The Wholehouse

The Wholehouse Wales

A wonderful Welsh retreat for friends and family

If your idea of the perfect Welsh cottage is old oak beams, solid stone walls and home-from-home comforts, you’ll love The Wholehouse. Especially as it has a host of additional delights, including its setting in the Dark Sky Reserve of the Brecon Beacons.

Eat together around the magnificent 22-foot dining table, lined with coloured chairs. Drag yourself from the embrace of a velvety sofa in front of the wood burner to discover special details -  a snug beneath the stairs, a lilac piano, the fabulous games barn.

Outside, in 4 acres of secluded gardens, follow fairy trails, tackle the assault course, and let the children play house the shepherd’s hut. Slow things down in the wood-fired hot tub, and watch the sun dip as you fire up the pizza oven. After some stargazing, head inside for a movie in the cosy cinema room.

The Wholehouse is designed for a crowd, from the four ovens and two dishwashers in the main kitchen to the versatile zip-and-link beds. With eight bedrooms in the main house and two in the self-contained Granary, and with cosy comforts and stunning views, it’s a wonderful retreat for family and friends.
