Upper House Farm

Long Barn

Long Barn at Upper House & Spa is a family-friendly and lavishly luxurious barn for 4 guests (+2 by special arrangement) with boutique-hotel hospitality, spectacular nature and outstanding views. 

"Long Barn is a truly special place to relax, surrounded by terraced gardens..."

Are you looking for an exceptional holiday with your family or your friends in a converted mountain barn combining comfort, sophistication and the fun of the Great Outdoors? Are you looking for dark skies, absolute quietness (there is zero traffic to be heard), and a special place where you can wake up to the sound of wildlife and the murmuring of mountain streams? Then, Long Barn is the place for you. 

Inside, it's a blissful fusion of classic and contemporary design, high oak beamed ceilings, comfort and thoughtful, personal touches. The large glazed barn doors flood the living space with light.

Once you've spent a morning on Black Hill, an afternoon in the Spa or a day out exploring the local market towns, resting your head has never felt so good. Longbarn has two beautifully furnished bedrooms: an en-suite, double bedroom and a twin bedroom with its own bathroom, both complete with fluffy towels and toiletries. 

Outside, we've thought about your fun and pleasure too.  Enjoy a splendid stone terrace with Weber barbeque, large dining table, chairs and a parasol. On the other side, the laid to lawn garden is perfect for children, unless you prefer the acres of private farmland and the three beautiful walks you're invited to explore on our grounds.

Long Barn at Upper House & Spa is all about boutique hotel style, great service and hands-on local advice and inspiration should you need it.  Coupled with one of the most breath taking spots in the Welsh Marches, it is an inspirational location from which to enjoy the Brecon Beacons National Park, the Black Mountains and South Herefordshire.
