Tucked away on the gently sloping foothills of the beautiful Black Mountains is this attractive farm cottage dating from the 1700's and retaining many of its original features. Berth Fedw sits alongside the farmhouse on this 25 acre smallholding where the owners keep sheep and horses and enjoys gloriously wild, open countryside surroundings. Remote, save for the owner's house next door, the setting offers wonderful wildlife, flora and fauna and there are miles of superb riding and walking straight from the door. The popular gliding club at Talgarth is just a mile up the road making this a wonderful base for enthusiasts.
Cottage accommodation dating from the 1700's

The bathroom is downstairs with shower cubicle, bath, toilet and handbasin.
Up a fairly steep flight of stairs are two bedrooms.
Bedroom 1: The first has wonderful oak beams and oak floors, this bedroom has a double bed.
Bedroom 2: The second bedroom also features a beamed, sloping ceiling and has twin beds.
There is an out building which functions as a laundry room with a washing machine and tumble drier available for visitors.
A character farm cottage
Berth Fedw farm cottage and farmhouse date back to the 1700's and the farm cottage retains the old oak beams, sloping floors and old stone stairs. Despite its age the property is light and bright and the owners have ensured that it provides a very comfortable base for visitors. Situated in a wonderfully remote location just off Rhos Fach Common below the Black Mountains, the farm feels very remote but is just 2 miles from the ancient town of Talgarth.
The small market town of Talgarth is situated just 2 miles away from Berth Fedw. The area is rich with history and there has been a settlement on this site for at least 5000 years - the 13th century Peel Tower and 14th century Parish church are well worth a visit. Take a stroll just outside of the town centre and you'll find ancient woodland along the banks of the River Ennig. There are a series of waterfalls within the wood, the largest being Pwll-y-wrach or 'Witches Pool'. Local legend suggests that witches were ducked in this pool in medieval times. The woodland has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to its special habitat values and the existence of some quite rare plants including the Lesser butterfly-orchid. The area is also home to a thriving colony of rare bats and dormice.
On a more practical note, Talgarth has a small supermarket, local chemist and an exceptionally good local butcher - many visitors order meat to take home at the end of their stay. There are also several good pubs and restaurants in the area.
Numerous outdoor activities and the perfect spot for gliders
Located just 8 miles from Brecon and 10 miles from Hay-on-Wye, Berth Fedw is excellently placed to offer a huge number of outdoor activities all based locally. Walk straight from the cottage onto the Black Mountains or over Rhos Fach Common. There is fantastic canoeing on the River Wye or Usk, pony trekking, clay pigeon shooting, fishing and more advanced riding can all be arranged locally.
The superb gliding centre at Talgarth is just 1 mile from Berth Fedw and with hand gliding also available off nearby Hay Bluff this is the perfect holiday cottage for gliding enthusiasts.
Horses are welcome too
Berth Fedw is attached to Berth Fedw Farmhouse where the owner's manage their 25 acre hill farm and keep sheep and horses. If you would like to bring your horse please discuss this with the owner and they will be happy to make the arrangements for you. The cottage is ideally situated on the Three Rivers Ride, a 38 mile route from Tidbach in Worcestershire to Hay Bluff and crossing the rivers Lugg, Wye and Usk en-route. A lovely way to see the area and keep livery costs down!
Talgarth 2 miles, Brecon 8 miles Hay-on-Wye 10 miles.
