Crab Apple Cottage is a charming pretty little converted barn; a perfect romantic retreat for a weekend getaway. With a sunny stone terrace with table and chairs, this is a real sun trap and is a peaceful spot to sit and enjoy the surrounding countryside, with sheep grazing in the neighbouring meadows. A haven for bird watchers, you're sure to catch a glimpse of the ducks and geese flying over to nearby Llangorse Lake, resident red kites or the curlews with their wonderful haunting call. Crab Apple Cottage is a great place to stay, quietly tucked away in a very little known very picturesque valley with the most glorious views from every gateway on the lane up to the cottage. With safe lock up shed for cycle storage, a great place to bring mountain bikes and to be able to explore the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains whether by foot or by car. A walk down the lane, about a mile leads to the local pub in Llanfihangel Talyllyn, The Black Cock. There is also good pony trekking and an Activity Centre which offers all types of outdoor pursuits including a Climbing Wall in nearby Llangorse Village. Visitors are also close to Llangorse Lake with The Crannog and all the water sports and fishing there.
