A pretty whitewashed traditional stone cottage, one of a pair that until recently were used by the game keepers on a country estate. The cottage has the most stunning views over to The Black Mountains and Hay Bluff and set in its own enclosed garden, so safe for a pet. This is a wonderful place to sit peacefully and just breathe easily, relax and enjoy the views or just wander out of the door up onto Llandefalle Common -right on the doorstep.



Sleeps 3 + 1 - 2 bedrooms


The cottage has been renovated recently with a new kitchen with an electric cooker, a large fridge freezer, a dishwasher and a washing machine.
