Nestled in one of the most beautiful parts of the Brecon Beacons National Park, mountains, reservoirs, great country pubs and views for miles, this property is a treat to uncover.  Picnic above the cottage looking out across the Black Mountains, stride out for miles straight from the door.  Bike hire easily available too. The cathedral town of Brecon lies in one direction, Crickhowell and foodie haven Abergavenny in the other, with bookish Hay on Wye a delight for those who love to spend a day rummaging through bookshops and antique stores.

One of a pair of pretty pink adjoined cottages converted from the stables of its beautiful parent manor house, there is an abundance of views, birdsong and country living style from the moment you arrive. Step through the old stable door to open-plan living, set a match to the wood burning stove and relax as it blasts out the heat throughout chillier months.   Enjoy lazy breakfasts on the terrace when the sun shines. Keen cook, Joanna has ensured the kitchen is the pride of the cottage, and super well equipped, along with fresh local eggs and juice to enjoy with your Bara Brith on arrival.

Sumptuous linens, pretty curtains and outstanding bedroom window views await upstairs, with bathroom under the eaves and Korres toiletries setting the tone for relaxation.

Pick your perfect picnic spot up on the grassy bank, (there’s a helpful rug in the cottage), or spend a night stargazing on the terrace, taking advantage of the International Dark Sky Reserve.   Whatever the time of day,  the views are pretty special.

WALK & CYCLE:  Something for every level of fitness: miles of gentle strolls and cycle rides along the Brecon & Monmouth Canal, or hours of arduous (yet rewarding) uphill hauls within the Brecon Beacon mountain range. Talybont Reservoir is within very easy reach with lovely trails to explore.

TOWNS & VILLAGES:  Very well located between our favourite four Welsh towns of Hay on Wye, Brecon, Crickhowell and Abergavenny. The cottage is a top spot for exploring independent stores and Welsh heritage. You can also be in the capital, Cardiff, within 40 minutes.

WINE & DINE: Whether it's a country pub, or the finest of Michelin starred fayre, there is something for all tastes.  One of Wales best pubs, The Felin Fach Griffin is within 10 minutes drive, a Sugar & Loaf favourite, with a free round of local drinks for S&L guests when you dine (mention it when you book your table).

LOCAL FAYRE:  With the Welsh Venison Centre just a five minute drive away in the car, a great new deli in Brecon, as well as the delicious local Llanfaes Dairy for ice cream puds there are great ingredients in abundance.....making cooking on holiday more of a pleasure than ever!

SNOOZE IN A SPA:  Peterstone Court is a grand old country hotel a few short miles away, with relaxing spa and treatment rooms, as well as a swimming pool available to spa guests.

ON THE RIVER:  The Rivers Usk & Wye are both nearby for fishing.  Day permits for the Usk are available in Crickhowell and canoes for the River Wye can be rented in Glasbury, conveniently located by a delicious cafe.

Wonderful short break away in this beautiful and comfortable cottage. All the little extras to make our stay truly enjoyable were included, such as extra pillows, toiletries, washing up liquid, washing powder, and we were even give some milk, eggs and cake to keep us going for the first evening!

We have an excellent stay at this cottage, was so cosy, beautifully renovated and perfect quiet location. The location at the top of a hill was hard on the legs returning from our rides and hikes but good exercise! Loved the fire and treats on arrival to. Plus bike storage and excellent communication with owner, plus lovely bathroom and comfy bed!
