  • Handsome stone cottage on the edge of Brecon town
  • Ideal for walks through the beautiful Brecon Beacons
  • Picturesque views across water meadows and the River Usk
Property code: BN134

A handsome holiday home, marrying period character with comfort and offering exceptional access to the bustling cathedral town, as well as to the scenic Brecon Beacons.

Experience the best of both worlds in this magnificent property, which has a rural setting, yet is just 0.5 miles from the centre of Brecon. Sleeping five guests, the detached house makes the perfect couples’ retreat, as well as being ideal for small families. The property’s piece de resistance is its immaculate garden, where you can unwind and admire the far-reaching views. The surrounding area is a haven for walkers, with routes from your doorstep deep into the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The house has been lovingly furnished, with a fine collection of furniture, well-stocked bookshelves, and gorgeous artwork. The property has a quaint sense of style, with floral and gingham fabrics in the living areas and bedrooms. Steps lead to the reception hall of the period stone property and into the light and bright kitchen area. Rustle up a tasty meal from ingredients collected on your travels, to enjoy at the round table in the bay window. After dinner, get cosy in the lounge in front of the warming wood burner, to read a book or gaze out the window at the glorious view across the water meadows. French doors take you to the beautiful, enclosed garden, which is laid to lawn and has a patio area for al fresco dining. It’s easy to have a car-free holiday at this property, setting out on foot for memorable walks along the River Usk or Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, followed by a delicious lunch at one of the many independent cafes or restaurants in Brecon. Alternatively, head to the Canal Basin, where you can hire a canal boat to get a whole new perspective on the landscape. Picturesque Hay-on-Wye makes a lovely day out, especially for book lovers, and is just 16 miles from the property.

Possibly the nicest place we have stayed. A beautiful house with big garden and great views. It feels like you are remote as there are no real neighbours but you are five mins walk from town with all its amenities including possibly the best ice cream parlour ever.

Enjoyed our family stay in this lovely holiday home. Location is excellent, peaceful with a large garden and yet only a short walk into Brecon town centre. Shops, restaurants, museums etc. It was a great base from which to explore the surrounding Welsh countryside. Loved our stay here.

A spacious, characterful, sympatheticaly renovated property in a fabulous location. Central Brecon, but incredibly quiet. We did have some maintenance and cleanliness issues, and freezer which I had to defrost. These were reported to the caretaker. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the location.

An updated shower in a larger cabinet would be good. Other than that, our only other comment would be that the sash windows are very heavy & difficult to open. As our week in June was one of the hottest in the year, more ventilation in the bedroom would have been appreciated.

Very comfortable cottage in a lovely position in Brecon, with a feeling of being in the countryside while being close to all amenities. Lovely sitting room and kitchen. Only niggles were damp patches in main bedroom and wafer thin curtains.

This very spacious cottage is more a house than a cottage. Great location with sun in the garden all day. We were lucky that we could have breakfast in the garden each morning. The cottage is close to town but quiet, especially at night. Just some dog walkers along the paths on both sides of the house and the school boys and girls doing their sportRead mores. On walking distance to the town centre with some restaurants. Hide
