This really is a delightful romantic and picturesque traditional Welsh Cottage in an beautiful spot near the end of a stunningly beautiful remote valley. There is a trout stream running behind the cottage and a stone shed where mountain bikes can be locked up. Just sit beside the brook and enjoy the peace and quiet or walk from here straight up into the Brecon Beacons or hire mountain bikes and join The Taff Trail.
Sleeps 2 - 1 Bedroom
The cottage has recently been completely renovated with a newly fitted kitchen containing an electric cooker, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, fridge with a small freezer. The back door leads out to a small glass conservatory looking out over the River Crawnon which is only a few yards away down the grassy bank. There is a warm and friendly sitting room with a dining table, large stone inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove, as well as electric underfloor heating, there are oak beams, a couple of low beams where you need to mind your head, a flat screen digital TV and DVD and comfortable new sofa and chairs. The outlook from the cottage is very rural, it is up the hillside with rolling meadows dotted with grazing sheep, across the river to a farmhouse in the distance and again with the hillside rising up with woodland and sheep.
The stairs are the original ones, very steep and fairly narrow and probably unsuitable for anyone with walking difficulties.
It is worth the climb at the top of the stairs there is a gorgeous romantic bedroom, with fairly low beams so beware of your head, and a beautiful king size bed with lovely linen - an en-suite bathroom with a bath with a shower over (tap operated) hand basin and toilet.
Close to Llangynidr
Crawnon River Cottage is three miles from the village of Llangynidr down the valley - it is a long three miles up the narrow winding valley making the cottages seem more isolated. At Crawnon River Cottage there is a single storey cottage on the side with its completely separate access and garden where the owners' mother quietly lives. The owner lives just up the lane in a converted chapel with free range chickens that roam freely.
This is a perfect cottage to walk or mountain bike from - foot paths lead up to Tor y Foel, Llangynidr Mountain, The Chartists Cave and the Dyffryn Crawnon Nature Reserve is nearby with its great diversity of bird species. The Brecon and Monmouthshire canal can be reached on foot via the quiet single track road. For Mountain Biking there is a bridleway from the cottage up onto the Taff Trail, a long distance trail designed specially for mountain bikers. The owner, who is an experienced activity leader can help organise mountain bike hire, guided walks and other outdoor activities if required.
The village of Llangynidr is a thriving little community with two active local pubs both offering good food and a village shop with post office. The Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal goes through the centre of the village making this an interesting stop on a walk with the locks and the various canal boats and other water activities.
