With a history dating back to the 17th Century, stone roof, oak floors and thick old beams this is a proper Welsh Cottage.  Just yards away from historic Tretower Castle and set in a really convenient location for exploring the Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons National Park and the Wye Valley.

Pop your car into the private parking space, draw in a deep breath of the pure country air and enjoy the mountain view.  Then step inside for a memorable family holiday.  Leading straight into the kitchen, it is light and bright, with Shaker style country units, a farmhouse dining table and thoughtful welcome basket, which includes some yummy home-made Welsh treats.

The kitchen is equally perfect for the family pet.  With simple to clean floors, an enclosed outdoor space, plus hallway where Rover can enjoy his supper, you will also find bowls and a floor mat provided.

Step through into a large, yet very cosy living space. Discover deep leather sofas, a Smart TV & Blu-Ray player, as well as a huge wood burning stove crackling away in the fireplace. There is a dining table too, perfect for intimate suppers.

Upstairs you will find a pretty twin bedroom and a cosy double, freshly decorated and complete with crisp bed linen, squishy duvets and comfy throws.  Designed to be flexible, there is a great upstairs playroom, with toys awaiting smaller guests, which is just across the hallway from the master bedroom.  The plan being parents of younger children can attempt a holiday lie-in whilst the little ones safely play.  There is also a TV/DVD player in the playroom, which also has a sofa bed which can sleep a further guest.

There is a downstairs cloakroom and upstairs family bathroom.  This property has been carefully thought through to make a great space for a family of 4 - 5, a group of friends or a cosy romantic bolt hole for a week in the hills.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

TAKE A HIKE:  Whether it's a simple stroll across the fields for afternoon tea at the local country house hotel, or a serious stride up into the hills, the cottage is in a good location for all fitness levels and great for both the Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons and gentler Wye Valley.

PEDAL ON:  There is some exceptional road cycling, with great lanes to whizz down and a few routes to be found on Garmin worth following.  Mountain bikers will be in their element too. There is cycle hire available in both Brecon & Hay on Wye.

TERRIFIC TOWNS: There are some great little market towns around. Hay on Wye is possibly the most famous, with thirty plus second hand bookshops and a great place to pick up an original gift or two. Brecon is nearby with Cathedral, canal and Welsh culture to explore. Or, nip into Crickhowell, just a couple of miles away for a decent butchers, good pubs and lovely coffee shops. You can be in Abergavenny within 20 minutes too, with Tuesday market and some good new independent stores, such as Number 46 for on trend design and Vintage Vision for great vintage clothing.

GREAT GRUB TO COOK:  Meat lovers will really appreciate the Welsh Venison Centre, just a few miles further along the A40 towards Brecon.  We love Cashells, the friendly family butchers in Crickhowell,  which is great for a quick resupply of lovely food.

LET SOMEONE ELSE DO THE WORK:  Nantyffin Cider Mill is just a mile away, as is the dog friendly Farmers Arms in Cwmdu. It's worth a stop at The River Cafe in Glasbury, en-route to Hay on Wye, for a decent Italian lunch or a slice of home made cake, as well as there being a canoe hire centre right next door if you prefer to paddle into town!

FOR THE KIDS:  Something to do in just about every weather!  Pony trekking, climbing and zip wires (including the longest zip wire in Europe, which we can vouch for being great fun for teenagers) can be found in Llangorse, as well as various water sports on Llangorse Lake. There is a soft play centre and a cinema in both Brecon & Abergavenny.  Cantreff Adventure Centre has pony trekking for all ages, as well as an animal petting area.

SNOOZE IN A SPA:  Peterstone Court, is just a few miles away and a great place for a lazy day!  Includes a relaxing spa, treatment rooms and a swimming pool for spa guests.

GOLFING & FISHING:  Pop into the Bridge Inn in Crickhowell for a day permit for the River Usk. Or pack your clubs for some impressive golf courses, including the Celtic Manor, recent home of the Ryder Cup and the Rolls Golf Club in rolling Monmouthshire Countryside.

SLEEPS 2 - 5: Two pretty bedrooms, a double and a twin, plus an upstairs playroom/third bedroom with sofa bed. (This can be made up upon request at the time of making your booking) and is suitable for one extra adult. All bedding included.

BATHING:  Bathroom, with bath and shower, basin and loo. Downstairs cloakroom with basin and loo. Towels included.

RELAXING:  Large living room with oak beams, two cosy sofas, wood burning stove and dining table for six.

TECHY STUFF:  Full central heating throughout, Smart TV and Blu-ray Player in the living room, small flat screen TV and DVD in the playroom. Free Wi-Fi.

COOKING & DINING:  Well-equipped Shaker style family kitchen with electric oven and hob, dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge.  Farmhouse dining table.

OUTSIDE:  This is an attached cottage with a private enclosed courtyard to the rear of the property, with outdoor furniture and parasol, barbeque available on request.

PETS: Two well-behaved, trained dogs are very welcome here. Dogs are permitted downstairs only.

Mark, 14th August 2018

Owners very friendly and helpful. Cottage was immaculate and well equipped. 3-5 minutes walk to fields to walk the dogs. Tretower is Avery pretty village. For dining out you can turn right out of the property and Crickhowell is a few minutes away or turn right and the Farmers Arms is a few minutes away on the right.

Had an amazing stay at this wonderful cottage, it was so comfortable and lovely to come back to after exploring all of the lovely local places to visit. The owners who live next door were very welcoming and provided lots of information on places to visit.
