With its nearest neighbours almost 1 mile away, this peaceful cottage provides larger or extended families with the perfect secluded getaway in the Brecon Beacons.

Nestled amidst the trees, this charming 17th-century Welsh longhouse is perfect for explorers of all ages, as well as those with four legs. Boasting panoramic views across the majestic Black Mountains, this bolthole sits to the west of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Adventure the days away before returning home to light the wood burner and curl up beneath old oak beams.

Make your way through the entrance hallway – perfect for leaving muddy boots and coats – and into the farmhouse-style kitchen. Rustle up delicious treats which can be plated up at the breakfast table or in the sociable dining room where a flagstone floor, traditional ornamental fireplace and beautiful cabinets exude warmth and character. For a moment of peace and quiet, step down from the kitchen to find yourself in the handy utility room which houses a comfortable pair of armchairs sitting in front of the original bread oven and kitchen range. Spend lazy evenings in the lounge cosied up in front of the roaring wood burner or step out of the French doors and bask in the sunshine on the patio where you can fire up the BBQ for an easy feast. When it’s time to rest your heads, make your way to the first floor where three bedrooms with quirky sloping ceilings await. Freshen up in the walk-in shower or enjoy a soak in the tub to start your day.

Head straight from your door and tread well-trodden tracks, being sure to keep your eyes peeled for red kites which are known to reside nearby. A 30-mile trip will take you to the highest peak in South Wales, Pen-y-Fan, or stay closer to home and visit the nearby town of Llandeilo where you can visit the Heart of Wales railway line. Travel 4 miles to Carreg Cennen Castle which is steeped in history and boasts breathtaking views.

We loved our stay. The weather wasnt good to us but the log fire kept us warm and toasty. We went with our Honda CRV and VW Up and both cars were fine on the track, we just had to go slow in the Up. We had a great firework free New Years. Our 13.5 year old lab loved the peace and quiet. Would love to go back in the summer and sit outside and watch Read morethe stars. We managed to get some phone reception outside the house under the big tree. Will definitely be back soon. Hide

Beautiful firework free location, lovely quiet with a gorgeous view, great for star spotting at night. Its a warm, cosy, clean and comfy cottage.

Large house, beautifully located. It feels very precious to be able to spend some time here. Lots of space for (young) children to be outdoors. The cottage is close to a stunnig drive into the hills. Please be aware that access with a 'low' vehicle is difficult. Ordnance survey walks in the vicinity are overgrown.

Characterful, comfortable cottage with panoramic views. This is an isolated place where you can really get away from it all and enjoy the peace and quiet of the Welsh countryside. The long, unsurfaced, single track (with ford) leading up to the cottage requires careful driving to avoid the worst potholes, particularly in wet weather. We managed it Read moreok in our Corsa, but made sure we were back before it got dark, which was no problem in summer. We loved the place and highly recommend. Hide

Idyllic views from the house across to the Black Mountain. Air quality lovely and clean and fresh. Very quiet. A generous-sized house with large rooms and well equipped kitchen.

Lovely cottage and views. Tranquil and peaceful but it did not have the walks that we expected, straight from the front door. There was a great range of kitchen equipment and all of the rooms were of a good size but we did find the property quite cold at night and had to use the wood burner.

What a find! The house is totally idyllic with jaw dropping panoramic views across the hills. We had a fantastic week winding down and exploring the rural west end of the Brecon Beacons and this house was comfortable, spacious and well equipped to serve all our needs. We would definitely like to stay again.
