Property code: 82705

A sympathetically restored cottage set within the grounds of a heritage site and former ironworks complex, perfect for couples wanting to explore the Brecon Beacons National Park.

This stunning cottage is the ideal rural retreat for couples looking to explore the unspoilt Welsh countryside. Situated within the former Nantyglo Ironworks complex, the Roundhouse Towers on the farm are a symbol of Wales’ industrial heritage. Nestled on the southern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, there is an abundance of walking and cycling opportunities, many of which are from your doorstep, so be prepared to immerse yourselves in the natural beauty and tranquillity of rural Wales.

One of three sympathetically renovated Grade II-listed properties, this charming home is bright and airy throughout, with original features sitting effortlessly alongside contemporary style. The combination of the white exterior and the wooden front door continues inside with neutral tones highlighting the natural wooden tones. On entering, you’ll find yourselves in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with everything you’ll need for a comfortable stay. The bespoke wooden staircase leads up to the double bedroom, which again, has an elegant simplicity about it. A shower room completes the accommodation. Outside, enjoy a morning coffee outside your front door. There is also a communal fire pit and bike/canoe storage.

Outdoor enthusiasts will be in their element here as you’re surrounded by the magic and beauty of the Welsh countryside. If you like challenging walks with the reward of sweeping panoramas, head to Sugar Loaf Mountain or Table Mountain (within 11.5 miles) in the Brecon Beacons. For something less strenuous, perhaps try Parc Bryn Bach, a nature reserve and activity centre (8 miles). For those intrigued by Wales’ industrial past, you can find out more at the Big Pit National Coal Museum (6 miles). Wales has lots of pretty market towns, which boast local delicacies and crafts in their independent shops. For this, head to Abergavenny, Crickhowell (both 10 miles) or Brecon (20 miles).

Fantastic cottages. We booked all 3 for a family break. The cleanliness was superb, the decor is modern and fresh. The equipment is adequate. The location is perfect for a base for days out. We used the enclosed garden for Henrietta in the evenings with the chiminea. William and Mary don't have a private garden, they share a patio across the drive.Read more There isn't a washing machine which wasn't a problem on this occasion but with young children it's usually a must. Highly recommend these cottages. Hide

A very clean and modern holiday rental. Mary had everything we needed for our stay - everything was in full working order and the owners had thought of everything to make our stay carefree. Major supermarket is just a few minutes drive and its location close to the A465 Heads of the Valleys Road mean its perfectly located to explore the many walks Read moreand sights Wales has to offer.
