  • Explore the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park
Property code: 42849

This cottage is ideally located in Brecon Beacons National Park, with the Brecon And Monmouth canal on your doorstep. A great location for walking and cycling alike.

Set just back from the Brecon and Monmouth Canal, the aptly named cottage has spectacular views from the sitting room and bedroom window, looking across the Canal and over to the Black Mountains.

Designed upside down, to take full advantage of the views, you step into this attached cottage and up the stairs to a really lovely, large open plan sitting room and kitchen. The sitting room has lots of light and two huge comfy leather armchairs, designed for total chilling in-front of the cosy wood burner.

The cottage was originally the laundry house for the village many decades ago, so the owners have ensured that the modern day facilities match up to the task too. With a well stocked, brand new kitchen and a lovely welcome pack awaiting you on arrival you will feel very much at home. There is a wooden farmhouse table in the kitchen, making it perfect for any occasion from romantic suppers for two, to family feeding time for four. The kitchen leads out onto a very sweet private garden, with a garden bench which looks over the cottage across to the mountains and a bench table for barbeques and outdoor dining.

Downstairs, there is a small lobby area, which is perfect for drying muddy paws after a walk in the hills, then leading through to a double bedroom, with a bright twin bedroom next door, enjoying great views across the hills from the bed!

The bathroom is fabulous, we were tempted to try it for ourselves, with a huge bath-tub, separate shower, two basins and a loo, it can easily cater for the family morning rush!

The cottage is in a great location to explore the beautiful Brecon Beacons. The views are outstanding from the property, and walks along the canal or in the local area are on the doorstep. Good places to eat nearby in Crickhowell and the Tuesday market at Abergavenny is well worth a visit. Its an area we will be revisiting!

Cannot fault and would highly recommend this property. Arrived to find a welcome hamper with bread, milk, butter, free range eggs, honey and various snacks which did not expect. Logs provided for log burner. Sat outside the property and got a visit from chickens and saw 2 Red kite birds. It's a short walk down by the canal to the town centre. Met KRead moreevin the owner with his dog while out walking who is very pleasant and only knew we had booked the property as we had our kilts on. Excellent property Hide

Spectacular views from the property. Great open plan area upstairs. Super pub in the village but be prepared for the steep hill at the end of the road walk back to the cottage - you don't get great views by being on the flat! Excellent walks, for all abilities, on the doorstep.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location with stunning views across the valley to Crickhowell. You literally walk out the door onto the canal path and the many walks into the hills. The cottage is spacious and very well equipped with everything you could need. Pretty rear garden that made a pleasant spot to drink our morning coffee.

A great cottage, Lovely space upstairs with fabulous views, comfy sofas, a great big bath which was good after a day walking & comfy beds. . The cottage was spotlessly clean. It was great to be able to take long walks without having to take the car. We only used the car to arrive & depart. There are lots of lovely walks from the house.We would defiRead morenitely go back to the cottage if we wanted to do more walks round Crickhowell. I would recommend the Vine Tree restaurant, We had 2 lovely meals there Hide

Well appointed, cozy cottage with outstanding views, set amongst beautiful countryside. Only a short (15 min) walk into Crickhowell although, be warned, the walk home ends with a steep climb up hill. Worth it though for the views!
