Red Kite Barn is the stuff of rural escape-to-the-country fantasies, hidden down a long remote track, overlooking a breathtaking private forest. You almost expect to see a charming little woodcutter's cottage but instead you're met by a large, contemporary, stylish converted barn with original stone walls, characterful beams and huge panoramic windows.
The barn prides itself as a modern take on rustic, inspired by nature but with an urban twist. You get the rustic from the bespoke ironmongery on handcrafted oak doors, cosy bathrooms with tadelackt floors, sheep-wool throws and rugs to keep you warm, and a bespoke oak staircase. The urban twist comes in the form of funky LED lighting, a large cinema room with HD projector, and a luxurious bath heated by the ground-source heat pumps which power the building. There's also a large living area with open fireplace, and an outdoor decking area to sit and gaze at the stars. It really is an architect's rural masterpiece, made even better by all the restored art and furniture.
Plus, if you've ever visited this part of Wales before then you'll understand when we say this is quite possibly one of the most idyllic rural stretches of rolling hills, lakes, forest, mountains and valleys that Wales has to offer – all dotted with charming pubs, farm shops and glorious walking trails. The barn sits in its own 80-acre private estate – where, incidentally, you'll also find the rather wonderful Red Kite Tree Tent.
The Owner Says
Mobile reception is very limited here, but it all adds to the remote experience and there is a landline for emergencies.
