A tucked away idyllic and romantic end of terrace self-catering cottage in the village of Talybont-on-Usk in the heart of The Brecon Beacons National Park.  The cottage is warm and cosy, set beside the tumbling River Caerfanell.  The sheltered and secluded riverside garden is a delight. Visitors are welcome to bring a well behaved dog.  There are plenty of walks right from the door along The Brecon and Monmouth Canal - only one minute away, or up into the hills, mountain bike on The Taff Trail (again just across the road).  Stroll to the two local pubs, a restaurant at The Rest and the village shop with post office and cafe is always popular and they serve an excellent breakfast.

Sleeps 4. Two bedrooms & two bathrooms.

The handmade wooden kitchen is very well equipped with a double oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and a washing machine.

Up a couple of steps to the sitting room with a dining table and chairs, sofa and chairs, a large multi-fuel/wood burning stove.  Large TV with Free Sat , DVD and WIFI.  Doors lead out to the sheltered and secluded riverside garden and summerhouse.

A downstairs bathroom with a bath with an electric shower over, a handbasin and toilet.

Up a flight of original steep wooden stairs that curve round behind the fireplace and chimney to two bedrooms:

Bedroom 1: A pretty bedroom with a double bed.

Bedroom 2:  Down a couple of steps, with a low ceiling (not ideal for very tall people) are twin beds.

Bathroom: The free-standing roll top bath has a handheld shower and a lovely view of the tumbling river below. There is also a hand basin and toilet.

The cottage garden is right beside the river and close to the front door there is a fairly steep part of the river bank. Youngish children and dogs would need to be well surpervised.
