Full of character, this quirky one-bedroom apartment boasts some truly magnificent views. Star gaze by night, dine alfresco on the balcony or head off to tackle the summit of Pen y Fan.

Nestled in one of the most beautiful parts of the Brecon Beacons National Park, with mountains, reservoirs, great country pubs and views for miles. The cathedral town of Brecon lies in one direction, Crickhowell and foodie haven Abergavenny lies in the other, with Hay-on-Wye a delight for rummaging through book shops and antique stores. There are numerous trails for walking, cycling and riding throughout the Brecon Beacons; or try sailing, paddle boarding and kayaking at Llangorse Lake. Train enthusiasts will love the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway whilst avid historians wouldn’t want to miss the Big Pit Mining Museum. There is a shop, pub and restaurant within 4 miles.

 

Comprising the top floor of Cantref House, this bright and colourful self-contained apartment is surprisingly spacious and  benefits from its own entrance which is accessed up 26 outdoor steps. On entering you will find a very well-equipped kitchen with an electric oven and induction hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, coffee machine, and toaster make mealtimes pleasurable. Dine alfresco morning, noon and night on the balcony and make the most of the mesmerising dark skies with the telescope. From the kitchen you enter the cheerful living room with two sofas, which boasts fantastic views towards the Brecon Beacons, and the electric wood burner effect fire makes for a cosy evening. Down a small hallway you will find the inviting double bedroom, wake to wonderful views and after all your walks taking in the every changing scenery of the surrounding areas, enjoy a shower in the stylish bathroom.

Fantastic place. Im particular about cleanliness and normally end up cleaning on arrival, I did not need to in this place, even the sofa cushions felt clean. Lovely welcome pack of wine and fresh bread, milk, butter, cereals and tea and coffee and home made apple juice in the fridge. The location is perfect for walkers and access to Brecon. Sheila Read morethe host is friendly but discreet so its very private. The balcony was lovely (pictures dont do it justice) especially in the late afternoon sun. Hide

The welcome basket was particularly a nice touch and the complement of tea, coffee, and biscuits was also appreciated! Hide
