Ashford Cottage, an idyllic escape for 4, is perched high up on hillside with magnificent views across The Usk Valley, yet is just a short walk from the ever popular village of Talybont-on-Usk. This cottage ticks the box for a great many people, secluded and remote yet accessible - this is a perfect retreat, while at the same time is perfectly placed for cycling, walking and all sorts of outdoor activities .Reached up a private track (200 metres from the field gate) - Ashford Cottage is a wonderful place to stay.   The property is very simply styled ,giving it the perfect feeling of being able to relax in comfort and retains lots of the original features, especially the lovely old black and red quarry tiles and the arched chapel style windows. Once stayed in by David Bowie.

With walks from the door down the lane and along the canal -it is easy to reach the village and its many facilities.
