With footpaths leading in all directions into the foothills of the Brecon Beacons from the doorstep, this welcoming cottage is an excellent base for keen walkers and wildlife enthusiasts
Slow down the pace a little (or a lot) with a stay at this tranquil rural retreat near Brecon, set within the grounds of the owner's farm. With three bedrooms and an outdoor play area, it’s ideal for families with young children. After a day of discovery in the Welsh countryside, the cottage is a welcome sight as you can throw off your muddy boots and look forward to some pampering. From the luxury of the private hot tub in the log cabin, sit and admire the stunning scenery whatever the weather.
Inside the bungalow, the bright white kitchen is equipped with everything you need to rustle up a special family meal, and everyone can gather around the large dining table to tuck in. The lounge has panoramic views across the patchwork fields and valley. On chilly evenings, warm your toes by the wood burner-effect electric fire as you settle back on the leather sofas. On days when you want to take it easy, get the kids to make you breakfast in bed while you watch TV in the king-size bedroom. At the back of the property is a lawn and patio area. While you relax with a fresh coffee, the youngsters can play safely in the children's play area.
The property is 3 miles from the Georgian town of Brecon. Take photos of the cathedral, have lunch in a cosy cafe and take to the water for a boat trip along the canal. Just a mile from the cottage is Cantref Adventure Farm, where the kids can learn to ride a pony and meet other animals. For epic walks and cycle rides, head deeper into the Brecon Beacons National Park, also the place to explore spectacular limestone caves and waterfalls.
