  • Original country cottage with warm and welcoming open fire
  • Two beautiful outdoor spaces with lawn, stream and rocky gorge
  • Far-reaching views across the Black Mountains from three first-floor bedrooms
Property code: BN305

Traditional cottage set in a beautiful village location , with open fire for cold winter’s evenings in and a beautiful garden set to lawn for enjoying brighter weather outside.

Treat your loved ones to a relaxing staycation in a cottage that’s straight out of a fairy tale, swapping the stresses of modern life for roaring fires, hearty pub lunches and walks in the countryside. Based in the chocolate-box village of Llangynidr, your holiday accommodation sleeps six guests across four bedrooms, placing you close to the village’s popular pubs and a plethora of footpaths.

 

This attractive cottage has beamed ceilings, glorious outside spaces and an open fire set in an original stone fireplace. Escape blustery cold days by hunkering down by the crackling embers with hot chocolate, and wake up to delicious breakfasts in the cheerful galley-style kitchen/diner. Stairs lead from the lounge to the first floor where you’ll find two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a bathroom with a shower-over-the-bath. Due to the age of the property, the bedrooms are at various levels, and some have stepped access. The remaining downstairs bedroom has a low door, a single bed and an en-suite shower room. Sip your first coffee of the day in the front garden, and of an afternoon, the rear garden has a terrace with garden furniture and a BBQ so you can sit back and listen to the stream that runs alongside the property. Stone steps lead to a stunning rocky gorge and pool, which is an enchanting place to sit and reflect.

 

Stroll along the towpath of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, spot kingfishers on the ethereally pretty River Usk, or bring your bikes and set off on an adventure. Keen fishermen can catch salmon and brown trout in the meandering river, or perhaps you could venture to Llangorse Lake 7 miles away to catch pike, perch and eels. The lake is a popular location for water sports, offering kayaking, paddleboarding and sailing.

The kitchen in Rock Cottage is well equipped and there is a huge number of books to choose from plus games and puzzles for all ages. Being next to the stream is wonderful and we enjoyed the 'thrill' of driving through the narrow parts of the lane to the cottage.

A lovely cosy cottage, very well equipped with a garden back and front and the bonus of the soothing sound of a stream rushing by the side of the house. The area is stunning with interesting walks very close by, there is a stile just the other side of the lane. I would recommend the friendly local Red Lion pub.

Cosy cottage with great walks straight out of the door. The location of Rock Corttage is ideal. You have great walks on Llangynidr Mountain, Tor Y Foel, the canal and the Usk. You can just leave your car in the parking space all week and just walk from your door. If you do want to travel then Talybont Waterfalls are brilliant, as are Ystradfelte. IRead moret's only a short driver to the Sugar Loaf or Pen y Fan. The cottage itself is cozy and the owners are very helpful if there are any issues. Hide

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. Owner was very helpful. Very narrow lane to the property to be aware of. Only downside was heating was not the best and we had to keep the open fire going as well to stay warm enough. Due to location the water pressure isnt great so dont expect a power shower.

Lovely old cottage with really nice front and back gardens. Fully equipped, great location for our walking holiday. The nearby Red Lion pub is great for decent evening meals and a few drinks. Enough facilities in the village to get you through the week. friendly owners. Some minor issues with the hot water/shower but we coped.

Absolutely loved our stay at Rock Cottage, beautiful scenery, walks and garden. Owners made us feel welcome and were accommodating. Great for our two dogs but need to keep an eye on them because of the garden wall. Lots of local information provided, has a friendly local pub, amazing canal walks.
