Full of character, this quirky one-bedroom apartment boasts some truly magnificent views. Star gaze by night, dine alfresco on the balcony or head off to tackle the summit of Pen y Fan.

Nestled in one of the most beautiful parts of the Brecon Beacons National Park, with mountains, reservoirs, great country pubs and views for miles. The cathedral town of Brecon lies in one direction, Crickhowell and foodie haven Abergavenny lies in the other, with Hay-on-Wye a delight for rummaging through book shops and antique stores. There are numerous trails for walking, cycling and riding throughout the Brecon Beacons; or try sailing, paddle boarding and kayaking at Llangorse Lake. Train enthusiasts will love the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway whilst avid historians wouldn’t want to miss the Big Pit Mining Museum. There is a shop, pub and restaurant within 4 miles.

Comprising the top floor of Cantref House, this bright and colourful self-contained apartment is surprisingly spacious and  benefits from its own entrance which is accessed up 26 outdoor metal steps, making this unsuitable for children, infants and those with mobility issues. On entering you will find a very well-equipped kitchen with an electric oven and induction hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, coffee machine, and toaster make mealtimes pleasurable. Dine alfresco morning, noon and night on the balcony and make the most of the mesmerising dark skies with the telescope. From the kitchen you enter the cheerful living room with two sofas, which boasts fantastic views towards the Brecon Beacons, and the electric wood burner effect fire makes for a cosy evening. Down a small hallway you will find the inviting bedroom with super comfortable king-size bed where you will wake to wonderful views. After all of your walks taking in the every changing scenery of the surrounding areas, enjoy a shower in the stylish bathroom.

The Top floor of Cantref House made for a very comfortable two weeks holiday. We felt right at home. We had great weather so made good use of the balcony but if it was a little windy the kitchen was a nice sunny place also. Sadly we were never awake late enough to use the telescope. The location was very quiet, lots of bird song and a cheerful CockRead moreerell! Plenty of walking nearby and from the doorstep. I would definitely recommend staying here. The welcome basket is by far the best we've had. Hide

The property was lovely and in the most beautiful location. Mrs Jenkins was so nice and had left all sorts of little extra touches that really made the difference (home made bread and welsh cakes and fresh flowers from the garden) You can walk out to the hills from the door should you wish (be fit enough and have the required gear) but there are soRead more many places to walk within easy driving distance you will be spoilt for choice. Would highly recommend if you want a peaceful getaway holiday. Hide

Lovely welcome from Sheila and Peter. Accommodation was extremely well equipped. It was so relaxing sitting outside with a cup of tea watching a real variety of bird including a greater spotted woodpecker and a Kite ! The walking from the accommodation was well marked and relatively easy - a mixture of fields., bridleways out onto open hillsides orRead more joining the Brecon canal. A couple of harder walks within easy access including Pen y Far. Great accommodation and lovely area. See you again. Hide
