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.
