A very pri­vate place and eas­i­ly acces­si­ble from most parts of the UK, this Grade 2 list­ed House, and Barns, is set up ready for your own big hap­py gath­er­ing! The well designed flex­i­ble liv­ing spaces work bril­liant­ly for so many dif­fer­ent par­ties. From a grand fam­i­ly reunion or big birth­day, to a busi­ness off-site or yoga retreat.

Garth Barns are lux­u­ry self cater­ing barns, per­fect for cel­e­bra­tions for fam­i­lies and friends. The 2 barns, Hafod and Ty Nant, are on either side of the for­mer farm­yard, now a spa­cious land­scaped court­yard, pro­vid­ing park­ing and a gar­den with a pond and a stream run­ning through.
