One of four beautiful lodges enjoying a great location within the heart of the Brecon Beacons, finished with a spacious and contemporary style and perfect for groups wishing to get together to celebrate.

An elegant lodge set on a traditional working farm in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, this beautifully presented property is perfect for celebratory gatherings with family and friends. Enjoy an early morning amble through the dense woodland forests and serene shoreline of the Talybont Reservoir, before indulging in a restorative soak in your private hot tub.

An outdoor enthusiast’s dream, this luxurious hideaway boasts a sleek interior with high-vaulted sloped ceilings, crisp minimalist styling, and a sophisticated neutral colour scheme. Kick off muddy boots at the door then step into the spacious open-plan living area. Whip up a snack board with locally sourced produce in the bespoke shaker kitchen overlooking the farm grounds. Wine, dine, and adventure plan gathered around the rustic wooden table. Retreat to the lounge area and unwind in front of the crackling wood burner with an evening drink and a family favourite on the TV. Rest up in the welcoming country-style sleeping areas consisting of an en-suite double, a cosy twin with valley views, and a light-dappled king-size mezzanine level bedroom. On balmy afternoons, throw open the patio doors and get lunch sizzling on the BBQ or lounge on the outdoor furniture and stargaze beneath the twinkling dark skies.

Step out and dive in for a brisk open water swim or saunter through the orchards on the farm grounds. Soak in breath-taking views as you peddle along the highest point of the ionic Taff Trail, accessible from your doorstep, then potter through the pretty village of Talybont-on-Usk, within 300 metres, and scope out the independent eateries serving up cosmopolitan cuisine and fine wine with views of the Usk Valley. Don’t miss a visit to the glistening shores of Llangorse Lake, 9 miles, and embark on a tranquil SUP or adrenaline-fuelled water ski session.

We had an amazing time at Grouse - thank you so much for facilitating that at such short notice. We loved Talybont, and did some amazing walks (including walking from the cottage up to Pen Y Fan!). The cottage was lovely and clean, and cosy. Thank you so much - we'd love to come again!
