Set within an acre of secluded gardens, Penroc Barn sits in the beautiful Welsh countryside just outside the market town of Llandovery. It dates from the sixteenth century and is a self-contained part of a larger property where the owner lives. It has been uniquely and sympathetically converted to retain its true character and highlight the beautiful old beams. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families & kids, and furry friends (Two well-behaved pets only).

What to say? I have recently retired after running a large holiday and wedding venue for 17 years and would like to offer my home so that others to enjoy the beautiful countryside in this part of Wales. People who know me best say that I’m down to earth and enjoy life. My personal philosophy is treat people how you want to be treated.
I love spending time with my family (I have 5 beautiful grandchildren), reading, practising yoga, gardening, walking in the hills, travelling, and meeting up with friends. I go as often as I can to Italy, in particular Sardinia, and if that’s too far to the beautiful unspoilt Welsh coast.
