"Paradise! A perfect place to get away from it all." - June and Martin

The Hafod and is a luxurious, yet natural place to stay. Beautifully converted, this lovely barn is set on a Welsh farm-holding with fifty acres of pasture, woodland and river meadows in the Llanthony Valley. The land is managed in an environmentally friendly way. The owners live just behind, but the barn has a separate entrance is quite private.

The barn was used to shelter sheep and cattle, and has been beautifully converted to make a comfortable and calming place to stay. Local oak has been used extensively, and traditional lime plaster, natural paints and a high specification give this Barn a wonderful feel.
