A secluded Welsh retreat thoughtfully designed for large gatherings becomes the perfect home for all ages. It’s a ten-bedroom dose of immaculate modern Country magic amid the soaring grandeur of the Brecon Beacons. Sleeping 16 in the farmhouse, with another 4 in The Granary, this jewel offers space in abundance to reconnect, revitalise, and enjoy being in the moment.
Bring your kids, your family, your friends, and a couple of your four-legged friends to conquer Pen y Fan, take a boat on Llangorse Lake then head back to pop a bottle of fizz, light a blazing fire and enjoy a palette of stone, slate and aged oak at this rustic beauty.
Grab a book and retire to a cosy corner or get everyone up beneath the disco balls. Embrace al-fresco dining, toast marshmallows around the firepit, savour late-night drinks among friends or just pause and take in the views. To top it all off, a tree is planted for each booking!
It’s going to be a whole lot of fun at The Wholehouse.
The Wholehouse offers outdoor play aplenty for your whole gathering and welcomes a couple of well-behaved dogs too. With four acres of private grounds alongside 400 acres of lush farm pasture ripe for roaming.
Gather around the fire pit, watch the sunset over panoramic views of the Beacons in the eight-seater, wood-fired hot tub, and dine in the al-fresco living space with BBQ and Pizza Oven.

Children’s imagination will come to life with the shepherd’s hut and the mud kitchen. Introduce them to the pedal tractors and the trampoline in the Old Sheep Shed or play French boules on the lawns. Remember what being together feels like.
As the wall art states: Gather, Roam, Rest, Graze and Cwtch. That’s Welsh for a hug, by the way. You’ll want to do a lot of that in these warm, comfortable lodgings.
