Sleeping six people across three bedrooms, this idyllic stone retreat sits on a working farm in the outskirts of the peaceful hamlet of Cwmdu. It’s the perfect accommodation option for families or groups of friends looking for a stylish open-plan abode with original features to use as a home from home while they’re exploring the beautiful Black Mountains. Spend wonderful days boating at Llangorse Lake or discovering lovely market towns like Hay-on-Wye, before relaxing in the evening by BBQ-ing in the property’s pretty garden, or stargazing from its wood-fired hot tub.
Step inside this beautiful cottage and you’ll find yourself in an impressive open-plan living space that’s perfect for get-togethers with your loved ones. Take a moment to slip onto the sofa and make yourself at home in the cosy lounge area. When it’s time to eat, make your way to the contemporary-style kitchen and rustle up some dinner. Get the whole gang together for a sociable meal at the large dining table. Alternatively, head out to the garden, fire up the BBQ on the patio and enjoy an al fresco dinner. After eating, take a well-deserved dip in the wood-fired hot tub, or chill out in front of the TV in the lounge area. When it’s time for bed, you’ll find one lovely bedroom on the ground floor and two more upstairs.
Pack up a picnic and head to Llangorse Lake (7 miles) – the largest natural lake in Wales – for the day. There you can hire a kayak, canoe or stand-up paddle-board. Keep your eyes peeled for otters, water voles and Canada geese. Alternatively, head into the lovely market town of Hay-on-Wye (16 miles) to check out its quirky bookstores, or to Brecon (13 miles) to hire a bike and explore the towpath of the beautiful Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal.
