Llangoedmor House is a Grade II listed Georgian house in the Brecon Beacons National Park and the Fforest Fawr UNESCO Global Geopark in the beautiful village of Myddfai.
The cottage now has new owners and has been completely renovated and re-decorated to make it a delightful, comfortable home-from-home cottage with a log-burning stove, oak beams, stone walls and a pretty, private, courtyard herb garden, perfect for outdoor dining, and busy with little birds year-round.
The village of Myddfai - famous for the ancient herbalists 'The Physicians of Myddfai' - is home to the 13th century St. Michael's Church, renowned for its five huge arches. The village boasts an excellent visitors' centre, shop and cafe, the building of which was the subject of the BBC's Village SOS. The centre, opened by Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall - near neighbours at the Llwynywermod Estate - sells locally made produce and gifts and hosts a book swap service, a monthly farmers' market and other occasional events, talks and activities.
Nearby are the Usk Reservoir, Llyn y Fan Fach of the 'Lady of the Lake' legend - and also from the legend Esgairllaithdy Farm from where one can buy lamb that grazed on the hills within sight of the house - and the Red Kite feeding centre at Llanddeusant.
Llangoedmor House is a superb base for walkers, wildlife enthusiasts or those just seeking a quiet retreat in a beautiful place.
