Property code: BN024

Private yet accessible, this charming period property is the perfect bolthole for family getaways in the Brecon Beacons.

The remote cottage, perched high on the hillside and boasting spectacular panoramic views, is perfectly placed for enjoying long countryside rambles and romantic cycle rides through the Brecon Beacons National Park. Take a stroll into the pretty nearby village of Talybont-on-Usk (1.5 miles) for a traditional pub lunch or enjoy an activity-filled afternoon out on the water at Llangorse Lake (8.5 miles).

 

A private track leads to this charming cottage. The period property is brimming with character, thanks to its chapel-style windows, quarry tiles and original fireplace. After a tiring day of adventure, rustle up a tasty meal in the light and bright kitchen/diner, before snuggling up in front of the cosy wood burner with a glass of wine and a good film on the TV. Relax aching limbs in the gorgeous roll-top bath, before retiring to one of the quaint bedrooms, both of which boast glorious countryside views. On a summer’s evening, embrace your rural surroundings and dine alfresco in the delightful garden, soaking up the peace and tranquillity.

 

You really are spoilt for choice when it comes to walks in the area and mountains to climb. One option is the trail walk which starts in the riverside village of Llangynidr, following the canal to Tor y Foel. The views from its summit are truly breathtaking, looking out over the reservoir and towards Sugar Loaf Mountain. There’s also a traditional country pub en route, to refuel. Llangorse Lake makes a great family day out. It’s the largest natural lake in Mid and South Wales and is surrounded by a patchwork of lush green fields. You can launch your own boat on the water or hire one of the many vessels, including rowing boats, canoes and stand-up paddleboards.

A lovely cottage in a wonderful setting in the heart of the Brecon Beacons. Ashford Cottage was comfortable and clean providing everything for an enjoyable week's family holiday. Good outside space for eating or just watching the changing weather over the mountains. We enjoyed local attractions such as the Brecon Mountain Railway, National ShowcaveRead mores, Llangorse lake and the Henrhyd falls. Further afied we would recommend Carreg Cennen castle, and the red kite feeding station at Llandeusant. Hide

Ashford Cottage is as beautiful as the photos! The cottage is historic and wonderfully renovated, has spectacular views, is private but with access to the canal towpath at the end of the driveway, and has an exceptionally well-equipped kitchen for it's size. The location is perfect for exploring and hiking the Brecon Beacons in all directions. And Read morethe wood-burning stove offers cozy comfort on colder rainy days. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there and would definitely return!!! Hide

Ashford Cottage is a peaceful , comfy location from which to explore the Brecon beacons and surrounding area. The elevated site on the hillside provides great scenic panorama and dark skies star gazing at night to the soundtrack of owls.

Fantastic cottage, in a lovely location, well equipped with everything you need. It feels very remote because of its position, but has local pubs, and a village shop a short walk down the canal tow path. A great place to get in touch with nature, and wind down.
