Bask in the sunshine on the balcony and gaze out across the river to see if you can spot a kingfisher or heron. This magical, riverside holiday home, which sleeps up to four guests in two bedrooms, is perfectly placed for anyone seeking the tranquillity of a semi-rural setting, as well as proximity to shops, cafes, restaurants and other town centre amenities. Wander less than 0.5 miles into town to go to the indoor market, cinema or theatre, as well as art galleries. Stroll along beside the River Usk to a spot where you can hire canoes or wander in the other direction to book a day boat. Indulge in mountain walks and follow cycle trails through the Brecon Beacons.

Make your way into the cottage and climb a few steps up into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Beautifully designed, with an oak floor, sloping ceilings, contemporary furniture and furnishings, and a splash of colour here and there, this has everything you need for a relaxing stay. Settle down to a film on TV, pull open the bi-folding doors on to the balcony on sunny days and cook hearty breakfasts in your kitchen area to set everyone up for a full day of adventures. A WC can also be found on this level. The rest of your accommodation can be found on the floor below. Follow the stairs down to a hall or study area, as well as to your two enticing bedrooms, a king-size and a zip-and-link king-size (which can be made into a twin on request with 2’ 6” beds), and the family bathroom, which has a walk-in shower, as well as a bath and WC. The utility room, with useful washer/dryer, is at this level too.

Take a bottle of chilled wine or a cup of fresh coffee out on to the balcony. While away the hours looking for otters and other creatures. On very hot days, use the remote control to open the awning and create an area of cool shade. Parking for two medium-sized cars is available.

An exceptionally well-appointed and attractive cottage overlooking the tree-lined Usk. Entrance from the drive-way is at first-floor level to the open-plan living area, while the bedrooms are at ground level - which works very well. An extra plus is that despite being in the centre of Brecon, its secluded location shields it from practically all trRead moreaffic noise. Many thanks to our thoughtful hosts - we will definitely be back. Hide

One of the best self catering cottages weve stayed in! The accommodation, comfort and attention to detail is fabulous. Location wise, its in the heart of Brecon and gives such easy access to travel around and explore the area. Could not fault anything and it was a fantastic stay after lockdown.

A beautiful upside down house in a picturesque location on the edge of town. So well equipped too. We loved being able to stroll into town for a coffee and pick up bits of shopping. The owners were very helpful and we were able to contact them by phone if needed. The driveway is a bit tight to turn into as described in the details but after the firRead morest day all was fine!

Beautiful cottage, in fact it was better than we had expected! The weather was stunning too, how lucky were we? Upside down living. Very handy to have a toilet near the living area. Very comfortable bedrooms, gorgeous bathroom and handy utility room. Close to the town (so very convenient) but felt like we were in the countryside with the balcony Read moreoverlooking the river. Very Covid safe and clean so we felt very comfortable. All facilities and extras you could possibly need and more. Tight parking space but fine for 2 small cars and great to have it on site. Loads of fantastic walks right from the cottage along the river, canal, promenade and up through the wood near the cathedral. Lots to see and do in the area within a short drive too. We loved Waterfall Country, Talybont-on-Usk (and the reservoir) and especially Llangores Lake. We enjoyed some local ice cream courtesy of Sue the owner too - nice touch. We have already recommended Dros Yr Afon to some friends and have no doubt we will be back to stay again one day. Hide

Just wonderful. Quality of art on the walls, plentiful supply of everything needed in every way, stylish and comfortable furnishings. Lovely little balcony to sit put on. Attention to detail. Can't speak highly enough of the gorgeous place.
