Quaint yet spacious period cottage in the centre of the pretty village of Talybont-on-Usk, near reservoirs and waterfalls for picturesque walks and exploring the mountains of South Wales.

Located in the centre of the pretty village of Talybont-on-Usk, this canalside 19th-century cottage is an ideal base for family holidays in the Brecon Beacons. Quaint yet spacious, this stone cottage exudes character with its oak beams and stone fireplace yet offers plenty of modern comforts from its wood burner to its modern kitchen. Spend your days exploring this national park with its rivers, canals, mountains and waterfalls before returning for an al fresco meal in the enclosed garden.

 

Named after the kiwi fruit crawling up the wall of the building, this period cottage provides a tasteful blend of old and new. Rustle up delicious family meals in the modern kitchen, which offers plenty of surface and storage space for keen cooks. Dine at the table beside a charming, exposed stone wall before retreating to the cosy lounge for a relaxing evening spent in front of the TV while your four-legged friend dozes happily beside the roaring wood burner. Outside, the enclosed garden provides a peaceful spot for sipping a glass of wine while children and pets play safely nearby.

 

Set alongside the tranquil Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, this charming cottage is just steps from the pubs and village stores of Talybont-on-Usk. Follow the river south to reach Talybont Reservoir (3 miles), a peaceful spot for birdwatching, trout fishing and picnicking alike. Or head north to spend a day on the water at Llangorse Lake (7 miles), where canoeing, windsurfing and waterskiing can all be enjoyed. Keen hikers should not miss a trip to Pen y Fan (13.5 miles), the highest peak in southern Britain, while those in search of a spot of retail therapy should head for bustling Brecon (7 miles).

This cottage is a perfect place to stay with lovely views of the boats going by on the canal to the front and farm & further rural views at the back. Its perfectly located in the village & has everything you could possibly need during your stay. The owners are lovely. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone.

In a lovely central position, all the equipment we needed, bed very. comfortable for 1 person (would be a bit small for two) . L,ovely sitting in the garden. Would have been nice to have had some literature about the walks round and about. Lucky we hd our own OS map, The village shop had everything we needed but a bit short of fresh veg. Everyone vRead moreery friendly, beautiful places to visit. Would recommend the Bear Hotel for food in Crickhowel. Really interesting churches in villages nearby. Hide

Very nice cottage in a great location. More spacious than it looks in the photos too. Decent outdoor space as well with a picnic bench. Kitchen could be slightly better equipped but does have most of the essentials. The cottage is 15 mins drive from Brecon, and in a great location for walks from the front door as well as short drives away like Pen Read morey Fan and Blaen y Glyn. Great place to stay for a long weekend away in the Brecons! Hide

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The Brecon Beacons is a vast, mountainous and rural region of Wales. Stretching 42 miles from east to west and covering an area of 520 square miles, the Brecon Beacons is dominated by the National Park of the same name. Split into three main areas, the Black Mountain in the west, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Fforest Fawr in the middle, and the Black Mountains in the east; each is a wild, bold and inspiring place to visit on holiday. With 1232 miles of public trails which includes the 95-mile-long Beacons Way, it’s a wayfarer’s delight. One of four Dark Skies Reserves in the UK (and one of 11 in the world), stargazers can delight in the open night sky, to enjoy the darkness in full splendour. The Fforest Fawr is a UNESCO Global Geopark because of its important geology and a need to conserve and protect the area from negative over development.

Stay at a self-catering cottage in the mountains and cascading woodlands or out on the moors; you can also stay in one of the Brecon Beacon’s lovely towns like Hay-on-Wye, Crickhowell, Llangorse or Brecon. Outdoor lovers will enjoy a choice of easy to challenging treks up and around Sugar Loaf Mountain, Carn Pica, Craig Cerrig-Gleisiad, Pen y Fan, or Hatterall Ridge (and many more besides). Take in uniquely Welsh attractions like Dan-yr-Ogof (the National Showcaves Centre for Wales), The Big Pit Mining Museum, Llanthony Priory, Carreg Cennen Castle, Fourteen Locks, and the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway. Wildlife abounds in the Brecon Beacons, and it’s a great place to spot red kites and discover the successful story of their reintroduction to the UK’s skies at the Red Kite Centre. There’s so much to do for outdoor lovers and extreme sports fans here, so why not book your self-catering holiday in the Brecon Beacons today?

Our holiday cottages across the Brecon Beacons have been carefully selected. From dog-friendly cottages in the countryside to large farmhouses on the mountainsides and everything in between, we have a holiday in the Brecon Beacons to suit you.
