Property code: BN305

Traditional cottage set in a beautiful village location , with open fire for cold winter’s evenings in and a beautiful garden set to lawn for enjoying brighter weather outside.

Situated in the picturesque village of Llangynidr, this delightful cottage is ideally suited for exploring the surrounding Brecon Beacons National Park. Wander into the centre of Llangynidr (500 metres) to soak up traditional village life, popping into the welcoming pub or enjoying walks along the River Usk. Fishing can be enjoyed on this bustling river (1 mile), with salmon and brown trout ready to be taken home as catch of the day. Set off from your doorstep to enjoy glorious hikes and mountain bike trails, exploring the Black Mountain range (9 miles) or the Brecon’s tallest mountain of Pen y Fan (14 miles). Music lovers will appreciate the annual Green Man Festival, well accessible at just 3 miles away.

This traditional cottage has retained a lot of its original charm, with exposed stone walls and sturdy oak beams complemented by a classic countryside decor. Step inside and make yourselves at home in the cosy lounge, where comfy sofas and armchairs sit before a welcoming open fire. Enjoy the SkyTV/DVD or pick one of the many games to enjoy together. Continue into the bright and cheery galley kitchen for meals and dining, making use of the electric oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher when it comes to mealtimes. Finally, the ground floor boasts a cosy single bedroom with a low door and en-suite shower room with WC. Head up the cottage-style stairs to find three further bedrooms and a family bathroom with electric shower over bath and WC. Two double bedrooms and one single ( which doubles as a study) can be found on various levels on the first floor, with the odd step up and down between them. One double has a TV for lazy mornings in bed, and all three rooms boast far-reaching countryside views.

This property boasts two beautiful outdoor areas to enjoy in the warmer weather. To the front, you’ll find an enclosed garden set to lawn, with flowerbeds and a spot to enjoy morning coffee. To the rear of the property, you’ll find a handy terrace with dining set and BBQ. A delightful stream flows adjacent to the cottage and stone steps at the rear lead to a rocky gorge and pool.

Well positioned, near but not too near main roads, plenty of walks of varying degrees of difficulty nearby, a cosy house with ample equipment in a long galley kitchen, including a supply of large teddy bears and toy cars, and a big library including John Le Carre. The welcome pack was much appreciated

A few things need attention. Upstairs bathroom has insect problem. The pit in the garden should be safely covered. There should be recycling containers and a wheelie bin.

Well equipped, great location, good outdoor furniture, plenty of guidebooks and maps etc. Recommended

Beautiful comfortable and well equipped cottage nestled right next to a river. We were fortunate to have sunshine all week and sitting in both the front and back garden was bliss. We would also like to note our thanks for the huge amount of extra cleaning, it was very much appreciated as we're the Welsh cakes and chocolate!

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.
