A luxurious holiday cottage in the popular village of Talybont-on-Usk. Combining the "olde worlde" charm of the original Georgian House, with the contemporary bedrooms with fabulous en-suite bathrooms.  An exceptionally well equipped kitchen but this is hardly needed when you can pop next door if you want to, for an excellent meal. 

This is the perfect choice for visitors looking for comfort, style and gorgeous views across the valley. Not suitable for children (owners choice)

From the front door you can stroll along the tranquil Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal where painted narrow boats pass. Or walk along the tow path into the village with the other three pubs, craft gallery, the village shop, cafe and post office. The lane behind leads up to the Peaks of the Brecon Beacons and there is a picnic site with a breathtaking view over Talybont Reservoir.
