4 4 2

A beautiful country farmhouse in the picturesque village of Crickhowell. This period family home comes with a thriving bunkhouse, ideal for running a business from home. The farmhouse has been refurbished by the present owners to combine modern, energy efficient comforts with period features.

An opportunity to not only live in a beautiful, period former farmhouse with much character but also, to perhaps, have a change of lifestyle and run a thriving bunkhouse business from home. The main house dates back to the 1870’s, whilst the barn is believed to date back further, circa 1840’s. The farmhouse offers a true, country family home in a delightful, rural setting and yet, within a few miles of the popular village of Llangattock and the picturesque town of Crickhowell. The farmhouse has been refurbished by the present owners to combine modern, energy efficient comforts with period features. Entering through a pitched entrance porch with glazed sides and room for boots/coats, the front entrance door opens into a spacious kitchen/living/dining room. This family room has a fitted, rustic style kitchen with wooden cupboards, slate worktops and deep ceramic sinks. Set into a stone alcove with wooden lintel over is a 2 oven Aga with hotplate. Continuing past the kitchen is the cosy sitting area with wood burning stove and views through the conservatory to the Brecon Beacons countryside beyond. This area also affords ample space for a dining table and chairs. The conservatory is glazed to all sides with a door to a spacious utility boot/room. Off the open plan room are 2 further reception rooms, a snug with a wood burning stove and a second room, presently used as an office. The ground floor rooms have predominately sash windows and all overlook the gardens and grounds of the property. The interior of the house contains a wealth of features with riven limestone, tiled floors, exposed timbers and stone walls, wood burning stoves and sash windows. Alongside the main house is an annexe which has the potential, subject to some modernisation, for guest accommodation or dependent family member or perhaps, a work from home office/studio. The annexe has a ground floor room with open outlook to the rear, a wooden staircase to a first floor spacious room (possible bedroom or studio/office) a small 2nd bedroom and a bathroom.

First Floor

A wooden staircase, with turned balustrade, hand rail and newel posts, leads from the open plan family room to a spacious first floor landing. To the rear of the house, with superb views, are 2 bedrooms (one presently used as a dressing room). To the front is the Master bedroom en-suite with period style bathroom, a second bedroom and the family bathroom, again finished in a period style. The windows are sash windows adding further character to these generously sized bedrooms.

Step Outside

Continue up a country lane above the village of Llangattock, yet only a few miles from ‘A’roads, and enter another world of peace, tranquillity and beautiful countryside within the Brecon Beacons National Park. Wern Watkin is approached via a long driveway leading to a large courtyard with ample space for parking and turning. Set around the courtyard, forming a ‘U’ shape is the main farmhouse with the annexe and ancillary buildings to one side and the bunkhouse to the other. To retain privacy, the bunkhouse gardens and outside seating areas are away from the farmhouse which has its own, extensive natural gardens with the most superb views. Set within 20.7 (approx.) acres of glorious gardens and grounds are unimproved hay meadow, and conservation ground grazed by ponies and cattle with extensive wild flowers including many orchids, a large area of productive coppiced semi-ancient woodland, streams, rare marshland and wild flower meadows..


Located above the village of Llangattock, within the Brecon Beacons National Park, Wern Watkin commands magnificent views over miles of unspoilt mountainsides, from the Sugarloaf to the central Brecon Beacons and along the Usk Valley. Within easy walking distance of Wern Watkins lie the Llangattock cave complex as well as the climbing crag and open moorland. Within a short drive are the remainder of the Brecon Beacons, the scenic Wye and Usk river valleys and a wealth of industrial heritage in the Welsh valleys centered around the World Heritage site of Blaenavon. The Monmouth and Brecon Canal runs through the village where a recently opened wharf can be found with a number of narrow boats available for hire. The village has a restaurant and the local public house is being refurbished. The area is renowned for its many walks, cycle tracks, bridleways and general outdoor activities...

The Bunkhouse

One of only a handful of bunkhouses to be rated 5 star by the Visit Wales, this fully fitted attractive bunkhouse sleeps up to 30 people in 7 en-suite bedrooms, 5 bedrooms with shared bathrooms and 2 'leader' rooms each accommodating 2 people.

The bunkhouse is well finished with underfloor heating throughout and a separate drying room. The bunkhouse is run as a thriving business with access to numerous outdoor activities, literally on the doorstep.

With the bunkhouse is the option to add a marquee which attaches to the patio and a short distance away is a 24ft Yurt set on permanent base.
