The large agricultural barn presents options for both small holding or equestrian use, with the courtyard of barns again providing potential extensive stabling.

Steeped in history this farmhouse and its barns date back to the 1700's built for the Roundhead Colonel Jenkin Jones of Cromwells army, who was a signatory on Charles 1 death warrant. Documented in historical references it was this Colonel that fired his musket at the door of Llandetty Church, the bullet holes of which can still be seen to this day. The house at this time was one dwelling over two storeys. 200 years later the Monmouth/Brecon canal was built and the farmhouse divided into two homes now over three floors. Previous owners of note were Mrs Wyndham Lewis MP who later became the wife of Disraeli and Edmund Gwynne the one time Chief Constable of Breconshire. It is certainly fair to state that when purchasing this property you are buying a real sense of history.

Today this house and its barns are Grade 11 listed and currently provide bed and breakfast accommodation to the many ramblers, cyclists and visitors that wish to discover the Brecon Beacons National Park in which the property is situated. Stunning views can be appreciated from the front gardens, in particular from the large, patio laid covered porch with its al fresco dining area. This home also runs as a sheep farm with 15 acres of land and a large agricultural farm building. The Monmouth/Brecon canal lays behind the property to which you have your own access. Although listed the barns all facing a central courtyard offer the potential to be converted into further accommodation.

It was the superb setting and easy access to the M4 that on a cold damp day 22 years ago, sold the farm house to the current owners. Back then they were determined to restore this period home to its former character. Fireplaces have been rediscovered, beams exposed, the staircase returned to its original position, stone walls revealed and exceptionally wide floorboards uncovered. Having spent so many wonderful years running the farm and accommodation the owners are now wanting to retire. Llandetty Hall Farm offers the next purchaser a fabulous opportunity in a truly unrivalled setting.

The accommodation is approached by a large covered porch which leads to an entrance hall and cloakroom.
The two principal receptions rooms are situated to the front of the house offering superb views over the manicured lawn across to the national park. The high ceilings feature exposed beams, the Lounge has an open fire in inglenook style with stone hearth and original inset oven and the Dining Room a cast iron burner recessed in a stone fire place.
At the heart of the Kitchen is the oil fired Aga. The Kitchen overlooks a central courtyard with the various barns and outbuildings that accompany the property all accessible via the Boot Room off the Kitchen.
Upstairs the landing has a linen cupboard and provides access to one bathroom and an inner landing off which are three bedrooms, two ensuite. Each bedroom has character with either open fireplaces, a stone wall, exposed wooden floors and beams to the ceilings.
