Property code: 87949

A spacious single-storey apartment that is perfect for entertaining, set within the Monmouthshire countryside close to the banks of the River Usk and within easy reach of the Wye Valley and Brecon Beacons.

Make the most of a romantic retreat away for two to the north of the Brecon Beacons National Park where you can explore history at Brecon Castle or trek up to the summit of Pen-y-Fan to marvel at the views. This cottage is well-situated to offer peace and quiet on the River Hondu with adventure right on your doorstep.

This cottage opens up into a quaint entrance hall with space to put down your things before heading into the traditionally styled living room, down a small set of stairs. Here you’ll find a charming wood burner, cosy sofa and beamed ceilings creating a wonderful space to relax in the evening with a film on the TV. The kitchen is light and airy, with French doors leading out to the patio situated next to the breakfast bar offering the choice of indoor or outdoor seating to enjoy your morning coffee. Completing the ground floor is a modern shower room where you can refresh after a long day out exploring. Up a small set of stairs you’ll find the first of the bedrooms which is a double featuring a chest of drawers, wardrobe and chair by the window where you can soak in the views. The second bedroom is a single room with underbed storage and a chest of drawers, well suited to children. Outside in the pretty courtyard there is a bistro-style table and chairs on the lower level, whilst if you climb to the top of the garden you’ll find a marvellous elevated spot from which you can make the most of the far reaching views.

Just under a mile away is the town of Brecon where you’ll find an array of local eateries to indulge at, as well as fantastic Georgian architecture as you walk down the streets. Head to Brecon Castle (1 mile) for a spot of history, or travel to the National Showcaves Centre for an underground adventure through the fascinating passageways. If you’re looking to walk one of Wales’ mighty mountains, Pen-y-Fan is just 4 miles away and is the highest point in South Wales, towering to 886 metres in height and providing unforgettable panoramic views.
