Situated adjacent to the historic farmstead and the only surviving water-powered corn mill on the river, this charming former granary has been beautifully converted into an inviting hideaway fit for romantic escapes.
Find complete relaxation at this tranquil getaway for two next to the owner’s farmhouse and watermill. It’s set beside the River Honddu, regarded as one of Europe’s most important rivers for its rare wildlife including otters, salmon, British crayfish and kingfishers. You can walk along the riverbank to the historic Georgian town of Brecon, just half a mile away, which has vibrant galleries, boutique shops and a 1930s-style cinema.
You’ll enter the property up a flight of stone steps, and be welcomed by a cosy living space. This former granary has bags of character, with exposed beams, slanted ceilings, solid oak flooring, oriental rugs and a traditional Welsh dresser. Prepare romantic suppers in the bespoke oak kitchen, or dine alfresco in the garden, perhaps with your faithful canine companion by your side. On cosy nights in, pick a book from the collection provided, play music or curl up on the comfy sofa to watch TV. The king-size bedroom is a cosy place to drift off at the end of a busy day, or you can enjoy a long hot soak in the cast iron bath.
When you’re not strolling through ancient woodland surrounding the cottage, you can spread your wings further afield. The ancient hill fort of Pen y Crug (2 miles) has wonderful views from the top, while Pen y Fan (7 miles), the highest peak in South Wales, offers an even more challenging climb. Travel further into the Brecon Beacons to go underground and walk behind cascading waterfalls at the National Showcaves Centre for Wales (19.5 miles).
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
