Penrheol House - (House at the top of the Road) - Llechfaen (place of Flat Stones) 

Sleeps 8 guests in four bedrooms.

 

This fabulous holiday cottage has probably the best views panoramic over the whole range of The Brecon Beacons of any of our cottages. It is a Landscape Painter's Dream with the length of the mountain range laid out before you, with the ever changing light and farming practices - it is different everytime you look. 

With very comfortable accommodation for a family holiday or for a group of friends.  With parts of original old farmhouse dating from the 17th Century this was an original Welsh Longhouse (Ty Hir).  There is an excellent village pub The Three Horse Shoes in the neighbouring village of Groesffordd (a walk over the fields or down the lane) with an award winning chef, Two AA Rosettes and Best Dining Pub in Powys award- so make sure you book in advance.   

 

Whether you intend to explore the area by car, walk, cycle, birdwatch or just relax peacefully in the house and mature garden, there is a BBQ and plenty of outside space and lovely lawns. Penrheol House would be hard to beat.

Penrheol Farmhouse was, unusually for farms in the Usk Valley, in freehold ownership during the 19th Century, and formed the central homestead of Penrheol Farm. The house has since been sympathetically modernised and recently completely renovated while retaining its original charm.  

The house is well and comfortably furnished with both antique and modern furniture, oak parquet flooring throughout the ground floor and original artworks in all rooms. And while the rigours of 18th century rural life have been mitigated by 21st Century full central heating and a wood burning stove (set in the original stone wall), the pleasures of Welsh country life in the quiet friendly hamlet of Llechfaen (Place of Flat Stones) are timeless.  

With excellent pub dining nearby, whether you intend to walk, cycle, birdwatch or just chill in house or mature garden (supplied with good furniture for outdoor dining) Penrheol Farmhouse would be hard to beat. 

 

For Guests thinking ahead to 2021 - this glorious house will have a new STUDIO designed specially for Art Groups and Artists. Prices to be discussed for use of the studio
