Amongst rolling green hills and farmland. 3 miles from Sennybridge and 9 miles from Brecon.

With a huge variety of country walks from the door, glorious views and masses of wildlife including otters, salmon and trout.  Meadow Malt House is a converted Malt House - where they used to brew the beer and dates from the 17th century original old malthouse. Now the cottage is cosy and comfortable with much of the soft furnishings handmade by the owner.
