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 and within easy walking distance to The Castle Coaching Inn.

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.

Customer Testimonials

Mr G Mugridge - 28th April 2017

A super cottage and a super time, Lovely cottage with lots of very nice touches. The fire was great and it was good to be able to walk from the cottage. The walk from here round the lake is excellent, but it's about a 12 mile route. If you'd like a stroll drive to the car park by the dam.

Mrs. S Denby - 19th May 2017

Ms. K West - 8th July 2017

Goodies much appreciated, a very relaxing week both in the cottage and out and about in the Brecon Beacons. Weather was overcast but dry, ideal for walking, but where? The choice is overwhelming and varied something for everyone. Couldn't want for anything more from the cottage and defiantly the loveliest smelling one we have ever been to!

Mrs. A Foot - 4th August 2017

We've had a lovely stay in the rising sun cottage. It was well equipped with lovely furnishings and lots of nice extra touches and smelt great! We've enjoyed walking and mountain biking. Brecon is a lovely town and the boys were able to experience 'the coliseum cinema' which is how my husband and I remember the cinema. It's a lovely part of the country and thank you to the owner for the wine and biscuits, much appreciated!
