Escape to the Brecon Beacons in style with this charmingly rustic cottage in the popular village of Talybont-on-Usk, the perfect location for canal walks and plenty of peace and quiet.

The traditional Welsh cottage, in the pretty village of Talybont-on-Usk, makes an ideal romantic bolthole or base for a small family. Enjoy peaceful strolls along the canal, directly from the property, or pull on your hiking boots and head into the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park for a day of adventure; scale the heights of Pen-y-Fan (14 miles) or tramp around Talybont Reservoir (2.5 miles).

 

This rustic cottage has bags of character, carefully mixing traditional features with contemporary styles. A couple of steps lead to the open-plan ground floor, where you’ll discover a stylish galley kitchen and cosy lounge area, thanks to the warming wood burner. After a long walk, curl up with your favourite book in the window seat overlooking the garden. Cottage-style stairs (with no handrail) lead to the two charming bedrooms, one with views towards the mountains and the other looking out over the canal. Outside, there is a mature garden with outdoor seating and a BBQ to enjoy on balmy summer evenings. There’s also a lawn, which is great if you have a four-legged guest.

 

Talybont-on-Usk is a delightful village with a real community spirit. You’ll discover great eateries serving real ales and local produce, as well as cute arts and crafts shops. There’s a gorgeous 2-mile walk that follows the canal, walking in the footsteps of 17th-century poet Henry Vaughan. Information boards along the route display his poetry and you can bask in the tranquillity that inspired much of his work. If it’s wildlife you’re looking for, head to Talybont Reservoir. Marvel at the migratory birds as you follow the 6-mile loop around the water, passing through woodland and along a section of the Taff Cycle Trail.

Owners very welcoming. Very cosy comfortable cottage, spotlessly clean .Really comfortable bed and pillows. Had everything we needed in the kitchen. Great position for walking or cycling. The Star inn ,opposite the cottage is very welcoming after a busy day for drinks and meals. As it is an old cottage be aware the stairs are a small challenge if yRead moreou have any mobility issues. Eg dodgy knees! Hide

A lovely quaint cottage in a beautiful village. We had a great time there with our dog and were very sad to leave. I recommend the cottage and its location.

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful cottage! Everything about the cottage was perfect, it was so comfy and cosy! Helen was the perfect host and we would definitely revisit. The cottage is in a fantastic location with lots of amazing walks straight from the front door.

Very pretty peaceful cosy cottage. Just step outside onto some beautiful walks. Sit by the canal and watch the world go by. What more could you want! Oh yes two pubs and a shop perfect.

The cottage is as described on the website, the stairs are quite steep so may not be suitable for someone with mobility issues but are what you would expect from this style of cottage of this age. We loved it, it was warm and welcoming after a hard days walking. The pubs looked good, COVID-19 restrictions kind of ruined our ability to enjoy them (iRead moret rained all week) Hide
