Enjoying a quiet spot in the welcoming market town of Llandovery, this lovely townhouse makes a perfect retreat for families and couples looking for a relaxing base for a pleasant country break
A gateway to the Brecon Beacons National Park, Llandovery is a fantastic base to enjoy outdoor activities including hiking, mountain biking, pony trekking and fishing. The town itself is a joy to explore, with pubs, independent shops and the remains of a 13th-century castle, while a lane leads down from the cottage to the River Towy. This attractive two-bedroom townhouse with handy parking for two cars is ideal for couples or a small family and their canine chums.
Inside, the property is elegantly decorated in calming neutral colours, and you’ll soon feel at home here. The stylish kitchen has a breakfast bar where you can grab a slice of toast if you’re heading out early, while a stable door leads into the dining room, a lovely space to linger over a family meal. Afterwards, watch the Smart TV in the cosy lounge while keeping warm by the wood burner-effect gas fire. The bedrooms, both upstairs, are cutely named Cwtch and Cariad (Welsh words for cuddle and love). Exposed beams and sloped ceilings bring traditional cottage appeal, while an en-suite shower in each room adds the contemporary touch. The garden is surrounded by a wall with a high gate, making it safe for dogs to scamper around in.
The mystical village of Myddfai is 3 miles from the property. As well as being the location of Prince Charles’ Welsh residence, it’s also the setting for many myths and legends, including the mysterious Lady of the Lake. A little further afield is the Red Kite Feeding Station near Llanddeusant (8 miles). Experience the thrill of seeing these majestic birds of prey soaring overhead and diving for food. Elsewhere, explore the ruins of Dinefwr Castle (14 miles) and take the dogs for a walk around Usk Reservoir (13 miles).
