The Rees family farm approximately 3000 Brecon Beacons hill type sheep, which graze the Brecon Beacons for most of the year. The Rees children, Molly, Jack and George, were keen to diversify their farming business, and hence the creation of Coed Owen Bunkhouse and Ysgubor Bach.
Coed Owen Bunkhouse and Ysgubor Bach were existing barns, situated on the farmyards and used for housing livestock and wool. These barns have now been sympathetically converted into modern accommodation and enhanced by keeping many of the original features. Molly says "Baden, my father, is a skilled stone mason by trade and I knew his skills would benefit the farm in a building project one day".
A warm and friendly greeting awaits those who visit us and we will do our very best to accommodate all your needs during your stay in the heart of the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park.
Coed Owen Farm is part of an environmental scheme called Glastir. We restrict sheep grazing in woods and river side corridors to protect the wildlife. We have planted hedges with native hawthorn, rowan and hazel and created a wildlife pond in one of our fields on the farm. We try to recycle and reuse as much as possible. There is no food waste as the dogs see to that. As soon as funds permit we intend to install solar panels
We ask all visitors to kindly turn off lights when not in use and to be aware of their energy consumption. We have dual flush toilets and energy efficient showers to use water conservatively. We also have public transport on the doorstep and bike hire information for visitors and can point you in the right direction for walks so you do not need to use the car.
