A very comfortable and recently renovated double fronted pretty self catering stone cottage in the small and peaceful village of Trecastle in The Brecon Beacons.

The cottage was once part of another old village pub called The Rising Sun.  The cottage is tucked away from the main road and with parking and a little enclosed garden. Behind the cottage is a newly built attractive stone shed ideal for the safe and secure storage of mountain bikes; the cottage is close to many excellent mountain bike routes.

This small village has  a very interesting Antique Centre just  a few minutes stroll.  From Trecastle it is a three minute drive to Sennybridge and a twenty minute drive to both Brecon and Llandovery.  

Follow the lane running past the cottage and visit the waterfall country and some really stunning walks.

A great place to stay if you are exploring the Brecon Beacons National Park - easy to reach The Waterfall County and Dan-yr-Ogof Caves and there are plenty of scenic drives to enjoy.  If you  want to travel south down towards Swansea and the Valley towns Rising Sun Cottage is a good base.

Visitors are always delighted to arrive and find a nice bottle of wine and Lavender biscuits waiting for them.


Sleeps 4 - 2 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms.
