In an enviable spot right next to a canal and with wonderful views over the Usk Valley, this traditional cottage is the perfect base for walking holidays in Mid Wales. Inside, find a warming wood burner set into a stone fireplace, wooden floorboards, and beautiful cottage windows, while outside in the large lawned garden are fruit trees and a low stone wall bordering the canal. Just 1 mile away sits the charming village of Talybont-on-Usk, home to a friendly shop, choice of pubs, waterside strolls and plenty of wildlife.
Inside, this delightful period cottage has been tastefully modernised to provide light and airy accommodation with plenty of original features retained. Rustle up tasty meals in the modern, tiled kitchen, which is fitted with everything you could need, before dining with a picturesque view of rolling Welsh countryside. In the evenings, fire up the wood burner and settle in for a cosy night of films, TV or games, before retiring to one of the three elegantly presented bedrooms. When the sun is shining, there’s no better place to enjoy a homemade picnic than on the private lawn while watching the boats breeze by along the canal.
Sitting on the banks of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, this property enjoys an idyllic location in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Stroll along the towpath or enjoy further waterside walks along the river or around the nearby 318-acre Talybont Reservoir. For more challenging terrains, head deeper into the national park to take on one of its many peaks including the mighty Pen-y-Fan, just 9 miles away. No trip to this area is complete without a visit to Brecon (7.5 miles), a market town famous for its jazz festival, independent shops and cafes, and magnificent cathedral.
