    A quiet retreat

    Many of us can only truly relax when the usual pressures of our day-to-day lives are lifted. With no television, Cae'r Hendre provides the perfect place to unwind. On a wet day curl up and read a book in front of the woodburning stove or gather round and play a board game or do a jigsaw. If the weather is fine soak up the sun and the views from the pretty patio area. This quiet, mountain-side location is shared with the owner's across the courtyard so you can enjoy peace without being completely isolated. Walk into the nearby village of Llangynidr for lunch at the The Coach and Horses Inn on the canal and then home for a game of scrabble and a glass of wine.

  • Fantastic walks and cycle routes from your door

    Cae'r Hendre is a perfect location for a break. Set within a quiet courtyard in a stunning valley, it's ideal for visitors bringing a dog with easy access onto the Brecon Beacons. The Blaen-y-Glyn waterfalls are 20-30 minutes drive from Cae'r Hendre and are well worth a visit. 

    Llangynidr, known for its 5 canal locks

    Cae'r Hendre sits about 2 miles up the lane from the small village of Llangynidr. This thriving little community has two good pubs, both within a pleasant hour's walk. The Monmouthshire and Brecon canal passes through five locks as it travels through this little village and is a wonderful setting from which to feed the ducks and swans or enjoy a quiet walk. Make sure that you take a boat ride to see the canal from a completely different perspective - the tow-paths provide miles of easy cycling too. The fairy glen walk along the river is truly magical.

    Crickhowell 7 miles, Brecon 12 miles, Abergavenny 13 miles.

    Customer Comments

    • First time I passed this place by accident - my daughter and I walked by when trying Brecon Beacons track. I loved it here, so I decided to bring my wife and show her this lovely area. And we possibly could not find a better base for our walks and trips. We were looking for a peaceful place, pet friendly, at a place that would allow us trips and walks around. We got all of this plus excellent atmosphere of the house that is spacious enough for us two plus our dog, yet cosy, equipped with everything - including a real fire place - for someone like my wife, this is very important even in summer. The owners were friendly and extremely helpful.

      Service rating : Very helpful
      Product : Absolutely delightful cottage, a barn conversion designed by the architect owner. Ideal for a couple. Surrounded by beautiful views and countryside. Walks close by including lovely, level walks along the nearby Monmouthshire and Brecon canal. Coach and Horses pub in the village highly recommended for food and friendly service. So good we hope to go again next year.

      Thank you for your great feedback following your recent stay at Cae'r Hendre - we look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Regards Edwina

      Service rating : Provided an excellent, prompt, service and a good selection of cottages to pick from. Very polite and friendly.
      Product : We really enjoyed the cottage, a modernly appointed, renovated farm building, isolated and in very pretty surroundings on the side of a valley. The main floor had a large living room/dining room area with a simple kitchen (with a somewhat difficult stove) and a very efficient wood stove (with wood supplied by the owners and extra available in a shed). The large bedroom with a single and a queen sized bed was up a narrow set of stairs in the loft with lovely exposed beams. Very clean and very nice throughout.

      Despite the owners only being across the courtyard we were given our privacy though we were very nicely offered produce from their gardens.

      Than k you for your great feedback and photos following your recent stay at Cae'r Hendre. Hopefully we will be able to welcome you back to the area again soon. Regards Ed

      Service rating : Very happy with the service from Brecon Beacons Holiday Cottages. All the arrangements and information were faultless.
      Product : Caer Hendre is set in a beautiful location with stunning views. We were lucky to be there when all the hedgerows were full of spring flowers and lambs in the fields. Our charming hosts have thoughtfully equipped the cosy cottage with plenty of wood for the woodburner, blankets and extra pillows, games, books and DVDs to cater for your every need. We didn't even notice the lack of TV, but did wonder as there is good broadband why they couldn't provide Internet tv - possibly an upgrade worth considering?

      There are a few little quirks that could do with a bit of attention - the hot water is extremely hot I would worry about it scalding a young child, whilst the cold water runs very slowly due to low pressure from the spring supply. This makes it difficult to use the shower safely. Also the small cooker only had one of its two rings working.

      Service rating : Great website, great cottage, lovely hosts!
      Product : Wonderful cottage in a fantastic location. Great hosts and lovely place to play and go for big walks. Big log burner to warm your toes with a DVD. Excellent walking access to the hills too! We didn't use the electric car unfortunately but a great extra!

      Pity you didn't get to use the car. A toastie log burner always hits the spot, especially after a good walk.

      Look forward to welcoming you again soon

      Service rating : Straightforward and efficient
      Product : Isolated and basic but toasty warm. An ideal place to escape to and unwind. Excellent walking within easy reach. A pleasure to have permission to have my working/well trained Springers present.
