend hiding from Storm Ciara. The cabin was so warm and cosy while the wind howled outside. We hope to return in the summer to have an outside campfire and bbq. Bob the cat braved the rain for a cuddle, thanks to Adam and Lou for being so welcoming.

  • Sitting here in Llwynbwch Barn, it's christmas, and I'm so thankful to be here. It's 12 years since the first christmas, in 2007, when we inaugurated the barn, after a year of patient, careful conversion work. I lived over the yard, in what is now Adam & Lou's home. So at first, this barn was a place fro therapeutic work and celebrations. Thanks to Lou & Adam's beautiful generousity, we've been given christmas refuge here from our unfinished builders' project. Reading through this comments book has touched me deeply, as so many have shared finding peace here within these ancient stone walls, calm for the soul amidst a natural world of astonishing variety and richness, in meadows, rivers and trees. All this is what called me to live here in 1999 - and though I had to leave after thirteen years I know that the guardianship of this place has passed into the best, most generous hands. And that they share this with so many - and that the land also gives of itself so generously - is pure delight. Dioch x

  • I was one of the first to write in this book, back in August 2013. This is my thirteenth visit to this beautiful barn! This time we've brought a friend from South Africa. We've had a relaxing and happy week hiking, browsing the shops, sitting by the sea and poking the fire in the barn while digging into Welsh cakes. Loved the peace and quiet and as always the time away from work and stress. This place is tranquility and I never tire of it. I love it more every time I come and I love feeling relaxed and well rested. I'll be back for another 'fix' in another few months. Happy Christmas to all who stay here, Enjoy! xx

  • Beautiful place with lovely little details. Very child friendly, big selection of dvds made my daughter very happy. Many thanks for the guitar, it was an amazing surprise for a guitar teacher! Thankyou for being very helpful and making us feel at home, we'll definitely be back.

    Rob, Cecile & Elwyn, Llwynbwch Barn

  • This has been the perfect tonic to the hustle, bustle & general busyness of the South East! We have loved the tranquility here - so much gorgeous plant & wildlife with the added bonus of the most awesome mountain bike trails. It certainly has been mountain bike heaven for us! The barn has been a fab base with absolutely everything we could need - including lots of sunshine! We have loved every minute of our stay - thanks for helping us have a wonderful holiday! I have no doubt we will return for some more peace and tranquility... and mountain bike fun!

    Helen & Jules, Llwynbwch Barn

  • Just perfect... Thankyou so much for sharing this peaceful haven. The plan was to escape & 'get away from it all' after what has been a very stressful year. This place has been a tonic to us, we have allowed ourselves to do absolutely nothing other than to immerse ourselves into the beautiful surroundings and to enjoy the peace, the quiet and nature. It's been so theraputic for us. The highlight of the week was waking up to see a deer at the bottom of the garden chomping away at the vegetation! We've loved watching the birds and seeing the spotted flycatcher feeding its young in the nest in the holes of the barn wall. The sounds, the smells and the sights were enough to soothe our souls, the beautiful wildflowers in the meadows were a sight to behold... Sadly it's come to an end, but we'll be back, hopefully with our children & grandchildren, I know they'll love the cabins! Best wishes to you Adam, Lou & your children and of course Blue!

    Jane & Phil, Llwynbwch Barn

  • Well, what can I say? Fabulous place, fabulous people. Sooo quiet and peaceful. Lovely shower, comfy bed, well equipped kitchen. I cannot find anything we didn't like. Thanks to the inclement weather we had to try the woodburner! So cosy, especially the one in the bedroom! Definitely an area we would come back to. Thankyou Lou & Adam

    Alex & Sue, Llwynbwch Barn

  • We've had a wonderfully relaxing holiday, just making the most of the glorious weather. We found the house where my mother's family lived nearly 100 years ago in Rhosmaen and spent some time wondering around Llandeilo. Sunday lunch at 'The Plough' in Rhosmaen is amazing, highly recommended. Lots of walks, lots of birdsong, lots of peace. What's not to like? We'll be back.

    Dave & Marilyn, Llwynbwch Barn

  • Our second visit to Llwynbwch Barn and just as wonderful as the first. We leave rested and relaxed with our hearts full of love for Carmarthenshire once again. Thankyou for a perfect holiday.

    May 2019

    Annabel & Gary, Llwynbwch Barn

  • What another lovely week here at Llwynbwch Barn. The weather has been fantastic all week. Beautiful clear spring days and sunshine all the way! Great to come here, as usual, and explore some more new places we haven`t already been and also some favourites. Found some new beaches in Pembrokeshire and some lovely country back roads in Carmarthenshire. Had a great meal at the Red Lion in Llangadog. The shop in Llanwrda is also great and very friendly. Get your meat from Lee Bailys butcher in Llangadog- he's the best. Hope to see you again in September. Thanks Lou and Adam, take care.

    March 2019

    Michael & Irena, Llwynbwch Barn

  • We've had the most fantastic time here in the barn, we've visited Carreg Cennen castle, Carmarthen, Laugharne, Tenby, the Iron Age hill fort on our very doorstep & lastly Llyn y Fan Fach. Llandeilo was lovely & if you have a sweet tooth go to Heavenly's Chocolate Emporium, you won't be disappointed! We've enjoyed the fire every night, here's the true meaning of cwtch! We'll definitely be coming again, thanks, you have an amazing place.

    Becky & Rich, Llwynbwch Barn

  • It's our last day here and I'm sad! It's been a restful and peaceful week, and I've loved being here. The solitude and tranquility has been breathtaking. Barrie has love listening to the owls at night. Lucie & Lilie have loved exploring the tangled garden. My favourite part of the holiday has been sitting with my morning coffee every morning, looking out into the garden. It's a beautiful, rustic place. It's been a relaxing retreat. My soul loves this place, happy and grateful. Thankyou!

    Nov 2018

    Sam, Barrie, Lucie & Lilie, Llwynbwch Barn

  • Thankyou for the lovely stay. The place is amazing. Really wish we could stay longer. Best wishes

    Sept 2017

    Leela & Dave, Derwen

  • Thankyou for a wonderful holiday. The barn has exceeded our expectations - it is beautiful and so disabled friendly. I've been so inspired by your natural environment and garden that I'm going home to create a meadow area in our garden and leave areas to be more natural for nature (not such a neat, groomed garden, I'm usually a neat freak!!) Thankyou for everything.

    Sept 2018

    Jade & Paul, Llwynbwch Barn

  • We came back for a second visit and again absolutely loved it. Despite pretty much constant rain, we managed to really relax, revisit Llandeilo (and the wonderful Ginhaus) and cooked up some great food in the cabin. Thankyou again, no doubt we'll be back!

    Sept 2017

    Tapfuma & Veronika, Hafan

  • Back for a second time. Lovely, quiet stay in lovely surroundings in a lovely little cosy house. Thanks!

    April 2018

    Sally & Michael, Derwen

  • Although we were only here for three and a half days, it felt so much longer! So easy to relax and unwind, especially without the distraction of the tv!! The only danger is spending all the time visiting all the beautiful attractions locally and not just having local walks! During our stay we visited the following and thoroughly enjoyed/ recommend them all: Dinefwr Castle & Reserve Colby woodland Garden Dolaucothi Goldmines Finally, many thanks to Lou for her advice and welcome. We have been treated very kindly everywhere we have been locally, despite our pronunciation of various place names! Looking forward to a return visit soon!

    April 2017

    Debbie, Stephen, Josh & Ollie, Llywnbwch Barn

  • Thankyou so much. This weekend has been so relaxing. The good kind. I really felt comfortable here. Lovely walks around the fields. I don't do relaxing well - I just can't, but I was able to do it so easily here. I will be recommending Derwen to everyone I meet. I would like to return sometime, maybe when the weather is warmer. Amazing hosts, couldn't have had nicer people.

    Easter 2018

    Rosie, Derwen

  • Thankyou for a lovely relaxing weekend. Our first family holiday - it was perfect! Both of us and our one year old loved watching all the birds of prey and the rare chance to see them so close in their natural habitat. Lovely walk up the hill, even if we got a bit side-tracked, ended up visiting a couple in their farm and their dog followed us home so we headed back to the farm again! Thankyou for the bubbles for Chris' birthday - we'll enjoy them in October when we expand to a family of four!

    March 2018

    Chris, Mims, Ethan and the bump!, Hafan

  • What an incredible weekend! Your Hafan cabin is so beautiful! Thankyou so much for such a lovely visit. It was just the most perfect countryside escape from busy London life. You're a very lucky family to live in such a beautiful and special part of the world. We would love to visit again!

    Oct 2017

    Sami & Joe, Hafan

  • Thankyou Hafan, you are such a perfect cabin. So well equipped and cosy - we were almost glad of rain so we could light the wood burner! We would recommend Llandeilo, Llansteffan beach, Dinefwr and Lynne Brianne reservoir. Sorry to be going home today but we hope to enjoy a pony ride and train ride on our way back. Our daughter most enjoyed playing frisbee in the meadow and toasting marshmallows on the campfire. We all enjoyed Bob the cat and Blue the dog's visits. Thanks Lou, we hope to come back and will definitely recommend your fantastic cabins to others.

    September 2017

    Eve, Matt & Nora (4), Hafan

  • We have had a magical stay at the cabin. Loved exploring the meadow full of butterflies and bees! We were lucky to have a clear night and were amazed by how many stars we could see. The cabin was brilliantly well equipped and we enjoyed the regular visits from Bob the cat. We only wish we could stay for longer.

    Aug 2017

    Becca & James, Derwen

  • Rob's birthday weekend! Lovely weekend - despite the constant rain! Snug and cosy in the cabin. Would really recommend the pub, food and atmosphere really friendly. Thankyou for the birthday bubbly and a restful weekend.

    July 2017

    Rob & Pen, Hafan

  • Thanks for the perfect fall off the grid for a few nights out of the big smoke! What a treat! Apart from the bush walk in your lovely meadows, yesterday we spent the day at Poppit Sands and it was lovely. My daughter has made friends with your cat. All round lovely stay. Cheers,

    July 2017

    Jen, Herb & Piper, Hafan

  • Thankyou for making our stay at Derwen so relaxed and enjoyable. We had a lovely time in your beautiful cabin. It was incredibly peaceful and we loved the outdoor firepit, deck and Charlie/ Bob cat visitor in particular! Thanks again for extra effort with advice re. mountain bikes & road cycle routes and celebratory birthday prosecco too. We'd love to come back in the winter. You live in a wonderful place. Thanks again,

    July 2017

    Emily & Gary, Derwen

  • Thanks for a wonderful weekend in a cosy cabin. We loved waking up to birdsong and seeing Bob the cat prowl around outside. And it was great to spend every evening in front of the stove. We walked up lots of hills this weekend and would recommend starting with the hill you can see from the cabin - loads of beautiful horses on the top. One of our highlights was the caves at Carreg Cennen castle. The Gower was beautiful even in the rain and we're looking forward to exploring Llyn y Fan Fach tomorrow. Thanks!

    May 2017

    Jessica & Craig, Hafan

  • We've had a wonderful night dreaming in Derwen cabin... the bed was very comfortable, the fire easy to light and the loo was brilliant! Thankyou.

    May 2017

    Lesley, Derwen

  • Hafan was the perfect getaway accommodation for us during the Hay Festival. With the festival just an hour up the A40 it was totally worth the drive to escape the overrun B & B's and have our own tiny slice of tranquility in the evenings. We cooked on the campfire, read on the deck and napped under the stars! Thanks for running such an amazing place to stay, we give you a definite 5 stars!

    May 2017

    Simon & Laura, Hafan

  • I slept wonderfully well and was woken by the rising sun, which was glorious. Your ease and thoughtfulness has made this a very easy place to stay in, and the views are wonderful. I hope everyone who stays here will enjoy it as much as I did. Thankyou.

    May 2017

    Elisabeth, Derwen

  • One of the best Canopy and Stars cabins I've stayed in! The woodland scenery is stunning. We were also greeted by a friendly cat who we named Rick! Loved the bunk bed style and the sofa was really comfy. Thankyou for an amazing stay.

    April 2017

    Danielle & Leonie, Hafan

  • What an amazing spot! We had a lovely 3 nights here and were lucky enough to have beautiful weather and clear, cloudless nights - so beautiful to see the stars in all their glory. Recommendations board full of treats: Cefn Sidan beach, Dolaucothi Arms pub, Llandeilo & The Ginhaus. Hafan cabin was great. The kids loved being in the field outside. Makes you realise how little you need to have a great time! Hosts are friendly and welcoming - thanks Adam & Lou!

    April 2017

    Anne-Marie, Joe, Cecilia & Patrick, Hafan

  • Thankyou for a very relaxing stay. The weather was fabulous and we enjoyed the evening light very much. The stand out sight was Carreg Cennen with its wonderful views and dark, long cave. Playing with Adam & Lou's children was a highlight for Ava and Orla and Lou's welcome was fantastic!

    April 2017

    Orla, Ava, Naomi & Christophe, Llwynbwch Barn

  • Hafan is a wonderful place for a 'get away from it all' break. The log burner kicks out so much heat which was welcome as evenings are still chilly. Lots of thoughtful little details such as hot water bottles and extra blankets and a very well appointed kitchen. We've loved exploring the local area and meeting people. We'll definitely be back! Thanks Adam & Lou!

    March 2017

    Sarah & Dave, Hafan

  • Thankyou for a lovely, relaxing week in your beautiful barn. We've loved the peace and quiet and great places to visit nearby, as well as exploring your land. We'd recommend: -Climbing Llyn y Fan Fach - we found snow & had snowball fights! -Visiting Dinefwr Estate (NT), Llandeilo - good walk to the castle, bog walk and interactive house. -Going down the amazing caves at Carreg Cennen castle where we also saw twin lambs! -Exploring the Botanical Gardens and going on the waterfall walk. The butterfly house is great & we loved Wright's Food Emporium -Walking up the big hill opposite Under Starry Skies, there's good circle route & we met some lovely alpacas! -Finding the tree house and swing, a short walk from the barn Elliot & Oscar loved playing with Lou & Adam's children. We hope to come back, maybe in the spring/ summer. Thanks again!

    Feb 2017

    Harriet, Jon, Elliot & Oscar, Llwynbwch Barn

  • Thankyou so much Adam & Lou, your barn is amazing & we've had such a greta week away. We've enjoyed all the nearby towns and sights, including castles, markets and beaches. Anna's Welsh zoo/ Manor Park was ana amazing day out, will be sure to visit again. We loved our evenings in, watching movies by the fire. Lovely owners and family made us feel really welcome, we'll definitely be back for another relaxing break, thankyou so much!

  • Thankyou for a fantastic stay! We loved the barn, we celebrated New year here and had so much fun! It’s very cosy and perfectly equipped with everything we needed. The fire in the main room is gorgeous and the smaller burner in the bedroomkept us toasty warm. We visited the Gower peninsula (beautiful & scenic), numerous castles and enjoyed walks. We’ll definitely be recommending to friends. Happy New Year!

Highly recommend the walk around Llyn y Fan Fach - beautiful, even in the rain. Llandeilo is a lovely little town (we loved the Ginhaus and Angel Bistro). We’d love to come back in the summer.

    Nov 2016

    Adey, Nikki, Aimee & Rich, Llwynbwch Barn

  • The perfect escape and exactly what we needed. Being ‘off grid’ and taking the time to reconnect - nature, self and each other! Hafan cabin is truly comfortable and has everything you could think of. The woodburner is amazing and kept us warm during cold November nights. Stargazing was definitely the highlight, but we also loved visiting Llandeilo (the Ginhaus was great), Carreg Cennen castle, the 1920s cinema at Brynamman and a long walks around the fields surrounding Hafan.

    November 2016

    Tapfumo & Veronika, Hafan

  • This was our second stay in Llwynbwch Barn, our first with our four month old son. It’s just as cosy as we remember, with all details thought of. We’ve enjoyed our visit to Mwnt beach and Cardigan Bay, watching the Red kites at the feeding station and walking around Aberglasney Gardens. We’ve had some great coffee at the Ginhaus Deli and the Hangout. Llandeilo is just lovely. The barn has been incredible to stay in and we couldn’t have asked for more. We’d love to return again!

    October 2016

    October 2016

    Amy & Tom, Hafan

  • Such fun! We seemed to have fitted so much into a small space of time, yet it’s been an extremely relaxed and peaceful weekend. Our highlights… ‘Going on a bear hunt’ - finding our way through fields, along rivers and through kissing gates to the Sexton Arms pub where we found scrummy food and a warm welcome (we recommend the lamb shanks and Welsh faggots!) A day at beautiful Pembrey Beach Coming back to Hafan… hanging out in the sun on the deck, playing board games, star gazing and cooking breakfast on the campfire in the morning. Thank you for creating and sharing such a wonderful place.

  • This was our seventh time in the barn. Another wonderful week. We managed the whole hike of Llyn y Fan Fach this time. Definitely worth the effort for all the amazing views. We got to have sunday lunch at The Angel, Salem. Absolutely gorgeous! The Three Cliffs & Rhossili Bay remain our favourite beaches. As for the barn and its beautiful garden, what can I say? It is the most relaxing and tranquil place in the whole of Wales! We will be back again next year for our eighth visit. Big hugs

  • Thankyou for such a lovely mini break in cosy Hafan. We loved our stay - our first ever glamping experience was made truly magical here. Great facilities, beautiful surroundings & views and very friendly hosts. We really enjoyed our time spent relaxing in our snug cabin, making fires, having drinks on the deck with our BBQ food and lovely walks to explore the farm. We loved nearby Llandeilo, tasty food at Heavenly Ice Cream and the Angel Bistro and strolling round the local shops and castle ruins.

  • Beauty is everywhere, in and around Llwynbwch Barn. The cottage is furnished with so much love and attention that we felt at home at once. We took lots of walks in the breathtaking surroundings. Discovered Carreg Cennen castle, admired Kites at the feeding station and found a boathouse with a stunning view - the house of a dead poet in Laugharne, Dylan Thomas

    July 2016

    Susanne & Sanderijns, the Netherlands, Llwynbwch Barn

  • Hafan is gorgeous, secluded and perfect for a weekend away from the city. We’ve loved our time here, from cooking burgers on the BBQ, watching & spotting stars and planets and eating fresh eggs to having Bobcat the resident moggy purring round our feet all the time. The location is perfect for exploring the wilderness (we recommend Llyn y Fan Fach), great food (we loved Wright’s Food Emporium) and the Carmarthenshire coastline. We’ll be back!

    June 2016

    Lily & Harriet, Hafan

  • We had a wonderful stay in Hafan, the wood burner kept us warm and cosy. It’s so comfortable & well laid out, so while being in a small space it feels much, much larger. The recommendations for where to visit were superb, we loved Carreg Cennen castle, Llyn y Fan Fach was beautiful and Llandeilo was great to explore - we loved the Ginhaus.’

    November 2015

    Milly & Matt, Hafan

  • ‘Hafan is a very special place. It truly is greater than the sum of its parts… and its ‘parts’ are pretty wonderful! The sum goes something like this… A beautiful structure with comfort, great design, lovely details, thought and kindness surrounding it. + Geographic perfection supplying rest, peace, space for thought and exploration. A child’s dream of freedom and an adult’s joy at familial happiness and harmony! + A huge dose of fresh air, wildlife, elemental challenges and a sense of natural pace and rhythm = the opportunity to be the parent I don’t always get to be and two VERY happy children!! What more could you ask for? Thank you for a brilliant stay

    October 2015

    Toni, Ru & Tilly, Hafan

  • Coming from Cape Town we have high expectations of beauty. Hafan did not disappoint! This has been an amazing first holiday since living in the UK. Thank you
