Property code: BN426

Enjoying a quiet spot in the welcoming market town of Llandovery, this lovely townhouse makes a perfect retreat for families and couples looking for a relaxing base for a pleasant country break

A gateway to the Brecon Beacons National Park, Llandovery is a fantastic base to enjoy outdoor activities including hiking, mountain biking, pony trekking and fishing. The town itself is a joy to explore, with pubs, independent shops and the remains of a 13th-century castle, while a lane leads down from the cottage to the River Towy. This attractive two-bedroom townhouse with handy parking for two cars is ideal for couples or a small family and their canine chums.

Inside, the property is elegantly decorated in calming neutral colours, and you’ll soon feel at home here. The stylish kitchen has a breakfast bar where you can grab a slice of toast if you’re heading out early, while a stable door leads into the dining room, a lovely space to linger over a family meal. Afterwards, watch the Smart TV in the cosy lounge while keeping warm by the wood burner-effect gas fire. The bedrooms, both upstairs, are cutely named Cwtch and Cariad (Welsh words for cuddle and love). Exposed beams and sloped ceilings bring traditional cottage appeal, while an en-suite shower in each room adds the contemporary touch. The garden is surrounded by a wall with a high gate, making it safe for dogs to scamper around in.

The mystical village of Myddfai is 3 miles from the property. As well as being the location of Prince Charles’ Welsh residence, it’s also the setting for many myths and legends, including the mysterious Lady of the Lake. A little further afield is the Red Kite Feeding Station near Llanddeusant (8 miles). Experience the thrill of seeing these majestic birds of prey soaring overhead and diving for food. Elsewhere, explore the ruins of Dinefwr Castle (14 miles) and take the dogs for a walk around Usk Reservoir (13 miles).

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

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.
