Wrought iron railings around the patio and gates at either end that can be locked ensure that the garden is safe and there is ample space to leave mountain bikes. It is very convenient and also easy to park close to the front door.
Set in a very easy location, accessible in all weather conditions on the road between Builth Wells, Hay-on-Wye and Brecon so a perfect place to stay to explore The Wye Valley and up into Mid Wales, The Black Mountains, only seven miles drive through to Hay-on-Wye or The Brecon Beacons.
Builth Wells is an easy 8 miles drive with The Royal Welsh Showground and all the attendant events held there. The wilder country of Mid Wales, The Elan Valley, Llandrindod Wells are all only a short drive.
Llangoed Hall is a couple of minutes down the road - so a perfect location if attending a wedding there.
Some of the best Trout, Salmon and Barbel fishing in Wales on The River Wye ? fishing beats to be booked and tickets available through www.wyeuskfoundation.org.
From the door there are walks up through the woodlands onto Llangoed Common behind the cottage, or the Wye Valley walk goes through the fields opposite the cottage. There are also several excellent places to eat, the recently newly re-opened Griffin in Llyswen that offers home cooked meals and is always welcoming and friendly; The rather grand Llangoed Hall where there are very often weddings being held www.llangoedhall.co.uk is a couple of minutes down the road and offers exceptionally high standard cuisine. The Mill at Talgarth is also well worth a visit to see the corn being milled and to try their artisan breads or have a snack in their cafe.
It is only two miles into Llyswen with a shop, garage and tea room as well as the pub.
For a lunch or perhaps a cream tea it is always worth visiting The Honey Cafe or The Railway Line Garden Centre, or Erwood Station Gallery is recommended by the cottage owners for excellent Coffee & cake.
Hay-on-Wye also has a good selection of restaurants and pubs, Foyles in Glasbury and The River Cafe on the bridge at Glasbury. The Griffin at Felin Fach is also worth a visit but you usually need to book for dinner.
Staying at Jasmine Cottage you will be spoilt for choice for places to visit and places to eat.

Unforgettable views, valleys, lakes and endless space. The Epynt mountain range, the Abergwesyn Valley, and the Cambrian Mountains - remote, wild and sparsely populated. Combine this landscape with the old spa towns of Builth Wells, Llandrindod Wells and Llanwyrtd Wells and you've got an undiscovered gem of an area. Famous for ambitious conservation projects, extraordinary events - Man vs Horse and Underwater Bog Snorkling and the excellent mountain biking in the area, but there's plenty more to discover in this area North of Brecon.
