Property Type: 
Historic holiday farmhouse sleeping 10, ideal for weekends with family and friends near Hay-on-Wye and the Wye Valley

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
National Trust - Cwmmau Farmhouse, Herefordshire, sleeps 5-10 in 5 bedrooms.

Cwmmau Farmhouse is a great spot to get a group together, for a large family holiday, to celebrate a milestone birthday, or simply to see old friends. Set in the countryside with expansive views and a large lawned garden complete with wildflower fields all around, it's easy to imagine you're living a simpler life when you spend time here. Gather everyone in this wonderful black and white house and make the most of time well spent in the country. Or enjoy this house as a base for visiting Hay-on-Wye, exploring the Wye Valley or getting involved in outdoor activities in the Brecon Beacons.

The pretty 17th-century timbered building owned by the National Trust has plenty of original features like elm wood floors and wood panelling. There's a parlour with table, chairs, sideboards and an Esse wood burning stove in the vast fireplace. A separate dining room has another big table with a mix of long benches and chairs, set against flagstones, so you'll find plenty of places to eat together. The wood panelled sitting room has a mix of plush red sofas and another wood burner to fend off any evening chills after a day exploring the hills.

The farmhouse style kitchen is the most modern part of the house, with everything you need for your holiday. History buffs will love the separate old kitchen and dairy room too, which still retain original stone worktops and flagstone floors as well as offering a fascinating glimpse at what life at Cwmmau must have been like.

Upstairs are 5 bedrooms (4 doubles and a twin, although one double can be a twin on request). The master has a 4 poster bed, while another has a Jacobean tester bed. Thanks to the quirky historical interior, several bedrooms are accessed from their own landings - one double with a bathroom, and a twin bedroom off the back staircase, great if any of your party like a bit more space away from everyone else.
