Quaint and charming, this 18th-century toll house is built into the side of a hill on the banks of a picturesque canal, set just 0.5 miles from Talybont-on-Usk.
Enjoy a romantic getaway to Mid Wales in this beautifully modernised 18th-century toll house. Built into the side of a hill on the banks of a picturesque canal, an array of exciting trails lie on the doorstep while the pretty village of Talybont-on-Usk is just 0.5 miles away. Carefully finished, the reverse-level accommodation boasts many rustic details, while outside two terraces offer breathtaking views and lead down to a private stretch of canal bank.
Inside, this Grade II-listed cottage has been tastefully refurbished to offer elegantly modern decor while retaining original oak beams, arched windows and stone walls. Upstairs, the stylish shaker-style kitchen provides plenty of space for rustling up delicious meals, while the open-plan lounge/diner boasts spectacular elevated views and a cosy wood burner. Steep cottage-style stairs lead down to the bedrooms, one of which opens directly onto the patio – perfect for al fresco breakfasts. Choose between the two terraces or step down to the private stretch of sloping canal bank for a waterside picnic.
Once the toll point for limestone and slate as it was transported down the mountains, this charming cottage is now a perfectly-placed holiday home. Follow the towpath of the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal towards the village to enjoy a bite to eat at one of the local pubs, or set out along one of the many trails that cross the surrounding landscape. Talybont Reservoir (3 miles) is a lovely location for a walk, cycle ride or picnic, while Llangorse Lake (7.5 miles) is a must for water sports. Meanwhile, the popular town of Brecon (7.5 miles) is home to a good selection of independent shops, restaurants, cafes, and pubs.
