Keepers Cottage is one of a pair of pretty whitewashed traditional stone cottages, with the most amazing views, that until recently were used by the game keepers on a country estate in the heart of The Brecon Beacons. The cottages both have the most stunning views over to the Black Mountains and Hay Bluff and have an enclosed garden so safe for pets. 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 which is right on the doorstep.
Down the end of the lane is a local pub The Plough & Harrow and an excellent award winning restaurant "Eat Sleep and Drink" The Felin Fach Griffin (very important to book if you want to eat). Really worth a visit.
