Property code: BN273

The perfect place to unwind after a day exploring the mountains, lakes and steeply wooded gorges of the southern Brecon Beacons, enjoy the sounds of the river at this charming stone cottage.

Beautifully set on the bank of the River Tawe, this spacious stone cottage is perfect for a relaxing family getaway in South Wales. Located near the pretty town of Ystradgynlais, this is the ideal base for those looking to explore the southern Brecon Beacons, with miles of stunning landscapes to traverse on foot or by bike. The vibrant city of Swansea is just 15 miles away for those who want to try out some great eateries and do a spot of shopping, and the coast is only slightly further away.

Enter into this delightful holiday cottage, which has been renovated with great attention to detail. Prepare delicious family meals in the spacious kitchen with lovely country-living accents such as a Belfast sink. Start the morning with a cup of coffee in the adjacent sunroom. A handy utility room provides additional space to take care of laundry and house muddy boots. Enjoy dining at the farmhouse table, before heading through to the living room where you can unwind after a day in the countryside with a film on the TV or a family board game as the wood burner keeps you cosy. Upstairs you’ll find four lovingly decorated bedrooms, some enjoying tranquil views of the river, with a family bathroom to complete the accommodation. Outside, admire the rushing unenclosed river from the garden bench on the lawn.

There are plenty of lovely walks from your doorstep, such as up the road to the Diamond Park, or to the Wen Plemys Nature Reserve. Travel into the Brecon Beacons for more challenging picturesque walks, such as in Waterfall Country, with waterfalls, gorges and caves dotted along the River Hepste. Take the day out to visit Swansea and relax on the golden sands along Swansea Bay.

A really lovely place to stay! Great our party of four adults and one dog (though note it doesn't have an enclosed garden) and very well equipped. Really beautiful to hear the sound of the river closeby too. Excellent amenities in the nearby town and great access to the southern parts of the Brecon Beacons. Would very happily stay here again.

A good week despite the weather, we managed to get out and about. Unfortunately, unable to spend much time outside but the house was comfortable. Gower, Botanic Gardens, Dinefwr Castle and Craig-y-Nos, all good in between the downpours

Very comfortable and well equipped cottage in a beautiful location. The new room is a lovely place to have breakfast, watching the river and local wildlife. Well located for reaching the rivers, mountains, castles and beaches in the surrounding area.

Just lovely. Clean, quiet & the room overlooking the river was well used. So many beautiful bird's & the local village, Chinese takeaway & a Tesco all in walking distance. So many places to go within driving distance. We will be back. Top tip: use the local butcher's, lovely people & fantastic choice at great prices.

Parc House was a perfect place to stay over Easter. So peaceful and beautiful views over the river. It is also close to shops and cafes which made our stay very easy. Walks, caves, waterfalls and the coast all within a 30 minute drive.
