  • Stunning cottage with beautiful stone feature fireplace with wood burner
  • Superb panoramic views of the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • Just 4 miles from historic market town Brecon
Property code: BN276

This exceptional property (originally an 18th Century farmhouse now modernised for 21st Century living), combines the traditional and the contemporary, and is perfectly situated for exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Ideal for families with children and friends, walking groups, cyclists, artists’ groups, or for those just chilling out at home in some of Britain’s most beautiful countryside. All the high ground of the National Park is within easy reach, Drostre Wood nearby (2 miles) is a great place to explore, and there is a bedroom with three single beds, great for sleepovers.

This house has style and country charm; relax in the comfortable sitting room with its oak parquet floor, original fireplace and new wood burner, comfortable sofas and chairs, and 43” Sony TV. Eat in the spacious, bright, and well-equipped kitchen/dining room, or barbecue and dine alfresco on the sheltered terrace on warm sunny evenings. Admire the views along the length of the Usk Valley, from Carmarthen Fan in the west to the Black Mountains in the east (one of the longest ridge views in Great Britain). Enjoy the quiet, and the night skies (the area has night sky status). And if it does rain, your muddy walking boots and wet clothes can dry in the adjoining boiler room.

With 4 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a separate shower room, this much- admired house can accommodate 8 adults or 6 adults and 3 children.

So, summit the peaks (try the highest mountain in southern Britain, Pen-y-Fan, for breath-taking panoramic views), take canal walks, visit Llangors, the largest natural lake in South Wales, with many activities for a family day out, or drive to the bustling market town of Brecon (3 miles), to visit the new cultural centre (Ÿ Gaer), the Cathedral Church, and the Brecon and Monmouth Canal Basin. And, for serious artists’ groups, an adjoining fully equipped studio with dark room and third bathroom, is available on request to the owner (supplementary charge).

  • 4 bedrooms – 1 double (accessed through triple bedroom), 1 triple – triple bedroom (easily converted to 1 x super-king (zip and link)  2 king-size and 1 x single)

We had a wonderful stay at the farmhouse. Our group was a baby with her parents and grandparents. It was nice to have somewhere with parking and the baby absolutely loved the cows and sheep in the fields just outside. It was lovely spacious accommodation with a well equipped kitchen (we cooked a few times) and comfortable beds. The baby equipment wRead moreas clean and in good condition. We enjoyed reading the booklet giving the history of the house. Very good positive contact in advance of our stay. Hide

Penrheol is a very comfortable home from home in a beautiful, peaceful location with easy access to Brecon and the National Park. We chose Penrheol because of the unusual opportunity to rent the adjoining artists studio which was perfect for our painting holiday. We enjoyed it hugely.
