Property code: BN291

A charming chocolate-box cottage at the heart of a pretty village, surrounded by the stunning landscape of the Brecon Beacons National Park and within easy reach of a picturesque river and a canal for scenic walks.

Located at the centre of Llangynidr, this property is within easy reach of two welcoming pubs and a selection of scenic trails. The Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal winds through the pretty village, so pack up a picnic and marvel at the scenery of the Usk Valley as you walk or cycle along the towpath. Keen fisherman will relish the wealth of angling opportunities available on the River Usk, choosing the best location to catch trout or salmon. Treat the family to a fun day out at the Llangorse Multi Activity Centre, 5 miles away, trying your hand at anything from indoor climbing to pony trekking across the parkland.

 

Inside, the cottage is cheerful and homely with comfortable furniture, bright walls and lots of additional details such as pretty artwork and thoughtful accessories. Enter via the porch, which also doubles as a handy utility space complete with a washer/dryer and storage for coats and shoes. From here, step into the cosy lounge and find the crackling wood burner, which acts as the focal point of this delightful room. It is the perfect place to curl up in front of the TV or work up an appetite before dinner with a few family board games. A country-cottage-style kitchen is next, equipped with an electric oven, induction hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. Gather the family for leisurely breakfasts and simple suppers around the table, settling down to enjoy homemade cake and fresh coffee. Adjacent to the lounge is a quirky snug room, which would have once been used as a prison cell to detain wrongdoers overnight before they were transported to Crickhowell police station. Today it is comfy and welcoming, housing a TV, games console (Wii), and a useful futon that can be used to sleep two extra guests if needed. Cottage-style stairs lead upstairs to the elegant bedrooms: one king-size and one small double with a 4’ bed. Completing this floor is a fantastic bathroom, which boasts a free-standing bath, a WC, and a shower. The spacious landing has an additional 2’6” daybed for an additional person.

 

Sunny afternoons and balmy evenings are made for relaxing in the garden, which is safely enclosed to allow children and pets to play freely. Sizzle up something special on the BBQ whilst younger visitors explore the summerhouse and pretend to drive the old tractor that enjoys a quiet retirement in a peaceful corner of the lawn. A rear porch leads outside to a productive vegetable garden, which you are welcome to help yourself to. Finally, there is a tranquil courtyard hidden away at the back of the house with additional seating.

 

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

The welcome pack and fresh milk were a lovely touch especially after a long journey. Lovely comfy lounge with a fantastic log burner. Personal touches everywhere. Its an old cottage so lots of creaking floorboards but wonderful thick walls. We loved the garden, very safe for our 11 month pup - I picked apples and raspberries and made pie fillinRead moregs!! The tables and chairs behind the house seemed an odd place to put them until we realised they got all the afternoon sun and it was a warm sun trap where we sat out eating and drinking. We wanted a takeaway the first night and struggled finding somewhere local (no menus in cottage) obviously with current conditions no deliveries but we eventually went over the hill to Massalla in Brynmawr - pretty good curry. If you want to travel further a field to eat or drink and want to get a taxi - there are none, we tried and no one was doing local trips ( only airport!). This isnt really an issue when you have 2 local pubs ( Red Lion 2 mins walk - very friendly although didnt eat here) and Coach and Horses 15 min walk along the back lane ( dont go main road as no footpath and its busy) where we did eat here and the food and service and friendly staff were great ( difficult times for everyone but they were doing a great job). The Walnut in village is lovely for coffee and Peter is so nice - we booked a gazebo and had pizza and fried chicken one sunny evening and it was such a nice relaxed evening. I am going to book for next year so I think that says it all. Hide

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.
