    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.
