Chill out in our love-nest made for two in the beautiful Black Mountains!
The cute wooden house has ALL mod cons, complete with a small, perfectly formed kitchen, a wood burning stove, and a comfy double bed with spectacular pillow views of the Black Hill.
In winter it’s all snuggling round the log burner and wonderful walks, and in summer it’s outside living in a flower-rich meadow. Plus you will enjoy complete seclusion and peace and quiet!
Please note what we say about winter visits below.
The Little House is at the top of a wild flower meadow with fabulous views of the mountains and the Black Hill.
Sorry, no near neighbours, no road noise - just a few lambs bleating and the birds singing!
Please note that in the winter, if the temperatures fall steeply below freezing point for two or three days, we cannot safely operate the water-heater for the shower at the Little House. The log burner still operates normally of course. Therefore we will make the luxury bathroom in the farmhouse guest-suite available to you to have showers or indeed a bath (!) and make a £15 a day refund to you to reflect the inconvenience.
Accès des voyageurs
After arrival at the farmhouse, access is on foot, approximately 100 metres through a small woodland. Hence the accommodation is not suitable for guests with mobility difficulties.
Please note that this is exclusively a farming community, and although we do not keep sheep on our own land, it is predominantly sheep country. So I'm sorry but we cannot allow guests to bring dogs to the Little House in the Mountains. Budgies which are well-trained are fine!
The Little House in the Mountains is for two people only. Extra guests are not permitted unless we give specific permission.
You will have total privacy, but we are on hand at the farmhouse to help out with any problems you may have, and to recommend walks or places to eat.
Simon lives with his partner Rhiannon, their two border collies, and their cats Merlin and Arthur, on a small organic farm in the foothills of the beautiful Brecon Beacons.
As their son and daughter now live far away from "home", they have opened their farm to guests who truly appreciate nature, the passing seasons, and the slow pace of life in this spectacular and unspoiled rural community.
Rhiannon is a retired Headteacher, speaks 4 languages, and teaches guests how to make patisserie and artisan breads in her traditional farmhouse kitchen. She particularly enjoys having guests from abroad, as it gives her a chance to practice her languages.
Simon is a social anthropologist by background, but also a qualified furniture-maker, and one of the founders of the Green Wood Trust in the 1980's. It was Simon, with Rhiannon's help, who built the Little House in the Mountains.
They both play traditional Celtic music and their acoustic group, Derwen, played at the Welsh national Eistedfod in 2016. They also sing in a local folk group, the Black Hill Voices. Rhiannon is the group's musical director.
Simon and Rhiannon are also keen walkers and moutaineers, and they will be able to tell you all about the best walks and excursions in the Brecon Beacons and their local area.
Although they have travelled in four continents, their hearts belong at Little Trewern, in the protective embrace of the Black Hill and the Black Mountains!
