Property code: 75206

A delightful and thoughtfully laid out lodge set in tree-lined grounds looking out to magnificent mountains. Ideal for couples, with lots to see and do if you can tear yourself away from the property.

A beautiful, detached lodge set on the edge of Gilwern, a sweet village, with pubs, shops and a picturesque canal all within walking distance, great for cyclists and walkers alike. An abundance of other activities to try, include fishing on Monmouthshire and Brecon canal or at Llandegfedd or Talybont reservoirs, canoeing and kayaking on the Usk and Wye rivers. Other attractions in the area include Blaenavon Iron Works, The Big Pit or stargazing at the Brecon Beacons Visitor Centre or perhaps try horse riding or golf. Visit the historic towns of Crickhowell and Abergavenny which are full of shops, pubs and eateries, with galleries, museums, castles and vineyard nearby too.

Enter this fabulous lodge, through bi-folding doors into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. This inviting space has a comfortable sofa which also doubles as a sofa bed, with a rather ingenious table for eating or working on with your laptop, a super wood burner with a basket of logs and Smart TV/DVD, and is all laid-out to take in the magnificent mountain views. The kitchen area has everything that you’ll need for a wonderful couple’s break, including an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment and a dishwasher. There is a table and two chairs that can be used inside or out, if you fancy some al fresco dining. There is also a contemporary bathroom which has a bath with overhead shower and WC. Along the internal hallway you will find the bedroom, which has a super-king-size zip-and-link bed (which can be made up as a twin on request). Underfloor heating throughout and with lots of thought and attention to detail throughout, making this the perfect romantic retreat any time of the year.

Outside there is an enclosed balcony, where you can fully open the bi-folding doors, bringing the outside in. What could be nicer than taking in the views and enjoying dinner as you plan the next day of activities, with BBQ available for al fresco dining. There is a further lawn below, with table and chairs, all set beneath the beautiful trees lining the garden. Adjoining the lodge is a secure utility and storage room with a washing/dryer, airer and radiator for drying out muddy clothes and boots, there are also bike racks in here. There is off-road parking for one car.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A lovely, cosy getaway for two. Good location to reach local places like Abergavenny and plenty to do e.g. climb the Sugarloaf, walk along the canal, find a waterfall. Great to come back at the end of each day and have a nice soak in the hot tub.

Honestly one of the nicest properties we have ever stayed at. The cottage is located in the back garden but youd never know, it's secluded and private. It's really nice and quiet and so chilled. The cottage itself was homely and spotless, really couldn't fault it. Anything you'd need is there. The hot tub is an excellent addition and so nice after Read morea day of walking or just to chill out. 10/10 will definitely be back. Amazing for our little dog too, she loved it. Hide

Perfect romantic retreat! Just perfect sized lodge for 2 and a small pet. Fantastic views, instantly homely, plenty of light, underfloor heating is what makes this place so cozy and with the log burner you would be cozy even through the bleakest of winters. Comfy bed, snugly couch, good hot shower, secret laptop table, brilliant good quality radio.Read more Absolutely spotless! All ticked on my list! Didn't use tv - why would you in a place like that!

Location

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.
