About Cae'r Hendre
Situated on the sunny side of Tor-y-Foel Mountain, Cae'r Hendre is a charming and comfortable little cottage surrounded by spectacular walks and stunning views. Located across the courtyard from the owner's home, visitors can take advantage of the homegrown organic fruit, herbs and vegetables when in season. Filled with character, this property sleeps up to 3 people and a cot in the double bedroom and is in a great location for those who wish to walk or cycle round the area. With a bird-watcher's paradise just minutes up the road and some beautiful waterfalls a short drive away, there is plenty to keep you occupied without leaving the area. Add to this easy access to Brecon and Cardiff and visitors will be spoilt for choice.
The entrance hall at Cae'r Hendre provides useful storage for boots, coats and bikes and a step down gives access to the open plan living area. The kitchen area with electric cooker, microwave and fridge adjoins the sitting/dining room with its attractive stone fireplace and woodburning stove, easy chairs and dining table and chairs. TV with Freesat and a DVD is provided.
The downstairs bathroom has a bath with a shower over, toilet and handbasin.
Bedroom 1: a good size double room with double bed. A further single bed and cot can be provided if required.
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.

Service rating : I would recommend Brecon Beacons Holiday Cottages to anyone wanting to holiday in the Brecon Beacons
Product : beautifully peaceful cottage. Cooking facilities rather basic
Thank you for your positive feedback following your stay at Cae'r Hendre. I do hope we will have the opportunity of welcoming you back to the Brecon Beacons.
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.
Service rating : Professional and friendly service. One downside for overseas customers is that they don't accept payment via paypal, which means a hefty international transaction charge and thus a financial disadvantage. I would suggest more flexibility when it comes to payment options.
Product : A perfect cottage for a couple. Beautiful setting, very cozy, a great place to stay particularly for walkers. The hosts are lovely, very helpful, and very generous.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Cae'r Hendre which is located in such a fantastic spot for walking and enjoying the outdoors.
Hope we can welcome you back again in the future.
Kind Regards Ceri
