Penrheol House - (House at the End of the Lane) - Llechfaen (place of Flat Stones)
Sleeps seven guests in three bedrooms: this cottage is a Landscape Painter's Dream with some of the very best panoramic views in The Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales. This unexpectedly spacious offers fantastic accommodation for family holidays and some of the best views of the Brecon Beacons. Probably dating from the 18th Century and originally a Welsh longhouse (Ty Hir). There is an excellent pub The Three Horse Shoes in Groesffordd with an award winning chef, Two AA Rosettes and Best Dining Pub in Powys award- so make sure you book in advance. Whether you intend to walk, cycle, birdwatch or just chill in the house and mature garden (supplied with good furniture for outdoor dining) Penrheol House would be hard to beat.

Penrheol Farmhouse was, unusually for farms in the Usk Valley, in freehold ownership during the 19th Century of the farming family and formed the central homestead of Penrheol Farm. The house has since been sympathetically modernised and recently completely renovated while retaining its original charm.
The house is well and comfortably furnished with both antique and modern furniture, oak parquet flooring throughout the ground floor and original artworks in all rooms. And while the rigours of 18th century rural life have been mitigated by 21st Century full central heating and a wood burning stove (set in the original stone wall), the pleasures of Welsh country life in the quiet friendly hamlet of Llechfaen (Place of Flat Stones) are timeless.
With excellent pub dining nearby, whether you intend to walk, cycle, birdwatch or just chill in house or mature garden (supplied with good furniture for outdoor dining) Penrheol Farmhouse would be hard to beat.
