An idyllic retreat for two, relax in stylish yet welcoming interiors with glorious views across The Usk Valley after a day walking, hiking and biking in the surrounding mountains, meadows and woodlands.

A cosy cottage surrounded by farmland and well situated for exploring the Brecon Beacons, couples can find seclusion and activities to fill their days at this retreat. With lovely views over the surrounding fields from the garden, sit with a coffee and enjoy breakfast as the sun comes up over the countryside.

With exposed stone walls and beams reflecting the age of the cottage, dark wood fittings complement neutral furnishings creating an atmosphere of sophistication in this cosy bolthole for two. After a delicious meal, climb a few steps to the beautifully furnished lounge, curling up on the sofa with a glass of wine by the warming wood burner. Wake below exposed beams amongst elegant interiors in the bedroom to wonderful views across the Usk Valley to the Talybont Valley. Open the granary door and take your morning coffee to the little terrace and garden, the perfect spot to soak up the sun. Fire up the BBQ in the evening or potter to the pub a mile down the road for a hassle-free evening meal.

Located within 3 miles of Llangynidr and Bwlch, guests have a few villages to explore not far from the property. Crickhowell (7.5 miles) and Abergavenny (13 miles) are worth a visit to peruse the independent shops, farm shops, restaurants, and pubs. Stretch those legs with walks along the River Usk, or hire a kayak and paddle along the Brecon and Monmouth Canal (1.5 miles). Get the pulse racing at Llangorse Activity Centre (4.5 miles) with its climbing wall while younger children can enjoy the soft play at Cantref Adventure Farm (7.5 miles). Discover iconic mountains and rich countryside in the Sugar Loaf and Usk Valley (13 miles) or take the Brecon Mountain Railway (16 miles) from Pant to Torpantau, another great dog-friendly attraction nearby.

The cottage is up a private road and extremely peaceful. It is very well equipped with high quality furnishings. Plenty of walks from the cottage. The next towns of Crickhowell and Brecon are worth visiting. Good walks along the canal at Talybont on Usk. We met the owners and the gentleman who was helping out with the land maintenance and they wereRead more very polite and welcoming with plenty of recommendations. Diane & Jimmy Hide

Beautiful cottage in a great location for exploring with some good pub/restaurants a short drive away. Emma & John made us feel very welcome and couldn't have done more, and Archie the Spaniel would always come back for one more throw of his ball
