This delightful Victorian cottage, restored with style and flair makes it an exceptionally welcoming and comfortable place to stay. Sleeping 6/8 guests in 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms, overlooking old parkland and set in a secluded, sheltered spot (rather like a Hanzel & Gretel Cottage). The cottage has woodland behind with blue bell woods and miles of walking up to Llangorse and Bwlch Common and beyond.
The cottage is set high on a bank with some stone steps in front leading up to a lovely veranda. Here you can sit out in the evening with a drink or a BBQ and watch the sun go down, the sheep grazing peacefully in the fields and the birds swooping over the old parkland with its beautiful specimen trees and old tennis courts. The cottage which was once part of The Buckland Hall Estate has been very beautifully renovated with wooden floors, lovely carpets, luxurious beds and good quality fabrics and furnishings. From the cottage there are walks through the forestry tracks up to Buckland Hill and then on to Llangorse Mountain, all part of The Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains National Park.
