A chocolate box, grotto-style cottage situated on a serene private country estate in the Brecon Beacons National Park, this romantic bolthole is the perfect rural escape for a nature-loving couple and their furry companion. Dive in for a brisk wild water dip with exclusive access to a leafy stretch of the Usk River, then snuggle up in the ambient glow of the wood burner with a warm drink and nibbles.
This bright and stylish property boasts a crisp country interior with clean lines, calming neutral tones, and light-dappled rooms. Perch on the traditional storm porch as you unlace muddy hiking boots then pad into the welcoming lounge area. Flop down onto the padded sofa to rest weary feet or curl up on the elegant occasional chair by the window and tuck into some well-earned refreshments. Step into the bespoke shaker kitchen and whip up some fresh farm goodies or lounge at the breakfast table with your morning coffee and flaky pastries to start the day. Sink into the deep bathtub to unwind after a day of exploring then retreat to the tranquil king/twin bedroom. Embrace easy mornings foraging for fresh herbs in the herb garden, strolling through the meadows, or scoping out the tennis courts on the estate.
