A beautiful character cottage in a picturesque glacial valley, formerly part of the Duke of Beaufort's Estates


Pen y Garn is situated in the picturesque Brecon Beacons National Park approximately 2 miles west of the village of Llangynidr. This thriving village has a well regarded pub, primary school, church, community hall, petrol station, Post Office, local store, tennis courts and playing fields. The Duffryn Crawnon valley is also served by the local school minibus service.
The much sought after town of Crickhowell is just four miles east and has all the expected facilities of a prosperous rural town.

The beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park covers approximately 520 square miles of mountains and moorland in south and mid Wales and provides a vast space of natural beauty, inspiring architecture and interesting archaeology. The Park provides a wealth of leisure activities including outstanding walks, horse riding, water sports, cycling, fishing and caving to name but a few.


Pen y Garn is a pretty, historic detached house thought to date back to c.1600 and has been sympathetically extended and renovated over the years while retaining its charm and character. The property has been painstakingly and lovingly extended in approximately c.1800 and c.1970 with improvements sympathetic to the period of the building.

A detached large stone barn, previously used as a function room, and with electricity and water connected, provides a flexible space with potential for alternative uses and conversions (subject to obtaining planning permission).


Entered via a wooden door into an enclosed porch, a glass pane door leads through to the drawing room. A well proportioned reception room, featuring a stone built fireplace incorporating a wood burner and original bread oven. The drawing room is flooded with light, picture windows with splendid views of the garden and valley and has a vaulted ceiling and galleried landing, giving an impressive sense of space. Wooden windows and inset beams lend much character to the room.

An opening leads from the Drawing room into the kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a bespoke range of light oak units and granite worktop surfaces. Arranged around a central island incorporating extra storage space, the kitchen has integrated appliances.

A rear hallway provides access to all of the ground floor rooms, which are surfaced throughout with Portland flagstones. To the south-west of the house is a large sitting room open plan with a garden room. This is a spacious room enjoying plenty of natural light with doors that open out off the garden room to the rear garden. From this room, amazing views of the valley are to be enjoyed, providing the perfect place to relax.

The ground floor is completed by a downstairs shower-room and boiler room.

Stairs rise from the drawing room to the first floor accommodation, to a galleried landing. There are three bedrooms and a family bathroom; a contemporary white suite with a roll-top bath. All three bedrooms have uninterrupted views of the valley.

Gardens and Grounds

Pen y Garn enjoys an idyllic location offering privacy and a peaceful environment. It is set at the end of a surfaced drive, over which it has a right of way until it reaches its own courtyard, via electrically operated timber gates. The property is set in about 0.74 acres (stms - subject to measured survey) and includes delightful gardens with lawned areas, mature shrubs bushes and seating and terraced areas, ideal for al fresco dining with a view. At all points one can appreciate the magnificent views of the surrounding area.

There is parking afforded between the house and the barn as well as to the rear of the barn. The detached barn has oak doors and skylights. There is a detached wood store to the rear of the barn.

South-west of the property, a detached stone ruin and woodland, this area is accessed by a right of way across neighbouring land.
