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 and let the children play house in 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.

Guest Reviews

What an amazing place to stay! The Wholehouse is absolutely idyllic. The entire family experienced the stay and the age range is from 10 months to age 70! Every single age group is catered for. There are so many activities to enjoy and the 'Wholehouse' offers a serene and peaceful environment allowing everyone to relax - in the hot tub, the cinema, the barn or the adventure playground! The mud kitchen was a great hit with the children. Huge thanks for a wonderful experience in a beautiful house!

The Wholehouse was perfect in every way possible. We had the best family Christmas with everybody included and feeling welcome. The well equipped kitchen made all the cooking easy. Everything had been thought through. The house is like a child friendly family home and the only problem we now have is that our grand kids will expect this every year!
