Property code: BN003

A spacious rural retreat for families and friends offering stylish accommodation with walking and cycling routes straight from the front door through the stunning Brecon Beacons.

Set in an idyllic location, surrounded by Welsh countryside, this beautiful property is the perfect place to switch off. The spacious cottage is packed with original features and has a large lawn where children and dogs can play, as well as a pool table and trampoline to keep guests of all ages entertained. Enjoy peaceful walks from your doorstep around Talybont Reservoir or along the Taff Trail. The pretty village of Talybont-on-Usk is just 4 miles away.

The remote hideaway oozes rustic charm. After a day of exploring, return to the property to curl up in front of the roaring wood burner with a hot chocolate and your favourite book. Underfloor heating throughout ensures the property is always warm and inviting and the farmhouse-style kitchen/diner is a joy to cook in, with cute fairy lights and impressive stone flooring. From here, steps lead to the stunning lounge, where magnificent arched windows look out over the gardens. In the evening, challenge your fellow guests to a game of pool or table football. Outside, dine alfresco on the terrace as the sun sets over the mountains and toast your holiday with a ‘iechyd da!’.

The area is a haven for walkers. Pull on your hiking boots for a gentle, circular stroll around Talybont Reservoir, or head to nearby Pen y Fan (11 miles) to take on the challenge of the highest mountain in southern Britain. The waterfalls of Blaen-y-Glyn are also a must for the itinerary – they’re particularly dramatic after a heavy downpour. For a slightly different perspective on the Brecon Beacons, enjoy a ride on the Brecon Mountain Railway, which takes you on a magical journey deep into the heart of the national park. Round off your day with a hearty meal in one of Talybont-on-Usk’s traditional village pubs.

What a gem. Surrounded by stunning views and spacious indoors and out. The large well equipped kitchen was great. There were seven adults in our group but we never ran out of crockery, cutlery, pans, serving dishes etc. Honestly, if the kitchen hasn't got it you don't need it. There was always plenty of hot water for showers too which in my experieRead morence isn't always the case when you are a larger group. Rhiannon and Nick are wonderful hosts and very knowledgeable.
