  • A charming half timbered Grade II listed 16C cottage with stunning views across the countryside
  • Within walking distance of the River Wye and market town of Hay on Wye
  • Enjoying a private location with immediate access onto the Offa’s Dyke footpath
Property code: 78078

Simply charming and full of character, this Grade II listed cottage sits peacefully below a small hamlet on a private lane off  the Offa’s Dyke footpath offering stunning views across the countryside, perfect for small families and couples whatever the time of year.

Overflowing with charm, this half-timbered Grade II listed 16th-century cottage is located in the peaceful hamlet of Bronydd. Sleeping four people over two bedrooms and welcoming two four-legged friends, it’s the perfect accommodation option for small families or groups of friends who really want to immerse themselves in stylish country living. Step inside and you’ll find a boot room, where you can remove your boots and towel-down any muddy pups. Wander along the hallway and you’ll discover a farm-style kitchen with everything you need for an evening’s cooking. Gather your loved ones around the table in the dining room, or, if it’s a nice evening, head out to the front of the cottage where you’ll find a raised terrace. Strike up the BBQ and soak up views across the Wye Valley as you eat. After dinner, pour a glass of wine and make your way to the living room to curl up in front of the wood burner. When the day is done climb the wooden stairs and you’ll find four lovely bedrooms, including one that boasts fabulous dual aspect country views. This property offers some wonderful walking routes right from its doorstep. It enjoys direct access to Offa’s Dyke Path, is a 177-mile-long walking trail that follows the dyke King Offa ordered to be constructed in the 8th century. Alternatively, spend a day wandering around the bookstores in Hay-on-Wye (2.5 miles). Make sure you treat yourself to tea and cake in one of the town’s gorgeous tearooms. Or, if you’re looking for something a little stronger, head to Black Mountains Botanicals (12 miles) for a ‘Gin-Making Experience’. The master distiller will teach you how to distil your very own personal bottle of gin.

Lovely place, great base to explore the area and always lovely to return to. Aga a pleasure to cook on (first time for me) and also heated the whole house. The walks from the cottage are as good as any in the area, the longer ones further afield are also great fun. I do also recommend the Felinfacj Griffin as somewhere to eat fairly locally

A lovely, well-appointed cottage in a great location, rural and quiet but only five minutes drive from Hay. We very much enjoyed just being in the accommodation itself, perfect for both sunny days in the garden and Cody if it rains too. Little lending/sharing library was a bonus.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The Brecon Beacons is a vast, mountainous and rural region of Wales. Stretching 42 miles from east to west and covering an area of 520 square miles, the Brecon Beacons is dominated by the National Park of the same name. Split into three main areas, the Black Mountain in the west, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Fforest Fawr in the middle, and the Black Mountains in the east; each is a wild, bold and inspiring place to visit on holiday. With 1232 miles of public trails which includes the 95-mile-long Beacons Way, it’s a wayfarer’s delight. One of four Dark Skies Reserves in the UK (and one of 11 in the world), stargazers can delight in the open night sky, to enjoy the darkness in full splendour. The Fforest Fawr is a UNESCO Global Geopark because of its important geology and a need to conserve and protect the area from negative over development.

Stay at a self-catering cottage in the mountains and cascading woodlands or out on the moors; you can also stay in one of the Brecon Beacon’s lovely towns like Hay-on-Wye, Crickhowell, Llangorse or Brecon. Outdoor lovers will enjoy a choice of easy to challenging treks up and around Sugar Loaf Mountain, Carn Pica, Craig Cerrig-Gleisiad, Pen y Fan, or Hatterall Ridge (and many more besides). Take in uniquely Welsh attractions like Dan-yr-Ogof (the National Showcaves Centre for Wales), The Big Pit Mining Museum, Llanthony Priory, Carreg Cennen Castle, Fourteen Locks, and the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway. Wildlife abounds in the Brecon Beacons, and it’s a great place to spot red kites and discover the successful story of their reintroduction to the UK’s skies at the Red Kite Centre. There’s so much to do for outdoor lovers and extreme sports fans here, so why not book your self-catering holiday in the Brecon Beacons today?

Our holiday cottages across the Brecon Beacons have been carefully selected. From dog-friendly cottages in the countryside to large farmhouses on the mountainsides and everything in between, we have a holiday in the Brecon Beacons to suit you.
