  • Homely period cottage with views of the Black Mountains
  • Set in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • Within the village of Bwlch, overlooking the Usk Valley
Property code: BN138

A cosy retreat, dating back to the 17th century and situated in a village, with shops and a pub, yet also ideally positioned for walks and mountain hikes in the Brecon Beacons.

Sitting in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, escape to this traditional cottage for a romantic rural retreat or a getaway with family. Boasting views across the Usk Valley and Black Mountains, get a glimpse of the adventures which await. Fire up the wood burner-effect electric fire for chilly evenings snuggled up in the cosy lounge or get the BBQ sizzling and enjoy warm evenings dining alfresco on the patio.

 

Step up and into this cosy cottage where you can sink straight into comfortable sofas to relax and unwind. An exposed brick wall houses an ornamental fireplace where a warming wood burner-effect electric fire now sits, perfect for keeping you toasty after days exploring. The kitchen has everything you need to cook up delicious dinners and is a bright space in which to spend time. Plate up at the smart dining table which comfortably seats four guests so you can enjoy a sociable mealtime and raise a glass. Upstairs, the two bedrooms are treated to fantastic views of the Usk Valley, towards the Sugar Loaf Mountain. Wake up feeling refreshed and head downstairs to the contemporary family bathroom where you can freshen up with a quick shower or soak in the bath before getting ready for the day.

 

Welcoming your dogs too, you don’t need to travel far to find some of the best walking spots. Throw on a lead and head 5 miles to the largest natural lake in South Wales, Llangorse, or trek 6 miles to the bustling town of Crickhowell where you can refuel for the journey home in one of the dog-friendly pubs. Further afield, make the 16-mile trip to Pen y Fan and summit the highest peak in South Wales for breathtaking panoramic views.

Cottage is in a good location for exploring the surrounding areas. Pen y fan was lovely, as was Llangorse lake and we also enjoyed the 4 Waterfalls walk and a pleasant walk from Talybont along the canal path. Pub at the top of the road was a bonus!

Stayed here for three nights; my son, the dogs and I all loved the place. Great character to it. It was all clean and ready, with very comfortable beds! The view is beautiful and it's one of my favourite parts of the world. Would definitely stay here again.

The cottage was old and full of character. The kitchen and bathroom where good and easy to use. The central heating quickly warmed up the cottage. Good Location for walking or sightseeing and near Brecon for shopping. Handy shop and pub nearby.

Fantastic little cottage full of character. Locals all friendly and pub literally round the corner. Good location to explore the Brecon Beacons and south Wales. We took 2 dogs with us and found the layout of the cottage and garden ideal for them. Would definitely recommend this cottage, and look out for the secret stair case!
