Property code: 91150

A picturesque cottage with a secluded grassy garden, set along a row of terraced houses in the lively market town of Brecon. This chic escape is ideal for couples or solo travellers holidaying with their four-pawed pal. Embark on an unforgettable sunset hike to the summit of Pen y Fan (6 miles), then sip a sparkling nightcap in the ambient glow of the wood burner.

This sophisticated hideaway features a clean country interior with chalk white and French grey tones, rustic exposed beams, and print artwork. Slip off shoes at the door then pad into the lounge. Tend to the fire with the help of your furry assistant then curl up amongst the plump throw pillows and graze through a snack board. On rainy days, peruse the selection of books or settle in with a film on the Smart TV. Cook up a simple spread in the creamy shaker kitchen then dine at the intimate breakfast table. As the night draws in, ascend the staircase, and slip into the soft sheets of a tranquil double bedroom with an airy en-suite. Outside, enjoy an al fresco breakfast in the enclosed garden or fire up the BBQ for a post-adventure feast.

Marvel at the intricate Celtic architecture and stained-glass windows of Brecon Cathedral (500 metres) then stroll through the heritage centre. Follow the wooded path following the rippling banks of the River Honddu (within 500 metres) or venture to the charming town of Crickhowell (15 miles) to sip fine wines and sample seasonal food.

I cannot recommend this property more! This was THE sweetest little cottage in a perfect central location and fully equipped with everything you could need. The log burner was a favourite feature and we particularly loved the attention to detail by the owner, with books/ maps for local walks and recommendations to visit nearby businesses. The kitchRead moreen was well equipped and rear garden for dog was fab! A lovely find and support for a small town and local businesses. We would 100% stay here again! Hide

Such a gem of a place, location is 5 mins from town in one direction and the canal in the other, plenty of places nearby to eat and drink. 2 supermarkets in easy distance. The cottage itself was peaceful and cosy, very clean and comfortable and well stocked and laid out kitchen. The host had thought of everything, cant wait to come back!
