Llangynidr is 1 mile away with canal walks, a tennis court and two excellent pubs. Try the outdoor activities available at Llangorse Activity Centre with its climbing wall and Cantref Adventure Farm, both with pony trekking centres. Hire a kayak and paddle along the Brecon and Monmouth Canal, or walk along the River Wye and the River Usk. The Henry Vaughan Walk along The Brinoyre Tram Road winds through the scenic and historic Talybont valley or immerse yourselves in Welsh cultural history with a visit to one of many historic houses, gardens and castles.

This delightful cottage is much loved and full of character, with oak beams and exposed stone walls complemented by fresh cream interiors and comfortable furnishings making this a welcome retreat. The neatly fitted kitchen has a gas hob and oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washing machine. The dining area has a lovely, original quarry-tiled floor and a table perfect for romantic mealtimes. Upstairs, the lovely and light living room has large skylights to make the most of the fabulous far-reaching views across the valley. Large oak beams and exposed stone walls featuring little nooks with the doors all ledge and brace, a nod is given to the historic design of this lovely cottage.

Lovely, cosy quirky cottage for two. Equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Loved the personal touches like tea/ coffee/ milk/ bread butter and home made jam on arrival! We would definitely stay again. Lots of circular walks on the doorstep and beautiful views.

The cottage is very clean and near great hiking spot. The bed is a queen size (140cm) with a spring mattress so it bounces a lot. The house is few meters away for a very busy road with big trucks and cars that you can hear from the cottage all day (and stil a bit at night) - even with closed windows. There is no curtains or shutters in the living rRead moreoom next to the bedroom so if you like to sleep with open door - you might be disturbed by the street lamp at night that enlighten a lot.

A very well equipped cottage within easy reach of lots of fantastic walks, some of the side roads were a bit narrow but plenty of places to pull in to let traffic pass. Would definitely visit again.

Lovely cottage, clean and cozy, located in the heart of the Brecon Beacons. Ample space in the hallway for dirty/wet boots/coats. Rear yard was ideal for the dog! Living room was cosy with large skylights allowing plenty of sunlight in. Underfloor heating in the shower room was a bonus! Lovely local pub opposite, would advise pre-booking for a mealRead more (dog friendly). Nice walks from the cottage. Hide

Really lovely, cosy cottage. Very clean & well equipped with high quality kitchen wear, bedding, towels etc. Fab hosts. Local busses are great to go to Brecon, Crickhowell, Abergavenny etc. Car park space was brilliant as didn't use car once through our break. Lovely local pub, best to book if you want to eat. .....Perfect retreat. THANK U.

Lovely, well equipped cottage in a good position for walking and visiting the surrounding countryside, with a thoughtful owner. We were there during a heatwave. The downstairs stayed relatively cool, but upstairs was hot. The owner offered us a fan, but we managed without. Be aware, though, it's on a main road, so if you're around in the day and neRead moreed the upstairs windows wide open, there will be traffic noise. Overall, we really enjoyed our visit, in spite of the heat. Hide
