With the most glorious panoramic views, a delightful and comfortable south facing cottage with a sunny patio; this comfy little cottage was originally part of Trallong Village School. This small quiet hamlet is within easy reach of the A40, the Brecon to Llandovery Road. It lies on the south facing side of the Usk Valley looking toward Pen-y-Fan and is 4 miles from Brecon, with the nearest shops. Resident red kite are usually soaring overhead and there are otter in the River Usk below the cottage with a wealth of other wildlife in this very peaceful rural part of the National Park. The lane to Trallong passes over the old hump-backed Usk River Bridge where the river is wide and slow with cattle and sheep grazing at the waters' edge. The Penpont organic kitchen garden is nearby and has a seasonal shop selling excellent produce.
The owner of the cottage is a very keen walker and has left maps in the cottage of The Brecon Beacons for visitors to borrow and written descriptions of circular walks from the cottage, she has also supplied plenty more local information with books of the area. The owner is also a dog lover and is happy to welcome two well behaved small dogs to the cottage on the condition they do not go on the furniture.
The Views from the cottage windows (top bedroom particularly) are outstanding - and you can see almost the entire length of The Brecon Beacons National Park, from Hay Bluff and The Black Mountains in the east, past the central Beacons themselves, and on to the Black Mountain and Carmarthen Fans in the west; a 30-mile mountain view - that cannot be ignored!! Immediately below the cottage is rolling farmland and occasional farmsteads. With a pair of binoculars you can see the walkers on the peaks - the highest mountains in The National Park.
